The first Hot & Bothered, a 1998 collection of short short stories on lesbian desire, went through three printings within its first year and appeared on numerous gay/lesbian bestseller lists, rising as high as No. 2 in the Lambda Book Report in 1999. Hot & Bothered 2, the sequel, contains even more sensuous tales of lesbian seduction and fantasy. As in the first volume, there are 69 stories from numerous countries around the world, including the US, Canada, Great Britain, and elsewhere.
