These explicit, playful tales range from the sweetly sensual to the candidly carnal. Bill Noble's poetic "Stardrift" finds a beach runner drawn into an unexpected moonlight ménage. Saskia Walker's "It's Just Not Cricket" stars fearless bondage queen Ella, whose hobby of tying up "languid aristocratic types" is challenged by a randy noble who turns her into a human croquet game. Marilyn Jaye Lewis's piquant "That Summer by Our Pool" is a provocative tour of a woman's sexual history.
