Exclusive Excerpt: BEST WOMEN’S EROTICA: VOLUME 2

Best Women's Erotica edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

We’re so excited to feature another book edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel! Best Women’s Erotica: Volume 2 lives up to exactly what we loved about Volume 1. Strong characters to go with your steamy scenes? We’re 100% on board. Which is why we’ve got a (not so safe for work) sneak peek below:
