This book was OK, but fans of these authors might be disappointed at the short length of each story. Nothing to really write home about.

Shifter anthology. I found the first story Lion Eyes By Jodi Lynn Copeland indifferent. The background on the shifters was muddy and the heroine's mom got over some really strong prejudices really quickly - and then there was the fact that the hero busts out of jail and kills the REAL bad guy who just happens to be a cop...without credible witnesses. Tiger Eye By Kit Tunstall was better, the setting was better done and there was a little more tension. Hidden Heart By Kate Steele is excellent...more Shifter anthology.

A real mixed bag!

My 4 stars go solely to the Kate Steele story. It might be a 4+. This was the first thing of hers I've read and it was gripping. The writing was better than the standard Ellora's Cave stuff. Both characters were likable, and even though the hero started out grouchy, we quickly understood why and he made amends. The dialogue between him and some of his fellow shifters was funny.

When I first read the blurbs, this was the one I liked the least. Just reading "werebear" made me laugh and not in a good way. But after reading the story I am now looking for more work by this author now.

As for the other two stories. My least favorite thing I've read by Copeland was her entry in this anthology. The characters and storyline were flat. I just didn't care what happened to either of them. The middle story, by Tunstall just missed the mark. Parts of it were interesting, and it had promise, but it went unfulfilled.

This book is worth reading for Kate's story.
