Micro Review:  Ecologically sound and environmentally hot-as-Hades! This collection shows the quality of Selena Kitt’s writing, as she checks her trademark taboo kink at the door, in favour of languidly painting with deep, rich colours that slowly build fire and develop understanding, as our protagonists discover moments of true connection that sizzle with a sensuality not seen enough in modern writing. This collection of stories melds the world of humankind with the environment to touch on what joins us all. A warning though: don’t expect an HEA with all of these.

Description: 2009 Eppie Award Finalist. In this tribute to nature and the environment, Selena Kitt pays homage to Mother Earth’s beauty and grandeur — and her conservation. Who else could tackle topics like global warming, strip mining, animal endangerment and environmental toxicity, all while making them hot, hot, hot?

This anthology includes seven sexy and environmentally provocative stories that will rock your world—and arouse and raise more than your environmental awareness.  Stories include: The Break, Cry Wolf, Genesis, Law of Conservation, Lightning Doesn’t Strike Twice, Paved Paradise and bonus story Core Deep.

The Killer Wore Leather by Laura Antoniou

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Sharp as a rapier, beautifully tongue in cheek, and full of wit, this is a wildly mayhem-filled joyous romp of a murder mystery.

Description: Mr. Global Leather has been murdered! In the Grand Sterling Hotel of Midtown Manhattan, home of the huge annual leather/BDSM/fetish ball and contest, Mr. & Ms. Global Leather, last year’s male winner lies dead on the floor of his suite, wearing only very frilly, bright yellow panties. Cormac “Mack” Steel made a lot of enemies in his year wearing the studded leather sash, not the least being his co-winner Mistress Ravenfyre. But she is not alone – there are over three thousand attendees at this year’s fetish-festooned event from all over the world, some of whom might have had some very personal issues with the corpse. Enter Detective Rebecca Feldblum of the Midtown East Precinct. Assigned to this doozy of a case because, as one of NYC’s only out lesbian detectives, her Lieutenant seems to believe these are “her people.” Shocked, amazed and alternately puzzled and amused, Detective Feldblum must navigate a world of doms and subs, masters and mistresses, pups and trainers, leather, latex and lingerie, and discover who murdered the late Mack Steel – and hopefully do it before the weekend is over and everyone goes home. In the process, she will discover more about the sexual underworld than she ever really wanted to know, and more about her own past than she could have ever imagined. Written in the classic spirit of Sharyn McCrumb’s Bimbos of the Death Sun, The Killer Wore Leather is both an engaging mystery and a humorous glimpse into the world of modern, pansexual international leather/BDSM contests and conferences.

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 Sleeping Beauty Trilogy/Quartet by A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice)

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Anne Rice (author of Interview with the Vampire) trades sensual gothic horror/tragedy for sensual debauchery in this modern take on a classic fairy tale. Sumptuously descriptive and wickedly depraved, the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy has become an erotica modern classic.

Description: In the traditional folktale of “Sleeping Beauty,” the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind’s unconscious. In the first book of the trilogy, Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty’s complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience.

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.

Inside Charlotte (The Promiscuous Wanderings of Charlotte Somerset Book 1) by Jo B. Hayve

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: A flowing river of sensual and sexualised thought as the protagonist jeopardises her 12-year marriage to explore her coming-out-of-hibernation sexuality. The writing is a kind of incisive ‘stream of consciousness come internal monologue’ conveying with poignancy the woman’s feelings so we empathise with her, even when she’s treading a dangerous line of deception and adultery.

Description: Junior college professor Charlotte Bannon has been faithfully married for 12 years. Her husband Tommy is a good lover, and a great guy, and to the best of her knowledge, Charlotte loves him. But a brief encounter at a wedding has destroyed Charlotte’s feelings of satisfaction. Soon she cheats on her husband with a complete stranger, and to her surprise, knows that she will again. Charlotte cannot even feel guilt over her affairs. Something is wrong inside Charlotte, and she cannot understand what it could be. Missy is a student at a junior college, and works part time at a lingerie shop. She married Bruce too young, and now wants to know what she is missing. When Charlotte enters her store with hushed tales of forbidden encounters, Missy is seduced. The redheaded professor and the young brunette become allies, and more, in their erotic quest to uncover their hidden motivations while exploring the lives they both know they have been missing. But is Missy really like Charlotte? Or are Charlotte’s motivations much deeper and more fundamental than Missy’s?

Micro Review: Where scientific ideas on a grand scale meets paranormal possibilities in lesbian encounters told with sensitivity and sensuality.

