Description and Table of Contents

There is a lot to be desired in Bussel's latest addition to the BWE series!

"Anything goes" in this wild and thrilling collection of erotic fiction.

From lesbian vampires to the ghost of Nathaniel Hawthorne, exhibitionism for a daring woman's neighbors and sexy onstage burlesque moves, the women in these stories are hot, horny, and determined to get exactly what they want. Whether they're bedding a longtime partner or hooking up with someone they've just met, they always find a way to get exactly what they want. From outlandish erotic fantasies in public and private to tender intimacies, sexual healing and hotness take many forms in these arousing tales by authors including Sally Bend, Katrina Jackson, T.C. Mill, Garnell Wallace, and more.

Edited by the award-winning Rachel Kramer Bussel, Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 10 serves up twenty-one steamy adult stories that are sure to fan the flames of readers' desires!
