For as long as humans have known to look for their own reflections, they have pondered the magical question: What would you find if you step past your own reflection and into the mirror world? In these five stories, the answer is passion and fire. Five women step up to the mirror and come out the other side in the midst of their hottest erotic fantasies, whether that involves reviving the dying embers of a love affair, seducing a beloved old friend... or perhaps just finding out for sure what some women have long suspected: that sex really is better with yourself for a partner! These heroines take risks, brave it all, and step into the unknown, between dimensions, between worlds, to lay claim to the love and heat that they both deserve and crave.
Ghosts are everywhere: they haunt the movies we watch, the dreams we keep, and the places we choose to visit or re-visit. Ghosts are history. They are searching for a way to repeat what they’ve done already, or to try things they have never done before. In these seductive stories, characters revisit, or are visited by, old friends who were dying to be lovers, or old lovers of family, or ghosts attracted to strangers.
Like a Chill Down Your Spine: Erotic Ghost Stories includes contributions by Pushcart Prize nominee Trish DeVene, Angela Goldsberry, T.C. Mill, Annabeth Leong, Kimber Vale, David Hubbard, and Cristofer Darius Arthur. Come experience the erotic thrill of the ghostly at the hands of these fiction maestros.
