WEREWOLVES IN LONDON/KARILYN BENTLEY Vonda has sworn off men until she meets Tom. Now all she has to do is rescue his daughter, fight a pack of werewolves and save her heart from being broken.
This anthology has five different stories from five different authors. The only common thread to the stories being werewolves. Whether they were Alpha males or strong females all the characters in these stories made you care. Each author brought you into their world and kept you entertained from start to finish. Short stories are always a nice way to get a feel of an authors work and if you like them. It seems I may have found five new authors to enjoy. Each story held its own and had me enthralled and glued to the pages to see what was going to happen next.
In the first story SHADOW STATE we read about a pack of werewolves fighting the Nazis in the 1900’s. As Christoph and Elsa finally meet and deal with their mating they must also deal with the Nazis. They must keep themselves and the pack hidden from the Nazi scientists who wish to experiment on them and build their own army of super werewolves to win the war. Can they save the pack as well as dealing with their own mating?
The next story BLOOD MOON would have to be my favorite of the five stories. In this story we learn of evil scientists trying to experiment on werewolves. One night alpha male Logan escapes one of their facilities and ends up at Kate’s veterinary clinic. Once she finds out just what Logan is and what has happened to him at the scientist’s hands it is a race against time to help Logan and his brother.
RAVEN’S SHELTER was another great story. Veterinarian Karen is a strong woman with a soft heart for animals. She finds Raven in his wolf form hurt and barely conscious. Not knowing that he is a werewolf Karen takes him in and thinks that she is operating on a large dog that maybe part wolf. Once Raven recovers he leaves Karen and returns to his human form.
Raven than comes to Karen’s clinic to offer his help and as the two come to know each other Raven is attacked and kidnapped. As Karen tries to figure things out Cord who is Ravens sisters husband comes along to help. The two must find a way to rescue both their loves. The only question is will Karen accept Raven once she finds out just what he really is?
In MAREKS WORLD we learn about ancient ways and the evils that dwelled on earth from the times of the pyramids and before. Marek awakes many years in the future only to find that the evil he was to guard has been freed and is roaming the world. He must find and conquer it before all is lost. Along the way he comes upon Cheyenne and her werewolf pack. He must trust them and try to enlist their help. Can they work together to destroy the evil before it is to late?
In the last story WEREWOLVES IN LONDON Vonda a lone werewolf comes across a kidnapping of a small child. The small child of a man she has recently found feelings for. As Vonda and Tom band together to find and save his daughter the two must deal with their own feelings. Many a twist and turn in this story has you glued to the pages wanting to see what was going on. Both Vonda and Tom are in for many a surprise and the reader is along for the ride.
All these stories were full of depth and action. If you enjoy stories full of love and action you will definitely enjoy these stories. With lots of Alpha males and strong women these stories take the reader on a nice ride. I thoroughly enjoyed this anthology and cannot wait to find some more stories from these authors.
