Good things always come in threes—and this paranormal romance anthology featuring steamy stories from New York Times bestselling authors Kresley Cole, Larissa Ione, and Gena Showalter is no exception!
Get ready for a collection chock full of vamps, demons, aliens, and plenty of sizzle!
In Kresley Cole’s celebrated story “The Warlord Wants Forever,” the first in her scorching Immortals After Dark series, vampire warlord Nikolai Wroth will stop at nothing to claim his Bride, the one woman who can make his heart beat again. But can beautiful Myst the Coveted accept an enemy vampire as her own?
Tehya has spent the last twelve years as an accidental wolf, but is truly a vampire at heart. When she gets injured, Lobo sneaks her inside MoonBound’s headquarters and nurses her back to health…with potentially deadly consequences. Desire collides with danger in “Forsaken by Night,” a MoonBound Clan novella from Larissa Ione!
In Gena Showalter’s Otherworld Assassins novella, Dark Swan, Lilica Swan isn’t quite human or otherworlder; she is the best—and worst—of both. She is willing to do whatever proves necessary to save her sister from the seductive and deadly Alien Investigation and Removal agent, Dallas Gutierrez, even bond her life to his…effectively wedding him. But without consummation, the bond will fade. Can Dallas resist his insatiable desire for the powerful beauty? Or will she lead to his ultimate downfall?

Quickie Review

 This anthology has three pretty great novellas.  And it makes me want to read more of the series they are a part of.

This was my second time reading The Warlord Wants Forever. I love this world, and loved it just as much through the second read through. The characters are great, and I still felt that yearning for more when it was over.

I’ve never read anything by Larissa Ione before, but I want to go grab the first book in this series. This can be read as a stand alone, and it makes you want more of the world.  I loved the romance, and the world building. It’s a different twist on vampires that I’ve never read before. I loved every second of it.

I’ve read Showalter’s YA books, but haven’t read any in the adult genre. Dark Swan definitely made me want to read the rest of the series. The chemistry is off the charts. And I liked learning little tidbits about the different types of otherworlders. I’ll be picking these up so I can get more!
