Review of Fabien: A Christmas tale by Sarah Michelle Lynch

Centuries ago Fabien was thrown from his coven for betraying the queen who had claimed him as hers. Leticia chose him for his sexual prowess and never expected he would fall in love with a pathetic human, something she couldn’t forgive. Cursed to live alone, Fabien harbours a small hope he will one day encounter the reincarnation of his one true love.

One cold Christmas Eve Fabien bites a man who he believes could lead him to the one woman who might break the curse he’s been forced to bear for far too long.

The ancient vampire sets out to woo her in the only way he knows how but unfortunately for Fabien, love proves to be his constant undoing . . .

I only became aware of sarah recently with her amazing book Unbind and now having read this she is fast becoming my favourite authors.
Fabien is described as Vampire Erotica  and the Sex scene between the two  vampires is so hot it sizzles. This book isn't just about sex there's a brilliant start to Fabiens story and speaking to Sarah shes hoping to write more. This is a Christmas novella short and sweet and leaves you begging for more, a bit like Fabien himself.

The prologue is dated 321 years ago so it gives you a little bit of backstory before launching into the present story of Jaimie and Louis. the story is set in York and i happen to know its very picturesque so i could visualize as i read.
The only only fault if you can call it a fault is the cliffhanger ending which paves the way for more Fabien. Again  Sarah has written a five star read.
