Amanda Pillar's Rose Tears! I received is copy from Amanda Pillar and it is an excellent quick read!

The Fae law states a parent may not kill their child and a child my not kill their parent. The Count of Tears, the White Queen’s Executioner, was to make a time-honored announcement. His first born was to be given the “transfer spell,” a spell to entitle all the count had, from power to wealth. And that is when everything went wrong, very wrong. It would seem that his first born was not his treasu

This was a great set filled with so many new to me authors. I love getting these and finding new ones to stalk...I mean follow.
Great collection and well worth the price.

Wow, a heap of stories of all sorts of types, all in one book. Who wouldn't want this terrific set!

There is something here for everyone, witches, werewolves, vampires, demons, dragons, and more!!

Easy to get sucked into this book and race through stories from your favorite author or, check out a new one.

What a bargain, all of this, over 2300 pages, for only $0.99 cents!

Well done team. A brilliant amalgamation!

Just as practically all us can’t resist grabbing a bargain on the clothes we love to wear, just as we love eating certain foods which only can be eaten during a certain period each year; how can you resist getting a collection of the genre we loved to read at a unbelievable sales price.

When you consider the lowest price that you can pay for a KINDLE edition of a book is 99 cents, so you can image what kind of bargain you get purchasing of over 20 never before published paranormal and urban fanta

3.5 stars. If you love PNR and Urban Fantasy this is a set of stories you have to get! Add in some diverse writers and it gets even better. The variety of authors and storylines will keep you riveted for many hours. Some violence and adult themes so 18+. You cannot go wrong with this set. There are stories for everyone included. Some of the stories contain violence and sex, so definitely 18+.

So far I have only read Dangerous Beauty, Sexy Beast by Dariel Raye and Dating 911 by Kathleen Grieve. Bu

Draco - alfa, male, Dragon. He tried to negate his feelings for Lucinda but will it be possible with Her work in his club?
Lucinda knew she loved Dom for a Long Time. Will she manage to become his mate?

The first thing you need to know about this set is that these are in-depth reads – not just short stories. Great deal for the price. I enjoyed the stories and they were varied and fun and scary and funny and lots of paranormal, which I love. My favorite is With This Heart by Red L. Jameson. Since I’ve read her With These Wings series, I was excited to read this story. (And it is a standalone. I just enjoy a book when characters I’ve “met” before drop in for a visit.) WTH was touching, and sweet, ...more

A fantastic set of stories in this collection with something for everyone.
I enjoyed visiting with known authors and discovering others for future stalking.
I can't pick a favourite ....but I do love dragons. I'm sure you'll find your paranormal faves too.
Thoroughly enjoyed this collection and highly recommend it.

I am thrilled with this collection of paranormal romance. With twenty stories to choose from there is something here for everyone.
I was excited to read Amanda Pillar's 'Rose Tears,' and it was the story I dived into first. It's the start of a brand new series from the author and I can't wait to read more of it when it gets published. The sexy, funny and exciting story line had me hooked from beginning to end. I loved Lori and Conrad and I'm hoping they'll pop up again during the series.

This is a great set of stories. I really enjoy these sets as I get to read some of my favorite authors as well as discover new authors.

I liked that the set contains a variety of paranormal characters and there is a lot of diversity in the storylines as well. There are shifters, sirens, ghosts and many more paranormals and the stories range from the sweeter to the darker with menage and new takes on fairytales as well.

Anyone that enjoys paranormal romances should find many stories that appeal to

If you like paranormal romances you will love this collection! There are so many great stories. I have not read all of them yet but can't wait continue reading. This collection has also introduced me to new to me authors I haven't had a chance to read yet. There is a good amount of variety in the stories, so I think there's something for every paranormal lover. With the number of stories in this set, you also can't beat the price. I would recommend.

A great collection of stories all in one book at a great price, nothing better than that. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this collection, ( I volunteered to read What Lies Within Us by Kiki Howell & Gina Kincade, and Lust by Liz Gavin--great stories). Some authors were new to me, such as Catherine Banks (really enjoyed Frozen Soul), others are old favourites, such as Kharma Kelley and Kallysten. Each story is interesting, and entertaining.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
If you are into Dark and paranormal Romance this box set is for you. I like getting to read from the different authors and finding some new ones.
So happy with this collection of books!
So many stories. So little time. A great way to find some authors to try out, some favorites and your choice of short or a little longer read. I found a couple of each.

LASHELL COLLINS, TORCH SONG: This author has captured me with her PNR books, her cop family stories, and anything she writes.

Cimmerian Shade is a collection of a series of novels and novellas by some very dynamic authors. Each one bringing a unique and engaging story to the table. I am currently reading this collection and it is so hard to put down. I find the characters so engaging that I find myself drawn in and before I know it I need to put my tablet to charge because I've been reading for so long.

The dedication to Kathleen King Mayer was beautiful. What a lucky woman to have touched so many lives that she' remembered by them, thru the pages of this book.

First let me state that I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. I always leave an honest review. If I don't like a story, I contact the author first & then with as muc

I. Can't. Even.

1. First Story. Story is fine. Editing is horrible. Extra commas in sentences,,like that.
,Commas in front of beginning paragraphs at least 3 times I recall. Was shocked to see Gina Kinkaid's name on this story with this level of non-editing.

2. Second story is no story! It was one chapter of what appears to be a NON-Paranormal story, in a PARANORMAL BOX SET! One chapter! Not the whole story.

Any stories by Red L. Jameson are an auto-buy for me, so I purchased this box set to read With This Heart, which is part of her With These Wings series. I adored this story! There is so much to love! As a former soldier with PTSD, Aaron has lost all hope. That is, until he has a chance to see a woman he thought he imagined. Adala is a Valkyrie with special skills, who takes warriors to their next life. Her mega crush on Aaron is adorable, as are his efforts to please her. Until he realizes exact ...more

Another great anthology with books by some authors that I already love and some who I've never read before. This set contains 20 new stories and all at a great price. What I always love about these box sets is not just that they're a great price but I get introduced to new authors and stories that I've either not heard of before or who I've just never got around to reading yet.
I really do recommend this box set to you as it's got some great reads in and is at a bargain price. It's a win win in m

Savannah Verte's story was great. I love the world that she created and you easily find yourself losing yourself in it. Here's hoping that there is more to this story because I feel like it will be a fun and interesting series... Here's hoping!

Mychal Daniel's story was great with a sexy dragon and a funny yet strong female character that you enjoy with her stories. I hope there is more with this couple becau
