Publisher's Summary

This holiday season, join two of today’s most popular paranormal authors for a special look into their worlds, where creatures are always stirring and no one sleeps through the night.... The Bite Before Christmas

The Gift by Lynsay Sands: Teddy Brunswick knows about the immortals among us. He’s worked with them, called them friend - but he never counted on being snowed in with one over Christmas. Katricia Argeneau is a tasty little bundle and she seems to feel the same way about him. Problem is, he’s not sure she feels quite the same way. After all, the snowstorm has derailed her blood delivery, which leaves him the only available meal on the menu....

Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost: Cat and Bones are looking forward to a normal holiday - at least as “normal” as it gets for the combustible vampire couple and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a stranger shows up and reveals long-buried family secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer... and lives.

    Story
    "One out of two books were good"

    I gave this three stars across the board because one story was excellent and one wasn't.

    The Gift
    I haven't read anything else by Lynsay Sands, so I'm not familiar with her stuff. There seemed to be some interesting premises, and maybe some of her other books from this series would be good but I just couldn't get past the creepy old dude lusting after a young woman. Not the mental picture I want painted for me. And referring to his genitals as "little teddy?" Ick. Can't forget this book soon enough.

    Home for the Holidays
    Had this been the only book this download would have received five stars across the board. Jeaniene Frost continues to do an excellent job with the Night Huntress series and Tavia Gilbert does a great job with the narration. As always, it left me wanting more.

    The download is worth it for Home for the Holidays. Just don't feel bad about skipping The Gift. I wish I had.

    Story
    "Love to read about Cat and Bones"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I like both these authors but the story that stood out the most for me was Cat and Bones. Jeaniene Frost brought a new story line of Bones past that I was not expecting. Don't want to spoil it for anyone but this story is a good one to hear.


    What does Paula Christensen and Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I am not a fan of these narrators but they are not all bad.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I had to take a brake no and then.

    Story
    "CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY IF YOU TRULY GOOD!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definately recommend this audiobook to anyone who believes that all things are possible with the right circumstances. This book was written in such a way that the romance and tension is still there at the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the story built from an easy read to a story with romance and humor.


    What does Paula Christensen and Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Paula Christensen did a very good transition and with the fantastic Tavia Gilbert, the book comes to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Christmas comes to Fangville

    "Bah Humbug"

    I'm not a fan of haveing two authors in one book. I really didn't think that Sands did her usual job. Too short, and a bit lack luster.

    Story
    "Lynsay Sands Is As Always Excellent!"

    The Bite Before Christmas is Teddy Brunswick's story. The chief of police from Port Henry, is a lonely man reluctantly looking at retirement. He never dreams that he could be a lifemate to an immortal like his two best friends. Caught in a snowstorm, with no power he meets Katricia Argeneau, an immortal, who realizes that Teddy is her lifemate. Her aunt, Marguerite Argeneau, advised her to go slow with Teddy and not scare him away. It's a case of instant attraction, fun and . . . .

    What made the experience of listening to The Bite Before Christmas the most enjoyable?

    The writing was very funny and made for an enjoyable listen.

    I would reccomend it because Lyndsay Sands is a fabulous writer with a very funny approach to the subject matter.


    What aspect of Paula Christensen and Tavia Gilbert ???s performance would you have changed?

    The other 2 writers did not grab me nor pull me in to the story. I really did not listen for long.

    Lyndsay Sands book was, yes.

    "Let down"

    Very disapponted in this book. Waited with great anticipation, only to be let down with a short story. I hope Ms Sands is not losing her touch. The Argeneau's have much more life left in them yet and hopefully a better book is yet to come.
