Each story in this sensually erotic anthology is a must read! These authoresses have definitely given a new meaning to the word Creepin'! They all blend the erotic and revenge notions with ease and precision. I recommend this anthology to readers looking for a sensual read that includes werewolves, vampires, fallen angels, phantom entities and a little bit of that voodoo from N'awlins y'all.
