Publisher Comments:

The Ultimate Romance Reader

Sensual, sweet and a little bit spicy, this collection of amorous stories is a romance treasure, filled with fun surprises and unusual twists. Award-winning editor Kristina Wright explains, “I love a good love story, especially when it’s one wrapped up in a sexy red bow. Erotic love, the kind that makes your heart beat faster and does exciting things a bit farther south, is what xoxo is all about.” With over thirty top erotic romance writers, including Sommer Marsden, Kathleen Tudor, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Elizabeth Coldwell, Saskia Walker and Cheyenne Blue, these lustfully literary short stories are meant to tease you and please you. xoxo is a veritable candy sampler of delectable delights and inspired ideas to share at home with your sweetie.

Review:

"Three-dozen short-short erotic stories depict brief moments of sexual intensity in a collection that editor Wright (Duty and Desire) describes as 'a box of multi-hued candy hearts.' The majority of the stories feature established heterosexual lovers, reconnecting, as in Sommer Marden's 'Soldier Boy'; repeating the things they love best, as in Rachel Kramel Bussel's 'Puzzle Pieces'; or spicing it up, as in Elizabeth Coldwell's 'Miss Organized.' A few queer stories, like Sacchi Green's charming 'Gargoyle Lovers,' and a few casual first times, like Veronica Wilde's 'One Hot Wet Night,' broaden the focus a bit but seem slightly out of place. Well-composed vignettes with just enough setup provide a little inspiration for the reader who is hopping into bed alone, or for lovers reading aloud to one another to kick off a night together.
