I thoroughly enjoyed reading this! Sometimes I think Lora Leigh goes a bit too erotic (that's simply my moral issues haha), but I really liked this story. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who loves cats and loves romance, as this is a great combination of the two.

All I can say is that these stories are very original, well written and hard to stop reading. Sexier than I expected, but not offensive. I will have to look into other Breed series books.

I was not disappointeed with Ms. Singh's story which is why I bought the book. Lora Leigh's contribution was also quite good & the other 2 stories were okay.

Stroke of Enticement-Nalini Singh 4.5 stars Annie and Zach's story has an insta-love vibe, but over the course of a month, these two break down barriers most couples fail to achieve after years together. This sexy and touching read has become a favorite! Christmas Heat-Lora Leigh 4 stars The Breed series can sometimes be hit and miss for me. However, Noble and Haley’s story was a definite hit with an insidious plot, a touch of humor, and sexy chemistry!

"The Magical Christmas Cat" is a collection of four hot stories by four well-known paranormal romance authors. I enjoyed that each author used a different 'take' on the whole cat theme. In this anthology we have a leopard shifter, a witch's familiar, a demon that resides in a jade cat, and a Jaguar 'breed' enforcer. Stroke of Enticement by Nalini Singh. A Psy-Changeling story about Zach, a sexy leopard shifter who meets his mate, a human...and will use both his instincts, cat and man, to lure her to him.Christmas Bree by Erin McCarthy. She's a goth witch. He's an uptight GQ lawyer. But since their only meeting one year ago, both of them have been having seriously hot, wet dreams...about each other. What happens when they meet again and realize they've been sharing those dreams?Sweet Dreams by Linda Winstead Jones. Ruby is a single, shy woman who just lost the last of her family. At the neighborhood Christmas party she's surprised to receive an 'extra' gift from a secret admirer, a very old small jade statuette of a cat. She's even more surprised when her neighbor, absent minded parapsychology Professor Benedict suddenly doesn't want to leave her alone. Christmas Heat by Lora Leigh. Noble has known Haley is his mate for a year now, but he's used the violence and distance his job as a Breed Enforcer requires to delay deepening their platonic relationship. But when she becomes entangled in a plot against the breeds and becomes a target to keep her from testifying, Noble knows the time has come to claim his mate.I'm still fanning myself. In order of enjoyment: Lora Leigh and Nalini Singh were a tie for first, followed by Erin McCarthy and then Linda Winstead Jones. "The Magical Christmas Cat" will definitely heat up your holidays!!

I enjoy anthologies because it gives me an opportunity to try new authors who have a simiar style to an author that I already enjoy; however, I find the format challenging because these shorter stories often lack the character development that I enjoy. The Magical Christmas Cat definitely had a mix of quality but the great stories were very well done. I primarily bought this book for Lora Leigh's new breed story "Christmas Heat". Although some of the storyline was similar to past breed books (human in danger falls for breed, shocked by mating heat, HEA), these are so well written that they keep my interest. Haley and Noble were interesting characters, the story furthered the whole breed plot and it was very steamy! The only complaint I have is that if you have not read Mercury's War (which came out two weeks prior to this), there is a small spoiler that wraps up the intrigue in that book. I haven't read Mercury's War and although I now have some knowledge about "who did it", I don't think it will hurt my enjoyment of the book. Although I love Lora Leigh, my favorite story was Nalini Singh's "Stroke of Enchantment". I have heard of the author but have never read any of her books; this story was part of her Psy-Changeling series. Even though I wasn't at all familiar with the background of the creatures in the book, Singh's storytelling quickly brings you up to speed on the attributes of her creations and the challenges they face. I was intrigued by the techology and the time in which these characters live. Zach was a sexy and intriguing hero and Anna was a unique heroine who I wanted ot learn more about. I will definitel ybe reading more of Singh's books.Unfortunately, the other two stories were not as strong. The character's in Erin McCarthy's "Christmas Bree" were flat and there was little character development. This story also seemed like it was reworked to fit into the "Christmas cat" and paranormal formula for the book. Linda Winstead Jones' "Sweet Dreams" epitomizes why I am often disappointed with short stories. Her characters descriptions and backgrounds were very intriguing but their actions were often outside the character development and the action and plot in the story was unbelievable and somewhat silly.However, despite these shortcomings, Leigh and Singh's stories are strong enough to make this a buy for those who enjoy their respective series.

Another great anthology with a Christmas Cat theme from two author's that I know and two author's that I didn't know. I'm a fan of Nalini Singh and Lora Leigh though I've read more of Singh's works than Leigh's. Both author's crafted really well-written stories that leave you hungry for more. Jones and McCarthy stories had intriguing elements in them. Nalini Singh's Stroke of Enticement was unique blend of Psy/Changeling action. I loved Annie Kildaire's character from the beginning! She was such a strong character with a strength that many other women would have fallen flat on their faces in dealing with what she had too. Zach Quinn was such an unassuming male that took things as they came and demanded very little in return. You could tell from the beginning that Zach and Annie were meant to be together despite Annie's hang ups about relationships. Lora Leigh's Christmas Heat rocked my belief that just because you know someone belongs with you doesn't mean they can't be taken away from you in an instant. Noble Chavin nearly lost his mate to bomb explosion and he's determined not to let anything or anyone get in his way again. Haley McQuire has wanted Noble from the first time she's layed eyes on him. Haley's life hangs in the balance because of what she knows. Can Haley really stay away from Noble? Will Haley admit her feelings for Noble? Can Noble do the same? Christmas Bree by Erin McCarthy and Sweet Dreams by Linda Winstead-Jones are two uniquely crafted stories that tug at your heartstrings. Both women don't want anything to do with men yet uniquely attracted to them anyway.

Ms. Leigh's Breeds story was my favorite followed closely by Ms. Singh's story. Ms. McCarthy's story was good and finally Ms. Jones' story was good but strange. A good read for anytime of year. Bunny
