My favorite in this book was the Rachel Caine story! It was my first time reading Caine but I will definately be checking out more by her.

The Jim Butcher, Lori Handeland, Charlaine Harris, and P.N. Elrod stories were also great. It was nice to read a little something by these authors while I wait for their next books to come out.

I tried, but just could not get into the Esther M. Friesner and Susan Krinard stories. I hate Sherrilyn Kenyon, so I didn't even bother trying to read her short story.

I usually hate short stories. The length doesn't usually give enough time to develop the characters enough. I think that I was able to enjoy these, though, because I have already read so much by many of these authors that I knew the basic makeup of the characters or their "world".

I bought this book for one author, but found that all 9 stories were worth my time. Some were better than others, but they were all enjoyable.

I liked four of the nine stories contained in the book. The theme of paranormal wedding stories is really fun, and the authors in the anthology are all well-known and have written multiple best-selling novels. The key here is realizing that a short story is a different form of writing, that a masterful storyteller in novel format may fall flat when writing in a tight 40 pages or less. The best stories were fun and hooked me into the story and characters right away: Rachel Caine's "Dead Man's Chest"; Charlaine Harris' "Tacky"; Susan Krinard's "...Or Forever Hold Your Peace" (a Kit and Olivia story, if you've read other anthologies with Susan Krinard); P.N. Elrod's "All Shook Up."

I love books with more than one author in them. Make me want to find other stories by these authors.

Collection of short stories that I found a bit uneven. However, the stories written by a couple of my favorite "Supernatural" authors--Jim Butcher and Charlaine Harris--are defintely worth a read.

Pretty good collection of shorts. There were a couple that I didn't care for but I don't read those authors either.

I bought this book to read "Something Borrowed" by Jim Butcher. I enjoyed the story but think that it may be confusing to anyone who doesn't read the Dresden Files series. The other story I really liked was "Charmed by the Moon" by Lori Handeland. This is the first time I've read this author. I enjoyed her writing style and didn't have any problem following the story, even thought it is from one of her on-going series.

Other enjoyable entries were by P.N. Elrod and Rachel Caine. I didn't care for the other stories in the anthology. So, I liked 4 out of 9. My overall rating: 3 Stars.
