a wrongful conviction and she is a foreign aristocrat so
nothing can come of this desire.
The Breed Next Door by Lora Leigh. In Fayetteville,
Arkansas, Tarek is a Breed created to kill; he understands
his inferiority to the natural born, but wants his
Lyra anyway. He stops a professional from killing her and
declares he will keep this woman safe though it means
forfeiting his life for neglecting the undercover
assignment he is performing.
Falling for Anthony by Meljean Brook. In 1811 Anthony goes
to the Peninsular as a surgeon because his medical school
sponsor demands this of him. Before he leaves his best
friend's sister Emily seduces him. In Spain, a vampire
assaults him but tastes the Sword of Norbridge "etched" on
Anthony's soul. Anthony must return to England to keep his
friend and his beloved safe, but he died in Spain.
The Blood Kiss by Shiloh Walker. Wolf King Roman wants his
nineteen years old younger brother freed from the vampires
who hold him or else. The werewolf sneaks into his
adversary's estate planning to rescue his sibling only to
be thrown for a loss when he meets the natural born
daughter of vampire Lord Eduard, Julianna as he knows she
is his pack mate.
These four graphic erotic romantic fantasies are terrific
novellas that sub-genre fans will appreciate yet wonder
heated each tale could have been as full length novels.
