The heat is on...
Five bestselling authors have come together to bring you five smoking hot, never before seen novellas that will test the limits of your internal thermostat.

What could be hotter than sizzling firefighters, sultry cowboys, sexy bodyguards and scorching bad boys?Nothing, that's what. It doesn't get much hotter than this!

From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Olivia Cunning…
One Starry Night...
In high school, Jake was the bad boy who made Michelle burn with desire, took what he wanted from her body, and broke her heart. In hindsight, Michelle never should have gotten tangled up with the aspiring guitarist in the first place. In high school, Devlin was a sweet, shy geek who’d had a crush on her, but when he’d found the courage to ask her to Prom, she’d turned him down flat. In hindsight, she should have worried more about the quality of the boy than her reputation with the popular crowd. But this isn’t high school anymore. At her ten year class reunion, Michelle finds her once popular crowd lacking, but finds both the man who broke her heart and the one she once rejected irresistibly sexy. She wants them. Both of them. And they want her any way—every way—they can have her. Can she resist either man? Does she even want to try?


New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other. Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.


New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn gets it hot in here with SHAMELESS. It's a vacation Meredith Taylor will never forget. A sunny beach, good friends and good times. But when she overhears a couple having a passionate interlude on the balcony above her one night, she can't get the man's sultry voice out of her mind. Especially when she figures out exactly who that man is...
Cameron Moore always had an eye on his best friend's little sister but considered her strictly off limits, choosing to satisfy his lust elsewhere. Now Meri seems to want to annihilate every wall Cam's put up against her. The beach is hot, the drinks are cold, Meredith is irresistible, and something has to give. Will it only be the walls between them, or their hearts as well?


New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby brings you PLAYING WITH FIRE, a menage novella. Bailey Whitworth is a charity event organizer and a woman exploring her sexuality. Kevin Welling and Gray McDermitt are firefighters and best friends who share everything. Bailey always knew her sexual appetites were "different", but she had no idea that she could fall in love with two men at once. What will she do when she has to choose between them? Or will she have to choose at all?

From USA Today bestselling author, Lainey Reese comes Guarding Nadia.
When Nadia Dixon walked into the offices of CJ Investigations, the last thing she expected to find were men who looked more like GQ models than bodyguards. It was desperation that brought her to their door however and she prayed that the two sex gods were more than just pretty faces.
Caleb and Jonas had started their security firm together after leaving the Secret Service. They had the lethal skill and training to safeguard.




The only story I've had a chance to read so far is Playing with Fire by Kristen Proby and let me tell you, this story was incredibly hot and romantic all at the same time.  I started with Kristen's novella because I haven't had a chance to read any of her other books yet and I wanted a taste of what I can expect.  You better believe I'll be opening up Come Away with Me soon!  

Playing with Fire follows Bailey, Kevin and Grey as they embark on a wild threesome filled weekend.  Bailey is an event planner.  She's chosen this profession instead of continuing with her law degree as a way to thumb her nose at her parents.  She's never really had anyone around that loves her.  She grew up with nannies and house keepers as family instead of a nurturing mother and father.  Grey and Kevin have been friends since they were children, they turned to one another when they had nobody else.  They have been inseparable so when one decided he was going to become a Firefighter, the other signed up because you can't let your best friend go into dangerous situations alone.  Now don't get this confused for hearts and flowers love, these two love one another but in a brotherly sort of way.  There are no M/M interactions here.  But what they do bring to the table for Bailey is a love that she's never known and will fulfill every deep seeded desire she has ever had.   

If you are a fan of hot, off the charts scorching sex scenes that depict a threesome between two smokin' hot men and a gorgeous woman (which obviously we are here), then this book is right up your alley.  I'll be starting Boots Optional by Nicole Edwards here shortly!  I can't wait to read the other stories by the author's that I have not read before as well.  That's the wonderful thing about Anthologies you get to sample a little of everything and meet new Authors and make all new sets of friends to read about for years to come!


I have read several books from Kristen Proby, and every book that Nicole Edwards has released.  I have not read anything from Laniney Reese, Cherrie Lynn, or Olivia Cunning.  After reading this set of short stories, I will definitely be purchasing other works by these authors as well.

Now if you were to ask me which short story I liked the best, well I would have to say probably Nicole Edwards Boots Optional, but a close second would be One Starry Night by Olivia Cunning.  The hot and sexy threesome's between Olivia's three Michelle, Devlin, and Jake, with hot and sexy business man, and the sexy and hot musician will heat you up.  Add in the next story Boots Optional by Nicole Edwards with her uber hot and sexy cowboys is guaranteed to know your socks or boots so to say right off.  When your are met with the hot blooded cowboys that are chasing after Gracie, you will find yourself dreaming of Lane and Grant.  I was like noooo this can't be the end of the story.. but the good news it we will be able to get more from Nic in her new series Dead Heat Ranch coming soon.

