"The Harder She Comes is a good and hot book filled with erotica about butches and femmes and when the two come together." —Pop My Cherry Review

"Get ready to pull back the covers for a peek at some of the baddest butches and flirtiest femmes going hot and hard in The Harder She Comes. In this sizzlingly sexy collection focusing on the butch/femme dynamic, editor D.L. King gathers together stories with a sizzling intensity to leave you breathless. Featuring the erotic imaginings of some of the most talented writers of the genre (Sinclair Sexsmith, Evan Mora and Rachel Kramer Bussel, to name a few) The Harder She Comes delivers a jolt of electricity that will super-charge your sensual fantasies into overdrive." —Good Vibrations

"Editor DL King found a bunch of stories that go hand in hand, and that fit perfectly into this one book. Many of these stories leave the reader wanting more but occasionally the characters get that rare happy ending that they surely deserve. If you are looking for some quick, fun, and incredibly sexy stories with F/F bases than The Harder She Comes is the perfect book for you!" —Night Owl Reviews

What is it about a pretty girl in a tight skirt bent over to adjust her stockings? Or that hotter-than-hot butch, swaggering into the bar like she owns it, eyes undressing every pretty girl in the place?

Some butches worship at the altar of their femmes fatale and many little girls have a need to serve their big, strong daddies. In The Harder She Comes, we meet girls salivating at the sight of well-filled and packed jeans and bois dreaming of having a beautiful girl’s red lipstick smeared across their mouths. D. L. King has curated a singular set of stories filled with sexy sirens luring unsuspecting butches to their demise on the rocky shores of love and hot, confident women in silk and lace during the day who will do anything to serve their daddies' needs at night. The Harder She Comes is great writing with characters that will stay with the reader for a long, long time — sometimes sweet, always sexy, often romantic, and more than a little dangerous.

D.L. King has edited over a dozen erotica anthologies and her short stories appear in more than five dozen more. A Lambda Literary Award winner, two-time IPPY gold medalist, and one-time silver medalist, she most recently edited the bestselling Slave Girls: Erotic Stories of Submission. She is the author of two novels, The Melinoe Project and The Art of Melinoe. Her work can be found in anthologies such as The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica, Best Women's Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Girl Crazy, Luscious, No Safewords, Yes, Ma'am, and Yes, Sir.
