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.
