About the Author
The artist, Pataniska honed her skills while working at an animation studio. Since then, she's turned her abilities to illustration and graphic design with a decidedly erotic twist!
This collection follows a popular Sweetmeats pattern of compiling the work of five talented writers, each submitting an erotic story based on a theme, in this case water.

“Melusine,” Janine Ashbless’s incredible adaptation of the traditional Breton fairy tale, sinks the reader into an older accountant’s sexual fascination with his much younger wife–the beautiful, mysterious Lucy, whose only unbreakable rule is that she must be alone on Friday nights through noon the next day. But this is no idyllic, innocent fairy tale. Ms. Ashbless weaves brutal longing into the fabric of the story, so that it’s literally drenched with tension, sex and misunderstanding.
On the other side of the spectrum is Justine Elyot’s lovely tale, “Naiad,” a tale about a girl on vacation who allows herself to be “captured” by a mysterious stranger for an afternoon. The give and take between fantasy and reality is lovely as the protagonist “indulges her kinky side” by willfully disobeying her captor’s instructions to his, (and her own), delight. And I can’t review this collection without mentioning Vina Green’s haunting fable, “A Divine Solution,” a poignant, literary and achingly hot account of one woman’s lush sexuality amid a literal and spiritual drought.
And then, of course, there was Primula Bond’s gorgeous contribution, the sexy, cinematic romp of a story called “The Pool Party.” As I was reading it, I kept envisioning French and Italian films staring Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, with exotic beauties and temperamental men in steeped in decadence…but more on that lovely piece in one moment.
Drenched contains some of the highest quality literary pornography that I’ve read in a very long time. And I do mean “literary pornography,” for as beautifully written and literate as these stories are, they are gorgeously and unapologetically pornographic, depicting the joys and complications of sex, dominance and submission in ways that are everything from fleetingly incidental to fraught with consequence. It was an absolute pleasure to read and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
