Gavin’s always loved Christmas, but his boyfriend? Malcolm would rather be staked and beheaded, and since he’s a vampire, that’s saying something!

This is a great paranormal variation on the Christmas Grinch story. Can you imagine a big, badass vampire liking Christmas? Well, I’d never thought about it before, but when the question appeared, I must admit it made me laugh. This story examines what happens when a human’s enthusiasm and a vampire’s ‘grinchiness’ meet head-on.

Gavin has also never thought about it, just assumes everyone shares his enthusiasm and gets ready to share his first Christmas with his vampire boyfriend. Gavin’s disappo

This was a nice holiday read. Something not as heavy as I'm used to reading but still had a nice steamy scene. I'm definitely in the mood for Christmas now:) Another good one the check out is His For The Holidays. All nice stories but my favorite was "I heard him exclaim" by Z.A. Maxfield.

I liked first half a lot or first three chapters. But then last chapter was all sex and it was the longest scene. I stopped reading I got so bored. It took me forever to finish that scene and that is then the end of the book. Wish I would have stopped at the end of 3 because sex chapter ruined it for me

It was actually a really good story till the last roughly 10 pages which were nothing but one very long lasting sex scene. Too much of sex scene and not enough of the plot for me.

This is a cute story about a vampire who is kind of a scrooge and his human boyfriend who really likes Christmas. They get in a fight and Gavin (the human) gets really pissed off at the negativity of Malcolm (his vamp). I liked the cute interaction with the sister and the turnaround by the BIL reacting to a bigoted homophobic jerk at a Christmas Eve party. Then there was some nice make-up smexing with Gav and Mal.
For a story that takes place over 2 days, this sure did run the gammut of emotions. At times I wanted to smack both MCs because they were being so petty about something that was ultimately so insignificant. For a 106 year old vampire and a 20-something human they did at childish. But after an argument, which both had valid points on though their own execution of said points was seriously lacking, dealing with a openly bigoted female, a revelation from an unexpected source, and a minor car issue, ...more

~sigh. I really wanted Malcolm to bottom...

Oh, yeah. This book also features a usage of the word "deadpan." Yes, apparently, you can deadpan people. Not at people. Or simply deadpan, but deadpan people.

e.g. Malcomn Malcolm deadpanned him. (aaaand apparently I can't spell "Malcolm"...)

..."deadpan" doesn't mean "stare expressionlessly at," you know...

Short and sweet. Malcolm the vampire acts like a total tool for the first half, never bothering to consider how much Christmas might mean to "his human". They have a fight, and he is left behind from a Christmas party to think about the error of his ways. It ends up being cute, and loving without too much sugar.
Humans and vampires live on earth together know of them.

Gavin loves Christmas but Malcolm doesn't, can gavin change his mind.

The story was ok, but I didn't quite feel the attraction between the MCs, and it felt a bit repetitive.
I thought this was a fun paranormal Christmas story! I enjoyed the characters and thought it was very sweet.

Lacey-Anne Frye is a young, loner gal with too much time on her hands. Born and raised in Maryland, she became interested in writing when she was in the first grade, although her short plays and stories from back then are more embarrassing than her baby photos. She currently resides with her biggest fan, her mother, from whom Lacey-Anne inherited the storytelling gene.
