Ho. Ly. Crap.

I'll admit that I didn't really know what I was getting into when I started it. I've read anthologies before but very few that have this many full-length novels that cover so many different romance sub-genres. But I have to say that I'm immensely glad I was given the chance to review this collection.

The most enjoyable aspect is that each story is different. There is no one genre to tie them all together except romance. Thank God for that because each story highlighted individuals so unique they couldn't have been confined to one sub-genre.

Perhaps my favorite of all is Releasing Rage by Cynthia Sax. I'd just finished reading a scifi/fantasy romance by another author and was looking for something that would maintain the high I'd gotten from reading it. Rage was perfect. Joan was the perfect mate for Rage. The compassion she felt for cyborgs was borne from an experience years before when one rescued her. Not everyone shares her sentiment though and being assigned to care for Rage, who suffered abuse and torture from his previous handler, proves that point. And while the sex is hot, there's an undeniable sweetness to this story that melted my heart and overrode all the bad they'd both suffered before meeting each other.

This anthology was incredible. Hot. Sexy. Dark. Seductive. Romantic. If you love any of the genres listed above, if you love any of the authors listed below, I hope you give this anthology a chance.
Some of the stories might suit you, some might not, but I hope you find at least one in this collection to enjoy as much as I did.
