LUSCIOUS by Lori Foster. When Bethany Churchill moves in with her twin sister, Marci, the last thing she expects to find is a man who is interested in her. Not her gorgeous, self-assured, confident sister, but her. SWAT officer/landlord Lucius Ryder, also known as "Luscious" to the all-women tenants in his apartment building, wants Marci for the magic she can work with his newly acquired, badly abused dog. Marci has the gift of "reading" dogs, understanding what is troubling them and what makes them happy. Lucius wants Bethany strictly for himself and once he sets out to seduce her and prove to her how he feels, she is more confused than ever. Once you throw in the eclectic personalities of the women in the apartment building, Bethany's lack of self-esteem, Lucius's abundance of self-confidence and the dangers of his job, you have a well-rounded story with all of the feel-good qualities that Lori Foster is known for.***** IT'S ABOUT TIME by Erin McCarthy. Prosecuting Attorney Trish Jones has been stood up. Again. After waiting for an hour for her date, she makes her way to Ryan's Pub. There she runs into Caleb Vancouver who, with empty beer bottles covering the bar in front of him, appears to be successfully drowning his sorrows. It turns out that his ex-wife is getting married the next day and he's trying not to think about it. Trish eventually gets him sobered up and they enjoy the rest of the evening in pleasant conversation. After last call Trish drives Caleb home, to her home, and they spend an incredible night together, followed by an incredible morning. When Caleb hears Trish make a flip comment about their relationship to her friends, he doesn't understand why his feelings are hurt when he has only known her a scant number of hours.Read more ›

"Bad Boys of Summer" is the perfect summer read! Yummy hero's, feisty heroines and hot romance all found under one cover. What more could you ask for?

Lori Fosters "Luscious" Bethany Churchill has quit her job, her lousy boyfriend and has returned to her twin sister Marci's in order to figure out exactly what she's going to do next. She's not prepared when Lucius Ryder a member of the SWAT team and her sister's landlord knocks on the door looking for help with his newly adopted dog Hero. The ladies call him "Luscious" for a reason and Bethany is having a hard time remembering why she has no faith in men when Lucius sets her on fire with a kiss. Will Lucius be able to prove that Bethany is the twin he wants and no other will do?

Erin McCarthy "It's About Time" Trish Jones has just been stood up...again. Why does this keep happening to her? Needing a break she goes to her favorite pub. She has no idea that this trip isn't going to end like they normally do...no, this time she is going to meet Caleb Vancouver and this guy is just what she's looking for but will she be smart enough to keep him or will she let him ride off on his Harley?

Amy Garvey "Wish You Were Here" Mackenzie is a photographer who is set on having a beautiful old building renovated and turned into her new studio. When yummy carpenter Leo Dawson shows up she decides she'd rather have him work on her which is really weird because he is not what she normally looks for in a man. But, what she thinks she wants is not going to be what she gets.

This was a steamy, fast-paced read with wonderful contributions from each of these highly talented authors. If you're looking for titles to add to your "must read" summer list...make sure this one's at the top!

Lucious By Lori Foster

Sexy Lawman Lucius Ryder is attracted to his neighbor sister. He thinks that ignoring the object of his attraction is the way to go. But, Surprise! Fate interferes and soon sparks are flying between Bethany and Lucius. Lori's trademark of a sexy fun romance is accomplished once again in this story.

Its about time By Erin McCarthy

Trish Jones has been stood up again. Determined to have a pity me party, she goes to her favorite bar and meets Caleb Vancouver. He is halfway drunk, not her type, or so she though until she decides to "help" him and takes him to her place. The chemistry between them can't be denied and soon things start to heat up. Erin's sexy romance trademark shines again in this story.

Wish you were here By Amy Garvey

Mackenzie Pruitt is determined to restore the house she inherited from her aunt, for that she need a carpenter! Leo Dawson is just what she needs and more. He is one hot package of sexy male/carpenter. Sparks fly when they are in the same room. This is a sexy, tender story that will have you sighing. My first read for Amy Garvey and will not be the last.

In general this is a steamy romance by great authors that once again prove that love can be found anywhere, even with a bad boy!

**This anthology features three excellent storytellers! You won't want to miss it, trust me.

The first story is "Luscious" by Lori Foster. Her stories always have a deep sense of family that I just adore. In addition, her writing tends to have a message about right and wrong and standing up for the little guy. I just love that! This story is no exception. Things start off tense from the get go when Lucius Ryder, SWAT hunk, is stuck in a heart-stopping hostage situation. And you'll let out a great big, "ahhhh" when it's all said and done, and Lucius manages to rescue a hero of a dog.

Unfortunately, he hasn't a clue what to do with the poor little thing. His first thought is to take him to his neighbor, Marci Churchill. She's very good with animals. In fact, one would say she can even connect with them. Lucius isn't really sure about all that, but one thing he is certain of is Marci's twin, Bethany. He wants her. Bad. Now. He's been a good boy and managed to tamp down his wild urges, but now, with Bethany so close, Lucius isn't so inclined to control himself any longer. Unfortunately--for Lucius--Bethany doesn't want anything to do with men anymore. Seems, it's up to Lucius to change her mind on that score. And the way he goes about doing it is just downright yummy!

The second story, "Its About Time" by Erin McCarthy, is true Erin McCarthy style. Her stories always make me laugh and yet they are oh-so steamy too! I haven't read a story by her that I didn't love. This story begins as the heroine, Trish Jones, is stood up. She's feeling just the slightest bit of self-pity. Then, she spots a sexy, brooding man at the other end of the bar wallowing in his own fair share of grief.
