Edwards' beautifully written stories evoke feelings of anticipation as readers wonder how each situation will play out. She knows how to put
her characters in arousing sexual scenes and wring emotion out of them at the same time. The satisfying finale brings back the mysterious bordello that figured prominently in the author's Midnight Confessions.
Matt Crewe and Carrie MacLean come to Perdition House for "Parlor Games." Both have ulterior motives, but the mysterious sex club gives them other ideas. (APHRODISIA, Feb., 304 pp., $12.95)
