Review by: Elysa Hendricks on Jan. 03, 2012 :
In an attempt to save his soul from the damnation of becoming a true vampire, for a hundred years Michael has restrained from drinking human blood. He only has to make it through one more night and come Christmas morning he'll die with his soul intact. Carol is on her way to see her family for Christmas when she's stranded in a snow storm. Afraid that when faced with an agonizing death he'll succumb to the temptation to drink her blood, against his better judgement Michael allows her to take shelter in his home.

Through their sharing of Christmas memories the author uses the holiday season to show the reader how, Michael, a reluctant vampire and Carol fall in love with each other. Throw in Michael's evil vampire sire and you've got a great story that will keep you turning the page until the Happily Ever After.

Though Ms McCullough's story A VAMPIRE'S CHRISTMAS CAROL is set on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it's a vampire romance that can be read and enjoyed anytime of year.

Review by: Katie Boofer on Dec. 21, 2011 :
In all reality, this story hasn't got much in common with Dicken's classic Christmas story. Instead the title is a play on words, but you don't find that out until halfway through the story. I would like to see more of this authors thoughts and ideas on vampires. Her proposed hierarchy seems as though it may be very complex. Also her suggestion that vampires have an intolerance to human tears is intriguing.

Although I was able to predict how the story would end, it was still an enjoyable read, even if it lacked a bit of suspense.

I quite enjoyed this paranormal romance. I felt the story was interesting and the characters likable. I would have liked more aggression from the Vampire and more revulsion from the Human but overall it worked. When I got to the end I wanted more and for that I highly recommend. :)
