    From Publishers Weekly
    This all-original anthology of 23 rather explicit erotic tales, the third in the series (after 2002's Flesh and Blood: Dark Desires), is designed, its editors say, "to shock, titillate, and thrill," but meets those goals only occasionally. With a lineup anchored by such veterans as Loren Estleman and John Lutz, readers are guaranteed some entertaining stories. Dick Lochte's leadoff tale, "Low Tide," is a solid hit about a bank robbery with some unusual aftereffects. A number of couples are represented, either writing as a team or with separate contributions. Barbara Collins has a sly story about life, death and sex in an assisted-living home ("Dalliance at Sunnydale"), while husband Max partners with Matthew V. Clemens for a sexy spoof of a retired James Bond-type agent ("Lie Beside Me"). Michael Collins (aka Dennis Lynds) teams with wife Gayle Lynds for a spy vs. spy story, in which sex seems to be the weapon of choice ("A Delicate Mission"). And Annette and Martin Meyers, who sometimes write together as Maan Meyers, get together for a tale of New York's bad old days of Polly Adler, Legs Diamond and Jimmy Walker ("The Daffodil"). Deborah Morgan's exceptional "The Windsor Ballet" features a bride-to-be who gets much more than she bargained for after visiting a male strip joint with her co-workers, while Lutz's "Nighthawks," about a deadly misunderstanding, concludes the book on a strong note.

    Seventeen Stories of Sex and Violence, August 21, 2003 Reviewer: FictionAddiction.NET from Los Angeles, CA A 300-pound sex goddess tricks her lover into committing murder for her. A porn king longs to make a respectable movie, but things go horribly wrong. An elderly man finds the best lover he ever had, but she exacts a terrible price. All of the stories in Flesh and Blood involve people who are truly guilty as sin. The most shocking story involves a serial murderer who favors a particular part of the body when he shoots his victims. None of the stories in this collection hesitate to take a careful look at the dark side of human nature. Whether describing a woman hiding under a bed while her lover seduces another woman or a couple who have become bored with their regular life and want to seek out more daring sexual adventures, the authors do not flinch from describing human nature at its most graphic. Many of the best stories are set in the past, during that period of the 1940s when "noire" ruled and, in fact, the editors of this collection say they were influenced by James Cain and Raymond Chandler. The editors explain that they set out to "shock, titillate and thrill." If you have romantic ideas about love, this is not the book for you. The characters in this book say "I love you," right before they plunge in the knife or pull on the trigger. Some of the stories are shocking and some are scary, but all of the seventeen stories in this collection are very well-written.
