Happy Holidays, everyone!!!
I absolutely love this time of the year. People are hustling and bustling. Kids are gazing up into the night sky, hoping to see Santa. And, me, well, I’m usually curled on the couch with some hot chocolate—watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. 😉 Ah, the holidays!
I love watching Christmas Vacation for two reasons. First, because it’s hilarious. I can’t watch without laughing so hard I hurt. And the second reason? The movie always reminds me that no holiday celebration will be perfect. We don’t need to stress ourselves to a crazy degree as we strive for that glorious (unattainable) perfection. Something will go wrong somewhere—and we just need to relax and enjoy those “wrong” moments.
Moments that occur when you four-year-old grabs for a beautiful ornament on the tree—and winds up taking down the whole tree.
Moments that occur when you try your hardest to cook a perfect turkey—and the firefighters show up in all their glory because the neighbors were worried about the billowing smoke.
I bet you’ve had some interesting “moments” over the years. Sure, those moments might have left you feeling horrified at the time, but when you look back at them in your mind, weren’t they a little fun? Don’t they make you smile now?
So forget about perfection. Enjoy the madness. Enjoy all the surprises that will come your way.
Enjoy your holiday.

This holiday season has bite.
Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.
But fate has other plans for Ben.
Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.
’Tis the season…to be undead.
Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms…
Warning: This book features one very tortured vampire, a sexy ghost from his past, and hot scenes designed to melt the winter snow. Plenty of action, adult situations, and steamy times are ahead. Happy holidays!
If you’d like to share some of your holiday moments with me, I’d love to hear them!
