The Women Awaiting You In These Pages Might Be Fierce S In Ancient Greece, Maidens And Princesses Of The Medieval Era, Ingenues Like Alice Awaiting New And Sensual Adventures Beyond The Rabbit Hole, Or Outlaws And Pirates But Each And Every One Is Open To The Delights And Passions Of Flesh And Fantasy Most Of The Couplings Are With Other Women Friends, Confidantes, Instructors, Lovers But The Wealth Of Erotic Encounters Is Not Solely Confined To The Sapphic These Are, After All, A Selection Of Erotist Jean Roberta S Finer Historical Short Tales So Do Not Fear A Bit Of Prick For The Open Petals Which May Be Parted By Another Woman S Hand Embrace What We All Have Down Below, What We Choose To Expose And Explore Wow Jean Roberta s bio says she s an English instructor at a university, and it really shows here in a good way It s no wonder her stories have been published in over 100 publications either they are that good.Whether the stories center on warriors and their secret admirers, or medieval princesses no matter if they are set in ancient Greece or witch hunter Salem, MA there s an edge to the writing that harkens back to another era These stories seem like classics, fables, and fairy tales I found myself drawn right into the familiar framework of the stories that made the erotic content all the interesting and powerful.Favorites Hubris, the tale of an warrior and the girl whose fascination turns into a way of life that is so eloquently explained that I wondered how Jean managed to immerse herself in the ancient, fantasy world so deeply that her words read like they came from a real diary.Sister Mary Agnes because I ve always had a hot spot for erotica that toys with the church In this one, we meet a nun and a convent full of women harboring secrets that prove to be the undoing for some, and the salvation for others.Soul Search for its language and for taking on a disturbing era in American history and making it hot.The World Turned Upside Down for its mystery and character development and surprise ending.One of the things I admire most about what s presented here is how none of the stories are preachy, yet most share a good message about acceptance and freedom to be the sexual beings we are The writing is clean and crisp and a pleasure to read.I m thrilled I was given a copy for review and happy to give this my highest rating.
