#1: "Captain of Nara's Heart" -Laurann Dohner (5*)
I love Dohner. She's fabulous. And this is my favorite story in this anthology. It's marvelously written, very hawt, with a good and seemingly legit backstory/world. Great, great, great.
#2: "Dragon Heat" -Mel Teshco (2.5*)
Uhm...I have no attachment to this story. The best I can muster is indifference. It certainly wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything to write home about, either. ...more
This book's descriptions come at you at high speed. Bradbury doesn't choose among his figures of speech. He chooses all.
He can lay back, as in the opening sentence: "The seller of lightning rods arrived just ahead of the storm." He can lay back, but he usually doesn't. For example:
At dawn, a juggernaut of thunder wheeled over t ...more

I got this anthology for LD's story... I LOVED IT but like always, was left wanting more! :o( It was a really interesting story and a new "story world." Now I want more of it. I wonder if she'll make separate books related to this story. I would TOTALLY LOVE THAT!
As for the other stories in the anthology... Well, I got this anthology mainly for LD's story so I don't know the other authors. I'm not in a hurry to read their stories a ...more
I loved The Possession when I read it years ago and when I heard she was finally writing a sequel to The Possession with John Calder the illustrious owner of Hotel Atlantis Resort I couldnt wait to read.
Shelli Rogers is just 6 months from getting her Ph.D in Anthropology and due to her family falling on hard times since her addict father died she takes a job stripping. But she is the worst stripper. She is a ...more
Captain of Nara’s Heart by Laurann Dohner:
The plot is really simple that I wish there are more complications are included. The sex scenes are many, but the others are just fast forwarded that I feel I was left out in the story. The way Nara falls in love seems quite fast for me, but the Captain's possession of her (not just physically ...more
I have chosen to review this book as a whole and individually on each story; I admit I was skeptical because this book covers so many genres; however every last author delivered. What I was skeptical about was just damn fun to read this is a book that will satisfy your craving for all types of romance be BDSM or Paranormal or the simple sweet romance. It was really a fun read.

Captain of Nara’s Heart
By Laurann Dohner is all about being in the wrong place at the right time. I thought the premise to be incredibly sexy and well done. It didn’t beat me over the head with sex scene after sex scene. After the first incredible an ...more

Highland Tryst- Enjoyed this story. Great characters.
Tattoo Witch- Interesting story. Nice ending.

This story is the reason I started reading this book. And I loved every minute. I would have preferred a longer story though.

Highland Tryst - Eliza Knight - 3 stars
I'm a big Laurann Dohner fan. I think everything she touches is gold and this is no exception.
Jaid Black knows how to tug at the heart strings.
The others were new to me and I'm going to check out their other works!
