Sometimes, I’ve got a few of hours to kill before “something”. Like say… while I wait in the car as my husband does his “man” shopping (instead of dragging my feet behind my husband at a home improvement store to stare at wood for hours. Or bricks). Or like, I dunno. A slow period during work (or an extra long break) where all you can do is sit and wait. An extra long wait in the waiting room. Oh! I know. A plain, train or automobile trip that could go by in a heartbeat if you had something awesome to read.

Zane’s Tale: A Succubus Diaries Short
The perfect little short story to hold me over while I await the next installment in the series. Now, to be honest, it was over quick. But there is a part that makes you forget it’s almost over, and let’s you just live in that moment.
In the meantime that I pick up the latest two books in the “Love at Stake” series from Kerrelyn Sparks (one that just came out, and one that will be released in a couple of weeks), I have decided to bide my time with some short stories from some of my favorite authors, in the “Bite” anthology.
So far, I have finished the first two:
- The Girl Who Was Infatuated With Death by Laurell K. Hamilton
- One Word Answer by Charlaine Harris
Both are, apparently the shortest stories in the anthology, however I enjoyed them both.
The one from Laurell K Hamilton was reminiscent of her days before Obsidian Butterfly (sexually charged but not too descriptive), and I liked it, because it consisted of one on one time (mostly emotional) with Jean-Claude (which has become rarer and rarer towards the latest books).
