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.

My advice...skip the Katie MacAlister story and move on to the other two. That is, unless you're into vampire erotica, which I am NOT. I love Molly Harper's wit and will check out some of Jessica Sims now but oh my, the first book is not my taste at all!
Just skip this and purchase a full-length Molly Harper book. The Nice Girls series is wonderful.
The entire first book...Shades of Gray...I mean, really?!
molly harper funny as always love the story line that pulls in others from other books love the mess of people the last story ok covered time the first story just could not make myself get into it it was not drawing.
wife,mother, hard worker... and lover of romance and wit
3 fun stories that can be stand alone or can enhance your previous knowledge of the series they relate too.
they are in the undead (sexy vampire) genre, and are worth a second listen
First let me say, I'm a huge Molly Harper fan. And that is the main reason I bought this book. The first story was narrated so badly. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard. I just couldn't stand it. I tried to listen, but after 5 minutes I had to find the next story. The third story was ok. But I think after the first story being so bad, he just tainted my view of the whole book. Save your money and your time and purchase something else.
I only got this book for the Molly Haper story which is the 2nd of three stories. The first story is a total waste of time. Sucked eggs. Why Molly Harper allowed her stuff to be published with this garbage is beyond me. Hopefully she will publish her own book of short stories and this one will show up in it!
I purchased this for the Molly Harper story more than anything and was not disappointed. A cup of humor, a dash of old friends and a pinch of vampire culture - cooking style. It's a great story I've already relistened to it again. I think it's worth the credit for Molly's story alone.
I could not even get past the first few chapters. I love Molly Harper books but this book has too little of her influence and way too much of the other writers. Terrible!
The performers did not have much to work with.
I didn't read the print version.
I love Molly Harper and her female heroine is funny, witty, and a little exaperating!
I missed Amanda Ronconi for Molly Harper's story, she is the best!
All in all, I thought the stories were fun, especially Molly Harper.
I usually like at least two of these authors,the other I'm not familiar with. That being said, this book was so beyond terrible I may never buy a book from any of these authors again. I only got 1/4 of the way through this book and had to stop.
The characters were ALL irritating, always either over the top condesending or mewling milk sops.
The story line has been so over used I can't believe they went with it. No thought was put into the plot at all.
The narration was as over the top as the characters.
Over all a terrible choice!
I bought this book because I absolutely love all of the books in the Jane Jamison series by Molly Harper, and I was really hoping to find more authors I would like. I hated the first story by Katie MacAlister. I kept listening and waiting to start liking it, but the characters are awful. I can't figure out if it's the story or the narrator that ruined it for me. I loved Molly Harper's story, which I knew I would. I found that I really liked the third story, Out With a Fang by Jessica Simms and I'm looking forward to buying one of her full length stories. I would recommend this book for the second & third stories only.
