Overall this was a pretty good group of stories. I listened to the audiobook version of this and all 3 narrators did well.

Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister

Time: 0:00 - 2:55

3 stars

I haven't read anything by this author before. This was a nice story but I had a little bit of an issue getting in to it. It would probably have been better if I understood the backgroup of the world the story is in. Noelle is a Guardian (some sort of demon hunter) and meets a Vampire, Gray. Through some sort of connec
I only read Molly Harper's story. I'm familiar with Katie MacAlister and do like some of her stories when I'm in the mood for light paranormal romance. I don't know Jessica Sims. But I really got the book from the library just because I realized I'd missed a Half-Moon Hollow story. This was a very cute story. The prank war was amusing. And it meant that it wasn't an insta-love story, and I always like it better when couples have time to get to know each other before falling for each other. Espec ...more

With these 3 authors what could I do but give it 5 stars? Outstanding ladies, just too, too cool! It alll starts with Katie MacAlister's Shades of Gray! While Helping her friend, the producer of a Ghost Hunting television show, plucky Paranormal Guardian Noelle, meets the owner of the Abby they're filming at, and immediately knows that he is a Moravian Dark One(they don't like the name vampire, go figure) and that she is his Beloved. The one person on the planet that can break his curse and give ...more

Solo lei la novela de Jessica Sims, Out With a Fang.
Esta novela no consiguio atraparme tanto como lo hizo el primer libro, quizas porque le falto mas desarrollo o porque senti que toda la trama avanzaba muy rapido.
Esta bien para pasar el rato pero no esperes ninguna maravilla.

2.5 Estrellas!
Lanie (Lanies Book Thoughts)
"Out With a Fang" was a quick novella that left me wanting more. I've read a few of the novellas and the first book in this series, all were pretty good and this one was no exception!

I really liked Ruby as our heroine because she was lil an feisty with a big heart and a steel backbone, which is very admirable. Even though her physical appearance wasn't intimidating or threatening she didn't let people push her around, she pretty much pulsed confidence due to her dual nature. Rubys story focuses
3.5 stars - 3.5 stars - Undead in My Bed was a cute little, at times humorous, series sampler that gave me a chance to get a little taste of Sims' new to me supernatural dating series while paying return visits to Harper's Halfmoon Hollows and MacAllister's long running Dark Ones.

In the order that I read them :

Undead Sublet - My favorite was Molly Harper's short - when overworked chef Tess has a psychotic episode involving leafy vegetables, she takes a Leave and gets away from it all to Halfmoon

Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister

Love this author. Her wit never fails to tickle me, causing inappropriate bursts of laughter when reading in public. So happy to see Noelle finally find her Dark One. She has had such a tough go of it being rejected by her first one. I loved Gray, he was so full of himself, serious and determine to save Noelle from himself. They are a great match, I hope we see them again in a future book. I would love to know more about Gray's father, hopefully he won't be stuc

It's always difficult to rate a book that has multiple authors.

Katie MacAlister - Shades of Gray: I am a serial, addicted reader of KM's stuff. Loved that Noelle finally got her Dark One! I'm a huge fan of all of the characters and it was heartbreaking to see Noelle get pushed on to each new novel without her story being resolved. Can't be upset about it though, the muse is there when the muse is there. One hilarious scene with the 'ghost whisperer' had me reading it over and over, giggling like

I finally finished! I don't think it's ever taken me this long to read a book by any of these authors.

The book is actually a 3 1/2 for me. Usually I round up in that case but I just couldn't give it 4 stars.

Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister - I usually really like Katie's Dark Ones books. I think I may have liked this one more but it was just too short. With the small amount of space the story was reduced to the repetitive Dark Ones formula: Dark One finds Beloved, resists Beloved, has sex with

If you are already a fan of one of the authors, and you want to read all the books in a series by that author, then go ahead. Otherwise, don't use this collection to try out an author for the first time. I enjoyed the short story by Molly Harper, whose Half Moon Hollow books I read with great pleasure. Based on Ms. MacAlister's contribution / narrator, no more of her works for me. There was a third author's short story; it left no lasting impression.

Still reading, but I can review the first 2 stories...

Shades of Gray: I think you really need to be a follower of the series to enjoy this one. What the heck is "vitiated"? Hero kept banging on about it, and at no point was it ever explained. All in all I found little to like here, and it was a big effort to finish this story as I found the heroine just downright annoying. I had high hopes that Miles might turn out to be more than a cardboard cut-out, and instead be some kind of uber-badguy, but

I bought this collection of three stories because author, Molley Harper (a fave), was featured. While I listened to all three books, Molly's book was the best.

