Two of the three stories are excellent.

This book contains three short stories, described below.

Good story telling for erotica. This was a fun story, very hot and good characters. Janet and Morag go through a mist which takes them back in time to 1052. They are found by two Scottish men who take them and marry them.

Each story in this anthology was hotter than the next. I will be looking for to reading full length novels by Jaid Black and Ruth D Kerce. Perhaps another novella by Sherri King.

Three short stories

Warlord by Jaid Black is your typical girl meets heavily muscled warrior from the past who instantly falls in love with her and wants only to make sweet love to her. She, after the requisite protests, falls for him and wants to be with him. It's an ok story. Quite predictable, but it doesn't have some of the weird things that are in Jaid Black's other stories (i.e. the Trek Mi'Qan series).

Adam 483: Man or Machine? by Ruth D. Kerce

I loved this story! It's the best of the three

The first book, Warlord by Jaid Black, was my favorite of the three stories in the anthology. I must say that I don't read historicals, but this time travel back to 1052 Scottish Highlands really worked for me. I loved Euan. He was such a dominant alpha male. (4 stars)

The second book, Adam 483: Man or Machine?, was pretty good. However, it didn't feel complete. I felt like it was the beginning couple of chapters to a novel. Maybe it is. I have never read anything by Ruth D. Kerce before. (3 star

Warlord - Jaid Black

Two women in current day Scotland walking through an evening fog find themselves transported back to The Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands, to 1052 A.D. as brides of warlords! Loved it!

Adam 483 - Man or Machine - Ruth D. Kerce

Futuristic sci fi story ... Captain Tyree Samou of the Galaxy mineral freighter is assigned a security bot. Or is he a dangerous and outlawed Cyborg? Or human? Or ? I liked this alot, my first read of this author.

Well, believe it or not I liked the first one best. Why is that surprising? Because it's historical in nature....and I'm not so into those as much as some readers...but it was the best! Manliest man of them all. I'm a sucker for a good hero - especially this one because of his reactions of receiving oral sex for the first time - that is so fun!

The second and third stories were pretty decent. Definitely hot sex scenes all steamy and good. Plots were meh, but that's not why I really read erotic no

Ok, so I'm not sure how I did it, but somehow, I downloaded this sucker on my blackberry instead of the book I wanted, but I ended up starting to read this over the lunch hour and was rather surprised. I think my eyes were probably pretty darn big, but it sure was interesting! While this isn't my normal genre, it sure was entertaining and seemed to have something for a lot of people.

So as rating is in there as a rating for the genre, not comparatively of all the books that I read. :

I'm giving this 2.5 stars. There are three stories in this book. They were okay to read. The stories are so short that it's really hard to get into them. The last story I thought was the best because it seemed to have more of a plot therefore more believable. Until I came to the end where the sex got really kinky. I had to google some of the things she was describing. That was a bad idea because it really grossed me out. Plus I really do not like BDSM. I never enjoy reading it. It just makes me ...more

This was as decent trilogy of stories. I really loved the first two stories and would probably have giving this book 5 stars but the third story was a bit slow and predictable. I found myself being confused as the final story really did not flow well. There was some sort of disconnect and the story seemed broken. The lead male seemed hot but that was about it. The story just had no substance.
May 25, 2010 Sally rated it liked it
I quite enjoyed these stories. They're well constructed, have characters that are about as interesting as they can get within the confines of a short story, the stories worked and the sex was explicit, so if you dont' like that be warned.

It was a reasonably fun read but not deep in any way. Not a bad way to while away some hours.

"Bachelorette" By Sherri L. King was about Catherine, a girl who was hurt by her fiance in college and promises she will never be hurt again. Six years later, Catherine meets her match in an ex-CIA bodyguard.
