Review to come

 

“The Office Slave” by Opal Carew (ebook)
This is a 9,000 word erotic story featuring a fantasy of a woman submitting to several male office workers. The story was fine, but a bit too short and underdeveloped for me.

 

“Taboo” by Olivia Rupprecht
This is a Loveswept category romance from 1991 which features a hero who is in love with his stepsister – and has been for most of his life. The heroine is three years older than the hero, but is a frigid virgin. This is absolutely a crack read.
