Thrones of Desire: Erotic Tales of Swords, Mist and Fire

Sold by Simon and Schuster

Thrones of Desire: Erotic Tales of Swords, Mist and Fire is a place where lust and legend abound, and adventure, passion and danger entwine. Think mystical lands and creatures, kings and queens, knights and renegades, heroes and villains, warlords, maidens and princesses. Think battles and danger, honor and dishonor, good and evil. Most of all, think hearts filled with passion and secret desire. This is a place where romantic chivalry is alive and well, but so too is romantic wickedness. This is a place where the good do not always win, and the bad are often more captivating and desirable than their altruistic counterparts. In these lush and timeless landscapes, the battle for flesh can be as important as the battle for power. Intrigue, sorcery, revenge, lawlessness, dark secrets and mysterious elixirs; entanglements with supernatural beings – everything is possible in these magical mythical landscapes. Inspired by Game of Thrones, these imaginative steamy tales transport the reader to fantastical realms.

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
