Our Way by Sofia Thomas

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Deceptively sweet and easy to read, this book sneaks up on your like a single malt, until the goodness of the characters are woven so wonderfully together that they become a part of you. It’s an MFM menage that mixes small-town life in modern America with respect for the old ways, and ancestral folklore from Europe and Scotland.

Description: Join our trio on their way to the happiest of ever-afters, with plenty of romance and steam to keep you reading:

Bibi: I am supposed to do what? Yes; August and Reid are prime examples of manhood, and I have loved them since I was a child. Either one would make a perfect husband. For someone else.I can’t move back here and give up everything I worked so hard for. But that isn’t even the worst of it. My grandmother says I must marry both of them. She says the old family sagas tell her so. It’s insane.Right?

Reid: I know that it’s Bibi I have been waiting for all this time. I would do anything to make her mine forever. But how can I make her see that if she doesn’t even want to look at me? And now they tell me I can have her, that we are meant for each other. As if I did not know already. There is, however, one tiny little hitch; I have to share her with my best friend.

August: Why is everything so complicated when I am back home? My life is easy in the city. Fast cars, loads of cash, lots of women. Nothing is tugging at my heartstrings. Cars, suits and apartments, one is much like the next. Same goes for the women. But none of them can ever hold a candle to Bibi. And now her grandfather has summoned me back home.

Phantom The Immortal by Mitzi Szereto and Ashley Lister

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Literary, theatrical, operatic, with all the dark swooning grandeur and magical artifice that the theatre itself holds. Lush concoctions of unhurried phrases breath dark sensuality into sumptuously-described coupling. Every paragraph holds a metaphoric gem, making this writing ‘simply gorgeous’!

Description: Sexual desire and soul-searing need fuel this contemporary erotic sequel that relocates the original character from Gaston Leroux’s classic novel The Phantom of the Opera to present-day Paris…

While attending an auction of music memorabilia, young soprano Christine Delacroix bids on some letters written by another young soprano, Christine Daaé, who lived during the 19th century. Here she meets the handsome Compte Rezso Esterhazy, who immediately sets out to court her. Despite his attentions, Christine becomes obsessed with the Daaé letters and her namesake’s mysterious “Angel of Music”—a masked man who lived beneath the Paris Opera House.

Seemingly immortal and frozen in time, the Phantom is condemned to life below the opera house and in the shadows…until Christine Delacroix auditions for a minor role in Faust. Convinced the Christine from his past has been returned to him, he sets out for her to have the lead female role. He visits her in her dressing room to give her singing lessons, all the while remaining hidden from view. Insanely jealous over Christine’s budding romance with the Compte, the Phantom abducts her and takes her to his underground lair, where the singing lessons continue. Only this time they are far more depraved and sexual in nature.

A debut writing collaboration from bestselling authors Mitzi Szereto and Ashley Lister!

Wuthering Nights by I.J. Miller

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Although there’s a bit of ‘tell, don’t show’ early on, we warmed to the writing as it went along. Rewriting arguably the best gothic romance -with its undercurrent of dark tempestuous love/hate – is a tall order. Lovers of Bronte will either adore it as an expressive extension or despise it as sacrilege.

Description: Romantics everywhere have been enthralled by Emily Bronte’s classic novel of the tragic love between beautiful, spirited Catherine Earnshaw and dark, brooding Heathcliff. The restrained desire between these two star-crossed lovers has always smoldered on the page. And now it ignites into an uncontrollable blaze. In WUTHERING NIGHTS, writer I.J. Miller reimagines this timeless story to reveal the passion between Catherine and Heathcliff–in all its forbidden glory. Set against the stark, raw beauty of the English moors, Heathcliff, an abandoned orphan, recognizes his soulmate in wild, impulsive Catherine, the only woman who can tame his self-destructive nature. And Catherine cannot deny the all-consuming desire she feels for him, despite his low birth. Together they engage in a fiery affair–one that will possess them, enslave them, and change their destinies forever…

Micro Review: She had us eating out of the palm of her hand at the first line: ‘The branches of a weeping willow caress the dark grass as gently as a lover’s fingers.’ Gorgeous writing, so lush and full of voluptuous imagery, like a ripe peach bitten into with sweet, sticky juice dribbling down the chin.

Which is just as it should be.”—Niall Griffiths, author of “Wreckage” and “Sheepshagger” “The strength of this collection lies in its imaginative grasp of the wide variety of cultures, landscapes and emotional engagement of the reader as well the sexual.”—Tobsha Learner, bestselling author of “Picture This”

Rajasthani Moon by Lisabet Sarai

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: This is the author’s mashup of romance sub-genres steampunk, BDSM, shapeshifter, Bollywood, spy novel and menage.

