This book is a reprint of three stories starring the Winston Brothers that were included in other anthologies.
“Tangled Sheets”. This tale introduces the siblings, but predominantly stars the oldest Cole, who suffers from unrequited love for Sophie Sheridan, who comes into his establishment almost every day for hot chocolate and whipped cream. Sophie loves Cole too, but the reticent woman cannot send him any signals. In desperation, she creates an outgoing fictitious twin Shelly to enable her to communicate with her beloved, but all this does is bewilder Cole who already loves Sophie.
Tangled Dreams. Allison Barrow seeks hidden treasure in her house populated by caring ancestral ghosts, Rose and Barrow. She turns to one of the Winston brothers, Chase, for help because he can read her mind. However, her brain is so triple XXX rated about him that cold showers cannot aid Chase. With the help of matchmaking ghosts, they fall in love.
Tangled Images. His family asks Mack Winston to pose in a male lingerie catalog, which the schoolteacher reluctantly agrees to do. At the studio, the photographer turns out to be Jessica Wells, a woman he salivated over in college though she is several years older than him. Mack has to prove to Jessica that he can have a good time but also understands responsibility, something her spouse ignored. He needs to prove he can be all things to her if she gives him a chance.
The Winston Brothers are three hunks and along with their respective beloved soul mates make for quite an engaging anthology. Fans who have read these stories in other books or for the first time will relish Lori Foster's ability to turn up the heat.
