Lust is urgent, overpowering, and potent. While in real life readers may not always act every time desire calls, in fiction, they can abandon the safety of propriety to seek out lust and sex wherever they find them. The characters in Women in Lust may vary in the objects of their lust, and how they go about acting on it, but what connects them is that pure impulse for a lo...more

This anthology of twenty erotic stories has the flavor of gossip or confession, since each story is told by a female narrator. The authors are all women (or they fake it well), and most are popular and well-known in the field.

Most of the pairings in these stories are heterosexual, but otherwise, a spectrum of scenarios is presented, from complicated triangles and threesomes to initiation stories to black-leather-and-steel BDSM scenes to cougar stories of middle-aged women getting their second wi...more

Women in Lust is an erotic anthology from the powerhouse that is Rachel Kramer Bussel, and let me tell you, it's HOT.

Containing stories from writers such as Portia Da Costa, Charlotte Stein, Elizabeth Coldwell, Jacqueline Applebee, Justine Elyot, K D Grace, Shanna Germain and Donna George Storey, Women in Lust is an anthology which has a wide variety of voices, styles and scenarios - yet they all have one thing in common: super high quality.

I love to read anthologies because of the variety, yet...more
Women In Lust- anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Women in Lust is a no holds barred anthology sex fest. There isn't much story or plot but there doesn't need to be if the readers just wants a very sexy and even kinky read to keep them entertained Most of the short stories vary from 8-13 pages long and they get right into `it.' This book doesn't sugar coat its stories and the stories vary from: FF, to spanking, bondage and voyeurism. It also include...more

I don't love every single story in this collection, but there are a few VERY good ones. The opener, by Portia Da Costa, gives us Terrence, one of those yummy fictional boyfriends I like to imagine myself with. "Her, Him and Them" by Aimee Pearl is wonderful because it's pure erotica, all want and sensation. "Smoke" by Elizabeth Coldwell is another nice entry - I don't know why Dutch people are so sexy, but they certainly are (even if you're not a big fan of their cigarettes).

In Women in Lust: Erotic Stories, twenty authors devote their energies to considering what and how women desire. From the objects of their desiring to how they want to be wanted, the collection offers a delicious array of women’s lust to choose from. Most generally, I find the anthology’s success to be in the way it plays with the question of women’s desires that so many men have posed and pries it open to find many and varied truths. The volume is full of delightful clichés, finding the hint of...more
I tried to read this book every night,but ended up picking a really busy time. So I didnt quite get to finish it as fast as I had hoped. I read a few stories on some nights. Sometimes only reading one etc. Some of the stories were not very memorable. Boring and kind of vanilla. One in particular left me scratching my head in confusion. However,there were a few stories that I LOVED. Cherry Blossom was my favorite. Rain was really good as well!

I won this from a Goodreads Firstreads giveaway. Forgive the pun, but the prose was rather stiff--And left me cold. I actually got bored and there was a distinctive pattern of condom use in every story, which is great by all means, but it read a little clinical and it tends to take you out of the fantasy. Maybe some of the writers could have been a little more subtle about it, or tried making it sexy somehow...I dunno.
