Erotica for the modern woman: nine tales of the dangerous and divine

From Tobsha Learner, the boundary-pushing erotica author of the international bestseller Quiver, comes TREMBLE: Erotic Tales of the Mystical and Sinister (On-sale September 2013/ ISBN: 9780142180372).

In Learner’s steamy collection, she explores the full spectrum of sexuality peppered with elements of the supernatural. Tremble blurs the line between fantasy and reality, depicting the pleasures of new and rediscovered love, lust, and obsession in a world where passion and magic are interwoven—and where boundaries are pushed beyond expectation.

In a Welsh village, a young woman’s sensuality is awakened by an outrageous inheritance; a drought-stricken Oklahoma town is offered salvation by a travelling rainmaker; a Sydney record producer struggles to satisfy his wife and his mistress—until one of them takes matters into her own hands…

The short stories span the eras, from an eighteenth-century biographer who discovers a magic, erotic ritual to a Sydney record producer struggling to satisfy his wife and mistress. Intelligent and highly imaginative, Learner’s brand of erotica will appeal to both first-time and more seasoned readers of the genre.

An electrifying short story collection for fans of

50 Shades of Grey and Bared to You

“Taking in the panoply of sexual desire, each tale shudders with full-frontal detail in a style that is both lyrical and forensically accurate.” –Vogue

Fifteen years after its original publication, an unforgettable erotica classic re-issue with a sexy new package from the publisher of Anne Rice’s seminal New York Times best-selling Sleeping Beauty Trilogy. In QUIVER: A Book of Erotic Tales (Plume; 4/30/13, $16.00) Tobsha Learner, “the thinking woman’s erotica” writer, explores the pleasures of new and rediscovered love, lust, and obsession in twelve interconnected impossible-to-put-down tales.

In the flashes that blur the line between fantasy and reality, each steamy story in QUIVER captures the spontaneous erotic experiences of a group of middle-class acquaintances—a dentist and his wife; an accountant and a beautician—as they audaciously unleash their deepest desires. Alternating between male and female perspectives, Learner invites readers to enjoy the unique intimacies of the characters’ trysts. And there are no holds barred in these interactions: heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, exhibitionistic, and sadomasochistic relationships are unabashedly on display in this provocative collection. With its blend of escapism and realism, QUIVER will surely appeal to readers who enjoyed their first experience with BDSM with Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as more experienced readers in the genre.
