The first book in Burton's Hidden Grotto series is exquisite and riveting literary erotica. Four eloquent tales, from past and present, intertwine in magical and unexpected ways. The author conjures up authentic visuals of time and place, and her mystical characters come alive on the page. Readers willing to be seduced into a world of dark sensuality and sexual taboos will be spellbound.

Sometimes guests of the Château de la Grotte Cachee get
more than they bargained for. A
tennis star and his fiancee arouse
the passions of a succubus and a dusios in "Twixt Sleep and Wake."
In 1749, in "Lick of the Flame," the castle plays host to the Hellfire Club,
a secret society of debauchers. While they perform a black mass, a djinni
satisfies Lady Somerhurst's hidden desire for discipline.

In 1884, scientist Catharine Wheeler discovers a "Body of Knowledge"
when she loses her way in the caves. And in 52 B.C., "A Demon of Flesh and Stone" helps young lovers who
are forbidden to marry and finds
sanctuary for himself. (Bantam, Feb., 352
