The first story in the book is titled Where Darkness Lives and is authored by Alexandra Ivy. It features Sophia, mother-in-law to both Styx and Salvatore, and her hot, yummy bodyguard. I was a little slow in this one – the aforementioned bodyguard, Luc, is one of Salvatore’s trusted men. My previous impression of Luc was rather low – more muscle than brain and not too high on the sexy-meter. This story, however, quickly corrected those misconceptions. Luc is a strong, snarky, and intelligent character – oh, and he does have a great body! I loved the play between him and Sophia. The chemistry and sexual tension were obvious from their first meeting. The two of them cracked me up! I can’t tell you how many passages I highlighted on my Kindle Fire. Alexandra did a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life – they leapt off the page at the reader! I highly recommend this read.
I’ve just stared the second story. It is titled Murder on Mysteria Lane and is written by Angie Fox. I don’t recall having read anything by Ms. Fox before, but this story is off to a good start. Heather, a werewolf, is told she will be working undercover with a sexy vampire, Lucien, who is to be her “husband” to solve a murder. Heather is talented but not in trophy wife sense (and much less in the fashion sense). So far she and Lucien have done a good job butting heads. Oh, and she did manage to catch the good detective off guard when she stripped out of her clothes, leaving herself in a red thong. Take that, Mr. Vamp Detective (her sarcastic comment was much better)! I can’t wait to continue reading to see what other laughs await!
