Voracious: Erotica for Women by Violet Blue (Ed)
All steamed up and nothing to read? Voracious: Erotica for Women opens a Pandora’s box of pleasures, with scorching encounters, dreamy partners, and heart-pounding thrills that won’t put a run in your fishnets (and a few that will). In Teresa Noelle Roberts’ “Voice of an Angel,” an opera costumer helplessly infatuated with a countertenor — a man who sings a female part in baroque opera —makes interesting discoveries as she measures his inseam. In Susie Hara’s “Puffy Lips,” a refined woman indulges her primitive urge to take what she wants from a modern-day caveman in a dark alley. Kathleen Bradean’s “Chill” describes the lengths to which the heroine will go to enact her unusual, icy fetish at an exclusive “spa.” “Kink was the candy coating that made sex tastier,” she explains. “Fetish was sweet dark chocolate, straight up.”
Stylishly edited by sex guru Violet Blue, these edgy erotic treats showcase the most daring, best-written erotica available. And, like a gorgeous lover, it complements any bedroom decor.

Like a Coming Wave: Oceanic Erotica by Andrea Trask (Ed)
The ocean is a vast playground of creatures real and imagined, rife with power and depth. Almost every culture has stories of sea creatures, from gods of water and wave to mermaids to selkies and even creatures still stranger. Many myths concern the meeting of this alien, watery world with the land, the intersection of foreign and known.
Each of these stories explores the sexual side of marine myths in a unique and unusual way. Mermaids and -men, selkies, Greek Gods, and even kraken cavort in these pages, featuring stories from Nisi Shawl, Julie Cox, Marie Carlson, Pepper Espinoza, and more, representing various sexualities and styles.
Best Erotic Romance 2013 by Kristina Wright (Ed)
So what happens with love meets sex? Erotic love is that delicious blend of hearts and minds and bodies, a combination of sweet and dirty, romantic and sexy. Sex by itself—hot, steamy, sensual sex—is one of the best things this life has to offer. But then, so is love. First love, new love, renewed love; love that has stood the test of time, love that has conquered every obstacles. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new relationship, such as Jeanette Grey’s yogo-bound characters in “Teach Me,” or a long-term relationship like Dominic Santi’s happily (and lusty) married couple in “Kiss of Peace”— the combination of sex and love is incendiary.
The collection is split between familiar authors and authors new to the genre. Best-selling author Kate Pearce delivers a scorching hot fantasy that takes place in a department store dressing room in "The Price of Love." Teresa Noelle Roberts has a sweetly erotic story about parents waiting for their adopted son in "Waiting for Ilya" and Geneva King's "Last Hundred Days" recounts the last hundred days between a divorcing couple.

Cowboy Lust: Erotic Romance for Women by Delilah Devlin (Ed)
There's a reason Western romance novels never go out of fashion. The cowboy is an iconic figure embodying the dichotomy of the fiercely independent, earthy alpha male crossed with the male as a nurturer and protector. Cowboys take care of their women in every possible way. Wild and wayward women are gentled by the scent of horse and cow and the sight of sun-kissed skin, the feel of work-hardened thighs and arms, and the sound of a deep-voiced Texas drawl.
Thrones of Desire: Erotic Tales of Swords, Mist and Fire by Mitzi Szereto (Ed)
Thrones of Desire is a place where lust and legend abound, and adventure, passion and danger entwine. Think mystical lands and creatures, kings and queens, knights and renegades, heroes and villains, warlords, maidens and princesses. Think battles and danger, honor and dishonor, good and evil. Most of all, think hearts filled with passion and secret desire. This is a place where romantic chivalry is alive and well, but so too is romantic wickedness. This is a place where the good do not always win, and the bad are often more captivating and desirable than their altruistic counterparts.
In these lush and timeless landscapes, the battle for flesh can be as important as the battle for power. Intrigue, sorcery, revenge, lawlessness, dark secrets and mysterious elixirs; entanglements with supernatural beings — everything is possible in these magical mythical landscapes. Inspired by Game of Thrones these imaginative steamy tales transport the reader to fantastical realms.

Named and Shamed by Janine Ashbless
Review by Ashley Lister: This is an awful lot of fun. I grew up in an era when I was supposed to go to bed with a fairy story and enjoy the fantastical tales of other worlds and the creatures that lived therein. Named and Shamed helped me recapture those fond memories but from the perspective of an adult who also enjoys the erotic titillation of characters exploring their hedonistic natures.
Written by the incredibly talented Janine Ashbless, illustrated by the stylish and talented John LaChatte, Named and Shamed is pitched as a ‘Dark and Dirty Fairy Tale’ and this succinctly describes the content.
The basic premise is that our heroine, Tansy, has stolen a manuscript relating to her studies into the magical worlds of mythical creatures. Tansy is a wonderful real-world heroine and her story in this magical world is an absolute delight.
From the vivid description, through to the strong characterisation, through to the plot that makes you want to stay awake into the early hours of the morning – Named and Shamed is one of the most fun reading experiences you will have this year.
Meet Tansy, follow her adventures, and look out for future Janine Ashbless titles.
