"Every story in this collection, nineteen stories, tries to answer Freud’s famous question: “What do women want?” As Molly Weatherfield points out in the forward, there is no single answer. Not only is it a question of desire, but how each story fits together as a whole. This is intelligent erotica, with well-told stories considering all manner of wanting." —San Francisco Book Review

"The unexpected trysts in these tales are bound to give readers a few ideas for the bedrooms and beyond. The short stories come from some of the most daring erotic writers out there today." —Adult Video News

"The collection of erotic stories found in Voracious will have you questioning everything you thought you knew about sexual pleasure. Actually, this book needs to be sold with a pair of fireproof gloves because the heat coming off of these pages is enough to singe your bare hands. It's not a book that you can adequately describe. Voracious must be experienced and not simply talked about." —Fresh Fiction

"Voracious is just what the title suggests. Each of the nineteen stories in this collection meets editor Violet Blue’s exquisite standards of taste and sheer kink. These are not your run of the mill girl meets flogger stories. Oh no. This is the stuff that new fetishes are born from. These stories will haunt your daydreams and have you begging for more." —BDSM Book Reviews

"Voracious is the perfect collection of tales that will have you savoring each tale as if it were the most well-crafted piece of salted caramel around. These stories are neither boring or safe. This collection will push pass any sensual boundaries that you did not know that you even had. And you will be the better for it. Voracious: Erotica for Women makes the perfect purse sized gift the keeps you endlessly entertained whether you are waiting on line for the bus or trying to get in a few pages before bedtime, you will no doubt enjoy the time you spent with the latest anthology from editrix extraordinaire Violet Blue." — Night Owl Reviews

All steamed up and nothing to read? Voracious: Erotica for Women opens a Pandora’s box of pleasures, with scorching encounters, dreamy partners, and heart-pounding thrills that won’t put a run in your fishnets (and a few that will). In Teresa Noelle Roberts’ “Voice of an Angel,” an opera costumer helplessly infatuated with a countertenor — a man who sings a female part in baroque opera —makes interesting discoveries as she measures his inseam. In Susie Hara’s “Puffy Lips,” a refined woman indulges her primitive urge to take what she wants from a modern-day caveman in a dark alley. Kathleen Bradean’s “Chill” describes the lengths to which the heroine will go to enact her unusual, icy fetish at an exclusive “spa.” “Kink was the candy coating that made sex tastier,” she explains. “Fetish was sweet dark chocolate, straight up.” Stylishly edited by sex guru Violet Blue, these edgy erotic treats showcase the most daring, best-written erotica available. And, like a gorgeous lover, it complements any bedroom decor.

Violet Blue is a best-selling author of sex manuals and editor of erotica. She writes for and has been interviewed by O: The Oprah Magazine, The History Channel, and Penthouse, and in 2013 was named one of the Best Sex Educators in San Francisco by SF Weekly. She lives in San Francisco.
