My Thoughts: This book contains four novellas in the Guild Hunter universe. Each of them is a romance. In the first, a Hunter romances the vampire who is her prey. This one is mostly teasing and flirting as the two pretend to dislike each other but end up working together to "rescue" a kidnapped vampire. This one also features a particularly scary and cruel angel.
In the second story the romance is between Sara who is in line to be the leader of the Guild and Deacon who is the Guild's bogeyman and a talented weapons maker. They fall in love while trying to find the hunter who is killing innocent vampires.
In the third story the romance is between a vampire who was horribly abused and an angel that someone wants to kill. This angel still has her humanity despite having a very awesome power that lets her defend her territory and her people.
The final story is a romance between two angels. Jessamy has been the teacher for the babies in the refuge for over 2000 years. She keeps herself there because she was born with a deformed wing and can't fly. Galen is a warrior who has come to the refuge to be Rafael's weapons master. He is tough and smart and strong and love-starved. Jessamy knows love and has a wealth of friends but she has never taken a lover or taken a risk for love.
All of the stories were entertaining. All of them threw light on different parts of the Guild Hunter universe. Fans of novellas who can't get enough of the Guild Hunter universe are the best audience for these stories.
Janvier had the habit of annoying angels enough to end up on the Guild's hunt list. But that wasn't the worst part—right when Ashwini almost had him, when she could all but smell the collar, he's somehow make up with whoever it was he'd offended. Last time, she'd nearly shot him on principle.This one comes from my TBR mountain. You can buy your copy here.
