Dogs, cats, sea creatures, feathered friends, dragons and unicorns, they're all amazing and easy to love. So many great stories and it's hard to choose my favourites, but I've picked just two for special mention.

The first one  is Wynter and the Stone Dragon. I loved this story. From the dramatic beginning to the satisfying conclusion it drew me right in. The romance which is only hinted at in the beginning of the story builds to a sizzling conclusion, but there are many pitfalls before the h.e.a. can happen.

The stone dragon himself is a unique and original take on dragons in general, and Wynter has a bond with him that is almost as important as the love interest. I won't put any spoilers here, but there are many twists and turns to the plot and enough action and suspense for a full length novel or novella.

An Entanglement of Griffins by Carol Van Netta - A young woman who can both empathise and talk telepathically to genetically engineered pet griffins, to put it simpl, and a pirate unused to actually living planetside, whose mission is to rescue her when her space flitter is shot down and the griffins she has been caring for at her sanctuary are kidnapped. This is just the start. There are many dangers ahead, friends and enemies and occasionally recalcitrant griffins, and some fascinating scientific innovations.  

Lark Sutrio and space pirate Pym Okaansson are far too busy working to save the griffins to admit to their mutual attraction, but it's there all the same, sitting quietly in the background. The story builds to a dramatic climax and an optimistic ending. I really enjoyed this original and satisfying SF romance.

These are just two of my favourite stories in this brilliant collection. The other stories in this collection are just as good. They are varied and unusual and whatever your taste in science fiction romance and alien animal preference, or choice of heat rating, there is sure to be something to delight you here. (And don't forget each purchase helps
