Beggerman, Thief - OK, Mary Janice Davidson is definitely a worth reading author. She blends humor and self-depricating yet take charge heroines with storylines that you usually won't want to put down. But I stand by an earlier critisism that her stories keep getting shorter & shorter. Our leading lady is a feisty blue haired mutant that can go invisable and phaze through solid objects. She uses these talents to supplement her income. But she steals from the wrong guy (although Mr. Right). He's a human, but largely machine for reasons frustratingly unexplained. Ofcourse in 53 pages they hit it off and he saves her from the bad guy in the big fanale. But why exactly is she working for a bad guy? At 53 pages it reeled you in then spit you back out entertained but slightly bereft.
Stranded - Angela Knight is becoming one of The big names if you want a take charge, pull you in fantasy with a side of kinky. In her extreme take on a reality show she gives plenty of Way Out There alpha male. I love her books but I definitely blushed when reading this one.
Light on her Toes - I'd never read Camille Anthony, whose story takes up most of this anthologies space. MY HELPFUL HINT: Flip to the alien vocab terms that follow after the story! (before you read the tale duh!)Without that the terminology is very distracting and hard to figure out what the heck the characters are talking about. It's an alien rendition of the somewhat typical warrior girl battles warrior boy for equal footing in a relationship. It notes a previous story of this author which may be handy to read first.
So, have fun reading - all together it's an entertaining book to pick up!
I enjoyed Anglea Knights "Stranded" best. Of course, i'm a big AK fan and enjoy almost all her work.
MaryJanice Davidson's "Beggarman, Thief" was lighthearted fun.
Camille Anthony's "Light on Her Feet" is actually a sequel to "Swept off Her Feet" published by Elloras Cave. I think the story makes a lot more sense if you have read the first book.
While I enjoyed all these stories, I, in fact, own all of them as e-books. I was very disappointed that nowhere was there any warning that these stories have been previously published.
So...if you haven't already read them, and you like your alpha males, you will probably enjoy these stories.
are just REALLY bad.I found "Stranded" offensive,not erotic.
"Light on Her Toes" is just plain silly. Who wants to read a romance where you have to keep flipping to the glossary every other sentence just to understand it?
The worlds these writes create, especially MaryJanice Davidson, feel real. When one is a (secret) cyborg and feelilng more than a little jaded with the fact that you can buy anything in the world (except for happiness), the best cure for bordem has to be a sneaky mutant thief.
I enjoyed Angela Kight's alien abduction story. D/s with a Marine and a lawyer trapped in a fish bowl world? Need one say more? Angela Knight always delivers Alpha males with loads of...character.
Camille Anthony's world of Fems and Qarms is interesting. I highly recommend you read the glossary first and get familiar with the vocab of the world before forging ahead. The world is quite interesting. Of course, alpha males abound.
I understand that these were availible as eBooks, so check your list before you buy this.
