A sigh then, so soft, she barely heard it, but there it was again: a sigh. A breath of air, right by the bed.
“You dream of me, then,” said a voice. “Why? Have you fallen in love with the dead?”
He chuckled softly. “But I think you have. You call to me with this passion…”
“No.” Her voice came out just a whisper.
“When you die at sea, like I did, the water is your grave. You feed it with your flesh,” he said. “So cold down there, for marrow, bones… tissue coming undone… Have you ever made love to a dead man?” he asked. “Have you ever made love to the sea?”
“No…” Shivering slightly, at the verge of tears, her voice hardly carried the word.
“But will you lend me your warmth for tonight?”
She said yes. She was scared. More than scared; terrified. But who was she to deny the dead? Death had already been within her. In her yes was a sweet surrender.
An anthology of erotic encounters with death that balances sexy and horror in a way that makes readers squirm.
Unattainable love has always been one of the favorite themes of romance. Who could be more unattainable than the dead? Here are ten erotic tales of love and loss, terror and hope, and of course desires that cannot or perhaps should not be fulfilled. Here is the “little death” alongside the big Death. Here are people dying—and killing—for love.
Touched by Death is a erotic horror collection of stories filled with the living and the dying, the dead and the ones who come back. Within you’ll find attempts at reviving lost love, new views on courting death, and evidence that obsessive vampire stalkers are not always romantic—though zombies sometimes are.
