My story is: Mistletoe, Stakes and Yuletide Cheer

What’s a hunter to do when she’s fallen for the vampire she’s been sent to stake?

To stake or not to stake is the least of their problems when masked men kidnap them and hold them hostage. They realize all they want for Christmas is a chance to make their relationship work. Kisses under the mistletoe may not make this holiday merry, but they’re willing to give it a shot.
