My favortie of these stories was Sharie Kohler's DARKEST TEMPTATION. Lily was infected by lycans when they slaughtered her friend in a nightclub massacre. Now she must kill the pack Alpha to release herself from the curse which will turn her into a monster at the next full moon. The hunter has brought her to a mansion and pointed her toward her target. Unfortunately a frightened human woman is no match for Luc, a centuries old Dovenatu-a human lycan hybrid--who lives behind the tall walls. Even as he chains her to a mattress in the room that will be her prison for the next weeks, Lily's vulnerability and humanity crack the shell of isolation Luc's created for himself. As she begins turning, he takes pity on her agony even as he fights the desire consuming him, a desire Lily returns. Soon their shared passion turns to something more-forcing them both to face the deadly choices they will have to make before the next full moon. Fan's of Sharie Kohler's Moonchaser series will recognize that world in this beautifully crafted novella. In fact, we met Luc and Lily as a couple in TO CRAVE A BLOOD MOON and now we learn their history. Luc is the ultimate damaged hero who just wants to be left alone until Lilly arrives and brings out the nobility and goodness he believes he's lost. Lily's a fighter who has buried herself in the responsibility of caring for her mother until Luc awakens the love and passion she's denied herself. The romance is both sizzling and tender, with a looming inevitability that keeps the reader on the edge of her seat and turning pages to the very end. This story is a marvelous bonus for all of us who love the series!

I wish each short story was a whole book. Each short story was full and complete. I fell in love with each character that I wanted more. I hope you will try it. It was a wonderful read and worth the money.

It has only been recently that I have been able to really appreciate anthologies. In the past they have been an irksome expense endured to possess a missing story from a beloved author to fill-in gaps in an ongoing series. I did not truly appreciate them until I began to have crossovers; new series I found and loved that happened to have shorts in anthologies I already owned. It was like finding gold buried on my shelves. All new stories by authors I loved in series I was hooked on that I already had—just waiting to be read. It was a kind of a eureka moment. And I finally realized what I am sure both authors and publishers expect to be apparent at the start—indeed a partial reason behind anthologies—that if you like one author’s writing in them, odds are you might like some of the others. Stupid simple, but hey, I’m a simple kinda gal…sometimes it takes me a while to grasp seemingly obvious ideas. It is with this in mind that I read through Haunted by Your Touch, and while one of the stories did leave me flat I also found an author I’ve never read before and enjoyed their work. So, fair trade. “Night’s Darkest Embrace” by Jeaniene Frost When I bought this anthology I did so mainly for Ms. Frost’s contribution to it; tho I have to admit I was under the impression that this story was set in her Night Huntress series. When I read “Night’s Darkest Embrace” and discovered it was in a new and different world I was somewhat surprised, surprised but overjoyed because—just as most of Ms. Frost’s works that I have read thus far—it is a wonderful story. Set in a reality where Fallen Angels, Demons and Partials (those who only have a percent of demon blood) can travel to different dimensions this short novella had me love the characters from the moment I met them. The world building was immersive, and the plot moved so that you were never quite sure where it would take you next, but were eager for the ride. This story also had Ms. Frost’s scorch-marks very much in evidence; the passion was explosive and like in any good romance novel love made sure of a happy ending. I lapped up all 156 pages of this story and would be thrilled to pieces if Ms. Frost ever chose to return to this world and write another dose of wonderful. I give this story five stars. “Mated” by Shayla Black This story was my first taste of Ms. Black’s writing, and I have to say that I would go back for seconds. Set in the “Doomsday Brethren” series, “Mated” was a fun mage-type story that despite being thrown into a universe that I was unfamiliar with managed to stand on its own. In this evocative tale Ms. Black let me feel the measure of the world she had created and care for not just the central characters but have a relationship with several more that I gather already had their own stories told. While this particular world may not be one I will seek out again, as I am not much for the evil-wizard-taking-over-the-world bit I was still impressed by the feel that was created. Ms. Black’s characterization was the redeeming factor for me, the intimacy and feeling she was able to induce with her characters, even when they were being obstinate in realizing it touched a chord with me. She managed to capture me in her 121 pages, and for that I will keep my eye out for other possible works she may create. I give this story three stars. “Darkest Temptation” by Sharie Kohler In the hit and miss world of the anthology this story was a miss for me. I’ll admit it, I couldn’t even read it all the way through. I’m sure that Ms. Kohler is wonderful in her craft, but this story and writing just rubbed me the wrong way. Full of werewolves and hunters and an attacked heroine I just couldn’t hack it long enough to experience the story. Hopefully if you give it a try your mileage will vary.

I received this book as an ARC. Haunted by Your Touch is a collection of three stories from sizzling paranormal romance authors. The first is Night's Darkest Embrace by Jeaniene Frost. Set in a world of dimension jumping demons it's rife with emotion, mainly of the tragic and vengeance kind. Mara is a quarter demon, strong enough to cross over to Nocturna, a wild west/Victorian era feeling dimension of demons. When she was a teen she and her cousin ran afoul of some Full Blood demons, who feed on Parials like herself. Since then she's dedicated her life to finding her cousin's killer. The world is neat and intriguing except for the repeated reminder that even simple machines like watches don't work in Nocturna, yet somehow guns do. The plot is certainly not terrible, but it depends on a misunderstanding that's plain as day. Overall the story is interesting, vivid and clips along nicely, but the misunderstanding twist adds a sheen of cliché to it that's disappointing. Next up is Mated by Shayla Black, the weakest of the three (which isn't saying much). This tale of wizards caught up in a dangerous battle against an evil wizard back from the dead who wants to take over the world features at least one powerful, headstrong lead, Raiden, an unabashed womanizer who discovers the home of the woman he knocked up has been attacked and the family is believed to be dead. The emotion is sizzling in this tale, but it reads like an adult, sexed up version of Harry Potter (imagine Harry Potter meets True Blood). In addition Raiden is an utter jerk and his love Tabby mostly spends her time being rescued and hoping that Raiden will admit he loves her. Which leads to either an abusive feel (at worst), or a jerk of a hero and a weak heroine who can barely do a spell to save herself. While well written, and emotionally powerful I also found it disappointing. Finally is Darkest Temptation by Sharie Kohler. This one is a complete score, hitting on the old wolfman legend by pitting a newly bitten woman, set up by a hunter to kill someone she thinks is the werewolf whose death can return her soul, with a nearly inhuman man who is neither werewolf or man, but something else. This one I enjoyed a lot, both the tension between the characters and the doomed feel of Lilly's life (even before she was bitten by a lycan). It's only real flaw is that after a great start there's a hiccup as it rushes to finish the story in a short form. Despite some disappointment I'd give this book a solid three stars, because the writing is there, I think the stories just didn't strike the right chord with this reader.

Jeaniene Frost is my Favorite author, and "Night's Darkest Embrace" is very different from her usual Cat and Bones series I am used to from her, but this one was still very good and detailed. I love how she describes everything so that you feel like you are there or watching a movie. I also enjoyed Shayla Black's "Mated" and Sharie Kohler's "Darkest Temptation", and am thinking about picking up some of their other books from these good short stories.
