    3-Stars -- Jessica Florence – Hero Holiday TrialsThis was a cute story. I would have liked to seen A.J get a full-length book of his own since he has been around since the beginning, but this short story was sweet, so I will try not to complain too much (lol).2-Stars Amelia Hutchins – Oh, Holy Knight (Wicked Knights Series)OK, so this story confused the hell of out me. First, I thought it was going to be a complete short story, but it was just the beginning of a new series coming in 2019.

First, I thought it was going to be a complete short story, but it was just the beginning of a new series coming in 2019. Second, I am not sure if I was supposed to like Callaghan or hate him? There were a little too many acrimonious exchanges between him and Erie for me to feel any connection between them apart from the sexual, and even that felt forced a lot of the time. Oh well, I guess I will have to wait and see what happens when the full-length book comes out...3-Stars S.L. Jennings – Devil’s Darling (A Se7en Sinners Short)This was another confusing as fuck story. I liked it, but I have NO clue if Darling is supposed to be Lucifers heroine or some chick he seems to be pining for? If it is the chick he is pining for, then EWWW on the whole sex scene with Darling. *lol* 2-Stars R. Scarlett – The Winter Solstice OMG...another frigging glimpse of a new book coming. I thought this was supposed to be a collection of short stories, not just tiny samples of books to come! Sigh...

    This is a review for S.L Jennings' Devil's Darling. It's no secret that I am IN LOVE with Lucifer. Yes, he's the devil, yes he's evil but there is another side to him that readers see in the Se7en Sinners Series—a good side that wants to fight the evil, that wants to help the world, that wants to reveal his love.

Though these stories are short, they were all enjoyable and gave me a very good idea of which authors I’d be adding to my very extensive TBR.Reviewing stories in an anthology, especially when they are short stories or simply the beginning chapters of one, is difficult so I’m just going to go with which stories/authors I liked the most.As far as the authors I’ve read the stories Stacey Marie Brown and Amo Jones have in here are my favs. Descending Into Madness by Stacey Marie Brown is a story inspired by Alice in Wonderland and I loved the crazy she gave us and cannot wait to see what else will be coming from this world. DYAVOL by Amo Jones is just the first few chapters of the book which is a WIP, but I was hooked and that last chapter has me making grabby hands for the final product because things are definitely going to be taking a batshit crazy sideways tilt that I know she’ll rock. In regards to the authors I’ve either yet to read or are new to me, the ones that peaked my interest the most based on their writing style and flow were Jessica Florence, Anne Malcolm, S.L. Jennings and Kim Loraine. Their stories, though short, hooked me and have quite interested in diving deeper into the worlds they have created.All in all, I really enjoyed this anthology as a whole. The offerings may be on the short side, but they all give a good idea of what all the authors have to offer a reader and while some intrigued me more than others, they were all well done in the end.~ Copy provided by Social Butterfly PR & voluntarily reviewed ~

    The fact that these are all PNR stories makes me fall more in love with this anthology. PNR has always and will FOREVER be my first book love.

She continues and continues to knock it out of the park. If you’ve read her Se7en Sinners series, then you know who our main characters are. Luc and Michael. You heard that right. LUCIFER IS BACK! And he’s better than ever. The adventures between these two bothers was in its own ball park. The hilarity between them was comedic gold. I’m going to need more of them because it was perfection. We get to meet a new character and this person brings exactly what Luc and Michael were missing. And, the ending?? I’ll say it again, YOU NEED TO READ THE SE7EV SINNER SERIES. Because, that ending left me with my jaw on the floor and begging for more. Well done! DYAVOL by Amo JonesThis short is only giving you a small piece of information on what this author’s new PNR Duet will be about. Gaaah! I want to curse this author! She is always leaving me craving more and more. Just when the story was getting good and we finally see who these men that are around Tatyana are, it abruptly ends. I believe this is Amo Jones’ first time writing PNR. I was instantly intrigued. The small world and character building was amazing. And, like I said, it left me craving more. Already added her full length part 1 novel to my TBR because I already know it’s one I’ll have to read and devour. On a Cold Winter’s Night by Kim LoraineWhy are these shorts ending like this?!?! I need more info! Gabriel and Ruby’s story captivated me right away. I need to know more about this angel and witch! What is going to happen to Ruby when she gets her memory back? How will Gabriel make it back to her? WHAT ELSE IS MICHAEL HIDING FROM THE PREMONITION? More reviews to come!

He's violent and he's oh so delicious!!! And I gotta say Michael is definitely growing on me. These fallen angels are Yummy with a capital Y!!

I tell ya, this book is great! Just by the little glimpse we get and I’m already hooked. I was devastated when it ended and I caught myself clicking my kindle searching for more. I’ve only read Amo’s dark books and she shows she’s going to be the master of paranormal also!

