Open Call for Anthology Submissions
Release Date: October 2012
Sinister Seductions is an anthology of paranormal romance stories and poetry edited by Roxanne Rhoads .
This collection will consist of paranormal dark desires and supernaturally seductive tales of all things sinister and scary – think vampires, werewolves, demons, witches, and ghosts.
All romantic heat levels accepted from softly romantic to hot and steamy.
I’m looking for unique takes and edgy twists on popular paranormal characters- give me something new, dark, delicious, and sexy. I’m not looking for the common vampire meets human, bites and has sex with human and falls in love story- give me something I’m not expecting, something new and delightfully dark.

BESTIALITY (SHIFTER OK)
RAPE/RAPE FOR TITILLATION
