The Beast (Collection) is comprised of five stories previously released as the Beast series: Taking Back Control, Eat Your Heart Out, Old Ways, New Days, Soul Tripping, and Rock the Line, as well as a bonus short story, The Beast Revisited. Each story introduces a new action packed dilemma, in addition to new secondary characters, which Nathan and Guillermo have direct contact with. The well written plots are set in Kansas City, Missouri. The characters are believable. Nathan was turned into a vampire against his will and has been trying to live a normal human life for three years. When Nathan sought help from Guillermo, the last thing Nathan ever expects is to fall in love with a man.

Guillermo is Kansas City’s oldest vampire and owner of a nightclub. He has desired Nathan since Nathan was turned by one of Guillermo’s submissives. Together Nathan and Guillermo must do battle with a jealous ex-lover, a 700-year-old Viking blood servant, a mother who interferes, an obsessive faction of ancient vampires along with a magical baby. In every episode, Nathan and Guillermo engage in electrifying sex, sometimes as a couple, other times in ménages. Because vampires are bisexual in these stories, male/male as well as male/female sexual activities are featured. Reneé George has created an impressive collection that I enjoyed greatly.
