Spirit Lovers is a collection of five erotic short stories based around the supernatural. The first, The Incubus Candle by Fulani is my favourite. Without giving two much away, Lauren inadvertently summons a couple of incubi, who are there to see to her every sexual need. And they certainly do that… I found this the most erotic of the stories due to the whole two-men-one-woman thing, and because the writing was so sensual. A great start to the anthology.

The Greed Jar is a contemporary story, but with a touch of the ancient myth about it. The protagonist, Alice, collects unusual items for a living. She’s finally tracked down something she’s been looking for for a while – The Greed Jar. Unfortunately, though, a less than savoury person has made off with it, and Alice and her assistant Jim take off to catch the thief. Trouble is, the thief has fallen under the jar’s spell – which makes people insatiably greedy. Continue reading
As a fan of vampires and a fan of erotica, something combining the two is always going to be high on my to-read list. Once Bitten is no exception. I believe Once Bitten is classed as a novel, but it’s a fairly short novel. That’s not a bad thing, the story fits well into its word count, any shorter and it’d have felt rushed, any longer and potentially it would have felt too padded out. The story is action packed from beginning to end.
Temptations 1 contains 7 short stories with something to appeal to most fans of well written erotica.
Whether your fantasy house-hunt is something like the one described by Elizabeth Cage in Bliss, or the daydream fantasies of Cyanne, there is something to make your blood run warmer.
The stories are all well written, with good characterisation, such as the repulsive teacher described in Kitti Bernetti’s ‘The School Reunion’ where the once ugly duckling has become a Swan and uses her feminine wiles to seduce, and then humiliate her former teacher. There is the taboo busting Confession by Kristina Wright, where a girlfriend services her boyfriend’s own father, or in the Window Cleaner’s boy, where all eyes are on the young man who cleans the office’s windows, but the narrator in Carmel Lockyer’s story only has eyes for his older, but clearly virile colleague.
In Confidante, Beverly Langland’s characters are looking for a new Slave and a Master, and the story tells of their auditioning each other, whilst in the collection’s closing story Two’s Company, Georgia Brown describes how the fantasy may not be everything that the man in the relationship wants or needs.
There is heat of all types in this collection, with none of the stories outstanding their welcome, or boring the audience. Hunt it down, it may make you think, as well as making you feel slightly warm.
Primula Bond has been in the erotica business for some years. Amongst her successes are three books; Behind the Curtain, Club Creme and Country Pleasures. Previously published by Black Lace and Nexus, Primula’s latest outing, Random Acts of Lust comes from Xcite Books.
