The blurh:
Under the cover of night exists the dark and sensuous world of Midnight Cravings–a world conjured up in six seductive tales of paranormal passion. Follow some of the genre's best writers, including Michele Hauf, Karen Whiddon and Lori Devoti, on a mesmerizing journey where the extraordinary comes breathtakingly close with every turn of the page.
So, please, come on in. The first bite won't hurt, and it's likely that you will crave another...and another...and...
Now I must admit that I normally don’t like short stories because I always feel like there could be more to the story or that I am left hanging. With this whole book, I never felt that way. The stories are short, sexy and gawd to honest hot!
The first book:
Racing The Moon by Michele Hauf

Dean Maverick, werewolf, is racing against the full moon when his truck breaks down in the middle of nowhere. A sexy female mechanic named Sunday assesses the damage--and Dean. Sparks crackle between the two of them; they cannot hide their attraction to one another. It'll take a day for parts to arrive; Sunday offers the spare bedroom above her shop for him to stay the night. Dean doesn't have a day, or even a few hours. When the full moon is high in the sky, his inner wolf will emerge--unless he can appease it beforehand with sex.
Being a familiar isn't easy for Sunday--sex is a conduit for demons to enter the mortal realm. Most familiars can control this power, but Sunday can't. Every time she climaxes, a demon bridges to this realm, and they're not always friendly. But she can't deny the feral need to help slake Dean's lust. And keeping the wolf at bay will see her safe from an attack--wolves don't like cats.

Can a cat and wolf get beyond their prejudices--and overcome their own problems--to bring the wolf to a howling submission...
This is from Michele Hauf’s site.
My thoughts:
OMG, if you want to know what happens when werewolfs and familars meet under some hot circumstances then you must read this book. The story will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next. Dean is hot and Sunday is spicy! What more could you ask for, now throw a demon in the mix and you got one kickin story! The story does beg to ask… what would you do to satisfy an urge!!!
Be sure to check out her place (here) to see what she has coming up!!! And if you visit her place… you will see that you can go to eHarlequin to download a free book from her as well!!! So, please… chase the wolf there to see what else she has in store for us!

PS… this is her cover for this book….

    I have Midnight Cravings (sweet win at Anna's), at the top of my TBR list.

    I love Michele Hauf, I'm reading her novella in Faeries Gone Wild as we speak..type..communicate! It's so sweet, hot, and funny. The Highwayman is next on list though... details regarding this book to come.
