It starts with a feast for your eyes--a cover adorned with a curvy dark-skinned female torso against a background of midnight blue. With the opening story, "Night Music," the treats turn to the auditory when a young woman is seduced by a super-sexy violinist after a concert. Throughout the book you'll find luscious smells and tastes in abundance to satisfy your cravings for both hot sex scenes and lyrical prose. But what really satisfies about the offerings here--because it's relatively rare in erotica--is how much I cared about the characters in the stories. The down-to-earth car mechanic in "Grease," the proper Indian restaurant hostess with a wilder side in "Special Delivery," and the protagonist of "Monisha" who was cut off by her family after she came out, but finds a warmer way to pass the Christmas holiday all come to life as real people. And sex is always better with someone you know and love. Buy this book--you won't come away hungry!
