Curl up with this delightfully dangerous collection of short stories, aimed at making the heart grow colder.

Love sometimes requires restraints…. In Tiffinie Helmer’s “Heartless,” Roxie Scott moonlights as a dominatrix, trying to survive the financial cost of her divorce, until her clients start turning up dead.

A mystery turns personal in Alex Bledsoe’s “Tantrabobus,” when Professor Tanna Tully of “the Firefly Witch” series, leads a team of graduate students in paranormal studies to investigate the ghost of a woman who burned to death on her wedding day.

A jilted mistress is after revenge In V.R. Barkowski’s “Just a Lie,” and a Homicide Inspector must choose between revealing a truth that will destroy lives or ignoring the savage fury of a woman scorned.

Can an immortal blood drinker find redemption? In Erica Hayes’ “Unforgiven,” Lisette, who long ago learned the price of pleasure, meets an ancient enemy, a dark prince and lover who rekindles her forbidden thirst for power — and blood.

CIA operative and bioterrorism expert Mackenzie Conley comes face to face with a madman obsessed with possessing her in Lizbeth Lipperman’s SWEEPERS: A Kiss To Die For, but soon discovers escaping from her mountain prison is the least of her worries.

A broken heart leads to rebellion in Charlie Holmberg’s “Salt and Water,” in which a beautiful slave is tortured to make her cry tears that possess healing powers. Her keeper’s generosity may be the key to her escape, but even the soft-hearted slaver has secrets to hide.

When two worlds collide, chaos is inevitable, in Coreene Callahan’s “Fury of Fate,” in which Sasha Cooper embarks on a night of passion with a complete stranger who turns out to be a Dragonkind warrior. Her dream-come-true may turn out to be her worst nightmare.

Sherry Papers knows that love hurts, in S.G. Redling’s “The True Love of Sherry Papers,” and she isn’t afraid to prove it. But when the love of her life forgets that important fact, she’ll stop at nothing to remind him.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

I was excited to get this because Lizbeth Lipperman is one of my favorite authors and her short story, Sweepers, was excellent but I want more. I want to know how MacKenzie deals with the trauma she has endured. I hope there is continuing story in the works.

I also really enjoyed  Heartless by Tiffany Helmer. Roxie was quite a character and meeting up again with her crush from high school made for a very interesting story.

Some of the other stories were just not “my cup of tea”. Vampires and Dragonkind warriors are not my thing. But I found six of the eight stories enjoyable.

  1. I would love to win this set of short stories. Liz Lipperman is one of my favorites as well. Happy Valentine’s Day. Hoping my husband gets in off the road in time for us to enjoy the day.

  2. My husband has to work until 8pm, but we plan to go out to a late dinner after that (gives me extra time to get dressed up, so there’s that!) tkc4242 -at- gmail dot com

  3. My hubby is stuck in New York while I’m in South Carolina. Snow is not my friend today 🙁

  4. I would love to win this. I have no plans as my husband has died and I don’t have a person of interest as of now

  5. No plans other than staying home with my sweeties. 🙂 My tween daughter has a school dance this evening, but that’s our only plans.

  6. We have no plans, but spending time at home is rare since hubby works all hours and is rarely home, so that is a lovely prospect.

  7. What could be better reading for Valentine’s Day. I love reading short stories and collections, especially by the same author. You get a sample of the different genres they write in. Would be thrilled to win this!

  8. On Valentine’s Day my husband and I plan to share a romantic candlelight dinner. Thanks for the great giveaway. Happy Valentine’s Day!
