Check Out Urban Review's Five Star Review

Urban Reviews on  FIVE STARS

Can't Help the Way That I Feel is a steamy collection of erotic stories by some known and unknown African American authors. All of the stories in this book are tantalizing, but there are a few that stand out. In Tandem by The Big Bamboo, a woman gets the birthday massage of her life by two sexy masseuses. Bubble Music shows us what happens when a woman creates her own masterpiece at an erotic art party. What Would Quincy Do by Elle features a woman who is urged by her girlfriends to explore her sensual side. The Shadow of the Midnight Train by Cynnamon Foster features a college teacher who wants to share more than poetry with a visiting poet. Party of Four by Black introduces us to two couples who have an explosive reunion. Velvet takes us on a day long rendezvous with A One-Day Lust Affair.

Can't Help the Way That I Feel is an excellent array of erotic stories. Each story is unique and makes you wonder when will these authors come out with a full length novel of their own. From mild to the extremely hot, there is something for everyone in this book. Lori Bryant Woolridge even included some story starters so the readers can use their own imagination to create their own stories. Can't Help the Way That I Feel is the best erotica collection since Erotique Noire: Black Erotica.

In the Flesh Reading at The Happy Ending Lounge


So, three beautiful women walked into the Happy Ending Lounge in New York City and delivered as advertised!  Contributing authors Sasha James (Translation Sensation) and Erika Kendrick (The Accidental Escort) came in turning heads and after their readings, left the audience breathless and wanting more.  So much talent in such beautiful packages!

Sasha and Erika joined me for Virgin Night (who says you can't go back!) at the In The Flesh Reading Series.  We each read from Can't Help The Way That I Feel, and I am not exaggerating when I say that we turned the mother out!  More than a reading, each put on a show, turning their well written words into spoken word performances.  So  much so, we're talking about taking the show on the road. 

Stay tuned!

New Erotic Novel by Cynnamon Foster

New work that you won't want to miss by Cynnamon Foster, author of In the Shadow of the Midnight Train.

Southern Comfort

"Entertaining and erotic, Cynnamon Foster certainly knows how to turn suspense into something hot and spicy!"
- Lori Bryant-Woolridge, editor, Can't Help The Way That I Feel
"Cynnamon Foster's "Southern Comfort" paves the way for Stiletto Press's promise of Steamy, Sexy Stories!"
Desiree Compton is ready to end her sexual drought, and she finds the right candidate in sexy, Sam Comfort, the mysterious guy from the mailroom with the charming southern drawl. Sam seems to be just what she needs to distract herself from memory of her ex. She attracts his attention with a few candles, incense and a lot of help from her best friend Seria, who seems to have all the answers where men are concerned. Seria is a hot tamale who is sexually liberated and free and thinks she has men wrapped around her finger, until she finds herself entangled in a web of espionage, drama and sex that is too hot, even for her, and the keeper of a secret that might just devastate the fragile Desiree and ruin their friendship forever.
