Four HOT New York Times bestselling authors. A HOT fiction quartet that will really arouse interest. In the tradition of theHOT bestselling anthology, Fantasy. Four HOT predators...Four HOT women. THIS IS HOT BLOODED...A bound man with a voracious appetite...A werewolf with human desires...A shape-shifter with one basic need...An immortal lover with a passion for mortal women. These are the stories of "Hot Blooded."

My rating:

Two out of four isn't bad, but it could be better.
Christine Feehan's Dark Hunger is the usual Carpathian/Dark Series book. Hot and sexy - and a great introduction to the stories of the five De La Cruz brothers.
Maggie Shayne disappointed me - her story didn't have the right vibe.
Emma Holly's storytelling and plot improved from the novella in Fantasy. At least it made me laugh.
Seduction's Gift by Angela Knight made me lift my eyebrows and say "Huh?!" at first - but then - wow! And let me repeat that: wow! Really hot blooded, indeed! Since this book she's on my favorite's list.
