This book had a good mix of authors and stories. The characters were well developed for short stories and had some intense romance going.

This was a great anthology, featuring novellas for 3 series that I currently follow. The first was by Katie MacAlister called Shades of Gray. This is book 10.5 of the Dark Ones series and tells the story of Noelle, the Beloved who lost her Dark One to another in an earlier book in the series and Grayson. It was full of Katie MacAlister's famed snarky humor as Noelle tries very hard to convince Gray that she is his Beloved and isn't scared of the Demon Lord who has sworn to see Gray dead. The secondary characters are great as usual and provide wonderful comedy to offset Noelle and Gray's romance. The second novella is Undead Sublet by Molly Harper. This is the third novella in her Half Moon Hollow spin off series that originated with the Jane Jameson series. This novellas was great because we got to catch up on Jane, Gabriel, Zeb, Jolene, Andrea & Dick. in this novella, Tess, a Chicago chef, becomes so exhausted, that she swears the food is talking to her. She is put on "sabbatical" and decides to go visit her former mentor who had moved to Half Moon Hollow Kentucky. When Tess rents a house from a woman going through a divorce, she never expects to find out that she already has a roommate living in the basement - the woman's soon to be ex-husband turned vampire, Sam. The battle of wills as Tess and Sam each fight for the right to live in the house alone, by sabotaging the sleep and personal items of the other is too funny. I really enjoy going back to Half Moon Hollow and can't wait for another story in this series. The third novella is Out with a Fang by Jessica Sims. It is number 1.50 in her Midnight Liaisons series. Midnight Liaisons is a dating service for the paranormal community around Fort Worth Texas. I didn't really see where this novella fit in with the other 2 books in the series other than the couple, a Vamp and a Were-Jaguar, meet through the dating service. When we first meet Ruby, the were-jaguar, she is pining her lost love, a forbidden human that she had to break up with some 5 years before. She has finally decided to start dating again and is using Midnight Liaisons to find a match. Her first date is with a vampire who asks that she be blindfolded while they talk and get to know one another. What happens is a little bit predictable, but the story kept my interest enough to get through.  Overall, this was a really good book, especially since I am reading all 3 of the series these novellas are part of. Since the stories were novellas, they were easy, fast reads. I would recommend to anyone reading the Dark Ones, Half Moon Hollow or Midnight Liaisons series.

I enjoyed these three novellas featuring the Dark Ones, Half-Moon Hollow, & Midnight Liaisons series. I read these novellas a long time ago way before I started reviewing and I remembered a little of what was going on. It was nice to re-read them. It made me want to re-read the Dark Ones series and to read more of the Half-Moon Hollow series. The Midnight Liaisons novella in this anthology was a new to me author/series. It didn’t impress me enough to want to read more in the series. Shades of Gray (Dark Ones #10.5) by Katie MacAlister - Rated: 3.5 Stars It’s been awhile since I read the Dark Ones series. This novella was fun and I’m thinking I might go back and re-read the series. From what I remember in the series Noelle had a Dark One and is a Beloved, but it turned out she wasn’t that Dark One’s Beloved and her X feel for her roommate instead. In this novella she feels rejected and when she gets another chance at finding love in Grayson she’ll do what she can to protect and keep him. Even if you haven’t read the series the author does a good job of explaining what a Drak One is and all the steps in the joining process for Beloveds. Shades of Gray was a sweet and fun read. Undead Sublet (Half-Moon Hollow #2.5) by Molly Harper - Rated: 4 Stars I’ve just started to get back into the Half-Moon Hollow series. It’s light humor, fun, and enjoyable. I like Ms. Harper’s humor. In the Undead Sublet we have Tess a human and a chef. She’s overworked herself and other areas of her life aren't going so well, so she ends up taking a vacation to Half-Moon Hollow. Then there's Sam her unexpected roommate in the home she rents. These two don’t hit it off, but eventually they both find healing and what they need in each other. I love how Tess ends up falling in love with the town and starts to build an exciting future there, when she didn’t have plans to stay. Sam I loved him. He was sweet and kept Tess on her toes. Undead Sublet was a humorous, sweet, fun and enjoyable read. Out with a Fang (Midnight Liaisons #2.2) by Jessica Sims - Rated: 3 Stars This was a new to me author and series. We get a second chance love story. Well Ruby is a shifter and hasn't been able to find a date since she broke up with her X. Deep down she still loves him, but humans and supernaturals can’t date, one nights sure, but no permanent relationships allowed. What does she do, but turn to a dating agency and go on a blind date. Things get weird and unusual at the get go. This was a fast-paced story. The second chance at love comes quickly and they fall into bed fast. The vampires featured in this novella aren’t new. They are the dead ones with no beating hearts and can’t be out in the sun. All that typical vampire lore. Out with a Fang was just ok.

Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister Love this author. Her wit never fails to tickle me, causing inappropriate bursts of laughter when reading in public. So happy to see Noelle finally find her Dark One. She has had such a tough go of it being rejected by her first one. I loved Gray, he was so full of himself, serious and determine to save Noelle from himself. They are a great match, I hope we see them again in a future book. I would love to know more about Gray's father, hopefully he won't be stuck in his current form forever. This novella/short story was a great addition to the Dark Ones world. Undead Sublet by Molly Harper  While I have enjoyed the two books I have read of this author, this one would have been a hard to give 3 star. I liked the characters on their own and how Tess fit in with the others in this world, and I had lots of sympathy for Sam's situation. I did not care for how juvenile their behavior towards each other for much of the book. It made it really hard for me to see them fitting together. The book was really funny and I was all for them individually to get a happy ending and seeing them overcome their difficulty. I was satisfied with how they got together and I hope things work out in the long run. Will be interesting to see in future books what bumps in the road come up for the two of them. Did not read the last story because it is not an author or series I read, but hanging on to the book if that changes in the future.

The Undead in my Bed (2012) – Shades of Gray (Katie MacAlister), Undead Sublet (Molly Harper), Out with a Fang (Jessica Sims) . Once again here is an anthology with stories that I don’t think are all deserving  of the same rating. The only author I actually really knew was Katie MacAlister, and while I thought she would be the standout for me it turns out I was wrong.  . While I did like all of the stories included here the first two seemed to start out a bit slow and kind of choppy to me. They both would rate almost a 3 star. However the last story (and by an author I don’t know at all) was super good and was a 4 in my opinion. I will have to look further into Jessica Sims and see what else she has out there. .  Not only was the story the best but it also happened to be the shortest. That usually means it wouldn’t be as good or complete as it could have been. In this case the author did a stupendous job and it was both really good and felt totally complete. If you read it you will notice a technique that helped very quickly establish the characters and ensuing relationship so that the short length didn’t become an insurmountable (and unbelievable) problem.  . All these stories would have made fine books on their own in a larger form. The last, while pretty wonderful as it was, would have been a can’t put down-stay up all night book.
