The Flight of the Black Swan: A Bawdy Novella by by Jean RobertaThe Flight of the Black Swan: A Bawdy Novella by by Jean Roberta
Lethe Press, February 2013, ISBN-10:

Imagine an upper class English girl kidnapped by pirates when she was eleven, and eventually returned to her family. If this sounds familiar, you've probably either read the classic book A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes, or seen the movie. Whatever you may imagine, Jean Roberta has taken the grown-up Emily far beyond your -- or the younger Emily's -- wildest speculations.

This is, indeed, a ''Bawdy Novella,'' but there is more to it than that. Emily is a smart, spirited heroine, adventurous enough to see the bright side of the unspoken (and unfounded) assumption that she must be ''damaged goods.'' When her romantic affair at a girls' school is abruptly ended because of her lover's cowardice, Emily tosses off the constraints of 19th century English society and returns to the sea on a more-or-less pirate ship, the Black Swan, manned by gay fugitives from the British Navy.

The Killer Wore Leather: An S/M Mystery by Laura Antoniou
Cleis Press, March 2013; ISBN-10: 157344930X

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.

The Killer Wore Leather is a deliciously tongue-in-cheek murder mystery set at a leather convention, allowing readers into this private world of personalities and peccadiloes. The kinkiest game of clue ever with a sex toy as the murder weapon and every leather man and woman lacks an alibi. Cleverly crafted and highly humorous, Antoniou is at her wicked best in this pageturning fetish fest.

Ellora's Cave; February 2013; ISBN-10: 1573449083

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes in a male strip club? Are those guys gay? How do they stay so ripped? Do they stuff their trunks? How did they get into such a business? How much money do they make? Do they have wild sex every night? 

This book takes you backstage and into the lives of two successful male strippers over a span of twenty years in the business. From their rookie days to their wild sexcapades and practical jokes, Take It Off! is a laugh-filled, action-packed joyride. 

Justin Whitfield and Taylor Cole are the stage names of male exotic dancers who have performed for women in Europe, the Caribbean, South America and Canada, as well as at various casinos, on cruise ships and in hundreds of clubs across the United States.

"Wow! Just wow! This, open-the-door-and-have-a-look-behind-the-stage, book is an almost brutal look at a world that, frankly I have never thought deeply about. I love the honesty and the humour. . . . Although this is non-fiction, if you enjoy erotic romance, you will find this is still a hot read." —Nancy, Goodreads

The Angel (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany ReiszThe Angel (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz
Harlequin MIRA, September 2012; ISBN-10: 0425253252

Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

Amorous Woman by Donna George StoreyAmorous Woman by Donna George Storey
Iro Books, Kindle Edition, August 2012

Amorous Woman is the story of an American woman’s love affair with Japan and her intimate relationships with the many men and women she meets along the way. In this modern reimagining of Ihara Saikaku’s bawdy 17th-century novel of the pleasure quarters, The Life of an Amorous Woman, Donna George Storey offers a graphic, erotic tale that challenges everything we think we know about Japan.

We first meet the perceptive, wise-cracking Lydia after she has returned from Japan. While there she explored love and sex in her roles as English teacher, wife, bar hostess, and the mistress of a wealthy man. Now wiser, changed by the experience and shaken by her passion into a new maturity and understanding of herself as a woman, she commits herself to a new celibacy. But when she meets a pair of attractive American students at a workshop and begins to answer their questions about Japan, she finds herself recounting her exploits. This is where we meet her, spinning out her tale, the contemporary Amorous Woman detailing every moment of ecstasy and adventure and becoming less and less resolute that she can ever truly give up love.

Described by critics as “rich with sensual detail, humor, and emotional complexity,” “hard to put down,” and “literary erotica at its best,” the novel received rave reviews when it was first published in 2007. Now available again as a digital-only publication, Amorous Woman will change your image of Japan—and erotica—forever.

Harlequin MIRA, July 2012; ISBN-10: 0778313530

Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

Sleeping Beauty Novels by A. N. RoquelaureSleeping Beauty Novels by A. N. Roquelaure (aka Anne Rice)
New American Library; Boxed edition ISBN: 0452156610

The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, erotic BDSM novels set in a medieval fantasy world, was written by Anne Rice under the pseudonym of A. N. Roquelaure. The trilogy comprises The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty's Punishment and Beauty's Release, first published individually in 1983, 1984 and 1985.

