Snuggling under the covers with this cheeky little book will leave you panting for more as you quickly plough through each sexy short story. In Bed With is a naughty collection of fiction provocateur guaranteed to have you blushing.
In Bed With is a hot and raunchy short story collection of romance, love, fantasy and of course sex.Â Each short story is written by an award-winning bestselling writer, but with a kinky twist – to protect their identities – each writer uses an x-rated pseudonym (the name of their first pet and first street). Can you work out who’s who?
I found it a fun and provocative read, and was tantalised and teased by the imaginative and risquÃ© storylines.Â The storylines can be relegated to the soft eroticism genre with some reminding me of AnaÃ¯s Nin, hailed by many critics as one of the finest writers of female erotica (she was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, a suburb of Paris in 1903). I think women writing for women in this genre makes it a much more enjoyable read, think Nikki Gemmell’s Bride Stripped Bare.
The adult-only tales will surprise featuring a sex addict, a Spanish percussionist, a topless gardener, a Kiwi farm-hand, virgins, prostitutes, ballerinas, college research assistants, new ladettes and a spanking dominatrix; these racy affairs, illicit liaisons, and kinky propositions will have you hot, bothered, and maybe in need of a lie down (Penguin).
So slip under your covers with award-winning bestselling writers; Jessica Adams, Maggie Alderson, Emma Darwin, Louise Doughty, Stella Duffy, Imogen Edwards-Jones, Esther Freud, Joanne Harris, Linda Jaivin, Rachel Johnson, Tobsha Learner, Kathy Lette, Emily Maguire, Chris Manby, Jane Moore, Adele Parks, Justine Picardie, Bella Pollen, Helen Razer, Santa Sebag Montefiore, Ali Smith, Joan Smith, Emma Tom, Daisy Waugh, and Fay Weldon.
