Cowboy Heat: Western Romance for Women by Delilah Devlin (Ed)Cowboy Heat: Western Romance for Women by Delilah Devlin (Ed)
Cleis Press, June 2014; ISBN-10: 1627780335

They may ride off into the sunset, but cowboys never go out of style. These manly men embody the fiercely independent, earthy alpha male and hero who isn’t afraid to show the gentle, nurturing side of his complex nature when faced with a woman in need. Even when he’s coated with dust from riding behind a herd of cattle or up to his knees in mud freeing a calf from a wallow, this stud still generates a lot of Cowboy Heat.

Delilah Devlin's Cowboy Lust was a sensation, hitting the top ten of romance books and generating a river of praise. Award-winning Devlin is back on the ranch with stories of rugged romantics, rough riders, and rope wranglers sure to satisfy any reader who craves the idea of that gruff, romantic hero, a man of few words but many moves. Cowboy Heat sits tall in the saddle, winning hearts and spurring readers to new heights of happiness.

A Touch of Steel: Erotic Tales of Warriors by ADR ForteA Touch of Steel: Erotic Tales of Warriors by ADR Forte
Circlet Press, 2014; ISBN: 978-1-61390-103-8 ebook

 Touch of Steel: Erotic Tales of Warriors includes six, brand new, original stories by A.D.R. Forte that weave science-fiction and fantasy with the erotic power of soldiers, hunters, and fighters of all kinds.

In “Immortality” Captain Trey Danner is awed by the mysterious and captivating new Colonel on base. Her legendary prowess in battle is a source of much speculation and rumor among the soldiers and the more intimately he comes to know his Colonel, the more Danner wonders if the stories are true– if perhaps she really is an immortal, unable to fall in battle.

“Fireblood” tells the story of would-be dragonslayer Jyl and her traveling party–consisting of wizard Revendris, Princess Elystra, and Ned a blacksmith–as they hunt for a dragon. But as they all continue on their mission, Jyl comes to learn more about her own desires and about her true nature than she could have ever imagined.

In “Eternal”, a warrior queen reflects on the various betrayals leading up to her cursed existence–the betrayal of her slain kinsman by submitting to his killer to keep the peace between their tribes and the betrayal of her new lover and her own word when she could no longer abide the passion she felt for her one-time enemy.

“The Knowledge of Joy” tells the story of an injured and bitter rakshasi is taken in by a kindly human hunter and surprised to discover a life of safety, comfort, and pleasure.

And finally in “Solstara” an ancient earthbound warrior takes in a soldier fallen from the stars and discovers enough common ground to sustain them for a lifetime–or more.

The Big Book of Submission: 69 Kinky Tales Paperback by Rachel Kramer Bussel (Ed)The Big Book of Submission: 69 Kinky Tales by Rachel Kramer Bussel (Ed)
Cleis Press, July 2014; ISBN-10: 1627780378

Submission takes many forms in this collection of 69 short stories, from straining in bondage to taking a spanking, being put on display, and beyond. By turns bratty and worshipful, these submissives will go to great lengths to fulfill their naughtiest fantasies and are rewarded splendidly by their masters and mistresses. A student returns to show his former teacher who’s really in charge, a photo shoot becomes an opportunity for erotic games, and a man revels in his wife’s past as a former dominatrix.

These brats, masochists, and hungry-for-sensation subs go above and beyond for the ones they adore, pushing themselves to new limits while their devious dominants put them through their paces. Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, these short stories sizzle with the tension of erotic power play, commands followed, and service willingly performed.

Can't Get Enough: Erotica for Women by Tenille Brown (Ed)Can't Get Enough: Erotica for Women by Tenille Brown (Ed)

Face it, fairy tales were always kind of kinky: from beautiful queens tied up in knots by wicked sorcerers to a wide variety of naughty and nice scenarios. Someone was always getting tied to a bed! In this new anthology of erotic romance fairy tales from the editor of the best-selling Fairy Tale Lust and Lustfully Ever After, the fairy tales are naughtier and have a BDSM twist.

Retellings of the classics are joined with clever original tales, making for a darkly sensual and intensely romantic collection. Cathy Yardley, author of Crave: The Seduction of Snow White, introduces this compilation of enticing out-of-this-world erotic romance.

Bound for Trouble: BDSM Erotica For Women by Alison Tyler (Ed)Bound for Trouble: BDSM Erotica For Women by Alison Tyler (Ed)
Cleis Press, July 2014; ISBN-10: 1627780270

Bound for Trouble is the tenth bondage-themed anthology for Alison Tyler, a veteran at collecting the very best BDSM stories for her readers’ pain-tinged pleasure. Bondage sends shivers (the really good kind) down spines. With Bound for Trouble, Tyler uncovered new jewels, glimmering examples of the ultimate in erotic writing. Every writer in this book focuses on a different facet of the bondage theme. Some characters use tools, some words, one uses paper chains.

