THE KING (The Original Sinners #6) by Tiffany Reisz

Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this potent threesome can raise him to his rightful place as ruler of Manhattan's kink kingdom. Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side—handsomely paid in both bills and blackmail fodder—Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act or chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive apathy—only Søren, the one person he loves without limit or regret.

SOME LIKE IT HOT: Erotica Picks

This month I’m highlighting what I would call “literary” erotica. To some, that may sound like a paradox. However, sometimes the complex story an author wants to tell simply calls for more sex than is typically found in mainstream novels. I think you’ll find that the novels I’m sharing with you this month have more depth that the typical erotic story.

I BELONG TO YOU by Lisa Renee Jones

Master... Being that person, that man, is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need...her.

BEFORE WE FALL by Courtney Cole

One dark moment was all it took to turn twenty-four-year-old Dominic Kinkaide's world black. On the night of his high school graduation, a single incident changed him forever, and he became a hardened man-famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured inside. Now all he cares about is losing himself in the roles that he plays. At twenty-three years old, Jacey Vincent doesn't realize how much her father's indifference has affected her. She is proof that sometimes it isn't one specific moment that wrecks a person, but an absence of moments. She tries to find acceptance in the arms of men to fill the void-a plan that has worked just fine for her, until she meets Dominic.

Club Hopping: Jamie K. Schmidt’s Favorite Clubs

Summer is over and it’s back to the routine of school and autumn days.  I can look back fondly at all the beach parties and cook outs with friends and family.  Thankfully, there will always be night clubs that let us have some rowdy fun indoors once the weather turns chilly.  Here are some of my favorite bars and clubs:
  • The Adventurer’s Club – Downtown Disney, Orlando FL.
  • Unfortunately, this club closed in 2008 and lives on only in my memory.  But I remember with glee sitting on the bar stool that veeeeery slowly lowered and raised and drinking rum punch from a plastic monkey’s head.  Congaloosh! 2.  Minus 5° Ice Bar – Las Vegas, NV The temperature is set at a balmy negative five degrees Fahrenheit.  You have to wear gloves, a fur… Continue

    From Contemporary to Erotic Romance: One Writer’s Journey

    Hi. I’m Carly Phillips and I’m best known for writing small town romance. Hot small town romance with emotional connections between the characters and a connected journey to the hero and heroine’s happily ever after. Now I also write erotic romance.  There. I said it. I’ve been skirting the actual line in interviews and descriptions of my work but with DARE TO SUBMIT, there’s no doubt. I went there. For many people (I think my own mother included), the question is why. Why change things? What people don’t realize is that this was not an overnight change. I started out in publishing in 1999 with Brazen, my first Harlequin Temptation BLAZE, their hottest line. I went on to write a total of 8 Harlequin Blaze books, including a launch for the new longer Blaze line.… Continue

    LONGING (Club Inferno #2) by Jamie K. Schmidt

    The term “erotic romance” perfectly encapsulates what it contains-a blend of compelling story with very sensual, hot sex scenes. As engaging as the story is in LONGING, the second installment in Jamie K. Schmidt’s Club Inferno series, I have to admit that I couldn’t wait to get to the sex scenes, especially when the heroine, Anya Litton, says things like this when talking about her boyfriend, Clint Reyes, a Dom and a stripper: “Let’s see…I could give up amazing sex with a hot Dominant stripper sex god who worships me and wants me in his life for a rich Italian count who dumped me because his mommy told him to. Decisions, decisions. Money doesn’t mean sh*t. I’m staying with Clint.” Anya is an actress and aspiring fashion designer who’s always been attracted to Clint when… Continue

    IGNITED by J. Kenner

    IGNITED is the third book in the Marked Men series, about a three powerful men, known as the Knights, and the women that manage to do what no other could.  This last book focuses on Cole, artist, Dom, and a man who still flirts with the wrong side of the law and his obsession with Kat. I did not read the first two books in the series, but it didn’t matter: The author does a great job of ensuring readers understand the underlying current of want between Cole and Kat. Both have been somewhat obsessed with the other, but reluctant to do anything with their feelings. Kat, because she feared a dynamic shift in their little group; Cole, because he wasn’t sure Kat was accepting of his needs as a Dom. They get over their… Continue

    Why I Write BDSM

    Chances are, if you ever meet me, you’ll find out pretty quickly that I’m an open book. I also don’t hide what I write. Well, unless I’m talking to people I went to seminary with and then—do you blame me? So, pretty much everyone in my life knows that I write BDSM fiction. Yes, my parents and grandmother are aware of it. They just don’t want to talk about it. I often joke and tell people in my day-to-day life they aren’t old enough to read my books yet, which gets a few laughs. Every now and then, someone is curious enough to ask me the real question. Why do you write kink? To be honest, at first I did it just because I was curious. I wanted to know if I could write what… Continue

    GODZILLA—A Surprising Love Story

    When I was a little girl, I watched old-school Godzilla on Ted Turner’s Supersation 17 (or TBS for you real old-timers) in Atlanta, Georgia. I might have just dated myself. Let’s keep that between us, yeah? I remember Godzilla being this big, scary dinosaur/sea/who-knows-what-it-is monster and of course I remember people scattering like ants when he roared. I remember the epic battles with Mothra, Ghidora and King Kong. Death, mass destruction, mayhem—Godzilla was one of the original death-bringers. So when my three teen girls asked me to take them to see the new Godzilla, I was skeptical. I expected more death, mass destruction and mayhem only this time (SPOILER ALERT PEOPLE) Godzilla was a good monster, full of love and caring for the human race—look, I could be stretching that a bit, but bear with me. Bottom line?

    The Ultimate Book Boyfriend

    Those are six of my book boyfriends that I would gladly give up an evening to spend with. It’s a good thing there’s a lot of these guys to go around otherwise I’d probably have to fight a few people off for someone them. And I’d fight dirty too. Hands off the 998th Lord Commander of the Night Watch, yo’. The ultimate book boyfriend has doesn’t have to be the Alpha Male, but the majority of them are. The best book boyfriends, at least for me, also have to have a code and live by it—even when it’s not convenient or easy for them to do so. I like a hero to have a weakness for the heroine, that bumps up against the lines he has drawn for himself. And that weakness, which we all know is really strength, allows him to become more—better.
