Title: Dark Bites: A Short Story Collection
Plot Type: Soul-Mate Romance (SMR)
Ratings: Violence—4; Sensuality—4; Humor—2-3
This is a collection of mostly DARK-HUNTER/DREAM-HUNTER novellas and short stories that were written over the past decade. Most have been published previously, but the first one is new. The final entry is a bonus scene from Kenyon's novel, The Guardian. Having read most of the stories previously, I'm glad that I borrowed this book from the library instead of purchasing it. The stories are O.K. for the most part, with the earliest being the best.

Gallagher is a Dark-Hunter who finally makes peace with his tragic human past as he spends Christmas with the Hunters in New Orleans.
In this story set in the Old West, Michael O'Connell is an outlaw who was dragged into a life of crime by his brother, Pete. When Pete steals money from a small-town orphanage just before Christmas, O'Connell attempts to return it, only to find that the boarding house in which the orphans live is run by Catherine, his estranged wife, a beautiful woman he deserted five years ago. So…bad brother, orphans, Christmas Eve, long-lost lovers…what do you think happens?
