    This anthology contains 4 short stories, but my rating is for 2 stories only:Wild For You by Kathryn Anne Dubois (no rating)I didn't read this story because I knew there's cheating in it. Bill Clinton doesn't agree with my definition of cheating, but that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.Wanted by Kimberly Dean (4 stars)This was a fun read with a sexy (but slightly incompetent) hero and a smart and resourceful heroine. The mystery/suspense was weak and its resolution was kind of disappointing, but the romance was good. Some suspension of disbelief was required to buy it, but that's how things work in Romancelandia.Secluded by Lisa Marie Rice (4 stars)I love (almost) everything that LMR writes, and this story was no exception. The basic plot was very similar to Dangerous Passion, so the story lost some impact to me. I considered dropping the rating of this story to 3 stars because of that, but then I didn't think it would have been fair since this story was written before Dangerous Passion and I should rate it without prejudice. On its own, this was a very good short story with LMR's typical obsessive hero and somewhat innocent heroine. It isn't a "must read", but I don't regret reading it.Flights of Fantasy by Bonnie Hamre (no rating)I didn't read this story because I knew there's ménage in it and the heroine has sex more than once with someone other than the hero. Not my cuppa.

    Bought this for the Lisa Marie Rice story, but all four were longer short stories than typically found in this type of anthology. All were modern and erotic:1. Wild for You by Kathryn Anne Dubois was set in Africa. A college professor and a few of his students were living in a village to study the plant and animal life when a very spoiled and pampered Georgie wonders off and gets lost in the jungle. Georgia encounters poachers meant to harm her when she gets rescued by a very hunky “Tarzan.” "Tarzan" was lost from his family when he was 3-ish, barely spoke, but did comprehend English. He had a strong desire to mate and chose Georgie as his mating partner.The beginning and ending were good, but the middle bothered me. “Things” transpired that took the romance out of the story for This Reader. That's all I can say without posting spoiler alerts. 4 Stars2. “Wanted” by Kimberly Dean was about a hot computer programmer accused (framed) of selling defense secrets and was on the run (for 6 months) from an equally hot FBI agent, Jeff Reno. They exchange nightly e-mails…I like to go with a little fluff in a story, but this one pushed my limits in many ways. Just too unrealistic. They both had the hots for each other after one brief moment of Danielle being accused of treason and she ran. 3 Stars3. “Secluded” by Lisa Marie Rice was pretty good. Although why the story began the way it did has me questioning what was cut to condense it for a short novella…Two neat characters, Nicholas Lee and Isabella, spend an incredible 2 weeks together while hiding from a very dangerous mafia-type man who has been after Nicholas for years. Some parts of the story contradicted things (he never killed?), but it was very good, very steamy, and romantic. Almost (ALMOST) hit the danger zone on the difference between loving and possession…4 Stars4. "Flights of Fantasy" by Bonnie Hamre was a stinker for me. :-( The control, weirdness, menage scene, sex with other people before the menage scene...this was so not romantic, imo. Yancy (and what a stupid name for an American Indian) sat in the back of a college class that Chloe attended many years ago and fell in love with her. He followed her career, lovers, etc all this time. He wanted to become wealthy and supposedly did it all for "her." He coerces her boss (photo-journalism) to force Chloe to go on this fantasy yacht vacation or loose her job. Yancy owns the Fantasy yacht and has regular cruises to fulfill peoples fantasies. There are other guests and Yancy has two of Chloe's former lovers there, too. She has sex with one of them (who gets mad at her), then the other (who claims he now owns her), then all three. All this time, Yancy is very possessive. Telling her she's "his." Hogwash. He was too controlling and the whole situation was weird. Blech!2 Stars

