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.

I would consider the second and third stories to be better, because the narrators do an excellent job. The first one was horrible. or maybe it was the writing. Probably mostly the writing, but the narrator didn't help.
The Story by Jessica Sims (3rd Story), with the Molly Harper's (2nd Story) a close second.
The third story in it's entirety.
Don't give up on the book because the first story/narration sucks. The other two stories are worth a credit on thier own!
I love Molly Harper as her stories usually have me cracking up and this one did not fail, i was at work and i had to bite my lips,"spoiler alert" especially the part where Sam, Lindy and Tess all behave like the three stooges. This was a great book especially on one of those horrible days at work. In regards to the first story .. well lets just say it needs alot of work and it left me wanting. The third story was good and nice way to end this medley.
This title is for persons who like the quirkier side of the paranormal genre, so if that describes you then this book is for you. Hope you enjoy, I certainly did, can't wait for more books from Molly
Worth the credit, but the first story is a total waste of time. Just skip it! But the second story is worth the story alone. The third story is also very good.
funny, romantic, adventure
Oh yes, it wasn't a long story but well worth the time to listen.
Very high. I adore Molly Harper!
The first story was hard to follow since there r different volumes for different characters. One character blasted out my ear drum then the next one I couldn't hear what they were saying
2nd & 3rd story were awesome. After the volume for the 1st story gets fixed I will relisten to it.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Funny and light-hearted short paranormal romance stories that are any easy listen - preferred M.H's and R.S.'s stories but they are all a simple sweet listen and, or but, they don't contain any 'hot and heavy' bits.
Worth a credit? Mmmmm, although I would prefer a bit more 'heat' to the stories, they were very enjoyable and entertaining, so it's a YES.
Okay, so I'll be honest. I didn't even listen to the first story. For some reason I just didn't like the narrator's voice.
The second story, by Molly Harper, was hands down the best story. If you've enjoyed her other books (like the Nice Girls series) you'll really enjoy this one. But, even though this narrator was perfectly fine, I missed hearing Amanda Ronconi as the narrator.
The final story, by Katie MacAlister, was incredibly predictable and the narrator was only decent. But I still thought it was pretty enjoyable.
All in all, this was an easy listen. Almost anyone who's a fan of supernatural fiction will find this a fun listen.
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
Summary: Buy this book simply for the 2nd story written by Molly Harper.
The first book by Jessica Sims is simply ridiculous. Noelle is supposed to be a 'Guardian', meaning she can banish demons and imps, etc., etc... but the way this character is written and voiced was horrible! She sounds like this weak, tiny little fluff of a woman, completely indecisive, whining, pleading.. I literally had to force myself to listen to it. By the time the story reached its end I was glad I'd listened while cleaning house. At least something worthwhile had been accomplished!
Then the second story by Molly Harper started playing, and I was hooked, once again in the world of Half Moon Hollow. If you like good entertainment with laughter, this is the book for you. It starts off with our heroine seeing vegetables singing.. and I loved it. This story alone made the book worth my purchase. I will absolutely be listening to this story again!
The third story by Katie McAllister was pleasurable, although I did think the ending was a just a bit too neat and tidy. I always wonder about the relatives left behind, things like that. I might listen to this story again some day.
I agree with other reviews stating the first story is a bit painful. For me, it is hard to say if a story is good if the narrator's performance is awful.
THE SECOND STORY STARTS AT CHAPTER EIGHT.
The other two were pretty good. MH is always awesome. The last of the three kind of dragged then it was like the author got tired and wrapped it all up in a HEA.
