Ellora's Cave binds six hot little romances in a variety of genres together in one anthology that will keep you up way past your bedtime!
~The Pirate and the Pussycat By Lacey Alexander~
Last year, Leah was sure she'd met Mr. Right at her friend's Halloween party. But he never called. This year? She's just looking for Mr. Right Now. With that goal in mind, she dresses for maximum impact in the sexiest pussycat getup she can come up with. It isn't long before this kitty cat is claimed by her very own pirate and they swiftly lose themselves in each other without ever leaving the party. Before the night is over, Leah realizes her plan has gone horribly awry and she has lost her heart to Mr. Right Now...
Fans of Lacey Alexander's will more than appreciate her sexy little Halloween story! Having come to expect romances full of some very steamy scenes, her readers will not be disappointed to find the characters in The Pirate and the Pussycat indulge in the sort of adventurous sex that we have come to know and love in Alexander's tales. Their Halloween costumes lend themselves naturally to a little role-playing and the party environment sets the stage perfectly for a little public sex...
In spite of the costumes which disguise them from each other, Leah and her Pirate connect immediately, and the chemistry is undeniable. Leah's worries concerning her unexpected feelings for the mysterious Pirate are understandable, but a delicious little twist to the ending wraps up a very nice Happy ever After for our couple!
~Panther's Pleasure By Cathryn Fox~

THE PIRATE AND THE PUSSYCAT by Lacey Alexander Leah hasn't had the best of luck with men at Tracy's Halloween parties and subsequently she really isn't looking forward to this year's bash. Tracy's suggestion: dress ultra sexy and find a hot guy for a night of `no-strings-attached sex.' Leah's never been good at casual sex but she decides to go along with her friend's idea and dresses as a very naughty pussycat (sans panties) and goes on the prowl for a man dressed in a sexy costume - after all if you're going to do kinky you have to go all the way... nothing short of a hot guy in a hot costume will do. As luck would have it, there's a pirate who's more than willing to play.
Leah's costume induced boldness really won me over with this tale. There's something so `safe' about anonymity that I really couldn't wait to find out how this story would turn out.
PANTHER'S PLEASURE by Cathryn Fox Sash has always been the picture of health. In all her twenty five years not once has she been sick, but the closer the starship Anthon comes to the planet Lannar the worse she feels. Something's definitely not right but how can she know that this planet and the intriguing man she meets will play such a pivotal role in finally giving her a place to feel like she belongs. Never mind that Kade is a shape-shifting panther, and unbeknownst to Sash; she is too. He's a leader amongst his kind and Sash is used to being in control at all times - will she be able to find pleasure in submitting to her mate?
I loved this story! There's something so primitive and innocent in the characters and situations in this story that it just captivated me.Read more ›
Busty, blonde Melissa has finally found a guy who seems to like her personality as much as her body. Short, balding James works with Melissa in a casino and they seem to have something special going. But then some strange troll looking men show up, James starts glowing and the weird men are shooting a blue ray light towards the two. Either Melissa is dreaming or life is getting totally crazy!
"Best of Both Worlds" hits the ground running and doesn't stop for a breath. The fast pace makes for a slightly confusing start but once the players are sorted out it is wild and fun and holds the reader until the last sentence ends.
"Death-Speaker by" Katherine Cross
A gift or a curse allows Dr. Alison Laney to see the last moments of someone's death. Ali is called to a crime scene after the horrific murders of three young women and sets into motion events which lead her to Nathaniel, a man yet not a human. He can answer her questions about herself but Ali may not like the answers to her questions.
Intense, dark and brooding, "Death-Speaker" is a stark look at fallen angels, Nephilim and almost demons. While Ali and Nathaniel are fascinating characters, the explanations that drive the plot aren't completely clear. It is an interesting premise never fully explored.
"Diverted Destiny" by Lynn LaFleur
Heavy traffic and heavy snow prompt Marina Black to take a side road to speed up her drive to her sister Ginger's home. Blinding snow leads Marina to a driveway, then a huge house and to Tain Remington and his assistant Deon. Tain needs to go into town for a drink but Deon feels that Marina will be perfect.Read more ›
