3 very different stories of erotic romance
3 romantic tales of bad boys. I got this for Ms. Johnsons', but the other 2 stories were also great.
Of course it is a good read! Susan Johnson, and two other hot authors
Three good stories, set in different eras with good plots.
Read this anthology for Pam Rosenthal's story ... and it was the best of the 3 ... but the other 2 were good, as well!
Susan Johnson - Natural Attraction
Natural Attraction by Susan Johnson
To the fashionable world, Viscount Priestley is known for his utter lack of morals, his wicked wit, and his unfailing talent at seducing any woman who strikes his fancy-and then discarding her come morning. But the viscount has never met anyone like Nicky Wemyss. A woman who dresses as a man and immerses herself in science...who can eat and discourse with equal gusto...such a woman is more than an aphrodisiac-she is temptation itself. And the viscount makes it a habit never to resist temptation...
Fool Me Once by Katherine O'Neal
It's 1933, and Kate Frost is the most creative flim-flam artist in all of East London-until she meets her match in the ruthless, rakishly handsome Rhys. The seductive con man has a plan of his own: Under his careful tutelage, Kate will pose as a long-lost Aztec princess who will fool the world. But to become a goddess, she'll have to submit herself to his training completely, giving herself over to his every instruction, his every command, his every desire. But when two thieves fall prey to their own deceptions, there's no telling who is fooling whom...and who is no longer pretending at all...
A House East of Regent Street by Pam Rosenthal
The war with Napoleon over, seaman Jack Merion has turned his attentions and his newfound prize money toward real estate, specifically a house east of Regent Street that was once a fashionable brothel. Such a house could provide a generous allowance in rent. But someone else wants to buy the house, too. Like Jack, the mysterious Miss Myles has come up in the world the hard way, and she knows how to get what she wants. To gain the property, she's willing to meet all of Jack's terms-with pleasure-and Jack may just get an investment he never expected...
I've been avoiding anthologies but being a long-time fan of Susan Johnson and a recent, but loyal, fan of Pam Rosenthal, I decided to give this one a try. I'm glad I did.
Each one contained interesting (and extremely different) stories. I think I enjoyed Susan Johnson's story the best. Katherine O'Neil's contribution was the most original story. Pam Rosenthal's was extremely hot (perhaps over the top for those easily offended). All in all, a great historical anthology.
I got this book for the Susan Johnson story which was enjoyable but also predictable. I was pleasantly surprised by the two other authors.
I rate this anthology okay-to-good. Susan Johnson's story was my favorite (it's the "good" part), the other two were "okay". I think I have a problem with anthologies because there isn't enough plot development...I have a hard time believing the "and then they fell in love" part. However, I did enjoy this book, and think it's worth a read, especially if you're looking for something quick and spicy, which all of these stories were.
