Thrones of Desire is a place where lust and legend abound, and adventure, passion and danger entwine. Think mystical lands and creatures, kings and queens, knights and renegades, heroes and villains, warlords, maidens and princesses. Think battles and danger, honor and dishonor, good and evil. Most of all, think hearts filled with passion and secret desire. This is a place where romantic chivalry is alive and well, but so too is romantic wickedness. This is a place where the good do not always win, and the bad are often more captivating and desirable than their altruistic counterparts. In these lush and timeless landscapes, the battle for flesh can be as important as the battle for power. Intrigue, sorcery, revenge, lawlessness, dark secrets and mysterious elixirs; entanglements with supernatural beings — everything is possible in these magical mythical landscapes. Inspired by Game of Thrones these imaginative steamy tales transport the reader to fantastical realms.
I really enjoyed this anthology; it has a great selection of erotic short stories which I found to be rather tantalizing. I have always enjoyed stories about dragons and lords and ladies but they have to be told right in order for me to read them and keep my interest. I have to say I am rather picky when it comes to this genre.
This compilation however kept my interest throughout the whole thing. I liked that the stories were short and to the point but yet they told a complete story. There were a few that left a little to the imagination but that is too be expected in a compilation of short stories. There will always be one or two the reader doesn’t care for at least in my opinion there is.
I enjoyed the style of writing as well, it was done flawlessly. It took me back to a mystical time where lords ruled and dragons flew around freely. I could only imagine the possibilities. I also liked that they erotica was talked about in the preface, explaining that it is usually either for men or women never both. I feel that this anthology could easily be considered appealing to both genders. I would recommend this book. It was a very lovely compilation.
