CARESS OF PLEASURE: She'll agree to help him…but who will help her heart?
I'd thought that he was mine, the dark, arresting man who commanded not only my body but my heart. Dante had swept into my life, and I'd succumbed to the burn of passion in his arms. I'd believed we had a love that would last forever, but he'd shattered my dreams and broken me into pieces when he'd walked away, taking a piece of my soul with him. Now he has come back seeking my help, and though I try to keep my distance and protect my heart, I cannot deny that the fire between us burns hotter than ever. And I cannot help but fear that this time our passion will reduce us both to ashes.

ETERNAL GUARDIANS: AriOnce an Eternal Guardian, now he's nothing but a rogue mercenary with one singular focus: revenge.

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

I enjoyed the collection of stories in this latest "1001 Dark Nights" anthology. Bundle five contains six novellas that are a combination of paranormal, mythological and contemporary romances. While some were familiar in name, I had not read any of the authors in this volume, so all of the authors were new to me. One major factor that influences my evaluation of a story is how well I connect to the author’s writing style, and even though not all of the stories in this anthology were in my preferred genre, I was able to engage in the each one because I liked the author’s writing. The characters were well-developed and interesting, and each story was compelling in its own unique way. One of the stand-out novellas for me in this anthology was "Adored" by New York Times Bestselling Author Lexi Blake. A Contemporary Romance with a BDSM backstory, Adored has a sexy alpha hero and steamy erotic scenes. Another favorite was written by newcomer Michelle St. James. "The Sentinel" is a contemporary romance about two childhood friends, who, as adults, find themselves secretly attracted to the other. The twist is that one of them is keeping a dark secret that threatens to destroy any potential connection. I admit that my preferred genre is contemporary romance, which is clearly evidenced by my two stand-out favorites. However, that in no way discounts the other stories in the anthology. It’s merely a matter of preference, and "1001 Dark Nights" definitely has something for eve.
