For the first time ever, the leader of the Viking Vampire Angels, Vikar Sigurdsson, has been talked into celebrating a traditional Christmas! The tree has been decorated, the gifts have been wrapped, and the stockings have been hung. And that's mistletoe, not cobwebs, hanging from the ceiling of the creepy castle full of vangels … really!
The icing on the vampire cookie comes when vangel Karl Mortensen rescues Faith Larson, a battered young waitress, from her abusive boyfriend and hides her in the castle amidst the Christmas chaos. But what Karl thought was a frail young teenager is actually a very tempting woman. And she thinks his fangs are sexy!
But a strange "Christmas visitor" at the castle and demon vampires up to their old tricks could threaten the budding romance between Karl and Faith. It's an impossible match—a human and a vangel—but Christmas is a time for magic.
Karl and Faith don't stand a chance …

Christmas in Transylvania is a novella and book #4.5 in the Deadly Angel series.  In this installment the focus is not on any of the Sigurdsson brothers, but on one of their friends and fellow vangel Karl Mortensen. Karl was a fairly new vangel having only been turned forty years ago. The Sigurdsson household is currently in the throes of
Christmas celebration; however Karl is not keen on the idea as it brought back painful memories from his past prior to him becoming a vangel.  To escape the drama surrounding the Christmas celebration, he went to a nearby café to get some coffee and chill out. While there he received some upsetting news about one the waitresses, Faith Larson.
Little did he know that his decision to help Faith would change his life in an unexpected way.
The story was entertaining and engaging. It was fun experiencing the holiday spirit through the eyes of the characters. I enjoyed reading about them all but my favourite were Vikar’s adopted twins Gunnar and Gunnora. They were both so adorable.
The plot was well developed and detailed, however, there were some issues that were left unresolved.  No
insight was provided as to what Karl’s sin was and what led to his becoming a vangel. In addition Faith’s abusive boyfriend disappears and nothing more is heard about him.
If you love holiday themed stories that are short, sweet and romantic, and you are a PNR fan then I recommend you get a copy of Christmas in Translyvania.
