Bardsley's tale is a bit like Fantasy Island, only with much more emphasis on sex. She presents a quintet of loosely connected, interesting stories with a small amount of plot. The stories include menage à trois, anal sex, consensual bondage and BDSM with male doms.
When Claire becomes a participant in a BDSM slave auction, she discovers the real reason her boss wants her to keep working for him in "A Bond Like No Other." In "Seduce Me," Glenna is sent to the Isle of Romance by her mother and chooses Sean as a companion, unaware he works for the resort. (Signet Eclipse, Nov., 288 pp., $14.00)
