Orphan Liam Ryan isn’t asking for much this Christmas--just his Uncle John. And he’s counting on Father Christmas to find a way to make that happen.

But when Father Christmas tosses Liam’s letter, claiming that the kid is asking the impossible, his daughter, Winter, takes over. Half-pixie, Winter, longs to do something important with her life, starting with getting a job at the Order of the Shadow Accords, the organization that polices the supernatural world. When she discovers Liam’s uncle works for the Order, it seems like fate.

Savaged by werewolves and bitten by a vampire, no one knows what to expect of JohnRyan, but it won’t be anything good. So there’s no way he’s getting involved with his nephew...or anyone else. Worse, he’s getting a babysitter over the holidays. But when he meets irrepressible Winter, all that matters is whether she likes her guys to be naughty or nice....

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


 

By SparklesThis was such a treat! I loved every second of Bittersweet Christmas; from its version of Father Christmas, quirky and mischievous Winter, our sexy and brooding were-pire (yes, a werepire: a hybrid between werewolf and vampire) Ryan, to the action, suspense and holiday spirit it includes. It has it all.

John Ryan was a human working for The Order, after being attacked by werewolves and subsequently turned into a vampire by his friend, he’s been secluded in the offices as no one knows exactly what to expect of him. The volatile nature of his new powers, along with a pack of werewolves seeking revenge, forced him to stay away from his nephew. Even if he’s the only family young Liam has left, he can’t risk putting him in danger. He was broody and sexy, a bit of a jerk at times but in the end, really sweet and protective of those he cares for.

Winter is not only half-pixie and half…. whatever Father Christmas is, she’s completely determined to get a job at The Order and be independent. When she realizes she can kill two birds with one stone (getting said job and getting Liam his Christmas wish of seeing his uncle) she cajoles, pleads and finally gets her way: she will stay and babysit Ryan through the holidays. She was sassy, impertinent and lots of fun, while also kick ass and caring.

As expected when a pixie wants to get her way, things get a little out of hand, plans go awry and Ryan and Winter soon realize their attraction and chemistry are not as fightable as they thought.

With action, sexy shenanigans, funny banter, and enough snark to fill up a stadium, Bittersweet Christmas is the perfect Holiday paranormal treat.

Rating: 4 “Werepire… I’ll get it to catch” Stars
