Strangers in the nightFour authors show that taking a gamble on love with a stranger pays a jackpot in the provocative novella collection, Naughty, Naughty. The bad boy is tamed in each of these stories. In A Tempting Wager, by Susan Johnson, stolen passions are heightened with the ever-present threat posed by Napoleon's conquest. In Adrianne Lee's Winner Takes All, a dying woman believes she has only one chance to experience her full sensuality with a Montana cowboy with a bad rep. Strangers in the Night, Leandra Logan's novella noir, gives a private eye more of an eyeful than he bargains for. In Anne Marie Winston's The Maine Attraction two strangers on the ocean shore share one night that just might last a lifetime.
