I quite like anthologies of works where I can get to find new authors amongst a smorgasbord of delights that appeal to my mood and my state of current being. If you don't like a story in the anthology, turn the pages and find one you do like.

This collection of eclectic tales told by some bestselling and renowned writers doesn't disappoint. These are seventeen stories that should appeal to everyone's tastes and palates. I particularly enjoyed Tony Calvert's Hello Aloha. Who knew Goofy could be such a catch? This is an entertaining story of romantic longing, some rather unusual conversations and an almost fairytale ending.

I loved Nathan Burgoine's Struck, which was a beautiful tale of destiny, magic and the unexplainable. I mean a cute blond man called Lightening Todd telling you that he was going to 'fix your life' and then who proceeds to do just that. It's a sweet, delicious story of how things can actually get better.

And Greg Herren's story Touch Me in the Morning was tender and emotional as two men come to grips with what they actually mean to each other, without the misunderstandings getting in the way.

It's a very enjoyable book of well crafted, creative and romantic stories of men loving men, of different ages and walks of life, of varying views and personalities. There is something here for every taste, and the one thing I was struck with was the lack of actual sex, which was more inferred, imagined and dreamed.

It's a good book to have on the bookshelf.
