Four wonderful, unique and intense stories.

I have not read two of the four authors that were represented in On the Hunt. But I am now fans of all of them. From Vampires to spirits, to healers and soldiers on a mission to save the world. These four stories were hot, scary, intense and sweet. A little of everything that makes up a great book.


On The Hunt by Alexandra Ivy

This was a short sweet story of a Healer named Bailey who ran away from her love to find herself. Mika was a guardian sentinel sent to find a missing sentinel. I felt that I did not miss anything with Mika and Bailey. I felt that I have known them through many books. I was instantly rooting for this couple the moment Mika showed up.


Scorpius Rising by Rebecca Zanetti

Rebecca has done it again. This story went from sweet to scary intense in a moment’s notice. Deacan a soldier trying to stop a deadly virus from going global enlists the help of his ex-wife Nora who is a scientist. The villain in this story really gave me chills.


Phantom Embrace by Dianne Duvall

This was a little weird for me but that is what made me like it. Yuri and Cat are ghosts.  Ghosts can get their HEA too. I did not know any of the characters so I felt a little lost. But from what I could get of it I liked.


Stake Out by Hannah Jayne

This was just ok for me. It was cute. Nina was fun to read. I felt like I was reading a episode of Buffy the vampire slayer. Does that make sense? But it was fun to read.

From what I gather after finishing the book is that three of the four stories are not new stories. This is the only problem I had with it. I think these anthologies should just be new storylines that way the reader is not missing out on anything. But aside from that I did get introduced to some authors that are new to this reader and I will be searching them out.

I am a stay at home mom who rather be reading than doing house work. I am an old fashioned kind of reader. I love my romance books to be romantic with a side of angst thrown in. I also love to read murder mystery suspense books. The more suspenseful the better. I just love to read. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since May 2014.
