"Great paranormal anthology"

"Winter Born" by Sherrilyn Kenyon. At the Atlanta based Dragon.com gala, were-panther Pandora seeks the help of Acheron as she is a bit frightened having left her pack for the first time. Pandora is a virgin in heat. Enemy pack were-panther Dante is drawn to Pandora, but he believes it is more than just her heat though she assumes it is a basic law of nature. How to prove otherwise is his problem until he realizes he must keep his soulmate safe from others of their kind.

"Born of Night" by Amanda Ashley. Lord Reyes captures Lady Shanara. However, to both their respective chagrins they are attracted to one another, a taboo since her father wears the pelt of his father after killing him. Still could love be the impetus to end his family's werewolf curse?

"Make It Last Forever" by L.A. Banks. In 1979 a cursed Tara must leave Vegas to get help from her beloved Indian Nana in Arizona. On the bus she meets nomadic Jack. As they fall in love, weird happenings follow Tara due to the curse, but Jack led by his heart also follows Tara.

"Red Moon Rising" by Lori Handeland. Just relocated from Chicago to Arizona, author Maya finds a Navaho skinwalker stalking her. Her only hope to survive her assailant is Clay, but she questions whose side he is on even as she falls in love with her only possible champion.

These four paranormal novellas are all terrific tales starring fully developed lead couples and delightful villains. At any time of day this is a winning anthology.
