Something Wicked and Wanton This Way Comes
Award-winning novelist and erotica writer Kristina Wright goes over the river and through the woods to find the sexiest fairy tales ever written. Playfully seductive, supernaturally sensual, and darkly erotic, Fairy Tale Lust showcases clever twists to classic tales and introduces new stories inspired by the ever-popular genre. Here, a walk in the forest is likely to lead to an erotic encounter with a mysterious stranger or the silver light of a full moon might illuminate an orgy of sensual delights. Top erotica contributors deliver sizzling work, including Janine Ashbless, Delilah Devlin, Shanna Germaine, and Saskia Walker.
Fairy tales captivate, inspire, and entertain. Most anyway. These aren’t for the faint or heart or small children.
I knew when I saw Erotic Fantasies for Women that this wasn’t the average set of bedtime stories. Read in one sitting, this book definitely held my attention. There were tales that singed my fingers, some that made me think and others that I wished wouldn’t end. But don’t think this book is for the faint of heart. Some stories are guaranteed to shock and titillate and not with a requisite HEA.
There were a handful that really stuck out for me. Among them was How the Little Mermaid Got Her Tail Back by Andrea Dale. I loved the trust factor in this story. It wasn’t a run of the mill bdsm story. The combination of work and pleasure is great. Phillip not only trusted Ella to create the perfect atmosphere for his restaurant, but knew her well enough to give her fantasies a reality. I squirmed, sighed, and needed a cool drink for this one.
The heroine in Mind Your Peas and Qs by Allison Wonderland had me cracking up. I can’t disclose too much information, but imagine finding your Prince Charming because he passed a test. Simple and expected. But the twists Ms. Wonderland put into this story are great. Mother and Father are almost stereotypical parents, not wanting their daughter soiled while not completely knowing the truth. I loved how the princess wanted to test out the merchandise before she bought (the visual inspection of his rear end) and her frankness throughout the story.
There were so many other stories it would take far too much room to cover them, but be assured that if you're looking for one hot read, you won't be disappointed if you pick this up. It's a book I’d recommend to my friends for bedtime reading because it’s guaranteed to make you warm and tingly all over. I give this collection 3.5 cherries.
