"Blazing Bedtime Stories" is a hot, quick three-story read by Harlequin Blaze. Cupid is in trouble! The latest numbers show sex on the upswing, but love is diving down into a recession! If he doesn't get his numbers up Venus will boot him down to a basement office in hell. The website Kissmyasscupid isn't helping matters so he decides to arrange a little love for the 'top three' cupid haters on their site. Two of the stories were very funny and the third a little more romantic.

I do not normally read this kind of "literature," but this book was picked by my book club to "examine the genre," so to speak. It's a little difficult to judge, but I will attempt nevertheless.

This book contained three novellas, each one telling a story of a woman disillusioned in love and finding love. I suppose each novella delivered a required measure of throbbing members and voluptuous bodies; however they definitely lacked in creativity department, especially first two. Authors of "Once U

Once Upon A Bite by Kimberly Raye

This was a great addition to her Love At First Bite series. I really enjoyed the characters and the story (even if it is just cheesy romance!) This definitely made me want to pick up more in her vampire series and I can't wait to see what is going to happen next in Skull Creek! 4 stars

My, What A Big... You Have! by Leslie Kelly

This was my least favorite story in this anthology. There really wasn't enough world building for me, and it kind of just throws you in wh

This is an anthology featuring the following stories:

Once Upon a Bite by Kimberly Raye (5 stars)
This story is about Shay Briggs (a beauty shop owner) and Matt Keller (a werewolf looking for his mate). Matt was bitten by a vampire and has been having trouble ever since. He has been getting hairy even when it is not a full moon. Someone snapped a picture of him running through town with long hair and totally naked. Shay had seen him that very morning with short hair. She is determined to find out

More of a 3.5. (well, it's an anthology)

Lessee… the first short - part of the Love at First Bite series (huh; where's George Hambleton) - has a H who is a werewolf…that got bitten by a vampire. Now… this world has vampires turned by blood exchange; not being bitten, so his suddenly developing vampiric tendencies was puzzling - to the other characters as well. It was…cute.

The second one was pretty interesting - heroine writes children's stories where the heroines are not damsels in distress. She

I love short stories which gives me a chance to discover other authors. Three Valentine theme stories that center around old children tales.

Kimberly Raye's Once Upon a Bite heroine Shay Briggs is at a dead end with her Salon/Spa with a hatred of Valentine's Day. By chance she catches a newspaper article about the new town hottie Matt Keller running bare naked through the street with some great long locks, but she could have swore he had short hair a day ago! Striking out to get a deal with him o

I bought this book a while back, almost as soon at it came out, but I only got to read it a couple of weeks back and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I only recently got into paranormal (thanks to the TV series The Vampire Diaries) and so I've taken to adding one or two para books to each purchase.

The book follows three unrelated women (in 3 separate stories: Once Upon A Bite| My, What A Big...You Have! | Sexily Ever After (Harlequin Blaze)) who have just about given up on love. The book starts with an i

Three stories by three authors woven around a common theme - Cupid is going to make sure that the three women featured on change their mind about love and valentines.
Kimberly Raye takes us back to Skull Creek with the first story. It was ok but not as funny as her other Skull Creek stories.
The middle story by Leslie Kelly was my favorite. I liked that the woman was the sexual aggressor and the numerous references to dark fairy tales.
The third story by Rhonda Nelson was a nic
Ruth Violet
all were excellent stories. loved them all. really love this series. the last one was my fav, though. sexily ever after-rhonda nelson. she always thought she was the ugly duckly of the family. and atlast she found someone who well was a prince i though. that thinks she is beautiful and love her for her. i cried at the end. it was so sweet. i love hea( happily ever after)
In order to follow "Love at first Bite" by Kimberly Raye, I just read Once Upon a Bite.

I've always been an incurable romantic. While I enjoy reading all types of fiction, my favorites, the books that touch my soul, are romance novels. From sexy to thrilling, sweet to humorous, I like them all. But what I really love is writing romance--the hotter the better!

I started my first novel back in high school and have been writing ever since. To date, I've published over thirty novels, one
