‘One Scoop or Two?’ Story blurb

Keeley’s boyfriend, Darren, had promised to take her on a weekend away.  Anticipating a romantic city break she is disappointed to discover what he has in mind is a trip to a traditional seaside town from his childhood.  But things take a distinctive turn for the better when the couple accidently get themselves locked into an ice cream parlour.  Ice cream sundaes will never be the same again for Keeley!

Story extract

Tiramisu.  Black bitter espresso coffee, sweet masala wine, soft soaked sponge, oodles of whipped cream sprinkled with cocoa.  It was her favourite desert.  Darren certainly knew how to hit the right button.  All of those flavours wrapped up in this ice cool creamy texture as the sensational tastes exploded in her mouth.  It was a flavour so rich and sensuous it sent a shock wave right to her brain…and straight back down to her cunt.  She sucked the finger that gently explored the inside of her mouth licking every morsel of the ice cream off.  Darren looked at her expression and saw it drift off into the realms of ice cream delight.  He recognised the look well; it was an expression of serene beatitude, as the magnificent indulgence of pure Italian gelato hit home.

“I told you it was ice cream heaven,” he whispered.

“Mmmmm,” she murmured.

Reviews for Smut by the Sea

Sh Women’s Erotic Emporium web site

With days becoming darker, the air becoming cooler and the weather becoming considerably wetter, autumn is now definitely in full swing. Gone are those heady summer nights, sand dusted day trips and sticky vest tops. It all seems so long ago that we were basking in glorious sunshine but, fear not, there is a remedy to the winter blues in the form of Smut By The Sea. A scorching anthology edited by Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse, full to the brim of steamy sea-side stories guaranteed to titillate, tease and get your cockles thoroughly warmed!

Before you even delve into the pages you start to feel a warm glow in the form of a curvaceous blonde bombshell coyly gazing out at you from a warm, sandy beach. It’s something reminiscent of a saucy seaside postcard, apart from you get to delve in and look around to see what happens next.

As for the actual content – well, every page left this Sh! Girl very hot and bothered (which did get me some very strange looks during my commute to work and back). Each smutty story is fantastically written, sun-soaked and seriously steamy. Some of the best erotica writers in the biz have contributed to their tantalizing tales: Lexie Bay, KD Grace, Justine Elyot and Tamsin Flowers to name a small few! There’s something for everyone between the pages of this filth-tastic seaside anthology: Pirates, sexy surfers, Fairground workers, mythical sea creatures…whatever tickles your fancy!

My absolute favourite story has to be “Swashbuckling” by Lily Harlem. Sex and pirates are always a winning combination (especially when you picture the character as Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack…oo-er, Sir!).

Although we are taken off to places more exotic, the whole feel of the book is quintessentially British with its quaint, run-down seaside towns, sticky melting ice-cream cones and fleeting fairgrounds. You can almost smell the salty air and taste the freshly battered cod & chips.

If you like your erotica fun, sexy and light-hearted then Smut By The Sea is definitely the book for you.

Freedom. Sensuality.  Unsullied nature. Deliciously tacky bars and souvenir shops. Succulent fried fish and icy beer. Scalding sun, gritty sand, salt on the breeze and on your skin. A sense that everyday rules are suspended, that almost anything can happen.

This is what I think of, when someone suggests a seaside holiday. After reading this delightful erotic collection, I know I’m not alone. Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse have assembled more than a dozen luscious tales that celebrate life and love alongside the ocean – tales of temptation and transgression, self-indulgence and sweet release.

Most of the authors in the book are from the U.K., and at least half the stories are set in British ocean resort towns like Scarborough, Brighton and Bridlington, with their boardwalks, fun fairs, and ice cream parlors. Lexie Bay’s “Last Chance Summer” chronicles a young woman’s torrid fling with a well-muscled carnival attendant, who gives her a ride she’ll remember all her life – even as she moves to London and into the adult world. In “Ice Cream Kisses,” M.A. Stacie’s harried heroine enjoys a thrilling, sticky encounter inside an unconventional ice cream vendor’s closed kiosk.  There’s more ice cream, of an Italian flavor, in Slave Nano’s “One Scoop or Two”. I don’t normally find food sex arousing, but imagining a cold stainless steel ice cream spoon being smoothed over hot, sensitized breasts definitely did the trick.

