    Nice twist on an old tale...

    What do you get when a demon, an angel, and a panther shifter gang up magically against a vampire? You get quite a dark edgy paranormal twist of the classic Christmas story which this reader found a lot more enjoyable than the original version, full of suspense and marked by the deep love of two souls.  This work is novella length, short and sweet, sexy at times, with heartbreaking emotions.

    Ben Prescott lost everything the night he was going to ask the woman he loved to marry him for on that Christmas night he was turned into a vampire and he watched the woman he loved die in his arms. Since then, for the past ten years, he has skirted the path of darkness, falling deeper and deeper into its clutches but there were things he was not aware of about the woman he loved and the time has come for his chance at redemption.

    Simone Laurent broke the rules, a guardian angel who fell in love with her charge. She has put into play a plan to save Ben's soul and if it works it will not only be his soul that is saved. She will sacrifice everything to give him the chance for she truly loves him and believes in him.

    Cynthia Eden is my author-of-the-year for 2013 (even if she’s been writing for much longer). I go on asking for her publications when they are available (while crossing my fingers that I’ll like the novel). A Vampire’s Christmas Carol didn’t deceive my expectations.

    The title is a stand-alone (but I found potential in two secondary male characters) and it’s a Christmas romance, a theme I like very much. The vampire hero lost his true love one year before and to kill time, because he is depressed, he decided to become a kind of vigilante of the shadows while feeding, in a kind of killing two birds with one stone act.

    It’s really difficult to make a review for this novel because the author keeps several suspenses on tenterhooks and I don’t want to spoil any of them. And giving you only a little detail would reveal too much...

    So I’ll just tell you that I loved this sweet, romantic, moving story full of hope. In spite of the feeling the reader can have, there is only one theme in this novel and it has nothing to do with hunting down baddies but everything to do with the love we feel for our true love and how we try to live, or rather survive, after his/her disappearance. As a matter of fact, all the past, present, and future actions of our heroes turn around their deep feelings for each other. The reader closes the book without a single doubt about their love. What more could we ask for?

    To conclude, an opus not to miss and where the reader will be surprised.

    Yes I am aware that it is not Christmas, but I have never been bothered with reading holiday themed books any time of year. I really love Cynthia Eden so I was excited to read this one. For a shorter story she really packed in the emotion. My heart was breaking for Ben and I found myself almost crying a few times. Adding a paranormal twist to a classic Christmas tale is just the kind of thing to spruce up this old tale. While this book didn't grab me and hold me hostage, I did enjoy the story. I'd really like to read more about the other characters as well. Maybe Ms. Eden will give us more in another book.
