This collection of stories contains multiple worlds about finding just what you need and taking a chance on love. The women in these stories find the strength to move on in life and go after what they truly want. In these stories you are treated to cross dressers and exotic dancers and more. Love will come to you when you least expect it to and these women learn that lesson. Protection can come from oneself or from the one you love and these stories show us that love will always win in the end.
So may stories to tell; a woman hiding as an exotic dancer finds help in a man who is hiding his true self from her. An abused woman finds out just how much her new man can give her, two crossdresser find out that they are not alone and Beltane dancers are dancing for more than just the ritual. Each of the authors has built a world where the woman can find the strength in herself to fight for love.

While these stories are well written I was not immersed in their worlds. They are sweet and full of romance but did not have the emotion or intensity to them that would grab my attention and not let go. I found that they were missing something for me. These are short fast paced reads that give readers a nice romance.  If you are looking for something short and sweet this collection of stories might be for you. 

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
