After waiting anxiously for a release from two of my favorite authors I felt disappointed.
I love Fury, but I felt he didn't get his due. He was a character who understand hurt and betrayal however wasn't overly indulging in his pain as some other characters were. The book shows his quality that made him an alpha male and an oddity to the community of were-hunters. However his heroine fell short, as I felt with most of the other recent heroines, this author has put forth. I just didn't like her as a person and a human being despite the pain that she seems to be carrying on her shoulders. There is a new transition that is happening in N.O. and it's up to the next book to expose the bring back all the thing's that made this series great.
JR Ward introduced a new and refreshing story line and plot (Although I had secretly hoped for a BDB story, I'm glad it's not, because to put a reoccurring character and sum his story in less than 100 pages doesn't do him any services). Revolving around a lawyer and her one weekend of captivity, the heroine was someone at first glance cold and not likable, however her human nature allows readers to come to respect her.
I like Susan S. story, back in historical times ghost and superstition and the unjust criminal system, she introduces all of these elements and more and tie up nicely into one good overall read.
Diane's story provided a new aspect to the paranormal community. However, I can't seem to think what it was about.

After reading this book, I had to find more from J.R. Ward. The Story of Son is about a vampire imprisoned in his human mother's basement. He must feed once a year, so his elderly mother and her butler finds a female, locks her in with Son. He feeds, then wipes her memory of the events and free her. The last female is different. The mother is dying so her attorney comes to update her will, but ends up as a meal for Son and they fall in love. This story was so touching, funny, thrilling that I had to have more from Ward. I started reading a book a week from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series also written by her. Her writing keeps you turning the page even when you should be doing something else, ie eating, sleeping, working, cleaning... I so recommend her books--YOU MUST READ LOVER AWAKENEN

Red Alert! Sexy supernaturals ahead!! If you're a paranormal fan, don't miss the "Dead After Dark" anthology with stories by a three well-known names in the paranormal romance genre and one newcomer to watch.

Sherrilyn Kenyon's story "Shadow of the Moon" is about the werewolf Fury and takes places in the Dark-Hunter world. Fury has never let himself get close to a woman because the only woman he ever loved turned on him when his heritage was revealed. Now that woman is back, but this time she's in Fury's power. ***My only beef? Not long enough! Well...and I really wanted Fury for my own :)

"The Story of Son" by J.R. Ward is NOT a BDB story, but it IS a smoking hot contemporary story about a normal woman who gets caught up in an abnormal situation and ends up loving and saving a creature she should, by human standards, hate. ***I think this was my favorite story and I actually had tears in my eyes at one point. I'd like to see more stories from Ward about/in this world. Well...as long as it doesn't delay more BDB stories:P

Susan Squires offers "Beyond the Night" set in her historical Companion series. A man searching for love and revenge instead encounters a vampire who is searching for her own choices after a life of service to the leader of the vampires. Together, they both find the good and bad of what they're looking for. ***A sure winner if you like Squires' series. If you haven't read her series, this will give you an idea of its flavor.

New author Dianna Love rounds out the anthology with "Midnight Kiss Goodbye". A reunion romance of a modern-day warrior and the witch he left behind in an effort to keep her safe. Neither knows about the other's 'special' abilities. But know she's hunting and being hunted by a malevolent entity who's looking to use her as a gateway to unleash unspeakable violence on the world. ***Definitely an author to watch. I really enjoyed this glimpse into Love's intricate, mythical world. Very sexy and very urban fantasy. Hope to see more from her soon.

All in all, well worth the price and the read!

I love the romantic escape books and this is a very good one. I have read Sherrilyn Kenyon and J.R. Ward before and just love their writing. Dianna Love is a new writer to me but I would love to find more of her books..

Love Kenyon and Ward, the other two I am not familiar with. These short stories were okay. I am used to the full lenght stories, so these shorts were okay, passes the time.

Story of Son is super memorable, but I forgot the rest quickly. The five stars are for that story alone, a real page-turner. Wish it was longer.
