The Kiss Me in the Dark Anthology was exactly what I expect from anthologies - teases from authors I know and love and an intro to authors I haven't really met yet. I LOVED it!

1. Bad Saint by Monica James - I've never read from this author, but from this sample, I can see why she's a huge hit with readers. It's about a young woman who was on her honeymoon when she is suddenly and brutally abducted. She both hates and is drawn to her temporary captor, Saint. Obviously these two are going to fall
When reading meets charity, all proceeds for this go to “NO KID HUNGRY” and “TLC FOR KIDS”.
You also get to dip your feet into darkness so if you’re still on the fence about the genre you can get a taste 😉
And if you’re already sold to the dark world you get to meet some old time friends 🖤 or you can make new one 🖤 beware some of them bite 😍

Zeth motherfucking Mayfair is BACK! I love this anti-hero with such ferocity, all of the dangerous ruthlessness that surrounds this man, that even tidbits enthrall me. I would've adored a glimpse into Zeth and Sloane following the ending of Chaos & Ruin, but stepping back into Zeth's intriguing mind is always a delight no matter what.

This is a fantastic charity anthology that contains many of my favourite Authors in the Dark Romance genre. If you are a reader that is unsure whether romance that teeters or fully plants itself in the dark category is for you, then this is a good book for you to pick up.

Kiss Me in the Dark, provides 3 chapters from one of each of the Authors Dark Romance stories, giving you enough to wet your appetite and see if their story is something you can get on board with. For those readers that love th

This was a good anthology with short chapters of some of my favorite reads. Dark dangerous men like Creed and Zeth. All the stories in this book were well written with no errors in grammar or spelling.

What a sweet little mix of dark and delicious teasers, select chapters, and bonus content of published and soon-to-be released novels by some of our favorite queens of romance.
Although I haven't read all of the books, I can definitely recommend UNCONVENTIONAL by Aleatha Romig, THIS IS WAR BY K Webster, ENTHRALLED by Giana Darling, DEVIOUS LIES by Parker S. Huntington, and BAD SAINT by Monica James.

Sandra Shipman ~ Two Book Pushers

Bad Saint is the first book in the All the Pretty Things Trilogy by one of my favorite authors, Monica James! When she announced she was writing a dark romance I was so excited. I can’t read them every day but I do crave them. The synopsis explains so much so I will make this fast.

Willow was happy for the first time in a long time. Her career was showing her the world as a model. She was married to the man of her dreams after a whirlwind courtship. She was on the top of the world a

Let me start by saying I am a member of Monica James’ arc team which is why I’m here right now.

With that being said....

Perfect teaser for people wanting a taste

I either own or have read via Kindle unlimited almost every book in this collection. I purchased this for the bonus content. I wash there had been more though. That being said, it still was nice to be reminded why these authors are some of my favorites. I hope that it brings in new fans so that more authors can Continue to write all the dark words.

This anthology was an excellent way to preview authors you haven't read yet. I saw a few familiar names on the list for this book and when the description mentioned an exclusive scene from This is War by K Webster I 1 clicked it faster than you can say "DAMN!"

Most of the anthologies I’ve read previously have been a collection of short stories submitted by various authors, whereas this one was a collection of excerpts from the books of authors, which I enjoyed because I know there is more to each

Bad Saint - Monica James

This was such a sexy, thrilling, dark ride and I was hooked within the first few pages and could not put it down. The book has so much going on, it’s intense and totally captivating. I was an addict to James’ words.

In Fury Lies Mischeif - Amo Jones

This was an amazing read that captured my mind from the very first chapter. The push and pull between Killian and Sass was electric and the anticipation for what was to come crackled from the pages. Midnight Mayhem is a world yo

Reviewing Blood and Roses chapter one, plus extra bonus.

I adore Zeth Mayfair and so this was a trip down memory lane for me as I have read this series twice and I will never tire of it. This gorgeous man is the pinnacle of BBF for me, so reading that first chapter again makes me what to drool over Zeth again for the whole series. Callie has given us an extra bonus as a treat and it was a joy to read. Here we see Zeth slightly out of his comfort zone and with no less than a woman taking that cont

Aleatha Romig - Unconventional bonus scene. Victor the stalker pov into the life of Erika.

Giana Darling - Enthralled bonus scene. We get a new chapter about the hero Alexander pov.

K Webster- This Is War, Baby bonus scene. We finally get Gabe the villains pov with Baylee.

Willow Winters- A Kiss To Tell. We get a never before seen chapter. We get a glimpse of Chloe thoughts about Sebastian.

It’s always exciting getting new content on characters we have read before. Always a bonus reading new authors

If you want to get into dark romance books, but don´t know where begin... this is perfect.

For beginners there are glimpses of the work of these authors, just enough for you to want to know more about their stories. And for those of us on the dark side, there is extra footage from the stories we're already familiar with.

I think it is a good initiative to attract new curious readers about this genre, which may be stigmatized, but once you enter the dark side, you can no longer leave.

Let’s be honest! I was really excited to reading Eli’s Transition, and let me tell you Amo didn’t disappoint. I became even more obsessed with The Elite Kings & Midnight Mayhem!!! 😍😍😍 OMG! I just can wait for more books of those two worlds that have me in love. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
And also Cora Reilly with Fragile Longing 🥰. I was looking forward to reading it since I read Twisted Pride. I’m in love with all of her mafia books. ♥️

I only read the prologue and first chapter of Fragile Longing by Cora Reilly and oh my god I don’t think I can wait a whole week to finally get my hands on this book.
I really feel sad for Sofia she’s gonna go through a lot, no one have to be the consolation prize,the second best.
I do hope Danilo will treat her well and maybe end up loving her in the end.

Unconventional - Aleatha Romig - 4 stars
I’ve already read Unconventional, but the prologue was new. I think I would have liked it more had I not already known how the story ends. This is a great introduction to the story, and if I hadn’t already read it, I would definitely want to continue.

This is such an incredible and enticing collection from such an outstanding group of writers. Every glorious snippet from this book only makes you want to dive in deeper to each story.
