Darker Edge of Desire

by Mitzi Szereto

Love, passion and sex…it’s all here in Darker Edge of Desire.

Gothic literature has always possessed a dark attraction ripe with the promise of the forbidden and the sensual. In Darker Edge of Desire, Mitzi Szereto takes the sexualized Gothic and ratchets it up a few notches into the danger zone, opening the door into the darker side of lust and love that only the courageous dare to venture through. Venturing even further into the world of mystery and romance than she did in the critically acclaimed Red Velvet and Absinthe, Szereto creates an atmosphere with a distinct Gothic flavor where we explore our more forbidden desires. In these tales, love and lust (and kink!) know no boundaries, and all nature of beings—from vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts, succubae—abound.

Tread carefully, danger and desire lie ahead!

Books by Mitzi Szereto

"From creatures of the night to hidden passions and even more hidden truths, this volume does not shy away from exploring and bypassing boundaries"

-- Portland Book Review

"Many moments of erotic bliss that required a cold shower to cool down. A good amount of horror too...vampires, werewolves, murder, and lots more from several writers you'll want to keep on your radar." -- Living Dead Magazine

"Diverse, edgy, and infused with fantasy and horror, this chilling anthology of incendiary short stories is certainly not your typical Halloween romance anthology, but it will appeal to fans of the dark, erotic, and forbidden who don't expect traditional love stories or "happily ever afters."" -- Library Journal

"If you're looking for something a little edgy, sometimes morose, and often sinfully sexy, you will find it here." -- Coffee Time Romance

"Darker Edge of Desire does not provide us with experimental horror nor does it give us neatly wrapped stories. What it does provide is excitement, scads of it. Really excellent, each story as delightful as the last." -- Fresh Fiction

"When your midnight cravings come calling, Darker Edge of Desire is the book you want on your nightstand. Wedged between these covers are fourteen tales of seduction and submission, from lust most carnal to virginal awakenings-even (despite the title) moments of achingly tender sweetness. Darker Edge of Desire is a chocolate box assortment of stories that depict passion in all its varieties, most--but not all--of them with a supernatural twist, no two of them the same. Bon appetit." -- Alma Katsu, author of The Taker Trilogy
"In this collection's great dark tales of sex and murder, fear and love, pain and pleasure, we see not only ourselves, but wealso shine a candle on our collective past, and that is a powerful and exciting journey." -- Rachel Caine, author of Glass Houses
