Publisher's Summary

In "Shades of Gray" by Katie MacAlister, Noelle is a Guardian: a demon-wrangler, imp-banisher, and all-round secret protector of humans from the Otherworld. While working on the set of a ghost-busting reality show in a haunted castle, she meets a sexy vampire, and together they prevent a Master Demon from killing everyone in the castle.

In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man. Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

Jessica Sims's "Out With a Fang" features Ruby Sommers, a lonely were-jaguar who signs up for a blind date through the paranormal dating agency Midnight Liaisons. When she arrives, she finds out that her date, a vampire, was the human she'd been in love with four years ago but was forced to dump.

    Story
    "Take two..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    with different narration. I just couldn't get into the story because the main narrator's voice and pronunciation were annoying. I didn't listen past the second chapter.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Different voice, better pronunciation, inflection


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    NO


    Could you see The Undead in My Bed being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I wasn't able to get far enough into the story to know.

    Story
    "I can't believe I read the whole thing!!!!!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    absolutely no one! the 1st and 3rd books made me want to puncture my own eardrums!! god awful writing and someof the worst narration I have ever suffered through!


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Harper absolutely! the other two, probably, under pain of violent death! their stories were beyond bad. these stories were the first time I wanted the main character to die early in the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    NO!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Pain!!


    Any additional comments?

    reading the first book was bad, but it was nowhere near the agony I felt during the third story! Even suspension of disbelief was not enough to protect me from these awful works. If it weren't for Harper's story this would have been unbearable.

    Story
    "An unhappy company!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not having either of the 2 books included with Molly Harper's story--which is actually available stand-alone. As there is no information re: which stories are being presented, it turned out to be a huge let-down, plus the last story--by Jessica Sims--was impossibly insipid and performed in an unbelievably irritating style...!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money on this collection--just get Molly Harper's story by itself.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Absolutely the worst."

    It was horrible. The narrator was absolutely the worst I've ever heard. I hated all of it. I can't find a single thing good about it.

    What did you love best about The Undead in My Bed?

    Molly Harper, you never disappoint me! Sexy, fun, hilarious and intriguing!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Undead in My Bed?

    Molly Harper's sense of humor of course!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Shades of Gray was decent but not great.
    I really didn’t care for Out With a Fang at all.

    I'd recommend it with the warning, it's not their best work.

    Disappointment. I was hoping for so much more and I felt they didn't really pull it off.

    "Loved the book but.."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I hated the voice of the woman that read it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline and how the other characters from her other books made an apperance.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I thought her accent was awful!


    Was The Undead in My Bed worth the listening time?

    No. I ended up reading it instead. I couldn't stand the lady's voice to get past the 2nd chapter. It was a waste of my money purchasing this book in audio virsion.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish she would have used Amanda Ronconi!

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Very good group of stories :D"

    Overall this was a pretty good group of stories.

    Shades of Gray by Katie MacAlister

    3 stars

    I haven't read anything by this author before. This was a nice story but I had a little bit of an issue getting in to it. It would probably have been better if I understood the backgroup of the world the story is in. Noelle is a Guardian (some sort of demon hunter) and meets a Vampire, Gray. Through some sort of connection between Guardians and "Dark Ones" (aka Vampires) she decides they're meant to be together but he denies it. He has some demon problems and doesn't want to involve her (even though it's what she does). Things work out in the end. It's a nice story but with it being so short I don't think I got enough background to make all the elements work for me. It would probably be fine for someone already familiar with the series and world this was set in.

    Undead Sublet by Molly Harper

    4.5 stars

    This was a really enjoyable story. I wasn't too sure what to expect but I've enjoyed other Half Moon Hollow books and figured I've give it a try (I actually listened to this when Audible.com gave the audio version of this story to members for free on Valentines day out side of this compilation of stories).

    Tess and Sam are great together although at first it's kind of hard to tell. This is because they initially meet under awkward circumstances, getting forced to live under the same roof in an underhanded move by Sam's soon to be ex-wife. Neither of them are willing to give in and they end up bashing heads with each other throughout the first part of the story. Their efforts against each other (in a rather fun/brutal prank war) in the beginning are just hilarious. I've always loved Molly Harper's sense of humor in her books and this one hits the humor mark as normal. Along with the story about Sam and Tess there's also interaction with other Half Moon Hollow folk from the other books which adds to the fun.

    I liked the way Tess and Sam ended up making friends and then working together. It works well and I enjoyed seeing them grow their relationship. I do wish it had been a longer story though...Although I enjoyed the story and really liked how it ended I wouldn't have minded a little more development at the end of the story when they're finally getting together. That's my only complaint about this story (I almost gave it 5 stars...if it had been a little longer I think I would have gone for 5). I really enjoyed this and would highly recommend it, esp for Half Moon Hollow/Molly Harper fans. :D(

    Out With a Fang by Jessica Sims

    4-4.5 stars

    This was a really good story! I've never read anything by this author but I enjoyed this story enough that I'll definitely have to try out more from her.

    Ruby is a were-jaguar. She's lonely and still pining for an old love (he was human and she was forced to break it off with him). Her sister convinces her to try a dating service for the supernatural and Ruby ends up on a blind date. It ends up being a very blind date when she actually is asked to wear a blindfold. During the date she ends up ripping it off in annoyance and finds herself face to face with the man she's been pining for over the last 4 years.

    Michael is a Vampire. He has been for the last 4 years. He was turned shortly after his and Ruby's relationship ended. He wanted to reconnect with Ruby but ends up doing it the wrong way and their "blind date" goes bad. Things get worse when, after the date, Michael gets attacked by a bounty hunter. Ruby helps him and keeps him safe. Being on the run forces them to be together and to reconnect.

    Ruby is strong and her and Michael and able to survive against the bounty hunter chasing them but there's the issue of Michael needing to feed. Ruby is forced to help him with this issue and things get a hot between them but they have trouble opening up about their feelings for each other. They struggle to get through and things go south at the end. Michael is forced to drastic measures to save Ruby but he does save her and the story has a very sweet and satisfying ending. I really liked this story and will have to try more by this author. I'd recommend it. :D

    All 3 narrators did a good job.

    "Wish it was longer but it's only short stories..."

    These are good stories, but alas, they're only short stories of Hot Vampires falling in love. If you like Molly Harper's books, then you'll like this one. It's a good book but I wish the stories were longer.

    "Only the second story is worth it"

    If you have no idea what else to use your credit on and you really really love Molly Harper then use your credit on this. The first story makes very little sense well is skipable. The second short story is great. Molly Harper pulls you into a nice short Half Moon Hollow tale. It feels like one of her novels on a small scale with all the characters you came to love: Jane Jameson, Dick and Andrea Cheney and Gabriel. The third story is just OK. Its listenable but the story is thin not well developed and occasionally irritating. So I would only recommend this if you truly love Molly Harper and don't want to miss any Half Moon Hollow happenings.
