Hard Drive
Mack Stone can’t believe he’s just walked in on the delicious Kindrea Hill having an online affair in her office. Being discovered in flagrante computer delicto doesn’t seem to bother Kindra. In fact, she claims to prefer the impersonal touch to the complication of a relationship. That’s enough to make Mack issue a challenge of his own: He wants Kindra to grant him twelve nonstop hours to turn every erotic e-mail into a hot reality and prove that in love and pleasure, there’s not substitute for the real thing…


This novella is lustful, sexy and just oh so good. Not that I’ve ever trialled cybersex… but I do like the potential play involved… particularly when the description of Mack Stone is just oh so yummy. Even though this story is a little erotic, ultimately, I still found it to be a fairly sweet McCarthy story. There is just something so cute about her writing that I can’t deny. And I love it! Even when it’s dealing with cybersex…

Kindra and Mack kind of have a love at first sight vibe in their romance. But, then, it’s built up over a year or so of working together. This is the kind of romance I tend to prefer – I’ve never quite understood how true love is just based on a single glance – it feels like it should be something that takes a little more work. Plus, I love the moment when Mack shows how much he already knows about Kindra and shares how much he cares. It is so much more fun than, ‘wow, I was struck by lightning.’

The end of the story with Bitsy might actually be one of my favourite moments in a story. There is something hilarious about the whole scene. Particularly when you match the man I imagine Mack to be with a tiny little Toy Poodle with pink ribbons in her hair…
