"The Rich Are Different" by Lisa Morton - Sara is the author of "The Rich Are Different" and is enthusiastic about meeting the wealthy Lennox who's a fan of hers. When she arrives at the mansion for a birthday party given by his sister Madelyn she finds herself hitting it off with Lennox. He tries to get her alone in a room but is interrupted by his sister who has her escorted to the limo out front. Lennox lies to his sister and flies to Sara's apartment only to be interrupted by the chauffeur as they are about to consummate their lust. Sara learns that the family is cursed to turn into satyrs whenever sexually aroused by anyone outside the family and the brother and sister can only mate successfully with each other.  

"The Manicure" by Nell Quinn-Gibney - A woman goes in for a manicure and with each finger done she remembers episodes from the past which utilize a motif of damaged fingers/nails. True to form, she gets cut on the last finger.
