Fantasy for Hire: A Fake Relationship Standalone Romance by Erika Wilde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Austin and Teddy are EVERYTHING! Fantasy for Hire gave my heart all that it wanted and some things it didn't ever realize it needed. Wilde has made sexy a staple in all of her books, however it's a rarity that she offers us a glimpse at her sense of humor. Fantasy is littered with moments that will awaken more than your senses. It will tickle your funny bone and melt your heart.

Voices of the Damned
Voices of the Damned - Barbie Wilde

by Barbie Wilde


Voices of the Damned is a collection of short stories by Barbie Wilde that can be graphic, very sexual and sometimes violent in ways that some readers may find disturbing.


The first story, Sister Cilice, is about a woman who was coerced into becoming a nun by parents who repeatedly told her she was sinful. She indulges in self flagellation and is tormented by sexual fantasies about her priest, eventually equating pleasure with pain. She finds an ancient book that guides her to a way to indulge her perverse needs.


The story is dark and disturbing, graphically detailing sado-masochistic acts. The author has invented a new word, scrupulosity, which fits oddly well in context.


The stories that follow have similarly disturbing themes. Zombie gang rape, a creepy kid who can heal or kill with a touch, a soul-sucking succubus, a demon who attacks through sleep paralysis and more. If you have any triggers, there is sure to be at least one of the stories that will confront you with it. There are no holds barred in either horrific torture or graphic sexuality in all its most perverse forms.


The writing itself is good and depicts some of the most disturbing imagery I've ever read far too effectively. Extreme Horror readers will find a real treasure in this one. The book is extremely well presented, with brilliant artwork in full color and a lot of thought put into layout and graphic design.


Though the subject matter may be a little too over the top for my personal taste, I have to appreciate the artistry that has been put into both the visual and verbal presentation of the work. This could well become a collector's item among those who are drawn to the unusual and offbeat in the Horror realm.


It feels weird to give a high star rating to something I actually found difficult to read, but it was only my own squeamishness that caused that difficulty and the quality of the all too effective prose is deserving of the 4.5 stars I've given it.

Hot and Sexy by Erika Wilde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

She's stronger than she looks and so much more fragile than she seems. He's on the hunt for adventure and has no idea what fate has in store. Hot and Sexy is a collision course of contradictions. Wilde pulls at the heart with a captivating tale of temptation. Joelle and Dean are not afraid to be bold, but it's their vulnerabilities that turn out to be the most intriguing. Sexy, sassy and sensitive becomes a five alarm fire.

The Canterville Ghost
The Canterville Ghost - Oscar Wilde,Inga Moore

by Oscar Wilde


This is one of those Classic stories I've meant to read for years and have finally got to it. Oscar Wilde comes from an era when characters were written bigger than life, even when they are dead. Many clichés of ghost story writing, like blood stains that reappear after being cleaned up, are to be found in this one, but the reader should remember that Wilde probably wrote them first! His sometimes humorous take on ghostly activity set the tone for many stories that came after.


My only complaint would be that sometimes the ghost had too much physicality. The antics of the children who chose to torment him instead of fearing him might have had greater limitations if he couldn't slip on floors or have his dignity damaged by projectiles.


Later in the story, humour gives way to a poignant encounter with the little girl in the family who feels sorry for the ghost and his plight. The gamut of emotions that are woven through the tale make me want to read more of Oscar Wilde to discover his full potential as a writer.
