Kimberly Dean broke into the publishing world in 2001 with a short story called "Playing With Fire", released by Black Lace Publishing in their Wicked Words 5 anthology. Since then, Kimberly has gone on to write for Red Sage Publishing and Ellora's Cave. She enjoys the freedom and creativity allowed in writing erotic romance, and reviewers have rated her as an "up and coming author" and a "rising star". Lynn LaFleur was born and raised in a small town in Texas close to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. After living in various places on the West Coast for 21 years, she is back in Texas, 17 miles from her hometown. Lynn also publishes with Ellora's Cave and when not writing at every possible moment, she loves reading, sewing, gardening, and learning new things on the computer. Liz Maverick writes women's fiction comedy for Penguin Putnam's NAL imprint and futuristic/paranormal action romance for Dorchester and Red Sage.
The three novellas collected here feature a futuristic arms dealer auctioned out of prison to seduce a businessman's rival, a divorc?e surprised by a declaration from her ex-brother-in-law, and a curator who gives a failed romance a second chance at the behest of her libidinous and ghostly great-great-grandparents. Contributors Maverick (What a Girl Wants), Kimberly Dean (High School Reunion), and Lynn LaFleur (Rent-a-Stud) are all previously published authors and their romance-writing experience shows. The character development and pacing are like those of traditional romance novels: sexual tension builds, bringing the characters closer together. Romance readers with an appetite for steamy sex scenes will find much to feast on here. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
