Join the vampires of Dark Moon Vale in this holiday adventure filled with treachery, vengeance, and mayhem…

Marquis Silivasi is an Ancient Master Warrior in the arcane house of Jadon: a clan of lethal vampires living in the Rocky Mountains. Known to be harsh, unyielding, and socially inept, he and his iron core yield to only one person—his destiny, Ciopori Demir.

The beautiful, ancient princess can bend Marquis’s will—and melt the vampire’s heart—with nothing more than a crook of her finger. She owns the keys to his soul. Only this year, at Christmas, she has gone too far…

She has meddled in vampire-human affairs.

She has plotted behind Marquis’s back.

And she has disturbed his fragile peace by offering to host a Christmas Eve Gala at the couple’s private estate, which is secluded for a reason…

It is time to teach the female a lesson—Marquis is still the master of his domain!

A serene, picturesque valley surrounded by snowcapped mountains; an internal family squabble, boiling to the surface; and a Christmas Eve feast, hosted by creatures of the night who don’t eat, can’t cook, and rarely socialize with humans…

What could go wrong?

About the author

Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado, where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her master's degree in nonprofit management.Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker's box full of short-stories and novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. Her Dark Fantasy/Gothic Romance novels represent her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her passionate flair for storytelling. Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains with her husband, two children, and "one very crazy cat." She hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers "the most beautiful creature ever created" -- a German shepherd. Writing is her bliss.

Christmas in Virginia…

Where magic happens.

Where angels come to earth to help us find our way.

Where even the future has a home in Christmas.

Where people find each other, even if they didn’t know they were looking.


A Family for Christmas
When Zoe finds Abby, a lost child, all she wanted was to help locate the girl’s parents. But her search embroils her with a chilling crime scene, a handsome stranger, and Percy, a mysterious social worker.

A Life for Christmas

As an undercover narcotics detective, Cade knew about the dark side of humanity. He’d seen the worst of the worst, and thought he was immune to almost everything.

But when he gets a reassignment by the very high-up management team just in time for Christmas, he doesn’t know if he can get the job done. Adjusting to the new job means adjusting to Percy, his new partner, a graying man that Cade isn’t even sure is sane, much less partner material.

A Christmas to Always Remember

Percy is back, and he’s here to help Will and Tessa as they navigate their recovery. But can he help Dahlia, too, before she makes a mistake that costs her both her home and her soul?

A Different Kind of Christmas

Survival is key for those left behind, and Hope is struggling to care for her family while she waits for her husband to return. Will she take the chance to bring her children to safety in a new land? And with everything so different, will there still be a way to have Christmas?

Lucky Christmas

After agreeing to take her on a ride-along in during a shift, police officer Nick is convinced Kylie is crazy. She’s pushy, uncoordinated, and she has managed to get him in all kinds of trouble with his supervisors. But he soon discovers there is more to this stranger than he ever expected.
