    Overall, the rating was a 3*, and here's why (I'll skip the summaries),

    #1: "Captain of Nara's Heart" -Laurann Dohner (5*)
    I love Dohner. She's fabulous. And this is my favorite story in this anthology. It's marvelously written, very hawt, with a good and seemingly legit backstory/world. Great, great, great.

    #2: "Dragon Heat" -Mel Teshco (2.5*)
    Uhm...I have no attachment to this story. The best I can muster is indifference. It certainly wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything to write home about, either. Was it sexy? Yes. Was it a bit flat? A bit.

    #3: "Dangerous Addiction" -Desiree Holt (2.5*)
    Meh. Again, mustered indifference.

    #4: "Highland Tryst" -Eliza Knight (3*)
    This is certainly more interesting than the previous two stories. Typically I find myself leery of Scottish/Highland stories: at one point or another in her career, nearly every romance writer tries to cobble together a Scottish/Highland romance with nothing more than an accent, a kilt, and a marvelously-proportioned alpha male. And few are a success. (Consider one success story: Jackie Ivie's "Lady of the Knight")

    #5: "Tattoo Witch" -Kathy Kulig (1.5*)
    I really want to give this more stars because the premise is so awesome. However, I skipped through this. All told, I didn't read much of it. The characters didn't interest me at all, and I think I boiled it down pretty well, but this means I skipped a lot of detail. However, I have no interest in going back to re-read.

    #6: "The Addiction" -Jaid Black (0*)
    I have had zero success with Black stories in the past. Perhaps her style simply isn't my cup of tea? Also, I haven't read "The Possession," to which "The Addiction" is apparently the sequel. Let that guide you, and take this with a grain of salt: I read maybe 5 words then stopped. I had zero interest in continuing.


    All-in-all, a 3* rating wasn't enough to convince me to keep this anthology around. I returned it and, aside from the beginning Dohner story, I can't say that I'll miss any of them.

    Just OK

    I bought this because I love Laurann Dohner. Was disappointed. To be fair I don't like short stories, I prefer to get more involved with the characters. Over all for a goup of short stories it was ok. You get a lot for the $8.
