It's a wild and thundery night. Inside a ramshackle old manor house, a beautiful young girl lies asleep in bed. At the window, a figure watches... Continue »

Can't Get Enough

What happens when love meets sex? Erotic love is that delicious blend of hearts and minds and bodies, a combination of sweet and intimate, surging and sensual. Sex by itself—hot, steamy, passionate sex—is one of the best things this life has to offer. And truly, so is love: first love, new love, love that has stood the test of time, love that has conquered every obstacle. These incendiary stories open a window into new relationships, such as Jeanette Grey's yoga-bound characters in "Teach Me," and long-term relationships like Dominic Santi's happily (and lustily) married husband and wife in "Kiss of Peace." Each of these masterfully written tales contains the essence of true romance: a central love story and an emotionally-satisfying, optimistic ending. Award-winning romance writer and editor Kristina Wright, with her cast of terrific romance authors, have crafted stories that touch the hearts and minds of readers, and can inspire real-life couples.

Review:

"Readers of romance won't find their familiar genre conventions in these 17 stories, which fall much more on the romantic erotica end of the spectrum. A violinist plays his lover like an instrument in Torrance Sené's 'Adagio.' A woman wants to 'be the meat' for her butcher in Kristina Lloyd's 'Cutting Out Hearts,' not a 'little cake' as she is for her husband. In Victoria Blisse's 'Chocolate Cake and You,' a woman on a diet is tempted by a tasty dessert and an ex-lover. Catherine Paulssen writes tenderly of a handcuffed bride's encounter 'Three Nights Before the Wedding.' Donna George Storey's sweet 'Flowering' begins as a woman watches her neighbor, recalling their one-night stand. Old friends without benefits reunite and change that equation in the surprisingly wistful 'Another Chance' by Erobintica. There's little emotional development or depth, but plenty of sexy fun."

Synopsis:

So what happens with love meets sex? Erotic love is that delicious blend of hearts and minds and bodies, a combination of sweet and dirty, romantic and sexy. Sex by itself—hot, steamy, sensual sex—is one of the best things this life has to offer. But then, so is love. First love, new love, renewed love; love that has stood the test of time, love that has conquered every obstacles. It doesnt matter if its a new relationship, such as Jeanette Greys yogo-bound characters in “Teach Me,” or a long-term relationship like Dominic Santis happily (and lusty) married couple in “Kiss of Peace”— the combination of sex and love is incendiary. The collection is split between familiar authors and authors new to the genre. Best-selling author Kate Pearce delivers a scorching hot fantasy that takes place in a department store dressing room in "The Price of Love." Teresa Noelle Roberts has a sweetly erotic story about parents waiting for their adopted son in "Waiting for Ilya" and Geneva King's "Last Hundred Days" recounts the last hundred days between a divorcing couple.
