Image of Skin Deep

Three steaming-hot novellas stuffed into one book? Genius! This compilation will be adored by readers, not only for the sex scenes that will have them begging for more, but for the one-of-a-kind plots that accompany the passion. Each heroine has something that holds them back from feeling truly beautiful, but the authors gingerly explain that beauty really does only run skin deep, and their heroes prove it one caress at a time.

In Evers’ “Bedhead,” 26-year-old Michele Peterson has a rare condition and has to wear wigs to hide her baldness. Andrew Calhoun falls in love with her and tries to stop her from getting transplant surgery and convince her that love comes from within. Holt’s “Bedroom Eyes” tells the story of Bridget Reilly, who wears dark glasses to mask her disfigured eyelids. A masquerade ball gives her the chance to put the moves on sexy Navy SEAL Clay Randall. In Connolly’s “Strangers No More,” Whitney Carmichael is trying to land her dream job and believes her face is to blame for her failure. She channels her frustration into anonymous sexual encounters with the one man she shouldn’t pine for. (ELLORA’S CAVE, Aug. 2012, 320 pp., $16.99)
