Fetish: A Collection of Erotic Stories

Anonymous. Entangled Amara, $16.99 trade paper (560p) ISBN 978-1-64937-199-7

This spicy collection of historical erotica from the anonymous author of Aphrodite in Bloom offers 10 taboo-breaking shorts set across 1870s Europe. It opens in Paris with “A Neighboring Hand,” in which an old school chum coaches American heiress Camellia Zimmerfield through a new sexual experience, and travels to the Swiss Alps for “How Do You Do Your Do?” which explores English Lord Ingram Uxton’s hair fetish. In “How Stimulating,” two women in Bohemia experience an unconventional electrical spa service—and discover unexpected love. The standout tales are “The Paddle, Pretty Please?”—which pairs English widow Eleanor, who craves punishment, with her secret admirer, Lucas, who longs to administer it—and “Temptress with a Teapot,” about a Berlin housewife whose husband loves to hear of her extramarital sexual exploits. The author packs significant heat and heart into each sensual tale and, though not every piece will be for every reader, there’s something for any erotica fan. This is sure to titillate. (Oct.)
