Sophie's Christmas Gargoyle by Katherine Kingston - During the holidays, Sophie has a gift shop that people flock to for interesting gifts. One evening, in a downpour, she notices a woman standing out at the corner. She spies someone standing in an alcove across the street, also watching the woman and she goes out to get her and bring her inside, which earns her the respect of the hooded figure across the street. Eventually he comes inside and introduces himself as Mark Devane. Eleanor is a batt ...more

Seven tales of romance ranging from historical to contemporary to futuristic to supernatural. The pairings are equally wide-ranging and can be any combination. Overall I would give the collection a 3.7 out of 5.

"Sophie's Christmas Gargoyle" by Katherine Kingston

Another wonderful box set from the Naughty Literati. It’s like opening a gift box of gourmet chocolates. You don’t know what you’re going to get, but you know you’re going to love it!

This box set is based on the courage and faith of taking a chance on love. Not always easy, especially if you’ve been burnt before, but well worth the risk to find your own happy ending. Seven erotic stories with an emphasis on romance whether they be set in real life, the paranormal or the furthest reaches of space

I loved this book set. Each book was a short, quick, great read. There was historical M/M, Shifters, reunions, futurist, and much more. I love the collection and all the books worked together even though they were so different from the one before and the after. I have read other sets that Naughty Literati have put together and loved them as well. They do a great job. The sets are a great way to find a new author or series to fall in love with. I highly recommend this and their other box sets. Ea ...more

Seven wonderful stories all wrapped up in one amazing bundle. You get a little bit of everything. What more could a reader ask for?

I enjoyed this group of stories very much because it kept me engaged from beginning to end. Each story made me want to find each authors' individual books and see what other good stuff they have written. Naughty Chances is a must read. I love, love, loved it!!

I, Amber McCarty ( Imaginative Dreams), was given a copy for an honest review.

Naughty Chances is an anthology with a little something for everyone. Fantasy, futuristic, Historical, Holiday, and Shifter romances await you inside this anthology. You have many pairings to choose from as well, MM, MF, and MMF, I know I also found a couple of new to me authors. I love anthologies for that reason. It allows me to have a sample work of an author I would like to try out. There are stories by the following authors, Katherine Kingston, Regina Kammer, Nicole Austin, Alexa Silver, Su ...more

This was a very interesting mix. There were a couple I skipped over since I am not into the M/M nor menage. But the others in this story were pretty good.

Sophie's Christmas Gargoyle:
I actually really enjoyed this one. I am such a Gargoyle fan. THere are some really dark parts, and some really funny parts. I loved the part where Mark gets insulted that everyone assumes shapeshifters are weres, and then Sopihie's response was something I would have said.

The Nightwind's Gamble:

This was awesome collection of short story books with a variety of genes. The stories characters were able to draw you in and you become hook on the stories. Was able to get read some new authors. The plot was what would you do for love and strength to make it happen. Looking for a great collection of story then I recommend these stories

I have an appreciation for anthologies that have a mixed bag of genres that I enjoy, such as this.

However, I struggled with this one. The stories, even for novelettes barely held my attentions. I Know that these are smaller parts of the bigger picture but their just wasn't enough of a plot for me.

This is my confession: I have never read works from these various authors. Based on these shorts (with exception of Katherine Kingston's Christmas Gargoyle) it might stay that way unfortunately.

Great selection of little tantalising teasers!!! With shifters, gargoyles, timeshift and others, you're sure to find something to tickle your tastebuds! There are MM stories included so if they are not for you there are plenty others for your enjoyment.

Fabulous selection from an eclectic collection of well known authors.

This supernatural anthology is a mix of authors with an array of paranormal subjects and characters. The first offering is Sophie's Christmas Gargoyle by Katherine Kingston. I've been fascinated by gargoyle stories since I saw and old TV movie years ago. I enjoyed this short with a different slant, and that Ms Kingston manages to introduce a serious issue without overdoing it.
Sophie brings a young beaten woman out of the rain into her shop. Convincing her that her husband and assailant will nev

Free Romance Book...: Naughty Chances: Free 5 days only! 1 16 Mar 21, 2016 11:02PM  
I’m really very ordinary, you know, so it’s hard to know what to say here. I’m a mom and a grandma. I do laundry and clean house (well, sometimes) and wash dishes like everyone else.

I grew up in New York (the city, that is) and moved to North Carolina some thirty years ago. I discovered books early and buried myself in them as much as possible as a child and a teenager. I still love sinking into a
