This anthology had a little bit for everyone ~ Under the Covers

I rarely like all the books in an anthology but with Fire & Frost I really enjoyed each one and am hard pressed to say which one would be my favourite. It introduced me to two authors I haven’t read before, Jessica Sims and Meljean Brook and one author that I already love, Carolyn Crane, which means that my unfortunate TBR mountain is going to have a few more titles perched on it!

This anthology had a little bit for everyone, if you like a sexy and lighthearted paranormal romance, than Jessica Sims story Speed Mating is great, it was funny and sexy and although you know what is going to happen from the start I still had a lot of fun reading it. If you fancy some magic and a little mayhem Conjuring Max by Carolyn Crane will be the story for you, as well as having some magical skirmishes, it has a really touching romance between the main two characters and this really managed to cram in a lot of emotion in such a small amount of pages. Also if you have read Mr. Real (which, I highly recommend you do!) then you will recognise the characters of Max and Veronica.

The last novella and the longest in this anthology was Wrecked by Meljean Brook and is part of her Iron Sea series, which I am now desperate to read. If I had to pick, I would say this was probably my favourite in this anthology; I found the world created by Meljean Brook was really interesting and something I can’t wait to read more about and I also really loved the romance. It was sweet yet full of sexual tension and I was desperate for these two unhappy characters to finally find their HEAs with one another.

I really enjoyed Fire & Frost it is definitely one of the best anthologies I have read and I recommend any fan of romance to give it a go.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?

Suz – I can’t recommend Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas Series to you highly enough. It is hands down one of the best series I have ever read and I love it. Collect the previous books and get reading! You won’t be disappointed!!!


Will be adding to my wishlist-thanks Suz!
