Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Splitting the difference between Desperate Housewives and The X-Files, this paranormal romance brings magic and monsters to the steamy suburbs in four satisfying novellas about the town of Mysteria. Bestseller Grant kicks off the volume with the story of the demon responsible for leading a group of supernatural settlers to establish Mysteria, a Colorado haven for the paranormal. Centuries after his "random act of demonic kindness," Satan casts the demon out of Hell, naked and mortal, to be discovered, sheltered and eventually loved by the town's female pastor. Gena Showalter's contribution is the most lusty of the bunch, following a hunky psychic who has visions that the witch he's desperately in love with will be the death of him. In P.C. Cast's novella, a frustrated high school teacher, descendant of the only nonmagical founder of Mysteria ("Her magic worked like her marriages. Not at all"), is pursued by a young werewolf she used to teach. Bestseller MaryJanice Davidson follows another werewolf, this one in the market for a house—which turns out to be haunted by a sarcastic ghost—in an enjoyable but underdeveloped episode. There's magic, heat and lots of laughs in these loosely conjoined stories, and it's obvious the authors had a great time putting the book together; the growing audience for paranormal romance should have nearly as good a time reading it.

“Splitting the difference between Desperate Housewives and The X-Files, this paranormal romance brings magic and monsters to the steamy suburbs in four satisfying novellas about the town of Mysteria. There’s magic, heat, and lots of laughs.”—Publishers Weekly

“Charming, funny, and quite offbeat, this collection highlights the vast talents of these authors. The perfect escape read!”—RT Book Reviews

“Four enchanting paranormal romantic novellas.”—Midwest Book Review

“This [anthology] has all of the elements that I just love to read about. I had such fun reading this book. I really didn’t want these stories to end. I loved the town of Mysteria and hope these authors see fit to visit the townspeople . . . again!”—The Best Reviews

Desperate Housewives meets Charmed, this collection of novellas is as varied in its content as the authors who’ve written them. From sweet and passionate to dark and sexy, the werewolves, vampires, demons, witches, fairies, and humans of Mysteria are as engaging and fun as they are diverse and compelling.”—Fresh Fiction

`Mortal In Mysteria' by Susan Grant

Harmony Faithfull has been having a crisis of faith - faith in herself, her calling, her choices and her faith period. All she wants is a sign that she is doing what she needs to do to keep her faith. She was not expecting the sign to turn up naked in her garden. Everyone deserves a second chance even naked demons - right?

Susan Grant writes with a wit and feeling that draws the reader in. `Mortal in Mysteria' has the reader jump onto the bandwagon of someone you would not normally feel friendly towards. Both Harmony and Damon are wonderful characters that I enjoyed getting to know and hope to see again.

`Alone Wolf' by Mary Janice Davidson

Cole Jones bought a house in Mysteria from the sexy realtor Charlie. Having never really found a place he felt was his home, he had to buy the house in Mysteria. It was a place he never thought he would find, a place that would feel right. Charlie is just that extra bonus. Or was the house the bonus and Charlie the prize? Only time would tell.

Sigh. `Alone Wolf' is perfect. The idea of finding a place to belong, and someone to love you just as you are, is just right. Ms. Davidson writes with her usual cleverness and sharp wit. Every book of hers I have read makes me want to read more and more. `Alone Wolf' reinforces this with humor and intelligence.

`The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them' by Gena Showalter

Genieve Tawdry, lovesick witch, has been stalking Hunter Knight for years using every trick that can get her closer to her target with the whole town watching. Hunter keeps pulling away, but tonight she will get close to him. No matter what it takes.

`The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them' is a tale about the sturdiness of love and what a person is willing and capable of doing in the pursuit of it. `The Witches of Mysteria and the Dead Who Love Them' is an amusing and delightful story with some dark edges to keep interest peaked.

`Candy Cox and the Big Bad Wolf' by P. C. Cast

Stuck with an unfortunate moniker, Candy Cox had the added benefit or curse of not being magically susceptible. No one in Mysteria could throw a spell on her or to her. That does not stop her friends from helping her out by throwing magic around her.

`Candy Cox and the Big Bad Wolf' is a beautiful tale of friendship being helpful and harmful to a person. The dealing with repercussions of events in the past, present and working towards the future. P.C. Cast adds depth to the classic bad boy tale.

Mysteria is a collection of four tales that are arranged around the town of Mysteria and its residents. From the high school's Fighting Fairies to the pie shop where the cooking is done by royalty, the tales are engrossing. All four are captivating and believable in their own ways while mixing together beautifully. From beginning to end, Mysteria is truly enjoyable making you want to drive and find this town to spend the night or forever. I have read stories by all the authors in the past and now I want to go and find their back lists and enjoy some more of their wonderful writing styles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I finally bought it. Aug. 2 2006

I had debated about buying this book even though I had been looking forward to its release. Some of the early reviews put me off but I'm glad I finally bought it and read it. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories. I guess I was able to overlook some of the other criticisms of story continuity, etc. I'm sure that this is a challenging type of book to write with 4 different authors having to weave some continuity into several main characters. Suffice to say that I think if anyone is hesitating due to some reviews that they should give this book a chance. I couldn't stop reading it once I got it and was very entertained by all of the stories.