    "Wild for You" - 2 stars. This story didn't really offer any surprises for me in terms of plot (well, maybe a little unpleasant one). The spoiled rich girl and the wild man (who supposedly loves her but...)were not characters I felt sympathy for or even liked. It felt like something I would have wrote at 15, just a fantasy which transformed into a story becomes unrealistic, obviously . "Wanted" - 5 stars, even if it's far from perfect. But the tension, both sexual and otherwise, and even the emotions were well rendered. I could understand why the attraction between the characters because for 6 months they had spoken on the Internet (and I know a lot of relationships which started that way). And then there was the thrill of the chase, of course. Yes, the plot wasn't very complicated and the conclusion didn't bring a big surprise, but I got involved in the story and I liked the characters, especially the heroine. I felt I could understand all she did and why she did it. The sexy scenes were good, and not only that, but interesting, too."Secluded" - 4.5 stars. I've always loved Lisa Marie Rice's books and her tough, dark, intense heroes. This was an enjoyable read. The ending was nice. It reminded me of some movies I liked. I think this story is slightly less than it should have been because it had to be fit into a shorter frame. But I can understand that. "Flights of Fantasy" - 2 stars. The premise for the story was interesting, but the author insisted on ruining the whole thing. I know that some couples introduce other people into their sex life, but I can't accept that, neither on a personal level or in a supposedly romance story. This really clashes with the hero's personality - he's presented like a very possessive man who's been obsessed with the heroine for years (he frequently tells her she's "his"). So why would he arrange for a threesome with her ex-lovers? The author tells us is because he wishes to fulfill her fantasy. Come on! I don't believe that for a minute. I get that Bonnie wanted her story to have a little extra spice, and threesomes are certainly highly erotic, but, in romance, they "work" only in certain contexts, and this isn't one of them. The hero seems a bit weird, the heroine a bit sluttish (even if we are told this isn't her usual behavior) and the Brad character, a jerk. The other one left no impression on me. It seemed his only reason for being there was to provide the third..., well, you get my meaning.

    Wild For You by Kathryn Anne DuboisAn okay story, with a few hot scenes. Our hero "Tarzan" is not faithful to our heroine, but as far as he knew his "Jane" had left him, so -- In any case, it was an enjoyable fantasy in the What If category.Wanted by Kimberly DeanRealistic? um, no. But full of fun and hot scenes? Yes. I pick this as my favorite of this book. Secluded by Lisa Marie RiceI got a bit annoyed at the writing in this one...could have benefitted from some tighter editing. The story was all right, but I wanted to know more about our man of mystery. I liked the ending.Flights of Fancy by Bonnie HamreMINE..yeah, that got old. He knew her from a distance in college and has been stalking her ever since? Yeah, I didn't really like this one. There were some hot sex scenes though.

    Let me make perfectly clear that my star rating is purely for the Lisa Marie Rice novella (3rd in the book). The first story was horrific - poorly written about this Tarzan-type man and it actually included an unfaithful hero and an incest scene! I honestly got the impression it was written in the 1970s and just thrown in this book. The romantic suspense story was good and the final story bored me so much it was a DNF. Lisa Marie Rice's story was very her, and seemed like a prototype for Dangerous Passion, which is one of my favorites (shout out to Drake, you sexy beast!). I would hope the publisher would consider separating these out into little e-novellas, but I'm guessing a few of these stories would never get read otherwise!

She didn't really know what love is enough to love someone.Wild For You by Kathryn Ann Dubois ---- 4 starsWho among us hasn't dreamed of being Jane when we watched an old Tarzan movie?Wanted by Kimberly Dean ---- 4 stars

    Four hot stories: a FBI agent chases a suspect by day, and fantasizes about her by night. A college girl gets lost in the jungle and is rescued by a wild man - who's never seen a girl before! A fantasy cruise where first names and occupations are the only introductions... and a man with enemies who bargains with a father for a few weeks with the woman he wants. Each story is unique and each is HOT!

    I read Lisa Marie Rice's story in this. Pretty standard stuff, for her; a tough, jaded man who has a lot of wealth and influence falls for a beautiful younger woman, but his situation won't allow for anything more than an affair of a few weeks. I was disappointed. Everything happened too fast, both the hero making his move and the heroine acceding. What I enjoy in romance novels is the development of the relationship, not the erotic scenes.

    First off, I'm not a fan of short stories. I chose this book because I needed something light and fluffy to read. This book did not fall into that category for me. I found all of the leading men in all of the short stories to be extremely possessive and needlessly demanding. There were 2 stories that had what I consider to be rape (when the woman says no and the manPowers on through). All in all not a good choice for me.
