Author Essay

Dear Reader,

What do you get when you mix bestselling authors Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, Lisa Shearin, and Milla Vane (who also writes as Meljean Brook)? Sexy heroines that kick some serious butt. Night Shift is a terrific anthology featuring stories from these beloved authors in the urban fantasy and paranormal romance genre — perfect for readers who can’t wait for the next full-length novel from these prolific and acclaimed authors. From shapeshifting tigresses, to leprechaun bachelor parties, this compilation has a little something for everyone.

Nalini’s “Secrets at Midnight” delivers a smoldering story as the scent of Bastien Smith’s lover ignites a possessiveness in him that’s both feral and ecstatic – and he’ll do anything to keep her. In Ilona’s novella, “Magic Steals,” shapeshifting tigress Dali and jaguar shifter Jim must uncover the truth behind mysterious disappearances happening around them.

Meanwhile, Lisa Shearin explores Makenna’s first day on the job at Supernatural Protection and Investigations in “Lucky Charms,” when a leprechaun bachelor party goes horribly wrong. And finally, Milla Vane brings readers the story of a warrior princess eager to earn a place among her people in “The Beast of Blackmoor,” by taming The Beat – but finds that this warrior is looking to do a little taming of his own.

Whether you’re a fan of outgoing heroines or more modest leading ladies that come into their own, I promise you won’t be able to put this exciting read down! Night Shift is sexy, engrossing, and an overall entertaining read to warm you up on a cold winter night. As USA Today said, “you get paranormal, barbarians, magic, snark, and shifters.” What’s not to love?

Happy Reading,
