Ready to loose her virginity, Shina is chosen to pleasure a Kjartian Emissary and if it does not go well it may mean war. But just how human is he, and will he find pleasure in her services?
These six stories are wonderful glimpses into the minds of six fabulous story-tellers. Even though they are short, each story is complete in passion, romance, and character development. I usually do not like anthologies due to the length of the stories but I found this one very nice. The compilation of these stories gives a little bit of everything and each one is a good night-time story. I am looking forward to checking out other books by these authors.
