Best Erotic Romance 2013

( 1 )

Overview

So what happens with love meets sex? Erotic love is that delicious blend of hearts and minds and bodies, a combination of sweet and dirty, romantic and sexy. Sex by itself—hot, steamy, sensual sex—is one of the best things this life has to offer. But then, so is love. First love, new love, renewed love; love that has stood the test of time, love that has conquered every obstacles. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new relationship, such as Jeanette Grey’s yogo-bound characters in “Teach Me,” or a long-term relationship...

Overview

So what happens with love meets sex? Erotic love is that delicious blend of hearts and minds and bodies, a combination of sweet and dirty, romantic and sexy. Sex by itself—hot, steamy, sensual sex—is one of the best things this life has to offer. But then, so is love. First love, new love, renewed love; love that has stood the test of time, love that has conquered every obstacles. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new relationship, such as Jeanette Grey’s yogo-bound characters in “Teach Me,” or a long-term relationship like Dominic Santi’s happily (and lusty) married couple in “Kiss of Peace”— the combination of sex and love is incendiary. The collection is split between familiar authors and authors new to the genre. Best-selling author Kate Pearce delivers a scorching hot fantasy that takes place in a department store dressing room in "The Price of Love." Teresa Noelle Roberts has a sweetly erotic story about parents waiting for their adopted son in "Waiting for Ilya" and Geneva King's "Last Hundred Days" recounts the last hundred days between a divorcing couple.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers of romance won’t find their familiar genre conventions in these 17 stories, which fall much more on the romantic erotica end of the spectrum. A violinist plays his lover like an instrument in Torrance Sené’s “Adagio.” A woman wants to “be the meat” for her butcher in Kristina Lloyd’s “Cutting Out Hearts,” not a “little cake” as she is for her husband. In Victoria Blisse’s “Chocolate Cake and You,” a woman on a diet is tempted by a tasty dessert and an ex-lover. Catherine Paulssen writes tenderly of a handcuffed bride’s encounter “Three Nights Before the Wedding.” Donna George Storey’s sweet “Flowering” begins as a woman watches her neighbor, recalling their one-night stand. Old friends without benefits reunite and change that equation in the surprisingly wistful “Another Chance” by Erobintica. There’s little emotional development or depth, but plenty of sexy fun. (Feb.)

From the introduction: Can't Get Enough

Best Erotic Romance 2013 is not about fantasy love affairs. It’s not about perfect bodies having perfect sex and being perfectly in love. These stories are about the messiness, the screwedupedness, of love and lust. Real people, whose words are not always right or kind, who fall in love and have sex when and where they can even when it’s not always easy or convenient or even wise. These are the stories about people you might know, people who might even be you. Love is messy and complicated—except when it’s not. But even when it’s right, even when the stars have aligned to bring two people together who are perfect for each other, there are obstacles. There are children and careers and birth control issues and homes to renovate and scheduling problems and forgotten anniversaries and, and, and… there’s always something to throw a wrench in the works and drag two people apart instead of pulling them into bed. But they make it work and, eventually, they find their way to that bed. Or that couch. Or the wall. Or the yard. Or the car. They take each other’s hand and they find a way to be together. For today, for now, forever. That’s what happens when romance and sex come together. Hopeless, maddening, passionate, sexy love.

    This book is as steamy and emotionally fulfilling as the cover promises. Old love with its experience and scars and new love with its blank pages of possibility. Sweet enough to make you crave a cuddle and hot enough to make you blush. A better choice I couldn't have made to get me in the mood for Valentine's Day! And now I'm off to order more from this editor...
