About the Author

Mitzi Szereto is an author and anthology editor of erotic and multi-genre fiction and nonfiction. She has her own blog Errant Ramblings: Mitzi Szereto’s Weblog (mitziszereto.com/blog), and a web TV channel Mitzi TV (mitziszereto.com/tv), which covers the quirky side of London. Her books include The Wilde Passions of Dorian Grey, Red Velvet and Absinthe, Thrones of Desire, Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts, and Normal for Norfolk: The Thelonious T. Bear Chronicles. She divides her time between Atlanta and London. Darker Edge of Desire "Diverse, edgy, and infused with fantasy and horror, this chilling anthology of incendiary short stories is certainly not your typical Halloween romance anthology, but it will appeal to fans of the dark, erotic, and forbidden who don’t expect traditional love stories or “happily ever afters.”" —Library Journal “Worthy of note is Gary Earl Ross’s ‘Sister Bessie’s Boys,’ a delicate story about growing up, overcoming loss, and truly attempting to know other people. Another strong story is Szereto’s own ‘The Dracula Club,’ about a Dracula-obsessed American who follows her dreams to Transylvania and finds more than she expected. The most Gothic of the successful stories, Jo Wu’s ‘Devoured by Envy,’ charts ballerina Giselle’s self-destructive obsession with a man who refused her sexual overtures and married another woman." —Publishers Weekly "Darker Edge of Desire does not provide us with experimental horror nor does it give us neatly wrapped stories. What it does provide is excitement, scads of it. This book is really excellent, each story as delightful as the last." —Fresh Fiction

This book is filled with stories of mystery, romance, erotica, and the paranormal which makes it like nothing I’ve ever read before. It is an eclectic mix all in one that never leaves you hanging. It is perfect for an exciting late night read.

Darker Edge of Desire is a beautifully written romantic sojourn into the world of vampires, goths, and other creatures of the night. Though the tales may be compared to Twilight and the multitude of other teen romance fiction, I felt the stories were more mature and presented the characters in more adult situations. My only complaint is that some of the tales aren't as creepy as I wanted them to be. But one thing the stories never lack is suspense, romance, and sex, and lots of it. And who, my friends is going to complain about that?

Sexy and Dark, this book has it all. Darker Edge of Desire is an enticing collection of 14 tales sure to tantalize even the most unshakable stiff. These Gothic Tales of Romance caress the shadowy limits of the intimate innermost psyche. Passions ignite throughout these stories of lust, suspense, desire, and intrigue. Creatures and characters both strange and familiar escape the imagination, kindle the affections, and burn with a fervor only quenched by the intoxication of pure carnal euphoria. Mitzi Szereto successfully scares up an assortment of stories ranging from the delicate sweetness of romance to the carnal heat of the erotic. The collected authors, including Szereto herself, are artists in their field, bringing out the darkness and desires of the body and soul. This book is worthy of five stars from those who love the Gothic romance and erotica genres.
