Seduction

'Sexy, unpredictable, sometime alarming, always entertaining. Most of the stories are previously unpublished, they're English, South African and American. There is one oddity - an awful lot of them seem to involve academics. The academics tend to be overweight or dreary to look at, but they star in the best stories... This is nice work - energetic, provocative, not to be taken lying down.'
The Observer

 

Now that sex is more fraught with danger than ever, seduction is an end in itself. The descent into voluptuousness, the surrender of control, pre-coital embarrassment - these are the essential elements of the chase. Here they produce stories as rich and varied as the game of love and chance itself.

'It's a hot little number this one, a page turning selection of steamy scenarios. Twelve writers with brutal humour and insight, explore seduction's many faces: the surrender of control, oblivion of passion and post-coital embarrassment.'
The Weekly Journal

'An unsettling but wonderfully eclectic collection of stories.'
