Savor Your Desire
What do you crave? The best erotic romance is all about fantasies of love that whet your sensual appetite and delight your most delicate tastes. Hungry For More combines rich and daring stories of our not-so-everyday contemporary lives. A whole new world opens up for Gloria after she reads a trashy romance novel and discovers that she wants nothing more than the mindbending pleasures of a good “Submissive,” by Jacqueline Applebee. Middle-aged Mira flirts with the fulfillment of long-held, secret fantasies in “Just Once,” by Jocelyn Dex. A shy makeup artist experiences the power of “Red Lipstick” firsthand at a party in Erzabet Bishop’s moving tale. With Hungry for More, award-winning editor Rachel Kramer Bussel has curated a collection of delectable stories that will fill your imagination and satisfy your hunger for love, pleasure and adventure.
"Twenty-one tales of women pursuing and getting what they want make up this steamy collection. Veteran editor Bussel touches on a variety of common fantasies, including threesomes and moresomes, bondage, and voyeurism. Olivia Archer's 'Kitchen Slut,' about a woman aroused by kitchen utensils, is a surprising treat. Jeremy Edwards's 'Tickle Day,' is delightfully playful while Valerie Alexander's 'Jailbait Torch Song' is unexpectedly poignant. Brandy Fox's 'Organically Grown' has a clever twist, though the build-up is bland. On the downside, Greta Christina's 'Craig's List' reads like a summary of someone else's spicy story, and Rose de Fer's 'The Instructor' blurs consent issues enough to leave readers questioning its presence in the collection. With many more hits than misses, all long enough to titillate and short enough to leave the reader craving more, this is a satisfying feast for the erotica fan. (Sept.)"
