Art of Modern Love(2011)
A collection of stories by Ashlyn Chase, Catherine Chernow, Dalton Diaz, Kate Poole and Amber Skyze
Strokes by Ashlyn Chase & Dalton Diaz Book reviewer Darcy Dennison wants to wring her neighbor's neck. That's a crying shame considering how gorgeous the artist is, but she needs peace and quiet to get her work done. Models throwing fits in his apartment don't help. On a temporary work visa, Paolo Santori has little time to paint his nudes before returning to Italy to marry a woman he doesn't love. Then Darcy bursts into his life. The solution to her noise complaints is simple - she'll model his favorite subject while she works. Making her glisten thrills them both, but falling in love could mean losing everything he's ever known. Exhibition by Kate Poole She can't even look at a picture of Michelangelo's David without wishing he would come alive and make love to her. So while her husband goes off to his boring conference, she goes to the erotic art exhibit at the gallery... and lets her imagination run wild. A nude thinks of her lover and masturbates with his image in her mind. A lady on a swing tempts a young swain as her skirt flies up. A god ravishes his virgin sacrifice. And a new concubine must think of a unique way to please her master. When she meets her husband at the end of the day, he reaps the rewards of her vivid fancies... and enjoys what she bought in the gift shop. Dante's Desire by Amber Skyze Masturbating can be so much fun - especially when you have a one-man audience. Addison loves sex. More importantly, she loves her body and isn't afraid to make it sing. Add a little voyeurism and it's totally erotic. Dante's muse has stalled - until his sexy neighbor starts seducing him. Through her bedroom window, he watches as her hands caress her tantalizing skin. It's like something out of a strip club, with his very own personal view. Thanks to this beauty, he's drawing like wildfire. To thank Addison, Dante sends her an invitation for a single night together. That night may encourages them to draw a new future... together. White-Hot and Hard by Catherine Chernow Sensual. Seductive. Sculptures so erotic they become a white-hot feast for the eyes. That's what New York art promoter Sloan Benton sees the day she discovers the talent of sculptor Dallen O'Neal. Dallen's outrageous style gives Sloan a burning desire to learn more about him and the secret medium he's using. He's the sexiest, hottest, most dominant man she's ever met and the best new talent in town, but she realizes too late that he's also a painful, forgotten memory from her past. Dallen O'Neal wants revenge. Sloan Benton crushed his artistic spirit. He couldn't sculpt anything for years after her cruelty, but his desire for her never waned. When she accepts the invitation to view his work, then his challenge to strip naked for art's sake, he discovers Sloan's submissive side. They share wild sex and explore Sloan's penchant for spankings. Sloan captures his heart, but he thrusts her aside, intent on vengeance. Jealousy, sex, submission and a hint of exhibitionism mingle together, making Dallen's need for Sloan... White-hot and hard.
