Pearls: Pearls make the perfect anniversary gift... wherever you wear them... like a negligee, it's all about who's removing them. And how. (BDSM)
The Green Man: A woman. A car. A lonely road... sometimes when things go crash in the night there's more at work than just the weather. (Paranormal, Dark Fantasy)
Jasmine: Be careful what you say to a writer. Especially a mystery writer -- particularly if she happens to have been your childhood sweetheart -- and the woman you dumped two decades ago. Sometimes revenge is a dish best served cold. There's always room for another twist in Jasmine's plots... (Bisexual)
Women Know: Jamie's Turkish lover has asked that she follow his cultures' traditions. But a bikini wax is more than she's willing to have done in her local salon. A visit to his sister seems in order. Her lover assures her "Our women know what to do." And he's right... (Ménage; Bisexual)
Pearls: This story is pretty standard BDSM fare, nothing too radical, and sweet in its own way. This is a good story for those just wadding into the deep and varied world that BDSM encompasses.
The Green Man: This one, while not sporting anything too racy in a sexual sense, is kind of strange in the conclusion. Like Pearls, this one just dabbles in a Dom/sub relationship but does no more then get its proverbial toes wet and would be good for someone just beginning to explore this part of their sexuality.
Jasmine: I think every writer has wanted to use their story to take passive-aggressive revenge on someone from their past. The vast majority of us, however, do not take it this far. Still, this story is fun and my favorite of the four. This one, unlike the two before, this one ventures a bit farther from the vanilla.
Women Know: This story doesn't do anything for me personally. For me at least, having the most sensitive part of my body waxed is not sexy. But to each their own.
