Danielle Carrigan is a successful interior designer who is used to being in control.  Little do her friends know that Danielle’s secret desire is to give up that control and have a man dominate her in bed.  Danielle is hoping that somehow her wish will come true on the tropical island paradise of the “O” Spa.  When she meets Ethan Sharpe, a commander in the U.S. military who is at the Spa for rehabilitation from an injury, Danielle knows that she has found her man.  The only problem is that Ethan is convinced that Danielle needs someone who can give her one hundred percent, and he’s afraid that he’ll never again be the strong and perfect man she needs.



Lauren Sampson is an accountant at a design boutique, which she and her two friends run, but Lauren certainly doesn’t look like an accountant.  She is tired of men who are only interested in her playmate body and pretty face.  Lauren’s secret desire is to have a man look past the outside and appreciate her for the smart and loving woman she really is on the inside.  Captain Ryan Thomas is recovering at the “O” Spa after an accident caused him to lose most of his vision.  When Ryan overhears Lauren confessing her desires to a friend, he decides that he can be the man to give her what she wants during her visit to the island.  Lauren soon realizes that she wants more than just a night or two with Ryan, but after being hurt so many times before, Ryan might not be able to see what is in front of him in more ways then one.


Abby Benton has always prided herself on being the “good girl.”  She has her entire life mapped out and has no intention of changing those plans.  She agrees to travel to the “O” Spa with her friends.  However, she isn’t looking for anything other then a relaxing vacation.  Nonetheless, a chance encounter with sniper Cody Lannon shows Abby that inside her good girl facade is a wild woman trying to break out.  Cody is more than happy to help Abby explore her new passionate nature.  But her exuberance and lust for life are starting to tear down the carefully constructed walls around his emotions.  Can Cody let go of the cold and distant personality of a military sniper and allow himself to feel for the first time?

SUN STROKED is a collection of three steamy stories sure to bring your blood to a boil on a cold winter’s night.  Danielle, Lauren and Abby are just average women who happen to have a secret fantasy and the privacy of the “O” Spa, along with the company of some very hot soldiers, gives the women the opportunity to let themselves go wild for once in their lives.  Cathryn Fox does an amazing job of bringing her characters, with all their foibles and insecurities, to life with imagination and humor.  SUN STROKED is a delightful read, sometimes sexy, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking... but always satisfying.  It’s a perfect book to pick up for yourself this winter and savor with a mug of decadent hot chocolate!
