Man of Her Dreams by Gerald Costlow

Anise and Charlene are living the busy lives of young Goth women trying to juggle college and jobs and – in their case – training as apprentice Sherritt witches under the tutelage of Anise's mother, Annabel.

Then over Thanksgiving break, the girls encounter a young man named Donnie who claims to be running from a demon – a demon sent by the Devil himself. They might have dismissed the man as deluded, but Anise recognizes him from her dreams. He is the perfect lover she's been dreaming of night after night.

Now the witches are involved in a deadly game of hide-and-seek, discovering they have only days to figure out how to help Donnie. Are even the famous Sherritt witches up to the challenge? Third in the Modern Day Sherritt series.

Under the Harvest Moon by Markee Anderson

Victoria Sommerfield is the maid of honor at her neighbor's wedding, the day after the Harvest Festival. She's also very fond of Kirby, her best friend from high school, who's also in the bridal party. Victoria's forced to make a few decisions thanks to a crime in town. At least Kirby can save the day, for now. But can she take the next step with him?

Day of the Dead ~ (Dia de los Muertos) by Cecilia Corona

The Day of the Dead takes on a new meaning, when the dead don't stay dead. Dr. Valentina Bellmonte, a cancer survivor, is the new coroner at Hope Memorial. Her faith is put to the test when a body arrives at the morgue drained of blood and the man responsible for the crime is sporting fangs. Could vampires be real?

Her good friend, Dr. Xander Carlisle seems to know the truth, but he's unwilling to confide in her. He has a secret of his own and it's not just how he feels about her, but something else entirely, something he's forbidden to reveal.

Apple of His Eye by Nan O'Berry

Callie Dalton's truck runs out of gas on the road to her family's fruit stand. When a forestry agent Marshall Albright comes to her rescue, little does she know that he is the grandson of her grandfather's worst enemy, Brice Huntington. It seems the Dalton's and Huntington's have been waging a feud for the past twenty-nine years, ever since Laura Huntington left Stephen Dalton at the altar.

Falling in love was the easy part; the hard part is going to be keeping their grandparents from confronting one another. Can their love bring these two warring factions together?

Alive by Vincent Nutt

A mutated form of Cholera infects the world, creating zeeks, zombielike creatures in every respect. The group I'm with has traveled far. We've all lost those we've held dear along the way, but when life is unpredictable, anything can happen... This Thanksgiving brings new friends into our lives, and a fresh look at what tomorrow may bring.

Young Witchcraft by Stephanie Burkhart

Rachel's secret would have Cotton Mather rolling over in his grave. She's been raised from an early age to use magic for good, despite her temptation to cast a spell against Phil the bully who can't stop teasing her.

Joe thinks Rachel is cool, especially when she weaves her healing magic spells on him, but he's got his own problems. It's not easy keeping Rachel safe from Phil's constant threats.

When Phil poisons Rachel, can love and a little young witchcraft bring Rachel and Joe together or has years of Phil's bullying ruined their relationship for good?
This book definitely has something for everyone!

True to the synopsis, this anthology has your type of story! I was treated to paranormal and contemporary stories of various types. They were all of a length that kept the book as a whole moving; that is to say, I read a quick paranormal romance, then switched to a little contemporary romance next. It was refreshing!

The wonderful thing about anthologies is getting the read the different styles of the contributing authors. This one was no different. Gerald Costlow's paranormal romance was more light and upbeat whereas Vincent Nutt's story was a but more intense.

If you like different romance genres and love "meeting" new authors, then I really think you will like the 2014 Autumn Collection!

From Apple of His Eye
The window powered up and she watched as the truck moved back, the pulled in front, facing her. She cast a forlorn glance at the hissing steam still radiating from the grill and wondered how much was this going to cost. Hearing the door open and the driver's footsteps move closer, she turned to face her rescuer offering him a gracious smile.

"Thanks for stopping."

"Sure." He placed his hands on his hips and studied the old truck. "Engine over heating?"

"Yes." Callie's heart gave a skip of a beat. Tall, summed him up in one word, tall and blonde. The loose waist-length, green jacket made the shoulders beneath the tan button up appear a mile wide. She pushed her hair away from her face where the wind had blown it and glanced back toward him. It was a shame a pair of aviator glasses covered his eyes for she was dying to see what color they were.

"Did you try to open the hood?" he asked.

"Uh-huh." Jiminy, my answer sounds lame. Quickly shifting her glance to the car, she nodded. "It's still too hot."

"Let me see what I can do."
