But it is also not THIS kind of books to rack your brain about the ending, right? This one made me smile, more than once, and it is a good sign. I'm not a big fan of a paranormal genre, but in a small dose I can cope with it pretty well. And the idea of Santa called on this unusual trio - a vampire, a werewolf and a sprite- for the late shift, because the Union Chief-Elves and Gnomes Division called his workers out on strike and he himself can't visit everywhere on one night, can he?
Think of logistics. Finally, someone has to bring kids their Christmas gifts! To tell the truth, I don't remember why in one of the last houses that this hilarious trio entered, a sweet guy, Benny, who was babysitting, suddenly SAW them- they were supposed to be invisible for humans- but I don't care. Benny oohed and aahed uninvited housebreakers, mostly of course Irwin, and didn't show not EVEN a tiny trace of angst, just the opposite, and went almost straight to the point Irwin was excited and I pleased. The end. Dec 01, Serena Yates rated it it was amazing Shelves: humor-comedy , gay , read , shifters , vampires , holiday.
What a delightful surprise — a paranormal Christmas story that is funny, sweet, and has some very hot moments to boot. Irwin despises human sentimentality — until he meets Benny, the babysitter who catches the team in the middle of an otherwise standard package delivery. How is Irwin supposed to resist the temptation of making out — and more —with a human who has a vampire fetish? Going to resist, I mean. What follows is more hilarity, some unplanned extra gifts that are not covered by the official budget, and a scene in the bushes with activities that are not approved according to the manual, but that make Benny and Irwin very happy indeed.

Participating in Dreamspinner Press's annual advent calendar is a true joy for me. Each year is a different theme and this year's hits close to home. Just not something I've ever gotten super excited about, at least not since I grew up, so this year's batch of stories delighted me to no end. A vampire, werewolf, and a sprite walk into a house. Actually, the vampire walks through the wall and then opens the window for the other two.
While they Participating in Dreamspinner Press's annual advent calendar is a true joy for me. While they're good-naturedly squabbling, Benny a human! This violates Santa's number one rule. What to do? Irwin certainly didn't intend to get into a philosophical discussion with Benny over why Santa is giving toys to wealthy children who already have tons, while the orphans could certainly use more than just one toy each. With a snarky, sarcastic werewolf, and a slightly drunk sprite, all Irwin wants is to be left alone with Benny. It's been a really long time.
A wonderful, funny, tongue-in-cheek Christmas story. Thank you, Clare. View 2 comments.

So…um…Well this was a new take on the standard Christmas tale and it was hilariously sexy. Who would have thought that when Santa gets in a pinch for present delivery, he calls on the creatures of the night to fill in?
But really, Benny the babysitting human steals the show wi 3. But really, Benny the babysitting human steals the show with his reaction to seeing the threesome and deciding that Irwin needed a taste of what Benny was offering. Yeah, there were some cheesy lines but this was fun and different for a holiday read. Check out all the reviews for this story here Bite Night was a hilarious creative read for me. I really enjoyed this short story. I'm really liking Clare London's writing, this is my 3rd book by her. It was a little over the place, but I liked this chaotic mess.
Irwin is the only vampire in Santa's arsenal who can help him deliver presents. He's very direct when we first meet him, but the first meeting with Benny has Irwin thinking twice about following direction. I love the little Bite Night was a hilarious creative read for me. I love the little group that was with Irwin. This is definitely something I could see myself reading full length.atdunlodoodre.tk

I really enjoyed this different take on a Holiday stories!!!! Nov 27, Diverse rated it it was amazing Shelves: decemberreads. We have a Werewolf, a vampire, a Sprite, and then we have Benny lol. This was a short, sweet, hilarious story that I absolutely loved. I could easily see this story becoming a full length novel or even a series of adventures with this crazy crowd. View 1 comment.

Cute, young, vampire groupie Benny, who is pretty much ready to drop trou just as soon a This was such a fun little story! The author did a great job of building the sexual tension between the men and then letting those sparks ignite. The interaction between Irwin and Benny was cute and sexy and humorous all rolled into thirty short pages.
Add to that the characters of snarky, drooly werewolf, Wulf and the slightly inebriated sprite, Zilith and there was plenty here to keep a reader entertained. I just wish that I could see what happens next! Yes, that was a hint for the author! Dec 04, Jordan rated it really liked it Shelves: alphabookclub. Actual review is 3. He was a little bit awkward and a lot infatuated with a little human who happened upon him trying to set out presents for the kids Benny babysits. This was more of a light-hearted insta-love Actual review is 3.
This was more of a light-hearted insta-love tale with a vampire and a little Christmas twist. It was interesting to read, nonetheless, and I really enjoyed the fantasy element since most of the short tales in this advent calendar have been contemporary romance. Bite night was refreshing, interesting, and funny. It was a good addition to the Bah Humbug advent calendar! Disclaimer: This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This story is deceptively simple, funny in so many great ways, and just plain enjoyable. Clare London has written a fun romp of a story that left me smiling well after the last page. Its snappy dialogue, with just enough snark to make you chuckle, is added to a feel good plot line that is just zany enough to really work! Bite Night is well done, humorous, and steamy good in all the right ways. Nov 23, Morgan Skye rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewed , funny , , paranormal , holiday.
Reading this is like a little bite of delicious, rich, chocolate cake. Clare London gives us a ragtag group of paranormals who work for Santa delivering presents. The pixie gets drunk, the werewolf is a grumpy bastard and the Vampire a sweet and sentimental soul who falls for a pair of big eyes.

This is seriously my favorite time of year and I look forward to all the Merry Jizzmas so hard. I'm really loving this years stories, I'm basically having a daily squeefest of holiday overload. I absolutely adored that set up for the story. And Benny was just so captivated by Irwin and the fact he was a vampire, it was just too cute how they acted around each other. My only complaint is the length. I wish it had been longer to really explore the relationship between Irwin and Benny.
In the end, a pretty great short story. I loved the characters and found the setting completely endearing. Sesame Street favourite, Grover will do whatever he can to stop the reader from discovering the monster at the end of the book, begging the reader not to finish it so as to avoid the monster!

Before the night is through, a houseful of hippos has joined the one hippo for a boisterous bash.

Personally I could never see what was so special about grug or the Mr Men series but I know that others loved them. Heaps of our favourites are in your suggestions but this list was very much pres publication :. Whst a lovely list! I would love to see a top 50 of books first published in the last thirty years.
Great idea, Meredith, will have to put that one on my to do list. And of course you are right about Brown Bear! For some reason, only the first half of my comment posted Eric Carle was the illustrator. How can I get all these books n guide me to facilitate my daughter for reading picture and discription. Love the list choices.
Interesting how many of these older books are being reissued now often in s slightly larger size , as parents and grandparents have such wonderful memories of them. Its a quick 5 minute read and one that is sure to entertain with it's imaginative storytelling. We're hopeful that you will give the book an honest review on Amazon once you've read it.

I will think further but that is what comes to mind first :. Hi, Any idea what the book is called about a very quiet man who then gets a very noisy bird. I feel like I have turned into this character and think about that book often. I had the book in the late 60's, early 70's. The name of it is driving me crazy. I hope you can help me find my favorite childhood book. Of course I can't remember the name.
It was a hardcover, picture book. The little girl in the story i think home alone discovered that whatever she planted, that kind of tree would grow. She planted a balloon tree, and the next day a tree full of balloons was out back. Then their was a present tree, lollipop i think tree, etc. I feel like the cover was a pale yellow background.
