As a fan of erotica, I try to read as many other erotica authors as possible and from time to time I'll share what books are on my nightstand.  Right now I'm reading Submissive Fairy Tales by Kitty Thomas.  It is a collection of three novellas and each has a little bit of a paranormal twist, so I am so hooked!

Amazon Book Description:
Enter a world of mythological places, mermaids, king's harems, dragon-like beings, and gypsies—a world of erotic domination and submission in times and places far different from our own. Submissive Fairy Tales is a collection of previously published novellas by Kitty Thomas: The Auction, Awakening, and The King's Pleasure.

The Auction

Belle Walker lives in a strict society where women are treated as property, sold to the highest bidder soon after their eighteenth birthday. The monsters outside the city have promised to leave them in peace, but one of them is intent on having Belle as his own.

Warning: This story contains sexual situations of dubious consent, master/slave, multiple partners, girl on girl, alien sex, and oral play.


Nerina has lived all her life as a mermaid, fascinated by humans and land but also repulsed by sex and unable to understand love. Her curiosity gets her captured by a human male intent on awakening her lust and turning her human. 

The King's Pleasure

In the kingdom of Himeros, Abigail is despised for her gypsy heritage. Pushed to the fringes of society, she’s forced to break the law in order to help feed her family. When a castle guard catches her stealing bread, he intends to cut off her hand for the offense, but the King has other plans.

Warning: This story contains master/slave, group sexual activity, mild sadomasochism, oral and anal play, exhibitionism, and voyeurism.

So what naughty little read is on your nig

I'm a little early, but while I'm working on my first erotic paranormal story, I thought I would release snippets of it in the Six Sentence Sunday Twitter party.  So this is from my WIP novella, Taking Persephone.

“There is magic in your blood Persephone,” she told me again and again, using my full name so that I would know that she was serious. She stroked my dark hair back from my face, “One day you’ll see.”

            I looked into her green eyes that were the same shade as mine and wanted to believe her. Did she know it from the beginning? Could she somehow sense that I was a witch from the day that I was born? Was it those same peculiar gifts that drew him to me?

Someone sent me an email the other day asking what exactly was paranormal erotica? 

To me, paranormal erotica goes back to watching movies like The bride, Bram Stokers Dracula, and many others.  Am I the only one that watched Dracula and thought, "I'd like to get me some of that"?  I don't think so.

Paranormal erotica is something we can easily enjoy while getting past our own inhibitions.  After all, it's obvious that this is just a fantasy.  These creatures aren't real, so this doesn't really count.

Perhaps paranormal erotica will be around for a while because it plays on our fantasies or maybe it will survive the Fifty Shades of Grey because we feel a little more free to enjoy erotica if it describes sexual acts between magical creatures.

Even though I am a huge fan of erotic paranormal, it's a little sad that some still feel a little ashamed of enjoying erotic literature to where they can only be comfortable experiencing it through fanciful creatures.  Perhaps as more and more discussion takes place regarding the differences between erotica and pornography, the blanket of shame will disappear.  I hope so.  I hope the day will come when people can embrace their own sexuality as a beautiful thi

With the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, a few other classics are finally getting the attention that they deserve.  One of my very favorites is The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by Anne Rice writing under the name A.N. Roquelaure.  I was so happy to see it republished and finding a new audience.

The trilogy consists of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty's Punishment, and Beauty's Release.  It's a collection I reccomend to anyone that enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey.

I also came across a great Facebook Page that offers suggestions for what to read after Fifty Shades of Grey.  You can find it at http://www.facebo
