Peyton knew there was something special about the woman who showed up on his doorstep. Not only did she claim to be psychic, but she bore a striking resemblance to the woman he had been doing all manner of naughty things to in his dreams. Will Peyton pay attention to Iris’s warning, or will he be the next suicide?
As the first offering in FLAVORS OF ECSTASY, EXTRA SENSUAL PERECEPTION started the anthology off with a bang. With a strong hero, a heroine that is a perfect match, and a villain that will make your skin crawl, this was an excellent read. The chemistry between Peyton and Iris was perfect, and made for some very hot and steamy scenes. Well done!
FRENCH KISS by Solange Ayre
As the scion of one of the bastions of society, Amaryllis was everything a proper society debutante should be-except for her fiancée Brenden, an Irish doctor. When her mother postpones her wedding again, Amaryllis resigns herself unhappily to waiting, until she finds out that Brenden is going to a meeting at a notorious brothel. Does he really love her, or is he only using her?
As an Irish immigrant, Brenden was used to the doors of society being closed to him, until he fell in love with Amaryllis. Once they were married, the stuffy upper class would be forced to accept him, but only if her parents stop postponing their nuptials. When Amaryllis follows Brenden to a meeting, suddenly the long wait doesn’t seem nearly so bad. Will Amaryllis and Brenden finally marry?
FRENCH KISS was a very entertaining story. I especially liked the setting, but some parts of it were not exactly believable. However, they did add an extra element of entertainment to the story, so I was willing to suspend reality! Brenden and Amaryllis had very intense feelings for each other, and it made the story a very good read.

TRAPPED by Cindy Spencer Pape
Tabrin Jones was not having a good day. First, the bounty she had been chasing trapped her in an escape pod with one of her competitors, then the jerk ejected it into space, leaving her stranded with a yummy cyborg, with several days to kill. How on earth was she supposed to amuse herself now?
Zeyd Vasari could think of worse fates. Sure, he was stuck in an escape pod with a pissed off bounty hunter, but he had had a thing for her for a long time, so this was his chance to make his move. But will their relationship last once they get back to civilization?
TRAPPED was amazing! The pairing of Tabrin and Zeyd was great, they were both strong individuals, but still managed to complement each other. They were also so hot together that they almost throw sparks, so that was also a plus. Great work!
