Must Love Hellhounds

Must Love Hellhounds is an anthology with four new adventures by the four great authors. First, in The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris, Clovache and Batanya have to follow their charge they have just been hired to protect into Hell to steal one of Lucifer's toys. Following that is Angels' Judgment, written by Nalini Singh, where Sara Hasiz has to find a traitor who's killing vampires. With the help of a hunkie stranger named Deacon.
 
Then in Magic Mourns, thanks to Ilona Andrews, we meet a three-headed dog that guards the gates to Hades and why he's suddenly appearing, hunting for something - or someone. And last, there is Blind Spot, written by Meljean Brook, where a vampire's butler is in search of her employer's niece, with the help of a blind, sexy man, and of course, a hellhound!
 
These four amazing stories have one feature in common - hellhounds! And I enjoyed every single one. Admittedly, I'm not a big fan of anthologies, I always want more but these four stories left me nicely satisfied and I loved Must Love Hellhounds. While I really enjoyed reading all four, there were two that I just absolutely loved, Angels' Judgment and Magic Mourns. Angels' Judgment is a prequel to Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh and I loved reading about Sara and Deacon and how they met. These two characters rocked and I'm so looking forward to more of Ms. Singh's new Guild series. And I liked Lucy, too! In Magic Mourns, the plot focuses on Andrea and Raphael, but our beloved Kate Daniels makes an appearance, sort of.
 
It was nice to read an extension to Sookie's world in The Britlingens Go to Hell, those bodyguards are pretty cool. And Blind Spot was just really the perfect end to a wonderful book. Overall, I had a blast reading Must Love Hellhounds, an anthology about four devilish dogs, featuring awesome characters and great romance!
