Overview

Sin and Salvation by Laura Baumbach

Ian Flynn, a vampire finds his perfect love in 1823 Victorian England in the form of Trevor Sheffield, a young stage actor. He keeps his true nature a secret from his lover until one Christmas Eve when Trevor is brought to the edge of death by a street gang mugging. Rather than lose the man who helped him discover he still had a soul (and a heart to break), Ian turns Trevor. Afterwards, he spends every Christmas Eve alone, wondering if he committed a selfish act of greed or a selfless act of love eternal. But Trevor won't leave Ian alone this Christmas.

A Vampire for Christmas by Sedonia Guillone

Christian St. Cyr, a vampire trapped in the nether world between soulless existence and redemption, has sworn not to kill from anger. He feeds only from mercy, which he does when he finds the beautiful man shot and bleeding to death near his home. However, the stranger revives and St. Cyr cannot resist making love to him. Little does he know that the lover who just claimed his heart for eternity is an immortal empath sworn to kill him.

The Master's Gift by Kit Tunstall

Chris Hanna didn't expect to provide blood and sex for vampire Hugh Klein when he became his assistant. He also didn't plan to fall in love with the other man. And he most definitely didn't think he would end up torn between his new lover and the woman who had captured his heart. He wants both of them, and the magic of Christmas just might make it possible.

Three great gay romance authors combine to bring stories of vampires, love and Christmas. The first story, 'Sin & Salvation' by Laura features her trademark smokin' hot sex, a dominant male with a younger more vulnerable parnter, and also a lot of angst. Ian turned Trevor in order to save his life after an attack, but has felt guilty for this 'selfish' act ever since. This Christmas he'll get the forgiveness he wants, but that he never really needed. The second story, 'A Vampire for Christmas' is my favorite of the three novellas, and the strongest. Sedonia gives her world more depth, with vampires of different types, telepathy, Immortals, and a slick plot of revenge, kidnapping and, of course, true love. Jesse is an Immortal sent unwillingly to kill Christian St Cyr in order to save his sister. But the plan goes awry and he finds himself at the mercy of St Cyr, and his own feelings. The sex here is great, and the romance simply wonderful. The final story, 'The Master's Gift' was enjoyable, but not as good as the other two. Chris has been hired as Hugh Grant's new assistant. He has everything he could want, a hot girlfriend, a good, well-paying and a place to live. All that changes when he learns Hugh's true nature and gives into his sudden desire for him. But what about his girlfriend? It's Christmas so he'll be getting more than one gift. I would have preferred this to be strictly M/M, but the story was nicely written and the sex just steamy enough. Overall, a great anthology. I enjoyed it enough to buy the paperback even though I already had the e-book. Highly recommended!
