Cheyenne Blue: Forbidden Fruit — stories of unwise lesbian desire
Thursday, September 11th, 2014

She’s off limits but the attraction burns so bright it’s impossible to resist.

Have you ever wanted someone you know you can’t have? Have you ever yearned—and burned—for them? Have you ever pursued them, even when you know you’re putting everything at risk?

Of course you have.

The women in Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire know what they want, and they’re not afraid to take it. And the stakes are high: career, friendship, marriage, even a life is on the line.

Cheyenne Blue has gathered seventeen stories from some of the best writers of lesbian erotica, as well as some talented newcomers. This anthology explores many reasons why a woman might be off limits. In Beth Wylde’s “Bachelorette Party” a butch turns her best friend into her lover the night before the bestie’s wedding. L.C. Spoering explores the allure of the older woman, and Harper Bliss takes it one step further as that older woman is also her ex-girlfriend’s mother.

Duty versus desire is the theme for stories from Emily L. Byrne, when an off-duty cop realizes where she’s previously seen the woman she’s lusting after, and Axa Lee, whose historical story “The Clinton County Horse Thief Society” plays the theme of duty versus desire for the highest stakes of all.

Allison Wonderland romps in her inimitable way through the tale of a fundamentalist Christian and an atheist, and Lisabet Sarai tells a powerful story of a nun working in a halfway house who is beguiled by a hooker in her care.

With settings ranging from a BDSM club to a sports stadium, and timeframes from regency England to a dystopian future, there is a variety of sizzling stories here to satisfy even the pickiest reader.

Go on, pluck the fruit.

Take a bite.

I dare you.
