Mythologically Torqued Anthology Volume 1Mythologically Torqued Anthology Volume 1
Torquere Press, May 2015

Torquere's largest anthology to date features a total of 15 authors pleased to bring you 15 unique tales from when gods and goddesses ruled the world. This collection features both m/m and f/f content for your reading pleasure. Dare you enter this realm of Mythologically Torqued fantasy? Be on the lookout for Volume 2 summer 2015.

Mythology, whether classic or modern, has always taken readers on a magical ride. Mythologically Torqued, volume I, takes those tales from days of old, or more recent history, and places a unique spin on the beloved lore. 

The gods of Olympus make appearances, as do deities from Japanese, Norse, and other belief systems. With rampant sexual desires, these gods manage to slake their thirst for passions of the flesh in a rather untraditional manner…if the oral traditions passed down from generation-to-generation were at all accurate. 

These fifteen short stories are penned by both seasoned scribes and new authors; the anthology provides readers with the perfect opportunity to explore offerings from their favorite storytellers as well as find a new favorite or two. And, a unique perspective on the stories we enjoyed—or were forced down our throats at the hands of a sadistic English teacher or two—in our youth. 

Containing both M/M and F/F stories from authors Alisha Monroe, Alyx Shaw, Angelique Voisen, Carol Tierney, Delilah Storm, Eva Lefoy, Jacey Mills, L.J. Hamlin, Leah Ellwood, Logan Zachary, Max Wilde, Salome Wilde, Shiloh Saddler, T. Strange, and V.L. Locey, Mythologically Torqued volume I is sure to have something for every penchant.

Just for Her: Sexy Stories by Alison Tyler

Just for Her: Sexy Stories by Alison Tyler
Cleis Press, February 2015; ISBN-10: 162778098X

Only Alison Tyler could make erotica fun again and she has done just that with this delightfully delectable set of sweets with something for every taste, whether naughty, nice, or even nasty. Above all, however, these racy and romantic stories are all highly, addictively readable! Just for Her stands tall beside Violet Blue's juggernaut Best Women's Erotica series with tales hand-selected by one of the top eroticists in the business, Alison Tyler. Tyler knows exactly what women want and she gives it to them in spades in her carefully, lovingly curated Just for Her.

This collection of saucy short stories is directed at the reader — however, in this case, the “you” is the female protagonist in each story. Most stories feature male-female pairings, although there are a couple of female-female stories as well as a FMF threesome for added spice. An easy anthology to read from cover to cover, this collection lets women cast their partners (or whoever they want) in the role of narrator to give the stories an even more personal flavor.

Just for Him is a rarity on the erotica and romance landscape — stories men will lay back and enjoy in every possible way.

The Inheritor: Book Six of The Marketplace Series by Laura AntoniouThe Inheritor: Book Six of The Marketplace Series by Laura Antoniou
Circlet Press, August 1, 2015; ISBN-10: 1613901275

A surprise hit when first published in the 1990s by Masquerade Books, THE MARKETPLACE launched a series that eventually grew to five books. The author, Laura Antoniou, wrote them slowly, while working a day job, and after Masquerade went under, moved to a small press. After that press's demise, the series faltered, but in 2010 Circlet Press began to re-issue the series in new ebook editions. The revitalization of the entire franchise in the face of "50 Shades" mania has been nothing short of incredible. Antoniou's work has been featured in Cosmopolitan, Life Story, and elsewhere as a safe, sane, and consensual alternative to "50" and now, at last, after a massively successful Kickstarter campaign, a brand new, never before published sixth installment is ready to foray into bookstores!

When last we saw Chris Parker, he had been bought by master trainer Tetsuo Sakai and was blissfully ensconced in Japan under Tetsuo's wonderfully sadistic boot. And here we join Robin Cassidy, now contentedly serving a slave contract for a rich Chicago businessman. But the Marketplace is shaken when a new Trainer of Trainers must be anointed and the resulting machinations and clashing loyalties threaten to tear their world apart. Everyone has a stake in the outcome and Chris Parker is about to find out who is with him and who is against him.

Richly told, interconnecting threads of Parker's previously unseen past with his complicated present, The Inheritor also weaves in the narratives of many favorite Marketplace characters, including Robin, Ken Mandarin, Ron Avidon, and features appearances by many more, including Jiro, Rachel, Michael, and Grendel.

Laura Antoniou is the award-winning author of The Killer Wore Leather and the long-running series that began in 1993 with The Marketplace.

The Other Side of the Pillow by ZaneThe Other Side of the Pillow by Zane
Atria Books, July 2015, ISBN: 0743499328

The latest novel from the New York Times bestselling Queen of Erotica about a testy love affair between a woman who’s had enough and a man who’s had it all.

Jemistry Daniels, the beautiful, intelligent, six-figures-a-year high school principal, suffered through one bad relationship after another. No wonder she adopted the “friends with benefits” mentality when it came to men. For Jemistry, there was to be no “catching feelings.” Her biggest mistake would be to open her heart again.

When Dr. Tevin Harris meets Jemistry at a poetry reading in a café, he knows from her confessional writing that her past with men has been difficult. The prominent vascular surgeon, who has been only casually dating for years, is attracted to the embittered Jemistry nonetheless. With a little persistence, Tevin convinces Jemistry to go out with him. She has baggage, but so does he. What about his divorce?

