Dear readers! The erotica publishing industry has been hard on my poor catalog of reviews here. Some publishers have gone out-of-business, others required the authors change the titles and/or even their pen-names in order to keep their texts published. Maintaining all these links up-to-date has been distressing, so I’ve been looking for a long-term solution.
Enter SecondLife. This is a “game” in which you create an avatar and explore worlds that can only exist in virtual reality. The great benefit to this world is that it’s easier for me to loan one of my books that’s been reviewed for a set time frame. Otherwise, well, the technological issues get into areas that most people won’t want to borrow at that point.
So if there’s a particular book that you’ve been curious about and is unavailable for purchase, go into secondlife and let me know!
I recommend as entertaining! 35-year-old virgin cyborg discovers that his deflowering-partner, a sexbot, is not so much a bot. More like the mail-order-bride of the station-master. So, the hero’s been blown to heaven and wants a lot more. The heroine’s desperate to get off the station before her “husband” sends her to the brothel and is willing to trade sex for it. (There is a difference..who keeps the money.) Anyhow, she takes the hero’s offer: an indefinite contract of sexual ownership (and no sharing). Now all they have to do is smuggle her back to the ship. Which is hard, very hard.
Loving Deviant by Laurann Dohner
She hesitated and his smile faded.
“Are you having a problem with your audio sensors?”
“Did I just get myself into worse trouble?”
*Unfortunately, this title isn’t for sale, but if you’d like to borrow my copy, please contact me!
I recommend as entertaining/enjoyable! Haphazard witch accidentally undoes one of her ancestors’ spells and releases an “evil” faerie. Who is pretty upset at having been imprisoned for over three hundred years. So somebody is going to pay. Preferably the nearest closest relative…who smells nice, is smoking hot for a walking disaster, and is the most stubborn woman he’s met in centuries.
Bewitching The Faerie by Cynthia Rayne
A sickening green cloud enveloped him that smelled somewhat like rotten eggs but he remained uninjured by her efforts.
“This has ceased to be amusing, witch.”
Music that reminded me of this story:
I recommend as enjoyable! The naive heroine and ape-man hero are drugged, forcing them to either endure intense pain or hold it off by having sex with each other. Despite all indications to the contrary, it turns out that this is the one time her luck with men doesn’t suck. It’s actually an ecstatic life saver. And a life-changer. You see, the drug’s intended target, the ape-man, decides she belongs to him.
The hero has a plan. First, he’s got to help her escape from the kidnapping ex-fiance. Second, he needs to move himself in with her like that’s perfectly normal. Ta da.
Smiley by Laurann Dohner
“It’s the drug. Go ahead and pull my hair, tear my shirt and bite me all you want.”
I recommend as enjoyable! Caught between a whip and a hard-nose, the heroine discovers her enemy is caring, attractive, and…not her enemy. The hero, in search of a spy to help overthrow their alien overlords, discovers his mate in the bleeding, bound woman left behind to face his wrath…of possessive sexual domination.
Codename Autumn by Cyndi Friberg
“How long will I remain…yours?”
His fingers tangled in her hair and he leaned down, brushing his lips against her cheek as he asked, “Do you really want to know the answer to that question?”
I recommend as enjoyable! Justifiably paranoid heroine makes a series of bad judgements which ends up leaving her happy and fulfilled. It’s a terrible morality. As is pretty much every character except the ones you don’t get to meet. The hero is a technologically-enhanced-emotionally-stunted assassin sent to collect her, but who collects whom becomes debatable the minute they meet. Sex scenes are awkward and great as these two characters just plow through the pretenses.
Driven: A Northern Waste Novel by Eve Silver
“Romance. Compliments. Gifts.” He gave an abrupt nod. “Understood.”
“Your eyes are appropriately spaced,” he whispered.
“Tomorrow, I will order you a set of titanium body armor.”
