First Lines:  His favourite prey.  Rafe stood on the lawn, his dark eyes following her from room to room in her large house.
It was one last mission. Shannon, a demon hunter with the agency, is looking forward to leaving behind the small town and the vampire she’s been stuck with for the past two years. Things are getting complicated fast and she wants out. A fresh start, free of her vampire partner, awaits her if she can survive their final mission and the lonely Christmas holidays.

It was one last mission. Rafe, a vampire doing time with the agency, watches it approach with dread weighing heavily in his stomach. Two years of working with Shannon has been difficult, especially since he started falling for her, but he doesn’t want their partnership to end. He has barely a few days to make her face her feelings and stop her from leaving, and he intends to do just that.

When a slimy demon threatens the season of peace and goodwill, it’s the chance Rafe has been waiting for and the moment Shannon secretly fears. Rafe’s determination to prise open her heart and her own resolve to keep it closed clash as violently as they do with the demon, and threatens to end as messily.
Can Rafe make Shannon see that his love for her is real and that she feels something for him too? Can Shannon face her fears and her past, and stop herself from running away from both? Will a wish on a star bring her what her heart truly desires—a vampire for Christmas?

My Thoughts:
I have just finished reading this one and one word.  Wow!  As always Felicity has done a great job of creating fantastic characters and storyline.  Admittedly this is far shorter than the usual books I read but once I started, I was drawn into Shannon and Rafe's world quickly.

One of the things I liked about this one was the ever changing viewpoints and it was easy to distinguish one from the other.  I also enjoyed the humour that was thrown in there, particularly when it came to the fight scenes. 

I won't say too much else as the synopsis reveals quite alot, but if you like your paranormal romances with a bit of suspense and fantastic HOT scenes this one is for you.  That is if you are an adult ;)
