Countdown to Christmas - #8

Krampus and the Crone: A SciFi Alien Warrior Romance (Horned Holidays)

Published to Amazon on December 3, 2020

Author Honey Phillips

Can a horned alien warrior and an isolated woman grant two children their holiday wish for a family?

Jaelle is lonely. Ostracized by the village, like her mother and grandmother before her, she poses as an old witch in order to eke out a meager living selling herbal remedies to people who don't want to admit they need her help. When children start disappearing from the village, she is determined to find an answer to the riddle. She doesn't expect to find a massive, horned alien - one who sees through all her disguises.

Since crash-landing on K.R.S Three, Commander Krampusarian D'Marchandar spends his time working on his ship and secretly observing the other inhabitants. During his explorations, he discovers a strange, beautiful female. It is an impossible attraction - but when he sees her treatment at the hands of the other villagers, he decides she is his to protect.

A sweet and steamy holiday tale featuring two precocious orphans, a determined heroine, an unexpected hero, and, of course, a very happy ending! (Intended for mature audiences.)

Official published review:

Return to your roots

Such a fantastic take on an old tale! I love that Krampus is the star of this story, he is both good and bad, brutal and refined, and above all he is loved and loves in return. The kids are sweet and added an innocent element to the story, and Joelle is so gentle and kind to all who enter her orbit. This book is the perfect holiday read, and got me right in the mood of the season. I enjoyed this book and would love to read more holiday stories by this author.

5 stars


Honey wrote and illustrated her first book at the tender age of 5. Her writing has improved since then. Her drawing skills, unfortunately, have not. She loves writing, reading, traveling, cooking, and drinking champagne - not necessarily in that order. Her steamy science fiction stories focus on hot alien warriors and the Earth women they can't resist. From abductions to invasions, the ride might be rough, but the end always satisfies.
