5.0 out of 5 stars Earth Magic June 18 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This single-author collection of lesbian erotica by Sacchi Green includes stories that first appeared in anthologies such as Best Women's Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Best Transgender Erotica, and two anthologies edited (and co-edited) by Sacchi herself. It's a pleasure to find them all in one place.

The strength of these stories is in the imagery, especially the sensual descriptions which seem to have no direct connection to sex. In every story, the setting sets the tone and blends with the sex scenes and the physical characteristics of the characters. In some cases, a spectacular natural environment (the Grand Canyon, the coast of New England) seems to inspire sex between women which could not have occurred anywhere else, or in any other way.

In "Petroglyphs," a woman who is at home in the wilderness senses that she has company:

"Something moved among the Douglas firs where the forest sloped upward toward burnished rock. The short hairs at the nape of Sigri's neck prickled with the sense of being watched."

Sigri's mare shows a similar reaction.

A person with skin tones to match the burnished rock attacks Sigri, who fights back with the skill of long practice. Then the reader learns that the wrestling match is a game, not a historical battle of First Nations warrior against Viking explorer. The two women have an old agreement about which moves determine the winner. As the play-fight segues immediately into grappling of a different kind, the reader learns more about their relationship, and Sigri's commitment to her "wife" on the ranch.

Rock formations play a large role in this story, as well as in "Of Dark and Bright," "Long Meg," and "Bright Angel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all May 30 2011
By Karen Purvis - Published on Amazon.com

This book was absolutly great. There is something for everyone. Each story is easily read in a short time period and yet the character development is tremendous. In almost all the stories I felt as if I was intruding on a very private moment. You get a real feel for being in the scene with the characters. I enjoyed each of the stories in its own right and definitely want to read more from Ms. Green.

Wow...I feel like a time traveler. These short stories took me to a different era with each passing tale. Very unique and risky characters, plots, and sexual encounters. I will definitely be looking up more from this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Remembrance July 5 2011
By D. L. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I love the way Sacchi Green writes. I can get lost in her prose faster and more completely than anyone else's, I think. There's an intimacy and an etherial quality, even when the story is hard-edged. These stories would be erotic, even without the sex, and the sex is glorious.

I'd read several of these before, but that wasn't a drawback; it was, rather, like revisiting old friends and the ultimate reunion lay in reading the final story, "Alternate Lives." How wonderful, to open and close a collection with the same characters--to come full-circle.

As much as I loved "Alternate Lives," though, I think my favorite story may have been "Long Meg." Wow, talk about leading you down a path. My mind strayed to Alice and the white rabbit. I found myself saying, "Don't eat it," and then saying,"Don't eat that, either!" Of course, Sacchi beat me to it! Although I couldn't think of anything better to eat, at that point. (You're just gonna have to read it, I'm afraid...)

I've loved "The Outside Edge" since first reading it in Girl Crazy. "Dietrich Wears Army Boots" is a joy and I was thrilled to see "A Ride to Remember" here. I had the pleasure of reading it a while ago and am so happy it found a home in this collection. I'm not going to mention every story, just know that each piece in this book is stellar; a lovely book in which to lose yourself.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful bedtime stories March 19 2014

Format:Paperback
This collection of 13 stories by Sacchi Green is well-written, diverse, and HOT. I couldn't pick a favorite which is saying a lot. There's a reason that Sacchi Green is a recipient of the Lambda Literary Award. I like to read one story before bedtime to send myself off with sexy dreams.
