Bridget Merrow has almost everything a werewolf could wish for. And it's not that her awesome family and popular business aren't enough - she just wants someone to share it all with this Christmas. Too bad the someone she wants doesn't want her. Or does he?

Kristen Painter during her copious amounts of free time wrote some novellas that are in line with the Nocturne Falls series. This story, The Werewolf’s Christmas is a novella about Bridget, the owner of Howler’s which is the local werewolf bar. She has everything she wants, except for a man to share her life with. Sam, the man she likes, acts cagey around her. Is the cageyness due to him wanting to be with her but being afraid, or is it because he doesn’t feel the same way.
Since this novella is so short, it took less than an hour to read, which is sad because it is really good. Kristen has not only done a Halloween novella but additional holidays. What I really like about this story is that it is a continuation of story lines. It seems that sometimes you read the full book and want to know more. Now you can with the holiday novellas. Her writing is so vivid you think you are there in Nocturne Falls. Obviously such a place doesn’t exist which sucks. I don’t just want to go there because I love Halloween. I want to go there and meet the characters. Even when gruff in nature, they seem to really care about each other. That is something that sadly is missing.
Pick it up, it will be worth it, and seriously it is less than 50 pages, so if you don’t like it, you wouldn’t have spent days reading it. Unless you want to, then go forth and spend days reading it. I won’t stop you. Considering I am reading 9 books now, if you are like me it may take you days to read it.
