I was lucky enough to recieve an A.R.C. of this before the reléase, but that will not color my review in any way.

THE HUNTED HEART.
By CARRIE ANN RYAN.
★★★★★
This story is part of the Redwood Pack series

Emeline is an Elder of the pack and is 500yrs old. Like all wolves she only appears to be in her 20s. She has lived in with the other elders until recently, and is just getting used to being on her own. At the moment she is working with the pack healers to cure someone from a magically caused blindness.
Noah is a doctor and a young wolf at only 28 years old. He has known since he first met Em that she is a potential Mate. Until she realizes it he will just have to court her, while they work together to find the right mix of magic and medicine to heal his friend. Em sees herself as an old woman and Noah as a very young man with all his life to find his Mate. Someone in the pack is horrified When they see the growing attraction between Noah and Em, and decides to put a stop to it.

This is a fun addition to a great series. With lots of action and sexy love scenes. It doesn’t matter If you read it out of sequence.  The story stands well on It’s own. But does contain a few spoilers If like me you’re not yet up to date.
I skipped the cast list at the beginning because I didn’t want to spoil the books I haven’t read yet.

JACKELS MEASURE..
BY MARIE HEART.
★★★★☆
This is obviously part of a series, but not one I have read YET.

All the ancient Gods are having a competition to see who’s followers are the strongest, It’s called The Games of the Gods. These games are carried out in the human world. Supposedly to keep them fair, and honest.
Tariq and his team of jackels represent Anubis the Egyptian  God.  Tariq has had part of his soul stolen by the God Set.  He is an evil cheat.
Eden is just a human,(she thinks) who stumbles into a fight between Tariq’s team and the Greek team. They try to erase her memory. Eden has always had dreams of other times. Now Set is after her for something she has made. Tariq must keep her out of Set’s reach as long as possible.
There seems to be a connection between them, as If they have met before.
I found this a little confusing  until I got into it. I think If I had read the earlier books it would be better. I definitely want to read all of them now. A very HOT read.

ALPHA’S SACRIFICE.
By REBECCA ROYCE.
★★★★★

This story stands alone well, but is probably from a very good series that  I’m going to find.

Hayden has been made alpha of the Napa pack. He is happily making wine and hoping he will be a good alpha. There have been several werewolves murdered recently by the group known as the True Believers. A crazy woman comes to winery saying she knows all about Hayden and his pack, and insists that they are in grave danger.
Chelsea has suffered with visions for years.  The True Believers took her off the streets, to experiment on her and use her visions. While she is having what she calls an episode she escapes ,and finds her way to Hayden to save him. The problem for both of them is, when she comes out of her episode she doesn’t remember any of it.
A very good emotional story, that has drawn me in. I’m now off to find the series it is part of.

TOUCH OF DESIRE
BY LIA DAVIS.
★★★★★
This story stands alone well but definitely tempts me to get the rest of the series.

Ashwood and Moonriver packs are pulling their lives back together after a destructive attack. The Jaguars and Wolves working  hard to put defenses in place and re-build.
Cora has lost her whole family and her wolf is terrified and hiding deep inside her. As a submissive Cora finds it hard to cope, or ask for help. She has known for ages that Torin is her Mate,but he is a strong dominant enforcer. He deserves better than a broken wolf.
Torin needs Cora as his Mate but knows how scared she is.  He has to make her strong enough to take her place by his side.
The pack still face danger from outside. A very emotional and beautiful love story.
I will be getting the series. 

SANGUE FEVER
BY ANN MAYBURN
★★★★☆

This story seems to be a stand alone.
Lisbetta  is a very lonely vampire. She has spent her six hundred years taking revenge on her first maker. Sargon is an extremely powerful master vampire,  who  rescued her from the evil one  who turned her, and has helped and loved her ever since. Lisbetta is finding it difficult to trust anyone. Because her turning was a nightmare that lasted years,she has always refused to make a progeny.  Tyler is a mature man who knows what he wants, and will do anything it takes to make the beautiful Lisbetta his. The sexy cowboy has to make a life changing  decision. With the help of Sargon who will do anything to make Lisbetta happy,  Tyler will convince her they should be together forever.

This story is about learning to give yourself totally to love in all It’s forms.  A very sexy short story.

FORBIDDEN RESCUE.
BY HEATHER LONG.
★★★★★

This story is from the Watchers series.  The Watchers are the ones who keep work to keep the balance between Heaven and Hell. A triumvirate made up of a Nephilim, a Demon and a Witch are in charge.
Jubilee Spector is running for her life from drug dealers out to kill her. She has ratted them out in an attempt to protect her brother. A door opens as she is running, so she bolts through it. One look of the nearly naked man in the room and Jubilee thinks it might be safer outside.
Fox Arada is a fox shifter for the Watchers. He is on leave for two days. When  the Jubilee’s fight comes to his room, he finishes it. The problem now is the girl has seen what he is,that is forbidden. Fox decides to protect Jubilee even from his bosses. The need he has to save her is so strong it allows him to defy the blood bond.   When his boss shows up they find out that Jubilee is a lot more than even she knew.
This is a very exciting story that has got my one click finger itching. I’m off now to find this series. 

This whole anthology has been brilliant.  There are new to me authors to read lots more from. They are all sexy stories of varying heat levels. Paranormal romance of all types. Vampire,Shifters, Demons and even Angels. Great fun.
