Creatures of the Night and Santa’s Christmas duties don’t mix. Every myth and bedtime story tells you so.
But on Christmas Eve, when the Elves walked off the job over pension rights, it was time for me—Irwin, the only vampire on Santa’s payroll, despite recent diversity initiatives—and my trusty team to help out. Just deliver a few parcels, Santa asked me. Just help out on your local patch. Just for one night.
Armed with my reluctance to face all that human sentimentality, and accompanied by a wise-cracking werewolf and an unruly fairy with a taste for vodka, I did my best. Honest.
But we were heading for disaster until I came face-to-face with cute babysitter Benny. It’s Santa’s Number One Rule—no interaction with the clients. But Benny somehow managed to upset my appetite, inflame my libido, and restore my faith in the Christmas spirit, with one cheeky smile and a tasty body piercing.
It’s Christmas, and the show must go on!
This was a good short story but I honestly wish it would have ended differently. I was hoping at least for a happy ending but it just kind of ended is all.
It is not regular thing for a vampire, werewolf, and fairy to do the elves jobs of delivering Christmas presents for Santa but this year it was a must since the elves went on strike on Christmas Eve.
What could possibly go wrong, right? Well that would be being seen by a human which is against the rules. Wanting to taste that said human which is further against the rules. Lusting after said human just as much as wanting to taste is definitely a no no. Again what could possibly go wrong?
Well for Irwin (vampire) all these things happened and so much more. This Christmas Eve Irwin willing broke all the rules when he met Benny and would probably do so again if he has the oppo. As for Benny, he is definitely more then willing to help break those rules and so many more.
This was a decent book. The lead up to the end was really good. The book grabbed your attention and held it all the way to the end. Well that is until it was done and left me wondering “what just happened here? Did it really just end like that with nothing more to go on?” So other then the ending I enjoyed this short story. It was exciting till it got to that point.
