Review of ‘Secret Masquerade’ by Anne Hagan

Mel is my favourite character from my favourite series – The Morelville Mysteries. So when I discovered that Anne Hagan had written an erotic short featuring the sexy sheriff, I just had to have it. 

The story piqued my interest right away. It had just the right amount of tension and mystery . The writing was wonderfully descriptive and enticed me further into the tale. I was desperate to know where it was going. The erotic teases were so well done and blended in perfectly with the mystery element . It was compelling.  And so, so hot!

I loved this story. It captured Halloween to a  T.  But for me having Sheriff Mel Crane in an erotic situation was amazing. I’ve been waiting a long time for this and Anne Hagan didn’t disappoint. Brilliant!

Review of ‘Hard Body’ by Renee Roman

Hard body by Renee Roman is a short erotic story that has some beautiful emotional moments. Sharon’s been taking care of her sexual needs, but it’s more fun with a partner. Will she ever get it on with the object of her fantasies? This was a lovely story that took time to get to know the characters. I enjoyed it and would like more of these ladies.

Review of ‘The Lucky One’ by R Byrne

I enjoy reading short stories and find that erotica works really well in this form. ‘The Lucky One’ is an erotic BDSM short story by new writer R. Byrne. This is one spankingly hot story. The author ramps up the tension and the heat level until the crescendo. She makes me believe in the passion between her characters and I’m left in no doubt that they know exactly what turns them on. A highly erotic story that made me want to read more from this particular author.

Review of ‘Wild Rides: And Other Lesbian Erotic Adventures’ by Sacchi Green

Sacchi Green at her erotic best! The main thing I took away from this collection was the sheer high quality of the writing. Sacchi Green shows us that erotica can be skilfully and beautifully written. Her stories are imaginative, perceptive and varied. The sex is intensely erotic and the hottest one can imagine. She can surprise the reader, take them places they did not dare imagine. I especially enjoyed ‘Carved in Stone’, a prison story that slowly built to a highly-charged sexual encounter that was off-the-scale. ‘Jessebel’ intrigued and surprised me and was filled was such longing. ‘Gargoyle Lovers’ set in Paris was a fantastically frantic and desperate sexual encounter in a new place for lovers who know each other so well. I thoroughly enjoyed this anthology – but I wouldn’t expect anything else from Sacchi Green

Review of ‘Escape to Pleasure’ by Victoria Villasenor and Sandy Lowe

‘Escape to Pleasure’ is an enticing collection of erotic stories on the theme of travel. Victoria Villasenor and Sandy Lowe are skilled editors and have brought together a perfect mix of hot and steamy stories sure to please. I enjoyed all of the stories but I particularly enjoyed Aurora Rey’s ‘The Lodge’, as the cosy Winter setting contrasted so well with the heat of a very sexy story. Her characters interested me so much that I wouldn’t mind meeting them again. I also loved Brit Ryder’s ‘Mistakes Happen’. This tale of a luggage mix-up and the resulting bedroom antics was perfect. Her wickedly sexy al fresco encounter was truly sublime. But Jeannie Levig’s ‘A Fantasy Getaway’ was my favourite. It is set in a lesbian resort and is beautifully written. She ramps up the sexual tension like a pro. It is so, so well done and the heat is off the scale. I can highly recommend this anthology.

Review of ‘The Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 3: A Cleis Anthology’ by Sacchi Green

les erot 3

Sacchi Green has exquisite taste when it comes to picking short stories. In ‘Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year Volume 3’ she has chosen some wonderful erotic stories. I was especially impressed by ‘Fearless’ by TC Mill. Jenny and Tessa find a way to reconnect after a difficult time for both of them. It was powerful and intense and so hot. The emotion astounded me. I also loved Pascal Scott’s ‘The Night Shift, which left me with a smile on my face. And RG Emanuelle’s story ‘The Auction’ is smoking! Rarely have I read anything quite so satisfying. And excellent collection and highly recommended. Due out December 11th (USA) and January 6th (UK).

Review of ‘The Taste of Her Volume 2’ by Jess Lea

taste2

This second volume of erotic short stories by Jess Lea is well written and engaging. The stories are varied in intensity but always have just the right mix of heat and storytelling. I enjoyed ‘A Different View’ the most – a story about taking a different outlook and how that can change things.

Review of ‘The Taste of Her’ by Jess Lea

The enticing cover of’ Taste of Her’ is a good indication of what is in store for the reader. It is a very sexy, well written anthology of erotic tales guaranteed to satisfy. I particularly enjoyed ‘A Literary Lesson’ where a poet has a very interesting encounter that made an author reading unexpectedly hot. I look forward to more in the same vein.

Review of ‘Roll With Me’ by Elizabeth Andre

A well written erotic romance that deals with the tricky issue of whether one should tell a new lover everything early on in a relationship. Chloe has MS but since it’s not always that obvious she chooses not to tell Rachel. Is that a mistake and can they survive the deception? Elizabeth Andre knows how to write well rounded characters and very hot situations. I liked Chloe and could see why she made the decisions she did. Her attraction to Rachel was intense and that really came across. I enjoyed it.
