There's something for everyone in Davidson's anthology, which gleefully explores the mating lives of vampires, mermaids and werewolves. Snarky wit and the usual offbeat weirdness that follows Davidson's protagonists ensure a truly fun-filled tale.

First up is "Undead and Wed: A Honeymoon Story," which has Queen Betsy and King Sinclair heading to New York for their honeymoon. Nothing, as usual, goes as planned. In "Survivors," survival TV star Con Conlinson finds himself adrift in a row boat and in danger of dying on the ocean, until a sexy and persistent mermaid named Reanesta turns up.

Finally, there's "Speed Dating, Werewolf Style -- or, Ow, I Think You Broke the Bone." All her packmates seem to be getting hitched, and werewolf Cain doesn't want to be unmarried at 30, so she insists that her best friend Saul hook her up -- with fairly disastrous results.
