Royal House of Shadows Quartet and good news for my friend

Four very popular authors combined their talents to contribute to a series of books about the Royal House of Shadows, each story loosely based on a familiar fairy tale which is given a paranormal twist.  Gena Showalter's Lord of the Vampires started the series, followed by Jill Monroe's Lord of Rage, then Jessica Andersen contributed Lord of the Wolfyn and Nalini Singh very nicely tied up the series with Lord of the Abyss.  This was an inventive way to showcase the talents of four different authors although I have not managed to read the first two as yet, I do already have Lord of Rage on my TBR pile (thanks to the Knight Agency) and I did enjoy the alternate versions of Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast depicted by Andersen and Singh.  An intriguing bonus was Ms. Singh's Desert Warrior which conjured up the lovely Harlequin series romances popular in past decades with its exotic location and intriguing sheik.  My Night Owl Reviews links are:  Lord of the WolfynLord of the Abyss

We had excellent news from our friend in Maine who was in the running to win a special truck from CAT.  The contest was open to residents of the United States and Canada and it was based on receiving the winning number of votes and we received the ecstatic news that he WON!!!  We have been so thrilled on his behalf and consider it mind-boggling that he was able to generate enough vote but it just goes to show you that it's always worthwhile to throw your hat in the ring...never know what you'll get unless you try.
