A Very Gothic Christmas by Christine Feehan and Melanie George

by Donna Huber

Last night I went to my library's Victorian Christmas Ghost Stories program. Telling ghost stories during the winter holidays was a popular pasttime but the stories weren't exactly Christmasy. So instead of sharing those ghosts stories with you, I found a Gothic Christmas book that has two gothic novellas for those wanting something a bit spooky this holiday season.

A Very Gothic Christmas by Christine Feehan and Melanie George

December 2020; Pocket Books; ebook (432 pages)

In Christine Feehan’s After the Music, Jessica Fitzpatrick is terrified by mysterious threats. Determined to keep her twin wards safe, she flees to the remote mansion of their reclusive, widowed father. With Christmas approaching, the spark between him and Jessica might light the future, but there are those whose evil machinations may plunge the family into darkness—unless a Christmas miracle occurs.

In Melanie George’s Lady of the Locket, the echoes of history and romance lure Rachel Hudson to Glengarren, the Scottish castle where her parents met many Christmases ago. But it is the portrait of fierce Highlander Duncan MacGregor that sparks a deep desire inside her. On a storm-tossed night, as lightning cracks across the castle’s turrets, Rachel finds herself face-to-face with MacGregor himself, astride a mighty stallion. Now, stepping into Rachel’s time—and her heart—the warrior from the past is pursued by an ancient, evil enemy.
