Four of today's hottest contemporary authors team up to present a collection of racy stories that are sure to fog up your reading glasses. Carrie Alexander starts off with His Body Electric, a younger man, older woman story that finds a divorcee offering shelter to a stranger during a violent lightning storm, and discovering that the mystery man is short circuiting her emotions and her will power in a dangerous way.

The always-readable Susan Donovan tells the story of a stressed out corporate whirlwind who arrives weeks late to a stress-busting retreat. After surviving various mishaps, including nearly being swept away in a flash flood, she's madder than a wet hen, and even more annoyed when she discovers the rustic lodge is under renovation - and that the charming live-in owner of the Bed and Breakfast has a real knack for firing all her hibernating hormones.

Lori Wilde is up next with the story of a young woman who returns to her hometown and finds herself once again face to face with the sexy Scotsman who booted her out of his life and broke her heart. But he has come to realize that he wants Annie back and offers her a chance to go on a treasure hunt, where she will have to find it within herself to either resist or give in to the Siren's Call.

Lora Leigh concludes the collection as she follows a tense confrontation between two former lovers, after the young widow is arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting her husband, thought to have had ties to a powerful drug lord. Agent Joe Merrino vows to prove her innocence - and win back the woman he's never forgotten in For Maggie's Sake.

If you're in the mood for something short and spicy, Real Men Do It Better presents four enjoyable, nicely written, though lightly plotted novellas that are just the thing to heat up a cold February night.
