An ebook of romantic tales from BVC authors, The Passionate Café contains stories that range from quirky and humorous to Regency, by Patricia Rice, Madeleine Robins, Jennifer Stevenson, Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, Marissa Day, and Sarah Zettel.

Readers are invited to travel into the magical realms of the Ælven with Pati Nagle, across the galaxy with Steven Harper, deep into the fae realms with P.R. Frost, through the splendid but treacherous halls of Versailles with Vonda N. McIntyre.
