I think this is a fine collection of 9 short stories. The author shows how much can be accomplished in a short story. Texans are the main characters in each story, and sex is a motif that runs through the stories setting up the conflicts or personal struggles of the characters. I thought the title story, "Texas Heat" and the last and longest story, "The Shadow That Lost Its Man," were particularly good ones.
