In this mixed bag of BDSM stories, each tale is better than the last. The interactions are not too intense, but are surprisingly satisfying. The gem of this trio is by Harper, who presents a fast-paced novella that begs for a follow-up. Here’s hoping Harper’s three characters will appear on the page again soon.

In “Stark Pleasure,” by Taylor, virginal co-ed Alice is tapped to enter Tristan Stark’s sensual world of bondage after posing for a local artist. In “Ruby’s Awakening,” by Rainey, being in control of her relationships is critical for Ruby’s peace of mind. Her gorgeous risk-taking neighbor Drake has been intrigued since he moved in, and when an opportunity with her presents itself, he jumps in. In “Runa’s High,” by Harper, the psychological state of track star Runa is challenged by Jeff and Ken. The “therapy” that the two devise for her is intense and highly erotic.
