"Sexy, smart and literate: Best Women's Erotica 2012 presents the year's hottest bedside reading.There's a hungry audience of readers who demand smart, literate, emotionally charged women's erotica—stories that tell the truth about women's sexuality in all its variety and emotional depth, with all its surprises and twists and turns....Best Women's Erotica 2012 is just for these readers. 5-star editor Violet Blue delivers exactly what readers want- fantasy-fueled, pulse-racing reads that push boundaries and are "let's try this as home" aspirational."
—Fresh Fiction

"I always think these types of books are wonderful as they give readers an introduction to several authors at once. While you may not love every story there should be a few you do. Don’t expect bland sexual experiences because there aren’t any in this book. Instead, think outside the box."
—Night Owl Reviews

"Every story has one thing in common—as Violet Blue herself says, 'a woman is at the center of every pleasure.'...When erotica is made for women, there is a nervousness that it will be very gentle. Not so with this collection—the desires range from deliciously vanilla to spiced with kink....It's an anthology that will expand your palette... and your mind."
—Romantic Readers and Writers Association
