The Dark Ones – Genesis is a human who understands that her duty and loyalties are to serve the immortals, but she never imagined that would mean mating with Ethan, the Vampire King. Due to his past Ethan is not looking for a mate but his need to protect her turns into so much more.

Bad Penny - Penny is a tattoo artist, a great friend, a free spirit and is not about to be tamed by anyone while Bodie had a crush on Penny when they were in high school and the frog has turned into a sexy prince. Bo

I love Rachel Van Dyken and K.A. Linde, so I knew I needed this one. Each story brings a lot of emotion in the best way. The awesome part about the Top Shelf collections is that they contain full length books for an affordable price! It is the perfect way to read some new-to-you authors, while reading stories you've been meaning to from authors you love! I will definitely be collecting these beauties in hardback, because these covers are beautiful. ...more

One of my favorite things about these Top Shelf Collections is that it is a collection of some of the best romance books out there compiled together. I have read the majority of the stories before but it gives me a chance to go back and reread them again. They feel fresh and new and I like that. In this case, I had read three of the four stories but at the time didn't know the importance of reviews so I was able to reread them in order do more than a star ranking.

A Kiss For You contains three standalone novels and a duet, with each being an addictive quick read. Although each story was addictive, I never quite fell in love with any of them to the degree I had hoped to. They were certainly fun, but they did not have the spark that pushed me into loving them.

The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken was a paranormal romance filled with great ideas. As much as I adored the idea, as intrigued as I was to see how everything came together, there wasn’t enough worldbui

What a collection this is. There’s a bit for everyone. Paranormal, Comedy, Grit and Contemporary Romance. A veritable delight to feast on!

THE DARK ONES by Rachel Van Dyken
Well this wasn’t quite what I was expecting and ended up being quite surprising. I loved the depth of the world Rachel Van Dyken created with these characters, combining several myths into one all her own. The cast of characters are uniquely endearing. I loved the relationship between Ethan, Alex, Mason and Stephanie. Throw in

What a diverse mix of romance! First up The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken a Paranormal romance. In this world there are Immortals, Dark Ones and Humans. Humans are basically used by the immortals to breed. The characters are very likable and easy to care about. There is an underlying romance between Ethan and Genesis which becomes intense. In short for their relationship to work they have to change centuries of history. Interesting read and likable characters!

This collection contains paranormal, romcom, dark and angsty and contemporary reads. I have tried some books that I might not have given a chance by itself. I laughed and fell in love with so many great characters. These are all full length novels and are standalone or the duet is included. Grab this book for ...more

A Kiss For You is another amazing collection from Top Shelf Romance. While I've read a couple stories by RVD before this is my first PNR of hers and the other 3 authors were brand new to me. This collection had it all. From PNR to dark/angsty to contemporary to rom-com. There's something for everyone. Each story grabbed my attention from Page One and kept me engaged until the very end. Highly recommend! ...more

A Kiss For You top shelf romance each of these stories are all amazing, they are all strong authors and there really is something for everyone in this collection, my personal favourite is Rachel Van Dyken with The Dark Ones there was just something special about it, as with all of their writing. This collection is the tenth in the series and they just go from strength to strength.

This is a great collection that you are going to want to grab as soon as you can. One simple click gets you five amazing books (a duet+3 others) by four very talented authors. I thought there was a very welcome variety here. I found it very easy to read through this collection without getting bored or feeling burned out because all the books are quite different. This is my candid, elective review.

Loved this collection of stories. I’ve never read any of these authors before, each story was complete with a happy ever after. The first book was by Rachel Van Dyken and I don’t normally read paranormal, but I loved this story. Even had some tears. Bad Penny by Staci Hart was cute, turns out Penny did know who Bodie was. He’s always had a crush on her. King Duet by T.M. Frazier was a bit too long ( I think it was actually two books) , but I loved the twists in this story. My favorite story was ...more

A Kiss for You is a collection of books that packs a considerable punch in more ways than one. It’s a HUGE book and a massive bang for your buck. With five full novels, this book is not something you’ll be able to devour in one day…unless you don’t sleep for a full 24 hours, that is! I’m going to review each novel separately here, but I’ll try not to make it very wordy.

This is Genesis and Ethan’s story. This is the start of a paranormal series. This story was full of mystery and magical beings. This story has just the right amount of suspense and steam to keep you turning the pages.

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

Volume 10 of the Top Shelf Collection "A Kiss For You" does not disappoint either. It contains wonderful, exciting and heartwarming novels that are captivating from the first page to the last.

How come I haven't read this book earlier, even though it has been on my e-reader for ages?
This book is PERFECTION! From the first to the last page! Every twist, every turn ... pure perfection!
The protagonists, aside from being immortal, feel so relatable. I love this story
