Back Cover Blurb:

It has been seven years since Analette Dyson stopped practicing magic and headed to New York, where she created a new life, complete with a fabulous job, an apartment in Central Park West, and a sexy werewolf fiancé. She never planned on returning to her small home town in Maine, but when she learns her grandmother is ill, she decides to pop over for a visit and what better time than Christmas? Excited for her fiancé to meet her family, they head up a day early.

Worst idea ever!

After doing some last minute Christmas shopping, Analette returns to their hotel to find her fiancé in bed with another woman. Cursing the universe for her never ending bad luck with men and dreading telling her family about her cheating fiancé, she heads to the bar to self medicate.

Not one to celebrate the holidays, vampire and assassin, Cole McRae, has followed a lead to a rustic town in witch territory. But after a few days of research and waiting for his target to show, he begins to suspect he has wasted his time. That is, until he meets a curvaceous blonde with bewitching green eyes at the local bar. One night with the enchanting Analette could make this useless trip well worth his time.

Their passion is undeniable and unbeknownst to them, their fates are intertwined. Magic and romance will strike on Christmas, changing their lives forever.

My Review:

Greene introduces us to a variety of different supernaturals and really develops those that we meet closely in this story. The concept and strength of vampire claiming is apparent to anyone reading and made me fall in love with Cole a little more. She also develops the notion and workings of the assassins in a way that readers can understand it and connect with it. It all worked directly into the plot of the story, one which kept me on my toes, between the suspense and palpable chemistry between the characters. Greene is a visually descriptive author who really brings this all to life in a vivid manner. The well written, polished presentation makes it a joy to read.

I felt for both the main characters in this story from the moment that they were introduced. It wasn’t pity, but rather an emotional connection with them based on what they’d been through. I liked seeing both characters’ perspectives on the goings on. Not only did it add to the character development, but it also added a great deal of fun and heat to the story. The intense chemistry between the characters really drives the story forward.

This novella is fun for Christmas, or at any time of year. Greene has created a unique & unforgettable story for those who love hot supernaturals.
