Shifter (anthology) by Angela Knight, Lora Leigh, Alyssa Day and Virginia Kantra
I borrowed this anthology of paranormal romance from the public library the other day. It’s an interesting collection of stories.
First up: Angela Knight‘s Mad Dog Love. This story is about enslaved werewolves in space. No joke. Werewolves, space empire intrigue and sex. I don’t really know what else to say about it. I’ve never read anything else by her and I’m not inclined to pick something up based on this short story but it was definitely different…
Second story: A Jaguar’s Kiss by Lora Leigh, set in the world of the Breed series. She’s the only author I’m familiar with, having read and written about Megan’s Mark last year. A Jaguar’s Kiss is just like all the other stories in the series: Breed meets human, Breed puts mating mojo on human, tension ensues then they fall in love.
Third: Shifter’s Lady by Alyssa Day. This must fit into a series somehow but I’ve never read anything by Alyssa Day so I’m not really sure. The story’s all about a lady from Atlantis who comes to visit her brother (who’s married to a shapeshifter) and then falls in love with the alpha on her sister-in-law’s pride. This story was actually really good since there was romance and there was a bit of danger (because there was a nice plot).
Last: Virginia Kantra‘s Sea Crossing, which is a historical piece about a selkie and a human falling in love. He destroys the steamer she’s aboard to get her to come to selkie Sanctuary to be a teacher and then it’s all about their interaction. First time I’ve read Virginia Kantra. I may or may not pick up something else by her. It all depends on what the public library has to offer.
