Reading Challenges: Summer Romance - Paranormal
If love transcends all boundaries, then paranormal romance is its logical conclusion. From the biggest names around, here are 24 tales to take you to another time and place.
Let Alyssa Day, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Cheyenne McCray, Jeaniene Frost, Ilona Andrews, Kelley Armstrong, Maria V. Snyder, Carrie Vaughn, Allyson James Marland, and others show you powers beyong your wildest imaginings.
Within these pages mythical beasts, magical creatures of all shapes and sizes, heart-stoppingly handsome ghosts, angels, and mortals with extra-sensitive sensory perception play out the themes of extraordinary desires.
Overall, I really enjoyed this anthology. There were a few stories that I didn't really love, but I think that has more to do with the style of writing. I did absolutely adore a few. My favorites:
- "John Doe" by Anna Windsor -- Really loving the angel theme stories lately. This one intrigues me. Definitely want to read more from the author.
- "The Tuesday Enchantress" by MJ Putney -- Two Guardians meet in a surprising circumstance. Neither can deny the attraction. Whole story takes place in the span of a few hours. Great meet and instant attraction story.
- "Pack" by Jeaniene Frost -- A great werewolf story. Love Frost's writing and characters. When I get the rest of the series, I am blasting my way through the Night Huntress books.
