Publishers WeeklyMadore's latest erotic anthology is composed of seven stories, each struggling to combine elements of sexual fantasy with fantastic storytelling. In "The Enchanted Forest", Catherine becomes the sexual plaything of an animate garden, whereas Maryanne in the story "Disenchantment" fights off love to avoid its horrific-quite literally-scenario. "Flowers for Angela" told through the journal entries of a psychoanalyst, describes a patient's infatuation with role-play. The other stories involve intimate encounters with a mix of characters ranging from ghosts ("Jimmy"), vampires ("Dying for It"), and aliens ("Expecting"). The high point of the collection comes at the finale with "The Incentive Program"-a delightfully complex tale that centers on a futurist look at polyagamory. This is easily the most romantic story, contrary to the rest which all feature negative outcomes for the female protagonist just as much as physical gratification.
