Berkley Sensation really knows how to light up the Christmas season, with an anthology guaranteed to be on many a Christmas list this year! With four hot novellas by Lora Leigh, Nalini Singh, Erin McCarthy, and Linda Winstead Jones, THE MAGICAL CHRISTMAS CAT will thrill lovers of paranormal romance.

Each of the stories shares a common theme - they are all paranormal stories that center around a feline. Although three of them are part of series by those authors, each works well as a standalone story that will give new fans a tantalizing taste of those authors' work.

With four short stories that are big on romance, THE MAGICAL CHRISTMAS CAT is truly a gift for lovers of romantic fiction!


It is not unusual for a Changeling to recognize his mate the moment he sees her. When Zach meets his nephew's pretty teacher, Annie, he can't deny his reaction to her. Everything about her entices the man in him as well as the leopard.

But Annie is more than a little skittish, determined that any relationship will be short-term only. Zach must restrain himself in order to seduce her not only into his bed, but into his life forever.

I have loved every story in Nalini Singh's PSY/CHANGELING series so far, but I do believe that Zach and Annie's story is my new favorite! Everything about this tale totally worked for me.

Zach was true to his feline nature, with a personality that is a little bit sly, a lot playful, and a way about him that effortlessly wins the heart of both Annie and the reader. He faces every obstacle facing them with patient cunning, ultimately winning his heart's desire.

Annie is just a doll.

"Stroke of Enticement" by Nalini Singh

Having watched her mother's heart being broken continuously by her emotionally distant father, Annie Kildaire has convinced herself that long-term romantic relationships are not for her. All that changes when Zach Quinn walks into her classroom and promptly turns her world upside down. The sexy leopard changeling seems determined to wreak havoc on her senses, and Annie isn't so sure that's a bad thing.

The minute he sees his nephew's human teacher, Zach knows Annie is destined to be his mate. Both leopard and man are drawn to her beauty, strength, and intelligence. All he wants to do is claim Annie as his own. But Zach knows that to win over his cautious mate he'll have to entice her to trust him, and he'll use every sensual trick up his sleeve to do so.

Just when you think the Nalini Singh can't get any better, she serves up another amazing tale. "Stroke of Enticement" is a captivating story that grabbed me from the very first page and didn't let go.

Zach is the kind of hero I love to read and dream about - devastatingly handsome, charming, intelligent, protective, and slightly mischievous. He's possessive of Annie, not in a controlling way, but in such a way that made me sigh and wonder where I could find a hero like him. As for Annie, I utterly adored her. A childhood accident has left her with a slight physical handicap, but she never lets it stop her. She's strong in both body and mind. As she falls in love with Zach, I found she was strong of heart as well. Separately, they were endearing, but as a couple they wholly complimented one another. Their romance was the perfect combination of passion, tenderness, excitement, and fun.

"Stroke of Enticement" is part of Ms.

The Magical Christmas Cat? Really?

Was that the best the marketing department could come up with?

I can just see people from the publisher sitting around a table saying, "Well, let's see. The stories have all got magic and take place during Christmas. Oh, and all four of the stories involve a cat in some way. Whatever shall we call it?"

A hand smacks onto the table. "I'VE GOT IT."


On to the review.

This book is made up of four different stories by well-known authors in the paranormal romance genre: Lora Leigh, Nalini Singh, Erin McCarthy, and Linda Winstead-Jones.

If I was being completely impartial, this book really only deserved two and a half or three stars. The story by Linda Winstead-Jones ("Sweet Dreams") was decent, but not really suited to novella form. There was too much world-building smushed in, while the plot itself felt thin. It would have been much better suited to a novel, where the author could have plumped up the storyline and included the details about the warriors and the past souls that she clearly wanted to include. "Sweet Dreams" was mediocre at best.

Erin McCarthy's story, "Christmas Bree" was twee and saccharine and had me looking over hill and under dale to find the plot. After much searching, this is what I've determined: (WARNING: ZOMG, VAGUE SPOILERS. Also, indiscriminate usage of the word "hump.") Man shows up at door. Woman and man hump a lot. Through clumsy machinations of callous billionaire, woman and man buy a house together and live happily ever after. The entertainment factor in this novella was so low, I actually fell asleep TWICE while trying to finish it.

Wait!! Don't think I'm bitter and snarky!
