New Release Day

Hey all, sorry for the long, long, long delay between blogs! I don't mean to stay away, but when I'm writing not much else gets done. There is good news in all this though, The Masquerade Affair Volume Three is finally available for sale and not just on Amazon, but on Smashwords too!


Henrietta has not lived the life she’d dreamed. With coin in hand she looks to flee London and her miserable life, but an invitation to her duke’s palace stays her hand. She has no way of knowing what Lord Osmond’s home may hold, but her desires and her passion force her to say yes. As she steps into his world she will find out what happens when she becomes A Duke’s Lady.

The third instalment in THE MASQUERADE AFFAIR brings Henrietta deeper into the duke’s life with no chance of going back.

A Duke’s Lady is a 6500+ word historical erotic short that features bondage and heavy sexual content.

Review: Upgraded by John Dylena

From Amazon: Cody's situation just went from bad to worse. The deadline to pay back the money he owed the mob was quickly approaching, and with a ways to go, he tried to close the gap by gambling and at the end of the night, he walked away with less then he started with.

With no money left, his only option was to hide. Instead of meeting with the mob, he chose to put on a dress, high heels and makeup, hoping that he could pull off hiding in plain sight.

But the mob's eyes are everywhere, and Cody's night out en femme is about to be cut short. 

Futuristic and suspenseful are the two words that would best describe this gender bending tale from John Dylena. When I first checked out the book I had no idea from the description that the book was set in the future, the year 2052 from how things are described in the book, but it was a fun discovery none the less.

Upgraded creates a fascinating future world where people can change their appearance at the drop of, well, a drop. Eye color, hair, makeup, it’s all easily interchangeable with products that transform the ordinary into things of beauty. It’s easily one of the most well written pieces of erotica I’ve read to date. The world is well crafted for being just under 10,000 words and I found myself thinking the book fit more with William Gibson’s Idoru than in the erotica genre.

That’s my only gripe with Upgraded. It reads like the beginnings of a phenomenal sci-fi novel rather than an erotica short. It walks a line between the two and there isn’t as much sexuality as erotica usually contains. Part of me felt the sex was an afterthought tacked on to the end of a fantastic piece of near future sci-fi. The crossdressing is well interwoven with the futuristic descriptions, but it feels more emotional than erotic.  It’s well written and an enjoyable read, but not as hot as I’ve come to expect from Dylena’s other work.

My Rating: ****/*****

Long Time No Blog

Sorry for such a long delay between blog posts, I've been really busy lately. Inspiration hit me hard and I've been writing almost nonstop the last week or so. It's awesome to be so productive, but things like editing Lay Me Bare and doing reviews for this blog have slowed because of it.

I am done the first edit of 2/3 of Lay me Bare though, and progress is being made. I've also finished half of the third installment of The Masquerade Affair! I am really hoping to have it out late this week or early next week, so keep your eyes open for it.

I'll try to get another review up this week, but I can't make any promises right now. When inspiration knocks you have to answer the door!

Review: Spinning Heads Volume One by Forrest Young

 From Smashwords: A collection of erotic short stories. This volume includes the story of an ordinary housewife who, quite by chance, discovers she still has the power to seduce and entice, and a couple seeking another woman for a threesome who end up getting much more than they bargained for.

Spinning Heads is a collection of two short stories. The first centers on Anna and is broken up into several short chapters. Anna is a bored housewife who finds that she has a desire to sleep with as many men as possible, preferably all at once. The second is called Kirsty and is more of a bonus than a second short, though it’s still a complete story.

Anna has a lot of sex in a variety of scenarios with a lot of men. Passionate new experiences, gang bangs, all sorts of naughty fun. The scenes are hot, but often a bit short and lacking in detail. One of my pet peeves in all erotic fiction is when women have multiple orgasms at the drop of a hat, and Anna does this a lot. I love a good build up to a screaming orgasm, it’s more realistic in a fun way. Still, there is a lot of fun to be had and the story covers a lot of different kinks, which means there is wide audience appeal.

Kirsty is more focused on a new threesome and there is a lot of lesbian, hetero, cuckold, and three-way sex. It wasn’t quite as hot as Anna, but it makes for a nice bonus.

Overall, both stories were an enjoyable read. There were some grammar issues and a few punctuation errors, but mostly they didn’t detract from the story. It was fun, but not my most recommended read. You do get a lot more erotica than most for the $2.99 price point, which is a huge bonus.

My Rating: *** 1/2 / *****

New Book Announcement

Four days into January and I’m already wishing it was May. I’m not really much of a winter person. At least it’s been so cold that I cannot go outside. That means I’ve been writing a lot! Okay, that’s not entirely true. I’ve been editing a lot is more accurate.

First I’ve started editing Lay Me Bare in hopes of a mid-February release date! I’m halfway done the first pass through, but I expect it will be a few more before it’s time to really hunker down and do the proof reading part.

As a more surprising bit of news, next week will bring the release of Instructed by an Officer! I’ve been working on this short since late November and then shelved it to release the first two parts of The Masquerade Affair. I’ve always loved sexy cops in uniform, so why not write about them? It’s probably going to be about 8000-8500 words long, about 50/50 when it comes to story vs. sexy times. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. A cover reveal is planned for this weekend as long as my designer gets to work in good time.

Hope everyone has had an excellent start to their new year!

Review - The Anniversary by Amelia Moore

From Amazon: Every year on our anniversary my husband, Liam, does something extra special to show how much he cares about me, and it’s always something naughty. After six years of raising the bar I can’t wait to find out what he has planned for our seventh anniversary. He knows all about my fantasy to share him with another woman, but he’s already turned down the perfect opportunity once. Maybe someday he’ll be ready for the adventure. Maybe tonight’s the night. Anything can happen.

“The Anniversary” is an interactive e-book. At key moments in the story you will be able to choose what the characters do next. Take control and decide how you want the adventure to unfold.

When I was a child many of my favorite books were Choose Your Own Adventure stories. I loved having options and deciding how I wanted the story to go. It was a fun way to read a book that got me reading as a kid. As an adult I went into reading The Anniversary with some caution. Not that I didn’t like the premise, but Choose Your Own Adventure does have a stigma of being childish attached to it.

That said, The Anniversary is anything but childish. The story is romantic yet still packs a lot of sexiness in the story. I read through choosing one path the first time, then the other the second to get the full story. I think it says a lot about me that my first choices were all the more voyeur options! Any way you read it the story is HOT, but never loses the romantic aspect that really makes the story special.

The Anniversary was a great read and you get a few reads out of it which makes it a steal at $2.99. My only issue is a couple of grammar notes, but it’s nothing that takes away from the story and comes down to personal preference. I’d recommend this short to anyone who loves romantic erotica, threesomes, and wants something unique to read. Overall an excellent short.

My Rating: *****/*****
