^ Vox


Baker has written a novel that remaps the territory of sex--solitary and telephonic, lyrical and profane, comfortable and dangerous. Written in the form of a phone conversation between two strangers, Vox is an erotic classic that places the author in the first rank of Americ

Vox is the novella length discussion between Abby and Jim, two relatively lonely people inspired, late one night, to call a sex phone line to make a connection with someone, anyone. They find each other, and as the novel progresses, through a series of neatly spaced erotic stories, they begin to develop a friendship, marvelling at the strange wonders of technology, the phone, and how it could bring two people together who would never otherwise meet.

The entire story is in dialogue, with only a very few 'he said' and 'she said's to allow us to remember just who is speaking - which due to the quality of the writing and characterisation is rarely necessary. At first, Jim is mostly interested in one thing, but early on he realises that he has found someone who is perhaps worth more of a time investment than a 'normal' call to this particular chatline, and for a very long time, there is only very minor sex talk. They discuss the little oddities of life that everyone discusses in quiet...

Slave Island

Lured by the promise of an all-expense paid dream vacation, Julianna Beckett is kidnapped and held captive on an isolated island. Daily whippings, bondage and intense sexual training are just part the brutal regimen of erotic torture and forced submission, as Julianna is pre

Slave Island is Stunning!
I like Claire Thompson's stories, but even so, Slave Island was a fairly big departure for me. Erotic Horror? Non-consensual sex? Sounds pretty rough, and it is. But this story also has a raw power to it and shows that even amongst great evil, the human spirit can, and does, prevail. Well, that and I had it on good authority that it was a stunning story. It most certainly is that.
Slave Island is not a story for everyone: But for those who dare, and who are open to the underlying message, then you will find yourself richly rewarded.

I think that one of the things that really affected me the most is that, no matter how brutally she was treated, Julianna was determined to survive and remain intact; she would not let evil win. And you will discover that evil has more than one face; that alone is reason to fear.

That's not to say that Julianna never despaired, or that the story is, figuratively speaking, little more than makeup to cover a blemish. It's visceral,...

Fanny Hill: Memoirs Of A Woman of Pleasure (Wordsworth Classics)

Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, better known as Fanny Hill, is one of the most notorious texts in English literature. As recently as 1963 an unexpurgated edition was the subject of a trial, yet in the eighteenth century John Cleland's open celebration of sexual enjoyment was

Laughing All the Way to Bed
Well, here it is - maybe the most famous dirty book in the history of the English language. And it's dirty, all right, but what it mostly is, is hilarious.

Mind you, in some respects "Fanny Hill" is quite a good book too. We'll get to the reasons for that in due course. Nevertheless, I found it difficult to get through more than a few pages without laughing. Why? Because the author can't seem to come right out and say what he means, but has to describe it in the most strained, outlandish metaphors.

John Cleland came up with this story back in the early Hanoverian period, twenty to thirty years before the American Revolution, so I can't say what variety of dirty words he may have had access to, but you won't believe the ways he has his narrator, Miss Hill, describe a man's "engine" without actually naming it. The same goes for the corresponding parts of a woman's body, of course, and the narrative tends to describe two people having sex in similarly...

Two out of three ain't bad
Since the stories have been summarized very well in the two spotlight reviews, I'll just say what I thought of each one.

Turn Up the Heat by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I never thought that I would see the day when a Sherrilyn Kenyon story was the worst in a collection, but in this case it's true. Turn Up The Heat is another story about Sherrilyn Kenyon's BAD series, without having the agents at the forefront of the story. I didn't care for this story, but I'm not a big fan of the BAD series as a whole. It seemed to me that the way Allison and Vince fell in bed together was a bit too easy, and the gun-toting, trash-talking girl she eventually morphed into is nothing like the heroine we were set up for in the beginning. In my opinion, Turn Up the Heat wasn't the best way to begin this collection, but the other two stories more than make up for its faults.

Hot and lovely - just how I like erotic romances
"Forbidden Heat" by Opal Carew is a very sexy and lovely erotic romance that left me happy and with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Danielle Rayne's quiet and simple life is about to change.
When she meets two of her former best friends, Jack and Trey, again, she realizes how much she missed their friendship. Trey and Jack were a pair when Danielle last met them and she always admired their great relationship. But when she learns that they broke up years ago she realizes that things have changed.
In college she was in love with both men but never did something about it. But now it's her chance to spend an exciting night with both of them.
What starts as a casual and very hot reunion soon changes when Danielle, Jack and Trey continue their unusual relationship and love finds it way into their hearts.

