Okay--I've died and gone to heaven. ALL THREE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS TOGETHER IN ONE BOOK!!! What more could a girl want in the middle of a Montana winter. HEAT!! and more HEAT!! and this book delivers!! Alpha-males who think they can do anything (and are usually right). Alpha-females who can take care of themselves (and usually do). Add steamy sex and three good stories and you have this book. Most anthologies usually have one or two stories I don't like. Not this one. Loved them all. Thanks Ladies and thanks Penguin for publishing this--lets do it again REAL SOON!!!

Ms. Adair is headliner for one good anthology that fans of the romantic suspense genre will not want to miss. She is joined by Jill Shalvis and Julie Elizabeth Leto two ladies that can indeed hold their own when it comes to penning romantic yet suspenseful stories. Although these are short stories the reader will not be left feeling short changed.

In "Playing for Keeps" Danica Cross and Jon Raven are given a second chance at love. Dani is a flight attendant and the plane that she is on crashes. It turns out that the plane was sabotaged in order to kill the President of South America's child and cabinet that were passengers as well. The last thing that Dani thinks of when the plane crashes is of her soon to be ex-husband. Jon Raven is scared to death when he finds out that Dani has been in a plane crash. He moves heaven and earth to find her and tracks her back down to South America where she has been taken by the Presidents people. Why has she been secreted out of the United States, and why is Jon being kept from her? The answers are almost more than they want to hear but while they are on the run they realize that they still love each other and that this is not going to end with a divorce.

In "Nothing to Loose" Jade is an antiques dealer that has tangled with the wrong man. He has stolen from her and he has killed in the past. Her life is about to cross with Will Malone. Tomas has killed his sister Wendy and this DEA agent has spent the last six months tracking this killer. He will get justice. When he follows him to Jade's doorstep he is not prepared for what happens next. Before he knows it, they are an unlikely pair working together. What he doesn't expect is the play acting turning real. Will they be able to catch a killer and still find a happy ending?

In "Playing for Keeps" by Cherry Adair, flight attendant Danica and a young boy are the only survivors of a plane crash. She feels very lucky until she's whisked off to a foreign country and kept a virtual prisoner. Fortunately, her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Jon is the kind of guy who won't take no for an answer, and the two of them team up to solve the mystery and escape.

In "Nothing to Lose" by Jill Shalvis, a con man and killer brings together antiques dealer Jade and DEA agent Will. The two of them team up to find the man who killed Will's sister and victimized Jade.

In "Dare to Desire" by Julie Elizabeth Leto, agents and former lovers Macy and Dante from rival intelligence agencies are both after information hidden in a house. Dante got there first, but needs Macy's expertise to find the information, so he trades her access to the house in exchange for access to her.

The Good:

Romantic suspense in an anthology.

All the stories also involve reunited lovers, one of my favorite sub-categories of romance.

"Playing for Keeps" is exciting, believable, and emotional.

The Bad:

"Nothing to Lose" is simply too short to be effective. I never got invested in the characters.

"Dare to Desire" stretched my credulity a bit too far. The only reason for the developments in the plot were to provide an excuse for sex scenes, and I really had a problem with a "hero" who's supposedly saving the world, but won't do it unless the heroine will have sex with him.

The Verdict:

I gave Adair's story 4 stars, but the other two stories really weren't up to par. For a quick, steamy read that you don't want to think about too much, it's okay.
