About the Author

Sommer Marsden's been called "...one of the top storytellers in the erotica genre" (Violet Blue), "Unapologetic" (Alison Tyler), "...the whirling dervish of erotica" (Craig J. Sorensen),and "Erotica royalty..." (Lucy Felthouse for Blog Critics Books).

Her erotic novels include Boys Next Door, Restless Spirit, Learning to Drown and We Kill Dead Things. Sommer currently writes erotica and erotic romance for HarperCollins Mischief Books, Xcite Books, eXcessica, Ellora's Cave, Pretty Things Press and Resplendence Publishing. The wine-swigging, dachshund-owning, wannabe runner author writes work that runs the gamut from bondage to zombies to humor.

Some of the tales in this anthology of short erotica are downright raw, and every one lived up to the high standard I've come to expect from something with Ms. Marsden's name on it.

From the housewife surprised to discover her inner sword & sandal slut in Sommer's own Paradox, through the lovers dulling the pain of the hand they've been dealt in Willsin Rowe's Release, the main character in Alison Tyler's The Pick-Up Artist going above and beyond to meet his partner's needs on Valentine's Day, Shanna Germain's touching tale of boys being boys in Animals in Heat, and Parker Ford's naughty school girl seducing the sexy gym teacher in Don't Stand So Close To Me, these stories collectively explore the sizzling hot underbelly of erotic desire.

Y'all know I love Sommer. She's my favourite season. Also, one of my favourite editors. This collection, as is her style, is astoundingly real. Her choice of writers is impeccable. And each story will leave you wanting more, and more, and MORE. Some names in the line up were familiar to me, some were new, but all were amazing.

From the opening lines of Quinn Gabriel's Matinee, to the final kinky scene in Justine Elyot's Gentlemen's Relish, these stories are imaginative, and inventive, and will take little peeks into your fantasies with each breath.

While stories like Live At The Motel Six by Heidi Champa, and Release by Wilsin Rowe, leave little to the imagination, they also manage to spark it quite well. Hot, steamy, erotic, nasty and downright dirty, I am hard *giggle* pressed to pick a favourite.

I don't know how she does it over, and over again. But this is yet ANOTHER winner from Ms. Marsden.

While the stories are intense, consensuality is usually established early on (so more sensitive souls can relax and go with the scenarios). The stories in the second half tend to be a little more brusque in tone. There are a few minor typos, but I was often impressed by the amount of story development in the short word counts of each tale. I always wish for more m/m in anthologies like these, but Shanna Germain's "Animals In Heat" is a good example here. I would consider this anthology a 3.5-star read for my personal tastes, but I'm bumping the grade up because of the difficult balance it strikes.

If you like it rough, then this is a collection of short erotic tales you don't want to miss!

Each short story has a little something for everyone. Even if you're not into certain forms of entertainment, you'll enjoy the read each author entertained.

Erotic? Down to the very heart of eroticism!
