I bought this primarily for the Jeaniene Frost tale, which was about 157 pages long, the longest (and best) tale at about half of the book. It's a brand new world where there are Partials (part human and part demon to varying degrees, living on earth), whom the Purebloods (pure demons) are trying to wipe out, and the Fallen (angels, but not as we know them, definitely not! Thought to be extinct). Partials live on earth and can enter the realm of Nocturna where Purebloods dwell by way of portals, but weirdly the main portals in this tale were via a dumpster at the back of a diner and via a sewerage treatment plant, which meant that the female lead, Mara, spent most of her time dirty and smelly, but managed to shower before getting together with the male lead, Raphael. His name conjured up a certain image even before I got to the revelation about him, and yes, he matched the description. A good tale, pretty hot, believable and yes, a definite HEA.

The Shayla Black tale is part of her Doomsday Brethren series, which I've not read before, in which the male lead, a magical warrior called Raiden tries to find and rescue the woman who is carrying his child, before handing her over to another man for safe-keeping. It's a very short tale and I think it would have helped if I'd understood the series, but basically Raiden is scared to allow himself to be with Tabby, as he has enemies and his job is hazardous, and he cannot allow himself to love - or so he tells himself. Not a bad tale, but far too rushed and where the characters found time to have sex on a desk when in mortal danger, with baddies hot on their tails...the book would have worked better as a slower, more fulfilling novel.

Surprisingly, the unknown-to-me author Sharie Kohler did IMHO the second best tale of the antho. It's about Lily who goes to a bar for the evening to let her hair down and have some naughty fun, but ends up getting bitten and infected with lycanthropy. She is then told that she needs to kill her Alpha, Luc, before she has her first change, to be able to change back into human. However, Luc is not her Alpha, despite what she has been told by the Hunters, and though she breaks into his lair and tries to kill him, she can't and he ends up nursing her through her Change and trying to find her Alpha to free her. When the time comes, she chooses Luc, Lycanthropy and Let The Good Times Roll. A decent tale that didn't feel quite as rushed.

Overall, good value for money, but not tales that will make their way onto my Keeper shelf; however, the way in which the last tale ended has made me want to find out more about the author's works. The JF tale did not feel like there would be more to follow, and I know that there are several more in the SB series, but I'm not really that fussed about tracking them down all that urgently...
