We are very proud to share the news that Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire edited by Cheyenne Blue has been nominated for a Lammy in the Lesbian Erotica category.
The 27th Annual Lambda Literary Award Finalists were announced yesterday and editor Cheyenne Blue along with the contributing authors are in excellent company.
Here’s a reminder of the blurb for Forbidden Fruit:
She’s off limits but the attraction burns so bright it’s impossible to resist.
This collection of seventeen stories charts the spectrum of unwise lesbian desire, gathering tales of women you should resist—but can’t. In Jean Roberta’s Shelter the bad girl’s back from prison. An upper-class lady seduces her maid in Laila Blake’s poignant story set in Regency England, while a Catholic nun is beguiled by a hooker in Lisabet Sarai’s powerful The First Stone.
These women are cops, slave owners, doctors, Dommes, and horse thieves, and you’ll find them at the pool, being seduced by older women, putting their job on the line for lust, or seducing the salt-and-pepper butch.
With stories from writers at the top of their game, including Sacchi Green, Erzabet Bishop, Beth Wylde, Harper Bliss, and Allison Wonderland, this collection is sure to thrill.
