Devlin (Smokin' Hot Firemen) assembles a passable erotic anthology of stories about men in uniform—including soldiers, cops, paramedics, and special agents—and the women who love, desire, and ogle them. Alice Janell's "As You Were" and Sidney Bristol's "Once Upon a Time in Mukdahan" showcase strong, confident women who more than match up to their male counterparts, and who show that having a thing for heroes doesn't preclude being a bit of a badass yourself. Some stories, like Sharon Hamilton's "SEAL Destiny," are even brave enough to portray a hero with a weakness for a particular woman in his life. Unfortunately, Brindle Chase's "Renegade" and others put their testosterone-soaked heores in opposition to fluff-brained women in need of rescue. Devlin does deliver on her promise of serious alpha males who are ready to swoop in and save the day, steal a few hearts, and set fire to the sheets. (Oct.)
