Week 42 Review: Hotter Than Hell

From Goodreads:
Beyond the boundaries of the everyday is an unseen realm where anything you imagine is possible. Your demon lover is waiting for you in the shadows, ready to fulfill your secret wishes and most dangerous fantasies. Here passion has a face and form both titillating and terrifying—and love has teeth and claws. Get ready to give in to your craving for something exquisitely dark . . . and different.

Hotter Than Hell gathers together a baker's dozen of today's boldest and best authors of supernatural fiction and paranormal romance in a breathtaking anthology that blends black magic with red-hot desire. From the tantalizing tale of a conflicted psychic vampire driven by a powerful, savage love to the strange saga of a Greek warrior woman battling to save the world, these are stories outside the limits, as hypnotic as the full moon . . . and hotter than the sun.

My Review:
What an awesome collection of stories! There were so many, that I can't do a paragraph for each one, but maybe I'll try to group them together! I read this anthology for the Dirty Magic novella by Kim Harrison, since I'm rereading the series for The Witch With No Name, but reading all of them, well, they were fantastic!

There were so many different creatures, in order of their appearances, sirens, a minotaur, incubus demons, Greek Goddess and nymphs, a man cursed to turn into a horse, werewolves and shifters, a man cursed to have dragon scales by gypsies, unique creatures like sexwitches, and a new name for vampires, time travellers, vampires, werewolves, and banshees! And yeah, they were all awesome!

Of all the stories, the ones that I want more of, are Brother's Keeper, and Dirty Magic! And yeah, they're the ones that I can get more, Brother's Keeper, which was was put into a full book with novellas called Selene! And of course, Dirty Magic is part of The Hollows series!

I just loved the theme of the anthology, supernatural fiction and paranormal romance, because just like Kim Harrison, said in the opening, that those genres have such variety and are open to just about anything, and yeah, that's just great!

Yeah, this was a fantastic anthology, one that I really enjoyed!
