Between The Shores by The New Smut Project

 

Available at Amazon

A volume of literary erotica centered around the possibilities of sexual negotiation.

Twenty complex, surprising, intense, and relatable stories from a spectrum of new and established writers explore something unusual in erotic fiction: someone saying no. Submissives—and dominants—safeword out of a BDSM scene. Couples (and one threesome!) discover the possibilities and boundaries of their new relationships. Past trauma rears its head. Personal preferences clash.

Between the Shores shows respect for the boundaries people set as an integral part of sex, and highlights trust, communication—and mutual pleasure.

Some call a halt to the action. Some proceed with care and caution. Some bare secrets to their partners that they’ve never before shared. And some find exciting alternatives. Through negotiation—whether serious or accompanied by laughter—they move beyond their “no” to reach what they truly desire: healing, growth, and fulfillment both sexual and otherwise.

Islands by Richard V. Raiment

 

Available at Amazon

Menage, adventure, historical romance, and more. Two straight men shipwrecked alone on an island together for years. What do they do? What else could they do? And then a woman arrives…

The early 1700s, Thomas Carton, an English sailor is shipwrecked in the tropics, his ship destroyed and all lives lost, save his own and one other. That other, Peter Lightfoot, is gay—and thus is the last man alive that Carton or any of his ilk would choose to share his isolation. Peter considers himself a depraved freak rightfully despised by God. Thomas agrees.

Forced by the passage of time and the dictates of circumstance into increasing mutual dependence, what kind of relationship, what level of intimacy, might possibly be arrived at by two such men?

And what happens to that relationship when Fate introduces a desirable woman into the mix?

An erotic adventure and romance containing m/m and m/f.

London Triptych by Jonathan Kemp

 

Available at Amazon

Rent boys, aristocrats, artists, and criminals populate this sweeping novel in which author Jonathan Kemp skillfully interweaves the lives and loves of three very different men in gay London across the decades.

In the 1890s, a young man named Jack apprentices as a rent boy and discovers a life of pleasure and excess that leads to new friendships, most notably with the soon-to-be-infamous Oscar Wilde. A century later in 1998, David tells his own tale of unashamed decadence from prison, recalling life as a young man arriving in the city in the mid-’80s just as the scourge of AIDS hit. Where their paths cross, in the politically sensitive 1950s, when gay men were the target of police and politicians alike, the artist Colin tentatively explores his sexuality while working on his painting “London Triptych.”

Moodily atmospheric and rich with history, London Triptych is a sexy, resplendent portrait of the politics and pleasures of queer life in one of the world’s most fascinating cities.

When Eadyth, a high-born Saxon maiden, inherits her father’s prosperous estate, her villainous uncle’s matrimonial schemes force her to take refuge in an abbey. But then her sanctuary is overrun by Viking raiders, and innocent Eadyth finds herself captive to two fierce Norse chieftains, each of them a mouth-watering specimen of handsome, virile masculinity.

Blond, earnest Hjalmar and hot, dark, bad-boy Leif are brothers in search of a new home after being unfairly banned from their own country. They’ve always shared everything — including women. When they learn that their beautiful prisoner is an heiress, Eadyth’s captivity becomes an exercise in seduction, with the brothers competing for her hand in marriage.

The Viking pair’s amorous abilities are more than equal to their skill as warriors. As each seeks to outdo his brother in pleasuring their prospective bride, the inexperienced Eadyth soon learns that while having one superb lover is wonderful, having two of them–at the same time–provides sensual delights far beyond anything she might have imagined.

Now that she knows what she’d be missing, turning away either one of her ardent suitors seems a tragedy. But her uncle has not given up his plans to seize her property, and settling down with one of the brothers is the only way for Eadyth to regain her lands and protect her people. Can she find a solution that will preserve her estate — and satisfy her would-be husbands?

This smoking-hot M/F/M historical romance is a standalone work (no cliffhangers) intended for mature readers.

Will stumbling on a far-reaching conspiracy expose a dark secret or will the truth be lost in translation?

Her childhood filled with global exploration that sparked a gift for learning languages, Mira Swanson’s chosen career as a translator makes perfect sense. After she lands a position with a renowned senator, she quickly builds a reputation for being a skilled professional that doesn’t miss a single detail. But when she stumbles onto a hidden document implicating her boss in a black market arms trade, Mira’s detail-oriented life spins out of control. Headstrong and determined to put a stop to the senator’s dirty dealings before innocent lives are put in danger, Mira has no idea where to look for help. That is, until she meets Jackson Archer.

Billionaire white hat cyber security specialist Jackson Archer has been to hell and back, repeatedly. When the world-weary former Navy SEAL meets Mira, her allegations seem dubious at best and he has no problems telling her so. Mira’s complete lack of situational awareness and disregard for her own safety sparks every protective instinct he has, and the more she drives him crazy the more he wants her. But while his SEAL training prepared him for every imagined scenario in war, no exercise could have prepared him for how to deal with his growing desire for the woman under his protection. As they dig deeper and more secrets are exposed, can Jackson keep his focus on uncovering the truth about the senator and keep Mira safe or will countless lives, and their chance at love, be lost forever?
