For the first time ever, the leader of the Viking Vampire Angels, Vikar Sigurdsson, has been talked into celebrating a traditional Christmas! The tree has been decorated, the gifts have been wrapped, and the stockings have been hung. And that's mistletoe, not cobwebs, hanging from the ceiling of the creepy castle full of vangels ... really!
The icing on the vampire cookie comes when vangel Karl Mortensen rescues Faith Larson, a battered young waitress, from her abusive boyfriend and hides her in the castle amidst the Christmas chaos. But what Karl thought was a frail young teenager is actually a very tempting woman. And she thinks his fangs are sexy!
But a strange "Christmas visitor" at the castle and demon vampires up to their old tricks could threaten the budding romance between Karl and Faith. It's an impossible match—a human and a vangel—but Christmas is a time for magic.
Karl and Faith don't stand a chance...
Christmas in Transylvania by Sandra Hill is a holiday novella in the Deadly Angels series. I haven’t read any other books in this series. I felt the author did a nice job of introducing the premise of the series and of explaining the characters, settings and the idea behind the series. Karl is a viking vampire angel (vangel) who has been given a second chance to redeem himself for his misgivings. He frequents a diner in Transylvania, Pennsylvania, and has taken a liking to Faith, a waitress. When he learns that she is in an abusive relationship, he makes it his mission to save her.
Meanwhile, the other vangels are busy setting up the castle for Christmas at the request of Vikar’s wife Alex. I enjoyed reading about the castle coming to life for the holiday. This was a really interesting book and I loved the characters, the premise of the story and the romance. I would definitely read more from this series.
