E-Piracy: What it is and how it hurts us all

Through a group of authors and publishers which has just recently formed, it’s become incredibly clear that there are an enormous number of people who don’t really understand what an e-book is, or the laws concerning their distribution. E-piracy is rampant and it’s a rare author who hasn’t had at least one of his or her books stolen and given, or sold, without permission.

I believe most people simply don’t realize that e-books are different from the print books they own. Those are perfectly legal to trade or gift to someone else. When we think of piracy online, most people immediately think of music. How many artists have lost enormous amounts of money because of people down loading their tunes? Hundreds? Thousands? That’s a lot of music and a hell of a lot of money being taken from the struggling musicians.

I’ve heard readers say they didn’t realize they weren’t allowed to pass their legal bought e-books on. To be honest, I believe some of these people. The internet and our e-publishing industry are really pretty new, so the rules and regulations are still being made, in some cases. There are still millions of people who are blissfully unaware of e-books and the variety of e-readers available now. Education is paramount so our industry doesn’t falter before it even gets its feet under itself.

In the front of ever legal copy of an e-book sold, there’s a warning that states: All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced in any material form, whether by printing, photocopying, scanning or otherwise without the written permission of the publisher.

Applications should be addressed, in writing, to the publisher. Unauthorized or restricted acts in relation to this publication may result in civil proceedings and/or criminal prosecution.

This was loosely based on the text used by Total E-Bound Publication and it’s in the front of every one of their e-books sold. The trouble is, it’s where readers skim by so they can get to the good stuff. How many of us pick up a pocket book and read the first few pages? You know, the bits about who published it and when, the ISBN, that sort of thing. The print is usually small, the message foreign and unexciting. That’s not why they bought the book. They want the story!

What we have to get through to those readers, those wonderful fans and buyers, is that e-books are very much the same as the books they buy in their favorite brick and mortar bookstore in only some respects. The authors work as hard, they spend weeks, months, sometimes years, creating that story you’re dying to get your hands on. They’ve spent nearly as long waiting to hear from publishing houses and then going through the myriad of edits and possibly re-writes to polish their babies. The difference comes when it’s actually published. One, you can pick up and walk out of the store with. That one costs more, takes up space in your home, kills a tree or two for you to hold in your hands and is transferable. The other, the e-book, is much easier to access. All you have to do is get on your computer, go to the website of the publisher, or Fictionwise, Amazon, or wherever your publisher has chosen to sell your books, and then you pay your little bit, then download a file to your computer. Some download to readers, some to laptops, but it’s not a book you can actually hold in your hands. The good things are, they cost much less, they’re incredibly easy to get your hands on and fast, and there’s no trees cut to create the book. The downside is, you may not transfer that file without permission. It’s against the law to do so. You may not upload it to eBay. You may not give it to a friend.

When you purchase that file, it’s like you’ve purchased a program such as Windows XP. That program is non-transferable, right? You have code numbers to prove it’s your copy, right? Well, e-books don’t have the code, yet, but they are still a program you’ve bought for yourself and which is illegal to give to someone else.

Pirate sites may say they’re not doing any harm. They may tell you that you’re only allowed to download for personal use. They may tell you all kinds of pretty things, but, did they tell you that to download a copy of some author’s books is illegal? That if caught, you could wind up in court? Did they tell you that publishers strive to have their sites shut down, because the pirate is taking money not only from them, but from the authors?

That author, who you might think is making money hand over fist is most likely working a day job in order to pay for his or her writing career. There are very few Stephan King’s out there. Most authors make just enough to pay a bill or two and that’s it. Some authors, if they’re incredibly lucky, have a spouse who helps support them so they can write.

So please, if you’re tempted to download from one of those pirate sites, think about it. An e-book costs you what, $5 on average. That’s not a huge amount of money. Yet, to an author, it’s a much treasured sale. Many books cost a great deal less, some as little as a dollar. That really isn’t a lot and out of that dollar, the author will see less than half. Royalties aren’t huge. Again, I beg you; think about what that thoughtless download means to your favorite author. He or she loses money, each and every time someone downloads their books for free. That could mean that author won’t be able to keep writing. It could mean a publishing house isn’t making enough to carry on, and they go under.

If you’re brave enough, go one step further and pass the word along. Tell others that e-piracy is hurting authors. It’s taking their hard earned money right out of their hands. It could very well be killing a dream.

And here’s a little something more for you to think about.

FBI Anti-Piracy Warning:
The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by up to 5 years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.

