    Disclaimer: I know one of the authors who has a story in this book. I brought the book. 3.5-4. Somewhere in between. The best story in this collection is "Devil's in the Well" because that was really good and played nicely with the idea of bargains, humanity, and slavery. Other stand outs include "Piece of Him"and "Animals". I like the title "A Dead Man is Hard to Find" to be honest. "Fallen" too stands out a bit, simply because it is a very interesting take on an old idea. It makes it fresh. Like Disclaimer: I know one of the authors who has a story in this book.

The other stories aren't that bad and make interesting use of the Southern idea. In fact, there is little reference to the Civil War. There is one story that is problematic for me "A Happy Medium" because a consent question isn't fully answered. Still good, fun collection.

    I am not a huge Gone With the Wind fan (please don't throw rocks), but I am in love with the antebellum south. And if you read many of my reviews, you know I love a good paranormal story line. So this anthology of short stories truly felt like a good fit for me. I enjoy reading anthologies because I get introduced to several authors at one time. There was not one author in this group that I had heard about before reading this. Now I'm in love with each one of them and added several to my TBR.

Not everyone likes short stories, but I love them. I honestly think they are harder to write because there is limited space to tell the story. Each one of these authors did a fantastic job of creating powerful stories that started with a bang and ended with an even bigger bang. The plots moved fast, the characters were well-developed, and the stories felt original. It's hard to say which were my favorites. There was only one I could not finish and that was no because it was written badly. In fact, it was written so well it gave me the willies. It was about bugs and I hated bugs. If a gun was held to my head and I had to pick two, I would pick "A Piece of Him" and "A Ferocious Blossom". But trust me when I say all these stories are good. It would be fun to read some of these for a Halloween book club. Reviewed by Terri

    This review is for Piece of Him by R.L. Merrill. I love the story! It has just the right mix of suspense, and creepiness. I thought the story was interesting and the characters intriguing. The author left me wanting more. Definitely worth reading. I received a copy of this story from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted.

I love reading paranormal and I love the south. With this book coming from Atlanta it was kind of like going home. I was raised about 20 minutes from Atlanta. I loved that these were short stories.

    Piece of Him by R.L. Merrill. It was a very fast read. A short. Not a HEA kind of thing but a true Paranormal sorta romance story. I enjoyed it but obviously I am a HEA kinda girl so that part right there was kinda disappointing. It was a short story though which I knew going in. I am a big fan of this author and love her stories short or long. Tate is the main character of this story. He's on his way to a new job in a new city and stops for the night at an inn.

He has tried calling the Inn for Lana but nobody ever answers. Was she real? Did he make up the whole thing? He feels like he is dying? Will he perish? Read and find out! :)

My only complaint is that it was over way to quick. Definitely a must read!

    I had such high hopes for this. But, the ratings on this don't seem terribly accurate as they are almost all for just one story. While A Piece of Him is one of the more solid stories, the majority of them fell flat. Standouts are: A Piece of Him, Bait, and Leftovers. The rest? Meh. So many are rather short, yet have quite a few errors that made them a bit difficult to follow (however, mine was a review copy so hopefully those were corrected). *Digital review copy provided by NetGalley and the publ I had such high hopes for this.

    I received A Piece of Him and voluntarily reviewed an ARC. I enjoyed this short story. It was quick and to the point but with a bit of creepy factor. However, I kind of wanted just another paragraph or 2 to see how it would work out in a relationship. Overall, a great story. I'll definitely read the rest from the anthology after reading this one.

    ***I received an egalley from Netgalley in return for an honest review.*** Fun collection of romance horror stories with zombies, ghosts, vampires, and some other creatures that go bump in the night. I enjoyed pretty much all of the stories and even thought that some could have been longer.

    I read A Piece of Him by R.L. Merrill in this anthology. Tate was staying at different hotels on his cross country trip and finally finds one that is really haunted, and meets Lana. But it's not an ordinary haunting. This short story is the perfect launch pad for a full novel. I read A Piece of Him by R.L. Merrill in this anthology.

    I have only read "Pieces of Him" from this book. It was a good story. First paranormal romance I've read. Amazing that one story can have someone intrigued in reading other types of books in the genre. I had no idea what to expect when I asked to read the story to review. I half expected to not enjoy it as much as I did. When I got to the end I was sad to see there wasn't more to read. **I was sent a e-copy for an honest review** I have only read "Pieces of Him" from this book. It was a good story.
