it was amazing

"Queen of Hearts" is Kristen Painter's first addition to "A Sin City Collectors novella" series. Sin City Collectors are supernaturals that are called in when another supernatural has committed a crime. In this first novella, Claudette, a special feline shifter, is called out of retirement to retrieve the 'Queen of Hearts' ruby that was stolen from the Boss's safe along with bringing in the gargoyle who stole it in the first place. But when she starts her assignment she quickly realizes that the job is and offending supernatural is much more complicated than she expected. Can Claudette straighten out this mess, keep her heart safe, and not get collected herself? Overall, I enjoyed this story. The characters meshed well together and were fun to read.

"Dead Man's Hand" by Kristen Painter is her second stand alone novella in "A Sin City Collectors" series. Seraphina is the daughter of a Muse, making her a demi-goddess. Her words inspire men to produce their best work. Her current employer is a famous artist whose daughter has gone missing. Like any good father, he called the one person who can help. On assignment as a collector, Ares (not the Greek god of war) is half reaper and half vampire. Anyone who touches his skin loses his soul. Ares and Seraphina team up to find the missing girl. But they find more than just the teen, they find each other. The trick is can they ever be together? Overall, I enjoyed this novella.

"Double or Nothing" is the third novella written by Kristen Painter for the Sin City Collectors Series. Gage Hudson is a vampire on a mission. For nearly two hundred years he's sought after his brother's killer. He's sacrificed everything including the trust and respect of the Pixie he loves. Minka Winslow who was introduced in "Dead Man's Hand", has spent the last two years getting over Gage. She lost much because of his betrayal and is finally starting to gain back her place in the Sin City Collectors hierarchy. The two are forced to come together in an impossible life and death situation. Will either one of them survive or will they lose both their hearts and their lives. Overall, Kristen Painter is an awesome writer. Her characters and storylines have a wealth of depth that keeps me coming back for more.
