Three talented authors come together to deliver a trio of action-packed romantic adventures that will leave you dreaming of your own hero! Indeed, I would be more than happy to have any of the heroes in this anthology RESCUE ME!

Individually, each story in RESCUE ME earns a top rating of five. Together, they will more than knock your socks off!

~TROPICAL HEAT by Cherry Adair~

When the woman he loves is kidnapped by a ruthless terrorist, Sam Pelton will do whatever it takes to save Elizabeth. Braving the jungles of Africa and a cadre of villains that would make most men quake in their boots, Sam puts all of his skills as a special ops agent to use in order to rescue her.

Why, oh why have I not read Cherry Adair's work sooner? TROPICAL HEAT was my first taste of this author's talent and left me wanting more!

When we meet Sam and Elizabeth, they are thick in the middle of danger, after dancing around each other romantically for the last year. Well, to be perfectly honest, Elizabeth didn't think she was even on Sam's radar, although he was all she thought about since her divorce.

As it turns out, Sam was just biding his time, but he certainly had plans for the beautiful doctor. Plans that are moved up when he very nearly loses her in a way all too permanent. Sam pulls out all the stops, and shows himself to both Elizabeth and readers as the hero he truly is, leaving us to fall desperately in love with this man, just as Elizabeth does.

~ATLANTA HEAT by Lora Leigh~

Macey March is the most irreverent, troublesome member of his team of Navy SEALs. His antics have earned him a few demotions in rank along the way, and the ire of the Admiral himself.

Rescue with a bit of heat is the theme of this intense and sultry anthology penned by three of the most talented writers of romantic suspense today. Don't miss it!

TROPICAL HEAT by Cherry Adair

Unwittingly kidnapped by terrorists, Dr. Elizabeth Goodall is being held at knifepoint and informed that she is going to reconstruct the face of one of the most wanted men in the world. Being a doctor has its perks but this isn't one of them, especially since Beth is not the world renowned plastic surgeon the criminal thinks she is. Biding her time before she has to perform surgery, Beth convinces her captors to allow her to rest. As she frantically tries to find a way out, rescue comes in the form of Sam Pelton, a counterterrorist operative. He also happens to be the man in love with her.

TROPICAL HEAT by Cherry Adair starts this enticing anthology with a bang. Sam has been in love with Beth ever since he first laid eyes on her, but his honor would not let him hurt Beth's marriage by revealing his desires. Now, when she and her husband have gone their separate ways, Beth is taken from Sam before he can act on his suppressed feelings. Acting as the extremely well trained killer he is, Sam is going to get his woman back.

ATLANTA HEAT by Lora Leigh

Emerson Delaney is the type of woman to get under a man's skin - or as Macey March desires, just simply under him. Desire is a vastly underrated word when it comes to what Macey feels for Ms. Delaney. However, having been threatened by his superior and holding the demotion papers to prove it, Macey knows that Emerson is off limits. That is, until he receives a midnight phone call informing him that Emerson has been kidnapped. All bets are off with this Navy SEAL, and it is his job to get Emerson back.

This book isn't what I'd hoped. Lora Leigh has fans all over the world and generally delivers but Macey's story was a let-down. It was a little rushed and therefore, somewhat disappointing. Macey has been mentioned in other SEALs books so I wanted him to have a great love story, a super romance like his fellow Seals. He didn't get one.

Adair and Gerard, also excellent writers, could've given readers more romance and a few surprises. The only explanation has to be that these three authors were given guidelines for page count parameters or something. This book is worth the price but I can't see it being a favorite if you're truly a fan of Adair, Gerard, and Leigh.

Not a bad anthology. My favorite was Lora Leigh's Atlanta Heat, which I would give 4 stars. The other two stories are solid 3 stars. Of course, Lora Leigh is one of my favorite authors and the reason I picked up this anthology.

I know that its not amazon's fault that the publisher sets the price, but come on! It's $5.97 if you buy the three novellas separately! You would think that they would be cheaper bundled. I don't know about anyone else but I like to keep my 2 bucks. Luckily there is that handy dandy return feature on kindle purchases.

"Tropical Heat":
Small-town MT doctor is abducted by mistake by an African terrorist who wants her to perform facial plastic surgery on him ASAP. She gets rescued by Spec-Ops weapons trainer Hero who's had his eye on her since they 1st met 18 months earlier but wanted to give her sufficient space & time to get over her marriage. Their escape into the wild African jungle is riddled with danger & an explosive sexual chemistry.

This was the best of the 3. It had a steamy yet touching romance & fast-paced action. I really liked how Hero was so secretly obsessed with hard-working & likeable heroine yet was patient & considerate with her needs. He was a yummy alpha hero.

"Atlanta Heat":
Voluptuous heroine is rescued & placed in a safe house by Jr. Lieutenant Hero. They finally get a chance to consummate their previous flirtations & interrupted lovemaking from a few months ago. But heroine holds back due to her abandonment fears. Soon enough their strong physical attraction supercedes her fears. Their future together hinges on apprehending the culprit involved in heroine's kidnapping.

The best parts of this book were the hot sexual tension & sex scenes. I also liked that Hero stayed celibate for 2 years since they met b/c his fantasies were only of heroine & no other woman could substitute for her. What I didn't like as much was heroine's inconsistency. She acted like a sexual tease. She flirted aggressively with Hero yet pulled back when things get too intense for her. There was also an instance when she said that she didn't sleep around yet she didn't have a problem wishing she didn't feel so much for Hero b/c she can engage in casual sex with him like she did with her previous lovers.
