Read as part of A Christine Feehan Holiday Treasury. Wonderful wonderful stories ( )

December: I reread the second story in this collection, After the Music. It's been quite some time since I read it, but I remember not loving it the first time around. I definitely enjoyed it more this time. I love novels based around music and Feehan writes some excellent ones. She really captures the passion behind creating music, which is lovely to read about. I like that teenagers are featured here in a flattering and believable way.

September: I only re-read the Drake story in this collection this time around. I do plan to re-read the other novella soon, though. I can't remember my feelings about this book the first time around, but I really enjoyed it the second time.

I love that Sarah and Matt have both been lusting after each other from afar for years, without the other realizing it. I also loved that each of them felt clumsy and silly around the other. It was cute watching Matt turn red and Kate stumble along.

The storyline was one I enjoyed as well. I like watching the sisters come together to fight evil, especially when it's really difficult for them. Yes, yes, I'm a sadist. I know.

Bestselling novelist Kate Drake, one of seven sisters with amazing powers of witchcraft, wants to open a bookstore in a charming but run-down mill in her California hometown. Decorated former U.S. Army Ranger Matt Granite, now a contractor, doesn't mind helping- and getting closer to Kate. But when an earthquake exposes a crypt in the mill's foundation, a centuries-old evil threatens to destroy both Christmas and the gift of soul-searing passion Kate's hometown hero wants her to keep forever....

Terrified by mysterious threats, Jessica Fitzpatrick takes her twin wards to the island mansion of their estranged father, Dillon Wentworth, a famous musician who shut out the world after a fire claimed his wife's life and left him disfigured. With Christmas approaching, the spark between Dillon and Jessica might light the future, but the evil machinations of those who share his wife's love of the occult may plunge the family into darkness-unless a Christmas miracle occurs....

This was a nice short, escapist read during the holiday stress. Both stories are short and easy to read, and while still "trashy" enough to be a short romance they are definitely both the enjoyable kind. Perfect for a hot bath, a glass of wine, and some Christmas cookies after a long day! ( )
