an anthology with bite!!

Hot Blood is an anthology by for of the hottest paranormal writers around today - Christine Feehan, Maggie Shayne, Emma Holly and Angela Knight. This book rocks, no two ways about it! If you love Vamps and Lycans, love cutting edge, shock-your-socks-off, sizzling writers with original tales, then this book is for you. Don't pass it off to Gran or Auntie Mae unless you know this is their cup of tea. It can, in places, make little old ladies swoon and reach for the smelling salts. However, if you are tired of tame anthologies and looking for a walk on the wild side, don't hesitate. It's rare to find so much talent under one anthology banner. The first tale is Christine Feehan's Dark Hunger, a continuation of her very successful "DARK" Carpathian series. I noted one mainstream critic said she struggled with the short story form. Baloney! Christine's style is sharp, fluid and beautifully written - and I might compliment her on her multiple-POV (Point of View) style I so enjoy. The lyrical writing was so refreshing compared to the single POV rabidness going around of late that is making books stale. It's quality writing at it's best. The tale is about a Carpathian who has been captured, and left to die, in a remote jungle lab. He cannot warn his kindred without being "bait" in the trap. However, he is saved by Juliette. Unable to control his need, he must take Juliette's blood to survive. All the DARK fans will not want to miss this one. And again, big round of applause for Feehan's multi POV style! Awaiting Moonlight is Maggie Shayne's tale. I have been a fan of her work since the old Silhouette Shadow's heyday, and her talent just grows. This is a wonderful tale about a science professor who enters the steamy bayou to find a new species of animal, convinced it is responsible for the wild tales of Lycanthropes running about the town. Only, she runs smack into the real thing, fangs and all, and find he is quite tempting. He is not her worst nightmare, but her darkest fantasy come to life. Shayne's writing is strong, the tale magic. The Night Owl is the entry from Emma Holly. It's a very charming tale of Marriann O'Faolian who lives in a small Vermont town, and just loves to bake her grandfather's recipes. The sexy Bastien, who is her landlord, has a lot of secrets to hide, but the townsfolk little care since he and his rich companion are tossing around a lot of money. Bastien has fallen in love with the homey Marriann, but is nearly tongue-tied when he tries to court her. When she is nearly killed in a deliberate hit and run accident, she is saved by Bastien, but at what cost? Angela Knight is the "new kid" on the block, and yet she comes in with the most original and engaging tale. She says to the other three pros, move over, and they had better listen! She takes vamps and mixes in Camelot lore, and conjures a, winning, imaginative tale "Seduction's Gift". John Lance aka Lancelot is one sexy modernize hero. He has c

Ooooh la la~

This is indeed a treat of a book. Stories from great authors that are muscles in the spreading wings of romantica. I especially enjoyed the stories from Emma Holly and Angela Knight. Highly reccommended read!

A great anthology

Hot Blooded is an absolutely wonderful book that perfectly blended four unique writing styles. Emma Holly's NIGHT OWL is the most clever idea-a Bed and Breakfast owner, who is a vampire with issues. SEDUCTION'S GIFT, by Angela Knight, is hands-down my favorite story in the book. Everything worked well in this very erotic vampire story. Just Perfect. Maggie Shayne's awating sunrise was a good story of werewovles in the bayou. Christine Feehan's DARK HUNGER is an excellent Carpathian and Jaguar short story. HUNGER combines some of the best of her genres.

A fresh look at vampires

Frankly, I bought this book for Angela Knight's "Seduction Gift" and I was totally blown away. From the moment Grace pulls Lancelot over for speeding, I knew this was a totally unique look at vampires. This story introduces an entire world of vampires and witches, in which Camelot was a spin doctor's cover story and yet so much more. If you like an erotic vampire romance, read this! I can hardly wait for the next novel in this world, MASTER OF THE NIGHT. I love Emma Holly's stories and I've always particularly enjoyed her shorter works. This one is a true jewel to add to my collection. Thanks, Emma!

All Stories Good

I can't believe the few bad reviews on this book. It was surprisingly good. Dark Hunger was my favorite story in the book, too. Dark Hunger was meant to be an introduction to Feehan's series set in South America. As such, it did not to try solve all problems. (The chapter from the upcoming Dark Secret was so good that I read it twice.) Feehan finally introduces the Jaguar people to the Carpathians. I think several other books will come out of this exciting turn. I enjoyed all of the other stories. This is one of the rare books that I am keeping around to read again.
