Elena and Clayton are on their honeymoon but both are kind of bored with the normal, mundane sightseeing available in St Louis and as werewolves there are limited places to just change, let loose and run. But since they are trying to be romantic neither is willing to tell the other that they are bored. Complications pop up when a stray werewolf with something to prove starts stalking them. How they solve the problem and also learn to communicate better with each other is the theme throughout Stalked.
Off-Duty Angel introduces us to Evie a dark witch and half demon who also happens to be dead. But that does not mean she is lazing around the afterlife happily. In fact, with her lover Kris busy in court (yes, there is court in the afterlife) she is getting antsy for something to do. Kris has her follow a man (also dead) who might be of use in one of Kris’ cases but what starts as a straightforward chore turns more interesting when Evie stumbles into a dimensional passage and finds a long-lost book of great importance.
I had not read anything in this series before this book. Both short stories are easy to follow and enjoyable even without the background of the full series. There is an excerpt from the book Thirteen which is non-stop action and makes me want to read the series. Recommended ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
