wet and wild — sapphic bloodlust

In Girls Who Bite, Delilah Devlin delivers a sexy collection that readers can sink their teeth into every night. The female vampire is the ultimate bad girl — even the word vampire invokes images of dark, shadowy liaisons, forbidden desires, and sensual bloodlust. Whether depicting a traditional blood-drinker seducing a meal, a psychic vampire stealing the life-force of an unknowing host, or a real-life sanguinarian seeking a partner to share a ritual bloodletting, the stories in Girls Who Bite are a sensual surprise. In Anna Meadows's "La Caída," a Mexican 'salt-eater' saves a fallen angel and redeems her own soul. In Vivi Anna's "Bloody Wicked," a powerful witch casts a spell to ensnare a love slave — with surprising results. Through Angela Caperton's "Pet Door," a shape-shifting vampire meets the dominatrix of her dreams. Bestselling romance writer Delilah Devlin explores the world of wicked women who love blood — and other women.
What Stephanie Thinks: Devlin's compilation of lesbian vampire stories was SO hot! Usually I like m/f erotica, but this book was an exception because of the sultry, sensual stories featured — stories that could only occur with two women.

Stories: I love the paranormal genre, so these vampires were really great. I love how each of the stories are so original. It wasn't a book full of the same stories with just different names and place; each and every one of them were unique, and I found myself absolutely getting attached to them (and the characters). There are also a few erotic themes that come up, such as D/s and roleplaying, so that's a nice touch to make each of the stories even more individual.

Writing quality: Every one of these stories were top-notch in quality. Cleis is a great publisher that excels in typography, so no errors here. Love that about this publisher.

Complaints: Not a one. I loved this book so much. The sex scenes were amazing, the writing blood-chilling, and the characters so real.

Stories I liked: My favorites were 'Bound Love' by Christine d'Abo and 'Al Dente' by Delphine Dryden.
