Blurb:

Jodie is scraping the barrel trying to stay afloat. An idea arrives that could rescue her finances and bring her together in a kinky way with a man she never gave up on. She's terrified and fascinated, and tempted as hell.

Capture fantasies rule her eBook. Re-enacting one in a documentary would surely be irresistible viewing to millions of women?


But Jodie and Klaus discover that underneath an ordinary man dark desires may lurk. What will win in the end? The man and lover, or the monster?

Excerpt:

As I kissed and tasted the tears that had leaked from under the blindfold, I said in a harsh whisper, “I enjoyed seeing you scream and try to escape, loved seeing you dancing away from the cane. Your ass – I’d declare it a work of art. Yeah…” I touched our foreheads together and looked down over her face,stared into her blindfolded eyes, and at her trembling full lips and those amazing tears. I traced my finger down the wet track on one cheek.

My murmur was soft but as deadly, I hoped, as a knife thrust. “I never thought I’d say this, but I enjoy this. You might be in trouble.”

Truth and mind fuck rolled into one scorching bundle. Yes, she was in trouble, but then so was I.

I wanted to do it again. I’d saved her and cared for her so many times. She was a beautiful woman, with a mostly beautiful heart, and I wanted to hurt her and swallow those screams. God, I was so fucked up.

Now is your chance to enter for the great giveaway mentioned at the beginning.

Review: Carnal Devices by Helena Harker

Carnal Devices
by: Helena Harker
ISBN#9781419944925
$4.45 ebook
Ellora's Cave
Historical Erotica / Steampunk
Released: February 2013






India hates her job working in a brothel, but has no other choice.  When one too many customers complain of her lack of enthusiasm, Madam Rowena sends India to Phineas, an expert in sexual psychology.  Together, India is taught to turn herself into a sexually empowered woman and mysterious courtesan, schooled in the ways of the Kama Sutra.  As payment for helping her enjoy her work and find herself, she offers Phineas his deepest fantasy-making love to another man.


India hates her job, and it shows.  To avoid being thrown out of the brothel and onto the streets where she came from, India must learn to change her point of view.  Instead of being forced to be with men, she must realize that she has all the power, and remaking herself into a bold, confident, sexy mysterious woman will allow her the freedom to control the situation and love what she does.  Phineas helps with that, using his knowledge of sexual pyschology and various sexual steam-powered devices.  I was a bit bummed there weren't more crazy sexual devices, but overall it was a great short story of one woman finding herself and becoming the woman she was meant to be.  Also, the sex was amazing.

Interview with Erotica author Cassandra Carr



Today RomFan is happy to have erotic author Cassandra Carr with us.  Welcome Cassandra!



Tell us a little about your upcoming See the Light which is being released February 26th.
See the Light is my first male/male story, and I’m really excited about it. It takes place in the world of professional hockey, which, of course, has no “out” gay players. That by itself was ripe fodder for conflict, but then since I love to torture my heroes, I added a bunch of other obstacles.


You are a busy bee with all of your new releases and upcoming. What can we see coming from you in the future? 
On March 13th Velocity, Buckin’ Bull Riders book 4, will release. Also in mid-March, the very first book I ever wrote, Should’ve Known Better, will come out through Twenty or Less Press. There are also more volumes of the Fondled and Gobbled erotic spoof series on the horizon. After that, I’ve got projects at different stages, but none sold. Yet.


What made you decide to write sports related books?
Because I *love* sports. My favorite sport by a country mile is hockey, though I find bull riding to be a mix of exciting and cringe-inducing. ;-) I love the athletes that play hockey and ride bulls. They have one thing in common –for the most part, both sets of men are far more down-to-earth than athletes from other sports. I find that pretty sexy. Plus, the bodies make for a sexy hero too.

What genres and authors would we find you reading when taking a break from your own writing?
Oh gosh, I’m going to sound so boring. I read erotic romance almost exclusively even though that’s what I write. I could never name favorite authors because I’d miss some and feel bad. I should probably branch out, but I like what I like.