Contents: m/m, bdsm, femdom, science fiction, futuristic
Publisher: Phaze

In a world where pollution and greed has pushed humanity to the brink of extinction, fertility is one of the priorities. Men must prove themselves to fertile fems. For those who are lacking, or who cease to please the women, harsh treatment follows. Two new men, Jax and Trev, vie for a place among the elite 'studs' of a beautiful fem. Will they succeed, will the love they feel for each other survive?


Trev got to his feet and skinned out of the rough shirt, letting it drop to the floor. He shivered, his tiny flat nipples tightening. "I’ll get some more wood before we bed down." He turned and stepped out of the ring of light, gathering wood from the mounds of wreckage in the centre of the room. Jax noticed a jagged scar on his back, running from his right shoulder blade half-way to his waist. It was old, but looked like it had been pretty serious when it was done. He made a mental note to ask about it.

Pulling himself to his feet, Jax cleared a larger section of floor close to the wall. His bag would hold them both comfortably, and as he spread it out, his erection pressed firmly against the crotch of his jeans. Deftly, he squeezed his cock. A shudder gripped him. Anticipation made his skin crawl and he eagerly shucked his soft leather jerkin, tossing it to the head of the dark blue double bag. He turned and stretched, knowing that would emphasize his size and the muscular chest he knew was a turn on for most men. The sparse thatch of coarse dark hair across his chest didn’t hide his nipples, which he was sure were darker than his newfound playmate’s’. A thin trail of it ran downward until it disappeared into the waistband of his jeans.

Trev added a few sticks of wood to the fire, leaving the rest within easy reach. Then rising, he watched for a moment, before he too reached for the fastening of his jeans. Together, both men unbuttoned then unzipped. Jeans pushed down to knees, then both of them dropped to the floor where they pulled off their boots, Jax’s older, more worn pair, and Trev’s fine, new pair. Neither wore socks or underwear, no one did, so the squirming out of their jeans left them naked and eager.

The wind howled and sent both men scrambling for the sleeping bag. Jax held it open for the smaller man, and managed to steal a stroke along Trev’s back and ass as he slid in. A moment later, his thigh slid along the smooth, nearly hairless chest. A hard nipple scraped along his hip and down side, and Jax shuddered. When he eased down further, their bodies rubbed full length along each other, sending a wave of goose bumps racing along his flesh. His cock throbbed.

"Been awhile," Jax murmured, easing onto his side.

New release: Feral Heat, by Jamie Hill and Jude Mason

Feral Heat
The first book in the Untamed Hearts Trilogy
Jude Mason & Jamie Hill
Publisher: Total E-Bound
Genre: Paranormal/ Shapeshifter/ Ménage/ MMF

Purchase link

The female's scent is highly arousing, even to a cougar closely mated to his male partner. But Kai is no ordinary cougar. He's a changeling, sometimes a highly sexed human, and sometimes an even friskier cat. He mounts the seductive Sable, unaware of her mission and exactly what he's preparing to lose.

The talisman amulet has kept the cougar clan at peace for generations. When it's stolen Kai and his mate, the handsome Aric, set out on a journey to recover it. Meeting treachery and deception at every turn, the duo are forced to battle not only for the peace of the cougar clans, but for their very survival, and the life of their newfound love, Sable.


Chapter One
Nuzzling her long, slender neck, Kai inhaled the scent he’d followed ever since entering the clan cave—the sweet, musky, deeply disturbing and arousing smell of female. He licked the nape of her neck, unable to resist the temptation. His thoughts raced. Who was this gorgeous creature? Why hadn’t he noticed her before? How fast could he get her to his bed of lush furs? The warmth of the talisman on his chest seemed strange, out of place in this rutting, and he pushed the warning aside. Lost in a sea of lust, he wanted her, needed her more than he remembered ever needing a female before, and that too was strange.

“Mm, I like that,” she murmured, thrusting her pelvis more firmly against his thigh.

Kai reached around her, sliding his hands down over the firm swell of her arse. He was hard, painfully so, and ached to get her alone where he could hopefully take advantage of her lusty behaviour and his throbbing cock. Nipping at her neck, he tightened his grip on her arse and lifted her smaller frame off the floor. Staggering a step, he steadied himself and took the half dozen paces to his private chamber. Inside, free from prying eyes, he lowered her onto the soft pile of hides strewn across the dim corner.

