Two short stories and both are erotic. One is a standalone while the other is in the Bound Hearts erotica series.
“Surrender” (Bound Hearts, 1; also found in Ties That Bind)
“Fyre Brand” reads like a paranormal-romance B movie and is not written well, and yet I am intrigued enough to want to know if it’s part of a series. One thing you can say for Leigh is that she may be all about the sex, but she does write a story to hold it together.
The Psychic Guardians are determined to control or put down people with psychic power to prevent a repeat of Tyre’s reign of terror. One way to control them is to bond them with sex.
“Surrender” starts the Bound Hearts series through which runs a theme of threesomes which focus on the woman’s pleasure. The couple focus in this one is on Tess Delacourte and Cole Andrews with Jesse Wyman as their third. It’s very soap opera-y and not one of my favorites; I suspect because Tess has such a wimpy attitude. Her mother, Ella Delacourte, is so incredibly uptight and vicious that I just wanna smack her; she’ll get hers in “Submission“.
The Cover and Title
The cover does quickly inform that this has an erotic theme: a nude blonde with huge breasts, wearing cuff-like bracelets and a wide black ribbon around her neck, has one hand cupping a breast and she’s bent over with a naked man behind her, his lips kissing her tilted up forehead.
The title is a nod to the two different stories with a Surrender to… the Fire.
