This must be one of the most fun, interesting, and hot books of intermixing paranormals and supernatural beings around. The idea of building a resort, or a "kinky little getaway" in the words of the instigator, for the use of different species at the same time, is bound to lead to some interesting situations. Cats and wolves changing at the same times? Vampires and dragons trying to get along with everyone? I couldn’t wait to get started.

This is set in the world of the Blood Rose club where several short stories have been set by Julia Talbot. In this case, the original author has created a new resort location and then each author has written a story about a pairing within that world. I thought it was well done and they all merged in a fairly common voice and characters would spill over from one story to the other. The set-up is that a dragon, Daniel, asks Jonny to build an exclusive resort for paranormal creatures, mostly to pro...more

The stories in most anthologies are barely held together by a common thread. Sometimes I wonder what they have in common at all. But this one is different in that all three novellas take place inside the broader construct of a larger story. The premise is pulled from Julia Talbot's Bloodrose series. (Though it will make sense even if you haven't read those books.) A new club, catering to supernaturals is opening... and each short story features characters who are working there.

Jonny, owner of Bloodrose, just received an interesting offer. He has a chance to expand his business, to build an extended stay play club on 600 acres in the Cascade Mountains. There is no time to waste, let the construction begin!

Werewolf construction foreman Chayton just can’t seem to understand his attraction to designer Kenneth. Kenneth is completely annoying and Chayton’s urge to choke him is immense. The problem is, he also desires him, in a dark passionate n...more
I had never read the bloodrose series before this book but it drew me right in. All three authors give great stories and they blend together so well that it makes for a really enjoyable read. I later went back and purchased the first two bloodrose books by julia talbot and while they did clarify a few minor things for me, it wasn't necessary to enjoy this book. Great enjoyable read.
I do like these types of "anthologies". We get to know all the people and see them from different aspects. But then we get to REALLY know a couple, a story at a time. Love the kitties and Faelon is so good for them. And dragons are my favorite "paranormal" or magic creature and Daniel and Zee are a wonderful couple. Love this book and it's going on "My Favorites" shelf. I sure hope this is the start of another great series.

This follows Julia Talbot's Bloodrose series. You don't have to read Bloodrose series first but it's an entertaining series too so I suggest it. This book is a compilation between 3 great authors so I really enjoyed it. There are 3 books in this series so far and another one in the works. The stories are all short, fun and hot hot hot!!
4 stars for the Sean Michael dragon short. The other two were also good but more 3 stars for me.
