Everyone knows that guns are dangerous; they have long been a subject surrounded by controversy. Combine them with sex and you have a subject that is virtually taboo, but smoking hot. This anthology explores the intersection of these two worlds, and the sensual possibilities they inspire.

In Bounty Hunter, William Hunt is hot on the trail of lover-turned-outlaw James Campbe

Two DNFs in this anthology but they didn`t influence the overall rating. To 100% a matter of personal taste.
The third good anthology by Storm Moon Press I`ve read. Seems like this is the publisher where to look for them...

Bounty Hunter by Cornelia Grey - 5 stars

I love it how Cornelia can make me happy without a HEA or HFN....great story!

Changing The Guard by Peter Hansen - DNF

I have enough trouble with the English language I don`t need Terranian tech talk on top of that.

These themed anthologies by Storm Moon Press are not only great for discovering promising new authors, they also cover kick ass kinks. Despite not really being into tentacles (though I wonder how long I can keep insisting on this with a pokerface), the anthology All Wrapped Up offered consistent quality and was an entertaining read on top of that. I’d happily recommend it to tendril amateurs and pros alike. An

I am going to write this again so forgive me if it's all broken record. Anthologies are never my top pick when it comes to reading; I get frustrated because some stories suck and others I wish were just a tad bit longer. This anthology falls under I wish the stories were longer, well at least most of them. This anthology is all about the gun, this deadly and yet sometimes-beautiful weapon. This book will show y

Ugh! I only got to read Cornelia Grey's story before my loan expired and this was ripped from my Kindle (that is what you get for not paying attention!). However, I borrowed this anthology for Cornelia's story so I wasn't too upset.

"Bounty Hunter" was a darker read than I expected, but excellently executed and very well conceived. It is about a complicated relationship between two men in the setting of the wild west. It was both poetic and a bit disturbing, and I think the author hit a great ba

I really love the cover of this anthology, which is dark and sexy without being obscene or cheesy. As for the stories, I've judged each of them below individually, but rated them as a whole anthology. Anthologies like this are tough, since they combine the talents of multiple authors and provide mixed content. This collection's works had good writing, plot, and story telling and interesting characters. It is a strong selection and definitely worth a read, especially if you lik

Overall rating: 4.5 stars. Each of these dark stories showcases some sort of obsession with guns. Some stories connected with me more than others but the writing is generally very strong. The actual depiction of the gun kink is pretty similar in most of these works but a couple of the writers are especially inventive.

The short version: if gun kink is your thing, you'll find stories you enjoy in this collection. If you're indifferent about guns but power play is your thing, you'll probably also find something tasty here. The general standard of writing is high, and the sex scenes are mostly damn hot. Still, if neither guns nor power play rev your engine, this one is probably not for you.

Anthologies are always kind of a mixed bag, even with a theme to focus on -- going for different takes on the same idea mean

If you have a gun kink, the absolute best is the first book of the Dark Soul series, Dark Soul Vol. 1, that's what made me want to try this collection, because I hate guns on principle. There are 6 stories in this anthology, but strangely not one of them is pure contemporary as Dark Soul was. I don't know if it just happened or if it was a choice. The only one in a contemporary setting has a touch of paranormal. It was as if the danger/attraction to the weapons was a bit diluted. Anyway, this is ...more

Overall, this read was great, especially since recently discovering I definitely caught the "guns are sexy" bug.


Bounty Hunter by Cornelia Grey
This was super sexy. Actually, I wished it was a full-length story. I'd read the shit outta this. It was bittersweet. I was almost sad the MCs didn't really end up together... but the sex scene was so hot. Seriously, like if the story continued with these little rendezvouses and then eventually they were together... or not. I am a fan of
Rating for the entire anthology - 3.5 stars

Very solid anthology. There is usually a couple of stinkers in almost every anthology, but surprisingly here there were none. In retrospect, I should have taken a little time between reading all the stories, because one can take only so much of gun play at once. But, overall, I was satisfied.

Bounty Hunter - Cornelia Grey - 3 stars

I'm not too keen on westerns (I occasionally like watching them (movies/TV) but don't like reading them for some reason) and I normally hate flashbacks. But despite that, I found myself really enjoying this story. It was well written, hot, sexy, and the flashbacks were a great teaser, making me very curious about what had happened between these two, to bring them to this present confrontation. The ending was great as well, and left me with a silly grin on my

Slash Readers: I could spend a lot of time talking about all of the stories in here; however, I think that the above descriptions did a good time of giving you an idea about the contents of this anthology. Obviously, if you don't like guns at all or just don't care for them in sexual situations than get out now. For those of you who are alright with such things, stick around.

There are actually two stories in this anthology that stood out to me because they were different from the rest. The other
This anthology deals with the erotic fetish of guns. Plus the guy on the cover is super hot. Love that illustration. My favorites in the anthology were the last three. My Rifle is Human, I found, was the most romantic and less erotic of all the stories, which is what I prefer if I'm reading romance. So nice and sweet. There was a story dealing in a Western type era, which wasn't too bad either. I did enjoy the one with the hunted gun. I like how it was written and it kept me the most interested ...more
All the stories revolve around using gunplay (if you hadn't already picked that up from the title). The first few stories really weren't what I was expecting when I started out reading this and I should have read the blurb before purchasing the anthology (damn me for never doing so when it comes to anthologies). But the last few finally showcased what I was looking forward to reading and it turned the tide and I started to really enjoy the anthology.

I'm going to keep this one short and not review all the stories. I enjoyed the book overall. By looking at the blurb understand that the stories are pretty "raw", if this isn't something you like DON'T READ. I like grittier tales so I enjoyed the stories. The authors all wrote very well. The characters were interesting and each story is different.
