Holiday Magic~ An Anthology of Christmas Stories

Reading anthologies has become one of my favorite things to do. It’s a great way to catch up with some of my favorite authors, like T.A. Moorman, and get to know new ones that I want to read more. It’s hard to pick a favorite from these stories. I honestly liked them all. Each of these authors knows how to create incredible short stories. The characters drove each of the plot lines forcing me to ignore my family because I just HAD to read one more page, one more chapter, or one more story. I’m not for sure what the guidelines were for these stories. I’m assuming it was simple, like create a holiday story. It was fun to see how unique these stories are with such a broad theme. They were not like the standard Christmas trope. This made them all the more fun.

Tarnished Knight by K. Williams
Maia has resigned herself to living life alone, but lately she’s been restless. Maybe it has something to do with the handsome, hurt stranger who comes to the diner every night to walk her to her car after work. When she decides it’s time to try new things, the first impulsive act on her list is inviting Dominic to Thanksgiving dinner.
Dominic is nursing wounds from the past, but in Maia he sees a chance to start again – a chance at the wife and family he’s always wanted. But when his feelings for Maia overwhelm him, will he run, or will he stand and fight for their love like a knight in tarnished armor?
Spark of Solstice by A.K. Hudson
Santa’s Curse by T. A. Moorman
What if Santa was a vampire?
Jacquelyn, an enchantress with an overprotective streak, thinks it’s up to her to protect her older sister, Jadine, an enchantress who’s also a paranoid hypochondriac. So, whenever a male comes along trying to use Jadine, Jackie gets rid of them, in a non-conventional way. When the last person Jacquelyn expects, a certain vampire she’s had a not so little crush on, seems to be creeping around on her sister, she has no choice but to get rid of him, too. In front of witnesses. Only to find out one second too late that she had it all wrong.
Victor, like many males, has issues expressing how he truly feels. When he finally decides it’s time to stop running from fate and claim his mate, he goes to her sister for advice. But, creeping in and out of Jadine’s place like a thief in the night leads the very person he wants to win over to draw all the wrong conclusions. Which leads to him trading in his pale good looks for a white beard and a red velvet suit.
Now that the town knows Jacquelyn is the one behind all of the disappearances, and thinking she’s killed all of those that are missing, they’re out for her blood. And the only one who can save her is, well, Santa. But will he be able to make it back to her before it’s too late?
Enjoy a brand new tale of how Santa Clause came to be.

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with anthologies. There great in the way that they are just short stories, and you get a snippet of how a writer writes. However, you always seem to find at least one story (in my experience) that just lets the rest of the book down.

  2. I love a good anthology! I will keep these in mind for next holiday season. I tried a few Christmasy books this past December and was less than thrilled.

  3. That cover is to DIE for.
    Anthologies are hit or miss for me.
    I have a bunch of freebies in my Amazon cloud, but haven’t gotten around to trying them yet… *eep*
