Immortal Desires Anthology – Review by Maura Harper

Immortal DesiresImmortal Desires by Melanie James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

IMMORTAL DESIRES is a collection of paranormal romances written by a variety of authors. There are stories about vampires and shifters and dragons (seriously, what’s not to love about dragons!!!) and more. The majority of the stories are full length novels and they are part of a series. Some are the first in the series and others are the third; each was a satisfactory read and I’ve added the series’ to my TBR list. I was able to take my time with this set and I found that anytime I was in between books, i would grab another story from this collection.

I have a few that stood out above the rest (OMG Zane!!!) and all in all each was a great read. I honestly don’t think I would be able to rank them in the order that I preferred them, so I’m just going to list the stories/authors in the way they are listed in the front of the book:

Conjuring Darkness (Darkness Series Book #1) By: Melanie James
Artemis’s Hunt (Sons of War Novella) By: Lia Davis
The Dragon and the Vampire (Supernatural Enforcement Bureau Series Book #1) By: A.K Michaels
His Dream Mate By: Madison Sevier
Alpha Undercover (Big Bad Wolf Security) By: Heather Hildenbrand (Holly Eastman)
Sea Dragon’s Hunger (A Fada Shapeshifter Story: Book #4.5) By: Rebecca Rivard
Luci By: Bella Roccaforte
The Fifth Moon’s Wolf (The Fifth Moon’s Tales Series Book #1) BY: Monica LaPorta
Flirty Dancing (The Green Room Chronicles Book #3) By: Jennifer Theriot (J.D Frettier)
Wet Kisses: Pisces (The Sectorium Series Book #5) By: Susan Griscom
Spell Hell: An Undercover Witch (Witches Brew Series Book #1) By: N.L Hoffmann
Zane (Flames of Vampire Passion Series Book #1) By: Elaine Barris
For Haven’s Sake By: Nicole Garcia
Vengeance Marked (The Alyx Rayer Chronicles Book #1) By: S.J Pierce
Demons By: C.J Hartnett
On The Run (A Sinister Elixir Novella) By: Casey Hagen
Alpha at Home (Brothers of the Heart Series Book #1) By: D.J Bryce
The Dark Delta (Dark Brothers Trilogy Book #3) By: Cora A. Murray
Karma’s Vengeance By: Christina Escue

I am a huge fan of these “new to me” authors and look forward to reading more.

Immortal Desires Anthology – Review by Jana Teppih

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Immortal Desires is a collection of Paranormal Romances written by various authors! There is something for EVERYONE! I love reading anthologies as they give you a glimpse into the universe that the writer has created and when you love in love with it then you have the rest of the books in the series to dive into!
I want to point out a few of my favourites – I absolutely love shifter stories so Alpha at Home by D.J. Bryce that is the opening to her Brothers of the Heart series and Alpha Undercover by Heather Hildebrand were the ones that I went after and if you are like me, you will get a total kick out of them and you will be reaching for the other stories in the series. And then I discovered For Heaven’s Sake by Nicole Garcia that took a bit of a different approach to werewolf shifters mixing with humans!
Spell Hell by N.L. Hoffmann was another one that anyone who loves a good story that involves witches, vampires and killings that need to be figured out! It is an enjoyable short read so you don’t have to wait too long to find out who when and why!
Vengeance Marked by S.J. Pierce was a short story that grabbed me from the first page, it gave me chills and I could not wait to get into finding out were the writer was going to take us and I tell you, that was one heck of a journey and it was not meant for the ones faint at heart!
Flirty Dancing by Jennifer Theriot writing as J.D. Frettier was another one that I still remember and knowing that it is part of a series means that there are couple of other books to pick up! I know she says you can read Flirty Dancing as a standalone but I have noticed over years that one really should start from the beginning as you will have the backstory then! It is amazing how such a short story runs a gamut of emotions ranging from sadness to love …

Immortal Desires Anthology by Various Authors

5-stars

Immortal Desires Anthology is a compilation of stories featuring paranormal magical creatures. Romance is a common theme. There are several excellently written stories in this collection. I had a hard time picking a favorite but I definitely think that the Dragon And The Vampire was it. I could not stop reading these and I can definitely see myself rereading many of these. They all seemed to flow easily and kept my attention. Some were steamy while others were hilarious. I highly recommend this anthology!

This collection was completely awesome…Im not normally a major paranormal fan but this collection had some authors that I have read before and absolutely loved. By taking a chance on this I now have added to this list and have new authors that I must read more from. I must also mention that the fact that the proceeds from this box set benefit The American Cancer Society was the first reason I grabbed it and Im thankful I did because I sincerely enjoyed it.

Some of the stories I truly wish had been longer but many of them are part of a series so I can solve that by grabbing those. One of many of my favorites of the whole collection is Flirty Dancing by Jennifer Theriot…I’ve read the few before that story and if your curious at all read them, although I can see Flirty being read as a standalone..you would get much more enjoyment if you had all the back stories from the other characters in this story. It’s a fun read yet also has those times that make you sad and find yourself feeling the feelings that Kitty was feeling and I loved that the author could do this.

