Rating 4 1/2 !

Looking for a scrumptious short story? Look no further, Calista Fox’s SIMPLY DECADENT is a great book to give you a quick reading boost.

The heroine and hero, Cass and Seth burn the pages. In a growing relationship, work and real life have intruded. Seth has found that after a year of dating, he has fallen in love with Cass and does not want to lose her to her work. Kidnapping her and forcing her to face their relationship can have dire consequences, but he is willing to take the risk.

Where can I get my own Seth? What a fabulous character, every woman’s perfect dream man. Cass is a great foil for him, and their problems are real and the decisions they have to make: work vs. relationships, are painfully real too. Good sex is important, and these two have a chemistry to die for, but sex is not everything.

I have always found Calista Fox’s books to be exciting, hot, well written, and enjoyable to read. SIMPLY DECADENT falls right into all of the above categories. As a short story, I have never gotten over how much passion, understanding, and depth she can pack in it. I have found few authors who can do it well, and Ms. Fox does it well consistently. I guess when it “ain’t broke, don’t fix it” but I would love to see a full length book written by this author.

Description: Recovering from a personal tragedy, Celia Chandler is ready to get her life back. But the deeply passionate romance she once shared with sexy UK bookstore owner Ben Huntington has long since simmered. Christmas miracles are never to be underestimated, though, and when Celia dares to walk past Ben’s store window on a blustery Christmas Eve, their encounter proves that sparks still fly between them! But are Celia and Ben’s everlasting love and desire for each other enough to help them overcome a loss that destroyed both their worlds?

To My Readers: The human spirit is an amazing thing. We can endure tremendous tragedy with the right people surrounding us, supporting us, and with the will to fight our way past the pain and agony when we’ve done all the grieving we can. In my line of work, I meet a lot of military families that face unbelievable tragedies and hardships, and my heart goes out to each and every one of them. This story isn’t about a Service member—in fact, its set in London. But my inspiration came from one of the many stories I’ve heard recently about losing a child and the toll it takes on the human spirit. I listened to a General speak at a conference about losing his two young sons in Iraq, within a few months of each other, and as I dabbed at my eyes with a tissue—and noticed that big, strapping Marines, soldiers, airmen and sailors were doing the same thing, without shame—I wondered how on earth this man survived such horrific losses. He—and so many like him—are living proof that people can endure anything…with love and support in their lives. His marriage could have easily disintegrated because of these tragedies. I’m happy to report that it didn’t. What saved their relationship and their lives? Love.


One Wish, Calista Fox The Romance Readers Connection says One Wish by Calista Fox is "the one to pick up." "Red Sage publishing and Calista Fox were lucky when they found each other, since they compliment each other so well. I have long enjoyed Ms. Fox’s short stories in the Secrets anthologies....

 ~~~The Romance Readers Connection

Harriet Klausner from Genre Go Round Reviews calls it "an enjoyable short tale." "This is an entertaining fantasy romantic short that works because Jillian, as the prime player holding the story line together, is fully developed. Readers will learn her fears, flaws, and desires especially through her interaction with the genie and with Luke."

~~~Harriet Klausner from Genre Go Round Reviews

For a sizzling hot read with a touch of paranormal, grab yourself a copy of ONE WISH. You just may want your own little genie.

Blue Ribbon Rating: 4.5

HIGH VOLTAGE is an intense story from beginning to end. I was fascinated by the correlation between the lightning and wolf mating. It certainly makes storms much more exciting then I’d ever imagined them to be. Serena may be a ‘city girl’ but she’s basically an innocent young woman who deserves a bit of happiness in her life. Garrett is perfect for her, and let’s face it, he’s sexy as hell, but he survives in two worlds - human and werewolves, accepting that werewolves are fact and not fiction isn’t going to be easy for her.




    In Secret Rendezvous by Calista Fox, McCarthy Portman works for a dating agency, Rendezvous. Despite her success in finding men for the women on her books, McCarthy is single. She’s getting desperate, so she runs her own name through the computer – and is matched with Josh Kensington, the hot bad-boy owner of trendy nightclub The Rage.
McCarthy can’t believe it. Josh is sexier than hell but not her type at all – or is he? Josh’s cousin Cass owns Rendezvous and often says she wishes Josh would settle down with a nice girl. But Josh doesn’t do nice girls – or at least, not until McCarthy crosses his path…
    This is, as McCarthy thinks at one point, ‘shameless, naughty fun’. The good-girl-ensnares-bad-boy plot is always a winning combination for me, and Ms Fox manages this seamlessly and stylishly. I liked both Josh and McCarthy: Josh is super-sexy and honest with his emotions in every way, and McCarthy is sweet and confident, surprising herself when it comes to flirting and seduction. I loved the sense of humour behind this novella – several moments made me giggle. Also, this one had such a great line: The last vestiges of prudence lay scattered at her feet, sexual road kill.
Loved it! 4 and a half flutes.




FOREVER MY LOVE by Calista Fox
Professor Aja Woods soon realizes the erotic dreams she's been having are actually somehow real. The man in her dreams is actually a guardian sent to watch over her—a man who loves her and makes her feel as if she's waited her whole life for him. When Aja discovers that she is actually a witch many centuries old, and a descendent of an ancient gypsy tribe, Aja's life turns upside down. Christian, her guardian angel of sorts, has been sent to help her rediscover her repressed memories. Christian isn't human, either. He's actually a vampire. When things go horribly wrong with the magic and Christian has to save her the only way he knows how, by making her one of his kind, the fates of both worlds hang in the balance. Will Christian and Aja be able to save both worlds and be together?

The SECRETS books are some of my favorite collections and these authors and stories are the reason why.

Rating: 4.5!!!
INTIMATE RENDOZVOUS has a dark quality to it.  A thief lurking in the darkness waiting to kill an unsuspecting victim, sounds like something straight out of a horror movie.  Of course, there has to be a hero and he comes in the hunky form of Dean.  Determined to find out the truth and stop and killer, Dean is the sexy PI in charge of the case.  Cassandra is the owner of Rendezvous and woman who has made her own way for quite some time.  Decadent pleasures and sizzling love scenes are abundant and readers will find themselves caught up in a fascinating whirlwind of action and passion.  Calista Fox is quickly making a name for herself in the erotic romance genre and with sensational tales like this one it’s easy to see why.
