Men Out of Uniform

Three Novellas of Erotic Surrender

Three sizzling novellas are presented in "Men Out of Uniform: Three Novellas of Erotic Surrender", penned by three fabulous authors in the field, Maya Banks (`Soul Possession'), Karin Tabke (`Wanted') and Sylvia Day (`Taking the Heat'). Each author uses her considerable talent to create a sensual tale featuring hot heroes and the women in their lives that they would go to great lengths to cherish and protect.

`Soul Possession' features Banks' erotic menage scenes that combine two detectives, Rick Broughman & Truitt Cavanaugh and waitress Jessie Callahan whom they have been trying to coax into their bed for weeks. Neither is willing to cede the field to the other and Jessie is a little overwhelmed by the idea that both potent males want to share her. A series of life-altering events catapult her into their arms and almost immediately threatens their relationship as they struggle to balance their undeniable physical attraction to each other with the restrictions imposed by the detectives' profession. A serious threat to Jessie's freedom and life makes them evaluate what they truly mean to each other in and out of the bedroom.

Undercover cop Colin Daniels discovers that a not-so-routine witness escort mission for the Federal Investigative Strike Team has reunited him with a woman from his distant past but there is a leak in his unit that endangers her life. Sophia Gilletti is prepared to destroy her evil husband's empire but his ruthless attempts to destroy her and maim or murder anyone who has helped her convince her that she needs to refuse the assistance of the man who once introduced her to the joys of lovemaking then broke her heart. Their searing attraction for one another is complicated by their past behavior as well as the life-threatening actions of her ruthless husband.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Brian Simmons is trying to protect Layla Creed, the love of his life who ended up in the Witness Protection Program after a series of events that occurred after their painful breakup. She was never able to accept his drive to put himself in harm's way, particularly after he joined the specialized Shadow Stalkers division of the Marshal Service. Their dangerous cross-country trip to allow her to provide key testimony rekindles their relationship but it is likely that they may not achieve success in either if the traitor in his department has his way.

A great trio of scorching and suspenseful reads by three very talented authors. Each deftly demonstrates her facility for penning very hot scenes and telling a coherent and thrilling tale. There are a few minor hiccups necessarily imparted by the limitations of confining the tales to novellas but any of the stories could ideally be expanded to longer versions.
