I'm not a huge fan of these anthologies. I prefer the slower burn of a full novel or a series. But I pull them out occasionally in wave of nostalgia. Remember being a kid and sneaking a romance novel into the cart and thinking you pulled a fast one on your parent? Ha.

Winter Born is ok. Their relationship isn't based on a whole lot. I get the feeling she could have waited around a bit longer and found someone just as handsome to marry, but whatever.

Born of the Night- skipped. Basic boring abduction turned romance. He didn't even wait until the second time he tackled her to spring a boner. Hard pass.

Make It Last Forever is my real issue. L.A. Banks almost snagged a fan out of me. I fell in love with Tara as quickly as Rider did. She has the mystical side of a Seer with gentle words and kind eyes. Too bad she was fridged for Rider's destiny. Hey female writers, how about we stop pulling this sh**?

Sorry Red Moon Rising. You get the short end of the stick for being at the end. I'm throwing this book out and not reading you. ( )

Winter Born - Sherilyn Kenyon
In its favor, this was set at Dragon*Con. This is obviously part of a larger universe, one I have little to no interest in ever investigating. They have werepanthers--the Katagaria who are panthers who can take human form and Arcadian who are humans who can take panther form, and whose males become impotent with any other woman other than their mate. They have a giant goth dude (and hunter of some sort) named Acheron Parthenopaeus and his daughter Simi who seems to be a demon. And, one of my favorite things, constant references to "males" and "females." *gag* Someone was very influenced by Anne Bishop, methinks.

Born of the Night - Amanda Ashley
I couldn't finish this story. I just couldn't do it. See, this guy kidnapped this chick because her father killed his father and he wanted revenge. But he's a werewolf, so was his father, so when the chick's father killed his father he also skinned him and wears his fur as a cloak. Instead of escaping when she has the chance the chick sticks around because she's in love or something. I don't know, it was awful.

Make it Last Forever - LA Banks
I, um, fell for this so hard. SO HARD. A badass white biker with a heart of gold and a black and American Indian seer with a bad secret in need of desperate help. See, there was this moment where Tara was dirty and tired and Jack wanted to give her all the "woman things" she might need but had no idea what those would be, and among them he bought conditioner and a comb and Tara knew he knew nothing about her hair and how it would break that comb but she loved him for wanting to try. Then she asked him to wash her hair and that was the most erotic and romantic scene in the story. Jack and Tara don't get quite the happy ending I wanted for them but they both get something very special. This is the reason I sought out LA Banks' series, to see what happened to Jack and that love and longing they shared.

Red Moon Rising - Lori Handeland
The skinwalker was exactly who I thought it was, and this reminded me of another, very similar, story. (Mercy Thompson, to be clear.) Then there was some sort of secret society who hunted and killed evil supernatural beings and Maya the writer ended up joining it to save her own life and to stay with Clay, the guy she fell in love with. Didn't much care for it, it reminded me far too much of a Mercy plotline and for some reason Maya and Clay didn't gel for me. That surprised me considering how much I enjoyed Lori Handeland's other short story. ( )

I only read Winter Born out of the book. But, Since I am in LOVE with the dark hunters. I think the play on fear was amazing with Dante and I love love love Pandora ( )

Still an interesting series. Each story seems to be moving the plot forward. ( )

Pandora and Dante were fun! I don't like the novellas as much..they're too short and I would have liked to see the story develop more. I liked Dante in Sins of the Night, so would have enjoyed seeing his story as a full-length novel. ( )
