The Femme Fatale Bundle - Curated by O'Neil De Noux

The Femme Fatale, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is "An attractive and seductive woman, especially one who will ultimately bring disaster to a man who becomes involved with her." The Urban Dictionary gives this definition, "A woman with both intelligence and sex appeal that uses these skills to manipulate poor helpless men into doing what she wants. May cause death."

A good woman can bring out the best in a man. A bad woman can bring the exact opposite. While femme fatales can bring out both. These wily women use every God-given gift at their disposal, from the carnal to the cerebral, from crass to classy, from cunning to conniving to get their way. They are alluring, sometimes mesmerizing enough to lure their prey into destructive decisions. They are feline-exquisite, soft and beautiful, like the leopard — said to be pound for pound, nature's most efficient killing machine.

These women can suck the life out of good guys, turn winners into chumps and leave pain-in-the-ass innocent bystanders panting in the gutter. When a man loves a woman, all goes by the board.

We humans tend to think of our men as hunters and our women as nest builders, however, we know that's not always the way it goes. Which, in my opinion, makes humans the most interesting creatures on the planet. All right, I admit, my viewpoint is probably slanted, since I'm part of that species.

I am curating a new Femme Fatale bundle for StoryBundle, a terrific collection of ten outstanding novels by some phenomenal writers. As always, at StoryBundle, you name your own price – whatever you feel the books are worth, and a portion of the proceeds goes to charities Mighty Writers and Girls Write Now.

For StoryBundle, you decide what price you want to pay. For $5 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the basic bundle of four books in any ebook format – WORLDWIDE. If you pay $15 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the six bonus books as well.

The Femme Fatale bundle runs for three weeks only. This is a great deal, and a great way to pick up a batch of intriguing books in the long tradition of femme fatale mystery fiction. – O'Neil De Noux
