The hunt for the past will set their future…
Alasdair Morgan, vampire lord of the south Atlantic region of the United States, and his mate, Gideon, are on the search for an ancient journal. The secrets the book holds within its leather binding can be used to destroy their race’s queen, Lilith. When they finally find the journal, they discover it has been sold to an antique store. However, a female with her own agenda has her sights set on possessing the book.
Some gifts come in twos…
Being a half-breed living among humans, Rhianna Howell knows the importance of secrecy all too well. When she discovers one of the lost vampire artifacts, she doesn’t waste time in collecting it before it falls into the wrong hands. But keeping the journal safe from evil will put her in the seductive path of two vampires who claim to be her mates.
The days and nights heat up this Christmas as she discovers a fiery passion she can’t deny or run from.
As soon as I heard that Ms. Davis was going to be writing a story set around Christmas with paranormal creatures including vampires I knew I had to have this book in my hot little hands as soon as was humanly possible. The additional bonus is that this is a menage story which have steadily moved up my favorite genre list. And as is typical Ms. Davis takes the story and the reader on an epic tale of love, intrigue and villainous characters.
Our heroes have been hunting for a lost artifact and have stumbled upon its acquisition at an antique story. But these two men’s quest has included the addition of a female mate to solidify and strengthen their bond. Fortunately both quests may very well be accomplished with one trip to New York City. These two men are so different in character but after reading this book an additional time this weekend you really see the complexity of not just their individuality but what makes their relationship so unique. Both men are strong and yet have true ‘human’ failings that really speaks to the soul of their combined complexity as a pair.
And the spunkiness and grit of the heroine is what truly encapsulates this story. She is a woman that refuses to be placed to the side and has the ability to ‘play ball’ with two vampires that might otherwise be able to overpower or intimidate her. She isn’t afraid to tell both of these men exactly what she wants and that they are wrong.
The addition of magic, demons and a few other paranormal creatures to this world make it a true delight to read. There are many ways this world can be shaped and I will look forward in the months/years to come to see how it is fleshed out.
Looking for passion between the three characters? Check. Looking for a romance that will make you wish you could live in this world full time? Check. Want a story set at Christmas time with a little more bang for your buck? Double Check.
Final Thoughts: This is a wonderful start to a new series by Ms. Davis that I will pick up as soon as they are released and I strongly encourage you to do the same.
Will you continue with the series: Yes
Will you read something by this author again: Of course!
As an added bonus I’m holding a giveaway for another of Lia Davis’ book, A Tiger’s Claim that she has graciously signed. This giveaway is for US/Canadian residents only but if you are looking to try out another of Ms. Davis books this is a great one to start with because it includes Winter’s Eve (Ashwood Falls series #0.5) & A Tiger’s Claim (Ashwood Falls series #1).
Fated Desire Publishing provided me with a copy of It’s A Vampire Christmas but nothing else was exchanged for my honest review.
