Micro Review: With intelligence and dark wit, the protagonist commences a journey that takes the everyday to the extraordinary in this tale of temptation by the devil.

Description: Wendy Dennison is tired of being a starving author. The royalties from her critically acclaimed romance novels barely pay her bills. Her devoted agent Daniel Rochester may be smart and sexy, but he can’t get her the sales she needs. Then a charismatic stranger appears at her coffee shop table, promising her fame and commercial success, as well as the chance to live out her dreams of erotic submission. But at what cost? Nothing you can’t afford to lose, my dear. Seduced by the enigmatic Mister B, she signs his infernal contract. He becomes both her Master and her coach, managing her suddenly flourishing career as well as encouraging her lusts. Under her mentor’s nefarious influence, she surrenders to temptation and has sex with Daniel. The casual encounter turns serious when she discovers her mild mannered agent has a dominant side. As the clock ticks down to her blockbuster release and Mister B prepares to claim her soul, Wendy must choose either celebrity and wealth, or obscurity and true love.

The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories by Peter Tupper

 

Available at Amazon

In a steampunk society where sex is ritualized and marriage is sacred, the slightest misstep can bring your world tumbling down. In this collection, Peter Tupper explores the many facets of a time that never was, and a society that is all too familiar. Rich in eroticism, and immersive in its detail, The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories is a sterling example of what steampunk can be.

In an unnamed place, in a time that never was, sex is elevated as high as ritual, and can be had for the price of a theater ticket. In The Innocent’s Progress and Other Stories, Peter Tupper explores the many facets of a complicated, sensual, and, in many ways, rigidly conservative society. Here, we are given passes to a theater of fantasies; we are allowed into the labyrinthine world of steam-powered workhouses; and we are given glimpses into the minds and mettle of the kind of people who survive in such a world.

Roadhouse Blues by Malin James

 

Available at Amazon

Welcome to Styx—a blue-collar, American town where people can do whatever they like, so long as they don’t advertise. From a 1950s diner to the back of a rocking Camaro, the stories in Roadhouse Blues reveal sex that is by turns romantic, raw, triumphant, and desperate. Meet two women grieving the same man, a bartender looking for anything but love, and a hot, brash newlywed who knows she married a cheat. The local garage is run by a kick-ass woman who gives as fierce as she gets, and the strip club is a place full of whiskey and smoke, where memories are exposed as easily as skin.

“In the end,” writes author Malin James at lnbey.com, “sex is about people, and people have motivations, and sometimes those motivations surprise them.”

This is Roadhouse Blues. Surprise is just the beginning.

The Experiences Series by Simone Freier

 

Available at Amazon

“Sexy, imaginative, descriptive and filled with substance.  A fascinating, top-notch read.”

Spanning eight books and 922,000 words, the Experiences series challenges perspectives on love, sex, nudity and kink, as the main characters explore a mind-boggling range of fantasies, fetishes, sexual orientations and lifestyles.  Deftly weaving philosophical discussion and keen observation of human behaviour with a well-told central romance, it’s a thought-provoking and enjoyable erotic roller-coaster.

The series depicts many aspects of human relationships.  In Book 1, Origins of a Fetish, we meet Sam, whose story we’ll follow through the entire 8-book series.  Book 2, First Experience, introduces Kelly, while the third and subsequent titles add numerous additional elements to the couple’s developing relationship.

Fantasies and real-world adventures coalesce to mold a unique bond between the unlikely lovers as they set out on their journey of erotic exploration.  While being deeply philosophical and graphically erotic, the Experiences series is a story of female empowerment, and a social comment on roles and relationships in modern society.  It’s also just damned good reading!