    After finishing the collection of paranormal stories in Such Violent Delights, I’m reminded how much I adore other worldly story lines and the kickass heroines and hot as hell heroes who are part of paranormal realms. Stacey Marie Brown – Descending Into Madness (A Winterland Tale)This is quite a unique story. I never imagined that Alice and Scrooge would work in a book, but for some reason, Brown sells that idea and leaves me wanting more. Chantal Fernando – Suck MeWho doesn’t love a good vampi After finishing the collection of paranormal stories in Such Violent Delights, I’m reminded how much I adore other worldly story lines and the kickass heroines and hot as hell heroes who are part of paranormal realms. Stacey Marie Brown – Descending Into Madness (A Winterland Tale)This is quite a unique story. I never imagined that Alice and Scrooge would work in a book, but for some reason, Brown sells that idea and leaves me wanting more. Chantal Fernando – Suck MeWho doesn’t love a good vampire story, and the fact that Fernando pens this tale about a royal blood sucker and a heroine who goes head-to-head with him makes it an intriguing one. I’ve read a lot of stories by Chantal Fernando but I’ve never read one in the paranormal realm, so I’m excited to see where Fernando takes these characters and if they’ll exude the same kind of personalities that her dominating heroes and kick butt heroines have in her other series. Jessica Florence – Hero Holiday TrialsI’ve never read a Jessica Florence story, so this gave me the perfect excuse to check out her writing and storytelling. The title definitely fits the events of the novella because the trials AJ must face to prove he’s worthy for the ‘one’ are the focus of Hero Holiday Trials.Amelia Hutchins – Oh, Holy Knight (Wicked Knights Series)Hutchins’ Fae series has one of my absolutely favorite book couples of all time, so I loved getting a look at what’s ahead for the paranormal worlds that she’s so good at creating. It looks like another feisty heroine and one heck of an alpha male are headed readers’ way and I can’t wait! S.L. Jennings – Devil’s Darling (A Se7en Sinners Short)I’m a huge fan of S.L. Jennings and her Se7en Sinners Series is one of my faves, and even though I’ll admit that I’m a Legion gal through and through that doesn’t mean that Luc hasn’t weaseled his way into my heart…there’s just something so honest about him and the fact that he sacrificed what defines him for the one who owns his blackened soul and heart makes me want him to find his own happiness. The Devil’s Darling is a preview of what’s up next for the dastardly devil and his cohorts and while Luc continues to woo me with his wicked words, his brother is who I couldn’t get enough of and I can’t wait for more havoc to be had by them and their tagalong. Amo Jones – DYAVOLThis tale definitely feels like an Amor Jones’ story; the fact that it consists of both angels and devils speaks volumes of Jones’ deliciously dark and deviant mind as well as her lighter side, but let’s be honest…I think it’s clear which side reigns and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Knox & Miers – Deck the Demons (A Halfblood Huntress Prequel)I’ve recently been introduced to this writing duo, and I’ve definitely found some new paranormal worlds that I can’t wait to experience. Readers meet Morgan and Gamble in this prequel, and I’m quite intrigued to know what’s to come for these two. Kim Loraine – On A Cold Winter’s NightHopefully, this is just the beginning of Ruby and Gabe’s story because I’m very intrigued with why Ruby’s been put in Gabe's care and if it’s a test from his Father or if there’s something else in motion as indicated at the end of the novella.Anne Malcom – Buried DestinyThis novella is incredibly dark and twisted. This is a new-to-me author, so I’ll admit that it took me a bit to get a grasp on everything and by the time that I did, the short story was over, leaving me a bit out of sorts with what’s to come for these characters. R. Scarlett – The Winter SolsticeThe Fae World is a dangerously sexy one and R. Scarlett uses that idea and runs with it in the most sensual and devious ways. I can’t wait for more from this paranormal new-to-me author. Alice K. Wayne – The Nutcrackers (A Breed Christmas Short)Balor and Remy are interested characters whose story has only just begun. I’m not quite sure what’s going to happen to these two because we aren’t privy to too many details yet, but this novella will definitely make readers want to see what happens to these two. Overall Rating: 4 Poison Apples

    Next to dark romance, paranormal romance stories are my favorite. This is a beautiful collection of stories from some fantastic authors. Each one is different and captivating in its own way. "I created every realm of Hell with my bare hands. However, nothing in the underworld could have prepared me for the soul-crushing, everlasting torment known as Walmart." Truth be told, I took this just to read S.L. Jennings's story. While I did enjoy each one of these, that one was out of this world.

