Format: Paperback
"Born to Bite" is a sensual supernatural anthology featuring stories from talented authors Hannah Howell, Diana Cosby, and Erica Ridley. Early 1500's Scotland is the setting for Hannah Howell's "Dark Secret". Murdina Dunbar, homeless and without family, travels far to find her aunt and uncle. Hoping to meet up with some cousins too, she finds her aunt and uncle have passed away, and all her hopes for a family reunion are buried along with them in a cold, windy graveyard. With nowhere else to turn, Murdina accepts a position as a maid in the local keep, working hard and trying to find out about her cousin Adeline. Chosen to be the personal maid for the handsome and mysterious Sir Baldwin, Murdina finds herself irresistibly drawn to the darkly appealing nobleman. Sir Baldwin is actually Gillanders MacNachton, staying at the keep in hopes of finding out who murdered a member of his clan. Gillanders is no mere mortal, and Murdina has a secret of her own: she can read the thoughts of others. Realizing Murdina is his fated mate, he wonders if she will accept his true nature. Others do not wish for a happy ending for these two, and much mayhem is about in the keep. Gillanders and Murdina are more connected than they could have imagined, and it is a perilous bond indeed. Medieval Scotland is the era for Diana Cosby's "Highland Vampire". Drawn to a ceremonial stone circle by a compelling voice invading her mind, Rowan Campbell discovers a dying warrior. Aedan MacGregor, Laird of the Highland Vampire Coven, has been betrayed and left to burn in the searing rays of the rising sun. Unable to resist his allure, Rowan leads Aedan to the safety and darkness of a cave, and later allows him to drink a few drops of her blood to restore his strength.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
The first story was interesting. the phonetic use of the Scottish accent got "verra" annoying after a while. I am not a fan, but it may not bother you. It could be a good series, but I am not all that inspired to find out. It kind of reminded me of Christine Feehan's work.The second story moved ridiculously fast. Way to much information and not enough development of characters. But at least the Scottish accent was toned down. I don't see myself reading anything from this author. And last but in no way least, the third story is my favorite. It takes place in England so although our vampire is technically Scottish there are no Brogues to speak of. Quick, witty, and silly this is definitely a series I can see myself getting into. It had a definite Alexia Tarabotti feel to it, and since Gail Carriger has ended that series this may just be able to fill that hole for me.

Format: Paperback
Rowan Campbell had been labeled a witch by those who only believed what they wanted. Rowan was told that vampires were mythical until the day she saved Aedan MacGregor, Laird of the Highland Vampire Coven from imminent death.

Aedan believes Rowan to be his mate regardless that she is human and he is determined to protect and save her. There is nothing simple and uncomplicated about their relationship and the longer they are together the more issues arise. Everything stands in the way of their love including the vampire and Fey community of which Rowan it seems belongs.

Rowan craves Aedan's love and he in return knows his existence is futile without her. However, those out to stop the relationship and their entire known life will not want stop hunting until they are destroyed. But is the enemy from the outside or could it be from within?

Diana Cosby writes a colorful, romantic, and action packed story. Ms Cosby leaves the reader with the feeling of overwhelming literary satisfaction.

Format: Kindle Edition
Born to Bite a collection of historical short reads Dark Secret from Hannah Howell, who tells a tale of orphan Murdina Dunbar who meets her Dark Lord posing as Sir Gillanders Baldwin while working as his maid per the lady of the house instructions. Both most flee the castle together and find out each other's true nature along the way.

Bookswagger Marcia: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. I was really invested in Dark Secret, it did not read like a short story Mrs. Howell gave it her all. I loved the peak the story gave us into the wellbeing of the MacNachtons. Murdina was a brave woman making her own way in a time that almost never happened. Sir Gillanders (read to find out his true identity) was a great and protective hero what we all want in our dark vampire heroes.
Bookswagger Danielle: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. I liked the mix of vampirism and emotions, I found it to be an interesting combination. The chemistry between Murdina and Gillanders was instantaneous and believable.

The second story is Highland Vampire by Diana Cosby. King of the Highland Coven of vampires Aedan Macgregor has finally met his mate. He assumed she was human but later discovered she was part fae. The penalty for turning a fae is immediate death but his enemies may leave him little choice.
Bookswagger Marcia: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger. This story had me truly invested, we spent almost the entire read with the couple, with a few complications which made the plot extra juicy, very well done especially in a short story. I mean we have fae, vampires, plots to overthrow the throne and people trying to kill a witch. This was an exciting read.
Bookswagger Danielle: Four crowns, good read on the way to swagger.
