Love For Hire By Mardi Ballou - I didn't find the characters believable and I don't care for 'I betrayed you but I didn't real mean it' stories. 1 star
Second to None By Rhyannon Byrd - my favorite in this anthology. The stalker/suspense plot was interesting, the relationship is hot and I enjoyed the resolution - to the situation and to the romance. 4 stars
Tracked Down by Vonna Harper - warning - this one contains an attempted gang rape scene. The word 'primal' is used a lot... 2 stars