"The trilogy was written in the 1980s when many feminists denounced pornography as violation of women's rights, but Rice firmly believed that women should have the freedom to read and write whatever they pleased, and considered the trilogy her political statement." Wikipedia has an an interesting discourse on the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty: In the traditional folk tale "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. Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire.

Beauty's Punishment: This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, the first of Anne Rice's elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away from the Satyricon-like world of the castle. Once again Rice's fabulous tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart.

Beauty's Release: In the final volume of Anne Rice's deliciously tantalizing erotic trilogy, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of the harem. In Beauty's Release, Anne Rice makes the forbidden side of passion a doorway into the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart.

Hostile Takeover by Joey W. HillHostile Takeover by Joey W. Hill
Ellora's Cave, June 2012; ISBN-10: 1419965921

Ben is the last unattached member of the five-man executive team of K&A Associates. The other four, all Masters, have found the submissives of their dreams. That’s fine. The sharp-edged lawyer knows he’s the most hardcore of them all, with extreme tastes as a Master he satisfies physically through experienced club submissives. He doesn’t really need anything more.

Marcie has loved Ben since she was sixteen. He’s never behaved as anything more than a protective big brother, a family friend. But now she’s twenty-three and starting her career as a corporate investigator. She may be a blood-and-bone-deep submissive, but she won’t hesitate to use her aggressive talents to prove she’s meant to be his. With a Master as tough as Ben, she’ll have to take whatever measures are needed—even if her deepest desire isn’t a hostile takeover of his heart, but an unconditional surrender to it.

Reader Advisory: Marcie’s sexual journey contains a group scene of female/female sexual exploration. The Masters also share her in a brief group scene. Both these beautifully erotic moments are essential to deepening Marcie’s bond with Ben.

fFifty Shades of Gray Trilogy by E L James
Vintage, June 2012; ISBN-10: 034580404X

FIFTY SHADES DARKER: Daunted by Christian’s dark secrets and singular tastes, Ana has broken off their relationship to start a new career. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and while Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Ana is forced to make the most important decision of her life.

But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to turn Ana’s deepest fears into reality.

Pride and Prejudice: Hidden LustsPride And Prejudice: Hidden Lusts by Mitzi Szereto
Cleis Press, July 2011; ISBN-10: 1573446637

Review by Ashley Lister: It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen remains one of the most resilient of classical authors. If anything Austen defies Mark Twain’s tenet that a classic is something everyone wants to have read but no one wants to read. People still want to read Austen, despite her being burdened with the label ‘classic.’ Her writing style remains accessible. Her stories are populated by credible characters and she delivers narratives with a rewarding and satisfying sense of wit.

And so it’s understandable that contemporary authors would pay homage to Austen.
Mitzi Szereto’s latest release, Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts, retains the prim and proper diction of Austen’s original title, but with a contemporary approach to the erotic. There is a considered balance between the proper and the prurient that makes the erotic content seem surprisingly vivid, incredibly intense and coyly charming.

This is not the first title to revisit Austen’s work. Pride and Prejudice has proved a rich source of inspiration for such diverse titles as Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’ Diary and Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.  However, Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is certainly one of the most stylishly exciting and arousing appropriations of Jane Austen. And that’s a truth that every lucky reader will universally acknowledge.

Ruby's Rules by Lisabet SaraiRuby's Rules by Lisabet Sarai
Eternal Press, March 2009; ISBN: 1926647068

Ruby Maxwell Chen, the beautiful and ruthless CEO of a huge British business empire, is used to getting her way. When she encounters American entrepreneur Rick Martell, though, she wonders if she hasn't finally met her match.

From the trendy clubs of London to the Hollywood Hills, Ruby and Rick compete for ownership of a strategic factory in Malaysia. Neither has any qualms about using sexual wiles to smooth the path to success. Neither anticipates that their mutual attraction will turn into something more intense and difficult to control.

"Every sex scene makes sense, and every entanglement thickens the plot until it all gets resolved through a game of strategy, a kind of Asian equivalent of chess. ... Not a word is wasted in this novel, and even the scenes which involve the consensual infliction of pain have a certain elegance that seems consistent with limousines, exclusive clubs and gourmet dining. Once you start reading, you won't want to stop until you reach the end." —Jean Roberta, Eternal Press Blog

fBorgia: Flames from Hell by Jodorowsky & Manara
Heavy Metal Magazine, August 2009; ISBN-10: 1935351141

Famous for giving us some of Rome's most distinguished dignitaries in the 16th century, but also for their Machiavellian cunning and their skills with poisons, the Borgias are a symbol of Renaissance decadence.

