”Speed Mating” by Jessica Sims – 3 stars or C-
Now or never. She forced the words out of her throat. “I’m going into heat.”
The pencil snapped.

Ligers are supposed to be infertile, but going into ‘heat’ mean Estella is capable of bearing a child. She hopes with the help of her attractive, virile, and tattooed alpha that she can find a mate or good father to her possible baby.

This was a cute, yet predictable quickie story. As it’s only a three chapters, it’s not meant to be anything more than a si
Need something to read at the beach? A light and fun book of novellas to read for summer vacation? This is a follow up anthology to Wild & Steamy.

Speed Mating - Jessica Sims - 4 stars
Speed Mating is the story of a were-liger (lion/tiger hybrid) who, despite the odds, goes into heat and needs a mate (and father of her child) pronto. Her alpha Vic is eager to assist by suggesting possible mates. Each date is a bust and as Estrella gets closer and closer to her time, she becomes desperate. Des
Together again (after Wild & Steamy) Jessica Sims(Jill Myles) & Carolyn Crane shift to their newer series for their steamy shorts while Meljean Brook offers another adventure romance quickie from the Iron Seas.

Speed Mating by Jessica Sims - A Midnight Liasons short - With her first mating heat upon her, liger shifter Estrella needs to find a suitable baby daddy and she needs to find him fast, so off to a dating agency for supernaturals and a round of speed mating... - I liked this one a

Speed Mating by Jessica Sims (3 stars)
Humorous account on a liger's search for a suitable mate. She has a huge crush on her Alpha, Vic, but believes he isn't interested because she is a half-breed.

Conjuring Max by Carolyn Crane (3 stars)
Veronica can conjure anything or anyone. She has really powerful enemies, so she is in hiding. She conjured Max off a conference photo to protect her. The story starts when they are attacked by a group of witches and hitmen. Veronica would be a grea
Full review to come:

MinnChica: I absolutely love and adore all things Jessica Sims/Jill Myles/Jessica Clare. I think I could read the phonebook, if she wrote it. Meljean Brook has created one of the most imaginative and incredible worlds that I’ve ever come across. Mix it in with her sexy writing and I can’t turn down anything of hers either. While I’ve only read a novella or two of Carolyn Crane, I’ve liked what I’ve read so far, and will definitely need

Fire and Frost is the newest collaboration between authors Meljean Brook, Carolyn Crane and Jessica Sims. The novellas are unique and almost impossible to compare, but they do have two things in common: the charming, compelling characters and the way the “hot and cold” theme has been cleverly incorporated into each story.

In Speed Mating by Jessica Sims we meet Estrella, a mixed tiger and lion shifter

I’m starting to really like anthologies, but I’m not liking when the stories in anthologies aren’t similar. Like, if I were to judge this anthology by the first story, I’d expect this would be a paranormal romance/shifter antho. But it’s not. It does have something for everyone which may appeal to some readers, though. The first story is shifters, the second is a contemporary witch story that is set in the ‘80s, and the third story is a fabulous St

Fire & Frost is an anthology featuring stories by three very talented writers: Jessica Sims (also known as Jill Myles), Carolyn Crane and Meljean Brook. The title made me assume that these stories would be filled with steam, and I wasn’t completely wrong, but more than anything these stories were filled with heart

Speed Mating by Jessica Sims
My weakness for sexy Alpha male shapeshifters reared its ugly head... well, actually, it wasn't so ugly. Let me try this again...

This story was packed with all the things that I adore about paranormal shapeshifter romances. A hot Alpha who is determined to do the right thing even though it's kinda killing him on the inside? CHECK. A strong, opinionated female who can hold her own against the men in the pack? CHECK. A heat cycle that comes as a MOST inconvenient time?

Speed Mating - I don't read many shifter books (why is that I wonder?) so this was a fun diversion. I liked the dancing around Estrella and Vic did, each trying to avoid the obvious! Vic is a sexy, growly alpha tiger, yum!
Conjuring Max - I liked Carolyn Crane's first Code of Shadows novel, Mr. Real and this is the story of Alix's aunt Veronica who invented the witchcraft combined with technology that conjures items from pictures into real life. Max and Veronica's story had an ephemeral quality
