Title: A Wizard for Christmas (The Protectors)
Author: Dorothy McFalls
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 12, 2011
In this novella, Holly desperately wants a perfect Christmas, and she's perfectly willing to make herself miserable getting one. Unfortunately, there are mystical forces at play that threaten more than her holidays...her life is in danger. And the only one who seems to know what's going on is a darkly handsome, but mysterious, wizard who makes her want to add "romance" to this year's Christmas wish list.
Holly is special, she just doesn't know it. A foundling raised without a family, she has always held onto the make believe family she kept in her head, especially around the holidays. When a strange, but very attractive man, starts showing up everywhere she begins to suspect that something is wrong. Too bad for Holly that there's so much more wrong than she every thought. Stalked by a deadly and ancient force out to steal souls, Holly may be the only one that can save the unsuspecting humans.
A very sweet little paranormal romance - however, it was very tame. Lots of romance, no sex. Sometimes that's just the type of story you need around the holidays though. Many times in novella's it's hard to get to know the characters, but I felt very close to Holly by the end of the story - quite a feat for so few pages. The ending left me a little wanting and quite rushed, but at least satisfied that the loose ends were wrapped up. If you looking for a quick Christmas feel-good type of romance, this one may just hit the spot.
