MEDIA REVIEWS
A veritable Milk Tray of titillating tales, which quickly kicks off with stories of bedhopping, longing, affairs, orgies, smut and filth... no one can criticise this collection for a narrow range of desire' * The Times *
A hefty great volume... Frostrup has brought a fresh eye to amorous fiction... A quick perusal of Desire's contents reveals an admirably broad range of sexual expression' * Daily Telegraph *
'Frostrup has always managed to combine cleverness with sexiness' * Tatler *
'The perfect bedside companion' * Best Magazine *
'To inspire new erotic writers, Frostrup has edited Desire: 100 of Literature's Sexiest Stories, pulling together some of the raciest lines in history' * Sun *
The stories are well chosen from a variety of sources, not just from the romantic genre but literary and historical fiction as well... A really enjoyable collection' * Nudge Book *
'[This will be] eagerly welcomed by bookworms who like their reading material to venture between the sheets. Forget EL James, though: these saucy stories are generally well written' * Metro *
