Each one of these authors has done mmuuuuucchh better work; all in all, the book was boring, inarticulate & a crashing disappointment.
Don't waste your time.

Good read. While the first and last stories were good I thought the second one was totally lame.

A cute and quick read. Three stories that are fun, sexy and loaded with passion. They take place either in or near the ocean.

"Hot and Bothered" is by Janelle Denison. The heroine designs settings for precious gems and finds out--she thinks too late--that her new, handsome lover was arrested for a jewelry heist. Interestingly enough there's a lesson to be learned in this story as well as a red, hot love affair!

MaryJanice Davidson wrote "Paradise Bossed." It's rather unique in that the heroine of the story dies early on while snorkeling, and her friends hire a psychic to try to find out what happened to her. They find out she's died, but continues to hover around them at the same time that the psychic (being the only one that can communicate and see the ghost) gets the hots for her. Not your average plot.

I enjoyed Nina Bangs' story "Hot Summer Bites" the most. It was about a female reporter who wants to do a feature on a "fantasy castle" so she comes for a visit. Little does she know there are shape-shifters (including talking cats!) and vampires around. Also, she's unable to predict that she'd fall for one of the hunky vampires. The story is really unusual and it's pretty funny at times. And, of course, it's not short on passion, either.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book!

Loved the 1st story, but then Denison is one of my fav's. 2nd by Davidson was also good. 3rd by Bangs was ok- 1st time reading her....will try more to see how they are. All around good trilogy of some really hot guys.

The last story was a Nina Bangs Sparkle Stardust story - great! The other stories were good but not great IMHO.

I picked it up for MaryJanice Davidson story Paradised Bossed. I didn't like the story. The concept of "ghost-walking" with spirits and having sex with them just wasn't for me. Not believable.

Crashing waves, intense heat, body oil, and men who give new meaning to a day at the beach... Three of todays most talented authors deliever all-new stories of the hunks who work and play at the sizzling seashore. By no means beach bums, these irresistable guys are as ripped as the waves and smooth as sand.... no shirts required...
