“Enchanted By Blood” 2.5

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.

Ginger Snaps

3/4 c. shortening

1 c. sugar

1 egg

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!
