Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A vagueness of purpose colors this awkward anthology, which features four tales of romantic suspense. The volume starts out on a high note with Feehan's (Dark Symphony, etc.) whimsical romance ("Magic in the Wind") between a mystical security expert and a tortured retiree whose knowledge of the nation's defense systems has made him a target of possible terrorists. Even though the story feels like a set-up for a new series, the heroine and her six gifted sisters are compelling. Sutcliffe's fans, on the other hand, will find few thrills in "Hot August Moon," which is more a teaser for her recent serial killer thriller, Bad Moon Rising, than a fully fleshed out story. Anyone who's read that novel won't be surprised by the twist at the end of this paranormal mystery, and those who haven't may feel cheated by its unresolved denouement and low level of suspense. A similar lack of intrigue marks Brand's (Cullen's Bride, etc.) "After Midnight," an abrupt romance that exposes the schemings of a few small-town residents, as well as Wilks's (Midnight Choices, etc.) intriguing but underdeveloped "Only Human," a Laurell K. Hamilton-like tale of an alternate San Diego in which werewolves are part of the general populace. While existing fans may enjoy these tidbits, new readers will be hard-pressed to come away with a taste for more.

About the Author

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

Lover, Beware has a very good set of intriguing stories. The first one by Christine Feehan is my absolute favorite Magic in the Wind about a group of seven sisters and their adventures. This one is out Sarah the oldest and her relationship with Damon her soon to be lover. The second Hot August Moon by Katherine Sutcliff was to me the hardest one to get into. I think of the four this one was the weakest for me, I also think that because it was pre-equal to her book Bad Moon Rising I may have just not connected with it. The third was by Fiona Brand After was also to me a very interesting read. The final story by Eileen Wilks Only Human is my second favorite. Lily reminds me of a very naive Anita Blake and Rule who is a very hunky and good looking werewolf has a real interest in Lily who is a detective looking into several murders. A very likable and interesting story. I hope that these four get together again and do another anthology. Maybe a continuation of these stories. Please Christine write more of 7 sisters stories,and Eileen a continuation of Lily and Rule. Please.....................

Feehan's Magic in the Winds is well written, with great character development. The only drawback is that due to the constraints of anthologies, the story was not quite as good as it could have been. Feehan's Magic really needed to be novel in length in order to explore all of the possibilites in this plot. Its obvious this is a setup for another series from Feehan - I'm looking forward to more; in particular the story between Hannah and Jonas.
Katherine Sutcliffe's Hot August Moon was a bit of a let down. I haven't read anything from this author before, and I won't go out of my way to find more of her work. It's very possible that my attitude stems from the ending of this story - it was not resolved and I'm a person who needs closure :) However, with more work, this plot could be intriguing. Perhaps the conclusion will be more intriguing.
Fiona Brand's After Midnight is part of the reason I bought this series (other than the fact that I'm a rabid Feehan fan). I have enjoyed all of Brand's other works; and yes, I have them all :) The only drawback again was that due to the constraints inherent in anthologies, this story wasn't quite what it could be. That said, if you are a fan of alpha males and hot sex scenes, you may enjoy this story. I'm impatiently waiting for future releases of Brand's work.
Eileen Wilk's Only Human was a huge surprise. I love paranormals, and werewolf stories in particular. As a huge fan of LKH's work, I really enjoy the novelty of stories in which myths/legends such as vampires and werewolves are part of the everday world. I found the hero, Rule to be sexy and fascinating; the heroine, Lily, to be plucky and competent. One thing in particular that I really enjoyed was the comparison of familial and social interactions between the two characters.

My least favorite form of reading is anthologies! I will buy them because my favorite author has 1/4, and hope that the other 3/4 is at least enjoyable. This time, 2 of the 4 met my expectations, at least in part.
Christine Feehan's "Magic in the Wind" is really toooooo much of a setup for a new series. She crams too much information about the 7 sisters into this one short novelella. Readers can definitely see a new series of books coming - and it appears to be like the series Norah Roberts did recently. She could have possibly made it more interesting by having Sarah handle the situation only with Damon's assistance. Then he could be amazed by the fact that there are 7, yes 7 of them and that one of the 7 will have seven daughters. Will it be Sarah and Damon? No suspense there, we've already been told which sister will have the 7 daughters. Yes, it is enjoyable but not up to her 5 star standards. I would give it 4 stars; but 4 stars from Feehan is still better than a lot of 5 stars from others. Give me Carpathians! I love those Carpathians!
Katharine Sutcliffe's "Hot August Moon" pullls an FBI profiler back to her hometown to work on a case with an old lover. We learn the details of the killings, we know all about the old lover but NOTHING is solved in the book. It is a complete setup for another novel. Yeah, FBI profiler books are big right now but.... I would give it 2 stars for being a complete tease.
Fiona Brand's "After Midnight" is really about two old want-to-be-lovers who were star-crossed because they had been married to others. We are told there has been a murder/rape and that Michael is a suspect. We learn that Jane is being stalked by the bad guy, who interestingly enough picks the night Michael is in bed with Jane to come after her. Dumb, huh?

Just a warning: I only read Christine Feehan's story in this book. This is the only thing I am reviewing.
This story was obviously rushed by Ms. Feehan and the publishers. Ms. Feehan's preferred genre is the novel, not the short story and it shows. This story was choppy and not well organized. It is clear that a lot was missing from the story and it could have been told better in a novel on its own. I'm a visual person and as I read, the story unfolds like a movie. With this story, I felt like I was trying to view it through a lot of snow and horizontal lines on my TV. Ms. Feehan's publisher should provide a good editor with a stong background in short stories to assist Ms. Feehan on her next story. I have no doubt that an author with Ms. Feehan's talents can conquer the short story, if given the proper tools.
That said, what saved this story for me was Ms. Feehan's ability in character development. It is clear in all of her books, that Ms. Feehan has a true gift of capturing her characters so the reader is instantly enthralled. We care about these characters; they become one of the family. I will continue to read Christine Feehan. I just wish the publisher would accommodate her strengths and help her get over her weaknesses.
