WHERE TO YOUR FANTASIES TAKE YOU? — THE WIDOW'S AUCTION by Sabrina Jeffries — In an exclusive gentlemen's club in Victorian London, adventurous ladies are available to the highest bidder. Yet how far will a modest widow go to fulfill her fantasy of being auctioned off as a rake's midnight plaything? — THE AWAKEN...  more

Under the blazing heat of the Borneo sun, a beautiful naturalist's dream comes true -- to live among the feral jungle creatures. But an untamed, irresistible beast of another sort forces her to explore her own wild side.

LUISA'S DESIRE by Emma Holly

From the depths of the dark unknown, a child of midnight has arrived in a spiritual Tibetan refuge to rid herself of wicked desires. Here this ageless beauty meets the one man who can save her -- or damn her soul forever.

MR. SPEEDY by Elda Minger

In a private, all-male school for seduction, she might just graduate with honors. If she can only maintain her disguise long enough to teach the man of her dreams a few lessons.

Ugh. If I read one more of these anthologies...they're turning me off the fantasy & supernatural genre, I swear. Horrid. Not one redeemable nugget among them. Trite, tepid, & eye-rollingly predictable. Insipid, sleep-inducing dialogue. Mind you, I already thought that Feehan was the worst writer in the genre, and I'd tried a book by Emma Holly (Menage), which proved to me that it IS actually possible, with a true gift like hers, to make a book about a threesome so boring you can't wade through it.

I hate that feeling you get when you're reading one of these...that the author started out trying to do a full length story and then got a call for a short story and went, "well, I'll wrap it up then!" in three pages.

Skip it. Not worth your time.

Four excellent stories by four of the best! Each stosry had a very strong plot, well developed h/h.
The Widow's Auction (Jeffries) is set in England, where a very proper widow is challenged by a handsome aristo who wants to include a factory in her orphanage for boys. Her best friend goads her into the "widow's auction" at a mens club to get her out of her workaholism/mourning.
Luisa's Desire(Emma Holly) is set in Tibet, where paranormal meets yogi.
Mr. Speedy (Elda Minger)two top reporters set out to write an inside story on the latest sensation: a weekend seminar for men which guarantees
"The Swiftest Seduction"- 24 hours from "Hello" to "It was good for me".
The Awakening (Feehan). She's an exotic animal vet lured to the jungles of Borneo in spite of every warning of danger. He's a hottie in any climate and welcomes her back to her first home.
All four hold up well, for a change!

I ordered this anthology to read the Sabrina Jeffries novella, and it was the only one worth reading ... in fact I didn't finish any of the other 3 novellas.
