On The Hunt by Alexandra Ivy
We are taken into the Sentinels world where Mika Tanner, a hunter is tasked with solving a sudden disappearance of an apprentice. Fortunately for him, Bailey Morrell, his childhood friend and ex lover, may know more than she thinks. As a healer, Bailey sees more than she should and unfortunately for them, if they want to answers, they will have to work together to get them.

Although it was a short-ish story, On the Hunt didn’t disappoint. It was action packed, suspenseful, romantic, with an off the charts chemistry and many twists.

Mika and Bailey were incredible characters. They were total opposites with different beliefs about their kind which is what tore them apart in the first place. Mika wants to do his duty while Bailey is a free spirit. What a pair!

Scorpius Rising by Rebecca Zanetti
I was so very excited to read this particular story. Scorpius Rising is the prequel to Zanetti’s brand new series, Scorpius Syndrome and I really can’t wait for Mercury Striking, the first book (Jan 2016)

In case you don’t know, the Scorpius Syndrome series is a dystopian one so in this book we get to see how the world ends.

Nora Mendina is the best scientist in her field. When she’s called in a case she knows that she will need help to find a cure for this foreign virus. A virus that could very well be our end.

What is more chocking is the fact that it’s her ex-husband, Deke who brought her in to help. Nora will do anything to find a cure for the virus while Deke will fight for what they used to have. Nora and Deke were such a dynamic couple. I loved the way they worked together and how easily but steadily they came together once again.

The nightmare isn’t over yet. This is just the beginning and I loved it. I can’t wait for more.

Phantom embrace by Dianne Duvall
This is part of the Immortal Guardians series and tells the story of Yuri, an Immortal with the ability to see spirits and Cat Seddon, an unusual spirit.

Yuri knows to ignore the spirits he sees or else they find an opportunity to torment him. So when he sees the amiable spirit in David’s house, he can’t understand why Seth doesn’t banish it from the house until he finds out the truth.

Cat is Bastien’s dead sister. She was brutally murdered by her husband who tricked Bastien into believing that Roland killed her. Cat has nowhere to go but stay besides her brother. So when Yuri notices her, Cat is relieved that she has finally found someone to talk to but at the same time she’s anxious. She hasn’t talked with anyone for a very long time but with Yuri everything is different.

I think this was the most special story in the book. Don’t get me wrong, I loved all four stories but Phantom Embrace had a bittersweet HEA!

Stake out by Hannah Jayne

Hannah Jayne is the only new author for me in the anthology. I was a bit skeptic before reading her story but as soon as I read it I understood why she was part of this anthology: she ROCKS!

Nina LaShay is the best vampire fashion designer in New York. She is preparing for the fashion show when her model is attacked and turned into a vampire. With the help of her boyfriends and her nephews, Nina will have to find out who is attacking models and turns them before it’s too late.

Stake out was so much fun. I loved the suspense and all the action. I didn’t really connect with Nina but I loved her boyfriend and her nephews!

On the hunt was so much fun to read. It was an incredible, breathtaking and simply beautiful compilation of four mind-blowing stories.
