I honestly didn’t care much for Don Orlando, the infamous Latin vampire lover and soap opera star. In the previous book of the series, he came off as a comically melodramatic playboy who sleeps with nearly every woman he meets, but this short story shows a whole new side to him that I didn’t expect.
Readers get to find out that he’s not the man we thought he was, and in fact, he has a very sympathetic and mysterious past. He turns out to be a really stand-up guy who truly is worthy of Maggie’s love. I really liked Maggie when she was introduced as Darcy’s friend in Vamps and the City. She struck me as a kind, caring woman whose story of being turned vampire tugs at the heartstrings. She had a mad crush on Don Orlando, and wanted nothing more than to become his leading lady.
Well, she got her wish, but he didn’t end up being all she thought he would be, which broke her heart. Once he starts opening up to her though about his past, she wants nothing more than to help him find his family in hopes of reconciling with them in time for Christmas. A Very Vampy Christmas has a delightful cast of secondary characters.

Ian, one of the Scottish guards, helps Maggie and Don Orlando with their investigation. Between his Scottish accent and kilt and him not being able to get people to believe he’s not a kid but a centuries-old vampire, this guy is adorable.
We get to meet the New Soarks coven master, and two transvestite vampires who are a total hoot. Don Orlando’s family ends up being a mixed bag of personalities who were a lot of fun too. This novella had a few weaknesses.
The romance was sweet, but it would have been nice to have a little more build up. The one brief love scene felt kind of rushed too.
A Very Vampy Christmas
The Christmas theme only orbits the periphery of the story with very little actual celebration of the holiday present. The supposed family curse wasn’t very well explained either, but overall, A Very Vampy Christmas was an entertaining diversion that I enjoyed reading. A Very Vampy Christmas can be purchased as a stand-alone novella in e-book format and can also be found in the print anthology, Sugarplums and Scandal.
Aug 13, Fanny rated it it was ok. Avery Vampy Christmas es la primera novela de la serie Love At Stake y narra la historia de Maggie y Don Orlando, personajes secundarios del segundo libro. No hay mucho que decir de esta lectura: Eche de menos que se profundizara mas en la trama y los personajes pero no se le puede pedir mas a una historia de menos de 90 paginas.
Me hizo mucha gracias la maldicion del mordisco! Nov 29, Krystal rated it liked it.
Now this I really liked!!! Maggie’s story was really good. Don Orlando isn’t who we all thought he was, he doesn’t even know. As we find out who he is, we learn kerreln new things on the way. The chemistry and heart ache was felt in this short story more than ever. On to the next!!!!
Nov 28, Janet Sanchez rated it really liked it Shelves: I actually enjoyed this. It was cute and Don Orlando was great in this one.
Krerelyn thought the worst of this man, but now I sparkw him!! Sep 10, Irene rated it it was amazing Shelves: Well, this was unexpected – I couldn’t imagine Don Orlando being a And his family is one interesting bunch of people: Oct 08, Nanou rated it liked it Shelves: Reading A Very Vampy Christmas should come with a warning for funny bones everywhere. Even after re-reading the story, I still giggled and guffawed. The only reason I was affected so effectively was because of the quality writing.
So even when I knew what to expect, the perfect comedic timing still came through making those clever parts continuously grin-worthy. The first hint that I had that Ms. Sparks had written a light and entertai originally posted at http: Sparks had written a light and entertaining tale was the ring incident.
My sudden urge to laugh uproariously would have had dire consequences for my laptop. Then the author switched gears after hooking me with humor. Talk about star crossed lovers! At that point, Ms. Sparks presented me with two people who very much needed love but had no idea how to go about it. I never saw that one coming and it was so gripping! They both had hurts. The best thing, however, is how they banded together to figure it out how to fix things.
They rose to the challenge, taking them both on an amazing journey of discovery and revelation. And after a bit of uncertainty and light drama, Ms. Sparks did it again. She made me laugh and giggle when I least expected it. And she brought in one of the hunky guys from McKay Security and Investigation.
I love it when characters from other books come and play too. Of course the mystery of just exactly who Don Orlando was ended up being the vrry on the cake. Poor guy, his first name as a vampire was very embarrassing but adorable. Then I got to meet, Scarlett and Tootsie–secondary characters guaranteed to have readers grinning from ear to ear. I have often wondered where the author comes up with all the goofiness curistmas hilarity she infuses her stories with.

Things did get serious for a bit, so readers will find plenty of meat and substance to hold the story together. It was good enough to keep my interest and have me rooting for the hero.
He had lost so much in his life and the goal of the sparka was to get it back and be worthy of loving Maggie. Eventually I got to find out who Don Orlando really was, where he kerrlyn from and what a very unusual family he has. In fact, that brought about more laughs and smiles as well as happiness. A Very Vampy Christmas is chock full of laughs, good kerelyn, spicy encounters and a satisfying happily ever after that will leave fans pleased and content.
I enjoyed the dialogue and the secondary characters. Sparks wrapped it all up. If a reader is looking to treat themselves to holiday cheer, this adorable paranormal romance vey do the trick.
