A new collection of nine sensual, witty and mystical stories, following on from the international success of both QUIVER and TREMBLE, and exploring the universal experiences of obsession, romantic encounters and secret regrets. A movie star longs for anonymity; a Sydney sculptor wonders whether a lover can be summoned by the act of artistic creation; a California call-centre worker seeks an online release in Second Life; a London weatherman inspires both obsessive lust and devastating storms; and an eighteenth-century biographer discovers a magic, erotic ritual which will change his life forever ... In YEARN, the line between reality and imagination is blurred by the power of fantasy and desire.

These stories were of a much higher literary quality that I usually find in erotica anthologies. That alone made it worth reading for me. The fact that the stories were also entertaining was a bonus. Read full review

Yearn is a book filled with erotic short stories that tend to lean toward the literary side. I wasn't enthralled with this book, but it was an adventure! Read full review
