I like that Harlequin's Blaze line has started printing erotic romantic comedies, because, hey, like the "Blush" slogan says: "sex doesn't have to be serious."

The way sex was approached in this book was different, to say the least. Ava, the heroine, is an anthropologist who's written a book on sex in various cultures. Ian, the hero, is a photojournalist who's been sent to ghost write the book since Ava's writing is, well, a bit bland. So throughout the entire book, Ava and Ian are discussing (and reenacting) various practices from different cultures. Now, I have to confess, I took an anthro class as an undergrad on human sexuality, and it was by far one of the most interesting courses I took in college. So all these different stories totally captivated me.

Ava's naivete did irk me a little bit, but it was understandable considering she'd barely spent any time in America while growing up (her parents were archaeologists, so while she got lots of experience traveling the world and observing other cultures, she never really got a chance to observe her own). Overall, though, this was an enjoyable read, fun and funny. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373793820, Mass Market Paperback)

Who are they to argue with biology?

Subject A, photojournalist Ian Cole, is sent to ghostwrite a book on sex in various cultures. Instead of finding a white-haired professor, he is greeted by Subject B, anthropologist Ava Simms, wearing only a teeny loincloth and body paint....

Observations...

Sexual energy between subjects increases exponentially. Note the male's quickened breathing and barely restrained urge to do lusty and inappropriate things.

The female, in turn, decides to demonstrate her extensive knowledge of seduction, play and ritual...claiming it's "research." The results? Neither Subject A nor B want the study to end....
