I won an ARC of this book from Ms. Laurenston and I really enjoyed it. I loved reading Eggie and Darla's story and finished it in one night. I was born in 1968, so the references to 1974 were amusing as I remember alot of them. I've been a big fan of Ms. Laurenston's shifter series for years now and can't wait for the next installment. I enjoyed Ms. Eden's story as well. I plan to check out some of her other work.

LOVED reading about Eggie and Darla. I always enjoyed seeing their appearances in Shelly's books. It was great to finally know their story. Darla is sweet as honey, but tough as nails. Eggie is adorable in being clueless about what to do with her. And yet still manages to protect her and kill people trying to kill her. You have to love the match up of a pacifist flower child and a trained killer. It was fun seeing the dynamic between the big and bad Smith brothers and the even tougher Lewis sisters. And I liked how Shelly tied Eggie and Darla's story from almost 40 years ago to the present stories by telling how the ladies car race got started. If you like the Pride Stories Series, you will enjoy this blast from the past. I never read anything from Cynthia Eden before. But I liked her Wed or Dead story with Kayla and Gage. One thing I didn't understand was, why stage a story in Las Vegas, but hardly have any action in the city itself? Most of the action takes place in the desert. But maybe that question is answered in one of her other books. That's one thing I like about anthologies, you usually buy them because they have stories from one or two of your favorite authors. But they are a good way to see other authors' works without paying for separate books. I'm not sure if I will buy any more of Cynthia Eden's books because I am so far behind in reading and seem never to get caught up. But I will keep her in mind if I want to try someone new.

This book contains two wolf-shifter stories by Shelly Laurenston and Cynthia Eden. I bought it because I enjoy Shelly Laurenston’s Pride series (also her dragon series as G.A. Aiken). In Like a Wolf With a Bone by Shelly Laurenston we learn the story of how Eggie and Darla Smith (Dee-Ann’s parents from Big Bad Beast (Pride, #6) ) got together. Egbert “Eggie” Ray Smith has a reputation even among his own kin of being slightly psychotic. Darla Lewis is the “quiet” Lewis sister. But there is someone for everyone and for Eggie its Darla. Darla gets the monosyllabic Eggie to open up if only to her and Eggie finds the one person on the planet who isn’t afraid of him. The only book I’ve read by Cynthia Eden up till now is Hotter After Midnight and to be honest I don’t remember it all that well. I guess I need to go back and re-read it. The second story in this book is Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden in which we find the alpha wolf-shifter of the Las Vegas pack, Gage, marrying a human hunter, Kayla. She knows he is a wolf-shifter but thinks he doesn’t know she is a hunter. It all started out as a job for her. Get close to Gage then kill him only she didn’t count on falling for the big lug. As I said at the beginning I bought this for the Shelly Laurenston story and wasn’t disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised by the Cynthia Eden story.

Like a Wolf with a Bone by Shelly Laurenston Egbert “Eggie” Ray Smith is one of the most-feared members of the rowdiest packs in the South. And once he kidnaps Darla Mae Lewis nothing is ever the same again. Darla Mae Lewis couldn’t believe her luck when Eggie kidnapped her. Sometimes a girl gets very tired of her family being overprotective of her. Eggie has managed to start a pack feud and unleash Darla Mae’s instincts all at the same time. Now Darla Mae can’t wait to see what comes next. Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden Gage Ryder knew his human bride could be wild. What he didn’t plan on was spending his honeymoon night trying to stay ahead of the hunters that are trying to finish him and his pack off. He might have fun playing with hunters under different circumstances but not on the one night he was looking forward to. Now Gage will do whatever it takes to uncover all of Kayla’s secrets and get to the truth. He just has to make sure he doesn’t’ get trapped in his own seductive game. This is another great story from both of these authors and that are sure to make them both auto-buys for many readers. Shelly’s story is sure to have readers in tears from laughing so hard and Cynthia is sure to have them in tears that the story is over. This can be a very fast read for some readers but it is one that shouldn’t be missed for anything. The stories pull the reader in and refuse to let go for any reason. The characters are fun and engaging.

Two excellent shifter tales. Shelly Laurenston brings together Egbert Ray Smith a wolf operative working for the government. He is home on vacation when his talents are needed to foil a deadly plot against Darla Lewis a She-wolf. Protection and Chemistry abound. Cynthia Eden's Wed or Dead is also included in Howl for It. Kyla Kincaid is a shifter hunter commissioned to take down Las Vegas Alpha Gage Riley. Story of twists and turns along with howling romance. Book was provided by Kensington books via NetGalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion.

Like a Wolf with a Bone - This was a sweet glimpse into how Eggie and Darla Mae ended up together. Of all the Smith boys and Lewis girls, this was one the ones that seemed mis-matched the most. As we follow these two, we realize it wasn't, it was the perfect fit. Their differences from their siblings make them perfect for each other. They bring out the quality of themselves in their mate, and you see where Dee Ann gets all the qualities that make her the amazing She-Wolf that she is Wed or Dead - started out reading but by chapter three I was bored with the wordiness of it. I was kinda interested in the story, so I quickly skimmed the rest of the book, quickly realized I wasn't all that interested after all

I was so happy when I first read it and still makes me happy every single time. They are like the two most important pieces of a puzzle and when you get them it all becomes perfect. Thank for adding Cynthia Eden story. I like and have many of her books too. Great work as always. Please keep writing.

Wow, this dynamic duo of authors really put together a kick ass anthology that I highly recommend! Two distinct stories featuring different types of shape shifters, but both containing sizzling romance and awesome plotlines. I love both these authors, and can't wait to read the next books in their series!

Very enjoyable. 4.5 *Book source ~ Many thanks to Kensington for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review. Howl For It contains two paranormal stories by authors I love. To read. Authors I love to read. *cough*  Like a Wolf with a Bone by Shelly Laurenston is about Eggie Ray Smith and Darla Mae Lewis, parents to the scary Dee-Ann Smith of many Pride books. Eggie Ray is one scary killer and Darla Mae is a pacifist. Well, she’s as much of a pacifist as a wolf shifter can be. The two shouldn’t have a thing in common, but their chemistry is off the charts and they find they can rub along quite well together. Now, if they can just keep their annoying families out of their business then Eggie won’t have to kill any of his, or her, kin. My only complaint about this story is that it is too short. I can read Pride books forever and never want them to end. I love the snarky conversation, the descriptions, the shifter interactions and the humor. When I open a Pride book I know I’m going to be entertained and I was not disappointed in this one. I actually rate this a 5 biter even if it was more of a snack than a meal. Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden seems to be set in the same world of her Night Watch and The Fallen series. Same world but maybe only loosely connected though I’m not positive. Anyway, Gage Ryder is a wolf shifter, the Alpha of Las Vegas and he’s being hunted. Kayla Kincaid is human, but she’s also something else. A Hunter. When her boss orders her to get close to Gage she does so. And when Gage asks her to marry him, her boss orders her to do so. But when he tells her to stab Gage in the heart with a silver blade on their wedding night, she just can’t do it. So with a Hunter team closing in, Gage and Kayla make a run for it together though neither one trusts the other. And that makes for a shaky start to a marriage. I always enjoy Cynthia Eden’s writing and characters. The plot on this could have used a bit more in the pre-planning stage instead of starting with Kayla walking down the aisle. I was a bit confused as to what the hell was going on and it made me a tad cranky. However, the plot picks up, things are explained and I was soon on the same page as the characters. If this is a short story introducing us to a new series I look forward to reading more. 4 bites and a nibble out of 5.
