A sex guru in the Nevada desert who may or may not be a vampire, a trio of women friends whose quest to find the "perfect man" has deadly repercussions, an ex-rodeo rider whose woodcarving avocation conceals a gruesome secret--these are some of the characters in erotic horror writer Lucy Taylor's newest collection of short stories. Not for the faint of heart or those who like their fiction lite.