Description: Neither kink nor curse can stop a woman with a mission. Cecily Harrowsmith, secret agent extraordinaire, is a woman on a mission. When the remote Indian kingdom of Rajasthan refused to remit its taxes to the Empire, Her Majesty imposed an embargo. Deprived of the energy-rich mineral viridium, essential for modern technology and development, Rajasthan was expected to quickly give in and resume its payments. Yet after three years, the rebellious principality still has not knuckled under. Cecily undertakes the difficult journey to the rugged, arid land of the Rajputs to determine how it has survived, and convince the country to return to the Empire’s embrace. Instead, she’s taken captive by a brigand and delivered into the hands of the sexy but sadistic Rajah Amir, who expertly mingles torture and delight in his interrogation of the voluptuous interloper. Cursed before birth , the ruler’s half-brother, Pratan, changes to a ravening wolf whenever the moon is full. Cecily uncovers the counter-spell that can reverse the effects of the former queen’s hex and tries to trade that information for her freedom. Drawn to the fierce wolf-man and sympathising with his suffering, she volunteers to serve as the sacrifice required by the ritual—offering her body to the beast. Cecily must accomplish the task entrusted to her by the Empire. But can she bear to leave the virile half-brothers and their colourful land to return to her life in England?

The Killer Wore Leather by Laura Antoniou

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Sharp as a rapier, beautifully tongue in cheek, and full of wit, this is a wildly mayhem-filled joyous romp of a murder mystery.

Description: 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. Enter Detective Rebecca Feldblum of the Midtown East Precinct. Assigned to this doozy of a case because, as one of NYC’s only out lesbian detectives, her Lieutenant seems to believe these are “her people.” Shocked, amazed and alternately puzzled and amused, Detective Feldblum must navigate a world of doms and subs, masters and mistresses, pups and trainers, leather, latex and lingerie, and discover who murdered the late Mack Steel – and hopefully do it before the weekend is over and everyone goes home. In the process, she will discover more about the sexual underworld than she ever really wanted to know, and more about her own past than she could have ever imagined. Written in the classic spirit of Sharyn McCrumb’s Bimbos of the Death Sun, The Killer Wore Leather is both an engaging mystery and a humorous glimpse into the world of modern, pansexual international leather/BDSM contests and conferences.

The Museum of Deviant Desires by Fulani

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Sensual erotica centred around the subculture of dark BDSM with its harsh devotion and seemingly-at-times cruel brutality, but seasoned always with affection and devotion, providing insight into how the participants feel. Some may find it too much, but for those who venture, these powerful images will not fail to affect.

Description: Eleven erotic stories to excite, entertain, enthrall, and overstimulate the imagination, covering men’s adventure magazines with their sleazy sexploitation and politically incorrect pictures of tortured women; sex and bondage in an abandoned building and a burned-out car wreck; and sex, photography, and the internet. They investigate the sense of anticipation just before a corporal punishment scene, and what characters in bdsm stories think about the painful pleasures the author inflicts on them. They explore internet piracy and how royalties may be collected in the future. And they expose you to the late-night weirdness of sex, perversion, and fetish at a music festival. And then there’s the question of vacuum cleaners. Vacuum cleaners can be erotic in a technosexual kind of way. Fulani is a master of erotic writing and a prolific author whose recent publications include the lesbian vampire novella The Vampire Skye, and stories of sex, fetish, and bondage in the bohemian world of Hanging Around. Rich with insights into the passion that attracts and binds, his distinctive dark erotica blends bdsm, fetish, and futuristic themes with imagination and humor.

The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy/Quartet by A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice)

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Anne Rice (author of Interview with the Vampire) trades sensual gothic horror/tragedy for sensual debauchery in this modern take on a classic fairy tale. Sumptuously descriptive and wickedly depraved, the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy has become an erotica modern classic.

Description: In the traditional folktale of “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. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind’s unconscious. In the first book of the trilogy, Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty’s complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience.

Wetware: Cyberpunk Erotica by Violet Blue (Editor)

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: An accessible assembly of cyberpunk erotica. Even the foreword is well worth the price of admission.

