Erotic Books for the holidays

My mother emailed me recently and part of her email mentioned the Amazon Gift Card that would be coming my way very soon. While I responded that all I really wanted for Christmas was love and good cheer, I have to say that books and wine come in a close second, as my mother well knows. In fact, going through my credit card statement this month, I see it’s all e-books, wine, and petrol. Luckily love and good cheer are free.

I’m not going to give a wine buying guide (except to say that if you love a rich red you really can’t go past an Australian Coonawarra Cab Sav) and petrol is petrol is gas, but books. Well, that’s different.

So, want some holiday reading suggestions, for you or for someone else? Try the below.

It’s the feel good season, so for feel good erotic romance that always leaves me with a smile, it’s hard to go past Sommer Marsden. Sparkling humor, real and likeable characters, and hot and emotive sex that takes your breath away. Plus if you fall in love with Sommer, you’ve a lot to chose from. Check her out. (There’s zombies too).

Sporty? Lucy Felthouse’s lesbian zinger Sweet Spot pushes all the right buttons.

Want unputdownable intense emotion and hot, hot sex (and lots of it)? Try Alison Tyler’s stories of submission, starting with Dark Secret Love: A Story of Submission.

Sex and food? Lisabet Sarai’s hot and extremely readable story, Her Secret Ingredient, is a winner. Or for short stories on this theme, All You Can Eat: a buffet of lesbian erotica and romance edited by Andi Marquette and R.G. Emmanuelle.

Sweet hot prose and romantic BDSM? Laila Blake’s Driftwood Deeds is for you.

And of course for stories of lesbian love and desire, my own collections Blue Woman Stories Volume 1 and Volume 2 are available. There’s five of my best erotic stories in each volume.

Want a longer lesbian read, chock full of convoluted relationships and drama? Then the entire Season 1 of Harper Bliss’ French Kissing will keep you occupied – and you can read the first part for free!

Rollicking, good humoured sex? Try Jeremy Edward’s brilliant novel The Pleasure Dial.

A different sort of erotica: Annabeth Leong’s Untouched features a main character who can’t stand being touched.

For some of the finest lesbian erotica around, try Sacchi Green’s single author collection “A Ride to Remember“.

And finally, of course, for stories of forbidden lesbian desire, check out my anthology “Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire“.

And finally, finally, if you have any non-bookish people in your life (if such a person exists!), then check out my favorite Zazzle store, Annika Eklind.

Summer for Sommer (in winter)

Summer Loving (1)

I live in Australia, where we are lucky enough to have a pretty decent free health system. But for ten years, I lived in the States and I remember well the horrors of the healthcare system, and the fucking unfairness of it all. Companies take your money when you’re well, but when you’re sick, or just sick of reading the small print, you’re dropped like a wormy apple. Faster.

Sommer Marsden, whom you doubtless know and love (and if you don’t, well, you should), has a husband, and her husband has cancer, and their health insurance company is doing what health insurance companies do best and not paying. Bastards.

But Sommer has a friend, Alison Tyler, whom you also doubtless know and love (and if you don’t, well, welcome back from outer space) and Alison has put together an anthology. It’s a fantastic anthology. Amazing. Look at the cover! Look at the table of contents. Drool a bit. And then go and buy it. Because, not only is the anthology stupendous, not only is it only 99c, but (and this is the best bit) all the proceeds go to Sommer and her family.

It’s winter here in Oz, but it will always be a steamy summer as long as Summer Loving is in the house.

Alison says that Sommer will get the most royalties if you buy from Amazon. So buy it. Please. There’s also a paperback version.
