I love Angela Knight - just adore her!! And she's done it again - while in mourning awaiting Master of Dragons I ordered 'Over the Moon'. OMG, the Burning Moon story was just so hot!! Steamy in the extreme, with a sexy alpha, a fabulously strong heroine, and a baddy to make you wanna scream!! Loved it, devoured it - fab!!

Not read any Virgina Kantra before. It was good - I love stories about the Sidhe, the Dark Hunt, etc and it was good. Possibly not a fully rounded story, but it was ok,

MaryJanice Davidson always makes me laugh, and this combination of a vampire and a werewolf made me laugh!! Not as sexy as the other stories, but a good read!

Sunny - well never read any of her stuff, but the reason I am logged onto Amazon is to get hold of as much of her stuff as I can find!!! Holy sh!t, the writing is hot, the story pulled me in - wow!! Very similar to Laurel K Hamilton's Merry Gentry series - very very similar - but the sex is hotter, WAY hotter!! Can't wait to get the rest of her stuff and very impressed.

All in all, a very good read, a lovely way to spend a Saturday evening, and a keeper for me!

I used to hate anthologies, the stories were too short and underdeveloped and then along came Ellora's cave anthology 'Primal Heat' and I was hooked. I bought this book because of Angela Knight and MaryJanice Davidson, whose works I'm a huge fan of. I also love werewolf stories so this was a perfect read.

Angela Knight's offering, 'Moon Dance' is set in her Direkind universe and showed the predjudice of the Direkind of those born furry towards those bitten. Police officer, Lucas Rollings meets a member of the Direkind aristocracy, Elena Livingston when she asks him to be her protector and formally seek his help from her would be suitor chosen by her father, who wants the prestige of being related by marriage to her family and is pysically abusive to her. She needs to get pregnant, and she wants Lucas to be the father.

Elena can't stand the bigotted, heavy handed wolf her father wants her to mate, who is only interested in the prestige of her family and seeks someone who won't be caught up in Direwolf politics. She's in her burning moon (in heat). As always sexy, funny and entertaining as only Ms Knight knows how to write.

MaryJanice Davidson - 'Driftwood', features one of her Wyndham werewolves, Burke, and Serena Crull a vampire who wants revenge on the vamp who killed her best friends during the 60's. We also find out that the Wyndams, Jeannie and Micheael don't belive in Vampires!

Virginia Kantra story 'Between the Mountain and the Moon' takes off about twenty years after the story in her novella 'Midsommer Nights Magic' where a the main characters mother Jean, finds her former lover has been kidnapped by the Fae and she has to win him back. In this story the Fae Queen who is still upset at losing her lover, sends a part fae man called Rhys to trick Jean's daughter Cait,into a magical enslavement.

Sunny's story (yep no last name) contained a whole lot of themes and ideas pretty blatantly lifted from Laurell K Hamilton's characters. But having said this it was intriguing enough for me to order the first book in her 'Mona Lisa' series after reading this story. The Monere (there is an accent over the first e in Monere) are a people who originate from the Moon. Mona Lisa finds out that she is a Monere and part human, the Monere society is ordered like an insect society in that the women are Queeens and the men serve them. The story in this anthology is set after the first book in Sunny's series, but it's OK for the reader to jump in in the middle of this story, since the back story is explained. On Sunny's website she says she's a huge Hamilton fan and it shows. The main character Mona Lisa, has a continuent of guards, some of whom she is sleeping with and there is another character who is enamoured of her who is too dangerous for her to get involved with (remember Jean-Claude from the early Anita Blake novels). There are definite similarities to the Merry Gentry novels,with the 'darkness' of the early Anita novels thrown in.

A great read.

"Over the Moon" is a collection of four paranormal romances written by some firm favourites of mine.

Moon Dance by Angela Knight
As a member of the Chosen (the royalty of the werewolf world) Elena Livingston is expected to accept the bigoted man her father has selected for her and tolerate the physical abuse her future husband will inflict. Instead Elena locates Lucas Rollings, a Bitten cop and formally requests he not only protect her, but impregnate her as well.

Between the Mountain and the Moon by Virginia Kantra
This story is the sequel to "Midsummer Night's Magic" found in the anthology "Man of My Dreams" and is the tale of Caitlin, the daughter of Janet and the man she saved from the Sidhe sacrifice, Ross. The Sidhe Queen is still intent on revenge and so targets Caitlin, ordering her half human son Rhys to bind her with enchantment.

Driftwood by Mary Janice Davidson
When Vampire Serena Crull falls into a grave, werewolf Burke Wulftaur does the gentlemanly thing and jumps in with her. Suddenly Serena finds herself closely closeted with a claustrophobic werewolf, who accidentally thinks he's buried her alive when the full moon rises. Returning to unearth the woman he believes he's killed, Serena firmly dispels this notion by promptly feeding from him when freed. She may be too hungry to realise who he is, but Burke immediately realises she is the one.

Mona Lisa Three by Sunny
I've got to say that I only purchased this book to get my hands on Sunny's Mona Lisa story as I find this series absolutely fascinating (despite it's similarities to other well established series). In this short story, whilst Mona Lisa prepares to move to her appointed territory of New Orleans, she faces not only a demon dead Monere Queen, but also her heartless mother, Mona Sera, a powerful Queen who commands her to heal her warrior, the victim of a Hellhound attack.

This is a good anthology and certainly offers a variety of werewolf themed stories, from the more traditional full moon wolf change to a Sidhe enchantment, and from a light hearted pairing of two supernatural species to the dark world of the Monere in which a warrior is savagely attacked. With very different approaches, each author has produced a well thought out and intriguing plot resulting in an entertaining read.

Very Impressive stories. Although I bought this book because it had a story by Mary Janice Davidson in it, it has introduced me to Angela Knight as well so a very good buy indeed. I love all the stories in this book, some more than others but still highly recommended for the genre

Summary: Two Hot, One Not, and One So What?

Review: A lover of HOT romance from United Kingdom.

This is a collection of four hot short stories.

The best two are "Moon Dance" by Angela Knight and "Driftwood" by Mary Janice Davidson (I love those Wyndham werewolves!). Both stories are fast and fun, and you find yourself rooting for the good guys and falling in love with the "Hero", and cheering for the heroins, who both happen to be "real" women trying to save themselves rather than waiting for the hero.

"Between the Moon and the Mountain" was a bit slow. I didn't know why the troubled hero fell so in love with "Caitlin" and the love scene left alot to be desired. Still, a nice quick romance.

"Mona Lisa Three" by "Sunny" was just another Laurel K Hamilton sex story. If this wasn't written by her, (Laurel K), "Sunny" should find a better Author to immitate! This could have been Anita or Meredith, and was s about as erotic, sexy and romantic as a dead dog.

It was worth buying for Angela Knight and Mary Janice Davidson who never fail to deliver.

I really enjoyed this selection of stories, a good collection, not requiring you to know much about the world they come from. A pleasant introduciton to some new authors to try.
