REVIEWS
'The perfect bedside companion'
Best Magazine
'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
'To inspire new erotic writers, Frostrup has edited Desire: 100 of Literature's Sexiest Stories, pulling together some of the raciest lines in history'
The Sun
'The perfect fit for Frostrup who has always managed to combine cleverness with sexiness'
Tatler
'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
'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'
