Beyond Innocence by Emma Holly
Beyond Innocence by Emma Holly

I can only agree with the other reader here - this is a great Emma Holly novel. I too have read some of Emma's contemporary erotic novels and this is an excellent read too - full of life and good fun for the reader. There is a wonderful weaving together of erotica and period romance and this allows Emma to be very tender and sensitive with her characters as well as being explicit and passionate with them too - what a fabulous blend! Her sensual voice really does gets shown to full advantage in the period setting. A great read and fun for the more traditional romance reader too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange and seductive, 29 Jun 2002
This collection of futuristic erotic stories proves that sex is and should be an integral part of the intelligent readers world. There's a vision of technical efficiancy in some of these stories, an eeriness about others; each and every story portrays a convincing vision of a future world, be it negative or positive in its attitude to sexuality. The stories shows us how sexuality is a crucial part of the make-up of that imagined culture - as it is for us in todays societies - and as with all good stories they both entertain and make you think.
For anyone who enjoys sci-fi/fantasy or erotica with a twist, books brought out on the Circlet label are the ones for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great all-rounder, 18 Jun 2002
Emma Holly manages to create the perfect mix of ingredients here (no pun intended!) for a quality erotic novel. Excellent plot and characterisation, well-written inticing sex scenes, marvelously handled sense of humour, and a dubious yet compelling hero for us - great stuff! Keep up the good work, Emma!
