All three of these stories deliver -- in terms of characterization and, especially, sensuality. The glamorous settings and witty banter between the well-matched pairs are a bonus.
In Landis' "Trouble in Paradise," Carrie Evans heads to Hawaii to arrange her wedding to Kurt. But an in-flight magazine article about symbols and omens makes her wonder if her lost luggage, an AWOL wedding planner and a freak storm are bad signs.
In Leigh's "Biting the Apple," Trish Avalon wins a dream wedding in New York, but she's single. She asks old boyfriend Mark to be her pretend groom so that she can use the trip to land a newspaper job in the city. Soon Trish is questioning everything -- including her feelings for Mark.
In Braun's "A Venetian Affair," Dayle Alexander and Max Kinnick are partners in a successful import-export firm. Dayle's engaged but not sure her fiance is right for her. Then she takes a business trip to Venice with charming womanizer Max, and everything changes. (HARLEQUIN, Jun., 352 pp., $5.99)
