From the Inside Flap
A distinct combination of smells tickled his nose from the area of the futon. Besides Paul's unique scent there were echoes of other men. Different colognes or bathing products. Latex, foil, something oily, and then...
Taviano turned away as he identified traces of semen. The turmoil in his chest that the evidence of Paul's life produced disturbed him. If he could blush, he would.
Paul finished with his boots and socks and tugged off his bloodied T-shirt. Tossing the garments in a heap on the floor, he strode to the sink. Dressed only in low-slung corduroys, he turned on the faucet and began to scrub away dried blood on his shoulder and palm.
Taviano took in the sight of lean muscle, flexing under pale skin as Paul washed. That skin reminded him of cream. A tattoo of a tree adorned Paul's back. Its delicately drawn branches spread to his shoulders. The twisted and sturdy trunk disappeared into the mistletoe-themed boxers resting low on his hips. One side of the tree showed a splintered stump, as if someone had wrenched off a branch.
Although curious about the imagery, Taviano wondered more how that inked skin would feel under his lips. Then he wondered why he wondered. His demon's hunger for blood drove him for such long years. He'd all but forgotten what it was like to hunger for touch.

This was an incredibly well developed and written story, and while I normally dislike the Christmas season, my heart was warmed by this wonderful story of sacrifice, love, and bonding. My only complaints are that I wish it had been longer, and I also wish that the slang Paul used was accompanied by a glossary. Those are very minor quibbles, and I highly recommend Vampire Claus. It's weird, but if you're looking to regain the true meaning of Christmas, the vampire Taviano and his human lover Paul are just the people you need to put you into the holiday spirit.
A short and fast moving action adventure...
A little bit of naughty and a whole lot of nice!
The main characters just crawl into your heart from the very first line till the last.
Enough servings of cute humour to keep you giggling too.
Standalone story with some explicit steamy scenes and a smidgen of horror to fall in with the vampire theme.
However, a Merry Christmas is had by all.
I absolutely loved this book!

I received an advanced reader copy of this book directly from the author, and have voluntarily submitted my review.
Thank you, Robert.
I loved the author's writing style; his prose was elegant and modern. Winter was able to weave a wonderful tale with a satisfying backstory in a little over 100 pages.
I loved Taviano and Paul's story...it had the perfect balance of banter, action (some violence), humor, scorching sex, and actual sweetness. The ending was like a huge Christmas gift, with a big red bow.
The beautiful book cover fits a very beautiful story.
