Yes, the Mammoth Book of Vampire Romances is truly MAMMOTH containing 25 short stories. You'll recognize the names of the most of the 23 well known authors as the writers of your favorite paranormal romance and popular urban fantasy series. Despite the title, only about half of the stories in the book are `romances' though most have some sex, but they do all have vampires and most all have a key element of the story associated with the vampire's bite: bringing a transformation, granting immortality, unlocking or stealing memories, sealing a bond or, with the refusal of the acceptance of its offer, breaking a heart. Together the stories pretty much cover most of the niches of the PNR and UF genres, one little tidbit at a time.

Since these are truly short stories some of the endings are a bit abrupt. A few of the entries tied into the authors' existing series, Gleason's and Arthur's read like deleted scenes from early books, and Devlin's, Holder's, Raye's, Chance's and Saintcrow's (the first of her two) explore other characters/pieces of their worlds. It's my first time with authors Kiernan, Devlin, Hart and Walker, but I suspect Walker's was a connected story too. My favorites were the ones from Chance, Black, Devlin, Emrys, and Morgan, they did the best with their characters and stories in the very short space. My least favorite were both of Kiernan's entries and Pettersson's - the vague poetic style of these stories left me unconnected to their characters.

*** "Fade to Black" - Sherri Erwin - A professor's tryst with a gorgeous student brings a whole new meaning to `unsafe sex' when he infects her with the `vampire' virus. (3 stars - This one was pointless and not a romance, it was all set up and then a too abrupt ending.

A savory collection of vampire tales of love and lust, THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF VAMPIRE ROMANCE, is a terrific sampler for fans of both the paranormal romance and urban fantasy genres. With offerings from some of the new big names in the vampire sub I highly recommend this for other readers who are seeking a taste of new authors. Others, not looking for new authors, might enjoy the few that tie into current series. To keep things brief let me offer information on each short story...

[FADE TO BLACK] by Sherri Erwin, When a vampire obsessed professor finds out one of her students is one of the undead their tryst forces choices on her she never saw coming. --While I liked the whole professor-has-vampire-as-student concept the story felt like it came out of another book and just didn't do it for me. 2/5 stars

[ODE TO EDVARD MUNCH] by Caitlin R. Kiernan, Our narrorator is a musician passing through Central Park each night where he befriends a mysterious young female vampire, one whom he dreams of in so many ways. --I loved the narration but this story was very short and poetic, not really romantic. 3/5 stars

[FANGS FOR HIRE] by Jenna Black, Gemma is a vampire hitwoman who is good at her job and when a client hires her to kill his step-father over an inheritance she gets a lot more than she bargained for. --I didn't think I'd like this one but the step-father character pulled the story together and would have made an excellent hero for a longer book. 4/5 stars

[THE RIGHTEOUS] by Jenna Mclaine, In this historical, when a vampire who is charged with weeding out the bad seeds of his race meets a human slayer who stirs his blood will they remain foes, or could he prove to her not all his kind are evil?

I enjoy vampire stories and bought this book for some of my favorite authors. Karen Chance and Susan Sizemore did not disappoint. I did not enjoy about half of the stories as they just didn't appeal to me. I would buy this book again for those I did like however

It is a collection of many different stories from different authors. It is a good book if your looking to expand your interests. As with most of these books there are some that are really worth your time and you find another jewel to add to your treasure of books.
It isn't something I would want for anything other than to find a new author.
I don't like these type of books.

If like romance/suspense and vampires, this books is a must-read. The stories touch on vampires paired with romance, suspense, with thrilling conclusions. I did want some of these stories to be a bit longer, but was still satisfied with these tales. Some of my favorites are:

The Sacrifice (Rebecca York)
A princess named Morgan, that travels to a forbidden cave in search of a great legendary monster from centuries gone by. She decides to sacrifice herself in order for him to help save her father's kingdom from attacking hoards. Through her interact and talking with the creature, she comes to realize he's not the monster of nightmares.

The Music of the Night (Amanda Ashley)
A vampiric telling of Phantom of the Opera. A teacher, Christie goes to Paris to see the original theater from Phantom of the Opera. She sits through many shows and waits long after everyone has departed in an effort to see the 'real' Phantom. Erik, the phantom takes Christie to his lair underneath the theater. Here, they develope a passionate friendship as he shares his story with her.

The Righteous (Jenna Maclaine)
Justine is an opera singer in Paris, and former courtesan to both King Louis XIV 's and King Charles. A beautiful, talented woman, who was very dangerous. Devlin watches Justine take out 3 vampires who are killing a human as they feed from her, and he is more than intrigued, he feels alive for the first time.

The above is just to name a few. There were lots of great stories that were different and hard to put down. This book overall was a good read