Lucy Felthouse takes us back to the fun fair with “Dodging”, in which a gal sneaks away from her friends, determined to seduce the God-like bumper car attendant. Tanith Davenport’s story “I Like It Wet” is another Scarborough romp, this time among the waves. Victoria Blisse shows us Scarborough in a less sunny, more pensive, but equally sensual mood, in “A Proper British Seaside Holiday,” with a rainy tryst atop an open-air bus. In “Of Moon and Sea,” Cassandra Dean paints an image of Scarborough in an earlier time – perhaps Victorian or Edwardian. Heroine Olivia throws propriety to the winds as she surrenders to her new husband.

In counterpoint to these classic holiday romps, K.D. Grace offers a haunting portrayal of an encounter between a woman and a selkie in her exquisite tale “Skin”. This is perhaps the most serious story in the collection, ripe with mystery and bittersweet echoes of loss. Another delicious oddity is Cynthia Rayne’s “Communing with the Mighty Neptune,” an arch fantasy about a woman and a very well-endowed merman. I loved this funny but very sexy story.

Paying tribute to a pagan god is never an easy task. It’s not like a simple Christian ceremony where you have to go to the local church, pray, and you’re all set. No, there’s always a ritual that needs to be translated from some archaic language. Then there is the obscure ingredient list. Of course the ritual must be done at just the right time on just the right night. And then there’s the outfit that must be worn, or rather, lack of outfit.

“Swashbuckling,” by Lily Harlem instantiates one of my personal favorite fantasies: running off to sea with a black-haired, virile, and very kinky pirate. Surfing idyll “Against the Current,” by Heidi Champa, breaks the mold as the only gay story in the collection as well as the only one clearly set outside of England. It’s a bit too sandy for my tastes, but sultry nevertheless. Finally Justine Elyot’s “Love in the Low Season” is a pitch-perfect invocation of a Tom-Jones-like crooner on a downward slide who gets a second chance with a former one-night stand.

Although I associate Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse  more with romance than erotica, many of the stories in Smut By The Sea celebrate the intensity of brief encounters as opposed to long-term relationships. Indeed, holidays by the sea often have the quality of stolen time, a reality separate from the drab world of work and commitment. The ocean constantly changes. You can’t hold on to the tide. And the love you find on the beach is meant to be savored and then released.

This was my first experience with a book published by House of Erotica. I was favorably impressed by the production. The pages were tinted a creamy peach color, which actually made them easier to read. Victoria Blisse leads off with a lively introduction, expounding on the book’s vision and defending the term “smut.” Author bios follow the stories. I always enjoy finding out more about the people behind the tales.

Another round of copyediting would have improved the book further. I did notice some typographical and grammar errors. However, they weren’t sufficiently common to really interfere with my enjoyment of the book.

In summary, Smut By The Sea is a light-hearted celebration of life, sex and salt water. If you can’t get to the beach in reality, it’s the next best thing.

I found this anthology a fantastically fun seaside romp full of top-notch writing talent. Its overall feel is one of escapism into a wilder world outside the normal rules and constraints of society. The excellent quality of the writing allows the reader to fully immerse themselves in the settings and stories.
Although a few of the stories are set in more exotic locations, the theme of the British seaside runs through the book. It is one of slightly faded glory, often tacky, tatty or quaint, but full of opportunities for vivid imagery that speaks to all the senses. There are the smells of fish and chips and sun cream, the noise of the fairgrounds and arcades, the taste of ice cream and salty seawater, the feel of sand between the toes or waves in the face. For British readers, there’s sure to be a touch of nostalgia for childhood holidays.
This is a real gem among erotic romance anthologies and I enjoyed escaping into its light-hearted world enormously.

A superb collection of seaside naughtiness, with some themes and ideas I expected and many I didn’t. I was really impressed by the variety in this collection, each story offers something a little unique. Definitely an Anthology to warm you up on the Beach before you slip back to the hotel room.

The British seaside experience is portrayed oh so wonderfully in this anthology. These shorts made me feel as if the authors had bottled the essence of the seaside and delivered it to me in a smutty little package! I could almost taste the strawberry ice cream, and hear the buzz of electric from the dodgems. Although I did have my favorite two stories–I’ll never look at dodgems and ice cream in the same way again–all the stories in this anthology had merit. I heartily recommend a read if you fancy some smut down on the pier or a private ice cream tasting ;) One of my favorite summer reads this year.

If you want to read a book that makes you feel like you are on vacation, then this one is it. Every single story in this anthology has what it takes to bring you instantly to the beach, or to whatever water side environs the author is writing about. From saucy ice cream vendors on the boardwalk to surprise ocean side dalliances, this anthology had me reading it over and over again. Good thing there will be a book two coming out soon! Just make sure you have a really big glass of ice water ready to go. These stories are smokin hot!
