Clear rating

Nothing to write home about, that's for sure. There were a couple of good stories in here, but were unfortunate to share space with other not-so-good stories, and so seemed rushed and not long enough. The potential was there, though.

The Good:
Paranormal Romance Blues by Kelley Armstrong (good humor)
Taking Hold by Anya Bast (wanted to read more about Mac and Lily)
How To Date a Superhero Jean Johnson (it promised, but didn't show the "big scene")
Trinity Blue by Eve Silver (again, wanted to read more)
Grace of Small Magics by Ilona Andrews (the absolute best in the bunch)
Night Vision by Maria V. Snyder (interesting premise, too little space)
Pack by Jeaniene Frost (what's not to love about werewolves, especially hunky ones, although the heroine was the most annoying one of the bunch)
The Dream Catcher by Allyson James (definitely not long enough)

The So-So: (with a little more work, and more plot, they might've worked)
John Doe by Anna Windsor
Light Through Fog by Holly Lisle
Once A Demon by Dina James
The Princess and the Peas by Alyssa Day
At Second Bite by Michelle Rowen
In Sheep's Clothing by Meljean Brook

The Bad: (utterly unnecessary, IMO)
The Temptation of Robin Green by Carrie Vaughn
Succubus Seduction by Cheyenne McCray
Daniel by C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp
The Tuesday Enchantress by Mary Jo Putney
Pele's Tears by Catherine Mulvany
When Gargoyles Fly by Lori Devoti
The Lighthouse Keeper and His Wife by Sara Mackenzie
Blood Song by Lynda Hilburn
Blue Crush by Rachel Caine
The Wager by Kinley MacGregor

Bark's Book Nonsense These anthologies are always a mixed bag. I didn't realize they've started doing them for romance. Thanks for the review!

Buggy Thanks for this, I liked how you sorted through all these stories. I've looked at these books but get overwhelmed by their size and always figure half of it would be crap. Looks like I'm right LOL
