As a rule I rate each story in an anthology individually but since some of these stories are very very short I have rated this book as a whole. All the stories have a paranormal element to them and are very sexy and explicit. Unlike many erotic books, some of the characters are not young hot singles, but are married middle-aged and with children proving that it doesn’t matter how old we are we can still have a very exciting sex life. This is an Erotica Readers & Writers Association Anthology with the Forward by Bob Buckley and it is the first in a series which will feature the works and talents of various authors.
