Eurydice dipped a foot into the sun-warm spring. “Sweet ladies of the water,” she called. “Would you like to dance at my wedding? Silver-tongued Orpheus will play and sing for his esteemed guests.”

“Or-phe-us,” the water sighed, its surface rippling. The silt at the bottom bubbled. A pale arm emerged, as strong and slender as a young tree.

“Yes, Orpheus! He will be my husband!” Eurydice dove eagerly into the water and took hold of the hand, helping the Naiad out of the sucking sand.

The nymph clasped the offered hand and crawled up Eurydice, her skin cold and slippery. She darted between Eurydice’s legs, her moss-green hair tickling her thighs. She wrapped her arms around the young woman’s stomach and surged up to break the surface, her pebbled nipples scraping Eurydice’s.

Eurydice gasped, her lungs suddenly tight.

“The wife of Orpheus,” the Naiad purred. “We have heard him sing. Is his tongue worth the silver of its sound?” She winked. A clever hand darted between Eurydice’s legs, parted her folds.

Liquid Longing – Anthology

An Erotic Anthology of the Sacred and Profane

From Annabeth Leong’s penetrating view of the sensual, the sacred, and the profane comes an anthology of erotic tales of wonder. Passion flows, mercurial, through these eleven tales of sex, death, and rebirth. Curiosity mingles with shame, anger revels in worship, exploring desire of all types. Here are dead gods, undead starlets, and immortal creatures hungry for connection—a collection of love letters to human nature, with no easy answers among them.

Instead you will find intimate legends and infinite possibility. For every dark soul pining for something beyond their grasp, there is a moment of ecstasy to tantalize the heart and mind. The stories here do not represent the safe, sane, and consensual, and no awareness of risk can prepare you for the ultimate sacrifice.

Come, immerse yourself in Liquid Longing.

Timeless Lust – Anthology

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.
