The story theme of a generously endowed black man servicing a white woman is a major one in the lexicon of erotica. It just won't go away, because, in truth, it is a fantasy that many have and want to read about.
In this three-story anthology, Chris Cross explores this theme in several different dimensions and scenarios. In "Tall, Dark, and . . . ," Atlanta office worker Ellen goes on a Caribbean cruise with her friend, Stephanie, precisely to discover and explore the experience of sex with a dark stranger. She finds not one, but two of them, to experience in what is probably the most-used scenario in this genre. In the more free-wheeling and humorous "Christmas Tree Hunting," a more mature woman, a cougar, goes unabashedly hunting for a particular kind of man to bed herand finds what she's looking for.
The early twentieth-century story scenario, "Dark Storm on the Neuse," a love story between an abused young white wife of a prominent North Carolina businessman and a black servant, explores more romantic interracial sex at a time when such coupling wasn't just looked down at but was a deep risk to take.
