“No problem living up to its title. [HOTTEST BLOOD has] something to whet every appetite.”

Bayonne Journal

“The stories are stronger, more daring […] I’d hate to see [this series] end. As long as Gelb and Garrett keep the quality level as consistent as it is, I’ll keep recommending these books.”


“An entertaining anthology worth adding to your collection.”

Cemetery Dance

“Not for the weak-hearted or puritanical […] seek out this one (or its predecessors) for some naughty fun.”


“Their new collection contains 20 envelope-straining stories […] check out HOTTEST BLOOD.”

Rocky Mountain News

“It’s a doozy […] If you’re looking for something sexy and horrific, an anthology that really goes down to the nitty gritty, get a copy of HOTTEST BLOOD.”
