Cheeky Spanking Stories
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
The Art of Spanking
From naughty and nice to fabulously kinky, these stingingly good spanking stories will please aficionadoes as well as readers new to the ecstatic delights of the paddle, crop or hand. A woman dresses as a man to gain access to "The Spanking Salon" in Elizabeth Coldwell's dangerously erotic story, and her punishment is meted out stroke by stroke. The brother of a flatmate turns out to be "The Perfect Domme" in Lucy Felthouse's story of serendipitous sex. In Donna George Storey's "The Assignment," a young journalist planning an exposé on a professional spank daddy is deliciously exposed herself. Editor of the bestselling Spanked, Bussel reflects that "there are an infinite number of ways to talk about the pleasures of spanking. Me? I get off just thinking about bending over for that special someone."
Nobody can make you blush better than Rachel Kramer Bussel.

Lips Like Sugar, 2nd Edition
Women's Erotic Fantasies
Edited by Violet Blue
Foreword by Thomas S. Roche
Women's Sexual Desires, With a Twist
Violet Blue wants to stir your erotic imagination and fire up your fantasies. In Lips Like Sugar, she serves stories of audaciously joyful sex, dished up without qualifiers or apologies. From sweet and scintillating to downright raw, these erotic encounters cover just about every conceivable sexual scenario, each one utterly delectable. Debra Hyde's "The Accidental Exhibitionist" follows a nearly naked submissive as she models new fetish gear and serves her master in public. Teresa Lamai's "Idyll" finds poetry and passion in a scorching three-way set in Croatia. And Carolina John's "The 9.30 to Edinburgh" shows just how accomodating a British train compartment can be to a group of sexually charged strangers. As Violet Blue suggests, "use this book as you would any sex toy—or travel guide."

Erotic Tales of Immortal Desire
Edited by D.L. King
Hot as Hell
She’s beautiful. She’s enchanting. She’s your fondest dream and, the morning after, your worst nightmare. She’s sweet and sublimely submissive. She’s powerful and fully in charge. She promises safety but danger lurks in her eyes.
A succubus is a sexual vampire, a shape-shifting temptress who steals the life force from her victim—but what a way to go! Some say she visits her victims in their dreams; others say she seduces them in the flesh. In Seductress, award-winning editor D. L. King has crafted a singularly sexy and mysterious compilation that will have you lying in bed all night wondering who might visit. You’ll enjoy threesomes and moresomes in Evan Mora’s fiendish “Star-Crossed,” which casts Romeo and Juliet as the undead cruising for pretty young lovers through the centuries. “Be careful what you wish for” comes true in Angela Caperton’s tale when “The Sorcerer’s Catch” has the allure of a dominatrix demon lover. We journey down to Hell in Kannan Feng’s enticing story of the Queen of Lust, who captures her most desired prey in “Before a Fall.” Supernaturally sensual and utterly captivating, the fantasy lovers in Seductress will whisk you where you’ve never been before.
With stories by Aurelia T. Evans, Kaysee Renee Robichaud, Elizabeth Brooks, Michael M. Jones, Kannan Feng, V. K.
