Overview

Let these seductive tales of everlasting romance transport you to a world where the most dangerous desires awaken after dark. . .
"Kiss of the Vampire," Hannah Howell

Seeking the truth of his tortured heritage at court, Jankyn McNachton finds something he never expected--true desire. Efrica Callan is beautiful, innocent, and possessed of a courageous heart. She spurns the men who court her dowry, but all Jankyn can offer this lovely creature of light is life in the darkness--and in his arms. . .

"His Eternal Bride," Adrienne Basso

Suspecting her of murdering her husband, Callum, on their wedding night, Maev McCloskey's clan has banished her to a remote tower. There, she dreams of her dead love--and the passion they never knew in life. But soon she wonders if the seductive, mysterious Callum of her sleeping mind is real--and, if he is, whether joining him in his world would be an act of courage. . .or of madness. . .

"To Tame the Beast," Deborah Raleigh

In revenge for the curse that has forever banished him to the shadows, the creature called the Beast of MacDonnell demands the firstborn female child of each generation. Isobella's sister is soon to suffer this fate--unless Isobella can save her. Unafraid, she intends to confront the monster when she finds a strange man instead: a warrior with the face of an angel and mesmerizing silver eyes who tempts her like no other. . .

    Vampire Hotties!

    I had never read Hannah Howell's books but am a big fan of Stephenie Meyer, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kresley Cole and Diana Gabaldon. Great read because it's an anthology of three, well-written stories featuring, you guessed it, hot, old world vampires. If you like historical romance, the twist on the supernatural is awesome because it adds an element of magic t the characters.

    Yummy, Yummy, Yummy

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I had to say it three times because finally three authors wrote three stories for the same book which were really good. While I enjoy reading short stories now and again, I find it irritating that only one or two of the stories are actually good. Well, this is not the case for Highland Vampire. In the first story, an unwanted romance is stirring between the devilish hero and a tamed tigress. In the second story, a bride is robbed of her wedding night only to be haunted in her dreams by the ghost of her fiance. In the last story (my personal favorite), a brave young girl is determined to find a way to end the curse only to find herself trapped in the arms of the beast! I just love rugged men with a lot of bite! :) Enjoy!

    Pretty Good...........................

    Especially the HH story about Jankyn Macnaughton a secondary character from The Immortal Highlander. Nice to see how his story plays out. Jankyn's kids turn up later in The Eternal Highlander. The other two stories were OK.

    I have read most of Hannah Howell's books and continue to do so

    I have read most of Hannah Howell's books and continue to do so because the world is full of unhappy endings. But Hannah's books are always a happy get away with great endings. I don't care to read about reality all the time. It really stinks sometimes. But if you are a romantic and like wonderful romantics stories, Hannah Howell's books are a good idea. Also, I have read complaints about the Scottish vocabulary. I am Scottish and love to read the way the old Scots talked. These books are fun and hard to put down.

    Three Wonderful Vampire Romance Stories

    If you like paranormal romance, you will enjoy all three of these easy reads. Sometimes, reading a short story is a relief because there isn't long drawn out 'does he love me/does he not.' The stories just GO...Enjoy
