My Review:
This was such a great book! I mean, there was mostly stories that had been published before, but now they're all together, which was really great! And there are some new ones, the main one being House of the Rising Son, which is the story of Styxx and Bethany's first romance and first life!

So House of the Rising Son really made me want to read parts of Styxx over. Which I did. And I found, that I think that time that a demon attacks Styxx, that it was Caleb, because Caleb was the one that led the 6 person group!

In Phantom Lover, at the beginning, I thought that the dragon might be the one for her. But then the story went on, and it was V'Aiden who was for. But then I just loved the twist, that V'Aiden was the dragon. Because yeah, it complicated things. But I enjoyed how it all ended, really great!

Love Bytes is going on that list that I've been meaning compile. Yeah! Now I'm finally going to make it, I won't lose out on books that I've read and then have forgotten! "Pete had been called a lot of things  over the years, but this was the first time anyone had referred to his brother as St. Nick," For good reason!

Favourite line from Santa Wears Spurs: "Woman, right now I have a loaded gun just waiting to...Did I just say that out loud?" Oh, that's just so cute!

This was a really fantastic collection, and now I'm really pumped for Dragonbane!
