Unleash Your Story Read-a-Thon Finish

Posted on: September 30, 2009

First, the final set of reviews – all from short stories I’ve read over the past couple days.

From the Cravings Anthology:

Dead Girls Can’t Dance by MaryJanice Davidson

Andrea Mercer barely remembers becoming a vampire, and the last couple years are a blur. She’s dug up on the beach by Daniel, the boy she had a crush on before she died. Andrea’s planning on going to the new Vampire Queen, hoping to be destroyed. But Daniel insists on accompanying her and trying to foil her plans…

Originally Human by Eileen Wilks

Molly knows it’s almost time to move on. She’s a succubus, and she lives among humans, but since she cannot age she knows she can only stay a short while in any one place. Of course, when an injured and disoriented naked man shows up, she has to try to help him – without preying on him. Strange things start happening, and people are after the man, who cannot remember who he is or where he came from. Neither is what they seem – and both are in danger from their pasts.

Survivors by MaryJanice Davidson from Dead Over Heels

Con is a TV star, whose shows are all about survival. However, when he ends up stranded in a life boat on the Pacific, it is the mermaid Reanesta who teaches Con how to survive. But Reanesta is an odditiy among mermaids, and Con has to convince her that he’s more than just grateful for the rescue.

Hunter’s Oath by Jaid Black from Playing Easy To Get

Sofia is lost since the death of her brother, and goes to Alaska to try to sort things out. She is kidnapped and sold to strange men in an isolated cavern, then finds herself stripped naked and sold to the highest bidder in an underground Viking society. To make things worse, she’s given a drug which makes her crave sex.

The Countess’s Pleasure by Emma Holly from Hot Spell

Georgiana, The Countess of Ware, has a problem – she’s lonely. She also has a secret, and she needs someone outside her social circle to help her. She goes to a ladies nightclub, and is fascinated by the Yama exotic dancer. He is equally drawn to her, and she hires him for a night of pleasure – but they find that walking away from each other is more difficult than either expected.
