Love sometimes requires restraints
Roxie Scott is moonlighting as a dominatrix, trying to survive the financial cost of her divorce. Wearing leather and swinging a whip turned out to be more therapeutic than
HEARTLESS (4.5 stars): Tied with Unforgiven for my favorite story in the anthology, and a great choice to begin the collection. I liked the premise, which could easily have been mishandled, but wasn't. The writing was solid, the pacing good, and I found ...more
Heartless: I'm a big fan of Tiffinie's writing, got hooked on Moosed Up and have read every book since. This wasn't any different, instead of Alaska we have small town America. Sexy dominatrix, old high school flame, and a couple of murders. Add some sexual tension and a Room of Doom and it's ON! Quick read only about 50 pages.
Tantabrobus: Very unique ghost story. Blind professor and newspaper editor lead a group of grad ...more
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 1/2 Over all
As these are all short stories my review of each are going to be short and sweet too ;) Okay so over all these stories were okay for me. 2 of them I really like, one of them I is didnt like at all and the other were kinda in the middle for me.
HEARTLESS: What a way to start off this story collection!!! I have never read any of Tiffinies books yet. But I fell in love with Cam & Roxie!! And really nothing says ...more
The common theme in all of these fascinating short stories is Love Hurts. The stories give readers glimpses of hard knock life events that may or may not eventually lead to romance, but mostly keep the reader entertained with suspense, action and drama. The authors bring true life realities to life in exciting and intriguing ways that keep the readers on their toes ...more

TANTRABOBUS: Loved the characters, and ghost stories always are just awesome.
UNFORGIVEN: Although I didn't like the ending (it broke my ...more
I was excited to get this because Lizbeth Lipperman is one of my favorite authors and her short story, Sweepers, was excellent but I want more. I want to know how MacKenzie deals with the trauma she has endured. I hope there is continuing story in the works.
I also really enjoyed Heartless by Tiffany Helmer. Roxie was quite a character and meeting up again with her crush from high school made for a very interesting story.
Some of the other stories were just not my cup of tea. ...more

I have decided to rate each story as some I loved, some I liked okay and some I could not get into what was going on.
Heartless (4.5 stars) It was a good read, of course being there are eight stories in one book all of them are quick reads. Even though there was not much time to build up to the characters I loved the way Roxie came out of a bad relationship and made herself into a new person. And since I am not into BDSM I am glad ...more

Actually, I don't even think that disclaimer is needed. I read Salt and Water, in particular, and swear I couldn't stop reading the story if I wanted to. Because it was an ARC, it has a couple of little things, but nothing that detracted from enjoying the story.
Charlie has a way of using words as an artist uses the mix of paints, thumb and apron to invoke stark imagery, smudged with just the right amount of dark and foreboding and finely worked ...more
The rest of the stories were ok. The last one, The True Love of Sherry Papers was a little ...more
All in all it was a great group of authors and thier stories.
I got this book for Fury of Fate by Coreene Callahan. Which was a GREAT story! I love the Dragonkind males and can't wait for Venom to come out!
With the mix of stories, some were good, some were bad.
