Gemini signs meet their matches in this Zodiac short, by authors Shana Lanel and Mackenzie Reed.

Directing Claire is a highly charged erotica short. Writer Claire Reed takes a temporary job as a receptionist but due to the ‘circumstances’ of the job situation, she gets to spend all her time working on her manuscript. Until the day her boss asks for her help in a “life or death” sting operation. Claire suddenly finds herself in front of a camera --- and a dangerous audience --- performing scenes straight out of a porno film. Although scared to death Claire can’t help but get caught up in the moment of filming because her co-star is none other than her too-sexy boss Devon Marceau. Devon has no clue that Claire has lusted after him, though he admits to lusting after her, too. After the dangerous situation is over, the two get together and discover a mutual attraction that turns into love.

In Hearts Desire, Cassidy DeWitt is unsettled to hear a carnival fortune teller tell her that she’s about to meet her heart’s desire right outside the tent. When she leaves, she runs straight into Nicholas Kinkaide --- the lover from her past she never forgot. But the reunion isn’t a happy one. Nicholas left abruptly and disappeared out of Cassidy’s life without an explanation, and she’s never forgiven him for that. Now, Nicholas is back and ready to explain why he left. He wants Cassidy back, but she’s afraid of being hurt again. Thankfully, true love wins this round and the two lovers come together in the end.
