While my name is first on the list of contributors, I've just one story among the many in this anthology and have not personally met any of the other authors.
As with Tortured Hearts volumes 1 and 2, the stories are varied in subject and style but each races along with an account of the drastic actions which love leads the protagonists to take. Sometimes the reader might develop a suspicion about the eventual outcome, sometimes not, but either way each author brings satisfaction at the end of the story, even though it may cause a sharp intake of breath. Interest is maintained throughout by changes of style, pace and setting, as well as methods for the dreaded deed.
The book is a most entertaining read, and although thankfully most of us wouldn't take these paths ourselves, we are carried along with the stories and easily accept the outcomes. So for readers who appreciate how complex love can be, and who like action, fear, revenge, murder and a dash of mystery in their stories, I 'heartily' recommend this collection.

OK, first up, I`ve got a story in there, so hands up, and all that.
I do have to comment though, with regard to my fellow authors and their excellent prose. In this volume we have three new writers who have added depth and quality to the series, so stand up and take a bow, Robin, Megan and Jac. In my opinion the work produced gets better, with each release and the old hands keep coming up trumps with high standard material that begs to be read.
So take a look, you will not regret it.