Description: yberpunk anti-heroes face global conspiracies, misused government R&D, thugs, drugs, true love, artificial intelligence, and vengeful sexbots in this collection’s heady mix of sci-fi and sex. Wetware shows how hot “high tech low life” can be when all the glittering and frightening possibilities of cyberpunk meet the crisis point of sexual need. Seven unpredictable stories depict hackers, transhumans, androids, pop stars, armed revolutionaries, government contractors and more who discover that sex is hotter with hacked, stolen and renegade tech — especially when it’s a high-risk proposition. Cyberpunk’s sexuality has always been transgressive and prescient; this collection brings the genre’s tradition into the current state of cyberpunk affairs. Wetware isn’t a typical erotica collection, nor is it a typical sci-fi anthology. It’s also a rich celebration of hacker and cyberpunk culture, within the hallmarks of this culture’s rich and diverse sexualities and genders. It’s a tech-savvy, philosophically-rich, erotic anthology artfully spiked with cyberpunk-themed cocktail recipes and recommendations for sexy cyberpunk films, books, and anime.

Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica by D.L. King (editor)

 

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Engaging, imaginative, with sensuality wonderfully described, even veiled under propriety of the Victorian era.

Description: The Victorians wrote some of the best and most enduring erotica. For such a tightly-laced age, people spent a lot of time thinking about things carnal. The rich and slightly decadent visuals of the steam age lend themselves perfectly to the new carnality of post-punk era. And, of course, what is repressed will be even more exciting once the corset is unlaced. Steampunk, even without sex, is erotic; with sex, it’s over-the-top hot. A widowed lady engineer invents a small device that can store the energy from sexual frustration and convert it to electricity to help power a home. Teresa Noelle Roberts shows us what it can do, confronted with sexual fulfillment. What volume of steampunk would be complete without a tale of sailing ships and the men who sail them? If your taste runs to sexy pirates in space, Poe Von Page will delight you with the mutinous crew of the Danika Blue and their new captain. Then there’s the very special room on the top floor in the House of the Sable Locks, a brothel where sexually discriminating men go to have their fantasies fulfilled. Even if a man daren’t put those fantasies into words, Elizabeth Schechter’s “Succubus” will give the madam all the information she needs with which to make her clients happy. There are brothels, flying machines, steam-powered conveyances, manor houses, spiritualist societies. These stories afford intelligently written, beautifully crafted glimpses into other worlds, where the Carnal Machines won’t fail to seduce you, get you wet or make you hard. A happy ending is guaranteed.

Micro Review: Carrie’s Story and its sequel, Safe Word, are quintessential examples of long-form BDSM ‘erotica with a story’. Relayed in first person, we learn not only of what has happened and is happening to the submissive Carrie, but also her reflections, thoughts and reactions to it all.

Description: “I had been Jonathan’s slave for about a year when he told me he wanted to sell me at an auction. I wasn’t in any condition to respond when he told me this.” So begins Carrie’s tale of uncompromising sexual adventure. Set in San Francisco and Napa Valley, this is an erotic journey into the netherworld of slave auctions and training regimes. Imagine Story of O starring a Berkeley Ph.D. in comparative lit who moonlights as a bike messenger and has a penchant for irony, self-analysis, and anal sex. “My favorite neo-Victorian erotic romance writer … bring on the ponies!” — Susie Bright

The Fairy Tale Heat Series by Lidiya Foxglove

Available at Amazon

Micro Review: Atmospheric, lilting and ethereal. Fairy tales retold with deep description and imagination. Storytelling in the true sense of tales woven from the fabric of imagination. Twists and turns and changes of yarn, vivid world-building of swirling colours well described, amid wondering where the story is leading as you head further into the delightful labyrinth. Every little girl’s (and big girls?) princess fairy tales come to life. Enjoyable, if spasmodically serpentine, reading.

Description: For the past ten years, the Goblin King has stayed locked away in his caverns. He only opens his doors for one purpose: he will give one gold coin for every night a girl is willing to spend with him. Despite his fearsome reputation, his fangs and claws, the girls come back safe and sound, and they never say a word about it. One must be very desperate to accept such an offer…or very curious. Well, everyone says curiosity has always been my downfall. Too clever for a girl so beautiful. Now my family is on the brink of losing everything. My sister Clara knows the goblin king’s story has always intrigued me, and she’s willing to sacrifice me to get her hands on his money. But I finally have the chance to sate my curiosity. What will I find when I get there? A man who is cruelly cursed, haunted by a past misdeed? Or the man who will unlock all of my secret desires? It has been a long time since the Goblin King trusted anyone, but if he is willing to trust me, I might be able to save him and his people. But the witch who cursed him is close at hand, and she doesn’t play fair. Beauty and the Goblin King is a fairy tale retelling for those who like an adorable happily ever after with a side of serious steaminess!
