"strong entry"

Taming Kate by Jeanie Cesarini. New Yorker Kathryn Roman inherits a legal brothel in Love, Nevada. She rejects the lifestyle change, but the townsfolk send hunk Trey Holiday to persuade her to relocate as the Madame to the local cash crop.

Jared's Wolf by Mary Janice Davidson. Jared Rocke lives for one thing only to revenge the death of his sister from werewolves. To his personal disgrace, Jared desires Moira, protector of the werewolf pack. Soon these sworn enemies will need to unite to stop a killer even as love flares between them.

My Champion, My Love by Alice Gaines. In 1888 Upstate New York Celeste wants the same sexual and other freedoms granted to males, but denied her gender. She seeks a hero and thinks she has found him in Robert, a mayor, but love makes both redefine her quest.

Kiss or Kill by Liz Maverick. In 2043 DC, the world has dramatically changed and not for the better. Military officer Camille must decide between destroying or allowing Meat the Robo to live based on whether her target can prove he is human. Though he makes her feel good about being a woman, she has doubts whether he is a man or a machine.

All four tales are well written and fun to read because even the sexiest scenes are not written for shock value, but interwoven into the plots. This quartet contains strong plots and solid lead characters, but then again what else would one expect from the no longer SECRETS anthologies.
