Happy Sunday, everyone!
Sorry to have disappeared just like that, but November has been insane. I didn’t finish Nanowrimo (barely made it to 8000 words) and have had that perpetual feeling of running around from one place to another without really accomplishing anything. Let’s hope December is better. :)
Today I’m sharing a snippet from my upcoming release, The Beauty of Forever (A Christmas Realm Tale). I’m absolutely in love with the cover and the hero of this story. You might remember him and the heroine from previous snippets back when the story was a WIP.
In this snippet, they’re in an elevator heading to Christopher’s office. He’s just overheard a receptionist tell Samantha that he won’t bite without permission.

“She isn’t right, you know.”
“What?” She looked up at him with eyes wide, like a deer caught in headlights.
“I always bite without permission.”
He swept his gaze across her figure, she flushed and clutched her purse to her chest like a shield.
“There’s nothing as exhilarating as the pleasure of hunting down prey.” The elevator jolted to a stop and the doors slowly slid open. “But don’t worry, doll, I promised Santa I’d keep my fangs to myself.” He smiled broadly. “After you.”

COMING DECEMBER 5TH 2017
Once dead, always dead.
Christopher Beaufort works in what could easily be the most cheerful place on earth, Santa’s Christmas Realm, but as a vampire, he is nothing more than a shadow among the living.
Worn out by the demands of his job as Chief Toy Officer, Santa assigns a human woman to help him, Samantha Kraus. Tantalized by the fiery red-head, Christopher makes it his business to seduce her, but as he does, something within him begins to stir.
Life is a gift in which every moment counts.
When Samantha Kraus accepted the job of assistant manager at Santa’s, she expected elves, fairies and maybe some shifters, but definitely not vampires, and least of all did she imagine her boss would be one of them or that she’d be attracted to him.
Though she tries to remain professional, Samantha finds herself falling for Christopher. But, can a vampire’s heart ever beat again?
