Bark's Book Nonsense
I bought this for my local book group. I've always been a fan of werewolf stories and was hoping this book wouldn't bore me to death like so many of the romances I've recently read.

The first story is by Angela Knight. When a female werewolf in heat runs away from an arranged marriage to a brutish alpha wolf, she lands pretty much on top of a police officer who just happens to be a werewolf himself. Imagine the odds of that? She needs a baby in order to maintain her independence from the alpha wo
Like most anthologies, you get hits and misses, and Over the Moon was a mixed bag and no exception. I grabbed this one because it contains the second book in author Sunny's Monere Children of the Moon series, and I was happy to read something by the other three new to me authors who I've heard of previously.

Moon Dance - Angela Knight

This is #7 in the author's Mageverse series, but I had no difficulty following it and didn't feel as though I was missing big chunks of information. I know a grand t

I have been reading a ton more anthologies than I have in the past! I haven’t read a standalone book from any of these authors, but after this I certainly will. I find that when I read anthologies there is usually one or sometimes two stories that stand out. In this book the stand out story was definitely Driftwood by Mary Janice Davidson. Picture me parked in the school parking lot waiting to pick up my kids, and snorting loudly with laughter. Weird Ohio weather made it possible to roll the car ...more
While entertaining, I felt these stories were over before they even began. Sometimes it's surprising how fast these characters fall in love, but if I don't think about it, then it becomes a very enjoyable romance. :) I felt that Sunny, the author of Mona Lisa Three, used her page limit to it's best potential. I felt the novella was really developed. This could be because the story was a sequel and she had room to just continue from the original.

One day, I'll get around to reading this book... ;-)

- Moon Dance by Angela Knight
Lucas Rolling of the Harrisville Police Department had been bitten. Now that he was a Direkind (werewolf) his size and strength showed him to be an alpha type. An alpha was what Elena Livingston needed if she wanted out of the marriage her aging father had just arranged for her.
**** Book 3.5 ….. Really enjoyed Lucas and Elena in this story. A few different approaches to were-lore making this a story that I would like to see more of. The magic of Merlin angle and the
All parts of a series (somewhat), and not bad at all!

Now, let's face it, there hasn't been a story by Angela Knight that I didn't like. This one was alright. Not the best that I've read but not the worst. I wish there'd been a little more to it. The couple came together way too fast, way too easy. Both knew what they wanted in life. The sex scenes and action scenes were well played out. Not bad at all!

The next was Virginia Kantra. While the name strikes me familiar, I can't remember if I ever re
Four novellas by well-known PNR authors:
1. Angela Knight: Moon Dance Revisit the Mageverse world=this story focuses on Direkind on Earth, and we learn more about its history, and of course, enjoy a hot romance.

2. Virginia Kantra: Between the Mountain and the Moon Meet the Sidhe in North America: This is a bit different from her Children of the Sea series, but it continues another short story she wrote. In this, some rather unusual things happen on a hiking trip, and Cait learns some interesting
Four short stories by different authors. All with hot supernatural men-types in them. Yum! I'm only in the second story but I'm already giving the book 4 stars... sexy reading.
OK now that I'm done reading the book...

Story 1:
'Moon Dance' - by Angela Knight
One word: corny. The love scenes were good but the rest of the plot was hazy. I felt like I started in the middle of a story with no background on the context. I won't bother reading anything else by this author.

Story 2:
'Between the Mountain

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.

I've never read anything by Angela Knight before, but I really liked her story MOON DANCE. I was intrigued by her Direwolfs and the world they live in, and plan to look up more of her books.

BETWEEN THE MOUNTAIN AND THE MOON, by Virginia Kantra, was an interesting story, but didn't appeal to me simply because of my preconceived notions of the sidhe world. In this story they seem evil, and that threw me off, but the premise of the story wa
Laura the Highland Hussy
Angela Knight's story was great! I loved it. 5 stars. her werewolves are the best! I'm not sure I understand the rules to her Mageverse, though. The one in Shifter was sci-fi future-y. One was fae and dragons. This was present-day. A female blue-blood of the direwolf Chosen is used by her father to secure power in their council. He plans to marry her off to the cruel stephen, but she runs after he tries to rape her, and she enlists Lucas' help...a Bitten cop. They have great sex, beat the bad gu ...more
Angela Knight's Mageverse novella happens further along in the series than I've read, and so don't quite understand how good werewolves fit into that fictional universe, but Lucas Hollings and Elena Livingston are easy to root for. Their tale is a heroic one in the truest sense of the word.

