Father Christmas has just been damned to darkness.
Jane Devereux is adjusting to her new life as a nocturne fabulously. She runs the most popular nightclub in the French Quarter and is married to the hottest vampire in New Orleans.
When she accidentally runs over Santa Claus and has to turn him into a vampire to save him, her perfect undead life begins to crumble like a week-old sugar cookie.
Jane has three days to teach Santa the ways of the vampire and get him back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve.
Oh, and if that’s not stressful enough, her dad is coming for Christmas.
And he doesn’t know she’s a vampire.
Or that she’s married.
This book is part of a series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. The blurb of this story is intriguing, and I can’t wait to get sucked into it. This is more like a short story, albeit a quirky one. The premise is far-fetched, but I like including the paranormal characters in a Christmas tale. I didn’t find this especially funny, but I saw the attempts in the banter and one-liners. I did love the heroic stubborn females in the story.
We begin this book right, jumping into the crux of the matter with a well-placed sentence from Gaston. Jane is in denial, and we get the city this takes place in, New Orleans, and the paranormals and vampires, as you didn’t know from the title, some of the details in this story. It appears Jane and Gaston have an interesting relationship, but she is with Ethan.
This is quite the legend they have turned for Christmas for supernatural beings. The author takes this obscene idea for a story and runs with it. Still, the craziness of the concept is funny. Jane’s life is a hot mess. She has a sinful vampire boyfriend, a new vampire charger, and a political, human father to deal with. Mrs. Clause clears things up a little bit and reveals a twisted plot.
I mainly enjoyed this quirky, quick read for its outlandish concepts and sassy females. The author is sure punny in her storytelling, taking full advantage of the play on words. The story was sweet enough, but it gets steamy at the end. It wasn’t needed. I didn’t want the brand of humor in this book; it was much too forced, but I saw what the author was trying to do.
But overall, it was a different pick. I would love to find other Paranormal Holiday romance books, preferably full-length; please feel free to leave suggestions below in the comments box.
