E.J. Stevens is the author of the SPIRIT GUIDE young adult paranormal series, the HUNTERS' GUILD urban fantasy series, and the bestselling IVY GRANGER urban fantasy series.
Bite Before Christmas contains two short stories/novellas, one from Jeaniene Frost and one from Lyndsay Sands. Both stories were excellent.
The Gift (Argeneau #15.5) is a paranormal romance with the high heat level you expect from Lyndsay Sands. I was worried that this might have an ick factor due to the lead male's age, but I got past that quickly. A fun romp in holiday snowstorm that's a perfect quick read for the holidays.
Home for the Holidays (Night Huntress #6.5) had the paranormal romance spark we love between Cat and Bones, but was primarily an edge-of-your-seat urban fantasy with nearly all of our favorite Night Huntress characters. This story is also set during the holidays which makes it a fun holiday read.
I don't know about you, but the holidays are chaotic here and so I find myself on a short story/anthology/novella kick this time of year. The Bite Before Christmas contained two excellent stories at the perfect length for my holiday-induced short attention span. 5-stars.
