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.… (més)

I enjoyed these steamy stories 1) unique story best described by title His Body Electric, 2) stressed out LA woman goes to NM lodge to unwind, 3) DEA agent afraid to commit two years ago regrets & rebuilds, 4) her first love felt unworthy five years ago & tries to win her back.

I think this was the very first novella that I rated 5 stars, it was so incredibly good. Maybe it was because it begins at the same time that the previous book ends or just because of the characters and their relationship, but this one was awesome! I loved the dynamic between Maggie and Joe and how their chemistry was palpable even at the beginning of the story. Very, very good. ( )

FOR MAGGIE'S SAKE
LORA LEIGH

This story picks up just weeks after the ending of Dangerous Games. Maggie Samuels has been implicated by her dead husband, Grant Samuels, into the drug deals that he was killed over. Maggie is the daughter of a newspaper man and she loves Joe Merino. She left him because she didn't think that Joe would ever love her. She didn't realize that Grant just married her as revenge against Joe. Maggie is a smart woman that just wants a husband and family. She wants to help with finding what Grant left behind but she just can't remember anything.

Joe Merino is devastated that Grant betrayed him. Joe thought they were friends. Now he wants to protect Maggie from the Fuentes family. She has a price on her head which he can only make go away when the evidence that Grant hid is found and the Fuentes are put out of business. Joe is an honorable, intelligent man that is dictated to his job. He wants and needs to protect the innocent against the criminals that prey on them. He has always loved Maggie and now that Maggie is single he is determined to have her in his life forever.

As always this story is too short. It is well written and the sex scenes are hotter than fire. While this story is part of the series it could probably be read by itself. It is nice to see something good happening to Joe. He is a good man and he deserves to have a happily ever after. Maggie is a good woman and after the train wreck of a marriage to Grant she also deserve to find someone that will love and cherish her. This is a quick read and a nice addition to the series. ( )

As anthologies always go, 2 stories out of four were really good. Lora Leigh, and Lora Wilde came through with 5 star ratings, while the other two were hitting a 1-2 star rating. ( )
