In Devil Be Mine, Lucifer’s soul whore, Delilah, is tempted by her favorite submissive, Micah, an angel as pure as she is naughty.

In Fire and Ice, heaven’s black sheep, Qenna, meets her match in Pyro, chaos incarnate and devilish charm in a designer suit.

In Raven, a reaper forces the Guardian, Mara, to accept what’s in her heart or say goodbye to her Raven forever.

In Hunting Pleasure, Lucifer’s Lieutenant, Selene, indulges in heaven’s highest ranking sentinels, Michael and Arael, who turn the hunter into the hunted.

And finally, in No Mercy, God’s right hand, Gabriella, must convince Lucifer to abolish the law standing between her brethren and their lovers. To right a wrong she played a part in, Gabriella agrees to a private meeting with the object of her darkest fantasies—the devil himself.

What was your favorite erotic book of 2012? #erotica

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a good one.  Wow.  2013 already.  I drank some wine, had a few laughs, played some cards. Only a few days into January, and I’m already thinking about what books to move from my TBR pile onto my Kindle.

Before I begin this new year, back to the grind of work and school, I thought I’d look back on the great reads of last year.

I didn’t read as many specifically erotic books as usual, since my love for urban fantasy and paranormal romance stole my brain for a while, but I did read one that stands out above the rest.  It’s this one:

7920450Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact. He’s far too beautiful to be a monster. Combined with his lack of violence toward her, this has her walking a fine line at the edge of sanity. Told in the first person from Emily’s perspective, Comfort Food explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment.

This DISCLAIMER appears at the end of the blurb, and if you’re a squeamish reader, then head this warning:

This is not a story about consensual BDSM. This is a story about “actual” slavery. If reading an erotic story without safewords makes you uncomfortable, this is not the book for you. This is a work of fiction, and the author does not endorse or condone any behavior done to another human being without their consent.

I picked this book up because it sparked some quite spirited reviews on Goodreads, and because I like to venture into the dark unknown now and then, to read gritty and provocative works.

This was definitely dark, gritty and quite provocative.  Emily, from whose prospective we learn of her story, is abducted by a man and kept in his home.

This isn’t a love story.  It isn’t meant to warm your heart or make you feel good.  It’s brutal in places, and shockingly emotional in others.  It’s a story about the loss of freedom, and along with that, the breaking of societal and self-imposed chains and the irrevocable change in a woman who will never be what she was.  Is she happier?  That’s up to you to decide.

I thought about this story for weeks after I read it.  That, to me, is a sign of a good book.  I’m not always out to find the happily ever after.  Sometimes I just want something real, and although this is fiction, it felt pretty damn real while I was reading it.

If you like a little adventure, you should check this one out.

Fire and Ice #sixsunday #erotica

sixsundayheaderWelcome back to some naughty Sunday nibbles.  This week we’re into story number two in my I’ll Be Damned collection.

Qenna, the black sheep of the angels, has just thwarted one of Pyro’s attempts to spread chaos among the human.  He’s a demon, and now he’s pissed and noticing for the first time that Qenna is a spicy little number he wouldn’t mind taking a nibble of himself.  Since they both have wings, their chase takes place in the night sky.

“Better fly faster, little sparrow.”  [Pyro's] snicker filled the air and tickled along my skin as I reoriented myself to search for him.  “I can take you any time I want.  You know you’re no match for me, don’t you?”

The heated promise in his words made me wetter than Lake Superior.  “Why don’t you stop screwing around and prove it, then?” I said.

Oh, yum.  If I were Qenna, I’m not sure I’d have been trying so hard to get away.  ;)

Don’t forget to click on the logo at the top to see the other participants.  Cheers, and see you next week!

Devil Be Mine #sixsunday

sixsundayheaderI’ve missed you all!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve allowed this side of myself out to play, but since I can’t seem to get my head into anything but erotica these days, I decided it was time to dust myself off and get back at it.

I’m quite excited that I’ll have a new collection of erotic shorts coming to you in February of 2013 with Evernight Publishing. Yippee!  It’s called I’ll Be Damned.

My six today is from the first story, Devil Be Mine.  These stories all take place over the course of the same evening, all couples from heaven and hell sneaking around a law that keeps them apart.

I slid my hand along Micah’s throat, gripped his hair and yanked his face down for a kiss while he grunted his pleasure into my mouth.  “Come with me, angel boy.”

I took his hand and led him to the shackles, his steps heavy and languid, signs that I had already satisfied him as much as he pleased me.  “Hold still, lover.”

“I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere.”  His smile blanketed my heart in warmth, a heart that had only known cold before him.

Ah, Micah.  He’s so … heavenly.  *snort*  His surrender is so sweet.

Stay tuned every Sunday for another little glimpse into one of the stories. In February, I’ll be giving away some copies to celebrate the release.

Have a fantastic week!

The Circle #sixsunday

Welcome back!  I hope you had a terrific holiday and Santa brought you lots of naughty books to read.  I’m continuing with The Circle this week.  Enjoy!

Heat   spiraled   down   my   chest   and   ignited   the   need   between   my legs. My hands explored the firm topography of [Devin's] back, everything else forgotten.

“Are  you  ready  to  be  mine,  Katharine?”  Devin  lifted  my  wrist   to his mouth, my desire reflected in his flickering eyes. His fangs extended farther as his tongue darted out between them, licking a wet line from my inner elbow to my palm.

I’d never wanted anything  so much  in  my life as I wanted him inside me.

Ooh, he’s such a naughty immortal.  ::shivers::  He can lick me like that any time.  :)
