Fired six weeks before Christmas, Kat Murphy spends most of her savings on seven magical days at Passionate Incorporated’s new Santa’s Village resort, trying to ignore the inevitable. Her only wish is to help her dying daughter enjoy the magic of Christmas. Plus, she hopes her five-year-old will be so distracted, that she will forget to ask Santa to bring her a daddy. After her daughter drags her over to Santa’s workshop to see the big man, Kat wonders if she can resist the hot guy playing the part of Santa. More importantly, does she want to?
Dominic Russo has spent the last eleven-hundred years atoning for a monstrous crime he doesn’t remember committing. As head detective for the agency in charge of policing Paranormal entities, his newest undercover assignment includes filling in for an errant Santa while searching for a murderous rogue. Dom initially resisted the assignment. After all, he’s a vampire who hasn’t allowed himself to be around children for over a thousand years. He just couldn’t risk being involved in another… incident. Will Dom survive two weeks of being near children, risking another blackout that sent him into a spiral of self-hate so long ago?
Everyone always told me I was crazy, so I believed them.
But I was wrong, and so were they.
I'm not crazy. It's the rest of the world that's blind to the monsters living among them. I should rejoice in my sanity, right?
Being clinically insane would be better than reality. In that scenario, the only person who's in danger is me. Stolen from my life to be sold off to the highest bidding vampire to live as a blood slave would seem like the worst of my problems.
Not even close.
Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae – beautiful, magical, deadly and a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles? Welcome to my world. What started out as a strange assignment, leads to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times and my friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike. Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae…every time he touches me or looks at me with those golden eyes seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment. My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.
