In Fall into Winter, a provocative collection of erotic novellas, four women seek pleasure in unique ways and are soon swept up in maelstroms of lust, seduction, and obsession. After Ella Jamieson trades self-control for a stolen moment of unbridled passion with a younger man, he surprisingly pursues her, leaving her wondering if he could become more to her than just a boy toy. After Stella Christy's fantasy of a ménage à trois with two men comes true, the rules suddenly change; she finds herself excited and terrified in ways she never imagined possible. Leah Jones isolates herself in a cabin to complete her
latest book, but is soon distracted from her goal when she reunites with a man from her past. Ten years after Elena Lee enjoys a torrid love affair while vacationing in Austria, she is back in historic Salzburg with doubts about why she left.
Knee-deep in steamy affairs, these four women will make choices that eventually lead each of them on an unforgettable sensual journey to ecstasy.
I found Fall Into Winter to be an entertaining collection of four erotic novellas, one whose main connection just happened to be the author writing the stories. Is this a good omen or a bad one, the reader can decide based on his or her own particular taste after reading the book. Personally, I liked these stories quite a bit: some more than the others, but none less than I could have. Appropriately as the first, Seduced by the Blues started the book off with a bang, slowly drawing the reader in and gradually gaining in intensity, increasing tempo to an ultimate crescendo. The characters are vivid and strongly written, the plot fluid and bold. I also loved The Austrian and The Asian quite a bit, finding these characters and plot to be easily identifiable and very sympathetic. There is something so poignant and inspiring about Elena and Stefan's story, I adored their beginning and their ending....
Does a stronger fondness for these two novellas mean that the other two are lacking in some way? I would have to say no, far from it! Stella and Norman in Act Three are funny and quirky; Ms. Baylee had fun with these characters and wants her readers to have fun too. What this attests to is Ms. Baylee's ability to write such vastly different stories rather than cookie cutter versions of the same ones over and over again. Any reader fortunate enough to read Fall Into Winter will be able to enjoy four completely different novellas, not just four different versions of the same story retold by the same author. If this is Eden Baylee's first novel I can't wait to read her next one.
