"Forbidden Sins - Shannon is a lawyer in court battle defending her client who is accused of a crime by her x-husband police officer. In this title Shannon only has one quality nude seen. However there is quite a lot of footage of Amy Lindsay. Since this is a double feature it is well worth the price.Human Desires - Shannon is the owner of a fashion design business and one of the models is murdered. Shannon has only one nude scene in this movie. However Dawn Ann Billings, Ashby Adams, Peggy Trentini all have several quality scenes. Nice Double feature."
Not bad, it is worth to buy it.

"First, I am a fan of Shannon Tweed. Although she did not have much nudity in the moveis, I still enjoy the movie anyway. This pack includes two movies at cheap and valuable price."
Death in the modeling industry

"closer to 3 & 1/2 than 4 stars
1996 R-rated movie: language, violence, drug use, and nudity. Murder Mystery. 94 mins.
Credits: Shannon Tweed (Alicia Royale; "Night Eyes"), Christian Noble (Dean Thomas; "The Killing Jar"), Dawn Ann Billings (Zoe Taylor; "Virtual Combat"), Ashby Adams (Miles Royale; "Object of Obession"), Peggy Trentini (Julia; "The Neighbor's Wife"), G.W. Stevens (Peter Holden; "3 Wise Women"), Lisa Nohea (Melinda), and Duke Stroud (Roddy Daniels; "Beautiful Dreamer"). The director is Ellen Earnshaw, and the writer is Todd Smith.
Plot: Death in the modeling industry (which Tweed should have some familiarity with, being as she was a model for Playboy; not the murder part). A "fresh" look is being searched for by a major company for a huge campaign (contest held, $150,000 contract is the reward). Tweed runs a model agency with her husband. Girl, Julia, found dead in a pool at a pj party. Police suspect suicide. Friend of Julia's (Zoe) suspects murder and attempts to get a private investigator to investigate. The pi is reluctant - "no more of the rough stuff," initially turns her down, but eventually takes the case.
Review: There are two things that are expected in Tweed movies: 1) nudity and 2) subpar acting (maybe three things: good music might be #3). Very first scene includes nudity and confirms #1 (and then a pajama party). The beginning of the movie makes it seem as if it will turn out to be "nude action scenes" with filler (and oddly enough, the acting during that filler seems to be at a much higher level than you would expect; and an actual movie does develop). But then murder intrudes, and the action (as in mystery) starts.
The acting is better than excepted, the mystery is interesting (it should be noted that the mystery is investigated by a private investigator who is the main character in the movie, and is not Tweed), and the music is good. Around the nude scenes, there is actually a plot (if you don't fast forward through it). A plot that actually is intriguing, but quite illogical. Overall, I would give the movie 3.70 stars (grade somewhat lowered due to very excessive number of nude scenes (every time you turn around, someone is "flashing back" to a nude adult action scene), and for the PI sleeping with his client, and suspects)."
