Janelle Denison has written a real scorcher this time; watch those fingers because the paper might just to up in flames! Naughty by Night is part of the I Love Bad Boys Anthology; if Janelle’s story is any indication of the steamy heat and sexual tension in the rest of the book, the booksellers will be hard pressed to keep the flames at bay and the temperature in the store down.

Gabe MacKenzie has been Chloe Anderson's friend for many years. There is an attraction between the two of them, the kind that makes Chloe’s heart beat rapidly and her legs turn to quivering jello. Of course similar things happen to Gabe - his rapid heart beat and a discomfort in his pants whenever he is near her. Gabe is in town on personal business and goes to the weekly poker game after being invited by one of Chloe’s three brothers. The game is at her house and needless to say it comes down to the last hand of the game which Chloe wins. Of course the last bet was not money, but a piece of paper which told what each person wanted from the other.

Chloe had chosen four nights of sexual fantasies and Gabe was to fulfill every one of them (since he had already in her dreams). My, oh my, did he fulfill them! While the "fulfilling" was happening, however, so were the deeper emotions of love and yearning for marriage! And we are not disappointed when love and everlasting passion go hand in hand.

Naughty By Night was a very fast read and one I could not put down. You might want to do yourself a favor and read it when you are alone so that you can grin like a fool at some of the things Chloe has Gabe do, and blush when he does them - very well I might add. I highly recommend this story to you (and I did to my husband also *grin*), but be forewarned - it is not for the weak of heart, sexual tension and steamy heat abound.