There are male subs, femme doms, and more. But what these stories have in common is addiction. And fascination. And obsession. Plain and simple, bound for trouble.

In the third unforgettable book by New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase, Matthew Fisher—the best friend of Drew Evans from Tangled and Twisted—wants to settle down, but he’ll have to overcome the mistrust of the vividly unique Dee Dee Warren. Includes a bonus short story, Holy Frigging Matrimony!

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: girl meets player, they fall in love, player changes his ways. It’s a good story. But it’s not our story. Ours is a lot more colorful.

When I met Dee, I knew right away that she was special. When she met me, she thought I was anything but special—I was exactly like every other guy who’d screwed her over and let her down. It took some time to convince her otherwise, but it turns out I can make a convincing argument when sex is at stake.

You might know where this story’s headed. But the best part isn't where we ended up. It’s how we got there.

Lethe Press, October 2013; ISBN-10: 1590211162

Lambda Literary Award winner 2014

An erotic fairy tale from the acclaimed author of The Abode of Bliss and Deprivation.

In a Turkish prison on the Black Sea coast, a lifer known as Yamyam—the Cannibal—whiles away tedious days and nights retelling old folk tales to the other inmates. But on this day, as Yamyam and naïve young drug dealer Izzet clean the prison’s Turkish baths, Yamyam’s tale goes twisty—far removed from the stories he heard at his mother’s knee.

Yamyam’s tale of a prince and an enchanted fox is engineered for seduction, as young Izzet sets out on his quest for the magical caged dove that will cure his father’s blindness. In a strangely deserted city, the prince and his wicked little brother will encounter the lustful, ravenous giant who ate the city’s entire population…after fucking all the men and boys. Izzet will discover the depths of his brother’s and the giant’s perversity, and encounter a talking fox and (in his dreams) the handsome lover he never suspected he yearned for. He will embark on further quests—to the land of the giants, the mountain of lions, and the palace of the tricksy peris. Following the fox’s sage advice, he will triumph in all his endeavors, until his vulpine friend sets him the hardest task of all.

Meanwhile in the prison baths, the yard, his cell, Yamyam’s tale goes on as he and Izzet negotiate the terms of their relationship. Can a murderer who’s never heard the word gay be any man’s lover? Can a youth raped on his first night in jail learn to trust the man who desires him?

Rookies: Gay Erotic Cop Stories by Shane Allison (Ed)Rookies: Gay Erotic Cop Stories by Shane Allison (Ed)
Cleis Press, June 2014; ISBN-10: 1627780297

Rookie cops are irresistible — wet behind the ears, still a little innocent, and oh-so eager! These hot young cops are fresh out of the police academy and ready to learn the ropes. Between the buzz cut and chiseled jaw, those bulging thighs under tight blue serge, and the cool mirrored glasses that reflect unbridled lust in the eyes (and other body parts), they are the sexiest thing on wheels. Maybe it’s the promise of punishment at the end of a nightstick or perhaps it’s the sheer pleasure of transgression, of getting down and dirty with a man who’s supposed to enforce the law but seems more interested in the perp than in his crime.

Rookies explores the sexier, sleazier side of these masculine icons and working-class heroes from park rangers and policemen to MPs, security guards, and private dicks.

Cleis Press, January 2014; ISBN: 978-1-57344-957-1

From the introduction by Felice Newman:

Outside of actual fucking, my favorite kinky activity is reading erotic stories. I love crawling inside another person’s imagination. What hot situation will she dream up? Who are the characters, where in the story will they come together, and what will they do once they get there?

I’m a voyeur. By reading erotica I get to “watch” hot women having sex. Sometimes an erotic story presents me with new ideas, and sometimes an erotic stories causes me to revisit an erotic scenario or activity I hadn’t entertained recently. You might say that reading erotica keeps me fresh. No surprise, since I am a founding publisher of Cleis Press, which has published thousands of them. As a sex educator and sex coach, I deploy erotica as the secret tool for women who feel stuck or emptied of desire. Read sex stories, indulge your fetish, get your kink on, discover your heat, I say.

Here are my favorite graphic depictions of lesbian sex—stories of urgent sex, kinky sex, vanilla sex, self-pleasuring sex, cross-dressing sex, public sex, butch/femme sex, voyeuristic sex, BDSM, edgy sex, passionate, dirty sex. It’s all here.
