A Vampire Paranormal Romance


Dani Malloye hates the holidays, and with good reason. Though her best friend tries to force the Christmas spirit on her with giant Santas and elves that light up, she'd rather spend her time doing what she does best--enforcing paranormal law on the streets of Chicago. Nothing like a little evil bloodshed to lighten the mood. Besides, work means

 ⚔ Sh3lly - Grumpy Name-Changing Wanderer ⚔

3.5 stars, rounding up for Christmas Vampire Lurv. I read this as part of Alphas for the Holidays.

This is a novelette (less than 80 pages) and set in a Christmas backdrop. Dani is a slayer who works for a bureau policing supernaturals. She has had the hots for her boss forever, a natural-born vampire named Cornell.

In this world, apparently vampires have a demonic side. (I wasn't quite sure if they literally were demon-possessed or if it was just a "nature" type thing. Anyway, Cornell has also

Dani is a slayer so she shouldn’t be attracted to her boss a vampire. However she can’t deny the attraction she’s had for him for years even though he likes to yell at her. She doesn’t have the holiday spirt after what happened years earlier so when her bestie shows up at her house with a truck load of decorations in attempt to bring the cheer back to Dani. Who doesn’t love multiple Santa Clauses with twelve reindeer harps and that’s just to start. Add in a few obscene snowmen and snow angels sh ...more

This was a quick holiday paranormal romance. It was fun and hot.

The story is about two co-workers on a paranormal police type force who keep the mean nasties from hurting the humans. They have been attracted for some time, but never done anything about it. Until now. Cornell is an old-natural born vampire who recognizes his mate in the forbidden slayer that he brought in, had trained, and now has her on one of his teams. He is just giving her time to grow up and heal from a personal family trage

Short paranormal romance about a Vampire & a Vampire Slayer. Not bad, but a bit cheesy for me in places :)

Great holiday romance with a bite

Love the fact that the big bad vampire was nervous about telling hi slayer that she was his mate. Check out this short paranormal tale.

I discovered Mandy M. Roth through the Happily Everlasting series where different authors write the various books. I was so impressed with "Once Hunted, Twice Shy" that I think I had too high hopes for this novella. "Hunted Holiday" is less of a short story than a lead up to a sex scene. It feels incomplete and underdeveloped. While it is a nice intro to the characters it doesn't really give a sense of whether the subsequent stories will be well plotted.

Terrific!!! I thoroughly enjoyed this very uplifting sexy *HOT* magically romantic holiday/Christmas (piece of) tale. I have yet to have read a book from Mandy that I haven’t loved, and this one is no different! First off, the hilarity of a vampire finally finding his mate after centuries of looking who just happens to be…well, I don’t want to ruin the magic of this book, so you will have to read it and find out for yourself!

I'm totally down with most of this book, but when the main dude gets his name shortened to Corny (by his best friend who has perfected the art of annoying him in ways no other can) I did a double take. Because hunks of burning love and "Corny" are not two things that go together in my head.

That said, I liked the world here. It has a boatload of supernaturals, a world that's a little dark and dangerous, and a bet friend who is determined to spread some holiday cheer. BFF, don't let this give you

Short and sweet, but totally fun holiday romance story.

Hunted Holiday was typical Mandy Roth, considering the comedy and snark, but it was also a sweet little romantic tale too. The side characters offer a touch of hilarity and chaos to the mix which makes this book extra fun. Hello Finn, you snarky pain in the butt, I like you a lot. and Mimi, you are a riot of a best friend.

Ah how good is this story? Let me tell you. It is a short story about Dani Malloye who cant stand the holidays- she does have good reason- trust me (don’t want to spoil the reason why). She has a crush on her boss, Cornell, who she thinks doesn’t realize she is alive and oh another thing—she is a slayer and her boss is an undead vampire. If things couldn’t get any worse…

I loved this story. I loved Dani. She was snarky and funny. I adored how she was with her friend. She didn't care for the holidays but that didn't stop her from allowing her friend to run wild with holiday cheer and decorations. Ms. Roth gave us a peek into her brain that I found hilarious, but she also showed a vulnerable side to Dani. Since it is such a quick read, Ms. Roth wasn't able to give us much back story but

Dani and Cornell are a great couple, she's a slayer and he's a vampire, oh and he's her boss. No problem there, right? She thinks he mean and doesn't like her, but that is the furthest from the truth, for he knows she is his mate, but thinks she doesn't like him. I found their efforts to resist the temptation of each other to be cute. This is a great holiday read from Mandy!

The reader enters the story amidst the chaos of electrical cords, lawn decorations and a Fae friend with an overzealous penchant for all things Christmas. The heroine's penchant however is for her broody next door neighbor who also happens to be her boss, never mind that he is a vampire and she's a slayer. Little does she know, and will soon learn, her feelings are requited and then some.

Mandy M. Roth has done it again. She has written a story that as always makes me want more, but is as always the perfect amount of information on the characters, story line, sexy sizzle, and giggle.

This story is about Dani a slayer and Cornell a vampire, who is also her boss. Slayer, vampire, boss...so many rules to be broken there. With anatomically correct snowmen, hell hounds, a prejudice head of the home owners association, and a Scottish vampire who will be lucky if he doesn't get his balls

Vampire meets slayer and falls in love. But slayer doesn't know, thinks vampire (her boss) is a stick in the mud lol
She is attractived to him, but come on her boss, it's a no no. She has problems with the holidays, I'm guessing family got killed, you really don't know.

A short holiday gem.

I find it necessary to shut myself behind closed doors when reading one of Mandy Roth's short stories. She makes me laugh out loud. Hunted Holiday is no exception.

Dani is a Slayer, in lust with her boss, who is a Vampire. He's straight laced, she's irreverent. The two can never make it as a couple—then why are they fated mates?

Dani's best friend tries to force holiday cheer with uber decorating, she knows the holiday holds terrible memories for Dani. Their banter is great.

So good! I really enjoyed this book! Cornell is an alpha Vampire, that we would all like to meet, tall, dark and super sexy. Dani is a strong female, and a slayer to boot, which means that she can kick ass with the best of them. Their relationship is quick, as this is a novella, but it's written well, and the characters are engaging enough, that I will definitely read more, in the series. It will be a series, correct?!!!!

Hunted Holiday is fast paced introduction to who Dani is and her life without dragging the story out. Dani’s boss Cornell is a vampire and she does everything in her power to annoy and irk him. Cornell keeps his eye on Dani knowing that she is his, even if she doesn’t know it. I love how Dani is sassy and sarcastic all the way to the end. I’m ready for more of Dani and Cornell ...more

This opened right after an ambush by some supernaturals that injured Dani. They also got away. Because of that, I felt the start was a bit abrupt. The rest was rushed, but considering the length, not surprising. Since Dani was a slayer, some slaying (and action) would have been welcome.
