“Do You Fear What I Fear” by Heather Graham. The darkness engulfing Salem, Massachusetts grows each day by spreading slowly to other cities and reducing the daylight at the epicenter. Keeper of the Vampires Samantha Mycroft knows the cause is not earthly physics but an Otherworld malevolent. To make this holiday season worse for Sam, her former lover vampire Daniel Riverton is back needing her help.

“The Fright Before Christmas” by Deborah LeBlanc. Keeper of the Five Elementals Rebekah Savay knows she cannot do the rescue of the black hole elemental alone so obtains help including from her one-time rival Vaughn Griffith to save the essence before disappearance leads to pandemic destruction.

“Unholy Night” by Kathleen Pickering. Keeper of the Selkies Katie Sue Montgomery must choose between her present land-bound life and the sea of her beloved Jett the selkie.

“Stalking in a Winter Wonderland” by Beth Ciotta. Newly appointed Keeper of the Witches June “bug” Twist and her ex-lover Basel “Baz” Collins the wizard team up to challenge the evil warlock causing the ever expanding darkness.

With a nod to the Neverending Story (except targeting adults), though there is some repetition these are four enjoyable interconnected romantic urban fantasies.