Is there anything special you do to get in the mood to write?
I wish there was, but I don’t have the luxury of stuff like that. Instead I just sit down and do it.

If I was a first time reader of your books, which one would you recommend I start with and why?
Talk to Me, my debut. I’ve been told Drew is a great hero, and it’ll ease you into the amount of sex in my books. ;-)

How long have you been a writer? 
I’ve been writing for publication since 2008.

How much time did it take from writing your first book to having it published?
My first book wasn’t the one that got published first. The second one was. ;-) It was about two or two and a half years after I started writing for publication to sell Talk to Me. All in all, it was a pretty quick journey.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? 
Well, I went to college for psychology, but never with the intention of being a counselor. I’m far too empathetic and would be bawling like a baby listening to my patients. Instead, I wanted to do organizational development stuff.

Where do you as an author draw the line on erotic content?
*snort* There’s a line? No, seriously, just about anything a publisher won’t touch (incest, bestiality etc) is the line for me. Other than that I’m pretty open.

What's the weirdest thing you've ever done in the name of research?
Oh man, let me think about this one…Well, I just did research into whether or not the US negotiates with hostage takers, and if so, how…I’ve also gone to some pretty interesting websites for my BDSM books.

What’s a guilty pleasure you have?
Pizza and Pepsi. I lurves them both.

What sound drives you crazy?
The church bells near my house, mostly because for some reason my daughter freaks out when she hears them.

A biography has been written about you. What do you think the title would be?
Oh no she didn’t…but she did!

Where is the craziest place you’ve ever had sex? Or where is the craziest place you made your characters have sex?
Hmmmmm. Well, in Public Displays of Eroticism there’s all kinds of exhibitionism going on. Probably some of the more interesting parts of Back to Nature, the first story in the anthology, is when the heroine is giving the hero a blowjob right out in the open. Or when the two of them are sitting on a park bench with him inside her…

Fun and quicky questions:

Boxers or briefs?   Boxer briefs. ;-)

Bad boy or gentleman?   Bad boy gets tiring and annoying. Gentleman.

Smooth or crunchy peanut butter?   For sandwiches, creamy. For cooking, crunchy.

Coke or Pepsi? (I know the answer to this one LOL) Wow, how predictable am I? :-P

Review: See the Light by Cassandra Carr



TITLE See the Light

AUTHOR Cassandra Carr

ISBN# 978-1-62300-201-5

PRICE / TYPE $5.99 eBook

PUBLISHER Loose Id

GENRE Contemporary Erotica M/M

RELEASE DATE February 26, 2013



Hockey player Jason Monroe lives a double life—star defenseman and soon-to-be Olympian on the ice and closeted gay man outside the rink. A serious relationship is out of the question, and Jason makes do with anonymous sex in barroom bathrooms, not willing to take the chance on coming out as gay in a decidedly macho sport.


Advisor to the US Olympic hockey team Patrick Parker knows a thing or two about being a professional hockey player who’s not out. He’s fifteen years older than Jason, and when he senses the sexy younger man is interested, he knows he shouldn’t give in to the attraction. The two men can’t keep their hands off each other, though, and with each heated encounter it gets harder to hide their relationship. Then their world blows up around them, forcing them into the limelight. Will their love survive or be put on ice?


Cassandra Carr is no stranger to writing erotic sports stories, but this is her first travel into the world of GLBT with See the Light.  Jason is in the closet and afraid to come out because of his career as a hockey player but finds himself attracted to one of the coaches.  Talk about a problem and not knowing how to handle it.  Patrick is not as far in the closet as Jason but he is still very cautious about who knows and now he finds himself in new territory with his attraction to one of the team’s players. 


I moved this book to the top of my “to review” list and had it read in one night.  It is one of those cannot put down books that you just keep reading because you have to know what happens next and will Jason and Patrick hook up and will it last.  Cassandra Carr is one of those authors that will always be on my “must have” list.
