Nothing about dating is easy -- especially when humans, shifters, vampires, Fae and aliens are involved. When did life get so complicated?

How Not to Date an Alien: There's a naked man in Kilana's bed and he's glowing... When he tells her he's hunting humans and his intention is to devour her, she knows she's on her own with the drooling, leering, orgasm-delivering fiend. Maybe dating an alien won't turn out to be as big a problem as she thinks.

How Not to Date a Fae: Deception and betrayal have driven Ario from the only home he's ever known, but he's determined to never look back, and never use magic again -- until he meets an irresistible red-headed Fae. If they're to survive, they must forge a bond strong enough to defy the gods. And Ario may discover dating a Fae isn't so bad after all.

How Not To Date a Skunk: Photographer Bilana thinks she can beat the heat and her migraine by taking her meds and getting out of the sun. But she wakes up to find a shape shifting mate invading her peace and quiet. She has to learn to accept change as it comes, but that's what happens when you learn how not to date a skunk.

How Not to Date a Vamp: What do you get when your greatest strength lies in not dying easy? If you are lucky and no one confuses you with a pop culture vampire, and if you diet and exercise to keep your weight down, you just might get the girl. Only if he overcomes these obstacles will Virgil spend the better part of his afterlife with Barb. If he can survive dating.

How Not to Date a Bear: Cosmetologist Gillian Leekey is a woman on a mission. She loves big, muscular, hairy guys, and Declan is a bear of a man. But after one night of passion, the Bear Shifter Mafia is declaring war at her front door! But that's what happens when you decide to date a bear.

Publisher's Note: How Not To Date... Vol. 1 (Box Set) contains the previously published novellas How Not to Date an Alien, How Not to Date a Fae, How Not To Date a Skunk, How Not to Date a Vamp, and How Not to Date a Bear.
