Every year I’m usually asked to write a holiday short story or two that are included in multi-author anthologies, and every year I say yes. Who doesn’t love a holiday themed short story with their favorite characters? I certainly do. Usually these stories are exclusive to the anthology for a specific time frame, then I’m free to release them on their own. Now, finally, I’m getting around to doing just that. Last night I got the four (yes four!) files loaded on all the vendors for any of you who may have missed them when they were first released. Enjoy!
A Jade Calhoun short story featuring Kat Hart:
It’s Valentine’s Day and magic’s in the air. Only Kat Hart never expected her handmade jewelry to be at the center of everything. So when her night out at Cupid’s Ball turns into a competition to be a handsome stranger’s wife, it’s up to her to break the spell…or she might get more than she bargained for. *Originally published in Kiss and Spell in 2016*
A Jade Calhoun short story:
It’s Christmas Eve and Jade Calhoun’s ready for a quiet, magical night with her husband Kane. But when Santa demons and energy-stealing elves start wreaking havoc, it’s going to take a miracle on Bourbon Street to save Christmas. *Originally published in Hex the Halls in 2015*
A Pyper Rayne short story:
It’s Halloween and Pyper Rayne’s all vamped up, ready to play the vampire bride. And so is Ida May, her resident ghost. But when the “vampires” they’re partying with start to appear to be real, there’s more at stake that just a little bite. *Originally published in Spell of the Ball in 2015*
A Coven Pointe short story:
The last place sex-witch Mati Ballintine wants to be is at a holiday sorority party. But when the high angel from the council orders her to protect a new angel recruit, she has no choice but to go and grit her teeth through the frat boys’ advances.
The night turns from bad to worse when a demon appears and is hell-bent on taking the angel to Hell. Mati and her incubus boyfriend Vaughn will need to combine forces to not only save the angel, but everyone else the demon leaves in his wake.*Originally published in Kiss of Christmas Magic in 2014*
