"Rachel Kramer Bussel ... returns with a collection of dark delights for those of us who take a walk on the wild side and those who want to venture there. ... The stories presented here are easily adapted to real life scenarios, so don't just think of it as a collection of well written erotica by some of the best writers of the genre; instead, think of it as an instruction manual--Intro to Bondage... Each story is carefully crafted to yank on our lusts (no pun intended--or perhaps it is) and I can imagine Bussel having a hard time selecting which to use. Collected here, however, are the best bondage erotica that the year has to offer." --A Book Hunter's Journal
