Vampires for Christmas

Looking for holiday stories with a little bite?

I have exactly what you're looking for.

Vampires for the holidays- come on you know you want a vampire for Christmas.

I had to have this one- simply because it's Jeaniene Frost. How could I say no to Bones for Christmas. I couldn't. I have to read everything she writes- even if it's a grocery list. Ok maybe not but if it's a book, novella or short I'm reading it and this was defiantly worth it.

I haven't read much Lynsay Sands but after reading this, I think I will be reading more.

In Lynsay Sands' "The Gift," Katricia Argeneau knows grey-eyed cop Teddy Brunswick is her life mate. She just needs to convince him they belong together, and being snowbound in a secluded cabin will make this a Christmas neither will forget.

It's "Home for the Holidays" in Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series. Cat and Bones may long to wrap presents and set up a tree, but this Christmas, an evil vampire and long-buried family secrets will threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer.

I read this one last year and loved it . Heidi Betts really knows how to keep the romance in paranormal romances. Her vampire stories are some of the sweetest, romantic books with bite you can sink your fangs into.

If you are a fan of sweet romances but would love to give paranormal romances a try- start here. Heidi's books won't scare you away with violence or bloodshed. Her characters are normal everyday people that fall in love- some of them just happen to have fangs.

"All I Vant for Christmas" introduces Connor, who loves trimming the Christmas tree, baking gingerbread cookies, and hanging the mistletoe. But his vampire siblings won't help. His friend Angelina sends party planner Jillian to the rescue. But when Jillian, who's mortal, discovers she's decking the halls for a family of vampires, she must decide between running for her life - or putting Connor's mistletoe to good use. 

In "A Vampire in Her Stocking," Vivian becomes heartbroken when she learns that her secret crush, Sean, is terminally ill. Confiding in Angelina, Vivian refuses to turn Sean into a vampire. Deciding to play Santa, Angelina changes Sean and leaves him wrapped in a red bow on Vivian's doorstep. Angelina, the heroine of 

"It's a Wonderful Bite," is happy with her boyfriend Ian, but she's ready for a commitment. After drinking eggnog and watching "It's a Wonderful Life" on Christmas Eve, Angelina falls into a dream where she is mortal and Ian isn't interested in her. Talk about the nightmare before Christmas! But Santa must have checked his list twice because this Christmas Angelina's wishes are coming true...

Here's another great collection of holiday tales filled with fangs from last year.

Sink your teeth into these while sitting in front of your tree.

Prepare for an exhilarating journey across the boundary of death into a shadowy, daring new world. As darkness falls on another year, five fanged rebels are ready to celebrate like never before.

It's a time for bloodlust and stolen kisses, for clandestine bites and forming new bonds beneath the mistletoe. Succumb to the forbidden as these powerful vampires give you a Christmas you'll never forget….

Here's a new one for this year featuring vampire tales from Michelle Hauf, Laurie London, Caridad Pineiro and Alexis Morgan. Dark and delicious tales that'll put you in the holiday spirit and have you searching for more books by these authors- especially if this is your introduction to their dark worlds.

All they want for Christmas is you…

It's the time of year for twinkling lights on trees and kisses under the mistletoe. Yet the passing of another year means nothing to the stunning immortals who lurk in the shadows of the new-fallen snow.

And they don't care if you've been naughty or nice.

Let four fanged lovers open your eyes to a passion you never dared to imagine. After all, there's no place like home for the holidays—and these dazzling vampires can't wait for an invitation.

Kerrelyn Sparks is an author you must read if you love vampire paranormal romances with lots of romance and humor.

Try this series, you'll love it.

Toni Davis's Christmas wish list

1. Springing my best friend from the psych ward.

2. Living somewhere that doesn't have coffins in the basement. Occupied coffins.

3. Finding Mr. Right. Please make him tall, dark, handsome, and alive.

This Christmas isn't so merry for Toni. Her best friend's been locked up in a mental hospital ever since she told the police she was attacked by vampires, and the only way for Toni to get her out is to prove that bloodsuckers really do exist. So she's taken a job as a bodyguard for the Undead, but she gets more than she bargained for, especially when she meets Ian MacPhie, a Scottish rascal looking for Ms. Right.

Although Ian's nearly five centuries old, he looks and acts like a twenty-seven-year-old hunk.

How can a dead man be so damn sexy? Could Mr. Wrong be Mr. Right?

So these are my recommendations for vampire holiday tales? Do you have any? How about other paranormal books featuring Christmas?

Hmmm I need to check out Kerrlyn Sparks (I may have spelled that wrong). Paranormal with vamps and humor, right up my alley!
Frosts Nighthuntress series is sort of around the holidays, various holidays. Either way it's always a good choice =)

haha, nice to know vamps get to have a holiday season, too! Though makes me wonder if Jewish and Muslim vamps have to keep kosher/halal!
