Review

"Desire can be so intricately, beautifully twisted, so perfect in its dark and dangerous attraction that no other choice exists but to follow that compelling lure without regard to safety or personal danger, often down paths better not traveled. Yet following that twisted, dark and dangerous way is rife with promise even when tainted with despair. Is the lure truly the darkness, or is it hope? Hope for something more, for something sublime. There's only one way to find out -- all you need do is put fear aside and step into the dark, cross into the "Darker Edge of Desire"."
-- Kate Douglas, author of "Wolf Tales"

"In this collection's great dark tales of sex and murder, fear and love, pain and pleasure, we see not only ourselves, but we also shine a candle on our collective past, and that is a powerful and exciting journey."
--Rachel Caine, author of "Glass Houses, "

"When your midnight cravings come calling, "Darker Edge of Desire" is the book you want on your nightstand. Wedged between these covers are fourteen tales of seduction and submission, from lust most carnal to virginal awakenings--even (despite the title) moments of achingly tender sweetness. "Darker Edge of Desire" is a chocolate box assortment of stories that depict passion in all its varieties, most--but not all--of them with a supernatural twist, no two of them the same. Bon appetit."--Alma Katsu, author of "The Taker Trilogy"

"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"
"If you a looking for something a little edgy, sometimes morose, and often sinfully sexy, you will find it here. What I like about these stories is their originality. They are not your cookie-cutter romance or slasher tales. Here you have a fantastic collection of authors who give you captivating characters and unique story lines." - Coffee Time Romance
""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

"Madness. Darkness. Death, and what might lie beyond. Gothic fiction takes us to the edge of comfort, icing our wonder with a blast of cold terror as we confront the unknown - including the unplumbed depths of our own own hidden desires. Mitzi Szereto's latest anthology marries the tropes of the Gothic genre with graphic erotic content. The results are surprisingly varied, transcending the cliches of windswept moors, haunted mansions and buried crypts to provide some impressively original tales."

Product Description

Love, passion and sex…it’s all here in Darker Edge of Desire.

Gothic literature has always possessed a dark attraction ripe with the promise of the forbidden and the sensual. In Darker Edge of Desire, Mitzi Szereto takes the sexualized Gothic and ratchets it up a few notches into the danger zone, opening the door into the darker side of lust and love that only the courageous dare to venture through. Venturing even further into the world of mystery and romance than she did in the critically acclaimed Red Velvet and Absinthe, Szereto creates an atmosphere with a distinct Gothic flavor where we explore our more forbidden desires. In these tales, love and lust (and kink!) know no boundaries, and all nature of beings—from vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts, succubae—abound.

Tread carefully, danger and desire lie ahead!
