MacAlister's story is typical zaniness. Hero North thinks herself fat (and thankfully she isn't a skinny minny but a 'real' size) and is sent as an expose writer for a London tabloid. Adam Fuller is a private investigator who's been hired to follow a contestant on behalf of a stalker NFL player. But he's had to infiltrate as an approved contestant, an agoraphobic radio sex therapist with the tagline of "And then my nipples exploded". He needs this job b/c his cat, Jesus, is suicidal over his neutering and Adam needs to buy him prosthetic testicles. See? MacAlister!
The second story, Archer's is about a cameraman (Mitch) trying to get an interview with the producer of the show since he's filming a documentary in Africa. He hates recording the confession booths. He during a power outtage meets the only 'committed' couple on the show...well the woman anyway. Her fiance convinced her to come on the show for the prize money and they pitched it as a "testing our love" game to get on the show. This was a good story generally.
Last and least, was Smythe's. Whitney is signed on by her busy-body mom and friends to go and get a life, a man, and oh...meet her father the host of the show who doesn't know Whitney exists. Rand is 5 years widowered. His wife's will took away the life-sized statue of hers (with huge boobs) and her teddy bear if he didn't marry within 5 years of her death. Rand's been staying true to his vows and lonely. The story might have been better had it had an additional 20 pages on it. As it was, it had a cliched end and wrapped too quickly.
Jennifer Archer offer us BREAKING THE RULES, continuing the theme of men and women seeking romance - and a million dollars!!
Claire and her fiancé, James, are contestants. THey are there because of James' not so brilliant idea - thinking the tropical local would bring them closer. Enters Mitch and sudden that plan is out the window. James not only lose a shot at the girl but the big bucks!!
Sheridon Smythe's entry is HOT SHOT, and is another story of contests. This time Whitney and Rand as centre of focus. Whitney, again is not there for romance, but has come in search of the father she never knew. Daddy dearest is the host of the game show and she figures this is a good chance to see daddy up-close and judge him. Rand is there only because of his dead wife's fruitcake will. Since neither are there for romance, they figure they can give each other a cover and keep the other contestants from bothering them. What they did not count on was find love in paradise.
Who wins???? I won't tell...you have to read!!
