THE PERFECT TEN

Author(s): 

There's a lot of sex, but very little boundary pushing, in this three-story anthology about the Killaney cousins. Their interconnected tales are enjoyable, if somewhat predictable, and, though the plot is
very light, the characters are likable.

Diana, Elizabeth and Jeannie Killaney own the shop "Lotions and Potions" in Asheville, N.C., where they've just created their newest scent: Love Potion #10. Soon after, all three women encounter hot, sexy men who make them wonder if the passion they feel is real or merely the result of wearing their latest concoction.

In "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not," shy Diana learns to trust with the help of Damian. Ultra-responsible Elizabeth recovers from a past betrayal in "Movie Magic," thanks to the persistence of Enrique. And beautiful but brainy Jeannie gets her romantic wishes fulfilled by Nathan in "I Dream of Jeannie." (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Jan., 272 pp., $14.00)
