** Spoiler Alert **
These short stories come with a twist. They’re impregnation erotica (or breeding erotica), and they’re romance, but not as most of us would be likely to think of it…
In “Breeding Her by the Beach”, a story told entirely from the tentacle monster’s point-of-view, it’s the monster who is in love with the female character, a young human woman. The monster definitely has the billionaire thing happening, let me tell you!
In “Sacrificed to the Kraken”, we don’t really get a picture of the monster’s character (as such), though he/it manages to maintain an ever-present sense of power, menace and awe, especially over the heroine’s character. The romance comes from her desire to… how can I put this… to prostrate herself to her god? To fulfill his desires in gratitude for his… hmm… All right, so she doesn’t have a lot of choice, either way. But that can be… empowering, or liberating, in a way. And there’s also the allure of a powerful (and possibly lustful) character.
And lastly, in “Slave to the Tentacle Alien”, we have something completely different. Dominance, submission, and one massive clash of cultures. It’s complicated. Yes, that’s as much as I’m going to say… complicated!
I enjoyed these stories, I was hanging out for a continuation for a short while, and then I reminded myself… ah, impregnation erotica. With a side of romance. It’s about the impregnation!
And on that count, these three short stories certainly deliver!
