Handpicked by best-selling erotica editor Bussel, these kinky stories show and tell exactly what it means to wield the special power of being in charge of someone else.

Slow Seduction by Cecilia Tan
Two months have passed since Karina's painful departure from James, the mysterious lover who awakened her darkest desires, and she'll do anything-anything-to locate him and win him back. Her search takes her to London, where she finds herself immersed in the world of fine art and forbidden pleasures. And soon, Karina meets another enigmatic man who promises to help her find James . . . for a price.
"4 1/2 stars! This is the BDSM novel all the other millionaire Dom heroes want to star in. Tan takes an overused trope and turns it into a dreamy, erotic fantasy that draws the reader down the rabbit hole along with Karina. The sex scenes are lush and erotic without attempting to outdo the last BDSM novel out there, and James' struggle to trust Karina enough to give up even an iota of his rigid control is palpable. Readers will be clamoring for the next book in the series." (RT Book Reviews on Slow Surrender, first in the Struck by Lighening series)

In the introduction Tyler notes, "This is a novel with me at the center. That is, my heroine is based on me. I’ve sketched her with broad strokes, but at our core we are the same. She’s gotten herself entwined with an older man — nothing new there. But now she has to learn how to maneuver a 24/7 relationship."

Hot Chicks, Big Fangs
Here's a new, exciting, nail biting release from Digital Playground, written and directed by the up and coming Keiran Lee this is an exercise in dark mystery with some very strange twists and turns along the way.
The basic storyline is about three guys who find themselves broken down on a dark country road late at night and what they wind up getting sucked (key word) into. Along comes Bonnie Rotten to offer help for the stranded threesome, but her help is to invite them back to her place where a party is taking place. The only problem is while the guys discover there are only females present and they are the only guys it is more sinister than that. Seems Bonnie and the girls are all vampires and they know what and who they want and this night they will set out to get it in all their vampirish style. It's fun watching these girls playing the vampire roles and giving it a fun feeling, but with a lot dark, scary edges..
There are five sex scenes in this film and all of them are true scorchers but far and away Bonnie's scene with Bill Bailey in a back room lit by candles is the best of them all. This girl simply oozes sex with every look, every motion and every action she makes. The rest of the sex scenes have the darkness, style and theme but all work well and give the viewer plenty to get all worked up about. From an overall standpoint this film score very big. Lee, making his debut as a director does an excellent job of pacing the film, working the theme and letting the girls play their roles to the hilt. The lighting in the nighttime scenes outdoors are very well done. Everything, music, special effects, makeup, wardrobe and settings all work well in bringing this film together in a nice package.
It is definitely one that will be in the awards hunt in several categories and is another major starrer for one of porn's hottest performers, Bonnie Rotten. This is a DVD that I most certainly recommend not just for the hot, steamy sex, but for the entire overall production.—Review by Art Koch, National Features & DVD Editor, NightMoves Magazine and AAN
