Who doesnt love a fantasy? For that matter, who doesnt have a fantasy? In my latest Temptation, INTIMATE FANTASY, (Book 3 of the Fantasies, Inc. series with Janelle Dension and Carly Phillips), I had the wonderful opportunity to explore romantic fantasies. And what better place to do that than on a tropical island?

Ive always loved larger-than-life heroes, and Tony Moretti is exactly that. A former fireman, wounded in the line of duty, hes visiting Fantasies, Inc. to try to heal his mental and physical scars.

Spending time with Tony was a fabulous experience for me. I got to play with both the beauty and the beast theme, as well as the theme of a Zorro-type lover. How? Because Tonys got two identities. By day, hes Tony. But at night, hes given the opportunity to have his life as a hero back, and the island residents know him as Michael, their masked hero. The last thing in the world hes looking for is love, but thats exactly what he finds when he runs into Kyra Cartwright.

Kyras on the island to fulfill a sensuous fantasy of her own, and the mysterious Michael surely fits the bill. But even as shes falling for Michael, her friendship with Tony is growing stronger. When that friendship turns to love, shes faced with a problembecause she certainly cant have both men. Or can she?

I hope you have as much fun reading the stories in this series as we had writing them. The secondary characters of Merrilee and C.J. also hold a special place in my heart. I hope they find one in yours.
