An interesting group of stories, not all romance, for readers who like their paranormal creatures varied and their werewolves more animal than human.

“Where Darkness Lives“ by Ivy has Sophia wanting to hire a bodyguard, and ending up with alpha Luc, nor realizing he already has an employer who has her safety in mind. In Fox’s “Murder on Mysteria Lane” Heather McPhee must go undercover as vampire Lucien Mead’s trophy wife to find a murderer, a fake relationship that soon begins to feel real. When Christine Price gives up her old life to move in with her boyfriend and his son, she discovers she may be in danger of giving up her life — literally — in Dane’s ”Werewolves in Chic Clothing.” Tiffany Winters moves into the neighborhood of the Diamondfang werewives in Haines’ “What’s Yours Is Mine” and she’s considered a good candidate for the pack by all but one, whose suspicions may be more accurate than the others are willing to admit.
