"Vampire's Ball" by Angela Knight. Single mom Kat Danilo learns two stunners. First she can become a majae magic practitioner and second her absentee father is a vampire. "A Little Night Magic" by Allyson James. Single mom Naomi is taken aback when her former Navajo shaman lover Jamison Kee wants back in her life and that of their daughter. "Sweet Enchantment" by Anya Bast, Bella Mac Lyr's offers to marry mage Ronan Quinn in order to save his life, but he says no. Instead he escapes taking Bella with him. "A Christmas Kiss" by Lora Leigh'. Someone wants Jessica Raines; only her life-mate Breed Hawke Esteban can keep her safe, but she rejects his protection and his need to name her as his out of fear for his life if the killer succeeds. These are four strong fantasies starring containing deep casts with the holiday bonus of having a Breed and Mageuniverse tale included. Harriet Klausner

I just loved reading this book. I have read the books from the different authors. Lora Leigh is my favorite.

The stories in Hot For The Holidays were all very erotic, and for the most part the stories read smoothly and the major characters were likable. My only disappointment was with Leigh's contribution as I thought the dialog a little skewered and the romantic elements lacked maturity. Of all the stories, I felt Angela Knight's Vampire's Ball was the very best. There was humor and true passion in this story, which made for a satisfying combination. Overall, I think this collection has a lot of spice to warm a winter night!

I have to admit that the first caught my attention but it was basically downhill from there. I am not Lora Leigh's market. Vampire's Ball with Angela Knight is a Mageverse story and while I have some issues with the world, the female character is an ass-kicker and unwilling to let anyone take over from her. She has issues that she can't reallly overcome and they're not glossed over.A Little Night Magic by Allyson James was an entertaining story of a woman trying to come to terms with the reasons her boyfriend left her, with or without coyote's help! I did like it.Anya Bast's Sweet Enchantment felt almost like it stepped out of Laurel K Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series, it's a Fae Story with two fae trying to work out what they mean to each other and to keep each other alive.Lastly A Christmas Kiss by Lora Leigh, I have issues with this series and the author isn't a good match to my preferences, societally or story-wise. The addiction to someone with the posessiveness is scary in my mind and not condusive to the building of healthy relationships.The stories are fairly explicit, but good tasters of the different writers.

Shapeshifters, vampires, and fae, oh my. And they're each and every one smoking hot! "Hot for the Holidays" is a four-story anthology of paranormal stories, each incorporating a nod to the upcoming holiday season. Since I'm a fan of all four authors, what's not to love? Angela Knight takes us on a short trip to her Mageverse with "Vampire's Ball" and the story of a vamp Knight and a potential Maja (witch). Is their overwhelming passion just a product of her change? When confronted with a demon from her past, they'll have to work together or die. Next up is Allyson James with "A Little Night Magic". She fell in love with him and then he left her. Now he's back, but his enemies aren't far behind. It's a good thing Naomi's pretty open-minded since her man is now a Mountain Lion!! "Sweet Enchantment" by Anya Bast looks to be a glimpse of an upcoming series (I hope!) about the Fae. It's a very different take on Romeo and Juliet with each from a different 'court' but meant to be together. Unfortunately, there's that wicked Queen to deal with! Finally, with a "A Christmas Kiss" Lora Leigh's Breed fans will rejoice. The scientist drugged into betraying her Breed friends gets her happy ending while evading a murderous traitor in the Breed compound. Four hot stories by four hot authors. Merry Christmas to me!

A very interesting way to experience new authors. I really enjoyed all of the stories presented in this holiday edition anthology. The first story is called Vampire Ball was truly a new and unique way of looking at magic. It's like there was parallel universe where magic is easier to perform there than it is here on Earth. I also loved the use of Arthurian Lore as a means to base magically ability. The second story is called A Little Night Magic was about a man coming to terms with be a Changer(Shifter). The man believes that the woman he loves wouldn't accept him if she knew. He left her without saying where he was going or why. Now he expects her to accept him in her life again after being gone for two years. Will she let her pride stand in the way of her love for this man? The third story is called Sweet Enchantment. It's a tale about love long denied out of fear and hope for both of their futures. Bella has loved Ronan for so long she aches with all of her love yet he still rejects her. Ronan has a terrible secret and fears it's release. Will they let their love fade away? Last story is called A Christmas Kiss. All Jessica wants is to be left alone and have true freedom but that will never happen because she's branded a traitor. She also is pining away for Hawke yet will not have him either. Hawke has been in love with Jessica from the first moment he met her. He knows thst she's his mate and nothing/no one will stand in his way of making her his mate. Hawke knows that Jessica is upset/angry with him for not being with her for the last year but he had good reason. Will Jessica see the truth? Your answers await you in Hot for the Holidays. I loved what each other did with their characters and world building skills. I think I'll be checking out all of these author's other works out. More books for growing reading list.
