"Love Sessions" by Thea Devine - Leslie Gordon tells herself that the only reason she's bidding on Hunter Devlin at the charity bachelor auction is because a date with a celebrity like Hunter will make a great article for the magazine she writes for. When their date ends up in a secluded ski resort in St. Moritz, she isn't so sure of her motives any longer...
"Promise Me Pleasure" by Connie Mason - Stood up at the altar, Cara Brooks decides to take her scheduled honeymoon cruise anyway. She soon discovers that getting ditched was to be the best thing that ever happened to her...
This is an entertaining anthology to read on a rainy day or while lying on the beach soaking up the sun. Nothing heavy or complicated. Just a light, enjoyable read.
"A Most Wanted Man" is a good story, with charming characters and a decent little "mystery." The heroine, Leanne, seems almost too good to be true, and the romance was more one of those "meant to be" sort of things than a well-developed relationship. But I appreciated the good writing and appealing characters, and the romance was very sweet (especially with the happily ever after ending).
I thought "Love Sessions" the best of the bunch. Stories where the hero and heroine know one another but are forced to reevaluate themselves and their relationship always appeal to me a lot, and Devine handles the fears of the heroine very well. Both of the characters were well-developed and very charming, and Hunter is a man any woman would want! Devine's writing style was a little out of the ordinary, but still very easy to follow, and if anything the oddity only enhanced the story.
"Promise Me Pleasure" was probably the weakest story, although I began to like it more as it went on. This is a personal preference, but "immediate hot attraction between two incredibly attractive people" stories don't appeal to me as much, especially when they involve international playboys. And the relationship seemed to be initially based too much on sex. That said, Mason does a good job of developing that relationship, and the fantasy of being "romanced" by the world's sexiest man will be enough to pull in many readers. The writing was good, and the characters attractive.
All in all, this is a good summer read. Enjoy!
