Review Copy Source: Author
It has been seven years since Analette Dyson stopped practicing magic and headed to New York, where she created a new life, complete with a fabulous job, an apartment in Central Park West, and a sexy werewolf fiancé. She never planned on returning to her small home town in Maine, but when she learns her grandmother is ill, she decides to pop over for a visit and what better time than Christmas? Excited for her fiancé to meet her family, they head up a day early.

Worst idea ever!

After doing some last minute Christmas shopping, Analette returns to their hotel to find her fiancé in bed with another woman. Cursing the universe for her never ending bad luck with men and dreading telling her family about her cheating fiancé, she heads to the bar to self medicate.

Not one to celebrate the holidays, vampire and assassin, Cole McRae, has followed a lead to a rustic town in witch territory. But after a few days of research and waiting for his target to show, he begins to suspect he has wasted his time. That is, until he meets a curvaceous blonde with bewitching green eyes at the local bar. One night with the enchanting Analette could make this useless trip well worth his time.

Their passion is undeniable and unbeknownst to them, their fates are intertwined. Magic and romance will strike on Christmas, changing their lives forever.

A BEWITCHING CHRISTMAS was short, but had plenty to keep me occupied as I read. Analette and Cole meet in a bar and decide to go home together. Neither character is looking for long term when they decide to spend one night together, but they have an instant connection and sleeping together only cements that. Things get pretty hot, so be ready for the steam.  I really enjoyed learning a little bit about their backgrounds and the conflict of the book was well executed for such a small time frame. There were some neat surprised and Grandma was by far my favorite.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that A BEWITCHING CHRISTMAS isn't the end of Analette and Cole's story. I want to know where their relationship goes and how they will fit into each others lives.

I gave it 4/5 stars
