Mina Kelly lives in one of England’s most historic cities. During the day she cooks from Roman recipes and swings medieval swords, trying to convince the tourists that history is more than just a pretty background to a photograph. From this she draws inspiration for her mixed up myths and flirtatious fairy tales, and has an especial fondness for things that go bump in the night.
Becky knows better than to be trapped by the tide at night, but it’s funny how a bottle of cheap vodka can overcome an entire upbringing by the sea. She grew up with all the myths, too, but when her cute rescuer invites her into deep waters for a swim it’s not so much the mer as the maid that makes Becky hesitate. (F/F)
Since his husband, Clint, died, Morgan’s been able to be his own man, living his own life without the burden of living up to Clint’s example. Clint was gorgeous, heroic, sensitive, a generous lover…. And perfectly insufferable. Oan, on the other hand, is everything Clint wasn’t—rude, selfish, and terrible in bed, and he hogs all the hot water in the communal showers, too. Oan is far from perfect, but maybe he’s just what Morgan needs right now. (M/M)
Horace doesn’t like Propertius; not his poetry, his accent, or his clothes… And he really, really doesn’t like the way he keeps flirting with Virgil. But maybe Propertius is just the nudge Horace and Virgil need to take their relationship in a new direction. (M/M/M)
Erotic Stories in the Ancient World
There have always been lusts that transcend limits. The rush of fire in the blood, the hunger for touch, the compulsion to bury oneself in the flesh of another. Ancient storytellers enraptured audiences with tales of love and lust, of the dangerous passions of gods and heroes and monstrous creatures, pursued sometimes to destruction.
These modern interpretations of those ancient themes span histories and cultures from Greece and Rome to Egypt and the Holy Lands, stories of love and betrayal, of vengeful gods and goddesses, and pleasurable peace. There is much more to a palace eunuch than meets the eye. One man must face his greatest sins, while another battles to save his lover’s life. A woman must balance appeasing her ethereal deity and her earthly desires, and another is imprisoned behind the bars of a gilded cage.
Eleven tales of intense lust in the ancient world crafted by ForbiddenFiction’s best authors, ready for you to peel back the cover and indulge your carnal appetites.
An anthology of bedtime stories for adults!
Just what kind of happy goes into “happily ever after?” As children, it was enough that Pinocchio got to be a real boy and that Red wasn’t eaten by the wolf. As adults, we have a slightly different perspective. Being a real boy means having boy parts, and being eaten by someone big and bad doesn’t mean quite the same thing it once did.
Ever wonder what mermaids do with the swimmers they seduce? Or why a dragon might prefer a castle-guarded princess to a nice, easy field of sheep? What if your fairy godmother wasn’t circumspect in what wishes could be granted, or if that dainty little fairy had a much bigger appetite than one might guess?
