TEXTING ALL HEARTS
by Various Authors
Texting All Hearts—Boxed Set
Seven Multi-Published Authors
What do rodeos, otherworldly encounters, exotic dancers, bondage, hot sex, refound love, and time travel have in common? Besides romantic, edge of your seat fun and intrigue, they all evolve from a single text. Seven multi-genre novellas that promise to heat your nights and warm your hearts.
Her Cowboy Dom
Tate Hardy’s best friend leaves him all his cattle if he spends thirty days on a ranch with a woman he wants but can’t have. Jess is a nice girl, and Tate doesn’t do nice. Jessica Campbell needs her brother’s cattle as collateral for a loan. To get rid of the sexy bull rider, she suggests he teach her about D/s. When he agrees, Jess gets more than she bargained for from her cowboy Dom.
Drew Mathews cherishes her deceased husband’s lingering spirit. When his best friend, Dominic, reveals her late spouse’s dark secrets, Drew’s crushed. She turns to Dominic and neighbors for support and stumbles into a passionate love affair and a slew of bizarre commonalities restricted to the residents of Midnight Road. As mysteries unfold, inalterable conditions threaten her romantic relationship, her life, and possibly, the world.
A Lethal Affair
With a rumored serial killer targeting exotic dancers, Daisy Piper is more than a little worried when her co-worker goes missing. Her concern escalates when a guy she’s never met shows up claiming her friend stole his laptop. A mild-mannered computer whiz on the surface, Miles Garton is a total contrast from the streetwise Daisy. But he’s on a mission of his own, making the jaded stripper suspicious. Fighting each other, a mutual attraction, and the truth, they team up to find the missing woman.
Texas Tallulah Taylor never thought she’d be turned on by a dirty text from a stranger, one that leads to a delicious sexting session with her best friend. Will Sanderson never thought the love of his life would see him as anything but a friend. Maybe sexting Texas will show her this cowboy aims to give her the ride of her life…for the rest of her life.
The Dom Delivers
He’s a Dominant, and she’s as vanilla as they come…
Designer Jenna Jaynes enjoys the safe bubble of her creative world, until her delivery guy bursts through and steals her heart. CFO Aden Kelley’s regimented world is thrown into chaos when a spitfire dressmaker captures his soul. Will the Dom convince vanilla to swirl?
Sarah Lawson’s fiancé Logan Miller died in Afghanistan. She receives a text from Brandon Perdue, one of his war buddies, who wants to meet and deliver a message from Logan. Physically and emotionally scarred, Brandon values Sarah’s friendship. Sarah wants their relationship to deepen, but he fears she’s projecting her feelings for Logan on to him.
Pale With Color
Susan JP Owens
Cheyenne Clark doubts Captain Joseph Westerly’s beliefs about reincarnation, but a twenty-first century gal stuck in1862, during the Battle of Gettysburg, creates a new perception about philosophies and physics. After Joseph’s death, Cheyenne returns to her time period and anticipates his rebirth. Will Joseph find her?
A Lethal Affair
“The scenario is baffling.” Miles sniffled, using his sleeve to rub the wetness from his face. “God, this doesn’t go away. Must be lethal.” He inhaled a deep breath as he rose to his feet. “I’m sorry, but I can’t stand this anymore.” He quickly unbuttoned his oxford and wrangled the shirt from his torso.
Daisy instantly became wide awake. Her chin raised to allow herself the pleasure of taking him in.
Broad, powerful shoulders, abdomen corrugated with leanness, arms, hard and steely. He turned to lay his shirt across the arm of the sofa, giving her a full view of the muscled planes on his back. A tiny flutter quivered across her tummy as a sudden burst of need speared through her. She dropped her gaze. How had she missed this? The shirt’s pinkness threw her off. But here he was, right in front of her. Nerdiness transformed into pure male.
7 short stories, linked only by they start with a single text. A little bit of everything, time travel, ghosts, other worldly beings, cowboys, Dom, best friends to lovers, all with steam and story! They are all short, thats why I’ve filed the set on the short reads shelf, and they could all be hangover cures too. Certainly worked for me.
2 stories I did not finish, 3 were solid 3 stars, and the other two shone way above the rest.
Sexting Texas. Darah Lace 4.5 fangs
Texas gets a dirty text from an unknown number and it sparks something inside of WIll that pushes him. It also sparks a steamy sexting session that was awesome to read! Will takes the opportunity handed to him, and moves to get closer to the love of his life, much closer.
A delicious little tale of best friends to lovers. Its short but to the point, and it was I thought, the best of all seven. I’ve not read anything by Darah Lace before, but I will certainly look out for more by her.
The Dom Delivers. Nese Lane 4 fangs
Ayden pretends to be the delivery man to Jenna’s wedding dress business, just to get close to her. Jenna doesn’t know it, but she has all the tells of a perfect submissive, HIS perfect submissive. AndAyden is just the Dom, just the man to teach her.
Cute, following a tried and tested pattern, but still a very good read. I really liked that there were no major falls, breaks up/makes upx.
Again, Nese Lane is new to me, and I should like to read something longer by this author.
All in all, a 4 fangs box set, with 2 shiners and some not so shiney ones. I’ve never read a box set, along any theme, that I loved them all, so don’t feel bad!
