eBook Review: Playing with Fire by Kat Black (@katblackauthor)

Sponsored Ad

Playing with FireHaving read Melting Ms Frost, I was eager to dive between the covers of its sequel, Playing with Fire. I really liked the characters, Aidan and Annabel, and wanted to find out where their intriguing story went next. I’m glad to say I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, I found this sequel to be even better than the first book.

Aidan may have melted some of the ice around Annabel Frost’s heart, but he’s still got a long way to go. She struggles with her past, and clings desperately to the things she’s fought so hard for – her career, financial independence – at the detriment of everything else. Aidan’s determined to make her see just what she’s missing out on.

This was another great read. Emotions ran super high; again, the sex was off the charts hot, I loved the settings and other characters brought into the book as a slight change of pace from the first book. There were also some moments which really tugged at my heartstrings, too. Overall, this is a fantastic follow up to the first book. My only complaint is that I wanted more! Highly recommended to erotic romance fans – but you do need to have read Melting Ms Frost, first.

Top 10 Reasons I Love Shifters in Paranormal Romance by Stormie Kent (@StormieKent)

Shifter Magnetism Button 300 x 225

Thanks for having me on the blog today. My name is Stormie Kent, and I have a brand new paranormal romance out titled, Shifter Magnetism. In it, my witch heroine, Leila falls for wolf shifter, Nic Lobo. Today I want to focus on what attracts us to alpha heroes and especially shifter heroes.

In many m/f romance novels, the hero starts out as a complete alpha. He’s slightly self-centered, aggressive, he might be a bit of a jerk, but he is always sexy, and protective. During the novel he changes, still alpha, but softened in some way by the love of and love for the heroine. Readers seem to like this combination of the alpha converted into a potential family guy.

Oh, Those Conflicted Victorians… by Elia Winters (@eliawinters)

NBTM_TourBanner_Combustion

Since I’m on tour with Combustion, which has revisionist-Victorian overtones, I thought I’d take this blog post to talk about the sexually conflicted Victorian period as it really was, not as I reimagined it.

People tend to think of the Victorians as being pretty darn uptight when it comes to sex. And in a way, they’d be right: the same rules and regulations that governed all aspects of Victorian life didn’t exclude sexuality. Men prided themselves on controlling their baser instincts, and women were considered not to have many sexual feelings at all!

At the same time, though, the Victorian era was a time of rampant prostitution. Regulating sexuality didn’t really control it; instead, those regulations pushed sexuality underground. Women’s sexuality was still considered abnormal, however. Any aberrant behavior by a woman was considered a sign of hysteria, pent-up sexual frustration, to be “cured” by a doctor who would bring a woman to orgasm by hand in his office.

Erotica and Fantasy? Makes Perfect Sense to Me by Jane Kindred (@JaneKindred)

Idol of Blood Button 300 x 225

I’ve been writing erotic fiction for years under my real name, Betty Blue, but my first love has always been fantasy. The problem was that my fantasy fiction has always had elements of romance and erotica to it. Traditionally, it’s been hard to find an audience that likes both together—fantasy readers may find erotic scenes, romance, and non-binary genders distracting from the plot, and erotica readers generally aren’t all that turned on by court intrigue and complex world building—but thanks to the popularity of writers like Jacqueline Carey and Storm Constantine, adventurous readers are more common these days.

You can walk into any room of people and find someone with something similar, or the same as you. (Well usually.) A birthday, the same name—sometimes more than one name the same—same parents’ names, education, employment. You name it, these coincidences occur more often than you’d think.

But the chances of it being more than one of those things are a lot lower. You might both be called Rose and were both born on 28th April, but you probably aren’t both named Rose Ellen Grant and work as teachers.

But what if you were?

An Interview with Bethany Michaels (@bmichaelsauthor)

VBT_TourBanner_NashvilleCrazy

How did you start writing erotica?

The common advice to new writers is to write what you like to read. From the first time I “borrowed” one of my mom’s steamy romance novels as a teen, and kept turning back to re-read the “good” bits, I knew I liked my romance hot! When I started writing my first book, it was a given that there would be some super-hot love scenes. I pitched my first novella to a Red Sage editor at a conference and when she eventually bought the book, I knew I had found my voice.

eBook Review: Our Kinky Secret by Melissa Silvey

our-kinky-secretReviewed by Jim Lyon

Our Kinky Secret is a femdom work-in-progress being released in e-booklets of approximately 20 pages each. It has an interesting premise: a domme who has been inactive for six years or so decides to get back in the scene via a kinky online dating service. After screening the responses to her ad in the personals section she focuses on one that seems to match her personal needs. The wannabe submissive she reaches out to turns out to be a famous movie actor whose fame has made it difficult for him to explore his submissive inclinations.

This is an erotic story after all, so things move along quickly and within days D/s liaisons are underway. Overall, the naughtiness they engage in is very erotic and imaginative, but more BDSM-lite than hardcore. It seems that the domme and her “temporary” submissive are headed for a long-term relationship, but since this is a serialized story, as of volume two that development has yet to be revealed.

Thank you for hosting me on your blog, Lucy. It’s an honour to be here, and to introduce Veronica to your readers. My erotic novella is inspired by the life of one of the most sought-after 16th Century Venetian Courtesans. These gifted ladies were trained, usually by their mothers, not just to have sex but also to entertain their patrons by singing, playing music, dancing, and witty conversation. Veronica was a talented seductress and also a published writer and poet. Her forward, feisty personality impressed me when I read her work and it was a joy to bring her to life on the page, helped by my brilliant editor John Hudspith who also worked with me on my time-slip historical romance Lady of Asolo. Veronica had a passionate affair with a fellow-poet; the following extract is taken from the start of their first sexual encounter. I’m now working on Book Two in the series, which will be set in 6th Century Constantinople, and is inspired by a courtesan who set her sights on the most powerful man in the world: the Emperor’s nephew and heir apparent.
