Publisher’s Description: Jake Stone comes to an island with a magical spring to have his only wish in life fulfilled: to be mortal again. As a vampire, he’s tired of the lonely and unfulfilling life he’s been living. Then he meets Claire Culver, a woman whose trip to the island is her last hope. She wishes for a miracle to cure her of a terminal illness.

Will her wish be granted, or will this be her last Christmas?

Where does this novella fit into the Scanguards timeline?
It takes place several years before Samson’s story kicks off the Scanguards Vampires series in San Francisco with Samson’s Lovely Mortal. Jake is first mentioned in Quinn’s Undying Rose. Well-loved Scanguards characters—Gabriel, Zane, and Amaury—will make an appearance in this short novella.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (in other words, SPOILERS!)

I am a big fan of Tina Folsom’s Scangards Vampires.  I have been with them since first publishing and I look forward to every single release.  This novella has recently been published, but it technically comes before book #1.  You don’t have to read this novella first to start the series, so don’t worry about that.  The character that is involved in this novella is now the “vampire in charge” of the New IMG_0945York office of Scangards.  It begins with Jake wanting to be done with life.  He’s tired and has no purpose.  Until he meets Claire.  She captures him immediately and she is so full of life even though she’s nearing death.

This novella shows how Jake and Claire are recruited to Scangards Vampires.  I hope to see more of them in future books.
