REVIEW

"Four graphic erotic romantic fantasies"

The Countess's Pleasure by Emma Holly. During the Victorian age in Bhamjran, widow Georgiana attends a sex dance performed by Iyan. Having no sexual experience in spite of her marriage, she wants Iyan and he wants her. However, he is an indentured servant trying to get his mother free from a wrongful conviction and she is a foreign aristocrat so nothing can come of this desire.

The Breed Next Door by Lora Leigh. In Fayetteville, Arkansas, Tarek is a Breed created to kill; he understands his inferiority to the natural born, but wants his neighbor Lyra anyway. He stops a professional from killing her and declares he will keep this woman safe though it means forfeiting his life for neglecting the undercover assignment he is performing.

Falling for Anthony by Meljean Brook. In 1811 Anthony goes to the Peninsular as a surgeon because his medical school sponsor demands this of him. Before he leaves his best friend's sister Emily seduces him. In Spain, a vampire assaults him but tastes the Sword of Norbridge "etched" on Anthony's soul. Anthony must return to England to keep his friend and his beloved safe, but he died in Spain.

The Blood Kiss by Shiloh Walker. Wolf King Roman wants his nineteen years old younger brother freed from the vampires who hold him or else. The werewolf sneaks into his adversary's estate planning to rescue his sibling only to be thrown for a loss when he meets the natural born daughter of vampire Lord Eduard, Julianna as he knows she is his pack mate.

These four graphic erotic romantic fantasies are terrific novellas that sub-genre fans will appreciate yet wonder how heated each tale could have been as full length novels.
