Vampire for Christmas by Felicity Heaton

Don't let the cover full you! This is more of a paranormal romance than an erotica. However, it does have a sex scene, so be aware.  

It was one last mission. Shannon, a demon hunter with the agency, is looking forward to leaving behind the small town and the vampire she's been stuck with for the past two years. Things are getting complicated fast and she wants out. A fresh start, free of her vampire partner, awaits her if she can survive their final mission and the lonely Christmas holidays.

It was one last mission. Rafe, a vampire doing time with the agency, watches it approach with dread weighing heavily in his stomach. Two years of working with Shannon has been difficult, especially since he started falling for her, but he doesn't want their partnership to end. He has barely a few days to make her face her feelings and stop her from leaving, and he intends to do just that.

Charlotte Baskerville, designer of small dog clothing, is asked if her Russian dog trainer will play Santa at the last minute. As she struggles to get him ready, an elf costume and other Chihuahua couture disappear from her workshop. This is a stand-alone story that features characters from the full-length mystery, 'Chihuahua of the Baskervilles,' published by St. Martin's Press.


Audiobook: Starry Night by Debbie Macomber

I have seen Debbie Macomber's books everywhere but never had the chance to read them. I also did not know where to start since she had so many books. However, those who have read her books kept suggesting to read her holiday ones, so I picked up two Christmas audios. Here's one: by Rebecca Lowman
Duration: 5 hours 21 minutes

Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge: She can cover any topic she wants, but only if she first scores the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author.

Audiobook: Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler

Read by Orlagh Cassidy,204,203,200_.jpg
Duration:   7 hours 22 minutes

 After nursing a broken engagement with Jane Austen novels and Absolut, Courtney Stone wakes up to find herself not in her Los Angeles bedroom or even in her own body, but inside the bedchamber of a woman in Regency England. Who but an Austen addict like herself could concoct such a fantasy?

Not only is Courtney stuck inside another woman's life, she is forced to pretend she actually is that woman; and despite knowing nothing about her, she manages to fool even the most astute observer. For her borrowed body knows how to speak without slaying the King's English, dance without maiming her partner, and embroider as if possessed by actual domestic skill.

I've been gone a while from my blog. I will be posting an update very soon! But here's my audiobook wrap-up!

I wish I could have listened to more book liked I planned at the beginning of the year but life just got in the way. I hardly did any reading the second half of 2015, print or audio, due to going back to school after 7 years to get my teaching credential. However, 2015 is not over yet and I hope to get a few more reads in before midnight on December 31st!!!

This is what I listened to in 2015:
