I did enjoy the first two stories, but the second and third stories i did not enjoy. The Yearning and Bitten were the normal type of Vampire love stories that made sense. The Stranger in the Night story was about a cursed vampire that when he found love was no longer a vampire. It made no sense. The fourth story, The Awakening was really awful because after the old aunt died, the neice fell in love with her lover! It was more of the typical vampire story with the townspeople trying to save the neice and trying to kill the vampire with wooden stakes. I did not enjoy the last two stories.
"The Yearning" by Hannah Howell
Hannah Howell is one of my favorite authors, I have read all of her books prior to this one. This story however lacked her usual nail bitting over the top story line. I enjoyed the book however is was not up to her usual standard.
"Bitten" by Lynsay Sands
I am begging to wonder if it is just short stories that are the draw back. Lynsay Sands is also one of my favorite authors and I have read all of her other books. But this book was a disappointment to me.
"Stranger in the Night" by Sara Blayne
I have never read anything by Sara Blayne before and don't know if I will ever again. I am a history major and I felt like I was reading one of my textbooks. I have to read all the books in a series and every chapter in a book no matter how much I wish other wise (part of my OCD I am sure). I nornally read a novel everyday it has taken me almost two days just to read these three stories.
"The Awakening" by Kate Huntington
This is another author that I have never read before. I will however give Kate Huntington another try. I love historial romance the best in my reading, the earlier the better. This story was I felt like the best of all four stories.
