Love can be surprising. Love can be heartbreaking. Love can be an art. But love is the singular emotion that all humans rely on most . . . and crave endlessly, no matter what the cost. United by this theme of love, the nine titles in the Penguin Great Loves collection include tales of blissful and all- encompassing, doomed and tragic, erotic and absurd, seductive and adulterous, innocent and murderous love.

All books in this series: Cures for Love Doomed Love The Eaten Heart First Love Forbidden Fruit The Kreutzer Sonata A Mere Interlude Of Mistresses, Tigresses and Other Conquests The Seducer's Diary
