Cruel Enchantment is collection of eleven fantastical erotica stories, each carrying its own no-holds barred, supernatural fairytale theme. You'll find dragons who seduce human princesses, an "evil" stepmother bent on educating her wayward stepdaughter, a community of werewolves, a lusty English Lord returned from the grave for one last "ride", and much more in this delightfully wicked collection. The stories included: * Loud Sing Cuckoo * The Dragon's Bride * Renaissance * The Temptation of St Gregory * The Fairest of Them All * Montague's Last Ride * Bodyguard * Sacrifices * Toil and Trouble * Captive Audience * White As Any Milk; Black As Any Silk Janine Ashbless has an amazing writer's voice, and her gift of world building is second to none. I like Cruel Enchantment because each story reads like you are right there, no matter what the setting or time period. My favorite story in this particular book is Renaissance, a tale of a young merchant's wife afflicted with an unusual malady. She's sent to pray at a remote shrine to be cured of her illness, and discovers she's not alone - and that her illness isn't quite what she thought it to be. I also liked The Dragon's Bride, a controversial story about a dragon who takes a human woman for a temporary mate - I found it to be clever and fresh. Sensitive readers might object to the darker theme presented in Montague's Last Ride, so I recommend reading it last. Overall, Cruel Enchantment is a solid, well-written erotica collection filled with the beautiful and the bizarre. I can't think of a similar book that compares. For those who love fantasy erotica, this is a collection too hot to be missed.
