Soulful Sex 2: Erotic Tales of Fantasy and Romance is another collection of short stories by Diana Laurence.

Vernal Night: The Trio – Raisi must select one of three men in accordance with her society’s annual ceremonial to be her mate. During this event three men vie for her attention and when the night is completed, she has the decision to select one.

Raisi has three mates that are assigned to her and she intends to find the perfect choice that will make her happy. There is Arjent, the laid back minstrel that is tall and thin; a girl could easily fall into his steps. Then there is Tibolt; a prosperous merchant who is not only handsome but his grave pretense and athletic frame ignites quite a bit of fantasy flare in her mind. But who could not feel an intense fire stirring for Frayn, an untamed artist who is quite changeable that seizes her interest completely? Now as night draws near and dawn approaches soon, Raisi is left with the task of announcing which competitor has won her heart.

Vernal Night: The Infatuation

Lovely auburn-haired Crissida, with the sweet persona of an angel, must allow her heart to speak as she chooses the right man that will make her completely happy. This sweet story is like a huge bouquet of flowers opening up on a spring morning. Ms. Laurence has outlined an enchanting fresh tale so beautifully that the reader cannot help but be caught in all the emotions. The story is refreshing and colorful as if Ms. Laurence pens her words onto a large canvas for all to see.

In Vernal Night: One Hundred Women – The old cliché goes, ‘we saved the best for last.’ In this tale, Arjent finally has the opportunity to be chosen on Vernal Night. The passionate Arjent is paired with Delinn. When Delinn was twelve up until she was eighteen, she and Arjent had been sweethearts. After turning eighteen she separated from him for six years to go on her first Caravan. Now back together they attempt to rekindle the love they once shared and bring back the flames of fire never to be quenched again.

In this story we see the story of Arjent coming a bit out of his shell. In the other two stories, Arjent was a laid back fellow but with Delinn, he is truly in love. He expresses his love to her in a way that is so hypnotic. The dialogue between these two fascinating characters is unique and the chemistry brilliantly created. Even though they have been separated years and seek to stimulate the love they once held, the magic they share when they are together is undeniably a love to last throughout the ages. Ms. Laurence has painted a love with this story that can compare with no other.

He is a Canadian hockey player that is starting to be noticed by many in his profession and soon to be a star on his own merit. Their seized moment’s together light up with a sensual passion that truly stirs the heart and sets the stage that will alter their lives forever. Seventeen years pass before they see each other again and their first love is tested. Etienne is now a huge star with the NHL but one profound night of passion seems to burn through their soul.

As Commonplace as Rain is a bit of a mystic tale. Novatia is a secluded religious order of all female members. Pasha happens to be a member and her desire it to have a different sort of healing.

Within the realms of her social female society she learns that only a man can cure her ailment and the assistance of a man can be most beneficial to her infirmity. With only one thing left to cure her malady, a noble man is called upon to minister to the ailing Pasha. Not long after Pasha has the pleasure of meeting Tristan, Knight of the Uni Order, she is introduced to the magic of romance that his superior expertise and gentle hand is most eager to gratify. Once her depressing state of mind has been soothed, will she be completely healed or will she insist Tristan stay with her always for a lifetime prescription of passion?

He understands Pasha’s innocence and does not wish to frighten her but rather teach her the soothing sensation and meaning of love. This enchanting tale teaches much desire, and how a soothing calmness of a kind-hearted man can heal another’s troubled soul. Ms. Laurence gradually ignites the fervent passion between the characters with her words of poetry and style of script that speaks almost directly to one’s mind, heart and soul.
