Laws of Nature: When Shaylee escapes from a kidnapping attempt, she manages to get to safety and the shelter of her neighbor Garrett's arms. Once there, she discovers she doesn't want to leave.
Bound in Blood: Anya is a protector for the vampire race. In the process of taking care of the threat to her people, she meets Ruben, who is delighted to find that she is his mate. Can this strong woman submit to a determined shifter?
Nature of the Beast: As a councilor for the vampire race, Kathryn has had to make hard choices--including sending Anya to take care of the scientist hunting them. One of the hardest thought is accepting that she is a shifter's mate. As a future alpha, Vance isn't willing to accept no for an answer.

"Fangs and Fur by Michelle Houston was a very stimulating read! ... With each story in this collection you learn just a little bit more of the “big picture” that Michelle Houston has in store for her lucky readers!" ~ Simply Romance Reviews
"Four different stories but all of them are connected. In reality the author could have just written one story about the situation and given all the characters roles. In saying that the passion of the couples in each story would not have been as well captured if bunched together. Separately they all get their own limelight and of course they all get their amazing love scenes. [...] Hot paranormal romance and a good storyline to boot. This is a nice collection of four quick saucy stories that will please a lot of appetites." ~ ParaNormal Romance Reviews
"Fangs and Fur is a good mix of suspense, sacrifice, eroticism, and interesting twists on vampire and shapeshifter culture, this is a fun anthology that twists and weaves together to form the unions of four unlikely couples. I enjoyed learning of the were physiology and liked that Shay went in depth on how exactly it worked as it made an interesting twist on how three siblings could be werefox, werecat, and werewolf. Each story follows a similar pattern, though each is unique in it’s own right and showcases each couples’ difficulties and unity nicely." ~ Bitten By Books, Rated 4 Tombstones

Reviews for Laws of Nature as part of the Samhain Scorchers anthology
"Ms. Houston wrote a great short story. I would love for this to have been in a longer format, but it isn't so I will deal with it. She had me hooked from the first word and it ended too soon for me. It was just a teaser. An enjoyable one at that." ~ My Book Cravings
"Laws of Nature by Michelle Houston provided a strikingly 'normal' setting for the paranormal premise of her story. In a way, the love story she pens makes it even more credible and appealing." ~ Enchanting Reviews
"Laws of Nature is fantastic, animalistic and a very fun romp, Ms. Houston is a definite read for shape shifter lovers!" ~ Paranormal Romance Reviews
"Laws of Nature is a wonderful story by Michelle Houston. The characters are well developed and come together with the plot to create a short story that reads more like a full length novel. I loved the passion in the story and hope to see more of these characters in the future." ~ Two Lips Reviews

"Michelle Houston leaves you aching for more in this quick but enticing read. You will be haunted by the characters long after you finish reading "Time After Time" and crave the ensuing continuation of their stories. My first time reading a book by Michelle Houston, but I assure you, not my last as I have become an instant fan." ~ Manic Readers, Rated 4 stars!
"(In "Sands of Time")...Ms. Houston grabbed me with Nicole's illness. (In "Turning Back Time") ...Another great story...both these tales are scripted with excellent imagery and very well written. I'd like to read more from this author perhaps in a full length novel." ~ You Gotta Read Reviews
"Time After Time has two steamy stories. Both stories are tightly woven together and greatly enjoyable. Michelle Houston has created an exciting premise. Nicole and Julie are extremely likable which makes it easy to become emotionally involved in the story. It doesn’t hurt that they both find sexy men to ease their pain. Time After Time was a sweet read." ~ Joyfully Reviewed
"Time After Time includes two short love stories. Both were entertaining and original [...] very good stories featuring women finding unexpected love and happiness. The setting, a Celtic castle, was as magical and enchanting as the plot. Readers looking for a short getaway full of mist and fantasy will like both of Ms. Houston’s stories." ~ HEA Reviews
Previously published as a Celtic Love Knot:
"Welcome to two emotional and well-written stories by author Michelle Houston. I found this anthology to be well written and very touching, with just the right amount of sensual and explicit scenes between the characters. The friendship portrayed between Nicole and Julie, along with the emotions displayed made this book worthy of reading. I was proud of both Ciaran and Roarke who were understanding and showed their love for these two women in amazing and loving detailed. Ciaran handled the threat of death to Nicole with perceptiveness and with genuine loving kindness." ~ The Romance Studio, Rated 5 Hearts!
"[SANDS OF TIME] a sweet love story that invites fantasy, as well as mortality, into the gathering of life. This story was excellent. Beautiful word pictures painted on a lovely canvas. I was immediately drawn into the fantasy. [TURNING BACK TIME] accompanies SANDS OF TIME, and it too is excellent. I loved both stories, although I wished they were longer. If you love fantasy and true love, [CELTIC LOVE KNOT VOLUME 8] is a must buy." ~ Enchanting Reviews
"Ms. Houston does a nice job of delivering soft, almost sweet, erotica in both stories." ~ Bitten By Books
"I enjoyed the way Ms. Houston illustrated Nicole’s feelings of liberation. She had a little apprehension, but when presented with a really hot guy and an opportunity, she went for it — she’s dying, right, so why not? It’s difficult to develop rich characters in a short story, but the friendship between the women was heartwarming. [...] In both stories, the interaction within the male/female relationships could have been deeper, but the paranormal aspects of the storyline supported the quick connections between them so it didn’t distract from enjoying the adventures. [...] Both stories were well written and I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys paranormals." ~ Whipped Cream Reviews
