If you’ve ever enjoyed some hot and spicy stories that push the sensuality limit beyond its boundaries, then you may well already have a volume of Secrets on your bookshelf! Written by some of the best erotic writers around, these volumes present short novellas that leap into love and lust feet first and make one heck of a splash.

In this Volume, Sandy Fraser tells us about “Flint’s Fuse”, which is quite short – in contrast to other things! To protect a businessman’s daughter, mercenary Flint must kidnap her and stash her away from possible harm. But who’s going to protect him from Dana Madison, a sensual bundle of energy who figures the best way to get even with her kidnapper is to kidnap his heart?

“Love’s Prisoner” takes a wonderfully lustful look at the mating habits of werewolves (and the women who love them!). Do not miss the first chapter of this story – you’ll howl – with laughter that is! Jeannie Lawrence certainly gets more than she bargained for when she’s stranded in an elevator with an incredibly handsome hunk who seems unable to keep his hands off her! Some girls have all the luck!!!

And some guys do too – as experienced lover Dr. Marcus Slade knows in Alice Gaines’ story “The Education of Miss Felicity Wells”. With a vast history of sensual experience to draw on, Marcus is the man that Felicity wants to instruct her on the proper way to interest her soon-to-be husband in bed! But can she learn about sex without learning about love?

Angela Knight’s delightfully spooky tale “A Candidate for the Kiss” concludes this anthology with quite a – um – bang! (No pun intended.) When reporter Dana Ivory eavesdrops on what she hopes will be a hot story, she gets a cool reception from one very strange federal agent, and a ride into what could be either a nightmare or the most sensual experience of her life – or death – or whatever the case may be! This is a hottie, and a great way to end a lovely collection of smoothly spicy tales! An excellent collection and a credit to the Secrets series.
