Hot Stories for Cold Nights-Joan Elizabeth Lloyd

Hot Stories for Cold Nights
Joan Elizabeth Lloyd
Heat, Oct 5 2010, $15.00
ISBN: 9780425235270

The thirty entries are in fact twenty separate tales as the other ten are additional chapters rather than stand alone short stories. Thus, readers initially will be confused but quickly pick up that “Creating a Bestseller” is followed by “Creating a Bestseller: The Next Chapter” thanks mostly to Jared and Mandy. The longer multiple entries like the Madam’s Brothel" (Options in five parts), “Movie Mania (three parts), and "Friday Night Games" (played in three periods) are the best contributions as the reader has the chance to meet the lead participants outside of just sex. Still even the short shorts (approximately eight pages on an average) are fun to read as accentuated by the opening act in which Pete and Missy capture a Leprechaun who provides lovemaking advice that the Penthouse Magazine guide would say makes for a wonderful cocktail. Ranging in sub-genres and encounters, for the most part, Joan Elizabeth Lloyd provides entertaining erotic Hot Stories for Cold Nights (temperate and hot nights too).
