More About the Author

Called a trollop with a laptop by East Bay Express, Alison Tyler is naughty and she knows it.

Over the past 20+ years, Ms. Tyler has written more than 25 explicit novels, including Tiffany Twisted, Melt With You, and Blue Valentine. Her novels and short stories have been translated into Japanese, Dutch, German, Italian, Norwegian, and Spanish. Her stories have appeared in more than 100 anthologies, and she's been published by such stellar editors as Violet Blue, Stephen Elliott, and Zane. She is a contributing editor for Penthouse Variations.

When not writing saucy short stories, Ms. Tyler edits erotic anthologies, including Kiss My Ass, Smart Ass, Bad Ass, and Happily Ever Anal. She has recently published several solo collections: Alison on Top: Femdom Erotica to Make You Beg and Alison on the Rocks: Kinky Bar Stories with a Twist.

Ms. Tyler is loyal to coffee (black), lipstick (red), and tequila (straight). She has tattoos, but no piercings; a wicked tongue, but a quick smile; and bittersweet memories, but no regrets. She believes it won't rain if she doesn't bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto: You can sleep when you're dead. She chooses Led Zeppelin over the Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.

In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of 20 years, but she still can't choose just one perfume.

Format: Paperback
I found myself really enjoying this erotic collection. It's actually probably one of my favorite BDSM-themed erotica collections now. What makes it so nice is that it doesn't just focus on the erotic restraint - while most of the stories do include some sort of aspect of erotic restraint, it also includes aspects like impact play or power exchange relationships. This means you won't find yourself bored by the same action over and over like some other "themed" books cause.

"Slave to Love" is 224 pages long with twenty stories which means that each story is about 11 pages long. This is definitely a bit longer than most average erotica collections. I found it worked well for this novel. You're going to find yourself absorbed in the character's actions and feelings so you'll get more involved when the character finds themselves in the middle of some hot sex - this isn't to say that the story is 5 pages plot and 6 pages sex - it's not. For the most part, the majority of the story ends up being some hot seduction/foreplay while the last couple pages ends up being the "actual" sex.

I think a lot of people would find themselves enjoying this collection. Since it does include some more hardcore stories while still including some softer ones, this will appeal to anyone who is even mildly interested in Dominance/submission, impact play, or being restrained. The stories are all amazingly well-written, and while there were a couple that weren't as arousing, I can't say that I actually found any to be boring or unarousing. If you are interested in some sexy erotica with a plot that keeps you involved for each story, I'd highly recommend "Slave to Love". I honestly couldn't put it down once I picked it up.

The stories in this book encompass a good range kinks & fetish. Figging, mild puppy play, introduction to BDSM, bondage and impact play. A lot of heterocentric couplings, however.

While each story is unique, there is a lot for people to take away from it. Beginners might very well find themselves with new avenues they want to explore.

A great set of short stories to stir the blood. They are best read by a partner or by you to yours. It is a great way to get in the mood or just send yourself off to dreamland with the right frame of mind.
