Something about traveling can bring your blood to the boil: Is it the exotic locales? The chance encounters with attractive strangers? The break from the routine? These nine sizzling tales of love and lust on the move capture a few of these scenarios: A single woman, wandering the dusty corridors of an old bookstore, runs across a book of erotic woodcuts... and a man with like interests. A slide presentation at an Alaska hotel has some of the guests squirming. A long train ride offers a young woman a chance to examine how she truly feels about her body ... with two other passengers. Two lovers on a business trip to Japan confront their problems and their passions in a steamy outdoor bath. A man on a layover makes excellent use of his downtime. Told from both male and female points of view, Sharazade's inventive stories of goings and ... well, you know ... will have you at the edge of your window seat, spinning your own fantasies about the unexplored potential of planes, trains, and hotels.

About the Author:

Sharazade is a professional educator and writer with more than 20 books published under another name. She divides her time between Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the U.S. She enjoys stories that are realistic enough that they might have happened and fanciful enough that they might not have. She values communication, adventure, exploration, passion, and love.

Review:

"Transported: Erotic Tales is a lusty book full of sultry encounters.... Sharazade gives her readers nine hot stories that are so well written that you almost forget that it is erotica .... these stories aren't about doing the deed and getting it done. They are all about seduction, the build-up, the sensual ride and then the mind blowing release. They will get your heart racing, and your body tingling. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride."

--Clea R. Gellar, Bookwenches.com

"I usually prefer a lot more romance in my books, but Sharazade is such an excellent writer that I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It's hard to pick my favorite, but the 'menage' would probably be it. I enjoyed watching the woman learn to love her body exactly the way it is. Our flaws just make us real. I also enjoyed learning a bit about the world without feeling like I was getting a history lesson. I will never travel again without thoughts of these stories flitting through my mind."

--Kris, BittenbyParanormalRomance.com

5 out of 5: "This book is full of the wonderful world of seduction. Erotica takes on many forms, but with Transported, it isn't all about the sex. There's a delicious feel to every tale that woos the reader, cajoling them into the web of the story until you're stuck like a fly in the centre, just waiting for the spider (main event) to appear. I loved that waiting, that sexual tension build-up that has you squirming in your seat and your cheeks heating."

This is a collection of nine short stories linked by the theme of travelling. All are told in the first person, mostly though not invariably with a female narrator. While each of the stories involves sex, all of them build to it, with tensions between the characters and implicit in the situation, before the act takes place. You get the slow burn before the sudden flash.

I liked the characters. They re well drawn, believable, complex, with everyday concerns in their heads and flawed bodies that sometimes make them a little self-conscious I don t know about you, but that makes them just like me.

In Schiphol , we see a couple s paths cross at an international airport and in the travellers hotel there. Flaws deals with events on a train journey, alternating between interior monologue and narrative in a way that draws out the tensions nicely. After Dinner Show offers useful advice for gentlemen: when attending a conference, take more than one necktie. They have multiple uses.

"Shore Leave" deals with an encounter on a beach. Sales Pitch is about a worker in an airport shop, and nicely illustrates why it s a good idea always to keep a couple of spare batteries in your pocket if you work in such a place. 'Just Browsing' was a finalist in the 2009 BetterSex.com erotic fiction contest, and describes the pleasures of finding a late-night bookshop in a strange town.

'In Flight' is about how to stop feeling tense while flying. 'Onsen' takes place in Japan. This is the country where the complexity of social encounters is often not wholly recognized by Westerners, and strange, mixed emotions may surface among Westerners working there. Lastly, in 'Layover,' the narrator isn't travelling, but meeting someone who is. She s spent a lot of time in and around the local airport, and has an eye for every nook and cranny where sex might be possible.

A couple of preoccupations run through the stories. Several of them contain BDSM that would be considered mild by the standards of many readers but are narrated in ways that make the scenes immediate, vivid and likely to stay in your imagination for a while. And a lot of the sex is in semi-public places, with some risk of discovery.

The stories average a shade under 4,000 words apiece - short enough to be a quick read, long enough to be savoured, depending on your mood. There are plenty of points at which dialogue or descriptions include throwaway comments that might, in themselves, spin off in a reader s mind into some whole other fantasy - and that's neat because you can enjoy your own fantasy and then come back to finish off the story.

It s a nicely put together collection, well written, where the enjoyment comes from the care and thought that s been put into the way situations build, as well as in the sex scenes themselves. An excellent read for a long winter s night. Or, of course, while on a journey! --Fulani, fulanismut.blogspot.com
