My Review
I received a copy of this book from Kensington for a honest review. It is a collection of three stories from authors Hannah Howell, Erica Ridley and Diana Cosby. All three stories have a tale of love and vampires and are all very enjoyable. If you like several stories in one book that are a quick read I would say pick this one up.

Dark Secret by Hannah Howell
In this story Murdina is trying to work and make money in order to find what family she has left. She takes work as a maid and soon meets Sir Baldwin. She is told to spy on him but she soon begins to fall for him. Sir Gillanders Baldwin isn't who or what he seems to be and he realizes Murdina may just be his mate. The two of them go on the run from people who don't want them to be together. Very enjoyable short story the love match and action keep you interested. 

Highland Vampire by Diana Cosby
This story has an added paranormal being in Fey's are involved as well. Rowan is on the run from an angry town and she comes across Aedan. She helps heal him and they form a bond even knowing they can not be together as it is forbidden from both fey and vampires. As they struggle to take back what belongs to Aedan they grow more in love with each other. Rowan soon finds her fey family isn't going to just stand by and let them be together so they have fights all around. This story kept me hooked to see just if they would end up together or would be tore apart forever. 

Never Been Bitten by Erica Ridley
In Never Been Bitten Elspeth is asked to see if Mr. Macane just a charming rake or a vampire. She finds herself alone with him to see whether he is one or not when she ends up biting him. He stirs up more than lust with her and she is very confused as to what he is and more important just what has her mother been hiding from her. Seems her mother knows exactly who and what Mr. Macane is and wants to run. Elspeth and Cain are falling for each other and want to be together no matter what. This was my favorite of the three stories. I enjoy the time period that it is placed in and the story line was just great. 

Pick this up for three great short stories that have action, love and paranormal.
