Apologies, but I did not read this book in full, as too many of the authors were unknown, and of those that I do read, I wasn't able to get into the LA Banks tale, which was disappointing, as I only ended up reading three novellas.

Sookie's tale was not entirely believable, as her adventures with Pam were so out of character, and Erik, overbearing and protective lover that he is, would never have allowed her to go on a mystery mission/vacation without him, and to be placed in danger. Lapdancing, poledancing and lesbianism hints - SO not Sookie. 2*

Cat and Bones - an excellent tale, in which we see the leads on vacation, but having to pull bodyguard duty to a young spolied heiress who takes a fancy to bones. We also see Bones and Jasmina getting on a touch better together, and the latter starting to accept her life as a vampire. Add in the romance between Cat and Bones and a couple of really hot sex scenes, and this is a 5* novella that tides the reader over til the Feb2011 release of the next full-length tale.

Katie Macalister takes you on a riot of a tale with Effrajim - Jim - from the Aisling Grey novels. Aisling, Drake and twins are off on a cruise, so Jim gets left with a sitter, and is to be taken to Paris to see his true love, Cecile, but things don't go to plan. The sitter's evil assistant banishes him to the Akasha in human form, complete with 'unimpressive package', and it's up to Jim to find his way out, meeting various trials and truibulations.
