Headlining the collection is Angela Knight. Known for her Mageverse series and many other writings her story Blood and Roses is an interesting medieval vampire romance. Combining magic and vampires with what I think would be a pretty cool series realm this one was likable but a toddler character in the mix might be a turn-off and annoy readers. The hero and heroine have great chemistry for such a short story. The love scenes were memorable and quite spicy. 4/5 stars
Author of the popular Psy/Changelings and Guild Hunter series, Nalini Singh contributes a short story from the former. I've read other P/C short stories before but still haven't cracked the novels open. Whisper of Sin pairs a studly leopard with a sweet, young human in danger. These characters make cameos in the P/C series and this is their backstory. Sadly, that made it hard for me to enjoy the story. I didn't have anything to ground me to them and so this story felt kind of contrived. Maybe fans of the series will love it but I didn't feel it. 2/5 stars
The third tale in this tome is Virginia Kantra's Shifting Sea, a Children of the Sea series short. I have to say that the CotS series is one of the more original paranormal romance series I have had the pleasure of reading. Not one of the titles or shorts I have read from this series was a disappointment and this is no exception. When a lady of the finfolk falls for a wounded soldier on land she has to choose between her love and the sea. If you love historicals and paranormals this is a terrific sample of what the best in the genre can be. Fans of the series shouldn't miss this one! 5/5 stars
Probably one of the most anticipated books to be released this year is Meljean Brook's Iron Seas series opener, The Iron Duke. Brook is already well known as the author of paranormal romance The Guardians series and The Iron Duke is her steampunk romance debut. Letting readers have a nibble of the world of the Iron Seas series seems to have only served to whet appetites more. For such a short story where the steampunk element requires intense descriptive world building Here There Be Monsters delivers in spades. The romance between the blacksmith heroine and crazy pirate captain is palpable and downright yummy. Fans of steampunk looking for some romance or fans of Brook's other work should definitely read this tale. It was my favorite! 5/5 stars
Overall this anthology is exceptional. The entries are varied to include shapeshifters, mechanical-limbed pirates, vampires and more. From the big city and the high seas to the Scottish countryside and dangerous fantasy realms there's a little bit for every romance reader who likes a paranormal element. I highly recommend Burning Up and look forward to reading more from these authors in the future.
