From time travel romance, Thoroughly Modern Amanda.

What would it feel like to have those hands roving over her body?

This line is from "Is It Only A Myth?" one story in my fantasy anthology, "Loves, Myths, and Monsters."

From Jareth First Lord--
"Leaving instructions with the officer in charge, Jareth and his ten man honor guard rode to the east, their cloaks unfurled in the wind as they disappeared like dark specters into the fog and falling snow."

First line from "Murder by Hair Spray in Gardenia, New Atlantis"

The evil cloud of hair spray dominated the air in guest room 666 at Gardenia's only motel, The Eternal Magnolia—so named because it was surrounded by a park-like acre of Magnolia trees, saved despite the cataclysmic weather, wars and land changes on Earth.
