Neal discovers her touch can sooth the pain inside him, yet Viviana has no idea she isn't human. 3 stars

Red Angel by Deirdre Knight
Part of "The Gods of Midnight" series Sunny has lived as a human and been Kate's friend for years. No one has any idea that Sunny is actually a Guardian Angel who destroys any demon foolish enough to attack her friend. James Angel can sense Sunny isn't human but has no idea just how sinful it will be to fall in love with a Heavenly Being. 4.5 stars
I find GS's romances entertaining and appealing, and "Ever Night" is no exception. The age difference is somewhat unconventional (Rose is still in her teens whilst Vasili is in his 30s) yet they work well together and Rose proves herself to be a mature and formidable heroine. "Red Angel" is also an excellent short fantasy story. Despite not reading anything before in this series, I found the characters quickly engaging and there was enough information in the story line to get a feel for what has happened in the past.
Unfortunately I am not a fan of JA'S "Final Prophesy" series. Although she takes a different approach in this short story it still didn't spark my interest and I found myself skimming pages to get on to the next short story. Likewise with "The Collector". This small anthology definitely starts and ends with a bang, but the stories in between failed to entertain.
At midnight, marking her eighteenth birthday, Rose Pascal finds herself transported to a dark dimension - a world ruled by a warrior king who hunts and kills her kind. King Vasili of the Northern Realm intends to use Rose for information on other Dimension Walkers. Every year, at midnight marking her birthday, Rose must return to "Nightmare". On her first trip Vasili interrogates her and informs Rose to learn how to fight dirty during the coming year, as well as to seek out information on others like her. On Rose's second trip, Vasili spars with Rose. She returns to her world beaten badly. But on her third trip, Rose and Vasili cannot deny the passion that consumes them both.
**** FOUR STARS! This story would make a terrific full-length novel. As a novella, it is just a bit unbelievable at times. Rose goes from pure hatred and disgust to undying love and adoration within a few short paragraphs. After first being scared for her life and next having to fight and being pummeled, I simply could not see love happening instantaneously. The ending seemed a bit too easy also. A great story with a terrific plot line, but had it been full-length it could have been more fully developed.
The Collector by Shannon K. Butcher
Neal Etan is a sentinel. Every night, for almost five hundred years, he has killed monsters. Upon his chest is a living mark, a tree that shows how much longer Neal will live. There are only enough leaves left for about a year. He could have as little as a couple of months of life left. He lives in constant pain. Few of his people ever find a female Theronai (his race) and even fewer find one that they are compatible with. Currently Neal seeks to acquire a powerful artifact to save his friend's life. The carved wooden box is in the possession of an antique dealer, Viviana Rowan. When Viviana touches Neal, his pain disappears; however, when she releases contact his pain returns even worse. When Synestryn demons begin hunting Viviana, Neal has no time to fully explain what is happening or who she really is. But the one thing Neal is certain of is that he wants to be part of her collection. A permanent part.
***** FIVE STARS! Absolutely perfect in every way. From the very beginning, to the very end I remained on the edge of my seat. Super Glue has nothing on the holding power of this story. Butcher is one amazing author! *****
Crystal Skull by Jessica Andersen
Archaeologist Natalie Albright finds a ruin deep in a rain forest south of the Mexican border. The save entrance is carved with images of winged, six-foot-tall demons. Within the cave Natalie discovers a small screaming-skull carved from a clear yellow crystal. It represents a group of warrior-magi who were supposed to save mankind from the rise of the demons at the end of 2012. The demons are real and they are massing for the 2012 doomsday war. But the magi who were supposed to protect the earth plane had all been killed in 1984. As more and more demons begin to attack, Natalie must team up with her ex to survive.
**** FOUR STARS! Now that the year 2012 has arrived more and more stories are being created with the Mayan doomsday legend as part of the plot line. I found this one to be well done; however, due to being novella-sized, the story felt rushed. Still, the author's writing talent shines through and readers will not be disappointed with them gem. ****
Red Angel by Deidre Knight
Jamie Angel, leader of the Nightshades, and his siblings use their various paranormal abilities to hunt every kind of monster and demon that roams the darkness. (There is now a cease-fire with vampires though.) Jamie is able to smell supernatural entities; however, when Sunny Renfroe enters his life the paramilitary man is stumped. Sunny is not human, but Jamie cannot identify exactly what she is. No one else senses anything odd about the lovely lady. Jamie decides to seduce the answers out of Sunny. Once he could prove that she was not human Jamie would destroy her. But his experiences could never have prepared Jamie for what Sunny really is.
**** FOUR STARS! This author proves that she is color blind by matching "a black chick and a white dude". Actual demon danger does not enter until late in the story, yet I never felt as if I were being cheated. Jamie's subterfuge, followed by the main couple trying to find a way around some impossible rules, kept me hooked. Very entertaining! ****
