Reviews: A Nanny for Christmas by Christina George and A Vampire Christmas Carol by Cynthia Eden

Willa, nanny to the children of a Á list actor found herself the subject of gossip magazines when said actor tried to hit on her. As a result, she became persona non grata to every employer and the movie industry. Besides that, there were the indecent proposals from perverted men.
She came to LA to pursue her dream of becoming a famous movie star.  However, The Incident’; between her and the actor forced her to return home to Harper’s Corner. Returning home brought back bittersweet memories.  The memory that hurt the most was that of her ex Jack whom she had left to pursue her dreams four years ago.
So imagine how she felt when she came face to face with the man whose heart she broke.
The chemistry between them sizzled, but it took time for trust to rebuild. I loved that despite their history their romance moved at a realistic pace. They took some time to get back to what they once shared.
I enjoyed this short, sweet and steamy romance, which featured well-developed characters. It was an easy read. No push and pull and the story flowed smoothly. I also enjoyed the Christmas theme, which reminded me of a Hallmark movie minus the cheesiness.

If you are a fan of second chance romance and love the Christmas vibe, then A Nanny for Christmas would be the perfect read.

This holiday season has bite.
Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.
But fate has other plans for Ben.
Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.
’Tis the season…to be undead.
Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms… _________________

Ben is on a path of destruction because as far as he is concerned his life is not worth much. Ten years ago, on Christmas eve,  he lost all which was important to him, when a rogue vampire turned him.  Since then Christmas was a reminder of the pain and loss and so, he detests the holiday. He spends his time hunting and killing criminals. Then one fateful Christmas eve while on the verge of killing someone a demon from his past visited him with the offer of redemption. Now he relives his past, see his present and gain a peek at his future.

I enjoyed this short but intriguing paranormal story, which was a nice twist of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. The story demonstrated that love is all about making sacrifices.  Ben learnt this lesson well. There were twists I never expected, which made for some interesting moments.

Overall, this was a wonderful read and one I would recommend.

About Christina George

I’ve worked in publishing for twenty years and I sincerely love books and authors. I started this journey with my own books planning to write just one, and then well – all I can say is the stories kept coming. My original series The Publicist, follows Kate, Mac, Nick, Vivienne and a host of other awesome characters as they make their lives in New York, amidst the chaos that publishing often brings with it. I am now exploring a fictional small town called Harper’s Corner. This series is so fun, because there are so many characters in this town, from sexy firemen and hot Army guys, to an awesome group of women that I affectionally call “the coven.” These books will explore each of these characters, and their journey to finding the loves of their lives.

I love writing, and I love reading and if I’m not actively writing a book, I’m probably dreaming of what I’ll write next.
