Under a Texas Sky
By Dorothy Garlock
Growing up poor and largely abandoned on the streets of 1920s Chicago, Anna Finnegan has struggled her entire life. Until a talent manager discovers her and brings her into the world of theater. Now years later she's about to start shooting her first movie. Arriving on location in Redstone, Texas, in 1932, Anna steps off the train and collides into Dalton Barnes. He's lived in Redstone all his life and hates how the big city out-of-towners are gawking at the small-town locals like him. It doesn't take long, though, for Anna and Dalton to discover fireworks of a different sort between them. But the movie is plagued by one trouble after another, including a fire that destroys an elaborate set and costumes ruined by huge splashes of paint. Who is sabotaging the film and why? To what lengths will they go? When Anna finds herself threatened, how will she and the love blossoming between her and Dalton survive?

This deftly written collection of twenty erotic tales is sure to titillate, intrigue and inspire. Editor of several successful erotica anthologies, Hanne Blank knows good sex, and this, her first book-length solo offering, demonstrates her considerable talents as a creator of erotic fiction. Blank's tantalizing descriptions, smart writing, and fantastic imagination are sure to hit their mark. Unruly Appetites draws readers in immediately with the most scintillating, intimate details of its characters' unrestrained encounters. One story describes a chance meeting on the road where "maybe turns to yes without ceremony, without fuss." Readers may find themselves both shocked and enthralled by the human-feline encounter described in "The Princess and the Tiger," or lost in possibilities from the graphic memories of a foursome aroused by steamy Polaroids. Or intrigued by the adventures of pearls-from-Tiffany Katie with the nipple-less bra under her Chanel suit, or a young virgin's deflowering in Europe: "I wonder, does that make me a tramp, not knowing the last name of the man who took my virginity?". The myriad fantasies, perspectives, dreams, realities, groupings, shapes and ages presented here offer almost limitless variety.
