A lot of readers have said that “Wild Things are Free” is not to be missed, and my personal favorites are the study in the colors of a woman’s body in “Smudges” and Lt. Natalie’s battle strategy to win her lady love’s heart in “Unforgettable, That’s What You Are.” The very first story, “Conversations” is available at as an appetizer and I’ve always liked how it captures the way long-term couples can communicate.

Here’s its table of contents:

  • In Every Port: Conversations
  • Touchwood: Satisfaction
  •     & Come Here
  • Paperback Romance: Key of Sea
  • Car Pool: Mechanics
  • Painted Moon: Smudges
  • Wild Things: Wild Things are Free
  • Embrace in Motion: Hot Flash
  •     & The Singing Heart
  • Making Up for Lost Time: Hacksaw Pastry
  • Watermark: The Tapestry
  • Unforgettable: Unforgettable, That’s What You Are
  •      & I Will Go With You
  • Notes: “And Now a Word…or Two”

It’s your chocolate…eat it anyway you want to.
