From Fresh Fiction!! http://freshfiction.com/review.php?id=37484 This is one of the best collections of novellas I've read. All are highly entertaining, and even those with ties to the author's previous series books were easy to follow, and more importantly, enthralling. They all have small touches of whimsy, ranging from the mostly serious Out of Control to the wacky High Stakes. Most impressive, despite the shortened form each read as satisfyingly as a full-length novel. The stories I found most intriguing were Ivey's Out of Control, the first hint of her new Sentinals, series and In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall, book 3.5 in her Immortal Guardians series. Both were my first encounters with the authors' worlds but they won't be my last. The other two stories were very high quality, don't get me wrong, but something about the world building used by Ivy and Duvall connected better with my own personal taste. High Stakes is connected to Hannah Jayne's Underworld Detection Agency and Ties that Bind seems unconnected to the Nina Bangs series with which I am familiar, regardless, it was a great read. In summation, PREDATORY is worth every penny. Learn more about Predatory SUMMARY Out Of Control by Alexandra Ivy Ph.D student Angela Locke has a crush on her sexy professor, Dr. Nikolo Bartrev. When she learns he’s actually a Sentinel with extraordinary powers, she joins forces with him to catch a psychopath. But soon, their hottest pursuit is of each other... Ties That Bind by Nina Bangs Cassie Tyler agrees to sub for her friend at the funeral home where she works. But she gets more than she bargained for when a group of men attack her and a vampire comes to her rescue… In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall Immortal Richart d’Alençon can’t forget the woman who rewarded him with a sensuous kiss after he saved her from a trio of vampires. While Richart knows that loving a human can only bring trouble, the taste of forbidden lust is too great to resist… High Stakes by Hannah Jayne When vampire fashionista Nina LaShay’s design contest rival is found dead, she’s the prime suspect. Sexy photographer Pike is number two. He’s the kind of man who makes Nina salivate. But will she have to reveal herself to have him— and to save them both? Or does Pike have a secret of his own?
