G’Day, and welcome to the launch of Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire.

Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire, edited by Cheyenne Blue, charts the spectrum of unwise lesbian desire, gathering tales of women you should resist—but can’t. In Jean Roberta’s Shelter the bad girl’s back from prison. An upper‐class lady seduces her maid in Laila Blake’s poignant story set in Regency England, while a Catholic nun is beguiled by a hooker in Lisabet Sarai’s powerful The First Stone. These women are cops, slave owners, doctors, Dommes, and horse thieves, and you’ll find them at the pool, being seduced by older women, putting their job on the line for lust, or seducing the salt-and-pepper butch. With stories from writers at the top of their game, including Sacchi Green, Erzabet Bishop, Beth Wylde, Harper Bliss, and Allison Wonderland, this collection is sure to thrill.

“This anthology collects together erotic stories that sample the forbidden. The women in these stories have tough choices to make, for an illicit taste can put something else on the line: a career, a friend, a marriage, even a life. But when boundaries are challenged, when lines are crossed, and the forbidden fruit is plucked from the bough, lust—or love—can come to the fore.” —Cheyenne Blue, from the Introduction