“A gorgeous creature like you should be cherished,” he whispered huskily. “I can think of many things you might like. Perhaps you’ll tell me what pleasures you most.” Tearing at his vest, he tossed it aside and quickly unfastened the belt and buttons holding up his pants. It was only when he tried to kick them off that he realised he’d neglected to remove his soft-soled boots, and he dropped to the bed. He worked them off and was naked but for the leather thong around his neck.

She tossed her long dark hair over her shoulders and smiled down at him, a touch of wistfulness in her eyes. “Anything you want to do will be perfect, Kai.”

Dropping in for an evening ...

Evening everyone. I'd like to thank my buddy Jude for inviting me to post on her blog.

My name's Michelle Houston, and like Jude I am an erotica/erotic romance author.

I was thinking about doing a post on writing, or something to do with author's website etc. But at the last minute, ie as I am writing this right now, I changed my mind. I've been thinking for a while now about all of those things we always tell ourselves we will try to get to and just never do. It's something I have been pondering since I worked on a story called Sands of Time, about a woman who finds out she has inoperable cancer. Things work out for her in the end, but life just isn't like that.

Then the latest Morgan Freeman/Jack Nickleson movie, The Bucket List, rekindled the thought.

An upcoming birthday has it swirling in the back of my mind and it seems like everything keeps reminding me. A TV show last night mentioned a characters Bucket List (which for those that don't know is basically all the things someone wants to do in life before they kick the bucket).

So I was wondering, what kinds of things are on other people's bucket lists?

For me, it would be seeing Egypt and touring the pyramids. Visiting Japan and meditating in a Zen garden. Visiting Scotland and seeing where my ancestors once lived. Visiting every major zoo in the world. Scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef. Going to the Galapogos Islands, and following the path of Darwin, then visiting his grave. The list goes on ... and is generally kinda geeky in nature.

Then there are the kinky things. : ) Watching two attractive men make love, in person (no videos). Wearing a strap-on with a guy. And with a girl. Scared yet? LOL I'd like to make love in the back of a limo. I'd like to have oral sex performed on me in a dark corner of a night club, or be brought to orgasm while out on the dance floor.

Again, the list goes on ...

So my question is, what kinds of things would be on your all's bucket list? Setting money aside, it's no object. I look forward to reading your responces, if you're daring enought to share.

First review for Ghost of a Chance

Yup, got this the same day Ghost was released and sat on it until WOW so here you go. Check out what Rose of Romance at Heart Magazine had to say about Ghost of a Chance.

Here is another example of Jude Mason at her very best. Give her two handsome men, a mysterious disappearance, and she will tell you a tale of love, jealousy, hatred, and revenge all wrapped up with a shiny bow and glittery paper. Ghost of a Chance is not any different. Once again, Jude brought a pair of lovers together under circumstances more than just strange. Robert is exiled from his company after an incident at a party he really didn't want to attend. Now, faced with the peace of a small town, and finding the exile to his liking, he also discovers a mystery via some very explicitly erotic dreams. Discovering the impetus behind his ghostly visitor leads him to the local constable, and a resident hunk if he can say so himself. Finding Joe ready and willing to listen, Robert pours out the story, and finds he has more in common with Joe than either would have guessed. As the weekend come to a close, there are things to be done, and as the men tackle them together, they find they really want there to be more between them. Will Robert and Joe solve the mystery and come to terms with their attraction? Or will small town prejudice, and the 40 year-old murder, spoil their chance at happiness? Be sure to get your copy of Ghost of a Chance at Total-E-Bound Books. As with all of Jude's books, it is one you can't miss!

About: Coming Together:

August 28, 2008

Celebrate the Diversity of Desire
Coming Together
Phaze Books

Cincinnati, OH

– The latest in the critically acclaimed Coming Together anthology series, Coming Together: At Last, will debut in January 2009 from Phaze Books. Due to the overwhelming number and quality of the submissions, it was decided that two volumes of this title would be published simultaneously, both containing the stirring Introduction penned by New York Times bestselling author, L.A. Banks. A complete list of the contents can now be found online at the Coming Together website: www.eroticanthology.com/atlast.htm.

The release of these collections of interracial erotic fiction and poetry will coincide with the celebration of the birth of one of history's most passionate proponents for human rights and equality, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and it is from his famous speech given forty-five years ago on this day that the title words "At Last" are taken. Accordingly, proceeds from sales will benefit Amnesty International.

