Bound for Trouble is the tenth bondage-themed anthology for Alison Tyler, a veteran at collecting the very best BDSM stories for her readers' pain-tinged pleasure. Bondage sends shivers (the really good kind) down spines. With Bound for Trouble, Tyler uncovered new jewels, glimmering examples of the ultimate in erotic writing. Every writer in this book focuses on a different facet of the bondage theme. Some characters use tools, some words, one uses paper chains. There are male subs, femme doms, and more. But what these stories have in common is addiction. And fascination. And obsession. Plain and simple, bound for trouble.

Praise For Bound for Trouble: BDSM Erotica For Women

"Tyler's 10th bondage-themed erotic anthology showcases a wide variety of kinky play." --Publishers Weekly

"Featuring delicious prose and tantalizing situations, these authors get right to the heart of BDSM and lay it bare. From breathlessness to vivid images of Mars to the pleasure found in a soft length of rope, each story in Bound for Trouble is intense, fully present, and ripe with anticipation. It will make you sigh, grit your teeth at a well-delivered line (or lick), and leave you wanting more." -Portland Book Review

"Tyler's next (superb) hot collection."--Violet Blue
