Best Women's Erotica 2008 delivers risky, romantic, heart-pounding thrills. Joyful, daring, and authentic, these 21 steamy stories revel in erotic adventure, from the sparks between strangers to the knowing caresses of long-time lovers. In ''Penalty Fare,'' a Londoner rides train after train without a valid ticket, until, on an early morning journey to Bristol she finds the conductor who knows just how to punish her for trying to skip the fare. In ''Winter Heat,'' a woman finds that each year, the winter's first snowfall reminds her of a cold night when she was 18 and the stranger who taught her that ''passion can be found and shared in the most unusual of places.'' And in ''You Can Do Mine,'' Cline finally gets to try out her purple dildo and leather harness with her new lover Leo, the first man to give the right answer when she tells him ''you can do mine if I can do yours.''--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
