really liked it
Read in January, 2010

This was an anthology of 4 authors I'd never read.
The first one was about a guy from New Atlantis who dreamt of his soul mate in a dream search and when he found her, he went to get her. Cute, liked it.
The 4th story was by a different author, but used the same New Atlantis concept and rules...very cool. Loved it.
The second story was a Texas Vampire story...I liked the writing, and the plot, but it was hard to get into at first, for a short story...those seem to be paced much quicker than this one. Once the action got going, though, it was great.
The third story gets 5 stars. It was Lucy Monroe's "Come Moonrise" and I loved it! I would keep the book only for this story. It was better than her full-length books! While this dealt with the same werewolf rules and world as her Scottish historicals, it was a contemporary story set in Montana, where Ty and Frankie have been best friends, but he's a werewolf and she's not. So he never lets her in on the big secret. But she's been in love with him since she was 15. She moved away after he told her there could never be anything but friendship between them, but for her it hurt too much to be near him like that. So she came back home for one last attempt to either seduce him, or make a clean break of it, when they get trapped in an awful snowstorm together. But the twist is that once they mate it's for life, and Frankie still doesn't know that Ty's a werewolf, so she seduces him, and after a long sleepless night of lovin' the next morning Ty tells her what he is, and what they've done but he seems mad at her. He feels she purposely trapped him into the mating...but she never knew those rules! So they fight, he leaves, comes back as a wolf, defends her from the pack leader, and the next morning they set their feelings straight. It's really a great story.
