I was lucky enough to win a copy of this HOT *SUPER HOT* book, Edible Delights volume 2, from the lovely Seanna Smythe. And let me tell you, or maybe I should say *warn* you, you'll need to read this one with your significant other not too far away.
This anthology has five stories from five very different authors, but the link between sex and food features prominently. I won't give away any spoilers - just read it if you're looking for something to push the temperature up 10 degrees LOL! Oh - and you might never look at food in quite the same way again.
