Latest from Walk on the Wild Side Books

Being near Mr. Tall, Dark and Smoking Hot brings out Kari’s naughty side. One look at him makes her forget what’s appropriate in the workplace, and she’s smart enough to know the heated glances he’s shooting her way have nothing to do with business.

Meanwhile over at Walk on the Wild Side Books...

Today's showcased title is a new erotic romance novelette by the wonderful Alison Kent!

Alison is a pioneering star of sensual and erotic romance, and she really knows how to turn up the heat. Here's the lowdown...


When car trouble sends Lise Kimball into the sweaty, sultry Mississippi south, she wants nothing more than a new tire and a place to spend the night before continuing her trip to New Orleans.

What she doesn’t want is to find herself stranded in the company of Donovan True, a man as controlling as the one who drove her from Atlanta.

Except Donovan takes charge in ways Lise has never known. Being at his mercy might be exactly what she’s been looking for.

What I did this week...

It's been a busy week. I did a little writing early in the week, but mostly, I've been working on my new role as a self publisher and I released not one but two new ebooks. Both of these titles are brand new, original works, not retreads of previously published titles. They're shorter items, what I'd call novelettes or novellas, not densely plotted, more like snapshots of the romantic and erotic lives of their characters. Hopefully, they're tasty little nibbles for readers to enjoy while they wait for the next traditionally epublished and print published Portia items. :)

The first release, out last Monday is...


This one's a shortie, a 9.8K word novelette about a couple who enjoy the pleasures of BDSM.

Alice Porter loves antique markets and flea markets and has a tendency towards extravagance. At one of these events, she discovers the contents of an Edwardian household, including a rattan cane and what seems to be a punishment diary, and wouldn't you know, even though she's supposed to be economizing, she splashes out on the diary and a few other items. The diary is astounding, and very arousing, but what Alice doesn't realize is that her sexy and handsome husband Julian has bought the rattan cane... and to her great surprise, he knows how to use it. Their daring games and experimentation with the joys of erotic punishment quickly reveal to Alice a hidden secret about her beloved husband's past... and open a door to a new world of passion for the future.

Forbidden Treasures is available from these outlets: Smashwords, Amazon Kindle US, Amazon Kindle UK and All Romance eBooks

Release number two, out yesterday, is...


This title is slightly longer ie. 17K words approx, and is the story of a woman who escapes an unhappy experience in the arms of not one, but two lovers, in a sexy ménage à trois.

Laurie Jones has been cruelly dumped by her fiancé almost days before their wedding was due to take place. As the honeymoon is non refundable, she decides to flee to the Caribbean resort on her own, in an attempt to at least partially forget her sorrows by savoring the warm sun, blue seas and exotic tropical ambiance. It's tough spending time at a lovers' resort on her own, but before long, she finds compensation in the form of a spot of naughty voyeurism, and soon, even better, she becomes involved herself with a pair of deliciously handsome hunks, Ed and Denny, who not only take pleasure in each other, but also desire Laurie too. The trio quickly bond in an intense erotic threesome, and when the holiday is over, that's only the beginning...

IN THE FLESH cover - just wow!

I'm speechless with delight!

Another goodie from WALK ON THE WILD SIDE BOOKS!

And this time it's the first WotWS release from my friend and critique partner, the fabulous Saskia Walker! MINDING AMY is a fun and super-sexy contemporary, featuring a fantastic strong, but impetuous heroine, and the gorgeous hunk who's assigned to keep her safe. Here's the blurb:

Sassy London journalist, Amy Norton, is on the trail of a missing TV celebrity. When her over-protective father hires a bodyguard to accompany her during her investigative work, she’s furious. Things only get worse when she realizes the bodyguard is the guy she mistakenly approached on a blind date the night before. She was all over the man and embarrassed herself, big time. The last thing she wants is to have him obstructing her investigation, gorgeous though he is.

Undercover Investigator, Sebastian Armitage, is amused and fascinated by the situation and sets out to charm the pants off the hot-headed Ms Norton. She is one sexy lady, and he wants her. Before long they embark on a red-hot affair, but how is Sebastian going to point out that she’s going about investigate work the wrong way, while keeping her sweet?

You can find out more about Amy and Sebastian and their hot adventures by visiting the Walk on the Wild Side Books website. Or alternatively nip over to Saskia's Blog, where there's a nice chunky excerpt to whet you appetite.

Just a bit of creepy fun!

I'm having lots of fun with self publishing at the moment, and in the process of experimenting with something a bit different, I think I've invented a new genre...

Wesley and the Sex Zombies is a short, rather macabre, and kind of sexy tale about a lonely and unhappy young man who meets a beautiful but very disreputable pair of travelers in a motorway cafe... and little realizes that his interesting new friends are ever so slightly dead! 

So, to try a taster of something a tad unusual from Portia, go here to read an excerpt.

If you decide to take the plunge, let me know what you think.

GLINT is out today!

GlintI'm thrilled to announce that my first ever Walk on the Wild Side Books title is officially published today!

GLINT is an erotic short story about Suzy and Gavin, a sexy loving couple who are on holiday the seaside. Something about the sun on their skin and the bracing sea breezes seems to bring out the daring and adventurous qualities in this pair, and before long, they're involved in wickedly naughty exhibitionist frolics on the sand, putting on an erotic performance for a mysterious voyeur watching them from the headland.

But that's not all. Having put on a show themselves, it's not long before Suzy and Gavin are turning the tables, and observing another pair of sexy holiday makers who like to make love for an audience.  Naturally one thing leads to another and these voyeuristic thrills spur their desire yet again...

GLINT is a 5700 word slice of life story, a pocket size snapshot of Suzy and Gavin's relationship. It was originally published in a couple of print anthologies, but this release is an enhanced and rewritten version of the original story... and over twice as long as the printed version with masses more sexy action for these two happy, frisky lovers.

You can find GLINT for sale at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, All Romance Ebooks and Smashwords, with additional outlets to follow.

Here's an excerpt

Happy reading, and here's hoping you enjoy this hot interlude of fun in the sun!

With This Ring, I Thee Bed - out now!

This super Harlequin Spice short story anthology is now available! With This Ring, I Thee Bed is a themed collection of stories, all embracing the theme of weddings and matrimony, from the early thrill of engagement, right through to anniversary celebrations of long married couples. Here's the official blurb:

In this sizzling new treasury, erotica maestro Alison Tyler has assembled over two dozen titillating tales of couples taking each other to new heights of happily bedded bliss.
Imagination and experimentation are the watchwords as sexy spouses live out fantasies both intimate and elaborate: naughty new settings, new toys…even new partners. There are virgin brides, wicked wedding nights, impetuous swingers and some kinky couplings that give "tying the knot" a whole new meaning!
Seductively spun by such genre luminaries as Kate Pearce, Kristina Wright, Cheyenne Blue, Portia Da Costa, Rachel Kramer Bussel and Janine Ashbless—plus a teasing little tale from the editor herself—these stories prove that the honeymoon is just the beginning!

As you can see, something for everyone! My story, Anniversary Waltz, is about Amanda and Julian, a mature and sophisticated couple who've been married quite some time and have developed some deliciously kinky ways of celebrating their enduring and love-filled union. Basically, they adore playing BDSM games with a faux "domestic discipline" twist... ;)
