This is a review of “Beauty” by Laurell K. Hamilton, it is an “Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter Sexy Outtake”. It was an e-special (to my knowledge, only available on its own as an ebook, however the back cover of my copy of “Kiss The Dead” reads: includes bonus chapter BEAUTY, an Anita Blake Sexy Outtake, previously available as an ebook). Chronologically it occurs after “Hit List” but before “Kiss The Dead”.
For some reason I had assumed it was going to be an Anita Blake short story. But seriously, “sexy outtake” should have clued me in. Basically, it’s just an Anita Blake sex scene. Enough said
