Mackenzie McKade, Cathryn Fox, and Nikki Duncan have teamed up in a contemporary erotic anthology being released throughout January and February 2011. This is a review of the third installment, WICKED…IN WHISPERING COVE by Nikki Duncan. The anthology takes place in Whispering Cove, Maine, a small seaside village, where a ten-year high school reunion is bringing back the students who have all left town after graduation. Though they have each found some level of success, they have yet to find love.
Great secondary characters – the town's grandfathers – have turned into matchmakers as they prepare for the return of their grandchildren. During a poker game, the men place a wager on which of their grandchildren will be the first to the altar, and the first to give them some great grandkids. The grandfather sub-plot is truly at the crux of what makes this anthology a winner.
In WICKED, the hero Braydon Mitchell is a sexy freelance writer who has spent the past ten years sailing around the world. He is returning home because of concerns for his grandfather's health but Braydon also plans to mix in some fun and attend his high school reunion. But he certainly has no plans to put down anchor in the small town in which he was raised by his grandparents until he meets his grandfather's sexy doctor and things change.
Danica Kent has returned as Whispering Cove's town doctor after medical school and residency in the city. She provides care to all her patients but has a special place in her heart for the town grandfathers who suddenly seem to be up to mischief. A house call to one of them brings her face-to-face with Braydon, her high school crush, and she suddenly feels like the clumsy, dorky girl she was back then. Her reinvented self falters as she works to gain hold of her self-esteem in the face of Braydon's return. Readers will appreciate and relate to how down-to-earth the heroine is.
Though it's a short story, the reader watches not only the evolution of a sweet relationship, but also the blossoming of Danica's spirit, as they discover a connection to one another. With a splash of humorous moments and tantalizing encounters, WICKED is a good read. When sexual sparks flare between them, Danica and Braydon begin something that neither can predict how it will end. But I guarantee every hopeless romantic will not be disappointed.
