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?

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.
