Burning Up - Angela Knight, Nalini Singh, Virginia Kantra & Meljean Brook


Synopsis:
Bring these four authors together and it's sure to ignite a spark...
Angela Knight pairs a vampire warrior and his seductive captor in a battle against demonic predators.
Nalini Singh returns to the world of her Psy-Changeling series as a woman in lethal danger finds an unlikely protector-and lover.
Virginia Kantra continues the haunting tales of the Children of the Sea in her story of a wounded soldier rescued by an enigmatic young woman.
Meljean Brook launches a bold new steampunk series about a woman who strikes a provocative-and terrifying-bargain for freedom.

My Opinion:
Since this book is four short stories of paranormal romance, I'm gonna break each one down.
Whispers of Sin was pretty good for the way it comes together. I loved the idea that Emmett is a changeling. That's too cool, and a first for me as a reader. Very hot romance with a great ending.
(3/5)
Blood and Roses, I enjoyed this one a little more than the first, only because it had vampires. The story was completely different too, with a woman seducing a vampire, as a bribe of sorts. And oh, so very hot!!!
(4/5)
Shifting Sea, okay my first time reading a mermaid story, and I'm hooked! Line and sinker! This was a fabulous story of love that should and is taboo, but one that can persevere. A great read!
(5/5)
Here There Be Monsters is my favorite and ironically the last one. I still have no idea what exactly the characters are, besides human, but man, do I love Steampunk! The girl character, Ivy, built machines that can fight. That really was a cool aspect for me. Then the romance was hot, hot, hot! I couldn't wait to finish the story to see how everything turned out, and yet disappointed there wasn't more. By far, a fantastic read!
(5/5)
As a whole I really enjoyed all four authors and would read them all again. I look forward to more paranormal characters and Steampunk stories!
(5/5)

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
