Dinner date after a hard workday should be heavenly. Of course, dates between the Beast Lord and Kate Daniels don’t always go as planned. Undead run amok, heads are chopped off, lawyers are deployed with extreme prejudice, and drunk vikings call people out.
(Novella was in the back of my Gunmetal Magic paperback.)
I believe you really need to read this series in order and have read the main books to follow / enjoy.
(It's a Kate Daniels book. Of course there is violence.)
What I Didn't Like:
I also enjoyed the developments with the guild following on from the events in Book four, Magic Bleeds, therefore I wouldn't recommend reading this out of sync with the main series.

He turned to me, a dreamy look on his pretty face. "We killed things. There was blood. Fountains of blood. And then we had barbecue.”
"Curran, I will punch you.”
“Rough play.” Curran pretended to shiver in excitement”