Having published four of the nine currently available titles in the charitable anthology series, Phaze Books is now poised to release its fifth and sixth. The diverse collections of erotic fiction and poetry feature the work of many well-known authors in addition to fresh new voices in the genre. Previous Phaze titles in the series include

Coming Together: For the Cure, Coming Together: Under Fire, Coming Together: Special Hurricane Relief Edition, and Coming Together: With Pride. Each is available in both ebook and print from all major online booksellers.

All proceeds from the sales of Coming Together publications are donated to charity, with the authors and its EPPIE Award-winning editor, Alessia Brio, donating their time and talents.

Coming Together anthologies have received many accolades including the 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Award for Erotica as well as Top Pick and four star reviews from the romance industry's premier publication: Romantic Times BOOKreviews Magazine. In its most recent review, Romantic Times favorably compared the series to Susie Bright's Best American Erotica series. In addition, the organization was a finalist for the Electronic Published Internet Connection's 2008 Friend of ePublishing Award for what Ms. Brio has termed "erotic altruism."

Phaze Books, the erotic imprint of Mundania Press LLC, is one of the fastest growing and most recognizable publishers in an exploding genre. Its unprecedented support for Coming Together, a voluntary nonprofit association, puts Phaze on the cutting edge of philanthropy in the publishing industry, a commitment that will continue with its upcoming releases in the series.

Coming Together: Against the Odds will have a mystery theme and will benefit Autism Speaks, while Coming Together: Into the Light will include stories about the revelation of secrets and will benefit V-Day. Both are currently open for submissions and will see publication in the coming year.

Coming Aug.25th, Vertical Tease

Vertical Tease
Author: Jude Mason
Genre: BDSM, femdom
Publisher: Phaze
Release date: August 25. 2008


Happily married, Carl Jackson has a secret, one he's never found the courage to share with anyone, especially his wife. Fearful she'll leave him if she finds out, he locates a Lady via the internet, who is exactly what he's looking for. When his wife supposedly goes to visit her mother, he coaxes Lady Jasmine, into seeing him.

Once the door opens, it's too late to back out. Instead of the simple meeting, he assumes is about to take place, he wakes bound to the wall, exactly how he fantasizes.


That was two weeks ago. Two weeks of his wife flying out to visit her mother in the next state, two weeks of frozen dinners and late nights of fantasizing. He sent Lady Jasmine a check, an installment on their first session, as she called it. He was careful not to masturbate, at her direction, but each evening he surfed the Internet, valiantly searching for the most arousing, degrading porn he could find, also at her direction. He trembled with lust. For hours each day, the front of his slacks tented, showing his erection and a spreading stain of darker material where he leaked at an alarming rate. The closer it came to their meeting, the more he trembled and the longer his erections plagued him.

The night before, excitement and a nagging case of blue balls kept him awake. The next morning, he took an extra long time preparing. He shaved his face carefully, trimmed his sideburns and clipped his nails. He wanted to make the very best impression he could. He pulled on the brand new black thong, knowing she wouldn't see it, but also dreaming about her tormenting him while he slid the elastic into place. It was a good thing the pouch stretched, or he'd never have been able to cover himself. She'd said a white shirt, and he pulled one on. His hands shook so much, he fumbled for nearly five minutes with the buttons. His slacks were almost as much trouble as the shirt. His prick throbbed and his balls ached; getting his slacks zipped and buttoned took forever.

Finally, shoes shined, nails clean and filed, breath freshened by three brushings and two garglings, he stood at her door—trembling like a school boy on his first date. It was a large white house in an exclusive area of the city. His bladder felt full, although he knew it couldn't be. He took a deep, shuddering breath and reached for the doorbell. With his finger poised over the small white button, he wondered for an instant if he should, if he dared. Then it was too late; his finger jabbed down, the bell rang, and he jerked his hand to his side.

He waited, scarcely able to get a breath. Would she answer, or leave him standing there like some unwanted relative, ignored, laughed at? He shifted his feet. Sweat trickled down his sides, and he willed it to stop.

Footsteps approached from inside. The click, click, click of heels on hardwood got closer. He stopped breathing and waited, eyes fastened on the door knob. It turned and the door swung inward slowly.

"Carl," said the most amazing looking woman he'd ever laid eyes on. Tall, almost as tall as his six feet, she was slender but had curves in all the right places. The full-length, black, leather dress hugged her like a second skin from shoulders to knees. She'd piled her dark hair on top of her head and her make-up was striking. The wine glass she held was half full of amber liquid. She posed, regally, a hand on the door and a look of disdain on her face.

