Night Shift is now available
6 NEW novellas — Never Before Released
100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity


Summer in the Big Easy is hot. Inside Tulane Medical Center the temperature is on the rise.

A doctor nursing a broken heart. A wounded warrior with no interest in love. A single father finding the girl who got away. A combat nurse trying to adjust to civilian life. Two lost souls looking for love. A former detective looking for answers and an FBI agent who finds more than he bargains for.

Desire. Lust. Excess. New Orleans will never be the same.

Six never before released stories that will leave you breathless.

Dirty things happen in the dark.



Most of the authors of the Night Shift novellas were new to me, and the book served as a great introduction. The fact that the entire book’s proceeds are going to charity made the entire package twice as appealing; even though I got a review copy, I still went out and bought my own just because 🙂

“Off Duty” is a sweet story about second-chances–second chances in romance, and second chances for a family. I loved this story from start to finish. If you haven’t read Sawyer Bennet before, it’s a great introduction. This novella is part of her Off series, but works well as a standalone. 4 stars/A-

“Rebound” was my first story by Chelle Bliss. I liked its construction–it begins at the end, and then takes the reader back to the beginning to see how Flash and Fiona first meet. It’s a fun and sexy tour of both New Orleans and the road back from heartbreak. 4 stars/B+

“Wanting to Forget” was a little more problematic–it’s not really a romance; it’s one man’s destructive path toward getting a woman he believes he can’t have out of his head. It’s really hard to like Jordie here. Really hard. Since it’s a prequel to his full-length novel ( Overtime ), there’s hope for his redemption. I’m willing to give him a chance to turn things around, but at the end of this novella I don’t know if I would if I were Kasey. Jordie has a serious amount of work ahead of him. Hopefully there will be groveling. And a major attitude adjustment… 3 stars/ C

“Closet Confessions” was my first Kindle Alexander story. I really liked both Derek (“Dr. Baby”–adorable!) and Justin, and was rooting for them from the beginning. Ms. Alexander added a clever twist in her story that made it even more enjoyable. 4 stars/B+

Brenda Rothert’s “Healing Touch” was another first read for me. I loved the romance between Joss and Carson–it was steamy but full of laugh-out-loud moments, not to mention an awesome use of a Magic 8 ball. The Magic 8 ball really does know all! I’ll definitely be reading more from this author. 4 stars/A-

Eden Butler’s “Swimming in Shadows”, like Toni Aleo’s story, wasn’t really a romance, though the potential is definitely there. Also like the earlier story, this is a prequel for a longer work,Shadows and Lies , the first in a new series. Fortunately, though, Ryan’s a much more sympathetic character than Jordie, even though he too is in a pretty dark place. He’s an Avengers fan, which puts me firmly in his corner. 😉 4 stars/A-

Overall rating: 4 stars / B+

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
