What did you love best about Literal Leigh Romance Diaries: The Complete Collection Boxed Set?

It's fun and the porn is kept to a minimum. The stories are good. While it drove me nuts how many times Leigh jumps to conclusions and made me want to smack my own forehead, she was delightful. The shenanigans they all got into were amusing.

Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin....

Vampire bounty hunter Nathaniel Newburg follows his mark into Nocturne Falls, a place where it's easy for anyone to hide and blend in. At first it seems as though he has his prey cornered, only to confront a beautiful feline-shifter, Camille Nahuel, instead. She dances around the floor with sultry steps, instructing a ballroom class, and dances around his heart even faster. Oh, tango, the game is on. Can Nathaniel control his annoyance long enough to finish his job and save his love?

So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood.

My name is Venus. I'm a 200-year old killing machine and I'm trading in my daggers and sword for a sparkly dress and an obscene swimsuit. Tiny strips of Lycra are not my typical battle wear, but when in Oklahoma... Armed with a fairly decent attitude, two debatably heterosexual insane old ladies, a woman I'd wanted to kill less than eight hours ago, and the possible love of my undead life, I'm in over my head with this. Of course I have no clue what this is going to entail, but that's never stopped me before.

It's TGIF, which means in a few hours I'll be tossing back a few martinis with my best friend, Brenda. First, though, I need to deal with my crazy new client, a werewolf who thinks it's okay to pee on his neighbor's flowers because she's a witch. What a shame he's obviously got a few screws loose, because bad-boy Pete is seriously hot. His insanity must be contagious, because I did the craziest thing. I let my nemesis in the courtroom, assistant DA Anthony Vanderson, seduce me.
