Email or call for price.
Reaching far beyond the confines of traditional erotica, prepare to explore the intersections of ace and kink, of pan and submissive, of exquisite torment and explicit consent.
Testing the boundaries of pleasure and pain . . . To be so full of longing you ache for release . .
A mysterious warrior at the Renaissance Faire.
An elder reunited with a lost love.
A bottom with chronic pain.
A new play party for a long-term couple.
A fantasy speed-dating night.
A dress-up doll.
A femme gangbang...
Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 4 has it all!
Written by a refreshing group of individuals of various genders and sexualities,
Chance has been in love only once, but it wasn't with the girlfriend she stayed with for far too long. The same girlfriend who dropped Chance when she became too inconvenient. Or maybe just boring.
To bury her disappointment, Chance tries to return to the woman she loved back when she was too afraid to be herself. A stud attracted to other studs.
