Detectives see things other people don’t, which makes them a natural fit for the world of the supernatural… and also quite sexy, as the five authors in this volume ably demonstrate. Like a Mystery Uncovered features a variety of investigators (from PIs to FBI agents; male, female, and otherwise) finding time for erotic encounters with clients, suspects, and the occasional succubus as they delve into paranormal-tinged mysteries.

Aurelia T. Evans’s “Jaded” features a determined FBI agent pursuing a shapeshifting conwoman—although her interest may not be purely professional. Jonathan Hepburn’s “The Case of the Kissing Men” and Shawn Erin’s “EROS and the Murdering Succubus” are two very different takes on the traditional premise of the PI being hired to spy on an errant spouse. “The Strange Case of Rebecca Rice” by Michael M. Jones sees a ghost teaming up with (and falling for) the detective who’s looking for her killer, while “Curse Marks” by Neil James Hudson features an investigator with the ability to read the minds of her sex partners dealing with a client who wants her to prove his guilt in a murder case. These delicious blends of mystery, fantasy, and sex should have something for detective fans (and erotica fans!) of all kinds.

He calls himself the Prince. He is humanoid but not human–fascinating, sensual, at the cusp of maturity, and accustomed to getting what he wants. And Lydia has awoken in his world to find that she has been given to him–as a pet, a plaything, and, if he so desires, a lover.

As Lydia comes to realize that the Prince is as much a prisoner to his culture’s ways as she is, her resentment slowly unfurls into pity, understanding, curiosity, and a deep, unpredictable, consuming lust. She wants him too, on her own terms. But in a world fraught with hidden dangers, her terms are not open for discussion, not when their thirst for one another could doom them both. In a court where monarchs are obeyed and sexual hierarchies are strict, one wrong move could end the Prince for ever… and what would happen to Lydia then?

About the author: Peggy Barnett is the erotica pseudonym of a Toronto SF/F author. She rather enjoys the chance to wander off leash and be naughty, and hopes to add more titles to her growing shelf of erotica one day. Follow Peggy: http://peggybarnett.tumblr.com
