This was just an ok box set. We go from Young Adult, to Romance, to Erotic. It was an interesting weird mix of stories. I will note that a few of the books in this box set can be picked up for free at your eBook realtor.
The only two books that I liked and feel are worth reading are Captive’s Kiss by Sharon Kay & Dragon’s Chase by Mina Carter. Dragon’s Chase is published on it’s own for purchase, but Captive’s Kiss is currently only available in Gathering Darkness Box Set.

Close Liasons by Anna Zaires & Dima Zales:

Close Liasons was splendidly good! I loved the storyline and the characters. For a novella, I felt it was perfectly spaced out and I didn't feel like it was actually a novella. The story is sexy with one delicious looking alien and the woman that captures this particular Krinar's heart. It had the right amount of sexual tension that had me perfectly on edge.

There's a great selection of stories in this anthology and introduce you to authors you may not have read before. It took me forever to read the whole book, it's the first time I've ever read a whole anthology but I enjoyed it. It's great value at 99p

Overall with the whole book I'd say 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 as it's such a great buy!

Below was my favourites from the book.

I have only had the chance to read Shifted Undercover, so far, but am looking forward to reading the rest of this anthology.

Shifted Undercover by C.E. Black

Shifted Undercover was exactly what I was expecting from C.E. Black; excellent execution, well-developed characters, fast-paced and engaging story, detailed description, and enough steam in the sex scenes to curl the pages!

Gathering Darkness is a collection of amazing paranormal stories by some authors I know and by others that I need to know. I think it's a great way to be introduced to new authors. You never know you might find a favorite author.

I love the cover of Gathering Darkness I think it's visually striking which appealed to me.

All the books are unique and stand out in their own way from Dragons to shifting bears to secrets agents on a plane each story will captivate the reader and

Lots of sizzling chemistry and hot and steamy sex spices up the darkness as these strong, edgy and compelling characters leave readers breathless with anticipation and fulfilled fantasies.

Good stories, some are part of a series

These stories are HOT! A couple were a little much for me, but the story lines were good. I found a couple I'm going to go look up the rest of their series right away. Most definitely 18+

I really like that these stories are of a darker nature than you usually find. Unfortunately that doesn't make them better than a lot of the other stuff you can find out there. Was worth a shot though.

I have to confess, that I bought it because of one author I'm stalking. But I gave a chance to the other stories, too. And Iwasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed them. Each has something to give and like. It would be shifter, alien or other Para ability. It made me nervious to 'see" of what's waiting next for the characters in each story. It made roll my eyes. Caused me stress. (The good kind. Lol)It made me chuckle. Like I said each story is different with what is offered.

Close Liasons by Anna Zaires - 3.5 stars:

Aliens have taken over the planet! Well not entirely they are merely coexisting with the humans. However, being human there is the ideology that they are intruders and so of course a resistance is formed. That's where Mia comes in when she catches the eye of Korum and things just spiral out of control.

I thought Mia was a little too wishy washy in her attitude towards Korum. Ok so this huge alien race that the humans barely know anyt

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I originally got this from one of the authors, Sharon Kay, because she knows how much I adore her books and stories. And it was no different this time around! Captive's Kiss was yet another amazing story of hers, in the world I have come to know and live that started with the Solstii Series. Tanner and Saige are an incredible couple, brought together in the heat of the Solstice, a rabid Mating time for any denizen of her

Gathering Darkness Box Set: Review for Captive’s Kiss by Sharon Kay Review for Captive’s Kiss by Sharon Kay
Watcher/Lash demon, Tanner, meets, female Lash demon, Saige, while out at Club Hades during the summer solstice; little did he know she would be involved in the case he was investigating.
Sharon Kay did a great job creating this story. It was fast paced, mysterious, and exciting.
Captive’s Kiss is a wonderful addition to the Watcher’s Kiss Series.

Sharon Kay is one of my favorite authors and this novella was a great addition to the Watcher’s Kiss series. Tanner is a watcher and meets Saige during the solstice. He is unable to forget her, but believes she is working with the enemy. However, he soon finds out this is not the case and she is in need of help. This is a great story of a rescue, action and of course romance. Tanner and Saige are great characters and were developed really well for a short story. As with Sharon Kay’s other books, ...more

Review of Captive's Kiss by Sharon Kay

So overall I enjoyed all these stories whether it was authors I'd read books from before or new to me authors, but this one was my favorite!

Tanner is a watcher and it just happens to be solstice tinge and for those who have read books by Sharon Kay before solstice time means lots and lots of hot sex!

Saige is in a bad place looking for a way out and when she finds Tanner she knows she can trust him to help.

Captives Kiss

5 Stars

I love all these books in this series!! I would love to have a new book in this series monthly!!

I love all the Warriors. I can't wait for the next full length novel so we can see more of all the men and woman that we have come to love.

I loved the connection with Tanner and Saige. Tanner didn't try to fight his instincts towards Saige. He went with what he thought and it turned out good. It could have been bad if he didn't.

I was gifted this anthology for an honest review.
This anthology is a great collection of stories by several talented authors. Each story is full length and different than the last. There are several different shifter stories (wolf, gorilla, dragon, bear), vampire, demons, and scientists. Gathering Darkness is a wonderful, eclectic collection of paranormal romance stories. I especially enjoyed Shifted Undercover by CE Black, Dragon's Chase by Mina Carter and Capturing Her Bear by Charlie Daye.
