Genre: Romance, Paranormal
Format: eBook
Series: The Unexpected Trilogy


Livvie and Darius, along with six teenagers from the Remus pack, take a trip back to New Hampshire to visit Quintessa for Christmas.

An Unexpected Christmas is filled with nostalgic memories from Livvie's past, a bit of mischief from Livvie's brother and the Remus pack's teenagers, some passion to keep things warm, and a surprise announcement at the end.

It's a pretty quick read, and I read it in about an hour; making it perfect for reading in waiting rooms, during a lunch break, or after a long day at work when you just need to put up your feet for a while and escape to another place. The plot is easy enough to follow if you haven't read the first book in "The Unexpected Trilogy," An Unexpected Bonding, but I think that reading the first book will make it a bit easier to keep track of the characters. The content is mature; it's a little naughty with some passion to keep things cozy.

I enjoyed it and I think it is a perfect story to snuggle up with on a cold winter night with a mug of hot chocolate. 

About Lilly Rayman

First and foremost I am a wife and mother. I was born in England where I had a dream at the age of 14. That dream was to chase cattle on horseback across the Australian Outback. In , I had the opportunity to follow that dream, and found myself travelling to Australia on an Outback working holiday; and I've chased cattle; on horse back; across the Outback. I met my soul mate, whilst on my working holiday, married him, and we have two beautiful daughters, and I'm still loving life in Australia.

I love to read, much to my husbands dismay sometimes when I have my head metaphorically buried in the pages of a book (I mean, how can that be literal since the dawn of e-books?)!

I love fantasy, I used to take myself away from my shitty world of bullies and appear in some wonderful land of dragons and magic! Pern was my all time favourite hide out world, God bless Anne and Todd MacCaffery.

When in immersed in my fantasy worlds, I used to re-write the plots in my head, starring myself as some great, sword drawn character who wouldn't give two hoots what the local bully thought! That eventuated in my actually writing down my own stories. I've even been brave and posted my Dragon Queen stories which are the product of my childhood.

I hope you can find enjoyment in my hide away from reality!
