Zane Books Overview

The Sex Chronicles / Shattering the Myth

From a bold and captivating voice comes a collection of stories that probes women’s darkest passions and pushes the boundaries of erotic fiction. Sometimes romantic, sometimes raw, Zane appeals to men and women alike with these tales of intoxicating sensuality. THE Sex CHRONICLES SHATTERING THE MYTH Anyone who thinks that men are by nature more sexual than women or that African American women are especially inhibited hasn’t read Zane. Here, she presents an erotic read in three parts: Wild, Wilder, and Off Da Damn Hook. With a unique ability to tell it like it is and also to tell it like it could be in your wildest dreams Zane crafts stories about everyone from the sensual housewife who wants her husband to experiment more to a secret underground sorority of women that organizes some rather unconventional social events. By turns tender and outrageous, The Sex Chronicles is a pleasure from beginning to end.

Gettin’ Buck Wild

Zane’s erotic writing has captivated a legion of fans. Her previous short story collection, The Sex Chronicles: Shattering the Myth, not only became a bestseller but also delivered fully on its promise exploding the myth that men are more sexual in nature than women, and that African American women are particularly inhibited. Now, this second volume of Sex Chronicles, Gettin’ Buck Wild, is Zane’s hottest collection yet. Smart, witty, and extremely sexy, with all new characters and settings, these stories are tailored to women but perfect for lovers to share.

Scenarios run the gamut from committed, monogamous couples looking to experiment to wild, single sisters who form a very unconventional sorority. You’ll meet a high paid multi tasking career woman who gets her groove back in ‘When Opposites Attract.’ You’ll take a ride with an adventurous couple who try something new in ‘The Subway A Quickie.’ You’ll discover a new way of celebrating Christmas in ‘The Santa Claus.’ Spicing up real life scenarios with over the top sexual fantasy, Zane gives readers the best time they’ve ever had between the pages of a book.

Jonquinette has always been Nervous around men, but on the weekends her alter ego, Jude, goes on intense sexual escapades. When Jonquinette seeks the help of Dr. Marcella Spencer, the psychiatrist Zane originated in her bestselling novel Addicted, Jude’s response is to go on a sexual rampage. In the meantime, Jonquinette becomes interested in her new neighbor, Mason, but Jude has no intention of letting Jonquinette fall in love not when Jude’s having so much fun. Based on a short story of the same title from her bestselling collection The Sex Chronicles, Nervous is classic Zane with an edge. So, relax, sit back. You’re in for a nerve tingling read.

After Mary Ann becomes smitten with Trevor, the campus playboy, Patricia is determined to show Mary Ann how not to be a victim, but rather how to outdo the players and heartbreakers. She indoctrinates Mary Ann into the ranks of the sexiest secret society ever: The Sisters of APF.

Head Bangers

Hope and Faith: two things that everyone needs to survive. But the words take on a different meaning in the form of a set of twins who attend Crockett University in Washington, D.C. As seniors, they are looking forward to a bright future in corporate America. Meanwhile, they have decided to relieve some of the stress involved in getting a higher education by being members of APF. Soror Ride ’em High and Soror Lick ’em Low, originally hail from Atlanta and, like most twins, they share a connection. In fact, their physical bond is so strong, that one can often feel a pounding in her vagi*na while the other is engaged in sexual activity. But everything is not perfect when it comes to being a twin. Sometimes animosity and jealousy can creep in; especially when Hope and Faith find themselves both attracted to the same man on campus. Is blood really thicker than water? Or, in this case, thicker than basic carnal desires? In this long anticipated second volume in the APF series, a follow up to The Sisters of APF: The Indoctrination of Soror Ride Dick, New York Times Bestselling Author Zane, once again proves why she is ‘The Queen of Erotic Fiction.’ Over the years many have tried to emulate her but Zane’s imagination is not to be replicated any time in the near future. The freak nights of APF are some of the most artistic, exhilarating, erotic experiences that have ever graced the pages of a book; evidenced by the thousands of emails Zane has received over the years from women yearning to join the sorority. The sexual revolution continues…
