NAUGHTY BITS 3
This anthology is like a box of chocolates — there’s something tasty for everyone — with stories peopled with lords, virgins and pirates. Popular fantasies with new twists and emotional depth make the collection of nine tales sexy-rrific.
Highlights of Naughty Bits 3 include James’ “Devoured,” in which Christine is more than tempted by a proposition from Marco, a mouth-wateringly sexy chef. He wants one night of anything-goes sex and he’ll give her a $5-million house. She’s not interested in the money, just in fulfilling her every fantasy. The magical “Pirate’s Tale” by D’Otare features convent-raised Gertrude, who is offered in marriage to a captivating sea captain. She sees it as her chance to escape. But she’s staying put after the captain gives her the key to a room that reveals erotic secrets and sensual possibilities. Elle and Dan in Hart’s “Reason Enough” have a hot and passionate marriage. Then Dan brings up the subject of having a baby, but Elle is unsure about this huge step. As their lovemaking continues to sizzle, her heart is filled to the brim with love, making her decision easy.
