This book came from the library, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

“Fire and Ice” (The League: Nemesis Rising, 3.5)

The Stories

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “Fire and Ice“is not up to her usual standards, although not as bad as Paradise City. Cute but just too twee with the crippled assassin who rescues the beaten virgin princess who in turn rescues the pain-ridden prince who in turn rescues the dead lover…

Maggie Shayne‘s “Daydream Believer” is a sweet romance with a nasty betrayal involving a hopeful psychic and a thrice-cursed cop.

Suzanne Forster‘s “Shocking Lucy” was terrific. A totally unexpected blaze of light in which the electrician pursues the mediator to a pulsating conclusion.

Virginia Kantra‘s “Midsummer Night’s Magic” is a lovely romantic tale of lost love, found love, the sidhe equinox, and the trials of taking back from the faeries.
