Blurb:

Samuel needs a holiday miracle. The Vampire Council is after him, he's falling in love with his best friend's mother-in-law, and there's artwork hanging on the wall that was stolen by the Nazis. Life is spiraling out of control for this Jewish vampire as he spends the Christmas holiday baking cookies and wrapping gifts for the needy.

Louise is busy with her charities and hosting her annual Christmas party. Putting a smile on her face proves difficult when her soon to be ex-husband arrives with a bimbo on his arm, her proposed divorce settlement is far from fair, and the sexy stranger she’s starting to fall for believes she’s a Nazi.

ARC Romance Vampire

I have to say that this was kind of cute. A little different take on the whole vampire thing and “they live among us” theme plays a huge role in this story. Vampires that are actually classy, rich, and a tad snobbish? Well they are in Winter Wishes, but never too pretentious. I loved the play on the whole Vampire Council and that vampires can age themselves at will, depending on the amount of blood they drink. Yep, no sucking blood, well maybe in Sammy’s case, he sucks it out of a bag.

I might have missed the gore and grit that goes hand and hand with vampires, but who says they can’t be human-ish? There are so many takes on vampires and I liked their cosmopolitan way in this story; they hold jobs and throw lavish house parties where humans and vampires mingle.

Now, as far as I understood, humans are not aware of their vampire counterparts. Especially at Louise’s household where her servants are serving her fellow vampiric guests blood in disguise in normal drinks. Wasn’t sure how the blood ended up in there. Or since it was mentioned that they hate human food, I wasn’t sure how any human wouldn’t notice any of them eating.

However, I liked the romance and there was whole Nazi theme that actually played an interesting role in the story.

A little note…

This is 4.5 in the Colony series, but can be read as a standalone.

Wow, interesting take on vampires. Almost sounds like kinder, gentler vampires. LOL I think I might actually miss the darkness of the typical/traditional vampires. So glad you enjoyed this one, though!
