The Lure of Dangerous Women by Shanna Germain

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Atmospheric, intense, with the possibilities for dark tragedy and danger around every corner. Wonderfully evocative writing.

Description: Dangerous women aren’t always the ones who carry guns and take down the bad guys. Sometimes, the most dangerous women are the ones we don’t even notice — the sultry siren crooning in a smoky bar, the innocent young girl twirling in her summer dress, the soft-shoed nurse who helps the comatose. In this collection, award-winning author Shanna Germain gathers seven of her darkest, lushest fantasy and horror stories about strong, smart women who know that danger is a matter of scale — and of which side you happen to be standing on.

The Museum of Deviant Desires by Fulani

The Museum of Deviant Desires by Fulani

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Sensual erotica centred around the subculture of dark BDSM with its harsh devotion and seemingly-at-times cruel brutality, but seasoned always with affection and devotion, providing insight into how the participants feel. Some may find it too much, but for those who venture, these powerful images will not fail to affect.

Description: Eleven erotic stories to excite, entertain, enthrall, and overstimulate the imagination, covering men’s adventure magazines with their sleazy sexploitation and politically incorrect pictures of tortured women; sex and bondage in an abandoned building and a burned-out car wreck; and sex, photography, and the internet. They investigate the sense of anticipation just before a corporal punishment scene, and what characters in bdsm stories think about the painful pleasures the author inflicts on them. They explore internet piracy and how royalties may be collected in the future. And they expose you to the late-night weirdness of sex, perversion, and fetish at a music festival. And then there’s the question of vacuum cleaners. Vacuum cleaners can be erotic in a technosexual kind of way. Fulani is a master of erotic writing and a prolific author whose recent publications include the lesbian vampire novella The Vampire Skye, and stories of sex, fetish, and bondage in the bohemian world of Hanging Around. Rich with insights into the passion that attracts and binds, his distinctive dark erotica blends bdsm, fetish, and futuristic themes with imagination and humor.

The Villa Series by LN Bey

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: With Bey, it’s less about the literary aspects and more about the imaginative situations and torments she dreams up for the inhabitants of her books’ pages. Like her novel, ‘Blue’, the Villa series is provocative, imaginative and darkly-explicit BDSM erotica not for the faint-hearted.

Description: Submissive David has sold himself into a year of sexual servitude at an exclusive live-in BDSM manor, devoting his body and mind to the pleasure of the wealthy clientele who come to stay and play at the exclusive Renaissance castle in Italy. Today is David’s birthday, which means above and beyond the usual humiliations, the Masters and Mistresses have put their imaginations to work devising unique torments in celebration of David’s special day. How will the clientele use him for sport? And what part will the mysterious new female arrival play in the unfolding drama? Bey’s ‘Villa’ series is set to comprise 12 linked novelettes (with the first 3 currently available) depicting a global network of wealthy élites who trade and train voluntary slaves for their sexual amusement. It’s a rough life, submitting to these people, and leaving can be difficult once accepted – yet for some, this is exactly what they’ve been searching for. Welcome to The Villa – an unforgettable experience.

Carrie’s Story & Safe Word by Molly Weatherfield (Pam Rosenthal)

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Carrie’s Story and its sequel, Safe Word, are quintessential examples of long-form BDSM ‘erotica with a story’. Relayed in first person, we learn not only of what has happened and is happening to the submissive Carrie, but also her reflections, thoughts and reactions to it all.

Description: “I had been Jonathan’s slave for about a year when he told me he wanted to sell me at an auction. I wasn’t in any condition to respond when he told me this.” So begins Carrie’s tale of uncompromising sexual adventure. Set in San Francisco and Napa Valley, this is an erotic journey into the netherworld of slave auctions and training regimes. Imagine Story of O starring a Berkeley Ph.D. in comparative lit who moonlights as a bike messenger and has a penchant for irony, self-analysis, and anal sex. “My favorite neo-Victorian erotic romance writer … bring on the ponies!” — Susie Bright

Take Me Like the World Ends at Midnight by Terrance Aldon Shaw

Take Me Like The World Ends At Midnight by Terrance Aldon Shaw

 

Available at Amazon

Forbidden fruit is always the sweetest. The eight stories in this volume capture the thrill of the unexpected; a handsome stranger’s touch in a dark theater; a night of passion with the most unlikely of mystery men; the sheer adrenaline rush of sudden contact; the silent promise of ecstasy. In “Her Dark Passage”, ignored by her husband and abandoned by her so-called best friend, Jessi is left alone on a rainy night to celebrate her fortieth birthday at a decrepit old movie house. But the Humphrey Bogart double feature is less interesting than the handsome young stranger who sits down next to her halfway through the show.

