I Want You Bad: Obsessed Erotic Romance for Women by Rachel Kramer BusselI Want You Bad: Obsessed Erotic Romance for Women by Rachel Kramer Bussel (Ed)
Cleis Press, July 14, 2015; ISBN-10: 1940550122

We've all been there — so taken by a lover that you just can't stop thinking about him. Your imagination runs wild, fueling your fantasies. You feel hot, feverish, out of control. Your only hope of release is to possess and be possessed. In I Want You Bad, Rachel Kramer Bussel has curated a gloriously explicit collection of riveting romance with an edge. Whether just-blooming passions, rekindled sparks, or reinvented relationships, these lovers put the object of their obsession first.

From the almost-divorced couple in “Aftershocks” by Bella Andre, who finally confess their deepest desires during an earthquake, to a woman who tells her boyfriend just how much she lusts after another man in Emerald's “Then,” these lovers push the boundaries of their trust and are rewarded for those risks. Obsessed lovers don't always do what is rational; sometimes they chase their dreams across the world and across the landscape of their lovers' bodies, as in Kayla Perrin's “One Night in Paris.” Lustful and literary, this book asks just how far you'll go for the man you love.

"Whenever we're looking for really kinky erotica, we turn to editrix extraordinaire Rachel Kramer Bussel. Her anthologies of hot, steamy sex stories are always enticing, and once we pick one up, we can't put it down." —Penthouse Forum

The Professor by Charlotte SteinThe Professor by Charlotte Stein
Mischief (HarperCollins Publishers), September 2015

Esther wrote down her fantasies about her tutor, but she never intended for him to read them.

Esther has always been an average student. She coasts through life on a sea of Bs, until a fatal mistake jolts her out of mediocrity and into something else entirely. She accidentally leaves a story in an essay for her teacher — one that no teacher should ever see. And especially not Professor Halstrom.

His lectures are legendary, and he is formidable. But most of all: he is devastatingly handsome, and now he has Esther's most private and erotic fantasies. The stage is set for humiliation. Until the Professor presents her with a choice. He offers private tuition at his home.

And at first that's exactly what she does, sure there remains a line between teacher and student that she would never cross it and that someone like Halstrom never would. He is far too cold and sharp, and so invested in all of his rules that breaking them seems unthinkable.

A single touch would be too much. A wrong word could ignite an inferno. So what happens when both of them want to burn?

Reviews: "You can always count on Charlotte Stein to put you in the mood, for just about anything." - Coffee Time Romance " of the most highly erotic and sexual books I've ever read." - Book Binge on Telling Tales "A non-stop crazy hot sex book." - Amber Skye on Control

The Antidote by Lisabet Sarai The Antidote by Lisabet Sarai
Amazon Digital Services, August 2015

Sixty years after the Plague, few remember the mass deaths, the riots and the massacres triggered by the sexually-transmitted disease. Still, most people accept the Council’s mysterious libido-suppression technology as necessary to prevent a resurgence of the deadly virus. Monthly procreative sex, government-supported and hormone-enhanced, is enough to satisfy them.

Lena’s different. Though she loves her husband Jeff, she yearns to experience the thrill of forbidden lust, to know what it feels like to couple with a stranger. Rumors speak of an antidote that liberates the libido from the Council’s thrall. Denied from birth, Lena is willing to risk everything—her marriage, her freedom, even her life—for one taste of unbridled desire.

Me and My Boi: Queer Erotic Stories by Sacchi Green (Ed)Me and My Boi: Queer Erotic Stories by Sacchi Green (Ed)
Cleis Press, September 2015; ISBN 1627781218

Sacchi Green is one of the most lauded and respected queer writers of today. And why? Because she breaks new ground with each and every book. Me and My Boi throbs with the currency of lesbian love and lust today, when the love dares speak it's name using new words, terms and letters.

Me and My Boi celebrates lesbian bois, butches, and screw-the-binary free spirits; cool bois, hot bois, swaggering bois, shy bois, leather bois, flannel bois, butch daddies, and the girls (and other bois) who wouldn’t have them any other way. The stories range from Sinclair Sexsmith’s raw “Five Blow Jobs” through Victoria Oldham’s searing “Resurrection” and old-school lesbian bar tale “Hot Pants” by Jen Cross to the aching tenderness of “Her Gardener’s Boy” by D. Orchid. Twenty authors, among them Sommer Marsden, Annabeth Leong, Tamsin Flowers and Kathleen Tudor, heat up settings all the way from a Regency drawing room to modern Paris to a Brooklyn bike shop. Whatever turns you on, or cuts deep, or sparks your wildest fantasies, if these writers don’t push the buttons you already have, they’ll hook you up with some new ones. Gender has no boundaries, and neither does lust.
