The Flight of the Black Swan: A Bawdy Novella by by Jean Roberta
Imagine an upper class English girl kidnapped by pirates when she was eleven, and eventually returned to her family. If this sounds familiar, you've probably either read the classic book A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes, or seen the movie. Whatever you may imagine, Jean Roberta has taken the grown-up Emily far beyond your -- or the younger Emily's -- wildest speculations.
This is, indeed, a ''Bawdy Novella,'' but there is more to it than that. Emily is a smart, spirited heroine, adventurous enough to see the bright side of the unspoken (and unfounded) assumption that she must be ''damaged goods.'' When her romantic affair at a girls' school is abruptly ended because of her lover's cowardice, Emily tosses off the constraints of 19th century English society and returns to the sea on a more-or-less pirate ship, the Black Swan, manned by gay fugitives from the British Navy.
The Killer Wore Leather: An S/M Mystery by Laura Antoniou
Mr. Global Leather has been murdered!
In the Grand Sterling Hotel of Midtown Manhattan, home of the huge annual leather/BDSM/fetish ball and contest, Mr. & Ms. Global Leather, last year's male winner lies dead on the floor of his suite, wearing only very frilly, bright yellow panties. Cormac "Mack" Steel made a lot of enemies in his year wearing the studded leather sash, not the least being his co-winner Mistress Ravenfyre. But she is not alone – there are over three thousand attendees at this year's fetish-festooned event from all over the world, some of whom might have had some very personal issues with the corpse.
The Killer Wore Leather is a deliciously tongue-in-cheek murder mystery set at a leather convention, allowing readers into this private world of personalities and peccadiloes. The kinkiest game of clue ever with a sex toy as the murder weapon and every leather man and woman lacks an alibi. Cleverly crafted and highly humorous, Antoniou is at her wicked best in this pageturning fetish fest.
Nasty Business by Lisabet Sarai
Ruby Maxwell Chen, lovely and ruthless CEO of a huge British business empire, is used to getting her way. When she encounters the strangely charismatic American entrepreneur Rick Martell, though, she wonders if she hasn't finally met her match.
Take It Off! The Naked Truth About Male Strippers By Justin Whitfield & Taylor Cole
Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes in a male strip club? Are those guys gay? How do they stay so ripped? Do they stuff their trunks? How did they get into such a business? How much money do they make? Do they have wild sex every night?
This book takes you backstage and into the lives of two successful male strippers over a span of twenty years in the business. From their rookie days to their wild sexcapades and practical jokes, Take It Off! is a laugh-filled, action-packed joyride.
Justin Whitfield and Taylor Cole are the stage names of male exotic dancers who have performed for women in Europe, the Caribbean, South America and Canada, as well as at various casinos, on cruise ships and in hundreds of clubs across the United States. Both have been featured on television and radio, as well as in newspapers, calendars, and magazines. Both are also official Ellora’s Caveman cover models and appear on our erotic romance covers and at our conventions and tradeshows.
"Wow! Just wow! This, open-the-door-and-have-a-look-behind-the-stage, book is an almost brutal look at a world that, frankly I have never thought deeply about. I love the honesty and the humour. . . . Although this is non-fiction, if you enjoy erotic romance, you will find this is still a hot read." —Nancy, Goodreads
Stepsisters by Rupert James
Hell hath no fury like a stepsister scorned . . . Elizabeth Miller has brains, a trust fund and an unreliable fiancé. Rachel Hope is a young aspiring actress: beautiful, talented, seemingly sweet. Under normal circumstances they would never have met, but their parents' marriage makes them reluctant siblings.
The girls are about to discover they have another thing in common — they share the same taste in men . . . After a devastating betrayal rips their new family apart, the two women are no longer sisters, no longer even speaking. Now Rachel is on the verge of the fame she's always craved. Elizabeth has become a gossip columnist, one who knows far too many secrets about Rachel's past. And she's hell-bent on getting her revenge.
"Glitzy, bitchy, and raunchy, this gripping novel is just fabulous." —Closer
The Angel (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz
Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.
Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.
But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.
Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard
From national bestselling author Sylvain Reynard comes the haunting, unforgettable tale of one man’s salvation and one woman’s sensual awakening . . .
Amorous Woman by Donna George Storey
Amorous Woman is the story of an American woman’s love affair with Japan and her intimate relationships with the many men and women she meets along the way. In this modern reimagining of Ihara Saikaku’s bawdy 17th-century novel of the pleasure quarters, The Life of an Amorous Woman, Donna George Storey offers a graphic, erotic tale that challenges everything we think we know about Japan.
We first meet the perceptive, wise-cracking Lydia after she has returned from Japan. While there she explored love and sex in her roles as English teacher, wife, bar hostess, and the mistress of a wealthy man. Now wiser, changed by the experience and shaken by her passion into a new maturity and understanding of herself as a woman, she commits herself to a new celibacy. But when she meets a pair of attractive American students at a workshop and begins to answer their questions about Japan, she finds herself recounting her exploits. This is where we meet her, spinning out her tale, the contemporary Amorous Woman detailing every moment of ecstasy and adventure and becoming less and less resolute that she can ever truly give up love.
Described by critics as “rich with sensual detail, humor, and emotional complexity,” “hard to put down,” and “literary erotica at its best,” the novel received rave reviews when it was first published in 2007. Now available again as a digital-only publication, Amorous Woman will change your image of Japan—and erotica—forever.
Gabriel's Rapture by Sylvain Reynard
National bestselling author Sylvain Reynard continues the story of Gabriel and Julia, two lovers bound together by their darkest desires.
But those very desires may destroy them . . .
The Siren (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz
Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.
Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.
Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?
Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.
Sleeping Beauty Novels by A. N. Roquelaure (aka Anne Rice)
The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, erotic BDSM novels set in a medieval fantasy world, was written by Anne Rice under the pseudonym of A. N. Roquelaure. The trilogy comprises The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty's Punishment and Beauty's Release, first published individually in 1983, 1984 and 1985.
"The trilogy was written in the 1980s when many feminists denounced pornography as violation of women's rights, but Rice firmly believed that women should have the freedom to read and write whatever they pleased, and considered the trilogy her political statement." Wikipedia has an an interesting discourse on the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy.
The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty: In the traditional folk tale "Sleeping Beauty," the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire.
Beauty's Punishment: This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, the first of Anne Rice's elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away from the Satyricon-like world of the castle. Once again Rice's fabulous tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart.
Beauty's Release: In the final volume of Anne Rice's deliciously tantalizing erotic trilogy, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of the harem. In Beauty's Release, Anne Rice makes the forbidden side of passion a doorway into the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart.
Hostile Takeover by Joey W. Hill
Ben is the last unattached member of the five-man executive team of K&A Associates. The other four, all Masters, have found the submissives of their dreams. That’s fine. The sharp-edged lawyer knows he’s the most hardcore of them all, with extreme tastes as a Master he satisfies physically through experienced club submissives. He doesn’t really need anything more.
Marcie has loved Ben since she was sixteen. He’s never behaved as anything more than a protective big brother, a family friend. But now she’s twenty-three and starting her career as a corporate investigator. She may be a blood-and-bone-deep submissive, but she won’t hesitate to use her aggressive talents to prove she’s meant to be his. With a Master as tough as Ben, she’ll have to take whatever measures are needed—even if her deepest desire isn’t a hostile takeover of his heart, but an unconditional surrender to it.
Reader Advisory: Marcie’s sexual journey contains a group scene of female/female sexual exploration. The Masters also share her in a brief group scene. Both these beautifully erotic moments are essential to deepening Marcie’s bond with Ben.
