With Gena’s usual fun and sexy style it was full of energy and I read it with a smile on my face. ~ Under the Covers
This is an anthology set in the small town of Mysteria, a haven for any kind of magical creature, witches, vampires, shifters, fae you name it and it lives in Mysteria. The Tawdry sisters are witches and Mysteria has always been their home, and now they plan on seducing their man using any magical means possible…
The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them
Genevieve has loved Hunter since she was 17 years old, but although she could swear he feels the same for her he keeps pushing her away. She may now be bordering on some…stalkerish extremes to get his attention, but Evie knows he feels something. So what harm could a short dress, a love potion and a wish possible do?
This was a great short story! With Gena’s usual fun and sexy style it was full of energy and I read it with a smile on my face. With very few pages some interesting and intriguing characters were established and a steamy romance heated up my kindle screen.
A Tawdry Affair
Glory wants revenge on the man who cruelly rejected her. Luckily her sister is a witch of vengeance and gives her a magic pen, everything she writes will come true for a short period of time. Unluckily she still desires him, so what would be better vengeance then seducing and rejecting him?
This was my favourite story in the anthology, Glory was funny and sarcastic, just my kind of gal. Plus I love a heroine with a few body issues, especially when she gets the tall and sexy guy. The sexual tension really heated up in this one, and once again I hate a great sexy and sweet short story that couldn’t get enough of.
This was a good anthology, it was fairly short as it only contained two novellas but I liked both stories, when normally anthologies can be a little hit and miss. I would recommend this if you are a Gena fan and if you are looking for something light and fun to read.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
