Holidays are rough. The expectations are high, the disappointments inevitable, and family is… well, tricky, even at the best of times. This December, I'm going home for Christmas. It's the one time a year I actually get to see my family, and usually it's fine. This time? Well, let's just say navigating the normal crazy will be extra special with a vampire husband that none of my family got to see me marry, a fresh blood craving of my very own, and a more than slight aversion to the sun. Add to that an ex-boyfriend of mine is in town and causing trouble, and my best friend's husband has a big secret, and you have a cocktail for trouble not even my husband's very expensive cognac can ease the strain of. Tis the season. Hopefully, we'll make it to the New Year alive. Well… as alive as we vampires get.
