Well, I read several of these and don't feel the need to continue. The ones I read were decent and I skimmed or DNF'd a few. If you like paranormal romance, this is totally worth it for $0.99. A lot of the stories seemed to be part of other series and short stories generally have never done much for me. It just seems like not much happens - and that seems to be mainly the case here. Overall, some formulaic PNR... little bit of setting, something happens, and a steamy scene wraps things up. I jus

This review is only for The Werewolf's Christmas Wish (Nocturne Falls, #4.6) by Kristen Painter, however, the anthology contains many interesting stories from many great authors.
This novella was originally published in Hex the Halls anthology and it is featuring Bridget and Sam's story. Bridget finally got her story. She shows up here and there a bit and a bit more in the second book, where we also meet Sam. It is a short story but not rushed. They are both familiar and lovely characters and now

These box sets are always worth it because they have a lot for the value. I always find a lot of good books for the nominal price tag. It is a definite savings for the books you will be enjoying.
I have read the authors I love, plus found some new ones with this box set. I have only listed the ones I found to be worth a 2nd or 3rd read. That doesn’t mean these aren’t all great books, for they are, but the ones I am listing, really found me re-reading them multiple times.

There are a lot of stories in this anthology, I only read a few of them, so those are the only ones I reviewed.

1. Hunted Holiday (Bureau of Paranormal Investigation #1). **2 Stars
This started out very cute. A tough slayer who is in love with her boss but fights it because of their situation. And a vampire who knows his subordinate is his mate but fights it because he doesn't know what she wants. It was a cute will they or won't they, then they got together and it was just kinda lame.

I enjoyed this book, some stories admittedly weren't quite up to par but others were excellent. My favourite was Kristin Painters story 'A werewolf's Christmas wish'! Great story!

Fantastic group of short stories!

Such a great group of short stories! I found so many new authors to follow. You don't want to miss out on these sexy alphas.

I love PNRs, especially when they're set around the holidays. This terrific box set is a real treat and an absolute bargain.

Paranormal romance is one of my favourite genres, it's top of my list along with Sci-Fi and Fantasy romance and I'm completely addicted to Christmas stories. I read them all year round and have hundreds of them, but I'm always eager to add some more to my collection, especially when they're

There are lots of great stories in this set. I highly recommend it for any fan of paranormal romance. You get a great mix of all types of paranormals finding love and hope over the holidays.

Midnight Magic by Ann Gimpel is a great read. It has lots of action and surprises as Cassie and Jeremy work to unravel the mystery of who is destroying her mother and jeopardizing her life too. . The author always has unique characters and I recommend you check out her other books too.

These box sets are always good value for money even if there is only one book you enjoy.
I have read the authors I love plus a few more hoping to find one or two new authors.
A good fun laugh out loud read. Two fated mates lusting after each other from afar because they are boss and employee. The friend Mimi stole the story.
Such a sad story, my heart broke for Jack and Maura.
A fun read. Satan wants so

I know I might be the odd one out but about 70% of these stories I've already read or own as stand alones. So, I wasnt exactly happy that this was put together with old stories mostly. Dont get me wrong its a great book for those who are new to the authors and a great buy and plus you know Christmas tales. So, this wont be a 5 star for me but it wont be disliked either. I cant be too upset with the price .99. I regret buying but I do recommend if you've not read these authors before. Honestly, I ...more

Review For Hunted Holiday

Hunted Holiday is a short romance about a slayer and a vampire, Dani and Cornell. Mandy Roth always writes these long-overdue love stories well; they're some of my favorites. Hunted Holiday is a quick, enjoyable read. I'm working my way through the rest of this collection, so I'll update as I finish them.

Fantasies all wrapped up in a set!

I love reading a large collection of books to find new series & writers. The were exciting & imaginative. I am going to Amazon right after this review to buy other stories by these excellent creators of fantasy/paranormal romance.

So many goodies...

Loved this anthology! There were so many wonderful stories and some awesome new authors that I got introduced to. Every kind of fabulous holiday story was gathered in one spot and it's well worth the time to read them all!

There were some great reads in here. Authors that I will definitely read again. There were also some really bad books. Worth it for the few gems though I think.

I was ecstatic to get to read or in some cases to re-read MMR and other favourite authors holiday books.
This box set is definitely value for money, with new and old favourites to lift the spirits and warm the room.
I've finished all the stories, but won't be doing a review on them all, just on a few standouts to me.
Hunted Holiday - short read about boss and employee that makes you laugh, roll your eyes and fan your face. Loved all the characters in this read.

Hunted holiday by Mandy Roth
Fun read. Full of humor and hotness. Can a slayer and a vampire find true love? Lol I will never tell. your going to have to read for yourself. But its fun and the antic of two girls decorating for Christmas had me laughing. Who knew hellhounds could be do loveable

Another winner of a Boxed Set. Some great reads here--30 from favorite and maybe some new authors--for under a dollar. How can you pass this up? I couldn't. Here are just a few of the stories included by some of my favorite authors.
Everlastingly by Michelle Pillow:
Maura has to find something solve a mystery, but she doesn't know what. To tell much about the story would reveal the mystery and you need to read it. This is a very short novella about Everlasting Love. We all want it but few find

With all of these great authors, what’s not to enjoy with a special Christmas box set!!! I love all of these authors and I'm not sure how I missed most of these stories from them.

Hunted Holiday by Mandy Roth was a really quirky and adorable story. Dani is a slayer with the bah-humbugs and the hots for her boss. It is a fast paced without dragging the story out. Dani’s boss Cornell is a vampire and she does everything in her power to annoy and irk him. I love how Dani is sassy and sarcastic all

This set has so many amazing authors in it. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Hunted Holiday - Mandy M Roth - This was a cute fast holiday read. Dani hates the holidays, they have not been good for her for a long time. Cornell is her boss and the one that makes her blood roar. But he is totally off limits, right???
These two are fighting the inevitable and everyone but them seems to know it. Will they ever wake up and see what is right in front of them? Pretty sure my favorite line was "I'm going

This review is for Kissed by Temptation by Deanna Chase. I will update the review as I read the others in the set. First off, I really like the light-hearted way Ms. Chase writes, and this short story was not an exception. The main character Mati was very likable, and I found the romance between her and her boyfriend Vaughn to be hot! As with any short story, it’s harder to get a feel for all of the main characters, so I was impressed at how well the author managed to do that with the exception ...more

Hunted Holiday: A Vampire Romance (Kindle Edition)
I have read this story a few years back and did'n't mind reading it again I love Mandy's books they always leave you wanting more no matter if it's a full length novel or a short read to fill those rainy afternoons . This was a short story however it was quiet good. Slayer meets vampire kind of thing but not your Buffy kind of story. Dani Malloye is a demon slayer and she has the hot's and very bad way for her boss who she thinks hates her. Corne
