She thought her date was out of this world. Actually, he was not of this world . . . We've all been on bad dates, nightmare dates, dreadful experiences that turned out to be uniquely memorable in the very worst way. But at least our partners for these detestable evenings were more or less . . . human! Now Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Kelley Armstrong, and Lori Handeland -- four of the very best writers currently exploring the dangerous seduction of the supernatural -- offer up dating disasters (and unexpected delights) of a completely different sort: dark, wicked, paranormally sensual assignations with werewolves, demon lovers, and the romantically challenged undead. Sexy, witty, chilling, and altogether remarkable, here is proof positive that some love matches are made someplace other than heaven.… (mer)

This was a fun collection of four novellas about... yes, dates from Hell. I'm now on day two of being sick in bed so I'm not up to a detailed review at the moment, but I may come back later and append. For now, just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this book.

A good collection of authors I like to read. ( )

Read the first 2 stories in the book. First one is by Kim Harrison, Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil. It was pretty good. Liked the characterization but the rules of the world, with this being a short story were alittle hard to follow. Fortunately it all came together in the end. Second story is by Lynsay Sands, one of my personal favorites, called "The Claire Switch Project". I liked the storyline but it wasn't as put together and eloquent as her other books. I put it down after that. I prefer whole books, so that you have more time to get acquainted with the characters, the world, and plot. Will probably pick it up again, and finish it but it wasn't a big attention grabber for me. ( )

Dead Man Dating by Lori Handeland - 3
Chavez is a demon hunter and Kit likes to read books but isn't' very good at selling them. Chavez saves her from her date with a demon. Which he has to do repeatedly as he tries to determine what type of demon it is to save her. Not very believable but ok read.

Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil by Kim Harrison - 5
The story before Ivy was teamed up with Rachel, it gives insight into the complex nature and relationship between the living and undead vampire world. Also just how devious they all are.

The Claire Switch Project by Lynsay Sands - 4
Kyle and Claire are scientists who've known each other since they were kids. After a lab accident, they end up going on their first date. Strange, but interesting.

Kim Harrison - Undead in the Garden of Good and Evil
Interesting. Ivy Tamwood before The Hollows series. I liked her in this story, more than I like her in the books. This makes me wonder if her decision to stop taking blood was a good one for her, and makes me think yet again that she and Rachel are bad for each other. I had instant hatred for Art (GRR) and it was great to see Kisten again, if only briefly.

Lynsay Sands - The Claire Switch Project
I generally avoid the whole "scientific accident leads to people with superpowers and then superbabies" genre. With good reason. In this story Claire got zapped by a something destabilizer and instead of having chameleon skin she can shapeshift. Turns out her body shifts into clothes, too, which leads to the ever-wacky "Claire shifts back into herself and is naked" plotline. Also, the reason Claire and Kyle aren't dating is because 12 years earlier her father asked him not to ask her out so she could grow or something and now they're still there waiting on each other? I'm not saying I hated it, but I won't be reading it again.

Kelley Armstrong - Chaotic
Hope meets Karl and I like him more here than I do in any of the following books or stories. Weird, that. The story didn't add anything to Hope or to the series that I needed to know. I read Personal Demon just fine without knowing this backstory and found nothing to be missing.

Lori Handeland - Dead Man Dating
This story caused me to seek out Lori Handeland's books today. Well, hello, Chavez, you rogue demon hunter, you. Yes, he knows about Wesley, he gets the joke, he doesn't think it's funny. There's also Samantha, the psychic, who lost her son in the World Trade Center bombing and willingly gave up her sight so she could See, and then there's Satan who kind of likes Chavez, at least in the way he likes to taunt him. This worked for me in so many ways: hot, humorous, and a little bit scary. ( )
