Book Description

Meet three men without boundaries, hell-bent on satisfying their deepest desires—and those of the women who drive them wild

The Howling by Erin McCarthy

When Liv Lugaru’s boyfriend Sebastian disappears, she finds comfort in his brother’s arms. But Sebastian is much closer than Liv realizes…and he’ll stop at nothing to protect her from the feral danger that comes alive only when she sleeps…

Smoke On The Water by Bianca D’Arc

In the misty fog of a lakefront village, zombies are roaming wild—and zombie hunter John Petit must stop the carnage. John is also fighting a different kind of battle: a forbidden passion for his new partner, Donna. With her help, killing zombies is a walk in the park, but keeping his desire in check is making him sweat…

Redeeming The Wizard by Jennifer Lyon

Gage Remington was once a powerful wizard; now he’s a recluse who keeps the world at bay. But when Mira Tate arrives at Gage’s door, she stirs in him an attraction he can’t deny. Soon, Gage will risk everything to keep Mira close—even the secret that may be his ruin…

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Only "Redeeming the Wizard" by Lyon (aka Jennifer Apodaca) stands out in this paranormal romance anthology. Anchor author McCarthy (Hard and Fast) opens with "The Howling," featuring a young woman who dreams about a bride devoured by werewolves. Deceit, betrayal, and hot sex aren't enough to overcome the lack of world-building and humor. In "Smoke on the Water," D'Arc (Inferno) partners a government agent with a woman immune to a zombifying disease and sends them to track down and stop its crazed creator. Whatever heat they generate is mitigated by the decided unsexiness of the shambling undead. Lyon (Soul Magic) rescues the anthology with complex characterization and vivid descriptive imagery. The compelling romance between a woman trying to save her kidnapped grandmother and the reclusive wizard she blames for her parents' death is worth the price of admission all by itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun romantic fantasies September 2, 2010
"The Howling" by Erin McCarthy. Liv wonders whether she should delay her marriage to Scarborough as she still loves his brother Sebastian, who obviously rejected her having vanished with her money six months ago. While Scarborough flies to New York on business, Sebastian runs as a wolf while healing from when his sibling tried to kill him. He vows to return to lead his pack, but is angry with Liv for moving in with his brother.

"Smoke on the Water" by Bianca D'Arc. Donna is immune to the zombie contagion so has been partnered with veteran CIA operative John. They head to Tennessee to conduct undercover surveillance of Elizabeth who allegedly created the disease. John and Donna pretend to be newlyweds on a fishing vacation as the lodge next door makes observation easier. They begin to fall in love but neither knows where Elizabeth conceals her horde.

"Redeeming the Wizard" by Jennifer Lyon. Mira hates Gage the wizard who she blames him for the deaths of her parents, killed by trolls while visiting him seventeen years ago. Still she needs his help when a wizard kidnapped her matchmaking Gram. He asks what she offers in payment and she responds with anything he desires. Seventeen years ago Gage trusted his apprentice Jillian who seduced him and stole some of his power when she tried to bring over a demon, but lost control. The demon killed Mira's parents. Gage killed Jillian and banished the demon, but his power overloaded and fried to unusable. As they fall in love he remains her enemy.

The male leads know what they want and go after the women they want while the fantasy elements are cleverly designed to feel genuine although the story lines are thin.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Beast Within September 15, 2010
Though only one of the heroes is truly `beastly', The Beast Within offers three quickies heavy on the steam with a touch of the paranormal.

Erin McCarty's "The Howling- A women who is engaged to the brother of the man who abandoned her and stole her money is reconsidering her wedding plans after dreaming that she is a bride who is literally thrown to the wolves, causes ~~ I really didn't like the dream sequences in Erin McCarty's story "The Howling", and never managed to feel really connected to the pair in the main story line.

Bianca D'Arc's "Smoke on the Water" -A woman who became part of the zombie hunting team because of her immunity to the disease which makes their bite and scratches so lethal, tries to prove herself to her partner who is a true warrior. She gets the chance to show her true worth when the pair go undercover to try and capture the zombies' creator. ~~ I liked this story better. Connected to D'Arc's zombie hunter series, both characters were appealing and there was a good amount of action.

Jennifer Lyon's "Redeeming the Wizard"- A woman with good reason to hate a reclusive wizard needs his help to rescue her kidnapped grandmother.~~ Out of all of the three stories, I liked this one the most. I really like wizards and Lyon's gives her wizard a sensual intensity that's hard to resist, but be forewarned the balance between story and steamy stuff definitely favors the steamy stuff, the pair hook up early and often.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it!! September 5, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I can't believe I anticipated this release. The stories were not engaging at all. The Kindle price is also way over-inflated. Do not waste your time or your money.
