Any Lora Leigh story I am going to read, even if it is a short. I found Enthralled a great read because it allowed me to get glimpses of the other authors and their writing styles so I can determine if I would like to go and get any of their books. After reading these shorts I know that the answer to that is YES! Anthologies are always a good way to get to know the author and their style to see if you like their writing.

DEVIL'S DUE by Lora Leigh - Breeds series

Devils Due introduces “Devil”, the Grim Reaper of the Breeds, and Katie O'Sullivan who is Irish. The story really begins when she asks to leave Ireland to be protected from being forced into the labs and meets Devil who comes to rescue her. She's taken to a ranch in New Mexico and the story unfolds. As always Ms. Leigh brings the world of the breeds into play with glimpses of the previous characters. I really enjoyed the short with Devil and the introduction of the European Breeds and what kind of potential story line that could maybe in the future.

ECSTASY UNDER THE MOON by Lucy Monroe - Children of the Moon Series

Set before Dragon Moon, Ecstasy under the Moon is a quickie little romance that gives a glimpse of the Elan and the Faol. The story is about Una and Bryant, past hurts and healing. I really enjoyed the way Bryant handled Una, which I found very romantic and a good little story.

Wolf shifter Byrant is working to bring peace between the wolf shifting Faol and the bird shifting Elan clans. But trying to overcome the distrust caused by a few of his brethren hunting the bird shifters to the brink of existence is proving to be a little harder than expected. Eagle shifter Una was once abused by Foal and is very afraid of any Foal. She has been damaged emotionally as a result. Can Bryant overcome past hurts to heal this wounded bird?

The Curse of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day - Order of the Black Swan series

This is a sweet romance between a "cursed" human female and the half Fire Demon? Readers get a sweet story between two lonely people that find a connection.

Brynn is the last in the line of daughters cursed to turn into a swan. She soon finds herself breaking her own rules by agreeing to a date with firefighter, Sean. Sean has his own secrets that make this couple a great match of two lonely souls looking for love.

SALVAGE by Meljean Brook - Iron Seas series

Wow Salvage started off pretty quick. That’s how a short should start. Jump in with a bullet, a kidnapping, and a choice that could throw away this couples chance at a happily ever after.

Salvage centers on Georgie and Tom as they fight to salvage their marriage even as they fight for their lives. They complement each other with brains and brawn. You will be the judge on who has what!
