I prefer books that are more in depth and do not like these shorter stories but when you have these 4 authors can you really go wrong? Lady's Pleasure might have been one of the most sensual stories I have ever read - Robert and Abagail really have such and intense coupling - so erotic and pleasurable that you really do feel this amazing connection between this chance encounter! Dark Desire was a true story of dominance - and actually very well written and highly erotic - maybe not the emotional level of Lady's Pleasure but still very good. The Susan Johnson story was rather a predictable Johnson plot with a lot of verbal banter back and forth which might lack the depth of the other stories. Although by the end I truly felt badly for the marquiss and all he went through to find happiness. Ecstacy was what it sounded like a mystical world of unreal sex in a land where women rule. But the way it is written - very well done and a good fantasy read. all in all a very good book!
