Best Lesbian Erotica: 2014
Hailed as 'mesmerising' by the InsideOut book club the world's largest LGBT reading group, Cleis' Best Lesbian Erotica series is the standard bearer for the genre. This year Lammy nominee, Kathleen Warnock takes the series to new heights of ecstasy with a collection of smart, sensual and sensational smutty tales. Featuring the most talented writers today, Best Lesbian Erotica 2014 once again plucks the jewels of the best lesbian erotica around, with characters so hot you can almost feel the warmth of their bodies in bed beside you.
""Best Lesbian Erotica 2014" is an excellent collection that I highly recommend. It's well crafted in how the stories are arranged, the stories are diverse, and the characters are well developed. As a whole, it reflects upon on the pleasure of a struggle--the friction between what we need and our ability to fulfill not just our own needs, but the needs of lovers."--Peep's Scoop"This is erotica that rises far above smut. It is evocative, fresh and powerful."--Reviews by Amos LassenOne of the wonders of "Best Lesbian Erotica" is the range of women depicted in these stories: Desi, black, white, femme, butch, cancer survivors and disabled, skater girls and knitters - even skater girls who knit. What unites this disparate group of folks is desire and hot sex. Since this is a Best Of anthology, there's really no such thing as a bad story here.--"Erotica Revealed""The stories in Best Lesbian Erotica 2013 are flowery, gritty, and powerful; female-centric and woman-positive. The selections are a thoughtful blend of realism and fantasy -- not so outrageous that readers can't find themselves in them, but grounded, earthy, erotic stories. The characters feel real, and if one of these women happened to crawl into bed beside you, or slide you a drink at the bar, you would consider yourself lucky, no matter what your sexual orientation." - xoxo"Powerful, memorable, and potent" -- "Curve Magazine""Fresh, powerful, erotic as hell, and creatively engaging, these fictional evocations of lesbian lust, love, and lingering kisses couldn't be hotter if they had just been slipped out of the microwave." -- CleanSheets.com"These women are looking for the edge, and they find it." -- "Gay & Lesbian Review""Cutting-edge seduction and sex." -- "Bay Windows""The quality of writing is second to none." -- Erotica Readers & Writers Association
