4.0 out of 5 stars For the Breed Fans November 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Obviously the minute I got this I moved to the Inconvenient Mate story featuring Lora Leigh's Breeds. Many fans of the Breeds have been buzzing about this story...so here is the information:

I couldn't remember running into Malachi in other stories (let me know if you remember which ones he is in). Malachi is coyote. He meets Isobel when he goes with Ashley, Rule and Stygian to meet with the Navajo Nation. They are searching for one breed (I think this stems from Caleb's story)and two human women (one they refer to as Christine Roberts who may be the 'Honor Roberts' they have mentioned in Aiden's story who potentially may be related to Amburg possibly). They think the Navajo nation knows where they are and the breeds are trying to find them.

Really this story furthers the plot and sets up future stories. Lawe and Diana are briefly mentioned as already mated...I think it might set up Stygian's story as well (for some reason I think he might have Honor Roberts as his mate-but as always I could be wrong).

The story itself is good...but very short (hence the antho). It kind of reminded me of Creed's story in Primal. I think that it is definitely worth the read because Lora Leigh does use it to set up/continue plots.

My thoughts.....

Do all the stories have to rock, or is one good one enough to make up for something poorer? Does it matter if they fit a theme? Does it have to hurt is something is outside a genre I might normally like? And my biggie...if a story is part of a series, will I want to go read the series? Or if it's a series I already follow, is it a worthy entry?

Basically I mentally try and give each story a yes or no vote and figure out if the end tally comes closest to 100/80/60/40/20 consistent with the 5 star system in place, while taking the above into consideration.

Also, I normally don't give too much of a plot summary--it gets tiresome when other reviewers and/or the book blurb do a great job. I did notice one review was full of factual errors (HK)...but the others (look at Melindeeloo particularly) do a great job, which is good as this book's 'publisher's blurb' is terribly empty.

The cover implies a running holiday theme...the holidays were the backdrop for several, but honestly there is one story I can't even remember the link. I also thought theme-wise, this anthology was highly variable. Historical/near-future/alternate modern, and peppered with Angels (fallen and otherwise), vampire kin, wolf kin and the Breeds. Kind of all over, but the variety was interesting. I'm not sure other than the bare hint of holiday exactly how these were chosen, but I did enjoy them, so not a big deal in the final count.

So...the stories.

1. Upon A Midnight Clear--this one was the toughest for me to decide on. I've yet to get hooked on the historical era novels (this was 1792-1810s if I did the math right--can't call that Regency right?), and the Fallen Angel theme has also been one I've not gotten into as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Holiday feel to the stories December 21, 2011
Format:Paperback
There are four stories in this anthology of romance.

The Stories
Virginia Kantra's Upon a Midnight Clear is an historical romance some years after the French Revolution. A decision made by an angel to rescue a girl from Madame Guillotine results in his becoming Fallen although he later finds Aimée surviving as an unpaid drudge in her cousin's house when Lucien arrives to court the daughter of the house for her dowry. A cute romance that could have stood more work. That or it needed to become a full-length story as Kantra simply dropped us into situations without developing them. It's all just too easy.

Kimberly Frost's First Light was a rather unique perspective on angels with this time traveling angel attempting to resolve an centuries-old feud Definitely an interesting romantic conflict with both parties thinking they knew the other but had no idea how or where. Frost did a nice job in creating an alternate world with few words and creating tension although the ending seemed too abrupt. I'd like to see if this is a series.

Eileen Wilks' Human Error occurs less than two months after the events in Death Magic (World of the Lupi, Book 8) with Benedict going to spend the Yule holidays with Arjenie's Wiccan family. It's a bit of an uphill row for Benedict as they can't explain about the mate bond and various members of the family are angry at him; they believe he has used some sort of juju to enthrall Arjenie into doing as he wants. All it takes is a short battle with Coyote and a humongous bear to bring the family 'round.

I like that Benedict is concerned about what his clothes will say culturally to Arjenie's family.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - Fortunately, it's what's inside that counts November 1, 2011
Format:Paperback
Do not let the cheesy cover, with the decapitated stubbly man torso and the strategicly placed bow, tempt you into passing on Tied with a Bow. If you do you will be missing out on a collection of stories both ultra spicy and sweet, and some tidbits from Lora Leigh's and Eileen Wilks' established series mixed in with some promising starts to series in brand new worlds from Virginia Kantra and Kimberly Frost.

The stories in the order that I read them...

Human Error by Eileen Wilks - World of the Lupi connected novella- Benedict goes home with Arjenie to meet her family and to celebrate Solstice and the "grand explosion of culturally sanctioned greed" (aka Christmas - 109 pages) - I never read anthologies in order, and being a huge Lupi fan I couldn't wait and jumped straight into the Benedict and Arjenie short - I love those Lupi males and Arjenie is charming in her own oddball way as well - this story had a nice amount of mayhem in the background and the pair's now solid bond made me want to go back and reread the last book, Blood Challenge (The World of the Lupi, Book 7).

An Inconvenient Mate by Lora Leigh - Breed's novella - Coyote Breed Malachi finds his mate at an inconvenient time but will wait no longer to make her his - I generally like Breed shorts, since Leigh normally tones the erotism down in a bit from her full length novels. This time though her story had all of the 'language'(and fluids) which will be nothing new to Breeds fans, but are what keep me from jumping on the Breed bandwagon even though Leigh's background plots are good.
