Cynthia Eden is one of my favorite authors as well as being just truly one of the nicest people in the biz. I devoured her story in When He Was Bad so when I saw she had another antho coming out with Shelley Laurenston (another favorite) I was all over it.
Laurenston’s dragons lead off the anthology and I have to say up front that I’m not really a dragon shifter fan. Very few authors can make it work in a way I really enjoy and Shelley is one of them. In Can’t Get Enough Laurenston gives us more of her fabulous dragons, this time with Ailean (the slag, the wicked, depending on who is talking, LOL) and Shalin the Innocent. As usual, while Laurenston creates a sexy hero, it’s her heroines who just leap off the page and Shalin was tough and funny and all kinds of grumpy, defensive, smart, cranky and the perfect fit for Ailean.
Cynthia Eden has the sweet spot in the middle with Spellbound. The witches in Serena’s coven are being murdered and she’s got no other choice but to summon the big bad, um assasin. Wonderful chemistry, great worldbuilding details, well done! I need to start bugging her to see when she’ll be expanding on that world because I want more.
Noelle Mack anchors the closing spot with Turn Me On – an unusual take on paranormal I haven’t seen before featuring light and energy and an interesting mix of innocence and age old wisdom all at once.
