Phantom The Immortal by Mitzi Szereto and Ashley Lister

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Literary, theatrical, operatic, with all the dark swooning grandeur and magical artifice that the theatre itself holds. Lush concoctions of unhurried phrases breath dark sensuality into sumptuously-described coupling. Every paragraph holds a metaphoric gem, making this writing ‘simply gorgeous’!

Description: Sexual desire and soul-searing need fuel this contemporary erotic sequel that relocates the original character from Gaston Leroux’s classic novel The Phantom of the Opera to present-day Paris…

While attending an auction of music memorabilia, young soprano Christine Delacroix bids on some letters written by another young soprano, Christine Daaé, who lived during the 19th century. Here she meets the handsome Compte Rezso Esterhazy, who immediately sets out to court her. Despite his attentions, Christine becomes obsessed with the Daaé letters and her namesake’s mysterious “Angel of Music”—a masked man who lived beneath the Paris Opera House.

Seemingly immortal and frozen in time, the Phantom is condemned to life below the opera house and in the shadows…until Christine Delacroix auditions for a minor role in Faust. Convinced the Christine from his past has been returned to him, he sets out for her to have the lead female role. He visits her in her dressing room to give her singing lessons, all the while remaining hidden from view. Insanely jealous over Christine’s budding romance with the Compte, the Phantom abducts her and takes her to his underground lair, where the singing lessons continue. Only this time they are far more depraved and sexual in nature.

A debut writing collaboration from bestselling authors Mitzi Szereto and Ashley Lister!

Stories that titillate and entertain, provoke wild thoughts or sensual dreams, they’re all here in ‘Oysters and Pearls.’ Enjoy!”—Kate Douglas, bestselling author of “Spirit Wild” and “Intimate Relations” “Mitzi Szereto has a quirky and intriguing hold on suburbia, desperation, the loneliness of the human heart and the essential sadness of its yearning, as we seek to express it through sexual contact. It’s a dark and poignant place, of course, but laughter is never entirely absent. Which is just as it should be.”—Niall Griffiths, author of “Wreckage” and “Sheepshagger” “The strength of this collection lies in its imaginative grasp of the wide variety of cultures, landscapes and emotional engagement of the reader as well the sexual.”—Tobsha Learner, bestselling author of “Picture This”

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 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.

really yours, after all?
