Prepare yourselves for a sinfully delicious quartet of devilishly good stories. Four talented authors bring you quadruple the pleasure with vampires, shape-shifters, and demons galore.


Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil by Kim Harrison


Ivy Tamwood is much more than just her blood type. She is a woman on a mission to save her soul. Her roommate and lover Kisten knows her better than anyone, but being a living vampire is not easy in The Hollows. Being a living vampire investigating a string of murders while caught between the vamp she loves and the vamp she craves just means she’ll have to make some changes. Kim Harrison continues her series on The Hollows residents with this pre-Rachel look at vamp politics with Ivy and Kisten. As a fan of the series it was a pleasure to find out more about Ivy’s history. Just enough to intrigue and invite you to read the rest of the series. Clever and compelling.


The Claire Switch Project by Lynsay Sands

Scientist Claire Beckett becomes a victim of her own experiment when an accident in the lab leaves her with the ability to alter her shape at will. With her high school reunion looming on the horizon Claire’s new skill has delicious possibilities – especially when her best friend’s brother is to be her escort. Lynsay uses humor and high school angst to spice up her latest foray into the paranormal. Cute, filled with mischief and heart The Claire Switch Project will stimulate your imagination.


Chaotic by Kelley Armstrong


As a half-breed demon and tabloid reporter Hope is a magnet for trouble. No, really, she is. She has an affinity for chaos so when the museum gala she’s attending is robed by a werewolf Hope has no choice but to apprehend him—now all she has to do is hold on to him. Chaotic continues Kelley Armstrong’s successful saga featuring Women of the Otherworld. Smart, sassy dialogue and prose you can sink in drive this novella from beginning to end.


Dead Man Dating by Lori Handeland


Literary agent Mara Morelli’s life is turning into one of the books in her slush pile. First, it turns out that the first date she’s had in months is with a demon desperate to get into her pants. Then, a sexy demon hunter shows up to save the day. Only the plan is slightly off and unless they can kill the demon all hell is going to break loose. The ease with which this story captures your attention is equaled by the ease with which it will captures your heart.
