Creatures of the Night and Santa’s Christmas duties don’t mix. Every myth and bedtime story tells you so.
But on Christmas Eve, when the Elves walked off the job over pension rights, it was time for me—Irwin, the only vampire on Santa’s payroll, despite recent diversity initiatives—and my trusty team to help out. Just deliver a few parcels, Santa asked me. Just help out on your local patch. Just for one night.
Armed with my reluctance to face all that human sentimentality, and accompanied by a wise-cracking werewolf and an unruly fairy with a taste for vodka, I did my best. Honest.
But we were heading for disaster until I came face-to-face with cute babysitter Benny. It’s Santa’s Number One Rule—no interaction with the clients. But Benny somehow managed to upset my appetite, inflame my libido, and restore my faith in the Christmas spirit, with one cheeky smile and a tasty body piercing.
It’s Christmas, and the show must go on!
In Bite Night which is a story in Dreamspinner Press’s 2016 Advent Calendar Bah Humbug we get a taste of a paranormal Christmas time tale! We have a Werewolf, a vampire, a Sprite, and then we have Benny lol.
This was a short, sweet, hilarious story that I absolutely loved. Clare London is such an amazing writer I’d read a sentence she wrote on a used napkin and call it amazing.
Even though Bite Night isn’t at all long, I literally read it in thirty minutes, it's truly terrific storytelling. It’s so wonderful and gives you that magic that Christmas is all about.I could easily see this story becoming a full length novel or even a series of adventures with this crazy crowd.

I have so many books in my TBR that it's difficult to narrow it down. I typically read by challenge requirements too so I'll be finishing up my 2016 challenges. I do have quite a few holiday stories I hope to be reading though!ReplyDelete
