Ok so this book is three short stories. I am a big fan of Lynsay Sands and her Argeneau books, so I really enjoyed that one a lot. And then I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the other two authors as well. Especially the third story by Jamie Rush. The story is about a young woman who is a freelance writer for a magazine that is closing up shop so she is seeking out a new job and has an interview with the two founders of an adventure sports magazine that is only a few years old.
The story star Ok so this book is three short stories. The story starts out with Kristy, the young writer, walking into a coffee shop early to get her coffee and her bearings before the two big wigs show up to interview her. You find out with her thoughts that she is a unique woman who can hear other peoples thoughts since she was 15 years old. How she deals with it, is not working in an office environment hence the freelance jobs , always having her iPod and ear buds with her when in public.
Right before one of the magazine guys approaches her she hears some mans stray thought that she would make the perfect next Kiss and Kill Cupid victim. Five years earlier on Valentines night a woman was strangled to death and then a lip stick kiss mark on her body along with lip stick writing on her abdomen saying, "Kiss and Kill, Cupid. She ends up wondering who's thoughts she had just overheard and quickly realizes that one of the magazine guys, Adran, the super hot one is silent. She can't hear a thing from him! But unfortunately she is a little creeped out by his partner.
Kristy then goes to the police and talks to the homicide detective on the Cupid case and tells him that she can hear thoughts and that she heard the Cupid killer planning her murder. The guy laughs at her. Then a journalist approaches her and asks her to tell him what she knows about the Cupid killer cause he is bound an determined to be the one to help catch him.
She blows him off. One day she heads to the office to turn in some sample articles to be the final determination as to whether she scores the job or not and she hears Owen, creepy partner thinking that he would love to tie her up naked to his bed posts and torture her. Then he acted all nervous and quickly told her he had a meeting and had to go. Kristy then gets into contact the journalist and refuses to tell him everything and asks him to look into Owen and says she suspects him to be the Cupid killer.
Kristy ends up going to lunch with Adrian and he kept flirting with her and before she knew it they were having a passionate kiss on the street. Then all of a sudden she gets a flash of an image of herself naked and dead with the Cupid's message written on her body.

She assumes that she can't hear his thoughts but is reading them in pictures and freaks on him and accuses him of being the killer and then he freaks and shocked her by saying that since he was 15 he would get visions of the future and that he had a vision of her dead by the Cupids hand.

The next night Adrian comes over and she cooks dinner for her and they end up in bed together. Then afterward she asks him to stay the night and they go out to get some wine from the kitchen and the phone rings and she decides to let it go. The machine picks up and you hear the journalist leaving a message for Kristy telling her he finished digging up dirt on Owen and it turns out he is a murderer!! Adrian gets pissed and makes it clear that it is over between them, but before leaving he tells her that Owen was 7 when he shot and killed his step father in the middle of him trying to cut his mother's finger off.
He tells her that there is no way that the journalist isn't going to run with the story and that it would not just emotionally ruin his best friend and partner but it would most likely ruin the magazine as well. Two days later it is Valentine's day. Adrian still kept his "date" and plan to hang out to try to catch the killer, but things were strained between them. Then while walking around the city They see on tv screens in windows that breaking news that the Cupid killer stuck again earlier that morning!

