In this scintillating quartet of stories by four of today's most popular romance writers, the answers are discovered in a younger man's embrace ... in tender promises of pleasure whispered behind closed doors ... in the hunger of his deep, soft, candlelight kisses ... and in his ability to reawaken in his lover the joyous simplicity of a past innocence.... Let yourself go... In order to fulfill an ancient family prophecy, a young woman is destined to marry a younger man--or else court disaster....
