"What's Yours is Mine" by Jess Haines

This Is A Town Full Of Secrets. And I Intend To Uncover All Of Them. . .
"Werewolves in Chic Clothing" by Tami Dane
Ever since Christine Price moved in with her fiancé, Jonathan, and his twelve year-old son, she's worked hard to fit in with a cadre of local women whose lives seem picture-perfect. Except no one in Jon's upscale neighborhood is quite who they appear to be. Least of all Jon. . .
This anthology is a fun read. Each of the stories take you into a different area of people's lives. I think it's even better then television.
Where Darkness Lives:
Sophia thought that moving closer to her daughter would make things better. She's got her own business to run, a nice home in a gated community and all she wants is to be on her own and take life one day at a time. Why someone would want to kidnap her is beyond her understanding. Now she's stuck with a bodyguard with a body to die for and an attitude she could certainly do without. How this little play runs its course is just something you'll have to read on your own. LOL
I thoroughly enjoyed this section of the book and will certainly keep an eye out of more of Alexandra Ivy's works.
Murder on Mysteria Lane:
Heather McPhee is both honored and feared in her pack. Her gift is used for their benefit and her own. When a werewolf trophy wife is found dead she is sent in by Finnegan the Alpha of her pack she is not a happy camper. She is paired up with a Vampire Detective and expected to go undercover to find the killer and she's got only three nights to do it or her pack goes to war.
I love Heather's character, she an uber tomboy on steroids. She's also got a very dry sense of humor that just seems to click with me. I hope she will be making more appearances in the future.
Whats Yours is Mine:
There's a new hottie in the neighborhood and unfortunately she's single. Chain up her husbands ladies. Cassandra Sachs thinks that "Tiffany" will fit right in with her group. A group of Werewolves. Little do they know that Tiffany has plans of her own for this group of women and their families. Too bad that in their zeal to bring in someone new it could all come back to bite them in the rear.
This little story is about the ladies of a werewolf pack who think they can find new talent better then the boys can. I thought it was humorous and fun to read.
Werewolves in Chic Clothing:
Christine Price has her life packed into her old junker and a rusty U-Haul. She's leaving the city to move in with her Fiancé and his twelve year old son. She's excited and extremely nervous. Is she doing the right thing? Will this all work out for a "Happily Ever After"? Arriving at her new home she sees Jonathon standing in the driveway wearing an extremely happy face. He opens the driver's door before she even puts the car in PARK and is sweeps her into his arms. This might sound like your everyday fairy tale where Mr. Wonderful does everything in his power to make his lady happy and welcome. But Jonathon's got secrets. The whole neighborhood has secrets as she finds out when she meets the neighborhood ladies.
I was waiting for Christine to pack herself into her car and head back to the city by chapter 3. The world she is entering is like the Twilight Zone compared to her past life. This story is for anyone who enjoys intrigue and romance all balled up in a comedic paranormal romance.
