Christmas flame is the story of a pretty little wolf alter named Verena and a vampire border patrol officer named Drake. Verena's life since her alter transformation was a series of unfair and painful experiences. She's been justifiably unhappy with her life in five bridges as a wolf shifter and had given up on love. Until Drake came around and showed his interest in dating her. Despite their differences of alter species and her dislike of her inner wolf Verena decides to give it a shot. They share a mutual attraction to one another and they both work in their own way to try to better Five Bridges. With the start of their relationship comes a sharing of powers and a drive to set wrongs right. They are an incredible couple and you can't help but love them. I do wish the story had been longer, It just feels rushed and some elements strike me as hard to grasp. The relationship was just so short and everything happened so fast. But I enjoyed every second of it regardless. I'm looking forward to the next flame book and I'm excited to see these amazing couples start to change Five Bridges for the better.

Kyle Drake is a vampire officer. He's a proud and strong hero. He's dedicated to stopping the evil that thrives in Five Bridges. He is attracted to the shy-wolf shifter, Verena. He finds her beauty and spirit alluring. Now that the holidays are here. He plans to seduce her and make her his. Can they form a permanent bond? Caris Roane has written a sexy romance filled with strong and determined characters. These two have so much in common. I enjoyed the lively banter and the passionate interaction. Christmas Flame makes a perfect addition to the Flame series. I'm definitely hooked. Caris Roane leaves me wanting more. I can't wait for her next release.

How can you go wrong with a wolf and a vamp? Answer you can't. You will at one time feel bad for our hero (vamp) as he has his house all set up perfectly for his lady love and things keep cropping up. But when we get our couple together, well, the fur does fly, in a good way. It's a howling hot time. Sorry, had to do it. But honestly I enjoy the Flame Series, oh well, I admit it, I like all of her books. For those of you that really aren't in the mood for the sex scenes you can skim them and not lose anything of the story. Hey sometimes you want it hot, sometimes not. The characters interact well together and the story flows nicely. This is a short book, get your feet wet in the series. You don't have to read the other books in the series first, this book can stand alone, a couple of the prior couples are mentioned in passing, but if you end up enjoying this one, the rest are along the same lines so you can go back and pick them up.

Once again Ms. Roane takes you to the "alter" world of Five Bridges where vampires,shifters and fae are just part of a unique but frightening community. Kyle, a vampire border officer has finally persuaded Verena, a shifter, to go out with him but normalcy is not in the cards for these two and they find themselves fighting for their and their friends lives while rescuing a young woman from sexual slavery in the Five Bridges! Ms. Roane writes each of her characters with such depth and emotion that you are invested with these people, their lives and loves! But as we come to expect from such wonderful men and women they risk all for love and their commitment to making a better world. I can never get enough of these books!!

"Copy gifted for an honest review". The Flame series takes place in Five Bridges which is a closed off province in the middle of human Phoenix. Roene has created characters who have become the victims of the alter serum. The Christmas Flame centers around Boarder Patrol vampire Kyle Drake and his love interest wolf Verena Sewart. The action starts with this couple already having a strong pull toward each other. Like with previous couples in this series their connection causes their powers to be shared and amplified. Both Kyle and Verena embark on a mission to stop Mellet, the shifter who killed Verena's husband. Mellet kidnaps a teen and with their increased powers Kyle and Verena aim to stop him.

Gifted copy for honest review. I really enjoyed reading Christmas Flame. It's the story about vampire Kyle and wolf shifter Verena. The story and character were great. Kyle and Verena have both lost loved ones in the past and they are trying to overcome these tragedies. This is a wonderful Christmas story.

"Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review" Caris Roane has done it again. Christmas Flame, a holiday novella of the Flame Series, is another hot, tantalizing must-read. The chemistry between vampire Kyle and shifter Verena is sizzling, and their love story is one of an all-consuming, burning desire. It's the best present ever - unwrap it now!

A cute, quick story with a warm holiday inspired ending. The two main characters were developed and the plot moved quickly. The 60 page story had the obvious rushed feeling of the relationship, but the references to the fact that they have known each other for some time and the story starts up with their first official date, made the rushed sense acceptable. I loved Drake's internal dialogue about lighting the Christmas tree and candles when things seem to be going his way, then when things seemed to go down hill on the date he mentally turned off the tree, blew out the candles, and trashed the poinsettia, only to have his hope rekindled. He then mentally resets the scene at his home, which awaited after the date. It was funny and entertaining. Overall, the story was good. Copy gifted in exchange for an honest opinion.

Christmas Break in Five Bridges A lovely holiday vignette in the Five Bridges world without the intensity and drama that usually comes in the push-pull against the relationships in the other books. A nice break from that mentality and a look at having a holiday in a new world. Copy received for honest review.

We return to the Five Kingdoms for a quick, seasonal story involving Kyle Drake (vampire) and Verena (wolf shifter). Drake has been trying to spend some time with Verena for a while now, and his plans finally come to fruition. However, life has a way of getting in between them, so Drake is very surprised when things move on with Verena in a way that he hoped for, but never expected. These two together are dynamite. They make a decision and stand by it, understanding that the world is full of shades of grey, rather than simply being black and white. I loved the mention of the other couples that I have got to know, as they made a brief appearance. Well-written and smoothly paced, this is a fast read that will bring you a seasonal smile. Definitely recommended. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

this is the new instalment of the flame series. This was as good as any of caris roane's books and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a lovely short story especially nice to read this time of year there is some descriptions in the book and you feel you are stood in the room viewing the xmas tree etc., Hot romance as we have come to expect but a good story of a miss matched pair making it work and after the sadness in there life you feel they really deserve this happiness. I would definitely recommend this book. "Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review."

This is the fourth book in the series, and set around Christmas time. Don't expect too much in the way of cozy Christmas scenes, but then again this is Five Bridges so cozy doesn't exactly fit. A shorter novella, it still fits the series well. Some parts felt a little disjointed or rushed, and I think it would do the book justice if it was revised and re-released, perhaps for next Christmas. If you've enjoyed the series up to this point, you will enjoy this one too. Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.
