Welcome to this stop on the Holiday Delights blog hop! I’m glad you’re here. If you’re a paranormal romance fan, there’s nothing better than a steamy, fang-filled Sweetblood Christmas story to get you in the mood for the holidays, right? That, and a good cookie recipe for National Cookie Day.
In Enchanted By Blood, the short story in the anthology A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS, the sizzle between Trace and Charlotte will warm even the coldest of hearts. Also included are stories by Michelle Hauf, Caridad Pineiro and Alexis Morgan.
Former Guardian Trace Westfalen is poised to take over his father’s seat on the Council, but he won’t be voted in if he’s in a relationship with a human. Party planner Charlotte Grant feels an odd connection to the man who hired her to decorate his home for a big holiday party, but she’s never met him before…or has she?
As things heat up between them and danger closes in, Trace has a difficult decision to make: Tell Charlotte the truth about what happened last year and risk everything, or lie and disappear from her life forever.

One of my family’s favorite holiday cookie recipes comes from my mom. She’s been making these chewy, spicy cookies ever since I can remember.
3/4 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. molasses
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
Mix in order given. Form into balls the size of walnuts. Roll in granulated sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes, just until the cookies start to crinkle on the top. Don’t overbake or the cookies will be crunchy. Remove from oven, let cool on pan slightly before transferring to a wire rack. Enjoy!
Be sure to hop to the next blog for another sizzling holiday read and cookie recipe. And a big thanks to Jessa Slade for organizing all of this!
Only one word-Yum!!
Ginger snaps are my all time favorite cookie. The bite of the ginger mixed with the sweetness is perfect with a cup of tea or a glass of milk. Happy Atonality Cookie Day!
Same! It really is a great cookie. Perfect for dunking…or not.
Sounds great! 🙂 Love cookies…
I love ginger snaps! This recipe seems quick and easy (also something I love!) Happy Cookie Day! 🙂
Yes, they are easy. You’ll have to try them!!!
Yum! Time to break out the molasses!
Exactly! Which reminds me. I think I’m getting low… (we make these a lot)
Our families favorite cookie is snickerdoodle. This recipe sounds good so we will have to try it. Thanks
Ginger and spices make the perfect treat for Christmas. Those spices always say Christmas to me.
Same here, Shelley. I smell them and think of Christmas.
I adore the chewy version of ginger cookies. And the crispy ones too, I guess 🙂 With the cloves and cinnamon, I bet these are great with tea or hot cocoa. Perfect for winter!
Snickerdoodle or Macadomanian nuts. Dunno why those are two new favorites of mine
For me, Ginger Snaps are a wake up cookie. The combination of sweet and spicy begs to go with coffee. I have to admit I haven’t had one of these in years. You are making me salivate.
Oh yum! Spicy cookies are so great, and these look really yummy. I love the scent of any cookie baking, but spice cookies smell extra awesome.
Oh my DH loves these. I’ll have to make him a batch. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
If you do, let me know how he likes them!
I’m not sure why the comments are all jumbled together! Grrr!
I am looking forward to trying out your books!
Thanks, Lavon! I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
