The owner of said house, Dimitri, is a sexy vampire and when he offers her an eternity of happiness, will she say yes and allow Dimitri to turn her or will she flee?

A smart, sharp-witted female and a no-nonsense, sexy vampire make for a steamy and entertaining read.

Even vampires deserve a Christmas miracle!

I really enjoyed Dimitri and Dena’s sweet Christmas story. And now I want a stained glass snowflake ornament for my tree!! I also loved that Ms. Harris’ vampires are not some evil abomination, but rather another race with the ability to have babies. I’d definitely be interested in other stories set in this world.

This story was a spicy shorter read, a delight to indulge in on a cold winter's day. Dimitri is a vampire who has chosen a simple life, living in the woods, until his last day comes...if he doesn't meet his soulmate. The Christmas deadline looms. Along comes his soulmate, near death, in a winter storm of his doing. Two lonely souls find comfort in each other as the days lead up to Christmas. I liked Dimitri's softer side, his hobby of making stained glass snowflakes for the Christmas tree he put ...more

This is the first vampire book I have read in a long time and I've decided I need to read more of them! Who doesn't love a story about a sexy vampire? Dimitri and Dena's story is centered around Christmas and Dimitri yearning for his mate. It is a quick read that is a little unconventional but has the sweetness you expect from a holiday read. Great story! ...more

This is the 1st book I've read written by Kristal Harris; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

I REALLY liked this story!

The idea is very original. To me, it had sort of a Beauty and the Beast flare to it, but once I finished page 1, I had a hard time putting it down!

I think what I liked the most (aside from Dimitri's complete, unconditional and undying love for Dena) was how Dena reacted to meeting, well, a real-life vampire. She wasn't as freaked or put-off as I've read in other books, and I rather liked that she took it all in stride for the most part.

Actually, I also really liked Dimi

To be honest, after I finished writing this book, I didn't like almost deleted the manuscript. My editor helped me see the beauty of the story. Maybe I was too close to it? Anyways, thank you readers who loved Red Snowflakes and left such wonderful comments in their reviews.

One reviewer mentioned it reminded her of a Beauty & the Beast story. Funny how I never thought of it that way, but it is. The stained-glass, red snowflakes are something I love and wanted to incorporate into

Wow. Hot, emotional, reminiscent of “Beauty and the Beast” but with a hunky vampire. In this case Gaston is played by a serial killer and, though we aren’t there, he does get his in the end.

What I liked: The beautiful red snowflakes that Dmitri shapes from glass – it’s so touching that Dena wants to hang them all on their tree. The opening of the story is very strong—and very CSI. So be forewarned—it’s a murder scene and she’s photographing it. I loved the imagery the author gives us—it’s beaut

This was a quick read that I did not want to put down. A vampire that had given up and waited to die. A woman who kept emotions under control. They came together and love blossomed swiftly. Dena and Dimitri made a wonderful couple. Dimitri was so honest with her, and she was so accepting of him. The emotions pulled me in and kept me turning pages. I highly recommend this story.

I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

This short story is perfect for the holidays for those who like books with vampires. I was hoping that this was part of a series so I could find out more but sadly it appears to be an individual novella and that's why I gave it four stars. It is a really sweet story about a vampire finding love when he has very little time left to live. The way he shows his love for the woman that he has spent years looking for is so sweet!
I just couldn't give it five stars though as I feel like the story is cli

This was such an awesome story that I highly recommend. It's well written with wonderful characters and great word usage pulling me in making me feel I'm there watching the story unfold. Dimitri is a vampire who every Christmas waits for a miracle, to find he mate. He finds his Christmas miracle in Dena. I loved Dimitri and Dena their chemistry was off the charts and I loved watching them grow and become a couple. This book had all the action, chemistry and romance and was very well written.

a swoony vampire novella ! must read!

Perfect holiday paranormal romance! I love that even though it was “fated mates” it still was foreign for one of them as she was human. She felt the connection but still question everything. And Dimitri, oh my word i loved him so much! Knowing she was his but still giving her a choice...all the vibes man!!! Must read! its well pace and swoony!

Emotional and fascinating!
This book is steamy and amazing and will push your boundaries and leave you breathless!

I loved everything about it - the characters, the plot, the emotion, the writing, and the ability that the author had to tell me a story - all of it had me wanting this book to go on and on.

The chemistry between the H and h is great plus their attitudes and events going on make the story even richer.

This steamy tale featured a sweet, magical, vampire hottie and his kind-hearted, courageous soulmate. It was well written, but felt like there lacked a little closure in Dena's life and also like he ought to have introduced her to his only friend, Joe. But those are only minor details in an otherwise marvelously spicy story.

I received a free copy of this book, but that didn't affect my review.

A Christmas themed book with a fairy tale aspect which reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. I really enjoyed reading this book in places I was giggling like a love struck teenager. It’s not weird to want to be bitten by a vampire right? Highly recommended for some pre- Christmas vampire fun

Red Snowflakes is a wonderful holiday romance, the story of Dmitri, a vampire who, every Christmas, hopes that this will be the year he finds his mate. The characters of Dmitri and Dena have amazing chemistry together. The story is well written, heartwarming, and with a steamy romance.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Forensic photographer, Dena Williams, has spent her life trained to see what others cannot. Vampire, Dimitri Kovac, has waited every Christmas for a miracle that does not come until now. Absolutely loved Dena and Dimitri's story. Well written, and loose ends were tied up nicely. Blood mates for life.

Another fantastic book by Kristal Dawn Harris! I loved The Burn but I think this book may actually have become my new favorite! I had been looking for a book to start my holiday reading and I am so glad that I picked this one to be it. I loved the romance between Dena and Dimitri. It was a whole new level of thoughtfulness and longing. Kristal Dawn Harris is amazing in her ability to be able to draw out the emotional connections between her characters and us readers.

This is my first vampire story. I’ve read other stories by Ms. Harris so I gave this a try and I’m glad I did! It’s a fun, fast-paced sexy read. The author’s vivid descriptions of the snow storm; the way she brought the heroine to the vampire’s doorstep was well written. And if you like your sex scenes HOT, you’ll enjoy the ones in the book. Lust to love, to a surprise ending makes this an enjoyable Christmas read!
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Dimitri has just 5 days to convince Dena she is his fated mate, or he will die.

I really rather enyoyed this short tale of a lonley vampire waiting out his fate, I really did!

It's only short, 100 odd pages, but it was a surprising read and I cannot say why!

It's not overly sexy, and at one point I thought it might turn out clean, but I would have still enjoyed it.

Dimitri is vampire, and has some skills not *usually* asso

This book was so much better than I anticipated. It is the first time I have read anything by the author and I wasn’t sure what to expect really. But she really brought everything I tend to look forward to in a romance novel, a tortured soul left without hope, a heroine who can save him, and a nasty piece of work who almost takes it all away. I absolutely enjoyed the part the ornaments played in the story and the way our heroine opened her heart and mind to love. These two f

This is a new the author to me and I will definitely be reading more from her. Dimitri has given up on finding his blood mate with only five days left until his 200th birthday and Christmas when Dena stumbles upon his doorstep. It is her, she can save Dimitri he only has to convince her to take that leap of faith and bond with him. Will time run out before he can with her heart?
