For the first time ever, the leader of the Viking Vampire Angels, Vikar Sigurdsson, has been talked into celebrating a traditional Christmas! The tree has been decorated, the gifts have been wrapped, and the stockings have been hung. And that's mistletoe, not cobwebs, hanging from the ceiling of the creepy castle full of vangels … really!

The icing on the vampire cookie comes when vangel Karl Mortensen rescues Faith Larson, a battered young waitress, from her abusive boyfriend and hides her in the castle amidst the Christmas chaos. But what Karl thought was a frail young teenager is actually a very tempting woman. And she thinks his fangs are sexy!

But a strange "Christmas visitor" at the castle and demon vampires up to their old tricks could threaten the budding romance between Karl and Faith. It's an impossible match—a human and a vangel—but Christmas is a time for magic.

Karl and Faith don't stand a chance …

This was my first Deadly Angels book, probably not the best place to start this series, but I still really enjoyed it! After this I read Vampire in Paradise (review coming soon!), and I will be going back to read the first books. This book was a quick read that featured a fair amount of humor, a good romance and quirky but loveable characters.

Karl was made into a vangel during Vietnam, so he's actually considered fairly young according to the other vangels. He's been alone for a while now and a trip to his local diner leads him to check up on Faith, one of the waitresses, after her co-worker suspects abuse. Karl's had his eye on Faith for a while and feels the need to make sure she's safe.

Faith is trapped in an abusive relationship, and has been wanting out for a while, Karl gives her a way out by showing up. Faith has been badly beaten and Karl takes her home to the castle so that she can heal. Karl and Faith fall for each other quickly, although they had seen each other before on occasion so it wasn't like they hadn't ever met before this story starts. Add to the mix some funny holiday happenings and it was a great paranormal holiday read!

Christmas in Transylvania is a quick read, that will leave you with a smile on your face. I always love a good holiday romance to get me in the spirit and this book did exactly that. The characters are really memorable and I couldn't wait to get the next book started!
