Exclusive Excerpt: BEST WOMEN’S EROTICA: VOLUME 2

Best Women's Erotica edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

We’re so excited to feature another book edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel! Best Women’s Erotica: Volume 2 lives up to exactly what we loved about Volume 1. Strong characters to go with your steamy scenes? We’re 100% on board. Which is why we’ve got a (not so safe for work) sneak peek below:


From “Wordless Surrender” by Janelle Reston

Allie couldn’t abide kneeling. She didn’t need a sub who sat quietly at her feet, hoping to be petted and waiting for her command.

She had a service dog for that.

Moreover, it was burdensome to converse with someone whose mouth was next to her knees. Lip-reading from that position gave her a crick in the neck, and signing at such close proximity made it difficult to look at a person’s face and also see what their hands were doing.

Guest Post: “Writing Above the Covers” by Jenn LeBlanc

The Trouble With Grace Jenn LeBlanc

We’ve all heard the old outside the box analogy. I’m twisting it just a bit—because I can. Publishing in general likes to box everything because that makes it easier for marketing strategies. To put it in the most simple terms, they want to know which shelf to put it on in the bookstore.

I don’t fit very well on the shelf in the bookstore. I tend to write beyond the box, and above the covers. I don’t want to hold my characters back because they need to fit on a specific shelf. Writing character driven stories is my jam, my peanut butter, my sourdough and my candy. In doing so I don’t follow a lot of trope rules. What that means is that I have characters you’re not likely to meet in other stories interacting with some that you probably would.

That’s what I love to do most, and why most of my stories are time travel. Taking a modern day professional Dominatrix and tossing her back into stuffy old Victorian England and then…What happens next? An awful lot, as it happens.

Guest Post: “Taking That Last Step…Into Romance!” by Sheryl Nantus

Strictly Business Sheryl Nantus

We’ve all been there – the friend, the co-worker, the friend of a friend who we like to hang around with maybe a bit more than anyone else. He/she listens to your troubles, your victories, your complaints and not only sympathizes, but uses your shoulder for the same reasons.

And you don’t mind.

Because somewhere, somehow, the relationship between the two of you evolved, mutated into something better.

Something closer.

Something like love.

But what happens when the relationship isn’t the usual? When it’s not the waitress who served you your daily coffee or the piano player in your favorite jazz bar?

Swoon-Worthy Heroes: Sawyer Hayes from Shelly Bell’s BLACK LISTED

The hero I will be introducing you to puts the sex in sexy, that’s for sure. If you haven’t pre-ordered Black Listed, it is the fourth novel in Shelly Bell’s Benediction series. Black Listed by Shelly Bell It is Erotic Romantic Suspense and it is definitely H-A-W-T! And so is our hero, Sawyer Hayes; billionaire, CEO, tech genius, alpha/dominant… drool

Don’t know what Benediction is? Well, it is a BDSM club and all of the books (from the White Collared serials to Black Listed) have several scenes take place in the club and all of the heroes and heroines meet and fall in love because they share a common interest; kink.

Guest Post: “Leading a Double Life” by Cecilia Tan

Taking The Lead Cecilia Tan

Many things can cause a woman to need to lead a double life, I suppose, like being a deep cover agent for the CIA. But more often it’s our sex lives that drive us to hide a crucial part of ourselves from the world. Society judges women by a brutal double standard: we’re expected to be sexy at all times but heaven forbid your co-workers or students or boss finds out that you might like to get freaky in bed.

This is a problem. This is a big problem. Fear of being judged not only pushes women to hide their sexuality, it may prevent them from exploring it in the first place. Put simply: THAT SUCKS. Some women fear being judged so much that they will even hide their romance novels! No one should have to live in fear because of their choices for grown-up consensual pleasure. Why do we call them “guilty pleasures” anyway? There’s no reason to feel guilty whether it’s because you like leather or love stories.

Guest Post: “Timid Dommes and Leading Ladies” by Audra North

Giving It Up Audra North

I have a book out today about a timid domme.

Well, maybe that’s not quite the right description. Beatrice Lawrence, the heroine in Giving It Up, is more like a domme waiting to happen. All the right pieces are there, but someone else needs to come along and inspire her to put them together the way she’s meant to. The problem is, for most of her life, she’s been jammed into ill-fitting expectations of subservience and timidity, and it isn’t until she meets Warren Davis—a SWAT officer desperately in need of a little dominating—that things start clicking into place.

Even when Beatrice steps into the role of domme, though, she never becomes who mainstream media define as a dominatrix. She’s not the amped-up movie version of a whip-wielding sadist. There’s a scene in the rom-com The Holiday where Kate Winslet’s character says, “You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for God’s sake.”

Guest Post: “Four Authors of Erotic SciFi Romance” by Veronica Scott

In the mood to read a book that combines supernova-hot erotic elements with a futuristic plot?

Today I’m highlighting a few authors who deliver just that in their scifi. Between them, these ladies deploy everything, from BDSM and femdom to spanking and menage in their intergalactic adventures. Definitely not for the under 18 crowd!

Under By Treaty Kayla Stonor
Kayla Stonor:  Her Qui Treaty Collection is an autobuy for me. Under By Treaty is the first volume in the series and got me completely hooked on Ms. Stonor and the Qui-human relations. There’s a human alpha hero in the first book, General Jaden, sacrificed by his own people for the greater good, given up as a prisoner as the book opens. A sexy alien shapeshifter who may or may not be trying to save Earth from destruction by her own people is his captor.  Intergalactic politics laced with domination, submission and devotion influence Jaden’s fate among  the aliens. Several major plot twists occur to keep the action moving nicely. The science fiction worldbuilding is well-handled and I definitely bought into the romance that develops between Jaden and the very alien heroine.

Guest Post: Rebecca Grace Allen’s 10 Reasons Why Lawyers Make Great Doms

His Contract Rebecca Grace Allen

In romance, businessmen have a reputation for being some of the yummiest heroes out there. They’re smart, powerful, and look damn good in a suit. Lawyers check all those boxes, and take the smoking-hot-hero level to explosive when you add in their passion for the law. So what makes a lawyer an excellent Dominant? Here’s my top ten reasons why: (For pics-pirational purposes, I’ve added images of Harvey Specter from the TV show Suits.)

1. Lawyers have confidence.

Capable attorneys radiate a sense of command that puts his or her clients at ease. It’s not just from the cut of their clothing or the dollar amounts in their paychecks—a good lawyer must make countless decisions during a trial, decisions where someone’s future hangs in the balance, and he or she must know they have the stuff to win. That kind of self-assurance in a Dom’s hands? *fans self*

Exclusive Excerpt: THE QUEEN by Tiffany Reisz

The Queen Tiffany Reisz

Today The Queen, the final book in the Original Sinners White Years by Tiffany Reisz is out! This is a fantastic series that I enjoy and Tiffany’s writing is fantastic! (If you haven’t read the series, you should start with The Siren, which is book one of the Red Years and on sale for $1.99!) We’ve got an exclusive excerpt for you from The Queen, and hope you enjoy!


Once upon a time, Nora and Søren made a fateful deal—if he gave her everything, she would give him forever. 

The time has finally come to keep their promises. 

Out of money and out of options after her year-long exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, the most feared Dominatrix in the Underground.

While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, her only love and the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice—will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go, or trade in her crown for Søren’s collar?

With a shattering final confession, the last link in the chain is forged in The Original Sinners saga. It’s the closing chapter in a story of salvation, sacrifice and the multitude of scars we collect in the name of ecstasy—and love.


Kingsley caressed her cheek with the back of his fingers.

He narrowed his eyes at her, his expression inscrutable.

“What? What is it?” she asked.
