I have a love-hate relationship with anthologies and boxed sets: I love the idea of a common thread or theme, with the ability to read authors that I have not yet encountered. But, they are more time-consuming to read and write a review for, and time isn’t always something I have in great supply. Additionally, when stories are at most novella length, the authors need to be laser focused in word choice and plot development.
In Hot Summer Nights, the common thread is Dasia Island resort – setting the scenes for several ‘vacation-minded’ encounters in nearly every combination and heat level of romance possible when you don’t add in the paranormal. Ranging in heat level from sweet to erotic, these nine authors bring us to the tropical setting and hot summer escapades of their characters.
