Book Description

THE GIFT by Samantha Kane

On Christmas Eve, 1817, Captain Jeremy Highsmith of the Royal Navy and his best friend Lieutenant Rhys Wilkinson return to England after almost a year in captivity. Their bond of friendship grew even stronger as they were tortured while being held for ransom by the Bey of Algiers. All that kept them going was the idea of returning to Jeremy’s wife, Cordelia, the woman they both courted and are both still in love with. But will Cordelia be willing to accept both of them…in her heart and her bed?

For Cordelia Highsmith, the greatest Christmas gift she could ever imagine is the return of her husband and his best friend. But can she accept the even greater gift they offer…the two of them, hers, forever?

MY HEART'S DESIRE by Kate Pearce

After a dreadful disfiguring accident and the loss of her husband, Caroline Lyndhurst has spent the last two years hiding away from society. One man has never forgotten her. Jasper, Lord Mansell is determined not only to see her again, but to persuade her that in the spirit of Christmas, true love can bloom again.

Warning: This anthology contains m/f/m sex scenes.

The Gift 3.5*
Samantha Kane
This is probably one of the best historical ménage books I've read so far. I really liked the characters Cordelia, Rhys and Jeremy. The men come home after a year of being heals captive after realizing they love each other and Cordelia. Now all they have to do is convince her this is real and it will work. It turned a little sappy for me in the end but I really wished the story was longer so we could see their future.

My Hearts Desire 4*

Caroline is still at her sisters house two years later after going there to recover from the accident that took her husbands life. She is basically hiding from the world and the people that will judge her for her scares. Jasper has always loved Caroline and has come to her sisters house party in hopes to convince her they could have a life together if only she will,allow it b

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Really Good Erotic Short Stories ***4 1/2 Stars*** January 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed these erotic short stories.


The first story by Samantha Kane, "The Gift" is a ménage romance. Although I don't usually read this genre of books, I thoroughly enjoyed this short story. It is an extremely poignant story of two men who return home after being held as prisoners of war for several months. Both men, Rhys in particular, suffered extreme cruelty and torture at the hands of their captors. Jeremy and Rhys return home to Cordelia, a woman they had both courted and loved prior to her marriage to Jeremy.

Jeremy and Rhys have been best friends for many years. However, while P.O.W.'s they realized a newfound love for each other. Their greatest desire is that Cordelia will be willing to accept them both so the three of them can forge a new relationship with each other.

This story really touched me on an emotional level.

I was particularly sympathetic to Rhys who had suffered so much and was both physically and mentally scarred from his horrendous experience. I was happy Jeremy, Cordelia, and Rhys were able to get their HEA, but I felt the story ended a bit abruptly. An epilogue would have been nice to allow the reader to see how the three were faring a little down the road. Otherwise, a very entertaining read. I give this story 4 stars. BTW of course it's not clean...there is sex, it is graphic, and the language is crude. It is after all, an erotic story. LOL


The second story, "My Heart's Desire, by Kate Pearce is a wonderful erotic story. I loved it! A five star read as far as I am concerned. The story is about a young woman who not only loses her husband, but also suffers extensive disfigurement during an accident.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scorching Hot Historical Romance Short Stories January 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This dualogy features two hot historical erotic romances which are each followed by the authors interviewing each other which was cool.

The first story by Samantha Kane is the beginning of a menage involving m/f/m and hinting at m/m/f. It explored two men coming home after being tortured POWs during the Victorian era, discovering how they felt about each other & the woman they both love.

Second story by Kate Pearce is a second chance romance for a scarred heroine who can't see how the hero can feel more than pity.

Both are scorching hot & nicely plotted, set during the Christmas season for the short stories that they are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unconditional acceptance and love too March 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two good short stories of love and acceptance. I really liked the second one because I know most of us see our flaws as unattractive and unacceptable, though to me they make us what we are and are part of us. It is rare to find someone who loves us and accepts us unconditionally, for exactly who we are. Yes, they are hot and steamy too. Bravo ladies!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother wast of time March 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very disappointed in this book. Not at all what I expected. There are actually two books. The first one I didn't like at all. Not into the kind of story of two men attracted sexually to each other and then a girl thrown into the mix also. The second book was not bad. Don't waste your money on this. There are not many books I don't like, but this was one of them
