Good read if you like Kenyon. Be forewarned, two of the three short stories have been published in other anthologies. "Captivated by You" was in Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down Anthology, and "Bad to the Bone" was in Big Guns Out of Uniform Anthology. So if you are an avid reader of Kenyon like me, you have most likely read these two stories and there will only be the one new story (the first in the book by the way) for you to read. Still hot and steamy though :)
I read this book because I had heard good things about Sherrilyn Kenyon. The novellas weren't bad, but it takes a lot for me to keep around anthologies. It's a fun read but stretched my imagination a little too much with a secret government agency called BAD.

Great for a quick summer read. Lots of steamy scenes to keep your heart racing!
Also try her Dark Hunter and Dream Hunter series... lots of yummy.. eh hemm I mean defined...ahhh...well developed characht... ummm well you get the idea :0)Happy reading!
This book contains three short stories from Sherrilyn Kenyon's BAD universe. Each of these stories is good in its own right, but I would recommend reading the first full-length BAD novel first, otherwise you will be a little lost as to what the agency's purposes and origins are. I like Kenyon's work in general, but do not find this series as entertaining, nor as well-developed as her Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter series.
