I was told that This book was published in a very limited run and then the publisher folded. After reading it I can see why. What a waste of time!

Now, I like PNR just as much as the next gal so I picked it up looking for some new authors. I thought that the concept of it being written to imitate in some ways the TV show Desperate Housewives set in a town that's full of the supernatural could be cute! Boy...was I wrong. It was AWFUL! Every story has the same basic plot. Older woman who hasn't had

What to say, what to say. Overall I liked this book but only because it was so ridiculous I couldn't stop laughing. It was a soap opera on crack and after a couple of minutes I went back for another fix after I put it aside to stop reading. I liked the characters I guess overall to a degree but there were too many to keep track of at any given time in all the different stories. I understand that will happen with 20 writers but it jumped from here, to there, to oh look a toad..... Never did fully ...more

Not bad, not great. Though the first 3 stories are in that first category. After that the stories got a lot better and held together, with a few exceptions. I'm glad I hung in. I liked the concept of a TV series-like set of short stories that were related to on another, though by different authors.

This book was so confusing...but in a good way. It's a literary soap opera. Each chapter usually followed a new set of characters living in the enchanted town and eventually overlapped to make sense toward the end. It was fun trying to keep up with everyone's different stories.

Most "episodes" rated NC-17

You you haven't read this book, goodluck. This book was published very limitedly and then the publisher folded. I was lucky enough to read when I worked at a book store. I thought it was light cute and funny and because of this book I discovered 2 or 3 authors that i'm still reading now.

I found this book so hard to get into. The characters are not likeable at all and it is a tired storyline that has been written time and time again and in a much better way. I've not read anything else of Mary Jo Putney's and I doubt now I ever will. Harsh but fair I think.

This is a book of short stories, meant to be like a Desperate Housewives tv show in book form, except set in a town that's full of the super natural, like werewolves, vampires, witches, dragons, etc., etc. I bought it from the library book sale for my vampire collection. I didn't quite know that all the stories are written by romance writers.

It was AWFUL. Every story had the same basic plot. Older woman who hasn't had sex or good sex in a long time, some new person comes along with amazing sex,

This one was hard for me to read. I knew it was a compilation but there was just too many cooks in the kitchen on this one. I really only liked about half of the stories and the ones I liked ended way to quickly. There were characters that I was interested in reading about but very little time was devoted to any one character. Overall it took a lot of effort on my part to finish this book due to the choppy nature.

Meh. The intro pretty much turned me off of this. Read the set up poem, legend, which was OK, but only a couple of pages into the first act this didn't seem like anything I want to waste my time on. Sending it off to a new home.

Ditched it. Too far out of my genre pref. I chose it based on the author, rather than the story line.

These authors make Stephenie Meyer look like Toni Morrison. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Only wish there was a way to get those minutes of my life back
