Rock Cove is now home to werewolves and vampires, ruling jointly but unable to intermingle. Werewolf Claire has found herself in deep trouble, the covered in blood and hiding a body kind.

What a fabulous box set, for a fabulous cause The Epilepsy Foundation! These wonderful authors have brought you a feast for your eyes, mind and imagination. Below are reviews of 3 of these stories.

Aaibhe-Shee Queen by Claudy Conn is part of her fabulous Legend series. Though this book is part of a series, it can be read alone. This story is sort of a prequel to the series and gives you insight into the very calm and decisive Queen Aaibhe. Full of passion and romance as she falls in love herself.

This is a great collection of books.

Fated by Fire by Kelly Cozzone was a great book. I loved reading Gareth's journey to find his soul mate. Gareth is the heir to the red dragon clan. Gareth meets Cadence and his dragon goes crazy and wants to make her his own. Although Gareth just found his soul mate there is a force that will try and separate them. Maleon is the leader of the white dragons and wants to use the land, I loved reading Fated by Fire. Kelly Cozzone is an amazing author, I can't wa

This is an awesome box set put together by great authors and it benefits the Epilepsy Foundation! I've not read them all but I have read some and so far I am loving it. Here's what I read so far and I will be adding more to my reviews once I get them read. :)

Fangs of Anarchy by Dakota Fanning. I'm not hugely into the MC but this one...I really loved! They both have been into each other for a long time. However, because they are on opposite sides vampire/werewolf its just not done. Think a twist

1. Fangs of Anarchy by Dakota Cassidy Not Interested

2. Dark Wolf Rising (Heart of the Shifter #1) by Stephanie Rowe *1 Star
Bryn witnessed a murder and is attacked while in witness protection. Thankfully for her, her childhood best friend Cash is part of the wolfpack that comes looking for her and he saves her. I stopped reading when they make it to the safe house. I just couldn't get into how they still know each other so well. Things happen and people change, for Bryn to be so pushy about how

I was so excited to learn that she was writing a paranormal because I'm such a huge fan of her other work....she blew me away with Immortal Envy!! Immortal love and obsession threaten to destroy 2 brothers and the secrets that they keep. Alea is Slade's immortal love and Ramses immortal obsession.

This is a review of Fallen by Nicole Garcia:
This novella is the 2nd Novela in The Club Blood Erotic Short series. This one follows vampire Gia who falls in love with a human named Rhett while dealing with being hunted by hunters. The novella is written with well developed character's & plot. This novella is a steamy sexy read. If you like vampires & action you will love this. This novella has surprising twists & turns. I recommend reading this novella as you will not be disappointed. I was given

Good selection of stories

I liked them all. Most are stand alone. Some are first in series, or part of a series.
Just a few typos and homonym errors.

Created Darkly by Gena D. Lutz
**Book provided by author for an honest review**
Let me break it down for you in a more entertaining way... So Kris is the main character of the book, and she is a neromancer, which is a person who can see ghosts and raise the dead in the form of a vampire. Yes! She can create vampires!! However, Kris has a rebellious streak in her that prevents her from doing her formal duty, and instead she hunts and kills said vampires. Kris's vampire hunting/killing extra curricu

A couple of the books were good, a few so-so, and the rest way to cheesy! 2 of the stories could have been better edited, as it was a disaster! Stephanie Rowe wrote a very good novella, I enjoyed reading it very much!

What a chockful anthology. Unlike other anthologies this is full to bursting of FULL LENGTH books - not just little short stories! My review will get updated as I get through it but here is my reviews so far:

Deceit and Lies by AK Michaels

Brilliantly different read by AK Michaels. Set in a dystopian future rather than a paranormal present day, this book had an entirely different feel. It felt quite dark and gritty but still with the edge of humour you expect.

*So far, this review is only for The Fate of her Dragon by Julia Mills*

Love this series!! I love dragon shifters! The Fate of Her Dragon is about dragon shifter, Drago, who has been trapped for 100 years, and Alicia, who is a witch and his mate. There was a disruption in the black magic holding Drago, so he was able to reach Alicia through their mind link to ask for assistance in escaping his prison. Alicia doesn't know what to think about the voice she keeps hearing in her mind and about her be

I bought this collection so I could read Broken Pieces by Toni Aleo. I loved her book Pieces, which turned out to be one of my favorite paranormal reads, so I was very excited to read a novella from a different character's POV. I loved reading some new scenes and there were some scenes that were repeated. I could've done without most of the repeated scenes, but it was interesting that they were from another POV. After reading Broken Pieces I am more than ready for the second book in the Patchwor ...more

I started reading this books and got side tracked by some of the authors who wrote the stories. Overall the book was excellent! I have several authors whose novels I am reading. There two stories in the book that I struggled with. Moonlight Serenade was a first person story which I managed to finish but felt the story was lacking in depth and boring. The second story was Spark which after several tries I never got past the first few pages. BORING was the story!

Tales of the night

All these stories have love, intrigue and many are filled with comradery. There are some grammatical errors in a few but most are well written. A few have spin offs that I will look into reading.