Adrian listens to the message while sitting at a bar with Owen while he steadily got drunk. He relayed the message to Owen and he says he is going home to be alone. Adrian has a bad feeling.
Kristy gets a knock on the door and answers expecting to see Adrian and sees Owen standing at her door. He quickly pushes his way in and starts asking her why? In his thoughts he thinks to himself that he could kill her and just squeeze that pretty little neck of hers. She freezes and decides not to close the door and stays by it. He goes off on her and she asked him if Adrian told him what she could do.
He rolled his eyes and said that they were BOTH crazy and full of it. So she proved her ability and repeated what he had thought when he first walked in. He freaked and then started saying he couldnt believe she thought he was the killer and then he fell on the floor in front of her and began to sob. Feeling horrible she gets on the floor with him and consoles him and tells him that he needs to face what happened all those years ago and that he had the love and support of his best friend and that he needs to turn to him and not away from him during his time of need.
Then all of a sudden Adrian was in the doorway saying that she was right. They all make up and Owen goes home. Adrian stays behind to talk more with Kristy and while they were kissing he got a vision of her dead by the Cupids hand again.
He hurries to go down to the car to get his hammer and rope to prepare for the killer and hide in her closet as planned. When she opens the door to him it turns out not to be him but to be the journalist!! Thats right folks the cupid killer is the journalist! He knew she could read minds and found that fascinating. He had beat the crap out of Adrian and tied him up and dragged him into a closet in the lobby of the apartment building. She fights him and takes the chocolate and throws it on his face. Then opened the oven door so that while he was walking towards her blinded by the chocolate he tripped and fell on the hot oven door.
LOTS of screaming and she finally manages to get to the door and unlock and open it just in time to see Adrian all bloody and grabbing her, then all the neighbors start opening the doors and the police show up.

Bitten by Cupid
Will they accept each other, and let nothing nor anyone stand in the way of the greatest love and passion, that will bring them a lifetime together? Apr 03, Heila rated it liked it Shelves: A cute short story worth reading as part of the series. It took longer to figure out what was going on with the paranormal than it did to get to the end of the stories. Which is a shame — they have great potential, if only the reader was allowed to glimpse a bit more.
This multi-book that starts with Lyndsay Sands is a wonderful read! I absolutely loved reading Bitten by Cupid, but the other two stories in this book made it a 3 for 1 special!!! The last story keeps you in complete suspense until the end of the story and it gives you 3 suspects but you won't know until it actually happens who the bad guy is!!! I'm telling you that you have to get this particular book, because you're gonna miss out if you don't! Tiny and Mirabeau's story was simply too short to feel like the relationship made sense.
I'm not familiar with the other authors, but they weren't that great. The last story purely sucked - the romance made zero sense, somehow both characters wear the same brand of perfume and have odd abilities. For someone who can read minds, she isn't very good at it - why can she only hear one or two sentences that scare her, and nothing else? That's so illogical, and shows the mind re Ok, not great. That's so illogical, and shows the mind reading is only a plot device to ramp up the suspense.
Oct 10, Rhonda Morton rated it it was amazing. Was a fast read on the Lynsay Sands part of this Triology. Sad that it was just a short story. Would have like to had more of the Tiny McGraw and Mirabeau story. Also would have like more of the wedding that took place in the short story. Feb 20, Maureen rated it did not like it. I read this book because I love the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. Unfortunately, the other two stories in the book were a waste of time. Apr 14, Julie Stepp rated it really liked it. As of now I think I read every book she has. They are inmortals Not vampires but they do have to consume blood and they do have fangs.
Wanted to hear more of your story. This is an anthology featuring the following stories: Marguerite is at it again - she has suggested that Tiny and Mirabeau be paired up to protect teenager Stephanie McGill, while her sister Dani is on a romantic vacation with her lifemate Decker. Mirabeau has a lot of issues due to her uncle killing her family when she was seventeen.
She fears letting people get close to her because she doesn't want the pain that goes with losing them. Stephanie is dealing with just getting turned and the thought of not getting to see her family again other than Dani. Suffice it to say they each have issues. Will Mirabeau bolt when she finds out Marguerite suggested she work with Tiny? Is Tiny her lifemate? Will they both accept being lifemates and get together if they are? I really enjoyed this story! I totally recommend you read this story! I will read them and finish my review of this book, however I am reading the Argeneau Series right now.
I love a good shape shifter book. Mysteries are just ok. All 3 of these stories are mediocre at best. Tiny's story is a short one, and feels longer than the others. There is little relationship building. Mirabeaus story is basically a non event. The only thing that comes out of this story is Stephanie's power emerging, but having read the books after this one first, they were also covered and non-essential to the series either. Leo never made an appearance.
This is stand alone. As for the shape shifter Therian story, there was no shifting. There was a sort-of teenage drama to it, but the adult came to the rescue. It had a kind of cliff hanger feel to it at the end, and since the story didn't grab me, I won't be exploring other books by the author. From there you can navigate to the title you are interested in.
