USA Today Review for Something Wicked This Way Comes

It's been so great to see some brilliant reviews for this anthology, and I'm stoked to be part of it with some even more brilliant authors =)

USA Today posted a very cool review for the book. Here is what reviewer, Lea Franczak said about Dragon Heat:


Dragon Heat by Mel Teshco is a paranormal romance about Grace Macintosh who is a top agent with the Paranormal Detection Agency. Grace is sent on a mission to apprehend Benson Marres, a billionaire recluse, suspected of being a rare dragon shifter (a Kezmak). Benson is a known womanizer, and Grace poses as a high-class prostitute to gain access to his penthouse.
I quite liked Teshco's characterization of Grace and Benson. The former is haunted by a troubled past, and the later is the last of his kind, struggling to survive. As it turns out, Benson knows what Grace is up to, having orchestrated her involvement in the mission. These two are inexorably drawn together by an instinctual need to mate. You see, unknown to Grace, she is a rare Kezmak breeder, and Benson needs her if there is any hope for the survival of his species.
Teshco weaves an intriguing subplot of manipulation and betrayal into this short story, which I felt was extremely well-crafted. Grace and Benson must flee for their lives from a skilled, highly trained enemy who is bent on their capture for nefarious purposes. Readers can expect plenty of action sequences, a very seductive dragon shifter and hot love scenes.

So happy with the wonderful cover from Totally Bound for my story, Blood Chance. Some readers might remember this story as Her Dark Lord...
