Unfortunately, the headlining author Suzanne Forster delivers the weakest story in this anthology. "Unbuttoning Emmalina" delivers us two interesting people in the form of Jeff and Emmalina, but then fails to really deal with the realities of their personalities. Em is touted as a "Victorian lady," but we see little of it in her reactions to Jeff and life around Jeff, and the fears resulting from her long-ago problems with her mother aren't resolved at all.
I've been enjoying the saga of the Winston brothers, and "Tangled Images" is no exception. I really enjoyed reading about Mack, maybe even more than the "C" brother stories. Foster manages to deliver well-developed characters and a decently-resolved plot in a short amount of time. This installment isn't as funny as previous installments, but it's still very well-done.
My major criticism of "Sinderella" and "Leather and Lace" is that the stories had premises that were too similar. If I had compiled this anthology, I would have separated these stories to ensure they didn't blur together.
That said, I really enjoyed "Sinderella," probably the most of any story in this anthology. I always appreciate stories where good friends become lovers, and this story was a well-written example of that sub-genre. The characters were appealing, and their relationship well-developed. I understood and appreciated Frankie's reasons for approaching Connor "in costume," and found her predicament with the mask very amusing.
"Leather and Lace" is again one of the weaker installments in this collection.Read more ›
Although I enjoyed the relationships each author gave to their romantic characters, I found the love scenes were the strongest ever; some were so detailed that I found myself skipping pages, because they were just too much for me. So, if you like your romances unambiguous, racy and direct you will like SINFUL because these ladies know how to write it.
Unbuttoning Emmalina by Suzanne Forster (Back from Hot Chocolate) Jeff Winston is a good friend of Max and Abigail (Forster's characters from HOT CHOCOLATE). Max lost the trophy to Jeff when he gave up bachelorhood to marry Abigail. Jeff wonders if he can hold on to it when he meets Emmalina. Emmalina is Victorian in every way, her thoughts, attitude, clothes and life style.
Tangled Images by Lori Foster (Back from Hot Chocolate) If you've been keeping up with Lori Foster's short stories, then you are aware of the 4 brothers who run a bar. Cole and Chase have been tangled, so that leaves Mack and Zane. Mack has a feeling Allison and Sophie are out to get him tangled this time when they ask him to model men's underwear in a catalogue for their shop.
Sincerella by Kimberly Randell Frankie has been crazy about Connor for a long time.Read more ›
Four fantastic short stories led you via the world of fantasies. All four authors had their own way of writing men's fantasies with the magic of lingerie - feathers, leathers, laces, masks, etc. With these erotic elements, this anthology would surely leave you breathless and your blood pressure racing! Sinful wasn't really sinful but a little erotic, funny and interesting. I recommend this book to all readers who love fantasies and daydreaming. After reading through this book, you might consider buying a new set of lingerie for yourself!