My only issue with Molly's book is that Amanda Ronconi, Molly's normal reader, was not featured. This was confusing to me as Amanda has read all of Molly's Jane Jameson novels. Why did we stray from what works? Especially since this newest book was set in Halfmoon Hollow as well.

I was new to author Jessica Sims and enjoyed her novel. It i

I've now listened to Molly Harper's story and read Jessica Sims' story in this anthology. Both good. When/if I get around to reading Katie MacAlister's Dark Ones series I'll check it out again from the library.

I would like to go to Half Moon Hollow and hang out with Mollly Harper's vampires and shape shifters. They seem like fun and they are funny!

Loved Molly Harper's novella, it was so funny and I loved Tess & Sam, they fit in perfectly with the Half-moon Hollow gang!

I was looking for something quick & fun, and this fit the bill perfectly. I've read the Katie MacAlister story and the Molly Harper, so those are the ones I'm reviewing so far.

Katie MacAlister story, set in Dark Ones world: Cute, fun, perfect before bed story.

Molly Harper story, set in Half Moon Hollow: I really like all things set in this world, so an obvious win for me. I enjoyed this story a lot and wanted more time with the characters at the end. I hope that she continues to do shorts &a

Well, this was not all I hoped for, but thankful for Molly Harpers short story. Fun and entertaining as always.
As for Katie MacAlister's story, it was repetitive. I think her historical romance stories are more fun to read than the Dark Ones' stories. Maybe I read one too many of them.
The third and last story really didn't interest me enough so I would finish it. It was too easy to guess what was to come and therefor easy to put away for something else.

All in all, the four stars goes to Molly

Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister
2 stars
Obviously the title is a rift of the popular erotic novel 'Fifty Shades of Gray'. Use a little imagination already. Gray was annoying and grouchy while Noelle was overly chipper and talked too damn much. The conversations were strange and mostly stupid. I'm it was a short story or I would have been irritated if I wasted my time to read a full-length novel about these characters.

The Undead in my Bed (2012) – Shades of Gray (Katie MacAlister), Undead Sublet (Molly Harper), Out with a Fang (Jessica Sims)
Once again here is an anthology with stories that I don’t think are all deserving of the same rating. The only author I actually really knew was Katie MacAlister, and while I thought she would be the standout for me it turns out I was wrong.
While I did like all of the stories included here the first two seemed to start out a bit slow and kind of choppy to me. They both
I would probably actually give this book 3 1/2 stars. The Molly Harper story was the best of the three. Molly is just wonderful. Everything she writes is hilarious and unique. The first story, by Katie MacAlister was just all right for me. It was a slow starting story and the writing was kindof juvenile. The heroine just seemed too childish to me. And overall the writing was pretty cheesy. The final story, by Jessica Sims was pretty good, but not as good as Molly Harper. I am left wanting more M ...more

This review is based only on the Jessica Sims novella included, 4 stars. I didn't read the other two, simply because I was unfamiliar with those series and don't like to start in the middle.

Ruby is a were-jaguar. She falls for a human guy, Michael, in college, something totally against the rules of the Alliance she belongs to. To protect him, she breaks it off but still loves him. Four years later she still longs for him but feels it hopeless. Out of loneliness she tries the paranormal dating ag

Three stories by three different authors who offered up a great paranormal mix.
Rated together I give a four star but each had it's own appeal.
I hate to say but Molly Harper's story was my favorite. We have a mix of a guardian and a dark one who in the end was a very cute story, then we have a chef on the verge of a break down who needs to deal with a vampire living in the basement of her rented getaway. These two had me reeling with laughter. It was cute, entertaining with a bit of underlying ro

Lots of fun. I enjoyed all three stories very much. I picked it for the Katie MacAlister story,"Shades of Gray", which was very amusing, but I loved the other two stories by Molly Harper and Jessica Sims also. These two authors are new to me, but I will definitely check out what other stories they have written now.

All three stories were sexy, funny and entertaining. I had such a good time reading this book, well, I listened to it. I was trying to keep my mind occupied at work. listening to books keeps me awake more than listening to music. I laughed out loud a few times, got a few strange looks while siting at my desk.

Despite her love for novels, she didn't think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software.
