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.
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.
"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.
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.
