Cover for Divine Desire Divine Desire – Anthology

There’s a reason people often cry, “Oh, God,” in the throes of passion.

God is the only concept big enough to hold all the pleasure they’re feeling; pleasure that is as close to beatific grace as any mortal comes. This collection explores the connection between sex and divinity, the mix of temporal and transcendent passions. These ten stories of erotic encounters with the divine invite the reader to witness mortals who crave an immortal touch, deities whose anger with one another is matched only by their lust for one another, and the fate of those tempted by gods of the grave.

Rise beyond the limits of mere mortality, and partake of Divine Desire.
