#27 -- Dead and Loving It by MaryJanice Davidson
From the Publisher
USA Today bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson has enchanted readers everywhere with her delicious blend of wicked humor, sizzling sex, and totally unique vision of vampires and werewolves. In this collection of four novellas she brings her beloved Wyndham werewolves (featured in her acclaimed novel Derek’s Bane) together with the vampires ruled by Betsy Taylor (from her bestselling Undead series).
Filled with equal parts of spicy heat and laugh-out-loud moments, this collection will drive Davidson’s legion of fans wild with blood-pounding delight.
I started this book with the last story—A Fiend in Need because it ties in to the Undead series and I wanted to read it before I read Undead & Unpopular. It actually ended up being my least favorite story.
All 4 of the stories involve werewolves who are loosely tied into the Wyndham pack that we meet in Derik’s Bane. What I enjoyed is that each of the stories is about a pack member who is different and finds love in some very different mates—One a human, one a vampire, one a fairy, and one a fiend. The stories loosely tie into one another with the exception of the last one so that it almost seems like you are reading one long story instead of 4 shorts. I enjoyed the book and am glad that I finally picked it up and read it.
