STEPHANIE PERKINS has always worked with books—first as a bookseller, then as a librarian, and now as a novelist. She's the author of the international bestsellers Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, as well as Isla and the Happily Ever After. My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is her first anthology. Stephanie and her husband live in the mountains of North Carolina.
So Santa Claus doesn't come alone.
Meet the bringer of punishments to naughty children. They call him by many names: Black Peter, Krampus, Pelznickel, Knecht Ruprecht, Hanstrapp, Black Pit, and more. But they all refer to the same person, the enforcer of St. Nicholas. A simple chimney sweep who was bullied and mistreated by others becomes the most feared being of winter.
But he has a problem of his own when the devil and his demon muscle in on Krampus' territory. Now the punisher of the Feast of St. Nicholas must now become the protector of those same children. And he is going to need help from on high to face the devil.
Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.
