It has been seven years since Analette Dyson stopped practicing magic and headed to New York, where she created a new life, complete with a fabulous job, an apartment in Central Park West, and a sexy werewolf fiancé. She never planned on returning to her small home town in Maine, but when she learns her grandmother is ill, she decides to pop over for a visit and what better time than Christmas? Excited for her fiancé to meet her family, they head up a day early.
Worst idea ever!
After doing some last minute Christmas shopping, Analette returns to their hotel to find her fiancé in bed with another woman. Cursing the universe for her never ending bad luck with men and dreading telling her family about her cheating fiancé, she heads to the bar to self medicate.
Not one to celebrate the holidays, vampire and assassin, Cole McRae, has followed a lead to a rustic town in witch territory. But after a few days of research and waiting for his target to show, he begins to suspect he has wasted his time. That is, until he meets a curvaceous blonde with bewitching green eyes at the local bar. One night with the enchanting Analette could make this useless trip well worth his time.
Their passion is undeniable and unbeknownst to them, their fates are intertwined. Magic and romance will strike on Christmas, changing their lives forever.
A Bewitching Christmas is a really good Christmas themed Urban Fantasy read. It is a quick and fun read with plenty of twists, turns, and action. I was worried there would be too much lovey dovey stuff in it for me, but there was just the right about to not turn me off.
I really feel bad for the main character, Analette Dyson. She’s an non-practicing witch who has been away from her family for a while trying to make a life for herself in NYC. Her fiancée is a werewolf and she finds out her Grandmother is ill, so she decides to go home for Christmas and introduce her family to her fiancée. Things couldn’t have gone much worse. Luckily, she meets Cole, and he’s one bad assassin. But in a good way. The way they interact is unexpectedly sweet.
If you are in the mood for something holiday related with romance and action, this is the book for you. It is an enjoyable read from beginning to end with enough action to keep things moving, but enough romance to keep it from being too much.
