Legends of Lust: enticing stories + giveaway

Hi, book buddies :-) It's Friyay! :-D I told you that this Friday I would be sharing my opinion of LEGENDS OF LUST, by Autumn Bardot. If you enjoy erotic romance with an abundance of imagination and exotism, do not let this treasure escape you! 

Legends of Lust

Erotic Myths from around the World
Author: Autumn Bardot
Publisher: Cleis Press
Cover Design: Allyson Fields
Genre: Erotica
Release Date: January 8, 2019

Who knew the ancient world could be so downright… arousing?

Like uncovering a sexy diamond in the rough, Legends of Lust, 'Erotic Myths from around the World.' reveals the fiery passions lying dormant behind your favorite mythological stories.  This adults-only, debut collection of the fourteen steamiest erotic short stories by Autumn Bardot is an explosion of sexy, nasty, and romantic retellings that will take your love of myths to a whole new level.

Odysseus, a mere man, becomes a god-like master of the tease in the eyes of the sex-starved and eternally lustful goddess, Calypso. The tale of Amazonian queen, Hippolyta, and Theseus gives “love-at-first-sight” a whole new meaning that will enthrall your senses. The encounter between Vishvamitra and Menaka takes them to explosive new levels of bodily nirvana.  And Gilgamesh, the mighty god-king, sends temple prostitute Shamhat to tame a wild man, but instead he teaches her something about man’s most primal instincts… and is not left wanting.

Run wild in your personal Elysian Fields of pleasure with this spicy, irreverent peek into the sensual world of our most beloved gods, heroes, fairies, and shape shifters from every corner of the earth. 


I always found mythology a source of endless imagination and provocation. This collection of short stories takes some characters from these ancient myths and breathes life into their lustful memories. Not only do these characters reflect their status in past times and places, but the elegant language portrays the customs, objects and clothes necessary to picture them as both human beings and larger-than-life-people.

The stories are short enough to delight the imagination for a little while without constricting our busy schedule. There are plenty to choose from. Odysseus sets his cunning and dominance free on his beautiful captor and gets his freedom in pleasurable ways too. A conquest of lust and love between a hero and a warrior Amazon queen. An Indian sage who finds Nirvana  in the arms of a divine nymph. 

This treasure trove of 14 retellings of myths morphs into sensual tapestries of passion, exotic cultures and otherworldly creatures. I enjoyed all of them because each story is beautifully composed, the characters are artfully drawn and every couple retains their uniqueness and sensual spark. Often in these tales powerful women succumb in fortunate ways to the enthralling masculinity of their lovers. They also celebrate female empowerment like in The Kingdom of Women.

The Queen of Winter's story is particularly delightful and humorous with an old woman's wisdom. The ballad of Tamlin is also quite fun. I found one of the stories to be bold and clever when it revived the famous meeting of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon. One of my favourite is the Armenian folktale which reminds me of a fairytale touched by mischief. Really surprising.

This bundle wraps up with a tale of exotic and wild sensuality which is the perfect brooch for a chain of bright imaginings. I enjoyed myself very much ;-)
