With historical, contemporary, and futuristic backdrops, this outrageously diverse collection of original stories explores every conceivable variation of BDSM erotica-from knitting circles to the Titanic to a retelling of The Little Mermaid. Featuring all-new stories by Meljean Brook, Jean Johnson, Bettie Sharpe, Jill Myles, Margaret Rowe, Sara Thorn, and more, this book has everything a reader could hope for in an erotic romance.
Check out the anthology’s official homepage for details and excerpts, or the list below for links to the talented authors who’ve contributed their stories. In my own story, Overtaken, a young woman pushes her ex-boyfriend–and herself–to come to terms with what it is they both really desire.
Cameron Belle, Into The Red – An m/m futuristic gladiator story between a med technician and fighter.
Meljean Brook, Rescue Me – Hot, the Meljean Brook way.

Jessica Clare, Bachelorette Party – A bachelorette’s last fling.
J.K. Coi, Caged – A painful love story where, in the dark, nothing and everything has changed.
Christine D’Abo, Bruised Ego – A man in control finds a release in pain.
Lily Daniels, Kiss of Life – Survivor’s guilt following the Titanic, with a little revenge for spice.
