3.5 stars - tasty PNR bites

This was a nice little collection of Paranormal romance quickies. For some reason even though there were six stories here, the stories didn't seem anywhere as short as the ones released earlier this year as Midnight Cravings: Racing the Moon\Mate of the Wolf\Captured\Dreamcatcher\Mahina's Storm (Silhouette Nocturne). And even though the hook-ups are still quick, there was enough meat to most of the stories I actually found several that I really liked among these previo

Multi-author anthology of six of the Silhouette Nocturne Bites available at eHarlequin. Paranormal reads: vampires and dhampirs and shifters [oh my!:]

Several of the stories are related to series' although they seem to work well enough as stand-alones. I purchased this for the Knights of White story by Lisa Renee Jones and was pleased with it - it was a good contribution to the series.

Return of the beast, By Lisa Renee Jones - 5 STARS
Mortal enemy, immortal lover, By Olivia Gates - 5 STARS
Claws of the lynx, By Linda O. Johnston - 2 STARS
Wilderness, By Barbara J. Hancock - 3 STARS
Really enjoyed Wilderness by Barbara Hancock. The Nocturne Bites line is a general hit or miss (mostly the latter) but Barbara Hancock is one of the consistent winners in the line.

Nice collection of supernatural romance stories. Felt some of them were a bit rushed, but enjoyed nevertheless.

A group of novellas about supernatural romance--or should I say animal attraction?

This book almost got 2 stars from me, but two stories in there were good enough to tip it to 3. The problem? The authors forgot they were short stories maybe? So with a short story you don't have a ton of time for plot and it's usually all about the sex when it comes to short erotic stories. And we're mostly okay with that. However, these authors (except those who penned the two pretty good stories) try to shove a HUGE plot into these short stories. Things happen so fast and there is so much bac ...more

I tried, I really did... and I think I read most of this. But it definitely is a "romance" book, with supernatural twists, but still seems too... formulaic... for me to continue. I've got too many other books that are calling to me, even though I think I only have like 2 vignettes to read.

An interesting mix...but

I hoped to have found new (to me) authors and I guess I did, at least one. The writing in several was good - just not story lines which I found interesting. This group of stories just did not suit me.