I enjoyed "Forbidden Heat" a lot. The characters are great and the relationship that develops between them is so fascinating, hot and also sweet.

More of Liam this time
This was a very fast read, a good mix of action and eroticism. I liked that we were almost always together with Liam and we could see all his insecurities. I was also interested in Aidan and his return to teaching. In the previous books, even if he wasn't the perfect bodyguard, I had the impression that he was embracing his new profession a little too smoothly.

Liam and Aidan are still very much in love, but unlike many couples in romance that become a sort of unit after beginning their relationship, both Liam and Aidan maintain their personality. Sometimes they behave like jerks, but this makes them so real in a very unusual situation.

I liked the ancient monastery setting more than the Tunis one, because I liked the idea of an enclosed space where trouble could arise. I felt that the cast of secondary characters of the first part of the book was interesting, but it was completely neglected in the second part. The arrival of Joey, Liam's best friend from the...

An exercise in frustration
I really wanted to love this book. It had all the elements I enjoy: strong alpha hero, an intelligent and strong heroine who has a submissive streak sexually, and a suspense plot to keep things interesting.

There were parts of this book I really enjoyed. I liked the hero and heroine a lot. Both characters were engaging and well-drawn, and on paper were ideal for each other. The problem is in the execution.

In what I'm guessing was an attempt to build sexual tension, the author kept the hero and heroine dancing around a mild flirtation for about the first 1/3 of the book. Now, I love sexual tension in erotic romances when its done well. One of my pet peeves is authors who have the h/h jump into bed right away without giving the reader a chance to want them there. Frankly, we don't see enough sexual tension in erotic romance, in my opinion. Unfortunately it wasn't done well in this book. The hero kept the heroine at arms length to the point of acting like a beta...

Too hot to read in public!
If you are a submissive, masochistic guy with fantasies of disempowerment, humiliation, and emasculation, this book will push all of your buttons. I made the mistake of starting to read it in a public place. When you have a book on your Kindle, you figure nobody can see what you are reading, so you figure "Why not?" Bad idea. This book is way too arousing to read in a public place.

An aspect I love about this book is that Patrick's submission to his wife Theresa is entirely consensual, but it feels every bit as exciting--if not more--than a nonconsensual fantasy. When Theresa comes home unexpectedly and catches her husband acting out a fantasy of crossdressing and bondage, she is angry at first. But when she quickly realizes that her huband's fantasies provide her with a lever to take complete control of their relationship, she seizes the opportunity.

The story feels nonconsensual because Patrick has a dual nature. On one level, he is a normal guy with a...

Outstanding For Lactation Lovers!
Sexual fetish about breast lactation, at its best! This is an extremely difficult genre to find in Japanese ero-manga much less English. This is an ambitious, multi page, feast for those of us who love the beauty of leaking, squirting and simply beautiful lactating women. Yes, I'll take them even in cartoon form. The art is arousing and story line nasty enough to keep you reading and not just looking. It moves past incest, which is quite popular in Japanese ero-manga, to more practical sexual situations involving full breasts. If you are the least bit into lactation for sexual gratification this is a must purchase.

Some great works by the Great Libertarian
This collection of works is an illuminating collection of Sade's best. The critical introductions are excellent, along with the massive chronology of Sade's life. Sade's letters and Last Will & Testament also give insight into one of France's most controversial literary minds.

The collection begins with "Dialogue between a priest and a dying man", perhaps the shortest, and least depraved, of his works. The dialogue is a concise evisceration of Judeo-Christian philosophy, advocating the supremacy and amorality of Nature.

"Philosophy in the Bedroom" follows, which is Sade at his most philosophically eloquent and sexually twisted. Every taboo is torn to pieces (sometimes literally) while the characters engage in philosophical dialogues about Nature, religion, politics, and, obviously, sex. There is a political treatise in the middle of the dialogues. The treatise is Sade at his most learned and compelling. Amid the erotic carnage, Sade displays himself...

Ah, where to start . . . First, I confess a bias toward this author's work. Her series Masters of the Shadowlands, is bar none, the best in the genre. There was a time when I got upset that she was writing something else instead of more "masters", but then I would read the other books.
