B.J. McCall’s ALIAS SMITH AND JONES, pairs Meredith Collins up with a handsome stranger who is trapped with her in Chicago’s O’Hare airport.  One wild night of lust turns into so much more when her one night stand wants more than just one night.  And he is willing to go to any lengths to prove it.

Shannon Hollis brings us STRICKLY BUSINESS, a lusty tale of ever so proper Elizabeth Forrester and her too sexy boss Garret Hill.  The mutual attraction is almost enough to make Elizabeth forget she is the one who wrote the sexual harassment policy forbidding such romances.  Is Garret’s love strong enough to overcome her inhibitions and bring out the real woman trapped inside the business suit?

In INSATIABLE, Chevon Gael tells us about photographer Marc Remington’s search for the one who got away.  Ashlyn Fraser arrives at his door, slightly tipsy from her birthday celebration, ready for her thirtieth birthday present—a sexy photo shoot with a professional photographer.  What neither one of them expects is the wild chase that follows.


The last story, and my personal favorite, is by Sandy Fraser.  BENEATH TWO MOONS is futuristic tale of love and trust, not to mention a healthy dose of lust.  Can Dr. Eva Kelsey ever forget the brief time she shared with Connor, the rough and tumble colonist?  Not when his every word and look serves to remind her of the passion they shared.  But will her feelings jeopardize everything she has worked for?


These four short stories were a wonderful escape.  All four dealt with the common theme of a woman finding out that there is more to life than just work.  The love scenes were steamy, and the characterizations were fabulous.  The best part?  If you find an author you like, they all have full-length books available!  I’ll be waiting eagerly for the next volume of SECRETS to find some great new authors.
