Blue Murder by Emily Veinglory

Bern is starting to get desperate.  His blood dole hasnít been coming lately and he is close to starving.  He needs a distraction and he has found it in Kerry Carter; the one man at the police station that is just as much a monster as he is. Can a vampire and a werewolf survive together in a world that wants them gone?

Blue Murder introduces a world where monsters have to struggle to survive and two men have to struggle to sort out their feelings for each other.  I loved Bern, and while I didnít initially trust Kerry, he was a perfect complement to the vampire.

 

Things That Go Bump in the Night by Lucynda Storey

Tyler Crocket is starting to get desperate.  Heís wanted Summer Donaldson from the moment he met her, but he didnít think she would be interested in an old man like him.  Now that her relationship with Scot is over and Summer announces she is leaving, Tyler is willing to do anything to get one last chance with her.  Only, things are a little more complicated that he ever knew.

In Things That Go Bump in the Night, Summer has a secret about what she really is, and Tyler is the only man who can help her.  These two tore up the sheets and left me panting for more.

 

Walk Through Fire by Laura Baumbach

Caleb Archer is starting to get desperate.  In the past 157 years, he has had to go through the same agonizing battle, fighting against demons in the hope that this time he will win.  This time he is determined to win, to save his lover, Andrew Wright, and set him free.

Walk Through Fire is a touching look at what one man will do for love.  I loved Caleb and was thoroughly entranced by his story.  The secondary characters were interesting and Caleb and Drew were captivating.  I was cheering for their reunion the entire time.

 

Devilish Good Time by J.M. Snyder

Jacob is starting to get desperate.  He has finally decided to go to a fraternity keg party, but it isnít exactly his scene; until he spies Bobby Montague, the one person who ties him up in knots.  The last thing he expects is to have Bobby actually talk to him and invite him out for a drive.

In Devilish Good Time, Jacob and Bobby set out to have some fun, not expecting the excitement that is about to ensue.  I loved Jacob, his insecurities were obvious and Bobby was the perfect guy to pull him out of his shell.

 

Creatures of the Night, Creatures of Delight is a collection of tales that encompasses new love and old, new fears and ancient ones.  Each story is different enough to make Creatures of the Night, Creatures of Delight interesting, but a common thread interweaves throughout.  I loved this anthology, and while the last two stories were my favorites, there should be something for everyone in Creatures of the Night, Creatures of Delight.
