Weekend Fling" by Vicki Lewis Thompson. Los Angeles based ad executives Tracy Bingham and Josh Dempsey share the ignominy of having their former spouses leave them so they can be with each other. When they win a love sonnet contest whose prize is a stay at Weekend Pass Resort, Josh and Tracy are excited yet nervous as they boht want each other but fear a sexual relationship could kill their friendship.

"Weekend Meltdown" by Anna DeStefano. Recovering too easily from the end of her engagement, lawyer Felicia Gallo submits a love sonnet that earns her a vacation at Weekend Pass Resort. Deciding to become a bad girl during her stay, Felicia tries to seduce public relations specialist Tony Rossi, who is interested in the real her; not the weekend cat on the prowl.

"Weekend Tigress" by Jade Lee. Kindergarten teacher Liz Song’s love sonnet also wins a trip to Weekend Pass Resort. Her plan is to step out on the wild side leaving behind the prim and proper school teacher role model. Transportation Security Administration Agent Matt Walker wonders who she really is as her persona seems off kilter, but cannot resist running wild with her.

The three contemporary romantic novellas live up to the anthology as each will heat the winter with their entertaining tale. The women are fun to follow as each decides to walk, run, and lie on the wild side for the weekend before returning to their appropriately sedate lifestyles. The men in their lives are also fully developed as they want the wild side to continue with them after the weekend. Simply put fans will enjoy these amusing romps.
