Captain of Nara’s Heart by Laurann Dohner - 4.5 Nymphs 

A pilot and her crew are sent to be auctioned as sex slaves after being arrested.  A member of Captain Vellar’s crew buys her for him, as he needs to have a female until one from his home planet can arrive. 

This was an interesting story about a woman falling in love with a man from another world and taking matters into her own hands to be happy. 

Dragon Heat by Mel Teshco - 4 Nymphs 

After she goes after Bensen, Grace is betrayed by the organization she is an operative for.  Unbeknownst to her, she is actually the target. 

A story of deceit and betrayal by friends, to finding love with an unlikely man, made for an intense story.
Dangerous Addiction by Desiree Holt – 5 Nymphs    
Cord saw Fallon and fell for her, but has to fight the fact she was abused by her former Dom.
A beautiful BDSM story where patience wins the heart of a brave woman.
Highland Tryst by Eliza Knight - 4.5 Nymphs
Kari trips over Fin after he is transported to the present by a witch on the battlefield where he almost lost his life.
This was a fun story with a lot of misunderstandings.
Tattoo Witch by Kathy Kulig - 3.5 Nymphs
Sam and Anita end up getting tattoos that come with good things and curses.
I was actually a little disappointed with this story. There were some places it seemed a little redundant and others confusing.
The Addiction by Jaid Black - 5 Nymphs
Shelli is fired after another disastrous performance, but has caught the eye of John Calder.
I enjoyed the humor in this story and had to laugh at a lot of Shelli’s antics.  A good love story, this is the sequel to The Possession.
Some of the stories in Something Wicked This Way Comes don’t really seem to belong in a book with this title.  Most seem to be straight forward love stories, with a few minutes of angst.  Only one seemed to really embody the title.  I’ll admit this did throw me a little because it ended up being a totally different mindset as I read.  Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy most of the stories and a few I would have liked to know more about the characters.  The chemistry between the couples was intense and you could see some of the emotions coming through.  There are a few stories I will read again in this book.
