Miranda works for the arrogant vampire, Matthias. She lives in a wing of his home so she can be at his beck and call whenever the mood strikes him. Matthias knows that Miranda is his mate but he has no desire to bind himself to a human, fall in love and watch her die, so he keeps his distance. When Miranda asks for a Christmas Tree for the house, he reluctantly agrees. Miranda has an accident before she can get the tree, though and he uses their bond to rescue her.
After Matthias is shot, Miranda must let Matthias feed to regain his strength and possibly save his life. This bonds them closer together. He gives up the fight and throws himself into winning her over. The first thing on his list? Her Christmas Tree.
Review: Miranda knows that she works for a vampire and she isn’t afraid of him. She just wishes she could go somewhere without him contacting her PDA all the time. Even when she goes out with her friends he won’t leave her alone. He let her move in with him so that he could have her 24/7. Christmas is her favorite holiday but she’s stuck with Mr. Scrooge. When he finally gives in to her and lets her get a Christmas Tree she can’t wait. She never makes it because she wrecks.
Matthias has lived for over four hundred years and knows that Miranda is the one for him. The only thing is, is that he won’t give to his instincts. He has been through many lives and lost many loved ones. That is why he won’t give into his feelings for Miranda. Seems the fates have other ideas and with everything that happens it is taken out of his hands.
This was a great story and it is easy to get into. I love males like Matthias, ones that are strong, takes charge and when he finally decides what he wants he goes after it. This was one hot story and I wished there were more of it. I love Christmas stories that are like this. You take a vampire and put them in another scene besides what vampires are known for. I never wanted this story to be over and the ending was wonderful. I have to say that I liked the cover.