Description: Five lesbian erotic love stories of magic and mystery. What will you find on the other side of the mirror? Love? Passion? A world upside down? Step up to the mirror, look deep into your own eyes (or those of your secret, mirror-world lover) and prepare to have your worldview completely shifted. The grass really is greener on the other side—and the sex is hotter, too. For as long as humans have known to look for their own reflections, they have pondered the magical question: What would you find if you step past your own reflection and into the mirror world? In these five stories, the answer is passion and fire. Five women step up to the mirror and come out the other side in the midst of their hottest erotic fantasies, whether that involves reviving the dying embers of a love affair, seducing a beloved old friend… or perhaps just finding out for sure what some women have long suspected: that sex really is better with yourself for a partner! These heroines take risks, brave it all, and step into the unknown, between dimensions, between worlds, to lay claim to the love and heat that they both deserve and crave.

Micro Review:  A fun, wild romp with plenty of suburban sex as a conventional couple grows to include another female in their sex life. The storytelling has a simplicity and immediacy to it that mean it’s not particularly literary, but if light and frothy with sustained sexual content is what you’re after, this could fit the bill.

Description: Fiona, an attractive thirty-something, has been stuck in a loveless marriage for longer than she cares to remember. She’s also desperate to have a baby, but she and her husband are unable to conceive. Then a chance encounter with Jenny, a happily married woman whom she met briefly a few years before, gives her some hope of becoming pregnant, with the assistance of Jenny’s husband, Steve. But things don’t go quite as planned. Soon, Fiona, Jenny and Steve are locked into a passionate, addictive and intense ménage à trois that will thoroughly stretch the boundaries of their combined erotic experience and change all of their lives forever.

Wicked, mordantly funny, and wise, Adultery teaches us a great many things about love, a literary life misspent, and the consequences of too much money.

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)”.

When Tom returns to his post in a Sri Lanka orphanage, Katie isn’t sure if their passion was lit by its brevity, or if love, unexpected and not entirely wanted, has edged its way into her life. Should she go back to being who she always was? Or follow Tom into the unknown?
Katie in Love is a compelling contemporary romance that will grip readers as they follow Katie’s journey to an ending they may have expected – but not in the way they expected it.

Between The Shores by The New Smut Project

 

Available at Amazon

A volume of literary erotica centered around the possibilities of sexual negotiation.

Twenty complex, surprising, intense, and relatable stories from a spectrum of new and established writers explore something unusual in erotic fiction: someone saying no. Submissives—and dominants—safeword out of a BDSM scene. Couples (and one threesome!) discover the possibilities and boundaries of their new relationships. Past trauma rears its head. Personal preferences clash.

Between the Shores shows respect for the boundaries people set as an integral part of sex, and highlights trust, communication—and mutual pleasure.

Some call a halt to the action. Some proceed with care and caution. Some bare secrets to their partners that they’ve never before shared. And some find exciting alternatives. Through negotiation—whether serious or accompanied by laughter—they move beyond their “no” to reach what they truly desire: healing, growth, and fulfillment both sexual and otherwise.

The Moon-Haunted Heart by Terrance Aldon Shaw

 

Available at Amazon

Sometimes, the truest tales are about what ‘almost’ happened; not what was, but what just as easily might have been. The would’ves, the should’ves, the could’ves, the haunting maybes and the melancholy might-haves are the fertile soil in which the most powerful and affecting fiction takes root. Then too, sometimes, the most intriguing stories leave a bit of mystery beyond the margins—small enigmas for the reader to ponder hours and days after the book has been closed. Sometimes, the shortest stories are the ones that stay with us the longest.

The fifty very-short pieces in this collection of mature literary fiction range from as many as 4,000 to as few as 50 words. The purpose of these stories is not necessarily to arouse, but rather to explore various aspects of the human condition through the lens of the erotic in a way that is both enlightening and entertaining.

There are brief vignettes—entire worlds conjured up within the space of an eye-blink—alongside more conventionally expansive narratives. There are a number of stories about the erotic dimensions of ‘disability,’ particularly visual impairment. There are pan-sexual celebrations—the hetero- and homoerotic along with the intentionally ambivalent. There are richly atmospheric scene-settings, effusive literary evocations, and casual pop-culture-inspired dialogues; orneriness and ecstasy, contemporary vulgarity and timeless transcendence standing cheek by jowl, low comedy, erotic horror and lambent exultation comfortably sharing the same space, breathing the same air, seeking the same truth.

Fifty stories from that secret place where love and madness meet.
