**** "Driven" by LuAnn McLane. Heh. Did this make anyone else think of Jenny Crusie & Bob Mayer? (though the main things didn't fit--they're not in a romance, he approached her for a collaboration; the details do: Maui, romantic comedy, tough guy) Cute story, though.
***½ "What Happens in Vegas" by Patricia Ryan. The 3½ stars is deceptive. The first half of the story is ho-hum dull. Some bimbo-y chick acting dumb and some dull guy playing blackjack. Then we find out that the sleazebag owner of the casino wants her to find out how the dull guy keeps winning, but I still don't care. Then... there's a VERY hot sex scene. An example for the next time there's a conversation about taking sex scenes out of context. This one works out of context--it probably works BETTER out of context, because I really didn't care at all about these characters. And no, it's not in the details, it's in the way she writes about the details. *sigh* I wish more authors understood that. So maybe 2½ stars for the story itself, but that sex scene bumped it up a star.
**** "Brushstrokes" by Toni Blake. Cute story. Matchmaking grandma sets up artist granddaughter with commitment-phobic bar owner by getting him to hire her to paint his bar. She ends up painting angels on his ceiling, & he keeps trying to tell her to quit, but he can't bring himself to. Points for inventiveness in the sex scenes. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451216059, Paperback)

After a hard day's work, falling in love-or lust- is the only way to unwind.

From three of today's hottest romance authors-an anthology of sizzling stories about the trials and tribulations that occur when professions and passions collide.

In Driven, LuAnn McLane tells the story of a hard-boiled mystery author who has writer's block when it comes to sex scenes-and gets paired with a sassy romantic comedy author to come up with a very happy ending...Patricia Ryan's What Happens in Vegas follows a gambler on a hot streak and the beautiful woman who's out to discover his winning secrets when they bet everything on desire...And in Brushstrokes, Toni Blake delivers with a down-on-her-luck artist who takes a job painting a tavern, only to find all the inspiration she needs in the tavern's picturesque owner.
