Every Christmas, an ancient demon stalks and murders fairies. Until this killer is apprehended, each fairy is assigned a demon protector. Decimus volunteers to be Bitsy's protector. He's lusted after the Christmas fairy for years. Three days and three nights with Bitsy allows him to satisfy that lust.
Except that three days is not enough, and Bitsy won't grant him more, not unless he says, "I love you." That's a big problem. Demons don't love. Christmas fairies won't accept less. And evil never takes a holiday.
Cynthia Sax has written a short but intriguing story for the holiday.
Bitsy is a Christmas fairy, in danger from an unknown ancient evil. Every Christmas, this evil kills fairies, and demons are sent to protect them. Decimus volunteers to protect Bitsy, because he can’t get enough of being with her. But Bitsy will only stay with him longer than three days if he tells her he loves her, and demons don’t do love. At least that is what he keeps telling himself. Can Decimus protect Bitsy from the powerful evil demon determined to take her life? Will Bitsy get what she wants from her demon protector?
I enjoyed the interaction between Bitsy and her demon. This is a wonderful short and hot story, and I would love to read more from this world.
Bitsy is determined to have Decimus for her own. She is sassy, and has an inner strength that shows when it really counts. And she is sure that her demon loves her, no matter what he says.
Decimus is a demon, and hot and sexy to Bitsy in either form. But he says demons don’t love. He is strong and loyal, and he wants more with Bitsy than three days every year. But he knows that it is impossible.
This is a story with some sweet surprises, mixed with some very hot demon on fairy sex, and a happy ever after worth waiting for. If you want a quick enjoying interlude, this is for you.
