Description

Just in time for the scariest season of all, three popular paranormal authors come together to tell original tales of romance where anything can happen under a Halloween moon . . .

Tempers flare and passions rise in Jocelynn Drake’s Of Monsters and Men as the local werewolf pack clashes with the Winter Court’s Wild Hunt . . .

In Terri Garey’s The Ghoul Next Door, a witch and a warlock battle it out for possession of a haunted house, but the ghost may have her own agenda . . .

And, in Trick or Treathen by Caris Roane, a master vampire struggles to stay away from the mortal woman who enflames his very soul.

Review

OF MONSTERS AND MEN by Jocelynn Drake

For an anthology that is supposed to be romance driven, there is very little of the promised ‘passion’ going on between Gage and Trixie save some making out and  references to sex. Beyond that little bit of false advertising, Gage made a few illogical decisions while trying to protect the werewolf pack resorting to magic when he didn’t need to. Overall, Gage came off as less confident in himself than in the full length ANGEL’S INK which made this story much less satisfying that it should have been..

Sexual Content: Kissing, references to sex
Rating: 2/5

THE GHOUL NEXT DOOR by Terri Garey

Now here was a story that delivered on a very sweet and natural feeling romance, while serving up.an action packed short story with an intense final battle I was impressed with how Garey created all of this mythology and history around the plot without making it too confusing. The romance between Cassie and Falco felt very organic and you could see how well the fit together both in personality and in their magical abilities. My only gripe with this story was that I wanted it to be longer so we could delve even more into this world.

TRICK OR TREATHEN by Caris Roane

This was the steamiest of the three stories with more sex scenes than I expected for a short story. While the romance was intense, I was a little annoyed that they spent so much time on their romantic tryst when Treyne and Jenna should have been more focused on trying to save Jenna’s sister from a rival vampire. As a result, the ending felt rushed and dissatisfying.

Sexual Content: Multiple sex scenes
Rating: 3/5