Fifty Shades of Gray Trilogy by E L James
Now available as a three-volume paperback boxed set, E L James’s New York Times #1 bestselling trilogy has been hailed by Entertainment Weekly as being “in a class by itself.” Beginning with the GoodReads Choice Award Romance Finalist Fifty Shades of Grey, the Fifty Shades Trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
This boxed set includes the following novels:
Pride And Prejudice: Hidden Lusts by Mitzi Szereto
Review by Ashley Lister: It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen remains one of the most resilient of classical authors. If anything Austen defies Mark Twain’s tenet that a classic is something everyone wants to have read but no one wants to read. People still want to read Austen, despite her being burdened with the label ‘classic.’ Her writing style remains accessible. Her stories are populated by credible characters and she delivers narratives with a rewarding and satisfying sense of wit.
And so it’s understandable that contemporary authors would pay homage to Austen.
This is not the first title to revisit Austen’s work. Pride and Prejudice has proved a rich source of inspiration for such diverse titles as Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’ Diary and Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. However, Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is certainly one of the most stylishly exciting and arousing appropriations of Jane Austen. And that’s a truth that every lucky reader will universally acknowledge.
Ruby's Rules by Lisabet Sarai
Ruby Maxwell Chen, the beautiful and ruthless CEO of a huge British business empire, is used to getting her way. When she encounters American entrepreneur Rick Martell, though, she wonders if she hasn't finally met her match.
"Every sex scene makes sense, and every entanglement thickens the plot until it all gets resolved through a game of strategy, a kind of Asian equivalent of chess. ... Not a word is wasted in this novel, and even the scenes which involve the consensual infliction of pain have a certain elegance that seems consistent with limousines, exclusive clubs and gourmet dining. Once you start reading, you won't want to stop until you reach the end." —Jean Roberta, Eternal Press Blog
Borgia: Flames from Hell by Jodorowsky & Manara
Famous for giving us some of Rome's most distinguished dignitaries in the 16th century, but also for their Machiavellian cunning and their skills with poisons, the Borgias are a symbol of Renaissance decadence.
In the final installment of the epic trilogy, Rome is no longer a holy city. Law and order have fallen sway to godless chaos and the Borgia Mafia, history's first godfathers, rule the day. Pope Alexander VI satiates his cravings for bloodshed and sex with masked orgies and the absolute power of the corrupt church. Jodorowsky (Metabarons and The Incal), and the talented creator of sensual and erotic comics, Manara (Click, Butterscotch), team up for this intense graphic novel.
The Lord Of Misrule by Kannan Feng
Review by Lisabet Sarai: Verity Fen is a handsome, wealthy, brilliant Prince of the House of Fen. At twenty four years old, he is an accomplished mage, the most promising scholar of aetheric arts at the ancient university of Atia Selene. He is also stubborn, conceited, careless and occasionally cruel. THE LORD OF MISRULE tells the tale of his unlikely relationship with his designated assistant Iskander - a relationship that upends the certainties in Verity's world, as his servant becomes his master and his master, his beloved.
Raw Silk by Lisabet Sarai
When software engineer Kate O'Neill leaves her lover David to take a job in Thailand, she becomes sexually involved with two very different men: a handsome, debauched member of the Thai aristocracy, and the dominant and charismatic proprietor of a sex bar.
Each touches her in a different way; each teaches her different things about her body and her heart. Then David comes to Bangkok, and Kate realises that, finally, she must choose one of the three men who all desire her.
"Raw Silk goes beyond sizzle and straight to pure combustible. The sexual escapades of Kate and her three lovers are not for the faint of heart ...Lisabet Sarai has a flair for sexy, sensuous romance with an edgy feel." Dawnie, FallenAngelReviews.com.
Incognito by Lisabet Sarai
Betrayed and abandoned by her first lover, shy and studious Miranda Cahill freezes in response to any sexual attention from someone she knows and likes.
"Incognito is truly a buffet of pleasures, with something for everyone. There's the enjoyment of piecing together the mirroring, multi-layered narratives. Historical and literary echoes provide extra spice for the careful reader - in particular Shakespeare fans might enjoy the parallels to Miranda in The Tempest - all sweetened with abundant humor and clever feminist twists. Always you'll find masterful prose in sizzling erotic scenes that offer flavors to please any palate. And last but not least, the novel will change your view of the world in surprising ways." Donna George Story, Erotica Readers and Writers Association
