"Captain of Nara’s Heart
Laurann Dohner

Nara knew she was taking a risk with illegal trading. Sure enough, she’s been arrested, caged—and will be auctioned as a sex slave. One look at the scary alien buyers and she frantically makes a deal, agreeing to be sold to Captain Vellar, who turns out to be large, sexy and seriously in heat. Offering her body to the captain is a given…but Nara didn’t expect to lose her heart in the process.

Dragon Heat
Mel Teshco

A highly skilled operative, Grace has been trained to track, fight and kill paranormal creatures. Only after she’s in the clutches of her latest target, a devastatingly sexy dragon-shifter, does she discover betrayal in her ranks. Suddenly the hunter is the hunter. Grace will soon discover her ex-agency’s horrific agenda—but not before seeking solace in all the pleasures of the flesh her new dragon ally has to offer.

Dangerous Addiction
Desiree Holt

Having finally realized his dream to own a ranch, Cord is ready for the next step—settling down with the perfect sub. And he’s found her in Fallon. A single glance from the smart, sultry beauty makes him hard, but abuse at the hands of her ex-Dom has kept Fallon away from the lifestyle she loves. Needs. It will take bondage, mind-blowing sex, a gentle hand and expert flogging for Cord to help her rediscover her favorite dangerous addition.

Highland Tryst
Eliza Knight

Having sworn off love, Kari Howard isn’t adverse to a little lust when a hot Highlander lands at her feet. Literally. Fin has traveled through time, and given what he’s packing under his kilt (good Lord!), Kari expects the sexy Scotsman to make her quake. But she didn’t expect Fin to shake her very foundation…or cherish her for who she is.

Tattoo Witch
Kathy Kulig

There cannot be good without evil, light without dark… At a seaside resort, lovers Sam and Anita meet a mysterious, heavily tattooed couple who refers them to Sinful Designs. The owner is a witch whose magical tattoos grant scorching, kinky sex beyond their wildest fantasies—but there’s a catch. Each successive tattoo comes with a darker and scarier curse. Sam and Anita can break the spells…but at what cost?

The Addiction
Jaid Black

The long-awaited sequel to The Possession! John Calder has everything most men would kill for—golden-Adonis looks, endless money, a steely reputation as a savvy businessman and beautiful women throwing themselves at his feet. Then he meets Shelli Rodgers, a quirky, klutzy Ph.D. student who takes John on an emotional and sensual journey, giving him the one thing he’s never attained—happiness."

    Captain of Nara¿s Heart- I LOVED this story. For not being very

    Captain of Nara’s Heart- I LOVED this story. For not being very long we were able to connect with the characters and have enough back story we weren’t fumbling around. You fall in love with Nara. Poor, poor Nara. She is caught in a terrible situation and she is trying to make the best of it. Luckily, the Captain is my second favorite kind of Hero- the kind that is a gentleman and treats you with the utmost respect but is a dynamite in bed. The other secondary characters are amazing too. There was even some action to keep up on our toes. I wish the ending was a little more fleshed out. But that is the ONLY issue with this short story. Well done and I will be reading more by this author.

    Highland Tryst- This story was ok. A highlander falls out of nowhere and meets a woman who’s boyfriend she JUST caught cheating on her. Within a few moments orgasms happen and BAM! she can’t live without him. After that I had a hard time trying to get into the story. *shrugs* I don’t know. I’ve never really understood that whole love at first sight thing. But if that sort of thing rocks your boat then give this story a shot. Just because this story wasn’t my cup of tea does not mean that it was terribly written or it was a pointless story. It wasn’t. Just not for me.

    The Addiction- This was an interesting story. Less sex than the other stories but a little more lighthearted. I laughed out loud at this one. I felt for the heroine. She was hilarious and SO mixed up but willing to find her way. The main character was definitely tormented and struggling with an inner demon. I think I would have liked to see them have more time together before he starts to change his life. Though there is something moving about one night together and you are THAT sure about someone. It is a sweet story with an adorable ending.

    Dangerous Addiction- I have mixed feelings about this story. I really liked the characters. The Dom was very sure about himself but also cautious when he saw the the sub was having issues. He wanted to make sure that he understood what was going on in her head before going further. All the things that a good Dom would do. The sub was nervous and scared but desperate. This made sense with her back story. They acted just right for those circumstances. Until **SPOILER** you get to the scene where he takes a crop to her. It isn’t bad at all. She doesn’t bleed or scream for mercy or anything. I think what bothered me about the scene was how well she took to it. I get that she trusted him and I understand that this was something she loved. But after her bad experience I wanted a little more hesitation. I wanted her to safe word just so she knew that she could. But she didn’t. **END SPOILER** The end of the story is cute. The couple looks like they are going to make it with a few obstacles in the way that could make things interesting. I was just looking for a little bit more character development. But this in no way means that I will skip over this story when I re read the anthology. I just keep in mind I have to be really open with this story.

    Tattoo Witch- This story was cute. And I definitely didn’t see the ending coming. I thought something totally different was going to happen and I was pleasantly surprised when it unfolded as it did. That was definitely my favorite part of the story. The idea of a tattoo inflicting both a blessing and a curse was really fun. As far as characters go, I didn’t really like the girl in the story. I thought she was a little bit $itchy but the guy seemed to be a sweetheart if not a little bit stupid. All this considered- the ending is what makes this story. How deep they get into trouble and their unfailing ability to do the right thing even though the wrong thing is SO much easier makes this a story that gives a reason to believe people are inherently good. At least… this reviewer likes to think so.

    Dragon Heat- A tad unrealistic. Just a tad. She’s an assassin that sleeps with her target minutes after meeting him. Now, the only reason I manage to overlook this for the most part is he is a shifter which means that he has the ability to sense a “mate”. After that the story is fast paced and interesting in the revelations. The outcome is a little entertaining and exactly how I would expect a dragon to take care of situations. Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I will more than likely be looking into more by this author. Review by Sarah. Book Provided by Publisher. Review Originally Posted @ Romancing the Book.

    I loved all the short stories in this anthology except tattoo witch. SOOOOO BAD!! all the other stories GREAT! I couldn't put this down at all until I started reading tattoo witch then I just skipped the short story, could NOT get into it at all. The Addiction- wonderful!!! This would have been soo much better without tattoo witch.

    None

    Normally I only read short stories if they are part of a series I have been reading. I usually find a book of shorts lacking in story or character development. I decided to take a chance on these since there were several authors I like attached to this one. I was surprised these for the most part kept my attention.

    something a little different

    Each of these romances has something a little different, but all are engaging and exciting. I love the diversity of characters, back grounds, and levels of intimacy in each of these stories. I would have to say my favorite couple is Cord and Fallon, but there is something in each story that sparks the imagination. It is not often you get such a mélange of great writers, and I hope you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to get a taste of their skill.

    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.

    The first story is missing the last six pages, and this is the story I bought the book for. Very frustrating. I hesitate to read any of the rest if they are going to be incomplete too! Seven dollars wasted.

    Waste of money and time.

    I didn't finish this book. Only read the first story and started the second, but had to stop. The stories didn't hold my attention for long because there was no depth to the characters and it was just sex.

    I expected a little better from Laurann Dohner, but it was disappointing. The story had beginning and ending but no middle. Won’t buy another anthology.

    I laughed so hard when I read Jaid Black's story. She is a natural at writing comedies.

    Laurann Dohner and Jaid Black. Need I say more? And the opportunity to read good stories by unfamiliar authors was too good to be true. Great anthology.
