Laurell K. Hamilton – Shutdown

An Anita Blake free short story during the current American Government Shutdown.
Selfpublished October 8, 2013.
Genre: paranormal romance.

It is a nice cover, but I can’t get it copied out of the .pdf file.

It’s very short, and is a conversation between Micah and Anita, and Richard and his new fiancée. Richard still wants the white picket fence marriage but he does not want to give up the rougher kind of sex with Anita and Asher. So they are trying to convince his fiancée that she should not feel threatened by Anita, and explaining their (sexual) lifestyle to her.

So, if you are curious to a bit more in depth explanation of a polyamorous lifestyle, you might enjoy this one. If you just love the Anita Blake series, this is a sweet morsel of a story to tie you over till the next full length book is published.

I am a big fan of the series, so I was happy to receive this in my email this morning. But, as I really dislike Richard, not sure where this is heading. He seems to be really going for Anita look-alikes nowadays…


No stars, as it is really too short for that.

  1. I am not a huge fan of hers. I did try the first Anita Blake but it didn't work for me. However, I do admire her for standing up and being vocal about the things she believes in!

  4. I tried the first book, but didn't like Anita. Maybe I should try the second book one day, but there are just too many other cool books out there.

    1. You either love the books or hate them, or start hating them when all the guys are added. I still love them and devour them quickly Sullivan.

  5. Love the series but a few books behind now. That's neat she sent out a short little freebie. Did you see her talking about her lifestyle on FB and how she's in a polyamorous relationship?

    1. Yes I did Anna, I admire her for that openness. So many people can't deal with that.
