Copy recieved in exchange for an honest review.

Now, knowing what i like to read, how could I not enjoy an anthology with this title.

4 stories here, all 4 with a unique twist to them. A couple more on the straight erotica side as opposed to Romantic Erotica.

The Lying, The Witch & The Wardrobe - Well researched and interesting. I enjoyed this, and like how the use of the Poem Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti was used and woven into what is a very s

Smoking Hot Paranormal Erotica

THE IMMORTAL LONGING OF BRENNA BANG, by Liz Everly) - Tongue-in-cheek Vampire Erotica

I loved this sexy and humorous stake on vampires and writers of vampire romance! It is told in the first person POV, the narrator being Brenna Bang, a successful author of vampire erotic romance.

Brenna is shocked when it appears that one of her smexy vamps has taken shape. If this is the case how can this be so? At first she thinks he is a figment of her lurid dreams, but he soon en

The Lady Smut Book of Dark Desires by Liz Everly is a collection of paranormal erotic tales that are sure to race hearts and raise temperatures. You have to love an anthology like this that doesn't take itself too seriously and is just good dirty fun.



THE IMMORTAL LONGING OF BRENNA BANG - is the tale of a vampire that moves through computers to seduce and enchant his prey.

THE LYING, THE WITCH & THE WARDROBE - is the tale of the history of a family and their relationship with the goblins that hid

This is an anthology of paranormal erotica of varying lengths and sensuality.
To start with we have the The Lying, The Witch & The Wardrobe, a story about Jeanie who loses her job and returns home to live with her mother and grandmother while she reassesses what she wants to do. She has to deal with small town mentality, an old flame and a wardrobe that hides secrets from the past. The emphasis here was on witch magic more than sensuality.

In The Immortal Longing of Brenna Bang we get to meet a l

3.5 Stars

A gathering of pretty good talent all coming together in four
different stories.. From authors I had yet to experience.
Each story is a well blend of character and story-lines.
A bit of magic and mystery, with the Witch and the wardrobe.
It was interesting and fun. if I had to pick a favorite thought
it would be The Immortal Longing of Brenna Bang.. A immortal
that’s a tech genius, that was pretty awesome. (my love of vamps).

An excellent compilation of 4 sexy paranormal reads. The stories are sexy and suspenseful. A little something for everyone to escape into the paranormal world, demons, vampires, goblins and a Dionysian god. The stories are fast paced, entertaining and sexy. Enjoy!

Sexsomnia – It’s not what you think

It’s erotic romance, no, it’s erotica. Um, no, it’s paranormal. In fact, it’s all three. And why should you have to choose? Whatever your take on it, Sexsomnia delivers some of the things I most enjoy in a book: mystery, magic, hot, hot sex… oh, and love. Never forget the love.

I went into this expecting pure erotica, since Sexsomnia is presented alongside some pretty dark examples of the genre. But it mixed me all up, swinging me into the world of erotic romanc

Shelves: erotica
Lady Smut bloggers Madeline Iva, Liz Everly, C. Margery Kemp and Elizabeth Shore offer a novella and three shorts that mix fantasy, passion and the search for sexual self-awareness.

First off--I have to confess that I don't normally read erotica. It's generally too graphic for me (and I like my stories steamy). It's the terminology. I guess I'm from the generation that prefers code words for body parts. So I approached reading this collection with some trepidation.

I'm glad to report, however, tha

I read this anthology in one sitting. The four sexy tales - each one different but equally compelling -- takes a reader on a fun, sexy romp involving vampires that emerge from computer screens, a succubus, hot goblin men and faerie rings, a possession, a Greek God and more. The dialogue in all four stories was witty and smart. And the sex had the right amount of spice and sweet to make me want more. Expect the unexpected. If you are looking for escapism erotica, you've come to the right place. L ...more

This book was not really what I expected but was still good nonetheless. From the title, I expected more erotica, less paranormal I suppose. I do happen to like both genre's so I was still happy reading the book. I love all the author's storytelling ability. I think my favorite story would have been Jenny, Jennifer the succubus. ...more

I won this book as a Goodreads giveaway. It has multiple imaginary stories of deep romance. Some I felt were very good. Others I felt fell short.

Goblins, vamps, demons and a Dionysian god. A paranormal fans ultimate collection. Unfortunately the concept is better than the reality. A short story should not be short on plot, character development and romance. There is a lot of great foundations to be found, but exposition, chemistry and pacing left me wanting. However, Sexsomnia is the singular exception. With a well rounded plot, charming characters (when they aren't being possessed), and an interesting narrative it kept and held my atten ...more

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review
This was an anthology of four short stories in the paranormal universe. I found that the stories were well written and the main characters were fully realized. However, the stories cut off at odd points, definitely not full stories. Also, for being in the erotic category, I found those particular scenes kind of lacking.
