The darker sexual themes run the gamete of coercion, reluctance, lost loves, voyeurism, mind-control, domination/submission, and BDSM--a taste for every palette and kink, while the lighter side touches on first romances, first loves, intimate relationships, and the sweetness of committed couples.

Cassandra Duffy/Lizzy Dark encompasses the full experience of living and loving as a lesbian while adding playful humor, some scares, and possibly even tears on the backdrop of a sexually rich paranormal setting.

Editorial Reviews

Laura Wallace
Ms. Duffy gives the reader several stories of finding love in alternative worlds. Each story is full of ‘what if?’ in novelette forms. Each story is gritty and some leave you wondering. Ms. Duffy/Dark weaves love, passion and very dark desires into novelettes of relationships between the human realm and those of demons, angels, witchcraft and fae with a bite of Vampire. Some are just plain magic, stories of love crossing impossible barriers.
Kelly Wood
This collection is BY FAR the best of any I've ever purchased. Quality lesbian erotica is incredibly difficult to find, and I'm very picky about the writing quality and authenticity of the work, but this author is remarkably talented in constructing amazingly sexy scenes. She's also managed to capture a lot of beauty and romance, and the plotlines are truly thrilling. the sex scenes themselves are widely varied, creative, and most importantly, AMAZINGLY HOT.

Meet the Author

Cassandra Duffy spent most of her childhood being precocious, which stopped being entertaining or impressive when she grew into an adult, at which point she had to start being precious. After being an outcast child prodigy it was no surprise when she graduated from one of the many fine University of California schools a year early to follow her girlfriend in a cross country move.

She writes a free-lance sex advice column found in various lesbian magazines and dating websites. Her short story collections and novels can be found on her website at

Two of her greatest prides are being a true California girl and author of some truly naughty things. She is a dutiful partially-Asian daughter who is beloved by her fairly traditional Korean father who thinks having a gay daughter is just fine as long as she keeps playing coed flag football. She is a stereotypical younger sister, and an adoring aunt of a hilarious little boy. Being a modern techno-freak, gamer-girl, she spent most of her childhood dreaming of being a video game designer, but changed her mind and brought her dreams of world building and story-weaving to writing unique romance novels.

Cassandra is a gleefully monogamous girlfriend to an earthbound goddess who was once her high school bully, but has done a magnificent job of making up for all the school girl nastiness ever since. When she isn’t being an avid fang girl (vampire fan girl) or tormenting people in online gaming, she lives and writes in Winter Park, Florida with her partner and soul mate Nichole and their two cats: Dragon and Josephine.

    Great Companion Collection Part 1

    This is a fantastic companion collection to Fable Fang Girls, it looks like the same model was even used for the cover of both. I finished both over the weekend and loved both immensely.

    Cassandra Duffy is an exciting new voice in paranormal romance and erotica with an amazing range of writing skills for someone so young!

    Worthy First Collection!

    I'm working my way through Cassandra Duffy's library after getting hooked by her steampunk novel, and this is another gem. Judging from the publishing dates, this looks to be her first collection and it has a bit of the rough edges you might expect from someone who is finding their voice, but all in all it was a satisfying, fun read. I found the source for one of the stories in her second paranormal romance collection in this one and thought that was a fun little continuation. She covers more than just vampires in this collection, which is far more erotica than romance, but even at that has a lot more to offer than just sex scenes.

    Spicy Paranormal Variety!

    I went into this book hoping for vampires, but wasn't at all disappointed when I found a plethora of paranormal beasties inside. Aside from the love scenes, which were sexy as hell, I found myself really enjoying the stories themselves. I found the book through a few lists that had it linked together with other comedic books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and I think that's an appropriate grouping. The author(s) write in a witty, literary style that most erotica/romance authors just can't reach or sustain. As a first offering from what is apparently a very young writer, this has the mark of polish and talent most veteran authors would aspire to. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing how Ms. Duffy/Dark grows and develops as a writer; if this is her starting point, she is shaping up to be an exciting emerging voice for the lesbian community!

    Mummies are hot?

    I want a demon girlfriend or a vampire boss after reading this book. Lesbian fiction has never been this fun and straight fiction has never been this hot. All I want is more!

    A little of everything done well!

    Okay, so I read the books by Ms. Duffy and Ms. Dark in the wrong order. Apparently this is her first. It feels more like a first effort than the science fiction one (Astral Liaisons), but it's more in the absence of the illustrator. Cookie-cutter clip art just doesn't hold up to the original work of the graphic designer used for the second book. But, since it's not a picture book, I can't really hold that against it. Focusing only on the fiction, this is a fantastic collection!

    The author(s), I wasn't really clear if it was meant to be two people or two pen names or what, have a very distinct voice that is modern, hip, funny, and astoundingly witty in places. The sex scenes are hot and feel like they're helping the stories move forward rather than just being plunked in at random intervals, which is something that has really bugged me about other erotica/romance collections. The sex scenes and story are woven together in Demons of Paradise in an artful way.

    The sheer number of paranormal things covered is astounding: changelings, ghosts, demons, vampires, werewolves, and angels even make an appearance. As much as I liked this variety (the mummy story was my favorite!) I really would like to see what the author might do with all vampires, which is what I'm into really into right now. As long as I'm making a wish list, I'd like to see her take a crack at a novel at some point. The stories start to feel like teasers after awhile, and I want to know what happens to some of the characters next.
