After fleeing his past, one man finds that the present has its own dangersFor Lance, things always came easily. With looks to die for and a family fortune propping up everything he did, he tended to come out on top, no matter the circumstances.

But it all fell apart when his true desires came out and drove him down a self-destructive path to the small Central American town of Puerto Veragua. Here he takes whatever and whomever he wishes, living a life devoted solely to cheap thrills, pleasure, and desire. However, when Robbie Cosling, a young man with a past of his own, arrives, they create a love that will change both men’s lives forever. The sequel to Perfect Freedom, The Great Urge Downward continues Robbie Cosling’s journey of discovery and love as he learns he must risk it all in order to have a shot at true passion.

    The young couple. The first time. Naughty flirting. The secret, forbidden meeting. The young student and his teacher. The older gentleman and the innocent virgin. You, Me, and a Friend. This is a collection of erotic short stories from Cupido. The collection contains following short stories:t"Do you think Rune wants to? He said ‘Hello gorgeous!’ when he came in. I am sooo hoorny...," she says, only half joking. I let what she says hang in the air while I set to thinking. Her tigerish look is lazily challenging now, her lips swollen and shiny. Her silver crucifix and Sunday school education are well hidden inside the collar of her long-armed, tight-fitting, spangly blouse. Her slender fingers drum impatiently on the table. Rune looks over at me and raises his glass of cognac. I lift mine in reply. He smiles, turning his attention to the person sitting alongside. He can’t have any idea. My wife’s always been uninhibited and fearless but tonight she’s bubbling over with lust, dreams and forbidden fantasies that she cannot - nor wishes to - hold in check." - You, Me and My Friend by Dante
