USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost seduces readers into a forbidden new world as she teams up with romance stars Shayla Black and Sharie Kohler for a sizzling collection of original novellas featuring fallen angels, anarchistic demons, warrior wizards, and irresistibly dangerous creatures of the night.
Enter the dark realm of Nocturna in Jeaniene Frost’s redhot tale, where blisteringly sexy Raphael dominates the demons of a lawless dimension and tries to help a beautiful young woman avenge her cousin’s disappearance. In the shadowy world of Shayla Black’s Doomsday Brethren, magical warrior Raiden vows to protect his woman and their unborn youngling from evil—and deliver her safely to another man. But once he’s saved her, can he let her go? Lycans rule the night in Sharie Kohler’s suspenseful story, as a fiery woman stalks mysterious Luc, the undeniably hypnotic being she believes can save her from turning . . . if she kills him. Danger beckons in these captivating paranormal tales that will tempt readers to the edge and leave them begging for more.
There's a lot to digest in this dark fantasy romance anthology. Black's "Mated," linked to her Doomsday Brethren series (Possess Me at Midnight, etc.), is sexy and exciting, featuring a well-matched couple in a world of warrior magicians trying to protect themselves and mankind. Even newcomers to Kohler's Moon Chasers series (No Soul to Keep, etc.) should be able to dive into "Darkest Temptation," but despite the intense connection between the leads, there's not enough atmosphere to keep things interesting. Frost's lengthy and complex contribution, "Night's Darkest Embrace," has the opposite problem. As it stands alone and takes part primarily in dimensions other than our own, extensive world-building involving demons, partial demons, and the Fallen may leave readers feeling overwhelmed. This is definitely one for knowledgeable fans of paranormal romance.
