The Vampire and the Werewolf, A New Orleans Christmas, by Louisa Bacio

A nice novella, I think that more than the two men, the real protagonist is New Orleans, the city where they are living; it’s the city, with its magic, that allows these men to be able to cohabitating with humans and not arising suspicious questions.

At the beginning of the story, Trevor is a drifter, after losing is home due to Katrina hurricane; he is living on the streets, but that is not, unfortunately, not strange. Then one night he cannot avoid to rescue a woman from a rogue vampires’s attack, and that is the time when he meets Lawrence, an ancient vampire who is self-patrolling the streets.

Lawrence helps Trevor, not without a personal interest in the young werewolf, but neither imposing himself on the guy; Trevor is quick in declaring himself straight, and Lawrence, who doesn’t consider gender an element to exclude a possible relationship, understands he has to let the young man go to have a chance for him to come back.

There is a bit of cinderfella feeling in this story, Lawrence is apparently well off and can afford to satisfy every desire of Trevor, and truth be told, they are simple and nice desires like having a Christmas tree, nothing really complicated to realize. Again, in a city that is alive by night more or less like it’s by day, it’s easy to find a place where to buy Christmas lights.

With patience and a little wooing, Lawrence will courtship Trevor right into his bed and heart.