Now on to a bit about the others....  Shameless by Cherrie Lynn will grab ahold and pull your attention in right from the start.  She heats you up with a glimpse into how hot the sex can be with Cam right out of the gates.  It is enough to make Meri's fantasy's even that much more heated and her longing even more.  The only issue here is her brother is best friends with Cam and she is afraid of how he will take her feelings for his best friends, and she wonders since she has know Cam sense she was a little girl if the feelings run mutual between them.  Knowing that Cherrie Lynn is know for her sheet scorching tales, you won't be disappointed for sure.  Now for Kristen Proby's part in keeping your hormones reved up, need I say more, I think Jennifer gave us a great view on that part of our journey through the book.

Last but most definitely not least is Lainey Reese's Guarding Nadia.  This one is a bit on the mystery side of things because Nadia approaches Caleb needing protection from a fan stalking her.  As she begins telling him about the romance novels that she writes, containing BDSM, he is instantly hit with a small thought about what he and his partner Jonas do at the BDSM club they are members of.  Knowing his thoughts are heading in the wrong direction he refocuses on what Nadia is telling him about her threats.  As time goes by and the threats seem to get more serious, she is introduced to Jonas.  At this time she realizes that both men are beyond sexy.  Jonas is also effected by Nadia as much as Caleb was.  With their first priority her safety, they soon find themselves in a position we can all see where it is head....

So as I was saying earlier who doesn't want to kick off their summer with out reading this steamy book with lots of alpha males for us to dream about.  I know I am glad that I started this book out by the water, because trust me, there were several points when I needed a good "cool down" as my fantasies tended to run away to the bedroom.  Don't let this hot sexy and all to steamy read slip through your fingers.





From Playing with Fire by Kristen Proby
“You don’t have to dry my hair,” I murmur and watch in the mirror as Gray wields the blow dryer, pulling his fingers rhythmically through my long blonde strands, watching the hair as it falls down my back. Rather than make the bed, Kevin followed us into the bathroom and the three of us had quite a lot of fun in their enormous shower.

We’re all squeaky clean and dry, thanks to them. Kevin is making the bed while Gray blows my hair dry.

“Indulge me,” he replies with a soft smile, meeting my eyes in the mirror. It’s not a hardship to watch him move, that’s for sure. The man’s body is something to look at.

“How often do you work out?” My eyes are pinned to his hip. He’s turned so his side is facing the mirror. Watching him move is mesmerizing.

He grins softly and lowers his lips to my ear. “Every day,” he whispers and kisses my cheek then gets back to work on my hair. “How about you?”

I raise an eyebrow and let my eyes roam over my own body in the mirror. I’m naked, but comfortable with the hot air blowing on me. It’s making me relaxed and sleepy after such a long day with the climb and the rigorous sex with two very enthusiastic men. I’m not in particularly good shape. I’m slender, but not firm. I don’t work out on a regular basis.

“I don’t remember the last time I worked out,” I reply honestly and without embarrassment. “Who has time?”

He laughs and nods as he smooths his hand down my hair. “You’re in great shape, Bailey.”

“I’m not complaining. I could stand to get on a treadmill now and again, but I’m on my feet a lot for work, so it all comes out in the wash.” I shrug and watch as he sets the dryer aside and wraps his arms around my waist from behind, his eyes locked with mine in the mirror.

“Are you tired?” he asks.

“Exhausted. You must be too.”

He nods and kisses my hair. These men are forever touching and kissing me. I haven’t had this much affection in… well, ever.

Just then my stomach growls loudly, making us laugh.

“I guess I’m hungry too.”

“Then we’d better feed you. Come on.”







Interview with Kristen Proby

1) When writing about Natalie in Come Away With Me what or how did you come up with her tattoo's?

Nat's tattoos were a surprise to me. I discovered them along with Luke in the scene under the oak tree.


2) Do your characters "speak" or "tell" you how they want their stories to go?

The characters don't dictate the story, but I do hear their voices and their distinct personalities in my head.


3) What has been the most difficult scene for you to write out of all your books?
That scene is in the upcoming book, Breathe With Me. I can't talk too much about it because it will be a big spoiler.


4) What does your husband think of you writing about all these hot and sexy men?

My husband is very supportive.

5) Do you still get nervous on the day you release a new book?
Yes! I think the day I stop being nervous is the day I should get out of the business. It's always exciting and special.

6) Is your novella in Some Like It Hot the start of a new series like some of your co-writers? 

No, this story features characters that we met in the most recent installment of the With Me In Seattle Series, Tied With Me. This is Bailey's story.
