Swordplay *wink* *wink* for all!
Brought to you by OBS reviewer Vicki
The initial questions I need to ask myself after reading sexy books are: A) Do I need a cold shower? And B) Will this fire-engine red blush ever go away? In the case of Thrones of Desire; I believe I shall be spending the next week in my freezer and buying a thick pale ivory foundation from this day forth.
The title of this book, and perhaps even the conception itself, is something that has most likely been born from the kinky corners of the Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire bandwagon. That is not to say that George R. R. Martin doesn’t dish out his fair share of kink – but even his Santa Clause beard wouldn’t hide the inevitable mischievous flush. Thrones of Desire is a collection of short stories from various established authors, all of whom are well respected wordkinksmiths in the fantasy/high fantasy/erotic genres. The caliber of writing is nothing short of superb and although the collection is quite literally story after story of sexy olde worldy frolics; there is no repetition or mediocrity.
Mitzi Szereto has done a top-notch editing job as each story seamlessly flows into the other. The stories range from lonely women tending to wounded soldiers to fierce female Dragonmeisters strutting around half-naked and generally being awesome. There are elements of magic, forbidden love, bitter sexual tension, violence, death, good versus evil, myth and folklore. Something for everyone, unless you are in anyway prudish…
My favorite stories in the collection were At the Sorcerer’s Command by Kim Knox, In the Kingdom of Roz by Madeline Moore and Eyekeeper by Aurelia T. Evans. These three were very different stories but seemed to involve the broadest range of fantasy elements. They all flawlessly determined recognizable genre, believable characters and rich plot, which is something I always find extremely admirable about short story writers.
Thrones of Desire is a fantastic collection of erotic stories that carry a severe hotness warning and definitely require recuperation intervals. Digest this collection at a slow pace or you are sure to suffer a swordplay (*wink*wink*) overload!

Review originally posted at Romance After Dark, a Romancing the Book site
When I first saw the cover of the book I knew that I was in for a real treat.
If you love short erotic tales then this is the book for you. In a way all the stories go together and in a way they don’t. You will have to read the book to completely understand where I am coming from.
I enjoyed reading each and every story. Some I understood and some I didn’t. Almost every one got my blood pumping and in a good way. I just got so into every story and hated it when I came to the end. There are some that will always be my favorite.
The way that the book was written and how every story was put in a certain order brought out the best in each one. I could never have such an imagination. I could just imagine myself with a sword and fighting along. I could really imagine myself with the men. Some of the way that the authors described them just made me want them to be real. I loved that I could really imagine them in my head.
The sex was just so wild in some of them and some was a little tame. So there is really a story in here for anyone’s enjoyment. Me personally, I love the really hot sizzling one’s. I will be the first to say that I will be reading this book again.
So if you love dragons, wizards, warlocks, or just anything to do with magic. With some hot erotic stories around them then this is the book for you.
I was really hoping that this book would never end, but they don’t work like that. I will be waiting for the next erotic read that will just make me break out in a sweat. So just bring all the sex that you can.

Maybe not the most erotic book of erotic short stories I've ever
Maybe not the most erotic book of erotic short stories I've ever read but still gets a big WOW! from me. It's a book filled with magic, a trade paperback loaded with adult-sized Grimm fairy tales.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
