Friday Memes: Night Shift by Nalini Singh et al.

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Night Shift, an anthology with stories by Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, Lisa Shearin and Milla Vane. I bought this one for my Kindle a while ago and have been waiting for a gap in my review calendar to fit it in. Here is the description from Amazon:
Four masters of urban fantasy and paranormal romance plunge readers into the dangerous, captivating world unearthed beyond the dark...

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh delivers a smoldering story with Secrets at Midnight, as the scent of Bastien Smith’s elusive lover ignites a possessiveness in him that’s as feral as it is ecstatic. And now that he’s found his mate, he’ll do anything to keep her.

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews’ novella, Magic Steals,when people start going missing, shapeshifting tigress Dali Harimau and jaguar shifter Jim Shrapshire must uncover the truth about the mysterious creatures responsible.

From Milla Vane—a warrior princess must tame The Beast of Blackmoor to earn a place among her people. But she quickly discovers that the beast isn't a monster, but a barbarian warrior who intends to do some taming himself.

It’s seer Makenna Frazier's first day on the job at Supernatural Protection and Investigations, and her first assignment is more than she bargained for when bodyguard duty for a leprechaun prince’s bachelor party goes every which way but right in national bestselling author Lisa Shearin’s Lucky Charms.
Bastien Smith knew he'd been suckered.
Friday 56: 
"I really need to strangle him. Surely, my folks wouldn't notice one less son."


  1. Great excerpts...hope you enjoy this one...mine today has a bit of the paranormal, too:


  2. I like the Beginning and the 56. The 56 made me laugh.

  3. This book might be a good way for me to give paranormal and fantasy stories another try. So far, I haven't been able to get into those genres. Glad you're enjoying the stories.
    My Friday post features FETCHING LOVE.

  4. That tattoo jumped off the page at me. I have seen this around and I think it would be great. Lucky Charms seems like a unique take on the supernatural and I don't think I have read about leprechauns before.

  5. The 56 made me laugh. I think both my girls have said something similar about their brother!

  6. I always enjoy a good urban fantasy - and this looks like a good one! Thanks for sharing!

    Here's mine.

  7. I did that same 56 a few weeks ago. :D I liked the book, I hope you will too.

  8. LOL I can relate to the sibling rivalry.
    Happy weekend!

  9. LOL I have this on my kindle and could kick myself for not having read it yet! I'm going to add it to one of my reading challenges so I'll get to it. It's my kind of reading so not sure why I haven't got to it yet. Probably because I have a ton of books. LOL
    Here's my 56 -
