Candy Caine takes you on one roller coaster ride with Heated Pleasures. If you are looking for stories that have love at first, ménage a trios and the world of domination, then Heated Pleasures is the book for you. Out of the five stories, my favorites are Dare to Love and Dangerous Attraction. I love Candy Caine’s writing and how she pulls you in with her use of words. I look forward to reading more of her work.
