Not your average dating service. This one caters to creatures of the ether... Weres, Vampires, Elves, Faeries, Satyrs, Incubi... and much more.
It's a world of fantasy, of lust and love, but most of all, it's a world of dreams-come-true for the lucky few who arrive on the pristine shores of Chimera Island...
Twin chefs, a Vampire and a Werewolf, tempt Michelle Rios with delights both culinary and sensual in Camille Anthony's Dinner for Three.
Marissa's never failed in her matchmaking until she meets Sam/Thane -- the Dichotomy who sets her heart ablaze in Aubrey Ross's Matchmaker.
The three men who captured Trina's heart now expect her to help rule their tribe. Eve Vaughn weaves another tale of temptation in 4's Company.
The island of Chimera is an exotic getaway and the home of the Agency of Extraordinary Mates, a matchmaking service that caters to supernatural clients. They strive to meet their clients every desire no matter how off the beaten path it may be.
Dinner for Three by Camille Anthony, is a saucy tale of celebrity chefs, and identical twins Jon and Jason Corelli. Jon is a daywalking vampire and Jason is a werewolf, and they share EVERYTHING, including the desire for a wife who will accept them both. Michelle Rios is forced into a trip to Chimera by her business partners, who are concerned with her failing health.
Chelle has had fantasies about the Corelli's, forever She is a killer in the office, but with her serious body image issues that leave her shy and reserved. This is a HOT, uplifting story. These two guys break through Chelle's walls and turn her into an adventurous, voracious lover. A very good ménage tale with a sweet spin.
Matchmaker by Aubrey Ross deals with Nocturnal Dichotomies Sam/Thane, two halves of the same coin. Sam, unbeknownst to Thane hires Marissa, a fairy/elf Halfling, to find their true bond mate. Marissa strongly suspects she might fit the bill, but that would be so unprofessional. This is another hot ménage story, but with a little element of suspense thrown into the mix. This story involves elves, fairies, and the sidhe fighting a centuries old war. Matchmaker had a nice complex feel to it and was a very nice compliment to the anthology.
4's Company by Eve Vaughn is about three alpha males of the Manani tribe, a tribe of feline shifters from the mythical island of Laiocean. Bayoh, Roar, and Talh have found Trina Davis while visiting Chimera. All three agree that Trina would make the perfect queen. The rest of the tribe wasn't so thrilled. They had been burned by humans before. This story is just a smidgeon more adventurous than the two previous tales. The males must be in their natural leonine forms in order to impregnate their mate. That was a little much for me. There were also major trust issues which detracted a lot from the tale. This story was just not my cup of tea.