In the final installment of the epic trilogy, Rome is no longer a holy city. Law and order have fallen sway to godless chaos and the Borgia Mafia, history's first godfathers, rule the day. Pope Alexander VI satiates his cravings for bloodshed and sex with masked orgies and the absolute power of the corrupt church. Jodorowsky (Metabarons and The Incal), and the talented creator of sensual and erotic comics, Manara (Click, Butterscotch), team up for this intense graphic novel.

Lord of Misrule, erotic sci-fiThe Lord Of Misrule by Kannan Feng
Circlet Press, 2010

Review by Lisabet Sarai: Verity Fen is a handsome, wealthy, brilliant Prince of the House of Fen. At twenty four years old, he is an accomplished mage, the most promising scholar of aetheric arts at the ancient university of Atia Selene. He is also stubborn,  conceited, careless and occasionally cruel. THE LORD OF MISRULE tells the tale of his unlikely relationship with his designated assistant Iskander - a relationship that upends the certainties in Verity's world, as his servant becomes his master and his master, his beloved.
 
This is a truly delicious novella. Don't be fooled by the Potter-esque echoes; Atia Selene is a lot darker and dirtier than Hogwarts! While Verity is immature enough to be occasionally annoying, Iskander is a magnificent character, the essential Dominant who loves, desires and educates his hapless submissive. His quiet confidence and intense focus, plus the sense that he has many secrets, combine to make Iskander irresistible.
 
The interactions between Verity and Iskander mirror the complexity of real world D/s relationships, in which motives mingles and a beating can be punishment, catharsis and entertainment all in one. The sex is extreme, varied and true, avoiding clichés typical of BDSM erotica. Like Verity, the reader never knows what Iskander is going to do -- and that is the way it should be.
 
Kannan Feng's mode of discourse is perfect for this fictional world, sufficiently archaic to carry the music of the past without sacrificing comprehensibility or indeed, currency.  Atia Selene might be medieval, but it might just as well exist in the here and now.
 
The book is essentially a M/M erotic romance and thus the focus is on the interactions between  Verity and Iskander. Unlike most romance, however, there is nothing predictable about this novella. The author weaves in several subplots and finely drawn subsidiary characters, keeping everything up in the air.   
 
All in all, reading THE LORD OF MISRULE was both stimulating and satisfying. My only complaint is that I wish the book had been a full novel.

Raw Silk by Lisabet SaraiRaw Silk by Lisabet Sarai
Total-E-Bound Publishing, July 2008; ISBN 1906590370

When software engineer Kate O'Neill leaves her lover David to take a job in Thailand, she becomes sexually involved with two very different men: a handsome, debauched member of the Thai aristocracy, and the dominant and charismatic proprietor of a sex bar.

Each touches her in a different way; each teaches her different things about her body and her heart. Then David comes to Bangkok, and Kate realises that, finally, she must choose one of the three men who all desire her.

"Raw Silk goes beyond sizzle and straight to pure combustible. The sexual escapades of Kate and her three lovers are not for the faint of heart ...Lisabet Sarai has a flair for sexy, sensuous romance with an edgy feel." Dawnie, FallenAngelReviews.com.
Available at:  Amazon | Amazon UK





Incognito by Lisabet SaraiIncognito by Lisabet Sarai
Total-E-Bound Publishing, July 2008; ISBN 1906590389

Betrayed and abandoned by her first lover, shy and studious Miranda Cahill freezes in response to any sexual attention from someone she knows and likes.

During the day, she works diligently on her doctoral thesis. At night, though, she finds herself drawn into increasingly extreme sexual encounters with strangers. Her anonymous secret life begins to take over when she discovers that the masked seducer she meets in a sex club and the charismatic young professor courting her are the same man.

"Incognito is truly a buffet of pleasures, with something for everyone. There's the enjoyment of piecing together the mirroring, multi-layered narratives. Historical and literary echoes provide extra spice for the careful reader - in particular Shakespeare fans might enjoy the parallels to Miranda in The Tempest - all sweetened with abundant humor and clever feminist twists. Always you'll find masterful prose in sizzling erotic scenes that offer flavors to please any palate. And last but not least, the novel will change your view of the world in surprising ways."   Donna George Story, Erotica Readers and Writers Association
