My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon - an anthology

My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon - an anthology. Science fiction. Pages 358.
This is a good anthology. There was only one story that I wasn't thrilled with.

Stalked by Armstrong - Elena and Clay are on their honeymoon. Well it's a late honeymoon due to the twins but they're trying. Unfortunately a mute is stalking them and trying to make a name for himself.

Heorot by Butcher - Harry answers a call from a friend who is trying to help a young man who's new wife and suddenly disappeared literately before his eyes. Even though Harry believes the girl simply got cold feet he starts to look into it himself. With a little help from some interesting people Harry finds himself in a right mess.

Roman Holiday or SPO-arrrrrr by Caine - Liam and Cecilia are going to board their boat and have a grand reception. Or should that be were. The crew mutiny's and the world just gets turned upside down. They just get things on track when Cecilia is kidnapped. She only wanted to have a nice ride on a boat and her husband.

Her Mother's Daughter by Elrod - Dorothy's husband went missing as they were about to cut the cake. Of course being the daughter of a mob boss she ran out of the hall and immediately hired a private eye. Between the bad guys the worse guys and maybe some bad girls who could possibly be hiding the groom.

Newlydeads by kittredge - these two magically gifted people aren't even married but they are enjoying the use of a honeymoon suite. Even with the free meal and the complimentary breakfasts these two can't quite get over the feeling that something is wrong. On top of that the newlyweds staying in the hotel keep turning up dead. (this was the one I didn't care for).

Where the heart lives by Liu - Do you believe in things that go bump in the dark? What about witches and women who turn into ravens? Can simply thinking about something change your life forever? Lucy believes.

Cat got your Tongue by Macalister - Joy and Rapheal are trying to enjoy their honeymoon at a nice old castle. The ghosts however have plans for them. Plans that very may well leave rapheal walking on all fours.

Half of being Married by Saintcrow - Kat and Mitchell are both trained to kill vampires. Problem is it would have been nice if they'd bothered to share that info with each other before they got married instead of having it accidentally come up on the honey moon.

A wulf in grooms clothing by thompson - Laura doesn't like the outdoor and nature but sam does. So she pretends too. She is really bad at pretending though and Sam finds out that she doesn't get nature. After all she brings flip flops for a hike. But that's ok she might have lied but so did he. He didn't tell her he's a werewolf.

Vampires, Interrupted by Lynsay Sands

Vampires, Interrupted by Lynsay Sands. Romance. Pages 370. This is an Arguneau Novel. Vampires aren't soulless creatures of horror in these books. They are science created just before the fall of Atlantis. Don't worry though this isn't talked about a lot and I thank her for it cause it could have been a deal breaker. Vampires want to live in the present as much as us. Unfortunately for Marguerite the demon that was her ex husband isn't staying dead. Even all these years later what he did to her is haunting her still. Luckily her new/old lifemate is understanding of what a jerk he was and look past that. Otherwise we probably wouldn't have a really good book cause it would be over fairly quickly.

Demons are Forever by Julie Kenner

Demons are Forever by Julie Kenner. Science Fiction. Pages 292. This is a book in the series Confessions of a demon-hunting soccer mom. This time Kate ends up having to tell her teenage daughter about demons and demon hunting. She hopes her daughter will be scared enough to run away from it but not to scared to spend eternity on holy ground. She's wrong and the adventure that ensues because of her daughter is great.
