4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly hits but an obvious miss, 29 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Dead After Dark (Dark-Hunter World) (Kindle Edition)
"Dead After Dark" is an anthology featuring 4 authors well established in the fantasy romance genre.

Shadow of the Moon by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Part of the Dark-Hunter world, wolf shifter Fury is caught in a scheme that could threaten his kind and unfortunately his enemies include Angelia; the young human/wolf shifter he once considered his only friend. They may be enemies but they have a history, and despite the threat Angelia poses Fury wants nothing more than to protect her.

I'm a huge fan of the Dark-Hunter universe and this short story certainly adds to the series. Expect the standard passion, quips and explosive action this author normally delivers. 4 stars

The Story of Son by J R Ward
Workaholic Claire reluctantly visits the wealthy Miss Leeds over the weekend intending to redraft her will. Instead Claire is drugged and awakens locked in the basement. But she is not alone; Miss Leed's unusual son has been hidden away for decades and requires blood donors when he needs to feed. Claire is rightly terrified, but trapped with the vampire she names Michael, she finds herself drawn to him and plans to help him escape his captivity.

Although Michael is a vampire and the story is set in Caldwell, this reads like a standalone novella with no ties to the "Black Dagger Brotherhood" series. Michael is a wonderful hero and Claire doesn't stand a chance. 4 stars

Beyond the Night by Susan Squires
It's been nearly 15 years since Andrew Cooper set foot in his home town. He has become independently wealthy and adopting a new persona, Drew is determined to marry Emily, the beautiful daughter of the local lord. Then a lowly groom, Drew never stood a chance and was punished for his infatuation. He's bought Ashland, a local manor and sets about his plans, only to have them thwarted by Freya; a beautiful vampire who insists his new home is actually still hers.

There is an interesting take on vampirism and the role Freya played in vampire society plus her growing relationship with Drew is sweet. 4 stars

Midnight Kiss Goodbye by Dianne Love
I absolutely love the "Belador Code" series this author has created with Sherrilyn Kenyon. Unfortunately though the phenomenal heroine of this series; Evalle Kincaid, only makes a brief appearance. Unfortunately this was not the only disappointment. I found the lead lovers; Trey (a Belador) and Sasha (a witch) rather flat. The story line failed to excite despite the involvement of witches, gods, a trapped warrior race and a couple of my favourite Beladors from the full length novels. A generous 3 stars
