From the Author

THIS HERO JUST GRABBED ME
Mitch Bohannah, the hero in my story WINNER TAKE ALL, (part of the NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY anthology) just grabbed hold of me and wouldn't let go. I was fascinated by this man who loved women, all women, to the point where he was accused of being addicted to the female sex. Mitch isn't the most handsome man you'd ever meet, but the one with that special, indefinible something that has you taking a second, then a third look, that has you conjuring fantasies of long nights of passion. He lives life in the moment, never considering the future, just assuming it will always be there. Mitch doesn't mean to be NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY. He just can't help himself. The heroine, Carroll Sydney lives only for the future, never stopping to live in the moment. Her life is all about planning and goals. Until one day, she learns she hasn't any future, and she hasn't any past. She's never lived. Never loved. She decides to find the baddest bad boys in Missoula and let them teach her. . .starting with Mitch Bohannah. The trouble is, Mitch has bet everything he owns that he can resist even the headiest temptation. Which one of them will be the winner in this steamy battle of the sexes? I hope you're dying to find out. Adrianne Lee

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Susan Johnson kicks us off with the story of Georgette and Simon. In her typical way she makes the love scenes so hot you end up needing a shower to cool off! The book starts with Georgette and a few friends having a bet to see which of them will get the chance to seduce Simon, Georgette wins (obviously)and propersitions him at a ball the love scenes that follow are very hot and very inspiring. The couple fall in love and end up together forever...........very sweet. Winner Takes All by Adrianne Lee I must admit this is my favourite story about Mitch and Carroll it is about a womaniser who has a bet with his partner that he can keep off sex for two months, if he loses he ends up losing his half of their company. Carroll has been told she is dying and doesn't have long to live so she wants to do all the things she has always been afraid of doing before it's tto late and as you've probably guessed sex is on the top of her list! She makes a list of candidates and Mitch (local playboy) is at the top. He thinks that his partner has paid her to go out to his ranch and "seduce" him. What follows is sometimes funny, sometimes sad but keeps you turning the pages till the very last. This couple are my favourite in the book and on this story alone i would recommend anyone to buy it. Strangers In The Night by Leandra Logan The best way to review this book is to say that Andrea's husband gets exactly what he deserves in the end.............He hires a private detective when his wife leaves him and tries to make her look really bad. They do turn the tables on him in the end and the story is funny and sexy as well. The Maine Attraction by Anne Marie Winston Beau is a very sexy confident man who knows what he wants and when he wants it!Read more ›

A weaker anthology 27 July 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed much of "Rough Around the Edges," so it was with some pleasure that I bought this seemingly-similar anthology of stories. Unfortunately, none of the stories in this volume really stands out as particularly erotic or enjoyable.
In theory, Susan Johnson's style should work well in the novella form. Her mix of history and seemingly-endless imaginative sex by well-endowed characters seems well-fitted for the short form, especially considering her particular style doesn't often seem to call for real emotional development between the characters. In fact, her story in "Rough Around the Edges" was one of the stronger in the volume. But her contribution in this volume seemed lacking. There seemed even less emotional development than is even typical for Johnson, and the history didn't seem all that interesting. A disappointment.
Logan's contribution seems the strongest, with decent character and romantic development mixed in with a nice little "suspense" type plot. The erotic scenes were well-done.
I really liked the hero of Adrianne Lee's story, and although I found the heroine's "quest" a little unrealistic, I enjoyed the story.
Winston's contribution is also very strong. It's the story with the most romantic development between the characters.
All in all, there are better anthologies out there.

These stories are pure escapist fun! 4 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I wanted this book for the story by one of my favorite authors,Susan Johnson, but to my delight I found "Winner Take All" by Adrianne Lee. This story really drew me into the characters. I found Mitch to be a totally believable hero. He struggles to prove an important point to his business partner (along with winning a bet!) and in doing so, matures as a "whole" man rather than a male lead by his "other parts". <g> He finds himself confronted with a special woman who truly touches his heart...but she wants to touch so much more! Talk about FUN conflict! I was so impressed by Ms. Lee's characters I've decided to add her works to my "To Be Read" pile.

This book's stories are neither sexy or interesting 4 Jan 2002
By camille - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In reading this anthology, I realized why I tend to stay away from short stories: even good authors may be unable to create a worthwhile story in relatively few pages. There is definitely a talent and also a honed skill needed to accomplish character development and sufficient plot in the space allotted. I initially picked up this book because the title led me to believe that the stories might be fun, funny, amusing...which they are not in any way -- rather the stories are all quite serious and not what I expected (as others have noted the blurbs on the back cover are untrue.) In one story a woman wants to have sex with a male slut she somehow learned about because she thinks she is dying -- how is that naughty? In another, a woman trying to divorce her scary husband has not-very-exciting sex with a stranger in a bar and we then follow them as they try to extricate her from her marriage. The last story about the woman who has sex for the first time with a man who yelled at her for "encouraging" a near rape while sunbathing fully clothed left me cold. Susan Johnson is the first author in the book and recognizing her name and her usually good stories led me to expect a lot more than is delivered here. I usually enjoy her work, but in this case I actively hated the story almost by the 10th page. Johnson takes what I consider her worst characteristic -- a tendency to be a little too anatomically descriptive -- and makes it into the entire story. This piece consists of a couple engaging in constant unemotional sex without any foreplay, which is not of interest, I would think, to most readers in this genre. More importantly, the sex scenes are BORING! Then she throws in some military/political hooha just to give it some kind of plot. The story would have been much more interesting had it acutally followed the plot listed on the back cover in which debutantes make the bet, rather than bored society matrons in Vienna. Save your money and buy a good Susan Johnson book, rather than this anthology.

3 Stars Just For The Sake Of The Lesser-Known Authors 31 May 2001
By Mayfayre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Although short stories aren't always the truest introduction to an author, I've read enough Susan Johnson to realize that I'm not going to read her anymore. She is the best-known author in this anthology, but her story is the worst. As another reviewer has already pointed out, the book blurb regarding her story is totally deceptive. Her characters are shallow, their relationship unfathomable, and the language used in the sex scenes is jarring, considering the time setting of this story.
The story by Leandra Logan, seemed as though there was too much story trying to be crammed into too few pages, so the story felt choppy to me. The initial sex scene set up as a one-night-stand didn't seem true to the female lead. There were some interesting secondary characters, but the story form is just too short to allow adequate development of that many characters.
I felt that the stories by Adrianne Lee and Anne Marie Winston were the best of the bunch. The characters were better developed, the sexual tension better maintained, and storyline flowed better. I would recommend the book for the sake of these authors. I don't know if they have written anything else, but I'm certainly going to find out.

What a delightful read! 4 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As an avid romance reader, I was delighted by Adrianne Lee's"Winner Take All" in the NAUGHTY, NAUGHTY anthology. Both heroand heroine are truly likable, and the heroine has a zest for life that leaps from the pages. The other stories in the anthology were definitely worth reading as well.