"I created every realm of Hell with my bare hands. However, nothing in the underworld could have prepared me for the soul-crushing, everlasting torment known as Walmart." Truth be told, I took this just to read S.L. Jennings's story. While I did enjoy each one of these, that one was out of this world. It's from her Se7en Sinners series. It's about Lucifer, and I was flipping out over a chance to get more of him. Not only do we get more of Lucifer but we get to dive back into that world and find out what's been going on. His signature humor is still going strong, and there is a lot more to their story then what we thought.  "Ready to go?" I look up as Micheal makes his way from the Champaign Room, which is probably more like the Malt Liquor Closet. I am dying to get my hands on the 5th book of the Se7en Sinners. I didn't know we were getting one, but apparently, we are!! My heart has belonged to Lucifer since I finished those books. I hope if nothing else you read this addition to the anthology. If you haven't read the series, please get on it!!Arc in exchange for an honest review

    3.5 stars Such Violent Delights is a really good compilation of paranormal romance “short stories” by 12 different popular authors with an underlying holiday theme. I loved all the stories included in this book - ranking them 4-5 stars. They were clever, creative, and unique. The authors all did a great job with world building and creating likable, paranormal characters. This anthology has stories by some of my favorite PNR authors as well as some new authors to me.

Of those new authors, many of them I plan to check out their other books. I would ordinarily give this 4.5 stars because of the intriguing storylines, interesting characters, and originality, but this book feels like extended excerpts of upcoming full-length novels. The stories all ranged from 5-10 chapters long - just enough to suck you into the story, but then I felt hanging with having to wait for the full-length book. I enjoyed discovering new authors that I normally wouldn’t have known about, I am left frustrated and would rather have waited for the full-length novels. If you are someone who wants to get a little taste of books before they are available or read excerpts to see if you like new authors, then I would recommend this book. If you don’t want to be left hanging, then I would recommend waiting until each authors’ full-length novels are out. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.

    It’s a bit weird for me to review an anthology but I’ll try my best. I have read 3 of the stories of the fabulous authors that I read for. Stacey Marie Brown’s Descendung Into Madness a Christmas twist on Alice in wonderland. Fabulously written by this amazing author. Next one I read was Oh Holy Knight by Amelia Hutchins. This is one seriously sexy shirt read! We have to story of a powerful and a little nutty half Druid and Paladin Erie and the ever sexy Callaghan, Synthia’s Knight.

These two have so much hate sex it’s incredibly awesome!! Unfortunately this is just a glimpse of their story coming out in 2019. Then we have the one you cannot not read. Devil’s Darling. It’s the story of Luc the ever gorgeous sexy Devil himself. He’s having a hell of a time forgetting Eden from how the last Sinners book ended. Remember he made her forget him... well he’s found himself another little play toy Darling while hanging out with Michael his uptight brother. That too is a story that needs to be continued. I will definitely read the other stories because I’ve heard a lot of awesome things from some of these authors. I’ll get back to those reviews soon!!

    This anthology is amazing! Not only does my paranormal romance loving heart swoon hard for this anthology, but I have also been introduced to some incredible new authors that I cannot wait to read more from. I was initially and particularly interested in this anthology for S.L. Jennings short story that was a continuation of her Se7en Sinners series and damn, it definitely did not disappoint. I love Luc so much. He calls to my dark, paranormal loving heart and you can’t help but swoon and obsess This anthology is amazing!

He was like a little kid in a candy store, everything new, shiny and forbidden. And Darling, she was such a sweetheart. Trying to get through life with nothing but scraps and still seeing the good in life and the simplest of things. Just amazing! This anthology is worth every penny, every amount of time, and all for a good cause too.

    I've read Amelia Hutchin's Oh, Holy Knight and R.Scarlett's The Winter Solstice! Oh, Holy Knight was so steamy! Amelia just has a way of writing that pulls you in and doesn't let you go and just leaves you hanging on the edge of your sit wanting more! Erie is part druid, part Paladin (an ancient race of Knights) and was breed specifically to produce an heir for the Knight's since they were cursed. Callaghan has really pure blood for being a Knight so he feels he has more rights to keep and mate I've read Amelia Hutchin's Oh, Holy Knight and R.Scarlett's The Winter Solstice! Oh, Holy Knight was so steamy! Amelia just has a way of writing that pulls you in and doesn't let you go and just leaves you hanging on the edge of your sit wanting more! Erie is part druid, part Paladin (an ancient race of Knights) and was breed specifically to produce an heir for the Knight's since they were cursed. Callaghan has really pure blood for being a Knight so he feels he has more rights to keep and mate with Erie than any of the other Knights. What none of the Knights ever think about is that Erie is her own person and she doesn't want to belong to any of the Knights. This was a great start out for a new series and I'm so looking forward to more from Erie and Callaghan! The Winter Solstice was a great intro into (I think) the Prince's book. Emma seems like a good girl just trying to make her life better. Unfortunately for her, she meets a Fae named Reed that wants more than she has offered to him. When Reed gets offended by her, he decides he is going to make her life miserable! I can't wait to see what is in store for these characters!