Virginia Kantra's sequel to her previous novella "Midsummer Night's Magic" continues to dramatize the cruelty and caprice of the Fae, contrasting more powerfully the sacrificial love that triumphs over that c
Half of the stories in this book can be best described as Twilight meets Fifty Shades of Grey, except there was a storyline for the most part. The female characters were difficult to connect to and the males were shown to be stupidly aggressive. Other than that, the book was a fun, lighthearted read. I don't picture myself re-reading it any time soon. I give it three stars because I found characters to be lacking and the storyline could have been developed further.
I only read two of the stories. Moon Dance & Between the Moon and the Mountain. I really liked Moon Dance. I appreciated that Elena was trying to fight the patriarchal system of werewolf hierarchy but I was sad that she didn't want to share rule. Seriously you find super hot dude that doesn't buy into the idea that he's superior to you and then you act like he's not worthy of anything but making you pregnant? GRRR! Other than that Lucas and Elena are fun and crazy sexy together.

After readin
This book has 4 novella's. I wasn't really aware of that when I mooched. I read the first story and it was good, the second as well. I go to the third and just couldn't read it and the forth seemed as bad as the 3rd so I didn't bother to read it either. I wouldn't recommend this book but the first 2 authors stories I did like so I would likely read a novel they wrote.
I enjoy anthologies as they almost always help me discover a previously unknown author whose work impresses me enough to look out for more works him or her. This was the case with "Between the Mountain and the Moon" by Virginia Kantra, a story of overlapping fae/human worlds and what happens when a hiker goes astray on mountain trail. And "Driftwood" by MaryJanice Davidson was pleasant, especially since this is the first piece I've read by her. Angela Knight's werewolf bit was okay - a little ov ...more
Missy Jane
This review is only for the Angela Knight story in this anthology titled Moon Dance. It's part of the Mageverse series, which I'm reading for the second (in some cases third) time. The story of Lucas and Elena is short and hot as needed for an anthology, but that creates a few problems. Once again, Angela Knight has her characters making an emotional plunge into a serious lifelong commitment out of necessity rather than desire. They've known each other less than a full day when it happens, which ...more
Moon dance - Angela Knight - / 5

Between the Mountain & the Moon - /5

Driftwood - Mary Janice Davidson - /5

Mona Lisa Three - Sunny - 4/5
Loved Moon Dance, fun sweet read! Between the Mountain and the Moon was good but a bit confusing, so I know now that I have to read the prequel to that one. Skipped over the MJD story as it looked like I might be confused by her note at the beginning, and stared the Sunny story as she is new. Couldn't get into it. The charachters did not seem real enough to me, not enough explaination of who Mona Lisa is...and the first sex scene...EEEK! TMI for me...a bit too raunchy for my taste...I may try ag ...more

I read the first three stories. Couldn't finish the last "Mona Lisa Three". Wasn't my cup of tea. Because I only managed to read two chapters I can't give any stars for that novella. 0 stars
"Moon Dance" and "Driftwood" were rather good but too short. I like when I have time to get to know the characters. 2.5 stars
"Between the Mountain" was about fairies or some other fay people and again too short and confusing. All these human sacrifices... Why couldn't they sacrifice fay? 1.5 stars

Moon Dance by Angela Knight is the best story in the group and tells about a young werewolf who is trying to escape from her dangerous fiance and the restrictive society she was born into. I couldn't really get into Virgina Kantra's Between the Mountain and the Moon. Driftwood by MaryJanice Davidson takes us back to the Wyndham Werewolves but is pretty sappy. Finally, Sunny's Mona Lisa Three, the other decent story, we learn a little more about Mona Lisa's healing powers.
An interesting little guilty pleasure of an anthology that I read on the plane from Texas. For their compact sizes, each of the stories was sufficently spicy and compact enough to seem complete. While not a keeper, it defintitely works for a introduction or refresher for the paranormal genre. All of the tales revolve around shifters of some sort and 3 out of 4 are about werewolves. As a werewolf-lover, I was not blown away but I was pleased with the stories.
ok so apparently i've never read "real" romance before, because i have never read anything with so much gratuitous sex. it's just not for me. a book needs to have at least SOME plot to keep it going...otherwise it's just reading a porno screenplay. maybe that's the point?? meh. i read this for the mary janice davidson story, and while it was the best of the bunch, it wasn't all that enjoyable. boo.
My rating only goes to Sunny's story.

I must say that I'm really enjoying this series, which I can't believe because it did not sound as any of my usual readings. But this new world of the children of the moon has got my hooked.Although I hope the next book in the series is better. Let's see.

I need some more Story development and not so much "bedroom action". LOL.
I picked this book up because Mary Janice Davidson had a story in it. I recently re-bought the book because I wanted to read the stories again. I know I liked Angela Knight and Sunny well enough that I looked for their books for awhile - but I haven't read anything by them since this book.

I am looking forward to re-reading this.

Angela Knight's story worked best for me; it earned a straight B. MJD's story was next - it earned a B-. Virginia Kantra's earns a C and Sunny, whose entry is not dark fantasy erotic romance but instead dark fantasy erotica, earned a D-. I found it derivative of LKH's Merry Gentry series
N.L. Riviezzo
Still not a fan of short stories but I liked Davidson's contribution as the story seemed more 'fleshed out' than the other stories in the book. It helps that I have read Davidson's Undead series and her other contributions to the world that the series takes place in.