In “Saturday Nights in the Middle of Nowhere” deep in the wild, wide-open subconscious of the southern Great Plains, a shadowy roadhouse caretaker tells the tale of aspiring chanteuse, Suzan L’Amour, and the unlikely lover who changed her life forever. “The Sweet Guy Tells All” answers the question of whether nice guys ever get lucky.  The action in “Sleeping Dogs and Southern Comfort” sees Nancy and her boyfriend head to a reunion of his old Marine unit, where Nancy finds herself in bed with “the other woman’s” gorgeous, half-wit brother. In “Night Vision” a down-and-out ex jazz DJ discovers an unusual ability, born of his very ordinariness. “Three Lies Before the River” sees gorgeous Terri’s psychic ability, which has always given her an edge both on the job and at the poker table, put to the test as a co-worker complicates matters.  In “Mr. Friday’s Midlife Crisis”, a 60-year-old man meets life head-on in the form of a smart-mouthed, vivacious nineteen-year-old college coed with major cash-flow problems and a boyfriend who bores her to tears. In “Summer of ‘69”, hot on the heels of Woodstock and moon-landings, sixteen-year-old Nate’s family vacation at Lake Michigan ends up in turmoil when long-lost “Aunt” Penny shows up for a visit.

Most of these stories are also available in an ebook titled “Six Erotic Tales: The Complete Entertainments (So Far)”.

Rule 34: if it exists, someone’s kinky for it.

Away from those high-end fetish clubs, alpha billionaires and join-the-dots BDSM ‘journeys’, there are almost limitless possibilities for the erotic imagination.

If you’ve ever had a fantasy too surreal to share with anyone else, you are definitely not alone. Take a walk on the weird side: you won’t regret it.

Available at Amazon

Red Velvet and Absinthe explores love and lust with otherworldly partners who, by their sheer fantastical nature, evoke passion and desire far beyond that which any normal human being can inspire. Although the greats such as Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier are long dead, these contemporary authors keep the Gothic spirit alive and well by interpreting it in new and exciting ways. Red Velvet and Absinthe offers readers a collection of unique and original stories that conjure up the atmospheric and romantic spirit of the Gothic masters (and mistresses) but take things a bit further by adding to the brew a generous dosage of eroticism. Lie back and listen to the wind howling outside your window as you read these stories in the flickering light of a candle, the absinthe you’re sipping warming your body like the caressing touch of a lover’s fingers.

‘Funny, brutal, and irreverent’ – Bustle.com

Inspired by Eastern European and Russian superstitions and folklore, here are twelve tales; darkly delicious imaginings for the adult connoisseur of bedtime stories.  Be drawn into a world where the boundaries between the everyday and the unearthly are snakeskin-thin, where the trees have eyes and the night has talons, where demons, drawn by the perfume of human vice and wickedness, lurk with intents malicious and capricious. Tread carefully, for here the dark things best left behind in the forest may seep under your door and sup with you; the lover at your window or in your bed may have the scent of your death already on their breath.

“We are the shiver on your uneasy flesh,
The creep of the unknown on your skin.”

Whispered to you from the edges, from the haunted mouths of those who see more than you or I, here are twelve tales of lust and rivalry, of envy and deceit, and of secrets gouged from the darkest depths of the human heart.

Is the shadow on the wall,
really yours, after all?

The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories by Peter Tupper

 

Available at Amazon

In a steampunk society where sex is ritualized and marriage is sacred, the slightest misstep can bring your world tumbling down. In this collection, Peter Tupper explores the many facets of a time that never was, and a society that is all too familiar. Rich in eroticism, and immersive in its detail, The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories is a sterling example of what steampunk can be.

In an unnamed place, in a time that never was, sex is elevated as high as ritual, and can be had for the price of a theater ticket. In The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories, Peter Tupper explores the many facets of a complicated, sensual, and, in many ways, rigidly conservative society. Here, we are given passes to a theater of fantasies; we are allowed into the labyrinthine world of steam-powered workhouses; and we are given glimpses into the minds and mettle of the kind of people who survive in such a world.

London Triptych by Jonathan Kemp

 

Available at Amazon

Rent boys, aristocrats, artists, and criminals populate this sweeping novel in which author Jonathan Kemp skillfully interweaves the lives and loves of three very different men in gay London across the decades.

In the 1890s, a young man named Jack apprentices as a rent boy and discovers a life of pleasure and excess that leads to new friendships, most notably with the soon-to-be-infamous Oscar Wilde. A century later in 1998, David tells his own tale of unashamed decadence from prison, recalling life as a young man arriving in the city in the mid-’80s just as the scourge of AIDS hit. Where their paths cross, in the politically sensitive 1950s, when gay men were the target of police and politicians alike, the artist Colin tentatively explores his sexuality while working on his painting “London Triptych.”

Moodily atmospheric and rich with history, London Triptych is a sexy, resplendent portrait of the politics and pleasures of queer life in one of the world’s most fascinating cities.
