Yes, I know, Christmas is about 11.5 months away! But I like to read Christmas stories all year long, and this short story (87 pages) is a good one.

While we didn't get all the details about just who these people work for, I thought there was "enough" for us to get a clear picture of who the players are. I actually hope that we see more of the "agency" and more of these two.

The slime monster was interesting. Reminded me of Ghostbusters, and I did laugh, just a bit.

The UST between these two was o...more
This was a quick read but it was satisfying as it left me with a smile on my face. Rafe and Shannon have worked with each other as partners and during that time Rafe's feelings for Shannon has increased and he wishes that Shannon will sees him as more then he is; her partner and a vampire. Shannon tries to keep an emotional distance from Rafe because of her inability to let the past from haunting her. The developing passion that slowly erodes the walls around Shannon's heart was beautiful becaus...more

Very satisfying short holiday novella, I really enjoyed ever minute of it. This is going to be a short review because the book description says enough already, so I wont be going to spoil any detail of the story. I enjoyed reading the story and both Rafe and Shannon as characters. There is more story then sex, but once you get to the sex its hot. You’ll also find a hot shower scene. I would suggest this book to anyone that reads paranormal romance or erotic romance.
I thought that this would be an interesting book because of the cover and because it would be a paranormal romance, but I found this book to be quite boring. When I started off reading this book I found no parts particularly inresting and as I continued to read this book I lost more and more interest in this book. After a few chapters I gave up on reading further into this book.

Vampire for Christmas

What happens when you partner a Demon Hunter with a Vampire? Not telling you. You’ll just have to read this enjoyable Novella released for the holidays. But I will give you a smidgen of the story.

Shannon was employed by the Agency as a Demon Hunter after an attack on her and her family by a Vampire which left her entire family dead.

Rafe is also employed by the Agency and was brought on to see if he could be reformed. You see Rafe is a Vampire and did what Vampire’s do, hun...more

Having read Winters Kiss, I decided to find another Felicity Heaton book to see if she is a consistently good writer, and came across 'Vampire for Christmas' as a free download so thought I would give it a try as the previous book by her was so good. I thought this was a good storyline, with a clear build up of the situation and exploration of the characters history. It gave enough for the reader to understand the plot and reactions of the characters and had enough action and romance to keep me...more
Shannon is a demon hunter and has been working reluctantly with vampire Rafe as her partner for the last 2 years. She just has one last mission to get through before she can move on to her new assignment on the other side of the country and will never have to see him again. It hasn't been easy for Rafe to work alongside Shannon, especially since he started falling for her, so he is determined to use this last mission to convince her they belong together. Will he be able to manage it or will he h...more
I really enjoyed this novella. It moved quickly, but since the characters had known each other for a couple of years and were finally choosing to act on their feelings it made sense. I like the world that Felicity Heaton has created. It makes sense to me. Maybe it's from all those years of watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer but I can totally get behind a shadowy agency dedicated to keeping the clueless mortals safe from the nasty demons that are running around.

Shannon and Rafe were both well writ...more

AWESOME!!!! Five stars only because I can't give six.

Rafe and Shannon have been working closely together as demon hunters. Now Shannon is ready to move on, leave Rafe and strike out on her own. Rafe, however, is totally in love with her, and has only one last mission to make her face her true feelings.

Rafe is totally sweet and hot, protective towards Shannon, and their affection is the best part if this novella. Too often, 'chemistry' acts as a poor substitute for a plot where the characters fa...more

Enjoyable Read,

3 1/2 STARS

A very sweet story of desire and love between Rafe and Shannon. Shannon a demon hunter and Rafe a vampire working together and secretely being attracted to one another. Shannon keeps a front up to keep from crossing the line with Rafe because of her past but finally Rafe reaches out to her and the story heats up and Shannon gets what she wishes for after wishing upon the christmas star.
Julie Burns