Despite their respective pasts, Jemistry and Tevin’s chemistry is right and the relationship takes off, but not without bumps in the road. When Jemistry encounters her new beau in a compromising position with her bisexual best friend, what follows is an intense, sensuous, and unforgettable drama with surprises around every turn.

If I Were You (The Inside Out Series) by Lisa Renee JonesIf I Were You (The Inside Out Series) by Lisa Renee Jones
Pocket Books; Reprint edition, July 2015; ISBN-10: 1501124986

In the bestselling style of Fifty Shades of Grey, Lisa Renee Jones delivers sexy thrills and heart-pounding sensuality with a tantalizing page-turner in which the eyes of a high school English teacher are opened to a world she never knew existed, and she finds a passionate craving within that she never knew she possessed.

The journal comes to Sara McMillan by chance, when she inherits the key to an abandoned storage locker belonging to a woman named Rebecca. Sara can’t resist peeking at the entries inside . . . and finds a scintillating account of Rebecca’s affair with an unnamed lover, a relationship drenched in ecstasy and wrapped in dark secrets.

Obsessed with discovering Rebecca’s destiny after the entries come to an abrupt end, Sara does more than observe the players in the woman’s life; she immerses herself in the high-stakes art gallery world Rebecca inhabited—and is magnetically drawn to two men. Which one seduced Rebecca with his masterful and commanding touch and brought her fantasies to exquisite life? On a daringly erotic escapade, Sara follows Rebecca’s path to fulfill her own hidden longings. But after she tastes the forbidden pleasures Rebecca savored, will Sara be helpless to escape the same submissive fate?

Determined to help the war effort, Frankie Norris joins the US Air Force in 1943. Braving intimidating drill sergeants and unending marches, Frankie struggles to hide his secret—he’s queer. But having passed basic training, he’s not going to risk an undesirable discharge or any of his fellow recruits finding out. Then he receives word that he’s been granted a position flying the plane he loves, the P-51 Mustang.

But as Frankie finds his wings in the sky, feelings of isolation may keep him grounded. Slowly making friends among his squadron, Frankie realizes he may not be as alone or as abnormal as he thinks. Other queer men have formed a community in the Armed Forces to offer support. Then Frankie meets his crew chief, Jim Morrow. Initially antagonistic, they slowly become friends and a mutual attraction develops as they join the Eighth Air Force in Britain. Confessing their feelings, snatching what time they can together, and wary of discovery, Frankie and Jim are there for each other through dangerous missions and the loss of friends. It’s a long war with enemies on both sides. All they can hope for is to survive long enough for a chance at something more.

Me and My Boi: Queer Erotic Stories by Sacchi Green (Ed)Me and My Boi: Queer Erotic Stories by Sacchi Green (Ed)
Cleis Press, September 2015; ISBN-10:

Sacchi Green is one of the most lauded and respected queer writers of today. And why? Because she breaks new ground with each and every book. Me and My Boi throbs with the currency of lesbian love and lust today, when the love dares speak it's name using new words, terms and letters.

Me and My Boi celebrates lesbian bois, butches, and screw-the-binary free spirits; cool bois, hot bois, swaggering bois, shy bois, leather bois, flannel bois, butch daddies, and the girls (and other bois) who wouldn’t have them any other way. The stories range from Sinclair Sexsmith’s raw “Five Blow Jobs” through Victoria Oldham’s searing “Resurrection” and old-school lesbian bar tale “Hot Pants” by Jen Cross to the aching tenderness of “Her Gardener’s Boy” by D. Orchid. Twenty authors, among them Sommer Marsden, Annabeth Leong, Tamsin Flowers and Kathleen Tudor, heat up settings all the way from a Regency drawing room to modern Paris to a Brooklyn bike shop. Whatever turns you on, or cuts deep, or sparks your wildest fantasies, if these writers don’t push the buttons you already have, they’ll hook you up with some new ones. Gender has no boundaries, and neither does lust.

When It Comes To YouWhen It Comes To You
Cast: Karlie Montana, Steven St. Croix, Ryan Driller, Zoey Monroe,
Director: Stormy Daniels
Studio: Wicked Passions

This Stormy Daniels couples film for Wicked Passions hits all the right romantic stops. Karlie Montana is excellent as a young woman who can’t make up her mind between an old flame and a new fiancé. It starts off with a very sensual scene where Karlie literally melts for her older, divorced lover James (Steven St. Croix).

Her sister (director Daniels in a non-sex cameo) warns her about rushing into marriage with new flame Thomas (Ryan Driller). Zoey Monroe, as Karlie’s BFF, is also skeptical, knowing how much she’s still hung up on James. In the end, on her wedding day, Karlie decides to “follow her heart” — even if it doesn’t lead where she thinks it will.

Good acting, passionate sex and great erotic chemistry enhance the fairly simple story. Karlie is very believable as the conflicted heroine and gives her all in scenes with St. Croix and Driller. There’s a heavy emphasis on cunnilingus, not surprising from a woman director; Stormy makes sure that all the girls get off. — Jared Rutter, XBIZ Editors Choice
