Maxim Jakubowski's view...

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

US-based Anglophile Szereto is one of the better anthologists in the literary erotica field and her standards are always set high, so any new collection she edits is definitely something to look forward to. Having offered us volumes of twisted travel yarns, subversive fairy tales and flesh-baring heroic fantasy, she now tackles the gothic and the dark side of life and sensual dreams. With generous encomiums by leading hot romance authors like Kate Douiglas and Rachel Caine, this literally hot off the press volume offers fourteen sizzling variations exploring the flip side of submission and seduction, many from new talents who all display a wicked imagination to revisit fantasy and the supernatural with often startling and sexy new perspectives. Pretty hot stuff.

Synopsis

Darker Edge of Desire by Mitzi Szereto

Love, passion and sex ...it's all here in Darker Edge of Desire. Gothic literature has always possessed a dark attraction ripe with the promise of the forbidden and the sensual. In Darker Edge of Desire, Mitzi Szereto takes the sexualized Gothic and ratchets it up a few notches into the danger zone, opening a door into the darker side of lust and love that only the courageous dare to venture through.

Venturing even farther into the world of mystery and romance than she did in the critically acclaimed Red Velvet and Absinthe, Szereto creates an atmosphere with a distinct Gothic flavor where we explore our more forbidden desires. In these tales, love and lust (and kink!) know no boundaries, and all nature of beings --vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts, and succubae -- abound. Tread carefully, danger and desire lie ahead!
