Fresh Fiction Review

Girls Who Bite
Delilah Devlin

Reviewed by Vicky Gilpin
Posted November 7, 2011

Romance Erotica Sensual | Romance Paranormal

From even the earliest days of the vampiric genre, women who lust after or love other women saturated the genre. Carmilla and Christabel were some of the first depictions, but GIRLS WHO BITE continues the theme. Some of the works are surprising, with intriguing twists that continue the discussion of vampiric literature. Unfortunately, others are less inventive or interesting, on an erotic or vampiric level. However, short stories, erotic or not, are often subjective, and the perceived gems within the anthology may be quite personal, touching on chords within different readers in different ways. For example, I thought Shayla Kersten's Beloved was rich and excellent while Victoria Oldham's Red Horizons combined humor and sensuality within a unique storyline, but others might find other works in the anthology more riveting.

These are no Twilight tales — the stories in Girls Who Bite are varied, unexpected, and soul-scorching. Best-selling romance writer Delilah Devlin and her contributors investigate vampire myths from around the world, and add fresh girl-on-girl blood to the pantheon of the paranormal.

Take a walk on the wild side with some of the hottest erotic romance authors out there. In "La Caida," a Mexican "salt-eater" saves a fallen angel and redeems her own soul. In "Bloody Wicked," a powerful witch's spell to lure a lover turns her into a vampire's love slave. Through a "Pet Door," a shapeshifting vampire meets the dominatrix of her dreams. South African "Impundulu" sweeps you back to a vampire's primeval beginnings. With a list of contributors that include Adele Dubois, Christine d'Abo, Paisley Smith, Myla Jackson, Shayla Kersten, and Vivi Anna, Devlin delivers a dark and sexy read you can sink your teeth into!

So, sit astride the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, sail with modern-day pirates, watch a meteor fall to earth, and taste the powdery wings of a Monarch butterfly. Not things you'd expect in a vampire tale? Then sip O-positive from a femoral artery while tugging at the silky strands of your lover's hair. Eternally delicious.
