SECRETS VOLUME 24: SURRENDER TO SEDUCTION is a whirlwind adventure from one story to the next. As the title says, each story deals with submission of some sort. I can't pick my favorite story out of this one. I fell in love with the characters in each. HOT ON HER HEELS was a ton of fun. I really enjoyed Jack in his leopard print g-string at Vivica's mercy. They're relationship was filled with passion and provocative moments. SHADOW WOLF kind of threw me for a loop. Not usually my type of story, I still found myself amazed by Rae Monet's ability to draw me into this story. I really enjoyed the paranormal elements in this story and of course, the sensual seduction. BAD TO THE BONE really stood out for me. I could relate to Annie completely. She was the nerd in high school and suddenly she re-appears smoking hot. Luke was downright yummy and I agreed whole heartedly with her wanting to seduce him. WAR GOD gave me mixed emotions. It took me a while to decide whether Ares was actually evil or just a man in love. I love stories based on Greek gods, so I really got into this one quickly. Estella and Ares really get their groove on and Estella discovers a new side to herself she never realized existed. Once again, the authors and Red Sage Publishing really did an amazing job of combining these stories to appeal to any reader out there. These are my favorite anthologies because I always know I will never be disappointed with any story that I read from them.
