Belong to the Night is an anthology featuring paranormal favorites. Whether it be wolf and cat shifters, witches or vampires the pages are filled with sexy heros and hard nosed tough females.

Shelly Laurenston is back in Smithville when the new witches are now settled offering protection to the towns shifter community. Cynthia Eden's in the dark brings two lovers back together where secrets are revealed and a serial murderer in the shape of a rogue shifter must be found. Sherrill Quinn tells a story of a witch looking for her brother and an amulet. All of the stories are pretty much full length novels offering a pretty good mix of interesting genres.

Shelly's featured story will keep readers interested, but it doesn't have her usual sense of humor and while Jamie is a strong but way too much was going on in her life. Even so still a great continuation to the series.

Cynthia's story is a fairly well put together offering the shifter and the vampire theme. Still I would have given the vampire a little harder time, especially since cat shifters hate vampires.

The final story offered by Sherill was just okay. I'm not much for witch stories, but this one seemed a little predictable and not up to the authors usual par.

But Tully's grappling with his own animal instincts as a powerful shifter-wolf, trying to protect all his territory-including a certain sassy witch-from vicious rivals.

By Cynthia Eden
FBI agent and leopard shifter Sadie James' undead ex, Liam, still arouses her deepest desires, distracting her from tracking the brutal rogue shifter who is terrorizing Miami. By teaming up with Liam, Sadie has a better chance of solving the case, but as passion consumes them, she stands to lose more than just her heart.

By Sherrill Quinn
