Who better to oversee a dozen surprising tales of seduction than the editor of the sensual classics Slow Hand and Fever? Seduce Me is the result of Michele Slung's asking twelve accomplished erotic storytellers to woo us and tease us, and take us on journeys of delightful enticement-past boundaries and inhibitions and on to places where the senses rule. "Seduction is a state of mind, usually with a population of two," she writes in her preface. "But no matter how familiar its portal might seem, what lies beyond is always uncharted territory." To prove this, Slung has selected stories in which the arts of seduction are practiced on an intriguing array of canvases. In "Rising Son," for example, a luscious Japanese courtesan beds one man while another, to her intense pleasure, secretly spies on them. The handsome hero of "Southern Comfort" is a country boy who happily takes lessons in big-city ways-and much, much more-from an elegant ballerina. "Life Class" introduces us to a celebrated artist and his muse who find themselves magnetized by highly charged but shifting passions. "The Butler Did It" carries us to a holiday on a sultry Caribbean island where a lustful young woman orchestrates an utterly satisfying sexual initiation. Then, in "Let Me Help," conjugal intimacy is both old and thrillingly new again, while the experience of being led down that old garden path has never been as fulfilling as it is in the hot and witty romp "In Her Garden." Of course, these tales comprise just half of the book: there are six more offerings just as tantalizing, just as gratifying. Seduce me. Is it a command or an invitation? Whichever you think the answer is, the stories here will keep you tantalized, tingling, and turned on. And they will remind you, as well, why sex is actually an eleven-letter word-spelled i-m-a-g-i-n-a-t-i-o-n.