Cute little love story.
Vampire and human both loving each other for years, neither wanting to make the first move.
Rafe was a vampire with morals. And Shannon was a weary and angry human. Over time she came to love her partner.
I liked it.
Loved the goo monster. Some funny one liners.
A free read with I really enjoyed. (But not enough for 4 stars)
Will go look for more of the authors work.
Didn't work for me. The story seemed like rough notes for a longer novel.
It wasn't bad and the beginning was promising but then it got really weird. On moment she wanted to kill her partner the next she dreamed about him. She had all those feelings boiling inside and the suddenly all these conflicting feelings were gone.
The best thing about this book is the cover. As a rule I'm not a lover of short stories but the book was free so I gave it a chance. To sum everything up in one word...lame. It gets better the closer you get to the end. If you enjoy reading about a love sick vampire this book is for you.
Sara Santana
Yeah. Yeah, I read this. No. It had potential, I think? It was just insanely short and not much plot or anything. But it is a book to add to the list.
This was a fast paced, action packed, steamy novella. I enjoyed it tremendously - I wish it had been longer.
Shannon is no ordinary girl: she’s a demon hunter, working with the agency to rid the world of infestations, and she wants nothing more than to finish her last mission and leave town forever. For the past two years she’s been forced to work with a vampire she cannot trust, and things are beginning to get too complicated. Gentle, affectionate and thoughtful, Rafe is nothing like the vampires she kills for a living, and Shannon’s changing feelings towards him are more dangerous than any demon.

Guilty pleasure… yep, I admit it. That was the sole reason why I finally caved and downloaded this book. Come on, with at title like Vampire for Christmas, what else would you read it for? Really? Well, leave it to Felicity Heaton to give you more than you bargained for. ;)

One thing that I’ve noticed since I started tearing through Felicity Heaton’s novellas and full novels is that she has a way of bringing out the vulnerability in her characters. The vampires, demons and other immortals have as...more

I love Felicity Heaton's books! This story is no exception!

Shannon is a human demon hunter, working for an agency that monitors demon's and their activities. She is a wonderful character. She is full of spunk and determination. However, the complication of her partner being a vampire has Shannon wanting to transfer out.

Rafe is a reformed vampire, working for the agency in penance for his activities in the past. I love his character! He is uber sexy and charming. Unfortunately for m...more
A short Christmas story for any reader who enjoys kick arse female characters and hot vampires to swoon over, passion, lust, and lots of moments where you will be grinning and fanning oneself.

This Review was first published on my blog Lecture toute une Aventure

Felicity Heaton offers us a good erotic paranormal holiday romance. I didn’t enjoy it as much as Heart of Darkness that I’ve read last month though but it’s still a really pleasant read.
The relation between Shannon and Rafe is interesting; I loved to see how patient he was as well as how disturbed by the idea of their separation he is. The fact that he is studying in hope to protect her better was really cute too. Now we get mo...more

My Initial Reaction...

I've had so many Felicity Heaton books on my TBR for such a long time, so when I saw this short holiday novella I decided it was time. I really really enjoyed it and will definitely be making my way to her other books as soon as possible.
The Characters...

For a novella, the characters in Vampire for Christmas, were remarkably well developed. Shannon and Rafe both work for the Agency hunting down demons and vampires and the like. Shannon had an encou...more

Vampire for Christmas by Felicity Heaton
Rafe is an older vampire. He is in a sad situation, he has fallen for his partner. Shannon is a human who he hunts demons with. She seems to really enjoy killing vampires. And she often lets her feeling towards them known to Rafe...reminding him what he is.

Shannon has requested to be moved and no longer partner with Rafe. Not because of her hate for vampires though, more because she fears what she feels towards one in particular. This story takes place on...more
Michelle ☕Ndayeni☕
A fairly typical sort of vampire-human love story where one or both of them are fighting their feelings for the other, with a dash of Ghostbusters thrown in to add a bit of action. Both characters are likeable enough, but I wasn't really feeling any connection between them until the very end. Nothing really pulled me into the story to get me all that interested in it except reading to get to the sex scene that I was sure would be happen eventually. When they finally give in and admit their feeli...more

Shannon has to overcome so much from losing her parents and brother to a crazed vampire. When the
