Kenyon's "Turn Up The Heat" is a terrific novella, which shows that polar opposites sometimes attract. In this spicy read, Vince gets to go from bad boy to good boy. In "Hunter's Oath," the imaginative Jaide Black writes a great story.The longest -- and most erotic -- of the three novellas, Cole's "The Warlord Wants Forever" is heartwarming and contains great humor, with equal shares of love, loyalty and danger.

In "Turn Up the Heat," Kenyon introduces rogue Vince Cappelliti to Allison George, as well as to the BAD Agency (Bureau of American Defense). Vince is hiding out on an island where the owner also rents to a society called Sex Camp. Allison and a group of actors are there to play out scenes from the latest novel she's reading. When Vince grabs her, she thinks it's part of the fantasy. However, there is danger along with the passion.

In "Hunter's Oath," Sofia Rowley goes to the Arctic Circle with the heartbreaking job of identifying her brother's remains. Delayed in getting home, she's kidnapped. She then gets auctioned off as a bride to a Viking society where her nearly seven-foot tall "husband" takes great pleasure in making Sofia his for all time.

Finally, Cole's "The Warlord Wants Forever" is the story of Nikolai Wroth, a vampire warlord searching for his bride. There is only one woman for him, one woman who can make his heart beat again. When he meets the elven-like Myst, a battle ensues as Myst has her own agenda. She is the original Valkyrie, and mating with a vampire is not on her to-do list.

These talented authors have gifted readers with very different novellas that make for a pleasant read on a cold winter night. (Feb., 352 pp., $14.00)
