Last week I was unable to participate because I went to visit some family members who were traveling through Barcelona. It was so nice to see them <3
As for today's snippet, I'm currently going through a crisis regarding the last story I shared with you guys and I'm pretty much despising it. Sigh.
So, today, I'm sharing a random snippet from The Beauty of Forever. I recently got a great review for it (You can read it here) and it's a story I love. <3 Christopher's life view particularly calls to me now.
Hope you enjoy it!

Except me. For a while, I was interesting, new, and then, the next beautiful thing came by.”
“I’m sorry,” she said earnestly, placing her palm over his.
Christopher shook his head.
“It stopped mattering a long time ago.”

The Beauty of Forever
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?
