Got this for the Eve Dallas story. Eternity in Death is a story about a woman found exsanguinated and Eve coming to grips with the vampire wannabe subculture in her city. I liked it.

I'm pretty sure I came across Amy and the Earl's Amazing Adventure, still, not a bad story where Amy, an american on holidays in England and Simon, bartender and brother of the current earl are whisked into the past to fix issues and then to get back to the modern day. Falling in love along the way.

Timeless was a bit ho-hum. Woman finds herself in the past and looks just like a man's wife. She has to survive in the past and what happens when she returns. Didn't really strike me as a great story.

On the Fringe is a story of what-has-been where the ending kinda left me cold. I could see no reason why the characters did what they did or why they bothered with remaining in the situation they were in.

Overall it did what I wanted it to, provided me with a Eve Dallas story, the rest were kinda forgettable. ( )

I always buy these yearly anthologies simply for the new Eve Dallas/Roarke novella by J.D. Robb. She doesn't disappoint with ETERNITY IN DEATH, which centers around an evil psychopath who truly believes himself to be a vampire.

Mary Blayney's story, AMY AND THE EARL'S AMAZING ADVENTURE, actually didn't make much sense to me, and I didn't finish it.

Ruth Ryan Langan writes a really good Scottish time travel story with TIMELESS. Although I don't really like historicals, I enjoyed this short story.

ON THE FRINGE by Mary Kay McComas is another time travel, about a wife who wonders what life would have been like if she'd made different choices and decisions.

DEAD OF NIGHT is worth the read simply for J.D. Robb's story, but TIMELESS is also a pretty good read. ( )
