Overview

Dangerous women aren’t always the ones who carry guns and take down the bad guys. Sometimes, the most dangerous women are the ones we don’t even notice -- the sultry siren crooning in a smoky bar, the innocent young girl twirling in her summer dress, the soft-shoed nurse who helps the comatose.

In this collection, award-winning author Shanna Germain gathers seven of her darkest, lushest fantasy and horror stories about strong, smart women who know that danger is a matter of scale -- and of which side you happen to be standing on.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Ernesto Ramirez
This is a collection of seven short dark fantasy and science fiction stories, each one absolutely different from the others except in a couple things: they are written exquisitely and everyone is enticing and addicting, drawing you forward into a powerful and dark embrace.
Amazon.com - Noah McLaughlin
these are imaginative stories of terror that are equally very sexy; but they are also stylish bits of prose, a style that engages and engrosses, that pulls you in with a siren's song that can drown you.

Shanna Germain's latest collection is heartily recommended reading for those seeking something extraordinary. Bring your red wine for the libido, your teddy bear for your fear and your shotgun for protection. And even still, you will succumb to the Lure of Dangerous Women.
