Mel Teshco
Something Wicked This Way Comes anthology has received a 5 lips rating from Two Lips Reviews. Here is what they had to say about Dragon Heat:

 "Dragon Heat by Mel Tescho has a lot of twists and turns for such a short story, but I found myself really enjoying it. This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Tescho and it made me wonder what else this author has out there. There is passion, heat, and a dragon you just have to meet."

and a 4 star review from Sizzling Hot Book Reviews.

"Something Wicked This Way Comes has something for just about every romance lover. The stories are all very different, crossing genres and stereotypes, and running through the whole gambit of emotions. Plus lots of Really HOT sex! Sexy shapeshifters, handsome highlanders, cursed tattoos and more."


Maree Anderson
