In Spring into Summer, a collection of emotionally-charged erotic novellas, four women explore their limits, marked by love, lust, and loss.

Life for Claire Pelletier is changed forever when she meets a professor who teaches her a most important lesson in "A Season for Everything."
Evelyn Sutton goes in search of a man in "Unlocking the Mystery" and discovers the key to her own heart.
With an open mind, Ava Connors attends a party but wonders if reality can ever live up to her hottest fantasies in "Summer Solstice."
In "The Lottery," Sierra Zhao sacrifices herself to numerous men to help a friend, fully aware of the consequences.

With locations in London, Dublin, Cape Cod, and Bangkok, these four women will seek pleasure to alter their lives and push their boundaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Pleasant Surprise 8 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback
It came as something of a surprise that I should consider reading, let alone actually to read a book of erotica, or what is more correctly described as 'literary erotica'. Perhaps it was that I'd come across the author, Eden Baylee [...], through her other activities on the web and social media, both literary and charitable. Whatever the reason, I read Spring into Summer from cover to cover. It is a book of four separate novellas and the sequel to her first book, Fall into Winter, which was published in 2011.

Each of the four novellas presents a completely different story, from a different part of the world, with very different, but well developed characters. Each story has its own unique appeal, which will peak the interest of anyone who reads the book; in other words there is something for everyone here. I know which is my favourite.

As for the sex, well it's in there, as you might expect from such a literary genre, but it's not gratuitous. It is rather more subtle, a little more beautiful and, like a thriller that builds the tension and expectation of the reader, so too the slow development of real-life relationships. One of the stories doesn't have any sex at all, well, at least not between the main characters in the live plot, other than by suggestion, but rather between corresponding confidantes... I'll reveal no more, other than to say this particular story has a special feeling about it that resonates with the heart-rending longings so beautifully written by Helene Hanff in her delightful book, based on a true story,

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mapping of Desire 26 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
'Spring into Summer' encapsulates the author's recurring themes of travel, encounters with different cultures and the sometimes obscure nature of sexual attraction.

Although the book comes under an 'erotica' classification, it is more a literary exercise in sensuality, longing and loss.

'A Season for Everything' - probably my favourite in the collection - tells of the doomed love affair between Claire, a young Canadian visiting London, and a much older Professor of English Literature. I found this tale especially moving; the pain inherent in the narrative simply and tellingly conveyed. Ms Baylee's own love affair with art and poetry informs the writing.

In 'Unlocking the Mystery', the author lives up to her title as the Cartographer of Desire by tracing the progress of a long-distance love affair between two hopeless romantics on either side of the Atlantic.

'Summer Solstice' and 'The Lottery' have more exotic cultural interactions than the other two stories, each in their own way dealing with the redemptive power of sexual love.

If in buying 'Spring into Summer' you are simply looking for pornographic content you are going to be frustrated - probably in more ways than one. However, for those new readers of Ms Baylee who come to this book prepared to open their minds to the literary potential of erotica, they will find this collection a good introduction to the writer's work. Ms Baylee's regular readers will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written and hot 3 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback
I was given this book as a gift and loaded it on my phone to glance at from time to time in interest. I have to say though that once I started reading I found it very difficult to stop. The tales tend to shy away from being overly erotic, concentrating on the emotional development of the character. This means that when you have the erotic scenes (and they are very erotic) they have that added impact. I found it both well written and steamy. The only issue I would have was a minor detail in the second story. As I have lived in Dublin all my life I found it odd that an Irish woman would refer to distance in 'blocks', we don't use that system here. Other than that, a good book that I would recommend to anybody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Hot Erotica by a Fantabulous Writer 28 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I very much enjoyed Eden's brand of erotic offerings. Her characters are believable and likable; her prose are exquisite and elegant; there are plenty of actions which are both exciting and engaging; then her choice of locations are extremely exotic. Let's face it, if you are indulging your good self in romantic, erotic and sexy adventures, wouldn't you pick somewhere like London, Dublin, Cape Cod and Bangkok?

Being an Asian living in the UK, I love the British and Irish Capital cites, for obvious reasons, familiarity being one of them. It was fun for me to `stalk' Eden's characters and `share' their sexual fantasies. Oh no, I don't mean exactly sharing these fantasies per se, but I can easily identify where their innermost desires and raw emotions come from, and why they want to act them out, with real and imaginary partners.

Of the four novellas, my personal favourites are the first and the fourth. I keenly feel the love and loss in "A Season for Everything", as I know how deeply the theme of cancer resonates with the author herself, and many of us readers.

Again, it's my Asian roots which allow me to get inside the mind and body of Sierra Zhao, as she ventures to exotic Bangkok and beyond, in a tale which is sensual and intriguing. Thailand, her sights and sounds, and her people, becomes even more inviting when I came to the last page of "The Lottery'
