Not His Christmas by Annie Nicholas 💕 Flash FREE eBook 💕(Holiday Dragon Shifter Romance)

Not everybody loves Christmas and Eoin, Harbinger of Smoke and Darkness, can’t believe his new mate, Angie, is one of them.

He loves Christmas. All of it. Lights, tree, food, presents, especially presents. Bring it on.
But his mate is not on board with celebrating. She wants them to skip Christmas.
As the holiday draws closer, she grows more withdrawn and sad.
He's not sure what to do.

💕 December 23-26 💕


Eoin Grant hasn’t encountered a female of his race in decades, and this crazy person’s scent declares her unmated. Fate set her in his path, and he won’t let this opportunity slip through his claws. No matter how wary she is of him. After all, how many chances does a dragon have at finding love? But fate can be a crueler mistress than his perfect mate. Of all things, she thinks she’s human.

Business is taking off for Angie Weldon. She put her freakishly sharp nails to good use when she opened her back-scratching spa in downtown New Port. The local shifter community pounced on her skills and she’s knee-deep in shed fur. By the end of the year, if lucky, she could afford to move out of her crappy apartment.

Dollar signs flash before Angie’s eyes when a dark, brooding stranger books her solid for a week but she notices the possessive fury in his glare. She’s been around enough shifters to know the look, and she won’t go down that road again. Angie is literally swept off her feet by the intense shifter and he wants more from her than she’s willing to give. She figures it’s best to avoid eye contact and back away slowly. Until he changes her life by insisting she’s a dragon.

(Full length novel. No cliffhangers. Here be dragons.)

Hot. Intense. Hot. Fun. Hot. I loved it!

This is tied for my favorite Annie book. In her typical fashion, she wove a story with an excellent pace, some laugh-out-loud moments, and plenty of steam.

Or dragon-smokin'-hotness, in this case.

Angie was hilarious! I absolutely loved her sass and her independence.

Eoin was total alpha but with a softer side when it came to Angie, which made him absolutely adorable.

This was one of those books that I could not stop reading. I found myself sneaking a few pages in literally every free minute I had.

I loved this book, and I can't wait to read what Annie writes next!

After being disowned and labelled human because she can’t shift, Betty Newman rescues unwanted dogs to fulfill her need for pack. Being rejected by her birth pack was enough pain for a lifetime and she’ll do anything to avoid subjecting herself to their prejudices.

Things change when Ken Birch wakes in her kennel still in wolf form and declares she’s his soul mate. His presence wakes her feral heart and makes her long for a life she can’t have. Old wounds are opened and she refuses to listen to instinct.

But only a shifter can be a soul mate and now her life is in danger by New Port’s pack. Either Betty learns to shift or she dies. Problem is the only one willing to help is Ken, the last person she wants.
I love these books!

I also love Annie's writing style. As I say in all of my reviews of Annie-books, she has the perfect balance of heat and humor, and they always leave me with a smile and wanting more!

In addition, she has a unique talent for writing shifters. She gives them human qualities in their animal form and vice-versa, and she does it in such a way that I've never really seen done before.

I was really cheering for Betty. She couldn't shift, and that left her in limbo between the human and paranormal worlds. Her struggle was so touching, but what she lacked in sense of self, she made up for with sass!

Ken was every bit the dominant male. I enjoyed reading his devotion to Betty and how he handled being introduced to her wacky way of thinking.

The ending was so awesome, and I was SO so happy for both of them!

This is the second book I've read in this series. While it's not necessary to have read Not His Dragon in order to enjoy this book, I HIGHLY recommend it. Angie and Eoin (from that book) hang out a lot in this story, and I was so happy that I got to catch up with them!

I can't wait for more in this series!!!

(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

Magic is real. Shifters exist. Trixie Russell knows this. Everyone does. But no one told her about the monster lurking in the basement of the dragon’s castle. Not until it was too late.

Victor Petrov is ancient, and vampires his age should not lose control of their hunger. And yet that’s exactly the problem which landed him chained in a dragon’s dungeon. Then in walks a human female with cotton candy hair who smells like sunshine, her pulse a sweet melody in his parched ears, and the fragile thread of his control snaps. Again.

Like it or not, Trixie is now tied to Viktor's, and he seems short a few marbles. She plans on making his eternity a misery until he reveals they have an enemy in common. Trixie is totally on board with helping him escape so she could get her revenge. After that, she’s done. They’re over. She wouldn’t be his vampire.
A PERFECT blend of funny, suspenseful and sexy!

Annie writes my type of humor. Don't get me wrong, this is NOT a romantic comedy and is DEFINITELY for PNR fans 18+, but the feisty, snarky quips that came out of Trixie had me REALLY enjoying the story!

I really liked the dynamic between Trixie and Viktor. Aside from being physically bound to each other, they learned that they also need each other in different ways.

As usual, Annie hints at the romance early on and then lets it slowly burn, adding a little fuel every now and then until BAM! And holy smokes when it does!!!

I enjoyed catching up with the couples from the first two books in the series. While I don't think it's necessary to read their books before this one, I REALLY think you'll want to! (I especially loved Not His Dragon).

I absolutely LOVE this series, as well as every single thing Annie writes, and I'm on pins and needles waiting to see what she comes up with next!

(I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

Ruby is done with jerks, dead-end jobs, and eviction notices. Everyone else she knows is finding ways out of this crappy neighborhood, so why can’t she? Since opportunities refuse to fall from the sky, Ruby makes her own. To hell with the little voice in her heart whispering about love. She never met a man she wanted to keep…then she met a gargoyle. Men were boring after all.

Nick was a con, a thief, and a rogue. He couldn’t keep a dime in his pocket even if it was glued. Then he met a ruby. Not one from the earth but one of flesh and blood. And ass. Let’s not forget the ass. Stealing her heart was now all he wanted.

He has a plan that could make both their dreams come true. It only involves an itsy-bitsy risk. All they must do is rob a witch.

Oh, and avoid the dragons.

Warning: Beware of despicable gargoyles with hearts of gold. They will sweep you off your feet when you're not looking.

I feel like a broken record with all of my Annie reviews; perfect amount of humor, engaging characters, smoking-hot love scenes, and her books have some kind of magical power that suck me in from page one and then BAM! I've finished it.

It may also have something to do with the brilliant way Annie incorporates action/adventure into the romance. I can't say enough how thoroughly I enjoyed this little quest!

I've read every book in this wonderful world set in New Port, and I don't plan on stoppin' now!