He shifted nervously again and replied, "Yes Ma'am, Lady Jasmine, I'm Carl." His voice sounded gruff, as if he hadn't spoken for awhile.
"Last chance," she said sneering at him. "You're sure you want to come in? Now's your last chance to leave. You come in, and you obey my rules. All of them"

Carl's heart picked up its pace. He clenched his fists to keep from grabbing himself. "I'm sure. I can't turn back now."

She stepped aside, allowing him in.

His knees shook, but he made it in without stumbling.

Lady Jasmine remained where she was, forcing him to bend and remove his shoes while trapped very close to her. Her scent intoxicated him—a sweet, musky aroma that made him light-headed. He straightened up, and for a moment, dared to look into the eyes of the woman he'd been dying to meet for as long as he could remember. He wanted to say something, explain how excited he was, but when he opened his mouth, nothing came out but air.

She pushed the door closed and turned her back on him. "Follow me—on your hands and knees."

It was now or never. After an instant of heart-stopping wonder, he dropped to his knees. He crawled forward, incredibly aware of how tight the thong's strap was and how it cut into the crease of his ass; how his cock and balls were squeezed. He eased his knees a little wider apart and hurried to keep up with his hostess. Her scent thickened and his vision blurred.

He remembered very little after that until he regained his senses, held tightly against the wall.

Yes, Ma'am is in the bookstore!!

All righty, I'm in seventh heaven right now so you'll have to forgive any mistakes I make in spelling or grammar. Hell this may not make sense at all but I had to share. A week ago, I dug up all my courage and went into our local bookstore to see if I could have Yes, Ma'am on their shelves. Well, the woman, a lovely lady by the name of Pirkko, explained that because it's what's called print on demand she'd have to have her daughter read it first and they might take one for their shelves. I left a copy with her and have been waiting, impatiently. I just got her call. THEY WANT IT! Not only do they want it, they want more copies. Whoo hooo! I'm going to have to order more books, which is no biggie, but I honestly had no idea if they'd even take the one I left. I'm so thrilled.

Oh and I also heard from Alessia Brio this morning about the story I'd submitted, Island of Fantasies, for their charity relief book Coming Together: At Last has been accepted. All proceeds of this book go to benefit Amnesty International. I won't see anything from this book monetarily, but it's an amazing benefit and I'm thrilled to be included in the book.

I am now going to go make myself a cup of coffee and try to get my feet back on the ground.

Shoon Joining gets a RECOMMENDED READ

Becky Gaede, of Dark Angel Reviews, had this to say about Shoon Joining:

Ambassador Trevor Sloan is going to try to communicate with the Shoon, a race of aliens. However, he discovers more than he bargained for. Upon arrival of their ship, something takes over his body and joins with him. When he is sent back to his ship to share it with others, he is locked up for treason. Now the love of his life, Amanda Jacks, must rescue him and get them back to the Shoon, or they will be locked away forever.

SHOON JOINING by Jude Mason is an out of this world read. If you love a little science fiction mixed with erotic scenes, I recommend you read this story. Ms. Mason has a wonderful imagination to come up with such a story. She puts a new and exciting twist to a different race in outer space. The first page of this book made me tingle with the steamy scene between Amanda and Trevor. I just had to keep reading to see what happens with Trevor and the Shoon. The plot of this book and the elements of the new race are unbelievable. I was very impressed by the communication of the new race and the way that they become joined with them. I liked the lead female character Amanda; she has spunk to her that I liked. She’s faced with a few crazy things in this story and jumps in with both feet. Ms. Mason, I applaud you for this excellent story with a Recommended Read and I hope to read more in the near future.

Shoon Joining, now available at Phaze

Shoon Joining
by Jude Mason
Publisher: Phaze
URL publisher:
Contents: Sci-fi, m/f, alien/human sex


Coerced into negotiating with the alien race, the Shoon, Earthman Ambassador Trevor Sloan finds himself tossed into a scenario never before faced. Imprisoned by a corrupt bureaucracy, then rescued by his lover, they fight together, along with the Shoon, to end the ills of humanity.


Trevor eased forward, his cock slowly sinking deeper into the soft, wet folds of Amanda's cunt. Growling, he clenched his ass, straining to control the speed and depth of his thrust. "Hold still, babe," he whispered, arching his back. Sweat trickled off him and onto the lush curves of the woman beneath him. Her thighs tightened around his waist, but thankfully didn't pull him in.

