Paranormal Erotic Romance
Edited by Mitzi Szereto

Explore Your Dark Desires

The supernatural: Think vampires, werewolves, ghosts…eerie sounds in the night, impassioned whispers teasing at the depths of sleep…Think red velvet, flickering candles, love and lust with otherworldly partners who unleash passion and desire far beyond that inspired by simple mortals. Editor Mitzi Szereto’s sensual stories provide thrills and chills of telltale hearts, redolent with romance and danger. Red Velvet and Absinthe will carry you away, conjuring up the romantic spirit of classic Gothic fiction with a generous dose of eroticism.

A lusty lady, ravaged, seeks comfort in the arms of her maidservent in Giselle Renarde’s rapacious “Milady’s Bath,” while bondage and desire enslave a wolf girl to her master in “Snowlight, Moonlight” by Rose de Fer. Janine Ashbless’s “Cover Him with Darkness” is an exquisite tale of secret love between an imprisoned fallen angel and the girl he seduces. Editor Mitzi Szereto’s vampire romance “The Blood Moon Kiss” is sexy Southern Gothic at its finest.



Why Love and Sex Drive Us Mad
by Liz Langley

Crazy Little Thing is a look at why we want to be in love and the burbling, boiling soup of endorphins, hormones, and neurotransmitters that spill from our brain to make us do things that would otherwise be viewed as insane. Investigative journalist Liz Langley traveled the country to research and interview singularly love-mad folks who maimed, murdered, and married. Langley reveals the science of love and lust, as well as very human stories: a spouse who can’t stop loving her criminally psychotic husband, even after he threw acid in her face; the sweet romance between alligator-skinned sideshow performers; and a man whose neurons drive his necrophilia. Langley reveals the control our chemicals have over us in a hilarious, confounding—and too strange to be anything but true—look at love.
