Description from the publisher:
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…

Warning: 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!

A VAMPIRE’S CHRISTMAS CAROL is a stand-alone book – not part of a series.

It is exactly what you expect it to be – grumpy, angsty, hell-bound vampire receives three visitors in an effort to guide him to mend his ways.  It’s what you expect, and yet nothing you will be able to predict.  The three visitors are a demon, the woman he loved when he was human, and a shifter.  How their past lives are intertwined is beautifully woven. 

I loved the surprises, twists, and kismet of their stories – all of their stories.  For such a short book, we are given remarkably complete glimpses into the lives of an entire cast of characters.

This is the first book I have read from Cynthia Eden, and I hope that I will be invited to read more of her lengthy backlist.  She has produced an incredible number of stories that are obviously well-loved, judging by the star-ratings on GoodReads.

Note:  while I was given this book as a gifted copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
