By Simply Erotic Reviews

This is a scintillating, titillating smorgasbord of truly entertaining tales. Embued with an incredible variety of paranormal manifestations and incarnations, these stories take us on an erotic maelstrom of weird and wonderful experiences that, usually – but not always – end up in significant sexual satisfaction.

The volume contains 20 short stories from some of the best modern erotica writers. Among the expected troop of ghosts, vampires and werewolves, we also encounter some unique and original phenomena, such as Peter Baltensperger’s “Uglies”, and J S Black’s “Mary”, the evil automaton. All of the tales are interesting and stimulating in their own way, Miranda Forbes having succeeded in selecting the most unusual and original portrayals of the strange, the scary, and the downright evil! From well-endowed familiars to counselling messages, from cleaning incubii to hot and horny highwaywomen, this collection delivers on all levels!

Whether you’re looking for a quick thrill to fill some free time at the office, or a little warmer before bed, this collection will keep you warm and wondering. I recommend reading it out loud to your partner – it has phenomenal results!

This is a set of 20 stories edited by Miranda Forbes. I love the variety of well written paranormal erotica Miranda has chosen, I didn’t feel you could write so many different stories in this one genre…well how wrong was I.

The cover is tasteful and sexy, with no lewd images, what I love about this if you left it lying around you would not know in the first instance its an erotic book unless you picked it up and read the back.

I absolutely loved this book to the point I couldn’t put it down at the end of each story, it was exactly the style and genre that I adore reading or watching on TV.

I completely blame this book for 2 sleepless nights where I kept getting to the end of 1 story and thinking “just one more..!”. Sooo tired……..

It was an excellent mixture of paranormal erotica each with some brilliant authors, the sex was quite vanilla compared to what I usually enjoy but the stories were so well written I loved each and every story. I didn’t think I would say that out of 20 stories that I would enjoy each and everyone, obviously some more than others, but each author drew me into their own world to their last page. Lots of the writing had some great twists and turns and I assumed I would be able to guess the ending on most stories, I was very wrong.

There is a wonderful mix Demons, ghosts, highway woman, inccubus, witches and vampires with a werewolf thrown in for good measure, something for everyone who loves their fantasy. I have a passion for vampire stories, I love the whole dark and smouldering sexy, evil, scary thing which I find such a turn on and this was no exception.

I really find it hard to pick a favourite but I had a few which I have gone back to read again which is very unusual for me, I loved the writing of authors Scarlet Blue, Kat Black and Tabitha Rayne, plus an excellent short story from KD Grace who is so well known for her book The initiation of Miss Holly. and her latest Pet Shop.

I have never been a lover of short stories as I usually love to fall into a big novel and lap it up till the very end and not stop reading, but these have changed my mind completely; the beauty with short stories, each is only approximately 5-6 pages long and I can grab a story to read in a coffee break or a few hours before sleep ..or the whole night if you are me..lol!

It also gives you a huge taster of some amazing writers out there I would not have known about. it has made me thirsty for more.

Each story you will see are mostly male and female; so if you are new to reading erotica and love your fantasy paranormal you really will love this book, but don’t let that put you off if prefer things more rampant, as I generally like my sex with more wild fetish but they are all so well written and each a compulsive sexy read, I thoroughly enjoyed each story and it will stay in mind for a long time.

I absolutely recommend Dark Desires; fall into the world of fantasy, lose yourself amongst the realms of this world and the next for a few hours, get away from real life just for awhile.
