I'm so excited to be part of this collection of four brand new NA Paranormal Romance novellas. My novella is called Seduction's Kiss, and it's the prequel to Owen's story! :)

Midnight Kiss is available now!

Want more of Owen and Daisy's story? The first book in their new series is releasing in 2015. Lure

I'm marking this as read because the only story I wanted to read in it was After Midnight. I finished After Midnight and loved it. Every time I read one of Sarra's paranormal books, I am impressed with how well she writes. The world of Peachville Demons is so intricate, and yet she never gets any of her facts confused and the timelines work perfectly together. I really hope she turns AlLison's story into a series. We'll see what happens.

4 stars - A fun collection of swoon-worthy paranormal stories that I definitely enjoyed!

Midnight Kiss is a collection of four stories. All are pretty quick reads, and they all have paranormal aspects and plots that are intriguing. The stories all stand on their own, but there are some fun links throughout the collection, such as locations, that I enjoyed spotting. I'm going to break this down by story now, since (as I said) they are all their own, solid novella.

A great collection of stories which each include a young, strong woman coming into her heritage. Each is different, but each make their transition in New Orlean during Halloween on the night of a full moon. Well done!
by Sarra Cannon
Imagine that you have to live your life always looking over your shoulder afraid that the Order of Shadows will find you and take you away. Well, this is Allison’s life. Hiding out in New Orleans, all she wants to do is blend in and be normal, well, as normal as a witch can get. She has a crush on a hot guy, John Pierce, but he rarely gives her the time of day. Her life gets a bit hectic though when the potion she desperately needs each month to keep her ‘hidden’ li

AFTER MIDNIGHT by Sarra Cannon
This story sucked me right in from page one which a lot of books can't do that normally it's a slow start but not with this one. John to me he came off as a self-centered butthole, "when you've been around as long as I have, it's easy to tell when a girl has the hots for you," he said. Now he was the one teasing." But as the story grew so didn't John's sides and eventually I did fall in love with his a**. In his own way he is concerned and caring, "he cupped my chee

I received this enovella from the author in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

Also note, I am only reviewing Seduction's Kiss at this time.

Oh wow. Wow. Wow. WOW! I just devoured Alyssa Rose Ivy's Seduction's Kiss in a heartbeat it seems! And it was freaking incredible! I ADORE her Crescent and Empire Chronicles as they were the first of the few Paranormal NA titles that I found and after reading the Empire Chronicles, I was sooo ready for Owen to get towa

This was too much fun! Light hearted, not overly serious, and just a fun fast paced read. I read all 4 books, one after the other, and finished the book in 2 days (It would have been less if my children hadn’t insisted on me doing things for them like taking them to soccer and dance, cooking, washing their clothes, etc. :) )

I had read (and loved) books by Juliana Haygart and Alyssa Rose Ivy in the past but Sarra Cannon and Jennifer Snyder were new to me authors (I had heard of them and I have pr

Loved this collection paranormal novellas what a great group of authors to put into one book. I loved that each story had the Midnight Cauldron in New Orleans on Halloween incorporated to tie them together. I definitely downloaded the books tied to each story. Each story was uniquely amazing and addicting! I definitely recommend this book as a must read this October to get you in the Halloween mood.

The story I loved the most was Seductions Kiss by Alyssa Rose Ivy. Ever since I read The Crescent

I really enjoyed this set of four stories that take place on Halloween in New Orleans. I bought this book becuase my favorite indie author, Sarra Cannon, is a part of it and found that I have found three more author's I am interested in reading their other work.

I found two of them to be really maturely written ad two of them to be more geared toward a younger crowd, but all four had compelling and interesting characters. I really can't wait to explore the worlds of Juliana Haygert, Juliana Hayg

Firstly, take a look at the author names. Yep. That's right, 4 great authors in one anthology.

So, do the stories live up to expectations? Well, in a word, YES!

Now, I've already read and enjoyed the Peachville series from Sarra Cannon (well worth the read by the way) so this novella was an unexpected treat! Short, sassy and suspenseful - need I say more? Frankly I would have got the book just for that, so the others were an added bonus.

And, I'm pleased to say that I didnt think that there was a

Big thanks to Alyssa for an ARC copy for review.

With Halloween right around the corner, Midnight Kiss was just the right kind of book I was looking for. There are four short stories, After Midnight by Sarra Cannon, The Midnight Test by Juliana Haygert, Seduction's Kiss by Alyssa Rose Ivy, and Kiss of Awakening by Jennifer Snyder. These stories had the perfect amount of fantasy/paranormal, mystery,and a dark yet sexy tone.

Another thing I enjoyed was the setting of New Orleans, which was were each

I can’t get enough of New Orleans and paranormal romance, especially if there is a full moon and Halloween is howling.
The combo is deliciously divine with an edge of dangerous, a tasty treat and lets face it… there really is no better way to spend a day!
All the characters are unique and the adventures they go on are wild and crazy!
All the stories were great to read and I am seriously hoping a few of them get turned into series!!

Thank you to Sarra Cannon for the ARC copy which I received in excha

**A Shadow Demon's Story by Sarra Cannon left me wanting more of John & Allison and what will come of their future. Allison is going to Tulane under a false identity in order to hide from The Order. She tries living under the radar and being invisible, only has a few friends, a PT job and a major crush on the quiet, loner yet beautiful John Pierce. In order for her to remain hidden from The Order she has to use a potion each month (made by Kalisa) Problem is, it's Halloween and she's suppose ...more
I’m not a big fan of paranormal romance, but this boxset was a freebie and it’s October, so why not?

After Midnight by Sarra Cannon. 4 stars and my favourite of the set.

Tested by Juliana Haygert. 3 stars. I enjoyed this, but found the ending a bit abrupt.

The last two were DNFs for me.

I have bought this book long time ago. Well, on the day it was released. I have no idea why I haven’t review it yet. But the time has come.

AFTER MIDNIGHT by Sarra Cannon

This novelette tells us story of Becca, who in her previous real life was called Allison Moore and in the past she was a popular, beautiful and cheerful cheerleader. And now she is always living on edge, looking over her shoulder to ensure no one from Order of Shadow will find her. To make sure it doesn't happen she has to make

A great collection of Paranormal romances that will leave you begging for more! Each of these books were excellent reads and leaves you wanting more. All of these books are set on Halloween in New Orleans. This alone had me intrigued! Each story meets at a familiar point- the Midnight Cauldron. It was so very interesting to see how each author viewed the Midnight Cauldron and the witch that ran it. Some people viewed the shop and it's witch as a savings grace, while other's viewed her/shop as a ...more

After Midnight- Sara Cannon
I'm familiar with the background of this story. I've read the Peachville High Demons series, so I had heard of the main character.

This is a short story set on Halloween night. We get a glimpse into this world and those in it. Allison or 'Becca', is on the run from The Order, a coven of witches dead set against those that rebelled against them. After obtaining a vial that will keep her location hidden from The Order, only to loose it, she has until midnight exactly to g

A fan follows an author wherever she goes, especially if she writes a holiday edition – spinoff of one of your favorite series! Sarra Cannon gifted me a copy for an honest review and of course I accepted. She is a talented author whose career I have followed since the beginning of her Peachville Demon Series!

In this anthology Sarra was able to capture the same world and feel of the Peachville High Demons series and it thrilled me to no end. Becca
