Futuristic erotic romance anthology from New Concepts Publishing. This anthology has a little bit of everything: D/s, alien abductions and shifters. My favorites of the four are by Joy Nash and Jane Toombs. Nash's story about a fledgling, ambitious opera singer who falls for her "wacko" neighbor is compelling, and has some fun lines. Then, Toombs' story about a female shifter looking for someone to love, is compelling. This collection of stories is a little more unusual than the regular futuristic stories. The sex scenes are hot, and stories compelling (except for the first one - didn't care for it). Enjoyed the book.
In this quartet of novellas, four women discover love they never hoped to find, with a lover from beyond the stars....
Stolen Brides by Ashley Ladd: Boeing 747 pilot Kat Craven knows she's in deep trouble when two terrorists barge into her cockpit. When she's sucked into a vortex , she only wishes they were terrorists. No Navy Seals or Green Beret will come to her rescue ... across the galaxy, 400 years into the future.
Dream Guardian by Joy Nash: Jewel's new neighbor claims he's a fugitive from outer space. She thinks he's kidding, but for a guy with a body like Dar's, Jewel is willing to overlook a bad joke. Dar's escape from slavery on another planet has left him stranded on Earth at the worst possible time--without a psychic lover to protect him during a harrowing mental trial known as the Dream Journey, he will go insane. In Jewel, Dar recognizes his salvation. Only one question haunts him: will the passionate Earth woman survive her role as Dream Guardian?
Some Assembly Required by Dominique Tomas: Rahzel was a Mind Diver, living in physical isolation while linking her brain directly to the planetary computer system to keep everything running. Then a block of alien data infiltrated the system and she began to experience some extremely vivid and disturbing hallucinations. When La'rus stole into her system, she discovered a totally new meaning to "virtual reality."
The Loveland Curse by Jane Toombs: Misfit Zenna is thrilled to meet a sexy stranger at the Burning Man Festival. Despite the incredible passion they share, he turns out to be far stranger than she ever imagined, so strange her only alternative may be to kill him....
I agree with Elisabeth's review, except that my favorite story was by Dominique Tomas. That was really awesome.. I'd give the volume 4 stars except for the mediocre Ashley Ladd tale.