Another of my favorites was On The Run by Casey Hagen…This one grabbed me in the first chapter and I was laughing out loud through most of it…I have already bookmarked this author’s other books as her writing style was amazing.

I wish I could write full reviews of all of the stories but that would take me way too long so I will just stop here and say you must pick this collection, for many reasons, but one of the main is these are all 5 star authors and even though I’m not normally a paranormal fan…these stories had me totally wrapped.

Loved it!

The Immortal Desires Anthology was a wonderful collection of stories and I thoroughly enjoyed every one that I read. I loved that there were authors in the anthology that I had read previously and also some new to me authors! I love finding new authors to read. Each story brought something different to the collection and they were all excellently written. I was really excited to see Jennifer Theriot (JD Frettier) included in this set as I love her writing and Flirty Dancing was definitely one of my favourites from this collection. Her writing never fails to entertain me and I liked that it was linked to other books that I have read by her.
If you are a fan of paranormal stories then there is definitely something for you in this anthology – I thought that it was a wonderful collection of stories that I highly recommend!

Immortal Desires: An Anthology of Paranormal Romance Novels

Five Stars

I love all things Paranormal. All things forbidden too. Nothing like living for a little trouble. This box set is a mix of different things immortal not just vampires and werewolves. We have the immortal life of purgatory. Where once you pass you get to sit in this place were all wants become reality. Author Jennifer Theriot as written a funny ado to death. Where you get to meet some interesting characters and have a laugh at what you may experience in the afterlife. The other books were very intriguing as well. I really liked the way the authors brought their unique styles together.

Immortal Desires Anthology – Review By Emily Walsh

By: Various Authors
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Immortal Desires by Various Authors was a super fun read that is stuff to the brim with a little bit of everything. Funny, hot, steamy, action and mythology, you can’t go wrong with this hot anthology.

Wow, with so many quick reads, and talented authors, it wasn’t that hard to get hooked, and fast. I had so much fun picking and choosing what story to read next. Now some are longer than others, but they don’t follow any particular order, so you can just go on and choose what story you want to read and when.

There are a few stories that caught my eye, Artemis’s Hunt by Lia Davies, His Dream Mate by Madison Sevier, and Flirty Dancing by Jennifer Theriot. All were by on the shorter side, but all packed quite a punch. I’m not going to get into too much detail, because I don’t want to spoil anything. But both Artemis’s Hunt and His Dream Mate were on the hotter, steamier side. Well, Artemis’s Hunt was a little more tame, as it followed a bit of a journey, and reconnecting type plot line. His Dream Mate was, well… hot.. Flirty Dancing, was fun, light heart and quirky. It plays on the, what happens after death, and really hits home. It’s more on they playful side of the steaminess, and gave a nice nod to Dirty Dancing at the end.

Overall this anthology was worth it, and it gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval. And as I said, with all those wonderful stories, you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy.

Happy Reading

Immortal Desires is a spellbinding anthology from some brilliant authors. There are 19 stories that make up this wonderful collection, from nineteen incredibly talented authors. This is a charity anthology, so not only will you be getting some fantastic reading- but will be supporting charity in the process!
All the stories have a paranormal/supernatural theme- but each one is unique and original- and the variety is mind-boggling. From vampires to dragons, shifters to witches, and even ghosts. There is plenty of sizzle, laughs, emotion, sexy characters, intriguing stories…. and so much more.
I loved that there were stories in here from authors I know and love- such as Jennifer Theriot, Melanie James, Lia Davis, A.K Michaels, Nicole Garcia, Cora A. Murray, and Christina Escue… But there are a heap of stories by ‘new-to-me authors whose work I got to explore and enjoy- and now I have even more authors to add to my TBR. WIN-WIN!
If you are like me and love a walk on the paranormal side- then you will want to read this book! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An anthology is a great way to experience new authors and if you are looking for a sneak peek at some really good paranormal romance then Immortal Desires is the way to go. Off the top of my head two stories stand out, Flirty Dancing and Artemis’s Hunt. Flirty Dancing tells the story of “Kitty” and her adventures in the Green Room. Artemis’s Hunt is steeped in Greek mythology and shows what happens when a goddess is wronged and the lengths, she must go to in order to fix her life.
The stories featured in this anthology are a pleasant surprise and bring with them hours of entertainment. If you like ghosts, vampires, mythology, etc. there is something for everyone. So, grab a drink and snacks, and settle in for some good reading.

This is an anthology that includes the paranormal and romance. I read stories that have adventure, danger, and action. There is plenty of steam that will make the temperature in the room rise. I love reading anthologies as I am introduced to different writing styles and new authors. The stories I read include magic and all sorts of paranormal creatures. There are also stories that are thrilling and had me turning pages to find out what happens next. I enjoyed reading about the characters and there were scenes that will make you swoon. One of the stories that I really enjoyed is Flirty Dancing. I found my emotions going up and down when reading. It had touching moments and also times when I was smiling and laughing. The story has characters that are likable and a storyline that is entertaining. This is an anthology that you don’t want to miss out on.
