Enchanted by the Blood by Laurie London Sweetblood Series 2.5
Charlene Grant went out with her friend but was leaving alone. Kari took off with some guy she thought could help her climb the work ladder. On the way to her car two guys start coming after Charlene. She runs into a hard chest and a deep voice tells her to go to her car and wait. For some reason she feels safe with the stranger and does as he says.
Trace Westfalen felt an urgency to go to a part of town he usually did not frequent. Sure enough he found Charlene in trouble. A couple of Dark bloods were after her. He had her wait and she did. Bad mistake. A year ago Charlene had been hired to decorate the mansion for Christmas. During that time Trace spent a lot of time with her. Being a vampire it was never wise to get too close to a human but he did. Until the fateful night she walked into a room where Sebastian was feeding. The horror on her face left Trace with no choice but to wipe her memories. A year later and he stills feels for her what he never felt before.
Charlene could not believe she let Trace drive her home and then invited him in. She was not that kind of person and yet something about him was so familiar and safe. He left her the next morning and she did not hear from him for a week. He had hired her to decorate for their Christmas Party.
Trace could not stay away and he finally decided that being elected to Council or anything else in his life would not be worthwhile without Char. And once he told her the truth of who he was and that they knew each other, she still looked at him the same.
Monsters Don't Do Christmas by Michele Hauf
Daniel is a vampire, not by birth and not by choice. He was a hot shot on wall street until the night of his attack. Now he just considers himself a monster and just exists. Although he does see where his life slowed down and he can look back and see he was not all he thought he was.
Olivia considers herself a type of monster when she's all dressed up and made up to sing on stage. When she comes home to the quiet place she stays a few weeks out of the year she breaks up a fight and invites the man who was being beat up by two others into her home. So what that he ends up being a vampire. It ends up being more than a one night stand for Daniel and Olivia. Even though she is in the spotlight and he has to stay away from it. Can two such opposites actually fall in love and make a relationship work?

When Herald Angels Sing by Caridad Pineiro
A century ago Damien was a different man. He did not realize Angelina's worth to him until she died to save him from Remirez, who then turned Damien into a vampire anyways. When Angelina returned a century later Damien could not believe it. She was light in his dark world. And both times he met her it was right before Christmas Eve. Once again Remirez the evil vampire he is, comes to tear them apart once again. And once again Angelina gets in the way and dies. It is now a year later and Damien is outside of his lighthouse watching, waiting and hoping for one more chance with her.
He does not know that she is really is guardian angel and that she is there to guide him to the right path.
She does come back again. She will need his help and he will have to face Remirez one more time and try to keep the demon that lives within him silent if he has any chance of saving Angelina and his own soul, which he had thought was lost long ago. Either way, it looks like their last Christmas Eve together.
All I Want For Christmas by Alexis Morgan
This was a great story. Eagan is an undercover cop and a vampire. He is searching for some young vampires who have been luring teens to drink from and they had found a few dead. His search had him near a diner and had him watching the beautiful owner of the diner, Della. He decided that hanging out at the diner may help him watch the area better. A friend of Della's gave him evil looks, he didn't know what had that she-wolf hating him but there had always been bad blood between the species.
Della was so drawn to Eagan, even though Lupe kept warning her to stay away from him. He had a sadness and loneliness about him. When she ends up cutting herself in the middle of the night, Eagan is there to help her and heal her. Della finds out quickly that the world around her was not what she had always thought it to be.

Enchanted by Blood by Laurie London - A Sweet Bloods connected short - Trace's destiny didn't allow for the love of a human, so he erased Charlotte's memory of their love together, but fate has other ideas... This was pleasant enough, the preexisting connection makes the story work - even without her memories Charlotte feels drawn to Trace - my only issues were with terms from the world building: Darkbloods, Sweet bloods just struck me as being a bit cheesy. I like this one, but if it hadn't been a short story the painless (well at least for Trace) resolution of the main conflict would have bugged me. (I liked it)
Monsters Don't Do Christmas by Michele Hauf - A diva on holiday decides to learn how to take risks starting out by diving into a fling with a vampire - This one was pretty good too, I never really saw why the singer sees herself as a monster, but I liked that she is able to help the vamp to realize that even though he is a blood sucker in reality - he was a figurative killer in his former life - he doesn't have the soul of a monster. (I liked it)
When Herald Angels Sing by Caridad Piniero - Third time is the charm for a vampire and the woman he has loved and lost before, he has sworn that this time will be different - The ending was good, but I wasn't overly fond of what came before, I generally like Piniero's stories but there was just way too much sex and not enough development of the relationship for this grand love that the leading man has for a woman who has died immediately after each of their encounters in the past. (It was ok)
All I Want for Christmas by Alexis Morgan - On the hunt for a supernatural who is preying on teens, a loner vamp enforcer develops an attraction to a woman with a big heart. - This was my favorite of the stories, the woman is just so caring that there was no way the vamp was going to be able to stay away for her own good, and the reveal was done in a smooth way too, but I especially liked the secrets of her little 'family' as well. (I really liked it)
