"Red Velvet and Absinthe" explores love and lust with otherworldly partners who, by their sheer fantastical nature, evoke passion and desire far beyond that which any normal human being can inspire. Although the greats such as Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier are long dead, these contemporary authors keep the Gothic spirit alive and well by interpreting it in new and exciting ways. "Red Velvet and Absinthe" offers readers a collection of unique and original stories that conjure up the atmospheric and romantic spirit of the Gothic masters (and mistresses) but take things a bit further by adding to the brew a generous dosage of eroticism. Lie back and listen to the wind howling outside your window as you read these stories in the flickering light of a candle, the absinthe you're sipping warming your body like the caressing touch of a lover's fingers . . .
..".For anyone who's fantasised about being ravished by Edward Cullen or Jacob Black (that's all of us then.)"
."all these stories embrace the emotional and sensory richness integral to the Gothic tale."
-San Francisco Book Review
"The title says it all: a collection of erotic romance by well-known erotic author and anthology editor Mitzi Szereto. Vampires, ghosts, werewolves, things that go bump in the night, creatures that would be right at home in a story by Stoker or Poe, coagulate on these pages, raw and exposed as readers haven't seen them before, draped in danger and romance, lit by flickering candles and red tapestries that conjure desire beyond mere mortality."
-Portland Book Review
"Regardless of one's personal taste in terms of relationships and of literary labels, what really counts is the quality of fiction... If you're not too prudish and if you appreciate good fiction, I'm sure you will enjoy this book."
-The Short Review
"The passion you discover is worth sneaking off into the bedroom with your other and discovering your own passion. Just beware of what lurks in those corners..."
-All I Want and More
"With truly bizarre and just slightly paranormal and everything in between, Red Velvet and Absinthe offers readers many delicious stories to choose from."
"The focus here is on quality writing and story-telling. If you like the paranormal or are turned on by the unusual, I can't recommend this enough."
-Of Sex and Love
"I love compilation books and this one did not disappoint me. Some stories were written so well that I didn't want them to end. Other stories told just the right amount about the characters to leave me thinking about them long after the story ended."
-Kissin Blue Karen
"These stories bring out an atmosphere of intrigue, full of dark and twisted emotions we can all feel in the right light...in this case it is candle light that will inspire
