Sundown by Linda Winstead Jones:
While I enjoyed this novella, I definately think it would have made a better full-length novel. It was almost too short to fully develop the nature of some of the characters, most particularly Margaret. I was left wanting to know more about her, her history, what made her who she was. I almost felt like I was pulled into the story when it was already halfway over with a lot of backstory already past. I liked the story but I wish it had been a little longer.

Sundown - Linda Winstead Jones - a good story, although Linda can and did better. I like the characters and the ideea, but I think some things should have been further explored and others shortened. 3.5 stars

NSCLAV (awfully long title)- Lisa Childs - I feel sorry for this story. I'm not even gonna say it could have been great. The premise was ok, I suppose. But the romance felt so rushed, that I didn't belive it for a minute. I couldn't care for the characters. It made me sad. 2 star

This was a pretty good book. I liked all three stories and they kept me interested. I wouldn't mind reading his again, but it wouldn't a search-out kinda thing. There were some great characters, good plots, some action, a little suspense, a good amount of emotions, some smiles, and (of course!) humor. I liked the endings and was glad all three stories were good. My favorite: the little green people! ;) Anthologies mostly seem like a hit and miss. Overall, pretty good and not disappointed, but no ...more

Sundown by Linda Winstead Jones- 3 stars. Okay story. Started out with a lot of promise and then just fizzled out.

Nothing Says Christmas Like a Vampire by Lisa Childs- 1 star. Sorry, just didn't like it. They make love within a couple of pages and then realize later "Oh I think I love you" and the heroine discovers a "gift" she had her entire life but just didn't know it until the hero came along. Yeah right...

Unwrapped by Bonnie Vanak- 2 stars. Not for me. All these stories are too short to have a good plot A/>Unwrapped/>Nothing

Calling this a book about vampires is a misnomer. It is more a book about romances with superpowered humans who happened to sometimes maybe possibly drink a bit of blood. Solving the "how can a dead body have sex" problem is easy when you start out with vampires not really being dead in the first place. Ah, well. Popcorn romance novellas. I can't say it fell short of my expectations since they were just in the realm of a fast, easy, somewhat satisfying read.

This book consists of three different romance stories with vampires being the main character. These stories are very different from the popular Twilight series in that the characters do have sex outside of marriage though similar in that the first two books are love stories between a human and a vampire. The last one is a love story between a werewolf and a vampire.

I have finished:

1. Sundown by Linda Winstead Jones 3 *** Stars

My thoughts: Pleasant enough I guess for a short read but I felt there was way too much left out - Did I miss a series this story goes too? Not that I can find =( Overall = Forgettable

Read Sundown by Linda Winstead Jones. I enjoyed it.

The 2nd story- Nothing Says Christmas Like a Vampire by Lisa Childs was a good story but more sexual.

Unwrapped by Bonnie Vanak- I enjoyed this one as well

Not a big fan of anthologies unless they are from my favorite series. These were an interesting diversion and better than most.

This particular book had 3 stories included and honestly I had a little trouble getting into the 1st one, though it did get better. The other 2 stories I very much enjoyed.
