Summary
"Legends and myths of all cultures tell of those captivating creatures whose allure we are literally powerless to resist. Sirens, demon lovers, femme fatales -- they compel our love, drawing us into realms of forbidden desire and uncontrollable passion. Sometimes these seductions are supernatural, sometimes sexual...and sometimes we are haunted purely by an implacable madness. Obsession: it overwhelms us, takes us to irrational extremes, involves us in dangerous liaisons and fatal attractions. Obsessions consumes, as do these enticing, compulsively unforgetable tales from nineteen masterful storytellers." --p.[4] of cover
