Read from November 27 to December 01, 2011

No human paranormal pairings here and the four authors offer a is a nice mix of heroes and heroines with fangs, fur and fins(!) finding the one who satisfies their steamiest cravings. And despite the mix, one thing all of the stories had in common was that none of the stories felt too short.

Hidden by Sharon Ashwood - Light Fae Lila must be merciless, whether it be by tricking , conjoling or coercing she needs Rafe's werewolf pack to sign away the mineral right to Pack lands - The perceptive Rafe is quick to read between the lines and see through Lila's cold facade and I loved that the were is the one to come up with the tricksy solution to everyones' problem (I am guessing that this is set in another corner of Ashwood's Dark Forgotten from a brief mention of a side character from that series)- 3 stars.

One Soul To Share by Lori Devoti - A vampire is looking for a guide and a mermaid who is headed the same way seems to be just what he needs, but she has her own reasons for taking him to see the Sea Hag -a vampire and a mermaid - so original, I loved this one - 4.5 stars

Cruel Enchantment by Michele Hauf - When a faerie meets her Intended under the worst circumstances, she wonders how fate could be so cruel since the only thing that can save them is the thing that will condemn him to addiction - Another unique pairing - vamp and faery - though fae blood being addictive to vamps has been done before on a lesser scale, I liked the story on the whole but in the middle the pair's relationship takes a turn for the unhealthy and the hero has some definite Mr Hyde moments - 3 stars

Enemy Embrace by Patti O'Shea - this is set in the same world as several other of O'Shea's demon/vampire shorts - When the tables turn on a vampire hunter persuing vengence, she is saved by a rogue demon hunter who is also hunting the same prey - I liked the demon struggling against his instincts which scream for him to claim his mate, this made for some steamy tension building, and I liked how O'Shea makes the transition in their relationship so that when the I love you's finally come they feel natural. I really liked it - 4 stars
