Overview

In this sizzing collection from some of romance's hottest authors, you'll read four sexy short stories about women who discover that real men do it better...

In Lora Leigh's FOR MAGGIE'S SAKE, Maggie Chavez from Leigh's sexy Navy SEALs series is in protective custody with a member of her former lover's SEALs team. Joe, her ex-lover, thinks Maggie is hiding information from him about a powerful drug lord and the deaths of some SEALs. He intends to seduce her and get the information before she can sell it back to the drug cartel. But when a member of the notorious crime family captures Maggie and holds her hostage at gunpoint, Joe realizes how wrong he is, and only he can save her life.

In Susan Donovan's BED AND BREAKFAST, a stressed-out corporate dynamo with designer boots and a bad attitude is sent to the New Mexico mountains to "get centered" or not come back to Los Angeles. She arrives at the rustic Windwalker Lodge north of Santa Fe, only to find the place in the middle of a renovation and the hunky owner in a pair of lounge pants with no shirt and no idea she was coming. She plans to leave on the first available shuttle the next morning, but one of the area's notorious rains washes out the bridge, and she's stuck. Though resistant at first, she eventually lets the beautiful setting and the extraordinary man give her a new perspective on life, love, and especially sex.

In Lori Wilde's SIREN'S CALL, Annie Grave is back in her hometown, St. Augustine, looking after her grandfather's dive shop as he lies bedridden with a broken hip. Though she is a Harvard MBA with a high-powered finance job in Manhattan and a boyfriend on the brink of proposing marriage, she's never forgotten her first love, sun-bronzed dive instructor Duncan Stewart--or the day years earlier when she lost her virginity to him and he told her it was just a fling. But what she doesn't know is that Duncan has regretted that decision every day since. Afraid of not being able to hold onto a smart, sexy, beautiful woman like Annie, he pushed her away and ran away from St. Augustine. But now she's back, and so is he, and he's cooked up a plan to win her back. After all, what girl could resist the lure of buried treasure, and a hot, handsome Scotsman to guide her on the hunt?

In Carrie Alexander's HIS BODY ELECTRIC, an aloof stranger arrives at Karen Jaffe's farmhouse seeking shelter at the height of a violent lightning storm. Strange events follow--the power goes out, every clock stops, sparks fly from the visitor's fingertips. Alone in the dark with him, Karen uses her skills as a phone sex operator to seduce the mystery man, uncovering the secrets and erotic pleasures of HIS BODY ELECTRIC.

It¿s been two years since Joe Merino¿s best friend married Maggie two full years that Joe has struggled to forget that Maggie was his, if only briefly. Assuming that Maggie loved her husband, Joe fought to accept and support his friend¿s marriage and push his love for Maggie from his mind. Now, everything has changed. With all of Joe¿s prior beliefs crumbling to dust, he has to re-examine everything he thought to be true. It is up to him to find the truth buried deep beneath the lies and betrayal. Because no matter which way the evidence points, he can¿t believe that Maggie is guilty of committing the heinous crimes of which her now dead husband has implicated her of doing in his diaries. Maggie Samuels¿ life has become one continuous nightmare from which she can¿t seem to wake. While her marriage was dead long before she was widowed, Maggie can¿t believe the extent her husband went to in order to make her look like she was part of his criminal operation. Now, Maggie finds herself at the mercy of the one man who betrayed her love, Joe Merino. Though she has never stopped loving Joe, she lost faith and trust in him long ago. She must search inside herself to trust the one man capable of proving her innocence. I adore Lora Leigh¿s Navy SEALS series! I¿ve been following the lives of these exceptional men through Reno¿s Chance, Dangerous Games, and now with FOR MAGGIE¿S SAKE. Joe Merino is power personified. I was humbled at his willingness to let his best friend find happiness, even at the sacrifice of his own. His strength in the face of such abject betrayal by his best friend was amazing to read. Maggie¿s bravery in the face of adversity and her willingness to confront danger head-on kept me on the edge of me seat dying to know what would happen. And when these two multi-dimensional characters came together, it was pure pop and sizzle! FOR MAGGIE¿S SAKE is reverently filed on my keeper shelf with the rest of my Lora Leigh library. ***Natasha Smith for Romance Junkies***
