Dead and Loving It
-There's No Such Thing as Werewolves (originally published in Lighthearted Lust: Three Not So Serious Tales anthology)
-A Fiend in Need
The queen of comic, erotic, other-species romance brings her best setups and hottest sex scenes to this four-novella party. Three of them feature the bad Wyndha ...more
We shall find no fiend in hell can match the fury of a disappointed woman.
A Fiend in Need is a short story of George, the Fiend, and Antonia, a werewolf. Antonia has a very handy ability: she can see into the future. Her premonitions lead her to Betsy’s (sorry… Jessica’s) house, where she meets George, whose real name is Garrett, and they instantly fall in love with each other. So Antonia stays and moves in the mansion.
Very short, very quick, very rough ...more
Furthmore, the stories are all crappily similar. They all have the same theme of a main character forcing themselves (romantically in the first 3, friendship in the last) on another person. In each story the person being forced upon has no personality besides smartass. Not just your ordinary smartass, but incredibl ...more
I was over the moon when I spotted this book at the ABC Store's (English book store) bargain department! I have been meaning to read this book for ages, but I never got the time to actually buy it, oh and not to mention that I also had so many other books I wanted!
I will write a short review per book, well, short-ish. :P
But before I do that, I want to say that I liked that each, well with the exception of the last story, ...more
ETA: Oh, and a word of warning to those that hate such; the story "Monster Love" is a trite sample of the "kidnapped and raped repeatedly, she can't help but fall in love with him..." school of 'romance'. I'd avoid it, personally.
2. If he did suddenly regain his sight he would not be able to identify colors.
3. I can't believe that a werewolf would fall in love with someone just because they smelled like peaches.
4. All the girls in this book talkl like fifeteen year old girls. Yes Duck fuck is actually said.
5. rape is not cool even if a vampire does it.
6. I have no clue how it feels to be trapped in an exercise machine and no one says yeek.
7. why does everyone ...more
Do not recommend. Unless you're into that kind of thing. Then g ...more
The first story in this anthology is Santa Claws and it centers on Alec who is the pack alpha of Europe or something. Anyway, Alec is walking down a busy street when all of a sudden he gets a whiff of peaches and must find out from where that smell is coming. What he finds is a woman dressed in a ...more
In the first story, "Santa Claus," Alec (who is passing through town) meets Giselle while she is a bell ringer in a Santa suit. He convinces her to have lunch when her shift is over. She ends up with food poisoning so he takes her to a hotel t ...more
Santa Claws FAVOURITE
This is an enjoyable stand-alone werewolf romance story. (4.5/5)
(Crosses over with the Wydham Werewolves series). I hated this story, it ruined the anthology for me; Richard is a vampire who believes he has been stood up by his dream woman Janet - who he doesn't realise is a werewolf. When she is called away on urgent pack business Richard takes it personally and decides to kidnap Janet, tie her to a bed and sexually ...more
Alec Kilcurt is the most powerful werewolf in Europe. There are some 300,000 werewolves in the pack. He's in Boston, and gets attracted to a particular human woman.
He ends up taking her back to his room and they have a whole lot of (very graphic) sex. What is really cool is what the ending of the story turns out to be. This is an ultra-sexy, very neat story.
The second story is Monster Love.
Richard Will is a vampire and likes it. Janet Lupo is a werewolf. She is ve ...more
Santa Claws (4/5 stars)
This was a story cute story about a werewolf who finds true love in a woman dressed in a Santa suit. This was a stand alone stor ...more
I've never read the Wyndham werewolf books, but for me the these shorts all kind of bled together in the same general tone. I can't say for sure it's not MEANT to read like that, since 3 of them are Wyndham werewolf shorts, and one is a werewolf short in the Undead universe (a series that I have read previously but don't really recall all that well.)
Cons: kind of lower grade write, nothing flashy or overtly impressive
Pros: I mean, sexy werewolves? I don't pick up ...more
The Wyndham Werewolves and Queen Betsy series meet in this story. Antonia is a werewolf who doesn't change into a wolf, but as a consolation prize, she gets to have headaches and see the future. We first met her when she sent Derik to save the world in Derik's Bane. Antonia travels to Minneapolis because a vision told her she'd get something she wants if she went and helped out Betsy. There, she joins up with Betsy, Sinclair, Jessica, etc. And, oddly, falls in love with the fien ...more

I don’t really have a lot to say about this, so this is probably going to be a small review, but I did want to talk about this book.
Dead and Loving It is a collection of four short stories by MaryJanice Davidson, some from the Wyndham Werewolves series, and one of them from the Undead series. Now, I read the first three stories a while ago, and enjoyed all of them and read them rather quickly. My favorite was probably Santa Claws, a story in which a werewolf f ...more
1. Santa Claws
Alec is a werewolf and he meets Giselle, who is a regular human. Alec is intrigued by Giselle right away, which makes Giselle a bit wary of him. There are quite a few funny moments in this book. Despite the shortness of it, it is a good story.
2. Monster Love
Richard (a vampire) meets Janet (a werewolf) and they sch ...more
In this collection of four novellas, worlds collide when MaryJanice Davidson?s beloved Wyndham werewolves cross paths with vampires ruled by Undead Queen Betsy Taylor.
Davidson's fans will delight in this set of four fast-paced, lusty novellas featuring her Wyndham werewolves and vampires under the rule of Betsy Taylor, Queen of the Undead. "Santa Claws" is a tale of Europe's most powerful werewolf falling in love with a plump, bell-ringing Santa on a Boston street corner. "Monst
