Delicious Pleasure - a new boxed set

I've created a new boxed set of some of my shorter works. DELICIOUS PLEASURE is a hot and spicy collection, but these stories are all naughty in a fairly non BDSM way. They feature both established couples having a super sexy time, and new couples getting to know each other and already anticipating a future together.

The set is a sort of companion piece to DELICIOUS PAIN, my BDSM anthology.

Here's the lowdown on the stories included:

The Efficiency Expert

Still stinging from a stringent management review at her workplace, office girl Susie encounters the very last man she wants to meet when she hits her favorite bar to relax and unwind. Gorgeous Noah Stevens is the ruthless company troubleshooter who's been making her life hell for the past three weeks, but after hours, he soon proves that his dedication to "efficiency" can work wonders in the bedroom.


Sharing a lazy day at the beach, sexy holidaymakers Suzy and Gavin see a sudden flash of light from the headland overlooking them.Somebody's watching them through a pair of binoculars! Daring Suzy finds the forbidden scrutiny arousing, and turned on by his lover's exhibitionism, her beloved Gavin is game for a naughty performance…

The Concubine

Merry spices up Rick's convalescence by telling him one of her super sexy stories and transporting him to a fantasy kindom where a beautiful and sensually accomplished courtesan administers pleasure to her sovereign prince...

Object of Desire

Doctor Nathaniel Bowen is a hunk, and when he puts his godlike body through a series of graceful Tai Chi moves outside in their communal garden, Sylvia Bradford can't help but desire him. He's everything she's ever wanted in a man. There's just one problem though. She's never spoken to him beyond saying 'hello'. But one day while Sylvia's busy working out how to make the first move, the gorgeous Doctor Bowen comes knocking at her door.

Fire and Ice

Cally adores her handsome boss, Innes, even though their working relationship is platonic. But one icy Christmas, Innes catches the flu, Cally nurses him back to health, and a tender passion flares as she warms his chilly limbs with her body heat. Can this new closeness survive to become a lasting glow of love?

DELICIOUS PLEASURE is available from the following vendors:

Amazon :: US :: UK :: CA :: AU

Also :: Kobo :: Barnes and Noble :: Nook UK :: All Romance Ebooks [Epub, Mobi, PDF]

Coming soon to Apple!

Possession by A S Byatt - my thoughts

Possession: A Romance (Vintage 21st Anniv Editions)Possession: A Romance by A.S. Byatt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

Just finished reading this for second time... or maybe the third? And it's just as amazing as the first time around. I'm not a great one for literary fiction as a rule, but I love Possession. It's so readable, and pageturning, and has so many facets. It *is* a literary novel, but it's also a mystery as well with a bit of a 'chase' story at the end. It's also a love story on two levels: one fairly tragic and the other sweet and hopeful. There are also many touches of delicious wry humour too.

One of the things that dazzles and impresses the most is the way A S Byatt has recreated a vast wealth of Victorian literature in the form of poems, letters and journals. It's hard to read those elements without thinking that you're reading genuine writing from the nineteenth century, so authentic does it seem.

I will probably read Possession again in a year or two with just as much pleasure.
