Composed by eight stories that will blow your mind in different ways, this is a set of unique stories. Each one has its element of paranormal, ghosts, death, angels or just spooky in it. The writings styles are really different one from another so it's hard to say something about it. However, I will say that the authors did a great job creating palpable worlds, likeable and real characters. They achieve the task of making the feelings and emotions real and what's more important the language and use of words is superb. The book has an excelent quality and there are no flaws to mention.
There are some stories I enjoyed more than other, I won't lie, but I found something good in all of them. In Bewitching Gypsy there is a fantastic witch and a good ending. In Garden of Souls the ghost was too gentle and human and it was impossible not to love him. If This Be Madness is really creepy and the perfect example of terror. Ghost of a Chance is sweet, addiction and it's full of action and the ending is breathtaking. Do You Believe in Ghosts is a really good story about forgiveness and moving on. Encantado was one of my favorites, the outcome is espectacular and the characters are great. Where Angels Tread is a story about endless love and angels. This one is really good because you can feel sadness and pure love through the words. Spooky Hollow Café is really entertaining, full of adrenaline and action and of course romance.
Overall, an excellent anthology. Very recommendable for lovers of paranormal and short stories.
***I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange of an honest review. ***
As a reader, I tend to prefer paranormal and contemporary romance and occasionally stray to the romantic suspense. It was fun getting out of my normal comfort zone into stories that stalk the lines of horror and urban fantasy more than romance.
Can love exist around the spooky, mystical and unknown? This series shows that love is worth the leap, despite the pain. I recommend this book for readers of romance, fantasy and urban fantasy. And I look forward to reading more from these authors!

Bewitching Gypsy, by Linda Carroll-Bradd. 3 stars. I really enjoyed the magic and description of this piece, but I had trouble with the woman’s dialect. It was a bit too thick and kept pulling me out of the piece. There seemed to be attraction between the hero and heroine but I would have liked more romance.
Garden of Souls, by Michelle Ziegler. 4 stars. This piece started off a little disjointed for me, there was a sudden leap to the nightclub from the house and I feel that moment would have been stronger if she remained in once place for the whole of it. At a later point, there was some dialogue between the heroine and her ghost that was hard to follow. Overall, this piece was fun and the ending was very satisfying.
If This Be Madness, by Echo Shea. 5 stars. I felt that this was a fabulous piece and I really enjoyed the glimpse into the mind of a hag, especially one who has managed to keep her impulses at bay for so long. The description is beautiful and the woman’s love for her husband was beautiful.
The Ghost of a Chance, by Lily Carlyle. 4 stars. The plot of this story was fun. I like the premise of it a lot. It did strike me as a little odd though that we didn’t get more of a response (emotional or her trying to reason through it) from Julie that it was strange that Sean was around because he was dead. It didn’t seem like something she would keep to herself.
Do You Believe in Ghosts?, by Anne Higa. 5 stars. This world was a lot of fun, where ghosts and mediums are commonplace. And I thought it sweet how we got a sort of double romance in this.
Encantado, by Havva Murat. 3 stars. This was a good spooky story and I enjoyed learning a little about this other mystical world. I had a bit of trouble keeping track of the different characters at the start and I could have used a bit more time on the romance at the beginning so the love at the end would have been more meaningful. The jump in time felt a little sharp to me too.
Where Angels Tread, by Christy Thomas. 5 stars. The world was so deeply developed and so easy to learn. This was a delectable little morsel of a story. I really enjoyed this eternal romance.
Spooky Hollow Cafe, by Lisa Adams. 4 stars. This piece was fun and I enjoyed seeing the hero’s point of view as he learned about the ghost world. The final scene came across more as an epilogue and seemed a bit out of place in this short a format.
