This was so different and interesting. I liked the characters right away, and couldn't wait for them to get together. Hot scenes, romantic, angst to get around, thoroughly entertaining. I almost wanted to get a tattoo! Almost ! HaHa. They are made for each other, but of course life and pasts get entangled.
They are smart enough to get through it. Nice short story, well written, another great one from Eden Bradley. Enjoy! I did.
*Shadow Play by Sydney Croft
A top model has a haunting experience in her old family home. Along comes Hex to help her with his abilities. They help the ill fated ghosts spirits, and find love with each other. Hot steamy and full of bayou sensations and scenes. Very hot.
*Night Vision by Stephanie Tyler
Bat and Catie are very steamy and romantic. They find their love and friendship in a tough bar. They search their hang-ups and sort out life and love. Erotic and sexy. Great read, enjoy !!
~THE ART OF DESIRE by Eden Bradley~
Sophie has always been fascinated by tattoos, to the point of obsession. That's why she never allowed herself one before - she's afraid she wouldn't be able to stop, and her strict religious upbringing frowns on such marking of the body. When her friend drags her along to a tattoo salon, Sophie can't deny her reaction as she watches the artist decorate her friend's skin, nor can she deny her reaction to the artist himself.
Tristan is the embodiment of everything Sophie has ever fantasized about in a man. She finds herself compelled to have him do her very first tattoo. The experience is life changing - for both of them.
Eden Bradley is known for her unconventional romances, and THE ART OF DESIRE ranks right up there with the best of them. Using the art and beauty of tattoos to bring Tristan and Sophie together, Bradley then builds on their connection, layering their compatibilities until there is no doubt in anyone's mind that this couple is right for each other.
If only Tristan's self-image allowed him to believe he deserved the luxury of loving someone. Tristan's past is rife with pain, and before this pair can enjoy their happy ending together, he must first work through his self-recrimination. When he finally does and sees that Sophie is his chance for redemption and happiness, we have a happily ever after to rival any other.
Through it all, we experience the sensual art of the tattoo, and I must say that the way Eden Bradley presents it had this reviewer, who could barely stand the pain of having her ears pierced, actually considering getting a tattoo! Perhaps one day, when I find one as meaningful to me as Sophie's are to her. Or when I meet a man like the sexy Tristan... *grin*
~SHADOW PLAY by Sydney Croft~
Brenna St. James makes her living as a well-known, high-paid supermodel. Well, she used to. That was before a ghost decided to attach himself to her and blur her image in any photo taken of her. Desperate to rid herself of the jealous phantasm, she calls the renowned ghost photographer, Hex, for assistance.
Hex knows it is a bad idea to get involved with Brenna; her celebrity lifestyle wouldn't mix with his job working in the covert ACRO organization. But he just can't seem to stop himself.
Love and Fate definitely work in mysterious ways, and Sydney Croft's story in this anthology is a perfect example. In SHADOW PLAY, we have two people set upon completely different paths who come together for what should be a brief interlude in each other's lives. Their time together, however, changes the course of their lives forever.
Brenna goes through quite the transformation in this story, and her paranormal trial forces her to look inside and find who she really is. Once Hex succeeds in ridding her of the haint ruining her life, she finds her goals are no longer as clear-cut as they were before she met Hex. While she may begin the tale as the stereotypical self-involved model, the woman she is by the end of the story is one to be admired.
SHADOW PLAY is a fascinating paranormal romance that is as inspiring as it is sexy. While it is connected to the ACRO series, it can be read easily as a standalone story - something I can easily testify to since this is the first I've read yet. I guarantee you that it will not be the last I read, however!
~NIGHT VISION by Stephanie Tyler~
Inheriting a bar in Louisiana from an uncle she never knew, Catie is determined to investigate her roots, moving to Bayou Rouge to run the bar herself. She never counted on the saloon being full of roughnecks sapping the profits from her new business. Disheartened, she resolves to sell the bar, but must clean house before she can put it on the market.
To that end, she hires the infamous cooler, Bat Kelly, to rid her bar of the undesirable element. One look at Bat, though, and the normally controlled Catie finds her knees going weak and her heart beating a little faster.
As for Bat, he finds the sexy little barkeep is enough to make him think of planting his own roots right here in his hometown of Bayou Rouge. Catie makes him long for things he never thought he could have, and even though he knows their time together is temporary, he can't resist indulging in a very sultry fling with her.
I have to say, NIGHT VISION makes me kick myself when I think of the other Stephanie Tyler books already sitting on my bookshelf, still unread. I bought them because they looked intriguing and I heard good things about her work, but had I known just how good Tyler's stories really were, they would have already been at the top of my to-be-read pile.
Bat Kelly is the stuff of every rough and tumble fantasy I've ever had. The man is beyond hot, with his bad boy attitude covering up a heart that is unselfish and kind. Of course, it doesn't take Catie long to see the real man underneath that bouncer bluster.
Catie is a wonderful heroine. A bit repressed at first, when she decides to let herself go with Bat, her personality and sexuality blossoms.
There are some rather delicious moments in this story, and I have to admit when we discover just how Bat earned his unusual name, I do believe I blushed... Nope, I'm not telling why his name is Bat - you'll just have to read NIGHT VISION!

Tattoos were always something that fascinated Sophie, but she was worried to give in to her obsession till she meets Tristan. He is everything that she dreamt of and than some more.
Ms. Bradley is well know for her sometimes very unusual romances and THE ART OF DESIRE is no exception. Tristan is a mixture of bad boy and tortured hero who has to deal with his past before he can find a happy end with Sophie.
Shadow Play by Sydney Croft
Brenna St. James was a supermodel till a ghost attached himself to her. Desperate to free herself from him, she contacts Hex, a well-known ghost photographer to help her. Will he be able to help her?
SHADOW PLAY is a fascinating paranormal romance. Brenna and Hex couldn't be more different not only from their characters but also from their lifestyles, which makes the story so interesting.
This story is connected to Ms. Croft's great ACRO series, but it can be absolutely read as a stand-alone. Although I have to warn you that her stories are addictive and you will definitely want to check out her other books.
Night Vision by Stephanie Tyler
Suddenly Catie is the owner of her late uncle's ramshackle bar and she wants nothing to do with it. So she hires someone to make the bar profitable again and Bat Kelly is just the right person for the job. What she doesn't count on was the feelings that he stirs in her.
Ms. Tyler delivers a hot and very sensual, as well as steamy story with NIGHT VISION. Her hero is hotter than hell and Catie is just the perfect heroine for him, it's like two halves become one.
Three terrific authors in a fantastic anthology, that is every penny worth that it costs. Each of the three stories areabsolutely outstanding and a real pleasure to read. This book is a keeper for sure.
