Stone's anthology contains books
one and two of the author's Hot in the Saddle series. The stories are quirky, fun and very hot, and the characters are sympathetic and well developed. Hopefully, we'll get to see more of the Russell brothers soon.

Fleeing her abusive husband, Ana Stillwater gets into a car crash with Chase Hawks. Chase fears Ana will sue him, so he makes her a deal that helps them both in "Chase 'n' Ana." As their relationship grows, Chase is surprised when Ana claims to be a witch. When her husband finds her, it's up to Chase to save her. "Molding Clay" has Clay Russell helping to get Rusty Blackhawk's ranch back on its feet. Rusty is a witch, and she'll need all her magic to save the ranch, her attraction to Clay and their lives.
