A Rae Review – Erotic Nights Anthology

Posted in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

Monsters Cum At Night by Eve Langlais

Being a vampire sucks, especially when you can’t find others of your kind. That all changes one Halloween night when dark, delicious and kinky comes along to seduce me. I never imagined a threesome with a human male and my new fanged lover would fulfill my hungers, both the bloody and erotic kind. Lucky me, I’m a fast learner.


Couldn’t quite get to grips with this one…might be that for the first time ever the fact that it’s written in first person bothered me.  I really didn’t like the heroine and really just couldn’t get into the story.  The scenes with her new vampire lover and the human were fairly hot, but the cutesy ending and her shear dimwittedness just really spoiled it for me!


Date Night by Nicole Austin

New mother Savannah Black’s life lacks only one thing—sex. Whenever the mood struck something always got in the way. Well not anymore. Savannah is taking matters into her own hands, removing all the obstacles and making a hot date with her hunky husband.


Quite light on the supernatural, heavy in the erotic, this title has to be my favourite of the bunch and what a way to start the anthology!  You quickly understand Savannah’s frustration at not being able to get her mitts on her gorgeous husband after the birth of their twins and have to admire the lengths she goes to to get his attention.  Short and steamy,with a believable couple and back story.  Love it!



Night of Rapture by Madison Layle
Lexi Volfe has been running scared ever since a night of celebration ended tragically. Left orphaned and alone, she’s returned to the place where it all began in search of answers only to discover a sexy shifter who’s been seeking her as his mate all his life.

I wouldn’t quite call this an erotic short story…..It’s a cutsey PNR short story that honestly left me feeing a little uninspired.  Honestly I was expecting a little more in the way of heat in the bedroom scenes, but maybe I should remember that the heroine is only 17 and that maybe it was more appropriate for it to be more the love of mated pairs and soul mates.


Night Magic by Anna Leigh Keaton

Halloween’s never been anything special…just another night to sit alone, watch scary movies, and eat a ton of chocolate. But tonight’s different. After wandering into a new little sex shop, and finding a toy like no other, Tammy is in for one big surprise come midnight!


I totally loved this one just for the fact that it made me laugh so much!  Tammy finally plucks up the courage to walk into a sex shop on Halloween.  Cue gypsy curses and a very realistic sex toy on the shelf! You have to read it to believe it.  Hilarious!

One Of These Nights by Josee Renard

Being a half breed Other who turns blue when it rains isn’t easy in the wet city of Vancouver. And Mary Lou’s already complicated life becomes even more so when she runs into a kitsune half breed on the beach, a man who is, according to the rules of the half bred world, her mate. They won’t have a choice about being together if they spend more than a few minutes together and if they touch? It’s the rest of the life. Both Jake and Mary Lou realize the problems, but they can’t resist – and the few hours they force themselves to spend getting to know each other only make the combustion when they inevitably end up in each other’s arms even hotter.


Totally didn’t get this one.  After shaking hands Mary Lou and Jake realise that they are fated to be mates and if they touch again they will be bound together forever.  But they’re strangers, so decide to spend the next three hours sat in a cafe talking to decide if they can live with each other for the rest of their lives.  I know that this was meant to heighten the sexual tension and make it all the sweeter when they finally did get together but it just left me cold and uncaring about their fate.


The Night Shift by Sable Grey

Sam is stuck somewhere between the living and the dead doing Halloween detail. He’s a monster under the bed. All he has to do is jump out and scare Roxy before Halloween. If he can do his job, he can go to heaven. If he doesn’t, he’ll be stuck doing the night shift forever.


Another funny one here! To try and get to heaven, Sam’s job is to hide under the bed in monster form, jump out and scare Roxy. However each night he’s forced to lie there listening to Roxy give blow jobs to her loser boyfriend, who then promptly falls asleep so Sam can’t do his job!  A really lovely little story, that’s not so steamy and rather cute, but I liked it anyway!


A Rainy Night by Deanna Lee

Norah has ignored her gifts for many years, but takes them up again to summon herself a toy of the male variety to play with, Ethan.  This is definitely a story to be continued….


A steamy little taster of whats to come from this pair I hope.  Love that when Ethan is summoned he comes no matter what he’s doing, even straight from the shower!! And lets face it ladies we’d all like to summon a hottie on demand every now and again!!


A mixed bunch as always from short story collections!  A couple in there that I really like and would recommend, a couple I would say skip, but hey! That’s just me! 🙂
