Red Alert! Sexy supernaturals ahead!! If you're a paranormal fan, don't miss the "Dead After Dark" anthology with stories by a three well-known names in the paranormal romance genre and one newcomer to watch. Sherrilyn Kenyon's story "Shadow of the Moon" is about the werewolf Fury and takes places in the Dark-Hunter world. Fury has never let himself get close to a woman because the only woman he ever loved turned on him when his heritage was revealed. Now that woman is back, but this time she's in Fury's power. ***My only beef? Not long enough! Well...and I really wanted Fury for my own :)"The Story of Son" by J.R. Ward is NOT a BDB story, but it IS a smoking hot contemporary story about a normal woman who gets caught up in an abnormal situation and ends up loving and saving a creature she should, by human standards, hate. ***I think this was my favorite story and I actually had tears in my eyes at one point. I'd like to see more stories from Ward about/in this world. Well...as long as it doesn't delay more BDB stories:PSusan Squires offers "Beyond the Night" set in her historical Companion series. A man searching for love and revenge instead encounters a vampire who is searching for her own choices after a life of service to the leader of the vampires. Together, they both find the good and bad of what they're looking for. ***A sure winner if you like Squires' series. If you haven't read her series, this will give you an idea of its flavor.New author Dianna Love rounds out the anthology with "Midnight Kiss Goodbye". A reunion romance of a modern-day warrior and the witch he left behind in an effort to keep her safe. Neither knows about the other's 'special' abilities. But know she's hunting and being hunted by a malevolent entity who's looking to use her as a gateway to unleash unspeakable violence on the world. ***Definitely an author to watch. I really enjoyed this glimpse into Love's intricate, mythical world. Very sexy and very urban fantasy. Hope to see more from her soon.All in all, well worth the price and the read!

This is still another anthology I bought just for Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter story. It's a story I have been eagerly anticipating - Fury's. Fury is the brother of Vane and Fang, and has always been my favorite of the three. Though none of them had it easy, Vane and Fang at least had each other and their sister. When Fury's Arcadian mother and brothers discovered he was actually Kattagaria, they tried to kill him. Among his attacker was the woman he loved, Angelia. In this story, he encounters her again. Can she let go of her prejudices, and he his pain, so that they can rediscover their love for one another? I did enjoy the story. My only regret is that I think Fury should have had his own novel. Still, well worth reading for fans of the series.
Review by Jenson_AKA_DL
Four decent stories of the paranormal. The first three were all set in universes I was familiar with, with Kenyon's story with Fury being the only character I knew. Kenyon's story was also my favorite of the four and I liked this short much better than her full on novel "Bad Moon Rising", which was a bit of a disappointment. Ward's story takes place in her BDB universe but with stand alone characters we are unlikely to see make an appearance in her regular series. Squires' Companion story is my second look into that universe but involving a character I don't remember. Love's "Midnight Kiss Goodbye" also seemed to come from a series romance and unfortunately suffered from a mad influx of characters which made a story that had started off very well feel rather overwhelming at its close.Overall I found all the stories enjoyable and would recommend to a fan of paranormal romances.
