Description: Bring these four authors together and it's sure to ignite a spark...
Angela Knight pairs a vampire warrior and his seductive captor in a battle against demonic predators.
Nalini Singh returns to the world of her Psy-Changeling series as a woman in lethal danger finds an unlikely protector-and lover.
Virginia Kantra continues the haunting tales of the Children of the Sea in her story of a wounded soldier rescued by an enigmatic young woman.
Meljean Brook launches a bold new steampunk series about a woman who strikes a provocative-and terrifying-bargain for freedom.
My Thoughts: These were four very entertaining stories. I am a big fan of Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series and love stories about the Changelings the most. Emmett and Ria had a great romance. It was my favorite story. I also really liked Meljean Brook's steampunk romance and look forward to The Iron General in October. I had never read anything by Virginia Kantra before but will be looking for more books by her. I enjoyed the Angela Knight story but do prefer her contemporary books to this more fantasy offering.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants a taste of some really great authors.
Favorite Quote: (from Whisper of Sin by Nalini Singh)
"How are you with chaos?" he asked.Challenges: RYOB Reading Challenge, Paranormal Reading Challenge
"I love it." Her response was instinctive. "It gives me more to organize."
Lucas laughed. "What about constant interruptions, having to rejig meetings on a moment's notice, and a boss who might be impossible to track down at times?"
"If it needs to be done, I'll get it done," she said, meeting those brilliant green eyes. "But I'll be honest -- even though I probably shouldn't be. I'm likely to get a little short-tempered now and then."
