Today I’m hosting a stop on Cynthia Eden’s A Vampire’s Christmas Carol Blog Tour. The holidays are just around the corner, what better way to get into the spirit than with a sexy vampire holiday story, right?! There’s a fun guest post, teaser excerpt and giveaway to enter so stick around and say hi to Ms. Eden!
“5 Things I Could Give My Characters for Christmas” by Cynthia Eden
Holiday shopping. It can be challenging–finding the perfect gift can often mean spending hours fighting your way through the crowds at the mall.
But what happens if you are buying a present for an…unusual individual? What if you’re shopping for a vampire, a ghost, or even a demon? All of these paranormal characters appear in my newest release, A VAMPIRE’S CHRISTMAS CAROL, and if I had to shop for them in the real world, things would sure be challenging…
For a vamp, I could always try giving some bagged blood (not my own!). Anything made of wood would totally be out. My vamp hero is a sexy, brooding guy…and, honestly, the only thing he really wants for the holidays–well, that would be the heroine. It’s a gift that money just can’t buy!
My book features a demon, too. Ah, demons…are diamonds a demon’s best friend? If so, that would be a pretty awesome gift.
A shifter appears in the tale, too. For him, I think a wilder gift would be in order. Something that would appeal to his animal side. So, yes, gift cards would be out…and a getaway to some awesome cabin in the wilderness would be in.
But what about you? Do you have any gift suggestions for paranormals? I’d love to hear them!
Happy Holidays! (And thanks to Romancing the Dark Side for having me over today!)
A Vampire’s Christmas Carol (Novella) by Cynthia Eden
This holiday season has bite.
Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.
But fate has other plans for Ben.
Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.
‘Tis the season…to be undead.
Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms…
This book features one very tortured vampire, a sexy ghost from his past, and hot scenes designed to melt the winter snow. Plenty of action, adult situations, and steamy times are ahead. Happy holidays!Available for purchase at
Lust clawed through him. The need, the red-hot desire, seemed to burn Ben from the inside.
He grabbed Simone, yanked her flush against him. His mouth locked on hers. He’d always
tried to be so careful with her in the past. Played the gentleman because she mattered.
He wasn’t a gentleman any longer. Ben wasn’t even sure what he was. He just knew he needed Simone naked, and he had to be in her.
He carried her back to his bedroom. He ignored the glittering New York skyline. She was the only thing he could see. Desire pounded through him. His cock was so swollen that he hurt and—
His teeth were extending.
Stretching in his mouth.
Ben dropped Simone on the bed and stepped back, horrified.
Simone sat up on the bed and pushed back the blonde hair that had tumbled forward. “What’s wrong?”
She was so gorgeous and sexy staring up at him.
Looking at him with those wide, dark eyes.
I’m going to hurt her.
He grabbed for the control that he’d always held so easily in the past. Only that control was broken. Shattered.
“You need to leave.”

Congrats Cynthia on your latest release. I really like the cover. I definitely can’t wait to read it. It’s already on my TRL.
I like the 5 things for Christmas. Sounds like a great book.
I haven’t read it, but I’d like to. It sounds like an interesting, contemporary and sexy twist of A Christmas Carol.
I loved this novella. Cynthia never lets me down. This is a great take on Dickens.
