"The hotel room is a fantastic setting around which to assemble a short stories (erotica or otherwise), and Suite Encounters (if you'll forgive my word play here) provides above-and-beyond service."
Glorified Love Letters
"This is a classy dirty book, and it is perfect for anyone who prefers erotica with more than just the basics."
San Francisco Book Review

Perfect 'guilty pleasure' reading, Suite Encounters is certain to be a welcome read by anyone who has every engaged in (or fantasized about) an erotic encounter in a hotel room of their own!
Midwest Book Review
"Suite Encounters is a fantastic collection, with a range of stories and characters I rarely encounter in an anthology. The theme is tighthotels, which our editor lovingly discusses in her introduction as a kind of erotic tabula rasa. Taking a narrow theme and collecting authors who can spin that theme into such a wide range of stories is a mark of a great editor, and Rachel Kramer Bussel does just that."
