The Undead In My Bed (Dark Ones #10.6)
In “Shades of Gray” by Katie MacAlister, Noelle is a Guardian: a demon-wrangler, imp-banisher, and all-round secret protector of humans from the Otherworld. While working on the set of a ghost-busting reality show in a haunt ...more
Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister
Time: 0:00 - 2:55
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 ...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.
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
Under the covers, these lovers come alive!
Katie MacAlister conjures supernatural sparks in Shades of Gray
A TV crew is filming a paranormal reality show on the grounds of an imposing old Czech Republic estate. But the electric passion behind the camera is what’s out of this world. When Noelle, a Guardian, meets vampire Grayson, who has roamed for three centuries, she awakens an aching hunger in him that only her touch can relieve. . . .
Molly Harper cooks up laughter and thrills in Undead Suble...more
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.

I thought this was pretty good and creativ ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
