Suite Encounters features hotel erotica in all its forms, from honeymooners having sex on the beach to loving couples on vacation to coworkers heading downtown for secret quickies, not to mention exhibitionist thrills (and chills) of getting it on in the pool on the roof at The Standard Hotel in front of everyone! The award-winning editor of the Best Sex Writing series, among many others, Rachel Kramer Bussel knows the winning formula of stories of sex in every possible setting -- luxury hotels, seedy motels, spas, SRO's and everything in between.

Praise For Suite Encounters: Hotel Sex Stories

"The hotel room is a fantastic setting around which to assemble a short stories (erotica or otherwise), and Suite Encounters (if you'll forgive my word play here) provides above-and-beyond service." --Glorified Love Letters

"This is a classy dirty book, and it is perfect for anyone who prefers erotica with more than just the basics." --San Francisco Book Review

"Cleis Press is a premier publisher of erotic fiction for an adult readership. One of their latest titles is Suite Encounters: Hotel Sex Stories knowledgeably compiled and deftly edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Comprised of twenty short stories by remarkably gifted writers, the tales recounted within the pages of Suite Encounters touch upon honeymoon suite romances, 'by-the-hour' hotel trysts, clandestine rendezvous, couples revisiting and renewing their past occasions, coworker quickies, and even a mermaid! Perfect 'guilty pleasure' reading, Suite Encounters is certain to be a welcome read by anyone who has every engaged in (or fantasized about) an erotic encounter in a hotel room of their own!" --Midwest Book Review

"Suite Encounters is a fantastic collection, with a range of stories and characters I rarely encounter in an anthology. The theme is tight--hotels, which our editor lovingly discusses in her introduction as a kind of erotic tabula rasa. Taking a narrow theme and collecting authors who can spin that theme into such a wide range of stories is a mark of a great editor, and Rachel Kramer Bussel does just that." --Erotica Revealed
