I bought this book specifically to read the Lora Leigh novella which is part of her Breed series. Her story is the last in the anthology, and if I could give it 6 stars, I would! The other 3 stories are OK. They have the requisite hot sex scenes, but the plots didn't grab me as much as Leigh's story. That is why I gave the book a 4* rating.

Sexy beyond belief, Matthias Slaughter is probably the hardest, most daunting Breed male we have yet met in the Breeds saga. The man is beyond hardcore, dedicated to eradicating the evil that spawned the Breeds and now threatens their very existence. It is just his luck to meet his own mate on just such a mission. How ironic that the kind, soft-hearted Grace should be his mate. But it is just those qualities that gentle him, and he fights his very nature to allow her the freedom of choice so important to her. Some parts wild, wicked and fun. Other parts a little weak. Too much time was spent in the thoughts of Matthais, thinking and worrying about losing her and his life without her. Too much time was spent with Grace rejecting him and wanting to get away from him after seeing him shoot another man. But otherwise, it was enjoyable. Story brief: Matthais is 1/2 wolf and 1/2 human. His breed has only one mate for life. He meets Grace and knows she is his. He spends time with her. Then she sees him execute a man who had tortured others. Matthais kidnaps Grace and she eventually gives in and falls in love with him. Sexual language: erotic. Number of sex scenes: five, some several pages long. Setting: 2003 New York city and Catskill Mountains in upstate New York. Genre: erotic paranormal romance. I could go on forever, but that would be futile if you don't already love these artests.

In a Wolf's EmbraceAlthough the stories in a anthology are well written and engrossing they never seem long enough. I love the Breeds and I am always glad to see more stories about the wolves. There seems to be more Feline stories than Canine. I like these characters, Matthias Slaughter and Grace Anderson, they were made for each other in so many ways. Grace is courageous and intelligent and compassionate. Matthias is loyal and wound and so very confused by all the things that Grace shows him. This is another of those stories that you need to keep tissues handy for. Not for the abuses that Matthias has gone through but because of the battle that happens and consequences of that battle with a director of the Council and some nasty coyotes. This is a good addition to the Breed series even if there so very little added to the ongoing story and no new characters were introduced.

**Courtesy of CK2S Kwips & Kritiques**Four mistresses of romantic fiction come together in one fantastic anthology featuring four riveting paranormal tales. I was already a fan of Angela Knight, Emma Holly and Lora Leigh, but Beyond the Dark was the first chance I have yet had to experience Diane Whiteside¿s talent. In my honest opinion, each of the stories in this collection has earned Kwips¿ highest rating of five Klovers! ~Dragon Dance by Angela Knight~ Random humans have developed inexplicable paranormal abilities. The change comes upon them without warning, and for many, they never recover from the madness that accompanies the transition period. Hostage negotiator Arial Dean is called in to talk down one such `Hyper¿, as they are called, in a standoff that threatens not only the man¿s wife and children, but every living being in the vicinity. It will take the combined efforts of Arial and the mysterious man known only as Tracker to subdue this dangerous new Hyper.Angela Knight recently became one of my favorite authors, and I have been greatly anticipating this story from her! Dragon Dance in no way disappointed me. This story has several twists that I did not anticipate but which greatly ramped up my excitement for this story when each was revealed. I guess I am trying to say that it got better and better with each page! LOL Of course, it was captivating from page one, with characters that leapt off the page, immediately engendering a feeling of familiarity for them, and definitely a strong empathy. As can be expected from an author who has affectionately described her work as `blatant smut¿, Dragon Dance has some blazing hot love scenes between Arial and Tracker! Of course, simply calling this story blatant smut would do this talented author a disservice. Without the emotion Ms. Knight effortlessly wrings from her characters, it would simply be sex. But Knight has written a true love story, with all the romantic passion guaranteed to satisfy any romance reader. ~Caught by the Tides by Diane Whiteside~ It is 1803 and England remains on guard for threat from Napoleon Bonaparte. Both the French and the English employ the use of powerful mages with the ability to control the elements and more in their battles. Owen Bentham is just such a King¿s Mage, in service to England. As he carries an imperative message that can change the tide of the war, the enemy calls a storm that leaves him near dead.When Emma finds the handsome man washed up on her beach, she recognizes him as a King¿s Mage by the ring he wears, and knows that her duty to help him goes beyond simple human kindness, but is a duty to her country. But in caring for Owen, she finds herself caught in the midst of the fight, an unexpected but significant pawn that the traitorous mage will do anything to control. In order to foil the traitor and help Owen succeed in his mission, she must give everything she is to Owen. As I said previously, Caught by the Tides is the first time I have read anything by Diane Whiteside, and made me oh so glad I have two more of her books waiting on my book shelf right now! Ms. Whiteside writes with a skill that draws the reader in to the story as if they were experiencing it for themselves instead of turning pages in a book.The author¿s magical take on the Napoleonic wars was an absolute delight! I am not usually drawn to stories about wars, especially true historical events, but the paranormal element added an extra `oomph¿ to this story that made me forget this may not be my typical reading choice. Of course, the focus of the story is really on the battle between the two mages as well as Emma¿s and Owen¿s romance, with the Napoleonic threat as more of a backdrop.At every turn, the noble Emma is ready to perform her duty to her country and King, especially when it involves Owen. No matter what he needs, she is willing to give to him, and it soon becomes apparent to both the reader and Emma herself that this is

I read Dragon Dance and thought this is an unusal idea, a "virus" that allows a person to become like a superhero - providing they don't go crazy while adjusting. Then to find out that the "virus" actually allows an alien race to inhabit your body and gives you your "powers". An unusual read, but very well done, and I'm looking forward to seeing if Ms. Knight does any other stories in this line. To me it was as good as her Mageverse series. Ms. Whiteside's contribution seemed to start in a fairly normal way - if you're a mage that is. Then to have the hero rescued by the heroine who really doesn't seem to have magical talents, only to discover she does, at first it seemed a little formulatic. But as the story goes on, you discover that while the heroine does have magical talent, it appears to be minor, but it's tied to the land, and when she finally opens herself to the land, her power allows the hero to help stop a war. Emma Holly's story - what can I say? The story rocked! I didn't like the king from the get go, and then when he "threw" his son to the queen as a gesture of peace, I liked him even less. But when I discovered just what the king had done in the past to the queen, and what he had planned for his son and the queen in the near future, I was ready to lead a war party myself against him. I've followed Ms. Leigh's Breed series since I found them, and I still haven't read them all. This one is a typical Breed albeit a wolf and not a feline so there are some differences. An assassin and his mate, the witness. There was no doubt in my mind that he loves her, and she loves him, but she won't stay unless he changes his ways. When he calls her "his sunshine", I cried, it was beautifully written, and kept me turning the pages even at 1:30 am.
