Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: Passion and Best Lesbian Romance 2011 (February 8, 8-10 PM)

Kristina Wright Kristina Wright
Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club! It’s February, so we’re turning down the lights, lighting a few candles, popping the cork on a bottle of wine and exploring the romance of erotica!



The first book being discussed tonight is Passion, edited by award-winning author Rachel Kramer Bussel. Love and sex have always been intimately intertwined--and Passion shows just how delicious the possibilities are when they mingle in this sensual collection. Be swept away as you travel to Paris, Greece and Beverly Hills. Get stuck in an elevator, take a bubble bath, and explore nature in some very luscious ways. Indulge in "Big Bed Sex," get geeky with "My Dark Knight," find "An Easy Guy to Fall On," discover why there's "No Risk, No Reward," go to work with "The Efficiency Expert," and "Rekindle" an old flame. Featuring work by talented authors, Passion offers succulent stories sure to quicken heartbeats while appealing to the most romantic of souls.

The second selection for the evening is Best Lesbian Romance 2011 edited by Radclyffe and captures the lyricism of love from the first blush of recognition to the forever embrace of shared hearts. Radclyffe has gathered a collection as varied as our unique and irreproducible experiences of falling in love. A practiced cynic learns the power of "Hearts and Flowers" in Theda Hudson's tale of a first anniversary. Sexy Shakespeareans discover that the real romance takes place offstage in Catherine Lundoff's "Twelfth Night." Rich in sensual detail, the stories in Best Lesbian Romance 2011 celebrate the joy and the passion of lesbian love in all its many wondrous forms.



What could be better than passionate romance and hot sex? Drop in and share your opinions on the books and the stories that struck a nerve, made your heart go pitter-pat or made your erogenous zones tingle! Didn't read the books? That's okay, stop by and find out why you should put these two books on your must-read list!

I haven't read either

But I'm about halfway thru one of the other books we're discussing in a few weeks.

I did not read either of these, but am looking forward to hearing what everyone's thoughts are on both of them.

I just wanted to say I REALLY loved Saskia Walker's story No Risk, No Reward - but only partly because it was a sexy story. It kind of hit home because I lost my virginity in the back on an old Land Rover on the English Moors - so it was, like: "Hey, this happened to me."

It always takes me longer than I wish reading the books I get, I always like to read them like I would for a regular book, a few stories before bedtime, but I should try reading them faster.

Passion had some interesting stories, and it was heartwarming as well, very romantic in general which led to the passion itself. Very sweet and a superb choice for St-Valentine's Day.

Hey Guys, sorry I'm late, fell asleep putting the kids to bed.
I had an alarm rigged and everything but my computer went to sleep and d/c from the internet. It's a good thing I'm so determined to be here, I woke up all freaked out I was missing it.

I'm late, too! Totally lost track of time. You'd think since it's an hour later tonight, I would have been early!

I'll have to add that to my wish list.

I try to sit down and read a whole bunch at one time, but the problem with me is that I have to be in the mood for it. I read a few stories one night, then a big chunk of the book another night, and a few stories since then.

Yay! Do you generally enjoy erotic romance, or was this your first taste of it?

I also had a story that reminded me of me, of the way I think about romance and bitter thoughts about non-existent knights in shining armor, My Dark Knight, and I wish that story had been longer, it almost felt rushed at the end, as if the author realized it would be too long.

There she is! Changing the time always confuses us in one way or another...

I liked that one too. Funny, that one was set in Britain, too - like the story I liked.

Yes, it's the first time I read a collection of stories focussed on romance, and previously, it was usually the hint of romance (that makes you go awww) in the other books that made them more special (remember I read books about bondage, submission and voyeurism, and not that much about pure love romance).
