Life is best measured by the moments that take our breath away.

An artist and a poet burn bright and hot after a chance meeting in a moonlight horseback ride on the beach. An empty house is still filled with memories of lust and love. Tearing open a birthday gift takes the wrapper off a woman’s deepest fantasy. A breath-stealing ride through a star-studded night sky on a dragon horse ignites a fire never before experienced. A woman is reminded that her long-time partner still sees her through a lover’s eyes. Mount up for a ride through a novella of passion and ten short stories of buried desire, sizzling encounters, and romantic surprises.

As one who doesn't normally read short story collections or lesbian erotica, I enjoyed this collection far more than I thought I would. Every story was tight and well-crafted so that I knew each character, saw their growth, and experienced the changes they went through within those few pages. The sex was always hot and the relationships were realistic, each with their difficulties. The technical writing style was impeccable, ranging from poetic to more straightforward and simple. I appreciated all of them, and admire the skill it takes to switch styles. The order in which the stories were placed gave me the opportunity to follow the progression of the characters and the web of their connections. The entire anthology was a demonstration of Leigh's considerable abilities.

Outstanding erotica collection.
