Overview

Eight darkly erotic and horrifically delicious stories guaranteed to give you shivers, in more ways than one!

In 'The Ride,' Annabelle hitches a ride from a stranger in a small town, where every day is the same. She longs for adventure and is looking to get out to find it...but it turns out that, even in the backwoods, nothing is as it seems after all...

In 'The Gingerbread Man,' Lindy runs into an unexpected snow storm on the way to her fiance's on Christmas Eve, but will the charming, kindly gentleman who comes to her rescue turn out to be more saccharine than sweet?

In 'The Laundry Chute,' an old-fashioned laundry chute in a big, rambling farm house proves deadly for a group of young, adventurous boys...

In 'Advent Calendar,' Jay is a player-a typical college student with one thing on his mind-and that doesn't change when he meets Betsy. He wants nothing more than to take her five ways from Sunday, and Betsy doesn't seem to object. Still, the more time he spends with her, the more she seems to affect him... When she gives him a homemade advent calendar for Christmas, Jay discovers the real meaning of the phrase, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."

In 'The Velvet Choker,' Lydia has heard the stories from her co-workers about the house at the apex of two dead end roads, but the young immigrant housekeeper isn't scared easily. Working for the strange and reserved jewelry maker Hugo Kauffman pays well, and for that, she's willing to overlook his eccentricities. But when Lydia finds a black, velvet choker in a box she's been forbidden from opening, her life is changed forever, and she finds herself suddenly bound to the strange and eccentric old man who runs the household. Will the introduction and interest of the new, young portrait painter save her from her plight?

In 'Pumpkin Eater,' she doesn't know how long she's been with Belch, the strange man who grows giant pumpkins...she doesn't even remember her own name... But when a kind police officer comes to buy a pumpkin from their patch, Beth begins to remember. Sheriff Will Walker's instincts tell him that something is wrong, but he can't quite put his finger on what. Will he be able to figure out the mystery in time?

All of the stories included: Silent Night, Mercy, The Velvet Choker, Pumpkin Eater, The Ride, Advent Calender, The Laundry Chute, The Gingerbread Man and a BONUS STORY: Hunting Season co-authored with horror/thriller author Blake Crouch!

(Warnings: This title contains graphic language, sex and elements of horror.)

EXCERPT:

God, she smells incredible! Whatever the hell perfume she was wearing was intoxicating, and I dipped my nose into the swell of her cleavage where it was stronger. "You smell great," I murmured against her neck.

She giggled, and I winced. Note to self-don't make her giggle!

"Pheromones..." The feel of her breath in my ear made my cock jump.

"What?" I tilted my head to look at her.

"Never heard of pheromones? Just chemicals we give off...love scents. It's like an aphrodisiac. Careful, you could fall in love with me," she teased.

"You've got a love scent, all right," I agreed, kissing her, harder, digging for that tiny tongue again and finding it.

She moaned against my mouth, responding to my thumbs rubbing over her hard nipples. They were pale pink and puffy. She had a true blonde's coloring, and I judged that Miss Clairol only gave her natural hues a shine, although I wouldn't know that for sure until I had her panties down. Her hand went for my crotch, but I grabbed her wrist, twisting her arm behind her and kissing her toward my room. Whether it was the beer or the cold, my dick wasn't responding quite fully yet, and nothing killed things quicker than a girl who thought you couldn't get it up for her. No matter what you said, they made it all about them.

Read an Excerpt

"So, seriously, what's the joke?" I asked.

She was hanging her head off the end of my bed, watching the tail end of A Charlie Brown Christmas Special upside down.

"Don't you love the way they talk? Wah, wahhh wahhhhh. Isn't that totally how you used to hear grown-ups?" She lolled her head off the corner and put her bare feet up on the wall, crossing them at the ankles.

"I still hear grown-ups that way," I snorted, pulling my t-shirt on. "Come on, Betz, give."

"Oh, this wasn't enough for you?" She teased me, opening her thighs and pointing between them. Her pussy lips were still a little swollen and they glistened. I sat next to her, my hand inevitably drawn to the wetness, rubbing the moist and slightly sticky skin with my thumb. God, she's intoxicating.

"Everything isn't about sex, you know?" I tried to sound serious, although my fingers betrayed me and slid through her slit as my cock began to throb against my thigh.

She laughed--god, I loved her laugh--it tinkled, like ice crystals forming in midair. Rolling off the bed, she grabbed for the remote and started to flip channels. "Do you have CNN? I have to see if they're broadcasting any other signs of the apocalypse."

"Ha." I said. "Ha." She grinned up at me, sprawled naked on my floor, her hair like dark chocolate streams covering the generous swell of her breasts. "Well, if you're not gonna tell me what it's all about, I'm not opening any more of those stupid doors." I grabbed a new pair of briefs out of my top drawer, shoving the advent calendar aside to do it. It toppled toward the wall and balanced there, its first five black doors hanging askew showing five decidedlyblank white spaces.

Every morning I felt like a fool, opening a new door in the hopes that this time, something would appear. I had noticed a different odor each day--first the oranges and cloves, then cinnamon, then something I couldn't identify at all, then something that smelled faintly like pumpkin pie. I joked with her on the phone that she had invented the world's first "Scratch 'N Sniff" advent calendar. She just laughed. There was a different smell today, like those red and white pinwheel peppermint candies my grandmother used to keep in her pocket to keep us quiet in church, but it didn't linger long. I was getting really tired of whatever game Betsy was playing.

"Nice ass," she commented softly. I didn't reply, tugging my jeans on. God, she pissed me off sometimes.

"Is that all I am to you?" I tossed her jeans off my bed and into her lap. Her eyes were bright, dancing, as she looked up at me, incredulous. I stopped, my jaw as slack as hers. "What the fuck?" I said softly, out loud, rubbing my chin thoughtfully. What the hell am I saying? What the hell do I care?

"I'm gonna go home." She started to get dressed. I couldn't see her face as she bent to slide her panties on. I felt bad all of a sudden and then I was pissed that I felt bad. This wasn't good at all. I watched her slide her jeans on, her back to me, her panties caught slightly in the crack of her ass. My cock jerked reactively, just seeing her bent over and sliding denim up her shapely thighs. I sat on my bed, uncertain.

"You don't have to keep opening them if you don't want to." She kissed my cheek and smiled softly before opening my bedroom door. She must have been chewing gum because she smelled like peppermint.

"There's no point!" I called after her. "It's not funny!" I heard her laugh and gritted my teeth. This wasn't gonna fly. I was done. I don't care how much she gets my dick hard, no girl is worth this kind of hassle and game-playing.

    Interesting Erotic Horror

    This was an interesting mix of stories in the anthology. The writing was better than most erotica but did lack some substance in parts of the book. (I would rate this as above average)
