A Spell for Master Vervain by Lee Welch

Apprentice magicians aren’t supposed to fall for their masters, but after a year of longing, Kit is desperate for Master Vervain. Kit casts a forbidden spell to raise an incubus doppelganger of his master—oh, the things he’ll do with that incubus! But Kit’s invoking forces he can’t control and anything can happen when love and magic are mixed.

Finding the Words by Elizabeth Coldwell

On a simple night out, Brendan’s life changed forever. He gave up college lecturing for the world of private tutoring. He may be a virtual recluse, but at least he’s safe. When student Zack approaches him for help with understanding poetry, he’s reluctant to take him on, afraid any connection to his old life might stir up the memories.

Being around Zack awakens long-buried desires in Brendan. He wants to act on his impulse to get closer, but he needs to find the words to say how he really feels.

The Silent Treatment by Elna Holst

Reverend Jane Sinclair has been preaching nothing but fire and brimstone lately. After being dumped by her long-term partner, her mood has been going from bad to worse, and it deteriorates further when her vicar strong-arms her into going off on a yoga retreat. Once she arrives at Serenity Farms, however, the sultry and playfully dominant yoga instructor soon has her singing quite a different tune. A very, very quiet one.

One Small Step by Riza Curtis

Student mage Ilya regrets not paying more attention in class when he teleports two hundred miles instead of the hundred yards he was supposed to go. Concussed, exhausted, and completely underdressed for the bitter winter weather, Ilya is rescued by the handsome Søren.

Sparks fly between the two mages while Ilya recovers, but Ilya must return home. Unable to use his magic and not skilled enough to attempt teleporting back, even if he could, Søren insists on making the journey with him. But train rides and bandits reveal something more between them.

Shedding Doubt by Danielle Wayland

Twenty-six-year-old Grayson is on a mission to get the most out of his gym membership, but when he goes at it too hard on his first day and slips off the treadmill, embarrassment makes him want to quit. Heath, a gym rat, rushes to his aid and offers to help. Initially suspicious of his motives, Grayson reluctantly accepts his help.

The more time they spend together, the more their friendship grows. They both have internal battles keeping them apart, but a Halloween party might just be the place to have a heart-to-heart.

Academic Temptations by Karmen Lee

Twenty-three-year-old Savannah Archer has kept her sexuality buried for years out of fear of being ostracized by her disapproving community. After getting pregnant in high school and putting off college for five years to raise her son, she is finally attending college—away from the prying eyes.

In her first class of the semester, she meets Anetta Springs, who is not only her professor, but also her academic advisor, and the attraction is immediate. Savannah and Anetta both know that the potential consequences of a teacher-student relationship are life-changing, but a book club and a meddling sister may not give them a choice.

The Sidhe’s Apprentice by Morwen Navarre

For anyone serious about magic, studying with a Sidhe Master is essential. Alistair Brady is very serious, and when he’s chosen at a Calling—a search by the Sidhe for new students—he’s elated. However, his assigned Master, Cianán, doesn’t want a new student and makes it painfully obvious.

Despite Cianán’s disdain, Alistair is determined to learn magic. But Alistair has difficulty finding the place inside where magic lives, and even the simplest spells continue to elude him. He just needs to figure out what’s missing, while trying not to let his growing attraction to the cold and aloof Cianán show. It takes a backfiring spell to show both Alistair and Cianán exactly what’s missing to make Alistair’s magic come alive.

Dr. Marissa Muniz worked hard to earn her Ph.D., so she is rightfully outraged when she detects plagiarism in the work of wealthy grad student. When Muniz confronts Libby Highsmith, the young woman begs for a second chance.

Ms. Highsmith must propose a new master’s thesis and design a project to serve as punitive measures. Muniz accepts the thesis proposal but balks at the project—a replica of the paddle used in private schools and a contract promising secrecy.

    This anthology contained 8 short stories. Short stories are notoriously difficult to write as it is so difficult to fit a story arc successfully within one. Some of the stories I enjoyed more than others and there were a couple I loved. Overall this anthology was a 4 star read for me.

    A Spell For Master Vervain
    I really liked Lee Welch’s story of earnest Kit and unattainable Vervain it had humour and heartfelt moments and the ending left me with a smile on my face. I would love to revisit them in another longer story.

    Finding The Words
    I found this story quite sad, although it ended on a happy note I couldn’t shake off the tragedy that occurred at the start. Maybe if it was a longer story I would have had time to move on emotionally but at this length I didn’t.

    The Silent Treatment
    I found this story where the interplay between the two main characters was nearly silent very intriguing. The writing was descriptive so I clearly understood what the characters were feeling and the ending was delightfully vague. It was as though we were granted a glimpse into the possibilities of what could be between Jane and Anita.

    One Small Step
    I enjoyed this cheerful read, Søren and Ilya complement each other perfectly and the gentle humour of their exchanges amused me during their story. The support Søren showed Ilya was heartwarming. There was only one note that jarred. I’m not sure what the mother being a harridan added to the story, I think it would have worked perfectly without her presence.

    Shedding Doubt
    I totally empathised with what Grayson felt when he first entered the gym. The banter between him and Heath made me smile. As Heath championed him it was very satisfying to read about Grayson’s spirit lifting. An enjoyable story featuring three lovely guys ( I couldn’t overlook Brett 🙂)

    Academic Temptations
    The story mainly centres on three scenes, two with Anetta and Savannah the romantic leads and one with Anetta and her sister Kelise. I found the interactions between Anetta and Savannah quite unbalanced, as well as the power differential of professor and student, Savannah came across as quite child-like which I found unusual considering what her life had been up to that point. I loved Kelise’s wicked sense of humour and her exchanges with her sister had me grinning.

    The Sidhe’s Apprentice
    I love stories with magic in them and the world building was great in this one. I love getting all the details of the magic, This story and Lee Welch’s were my two favourites

    Press Copy To Begin
    This story didn’t work at all for me, I didn’t feel a genuine emotional connection between the MC’s at all. I also found it to be pretty much plotless.
