Hot passion and the paranormal are expertly intertwined in this seductive new anthology. These stories, by proven and rising stars, run the gamut from humorous to dangerous to scorchingly sexy, providing something for everyone. The moon has always had a powerful effect on lovers, and these four stories explore the highs and lows. Picking up this anthology will be money well spent.

First up is bestselling Knight's "Moon Dance," which continues her Dire Wolf stories. In a desperate attempt to change the fate of her people and herself, hereditary dire wolf Elena Livingston risks everything by asking bitten dire wolf Lucas Rollings to be her champion.

Rising star Kantra follows with "Between the Mountain and the Moon," where a young woman's hiking trip turns into a sexy and dangerous encounter with the Fae. "Driftwood" is New York Times bestseller Davidson's offering. A hole in the beach throws a Wyndham werewolf and a vampire together -- literally. What is the saying about opposites attract?

Finally, hot newcomer Sunny dishes up "Mona Lisa Three," which chronicles the further adventures of the mixed-blood Monere Queen Mona Lisa and her devastatingly sexy entourage of men. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 336 pp., $7.99)
