I received my author's copy of this anthology more than a year ago, but hadn't had time to dive into it until recently. Overall I was very impressed by the quality, diversity, heat and heart I found within these pages. I've read dozens of stories by Rachel Kramer Bussell. Her sensual and flirty "French Fried" has to be one of the very best. Catherine Paulssen's "Misty and Me" plays with the notion of romantic cliches as a woman falls in love with her best friend. The uncertainty in this tale rea ...more

(From my review at The Lesbrary:

I was excited to be able to get hold of a copy of this through The Lesbrary, as I have not picked up the last couple of years’ worth of editions. Radclyffe does well once again with seventeen stories meant to warm the heart – and libido.

Is this book for real? Like some of the stories are cute but some of them are There's alot of ridiculous cheesyness and awkward food-sex comparisons.
For example: "I am like cake in an oven, my pelvis, my clitoris, my g-spot, all rising, leavening, my cunt like egg batter, drippy and rich"
"...then picks up another fry, dips it in a pool of ketchup that somehow now seems like a sex sauce whips up just for us"
Who writes this shit??????????????????? It's terrible!!

This was an anthology of very short stories about lesbian romance by various writers. At the end of the book there is a section of "about the authors". It provides a bit about the author and provides their web sites.

When I first received this book I was a little hesitant reading short stories and not a whole book about a central character. I wanted to read one long story! Then I started to read these stories. They are very sensual and romantic so

Perhaps my favorite of the collection thus far. Character diversity is more fundamental to the quality of writing this time around, for which I'm grateful.

There still remains a small mountain of cliches and archetypes, but the editorial staff seems to have keened into letting them die away (e.g., How many stories have to mention Melissa Etheridge?). But with more contemporary writing comes more contemporary narratives: stories of marriage/divorce; stories of open bisexuality; stories of the harm
