Stephanie Wills is a detective who is just coming off of a break-up. Her fiance, Daniel, learns that Stephanie comes from a line of vampire hunters and makes a hasty escape from her life. All Stephanie wants is a man that will stand by her side and love her for who she is and not base anything on the family she tries to distance herself from. What she gets is a man that goes against everything her family believes in...A Vampire.

Amid the chaos with her heart is the murder and display of a woman i

Stephanie Wills never expected her boyfriend to react so violently to the fact that she comes from a long line of vampire hunters. Deep inside, she was hoping he'd accept her for who she is, regardless of what her entire family does on the sidelines. Disappointment rises as Daniel breaks off their engagement so soon after he becomes privy to the secrets she's been hiding the entire time.

Mulling over her situation, she detests the fact that she'll be spending the holidays alone. Yet she tells he

The Vampire and the Hunter: the ultimate odd couple

Stephanie has no luck when it comes to men(her family being the main reason).Besides being a homicide detective she also comes from a long line of vampire hunters. She has a murder on her hands that's vampire related. Her family are gonna flip when they find out that her newest boyfriend is the leader of the vampire coven in the city. He's also the main suspect (unofficially of course).

Zane offers a fresh take on the vampire genre. She mixes a police procedural in with a complex multi-family backstory so that the vampires become more than just brutal bloodsuckers. In The Christmas Present, Zane's world has special segments of the population whose job is strictly vampire- extermiation related... and it sure causes trouble when one of that number falls for a vampire! I hope Zane has made (or plans to make) this book part of a series. I even want to know what happens to the side ...more

Stephanie's in law enforcement and doesn't believe all vampires should be killed. To her dismay, her family disagrees. When murder strikes her town and she's charged with finding the killer, she's mortified to discover it's a vampire. So is the vampire leader. Together to work to find the killer before he can strike again. And in the mean time fall for each other.

But this isn't a guy she can take home to meet the family, so what can they do?

Good story, good tension, great entertainment.

This short story was a fast-paced, intense read. The relationship between Stephanie and Nicholas was sensual and moved quickly. I almost wish I'd had more time with these characters. I got hooked on them.
