Character’s Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

I feel pretty silly writing this letter to you, but hey, it’s Christmas and I really don’t have much to lose. I figure that since vampires and werewolves and demons and magic and all that are real, why can’t something inherently good like you be real too? It would only be fair.

Anyway, it’s been a pretty rough year around here. I’ve done the best I can to make it through it without going completely bonkers and honestly, I think I might deserve a little love here after all that’s happened. A teeny tiny favor wouldn’t be too much to ask, would it? Besides, I’m not asking for me.

I’m asking for Kat.

I know, I know, she’s a vampire. Why should you bother doing anything for a vampire? They kill people right? And she tends to be pretty badass about it. Kind of hard to stick someone like that in the “good” column, isn’t it?

But I’m going to ask you anyway. Not because I’ve been a saint because, oh boy, I haven’t. I just think she deserves a break. She’s had a hard life with almost no one to look out for her. She’s done it herself all her life and I just want to be able to do something for her, even if it comes from a big guy in a red suit.

Of course, I know what she would ask for if I were to actually ask her. And if she believed in Christmas. And you. And the whole gift giving thing.

Anyway, she’d want better weapons and maybe a cool looking coat that protected her a little more from claws and teeth and swords and any other pointy thing that could do her harm. It would be all about what would make her a better hunter.

Me? I don’t think that’s what she needs at all.

What she needs is a vacation.

And that’s exactly what I want to give her. I don’t know how you’d do it, but if there is some way you could get her some time off, I would be eternally grateful. Even if she sits around the house all day doing nothing, it would be better than having her out there fighting for her life. She’s been pushing so hard for so long, I’m scared I’m going to lose her. She’s my only friend. She saved me when she could have left me to die. I owe her.

A little vacation time isn’t too much to ask? It doesn’t even cost anything!

I guess that’s all I want for Christmas. Seeing an actual Christmas tree might be nice. I can’t remember when the last time I saw one was. We don’t exactly celebrate the holidays around here.

Well, I hope this gets to you okay. And that you really exist. That’d be pretty important.

Anyway, Happy Holidays from one of the few people in this world who still wants to believe.

Even a vampire has to face her inner demons…

Kat Redding is the very thing she hunts: a vampire, thirsting for blood, capable of killing any creature unlucky enough to get in her path. The difference is, Kat kills her own kind in order to protect human Purebloods. She’s good at what she does. Good enough to earn the nickname Lady Death—and the enmity of every bloodthirsty being around. But now a vampire Count is intent on merging his House with a werewolf cult to create a force of terrifying power.

Kat can’t allow that to happen. Even if it means taking on a den of weres and a vampire more ruthless than any she’s encountered before. She has the weapons, the skill, and a few allies. But that may not be enough to eliminate the Count before her own dark nature rises to the surface—and costs her whatever is left of her humanity