Amanda, her dark eyes gazing up into his, smiled and clenched her inner muscles, as if tempting him to let go. Encouraging him to lose control and plunder her, like he would some outlander whore. He balanced on his knees and one hand; the other went to her breasts, the nipples like beacons, calling for attention. He tweaked the puckered nub closest, dragging a moan of pleasure from her, then shifted to the other where he administered the same teasing pinch. Softly at first, but wanting more reaction from her, he tightened his fingers and thumb until her moan grew to just the right pitch.

"Damn you, Trevor Sloan," she snarled in that sweet sexy voice he'd learned to love, "fuck me. Hard. Now!"

Chuckling, he slammed himself in deep, and had to bite his lip to keep from shooting. He kept still, one hand on her breast, the fingers digging into the soft mound, the other beside her shoulder on the bed. The orgasm he fought to hold off lunged nearer. His balls tensed, moved higher in their sac readying to loose a stream of come that he'd too long held at bay.

"What's this?" he asked in a voice much calmer than he'd dared hope for. "Trying to give the Ambassador orders, are you?"

"Bastard!" she groaned. Digging her fingers into his hips, she tried to guide him. Urged him to pull out, then slam back into her clutching pussy.

Trevor relented and eased out of her, then thrust back in. His body trembled, the lust mounting ever higher.

"Ambassador Sloan," the voice seemed to come from all around him, frantic, commanding, not to be ignored. "Ambassador Sloan, you're needed at the ready room, now! This is no drill. You're needed now!"

Trevor lunged ahead, desperately trying to ignore those words. He needed to come. He was near the moment of being able to deny the animal need. But, again the call came, louder, more insistent. "Ambassador Sloan. Respond please. Respond immediately."

With a roar of frustration, Trevor pulled away from the clutching woman beneath him and rose from the bed.

5 Blue Ribbons for 413 Remembrance Lane!

413 Remembrance Lane: Diary of a House

BY: Jamie Hill, Derek Musgrave, Emma Wildes, Michelle Houston, Cheri Valmont, Skyler Grey and Jude Mason

Amanda of Romance Junkies reviews gave us 5 Blue Ribbons

SNIPPET: 413 REMEMBRANCE LANE: DIARY OF A HOUSE is sinfully delicious! From pirates and vampires to same sex loving, there is something that will appeal to everyone in this book from today's hottest authors.

Midnight Confession-1750 by Cheri Valmont

Catherine Ashbury is in disguise as a pirate. She is in New Orleans trying to find her beloved Drew when she and her companions are kidnapped by a group of men. They are taken to a huge house where she is tossed into a room to await her fate. She wants to know why Drew broke their engagement and where he's disappeared to. Apparently, the captain that resides in this strange house has the answers. When Catherine discovers her nanny has bespelled the diary she gave her, Catherine soon realizes she's tied to 413 Remembrance Lane for better or worse. How in the world does Drew tie into this strange place and will she ever actually get the answers she seeks?

This was a very sensual and heart-breaking story. Drew basically fakes his own death to protect Catherine from ever finding out the truth about him. Catherine has waited for so long to be with the man she loves, she's not going to let anything stand in her way, especially him. The passion that finally erupts between them is spellbinding. MIDNIGHT CONFESSION is definitely the story to start this collection with. It's grabbed hold of me and I can't wait to see what the other authors have to bring to the table!

An Extraordinary Request-1815 by Emma Wildes

When Arthur arrives at 413 Remembrance Lane, he thinks it's just to spend a month with his closest friend and his new wife. However, when Henri and Serena beg him to help Serena father a child, Arthur is dumbstruck. Henri is impotent now due to a spider bite, but he and Serena always wanted children. How can Arthur possibly refuse this desperate couple? Serena and Arthur never expect to find themselves actually attracted to one another

Baby making isn't the only thing going on in Serena's life, however. She has discovered the diary left in the house. By writing in this diary, Serena will magically be able to receive her hearts desire. However, what is Serena's heart's desire…Henri, her husband, or Arthur, the man that brought passion back into her life?

AN EXTRAORDINARY REQUEST is quite addictive. I really love the tie-in of the diary through each of these stories so far. I felt so bad for Serena, all she wants is her husband but he doesn't think he's a man anymore. Henri is such a self-conscious fellow. If only he'd believe his wife's words instead of thinking since he can't offer her sex, she won't want him. Henri brings in his best friend, Arthur to have sex with his wife which was totally hot! I really enjoyed this story a lot and will be looking for more of Emma Wildes stories soon!

Of Death and Desire-1898 by Jude Mason

Jonathan and his lover, Philip, are descending to 413 Remembrance Lane on a vacation of sorts for Philip to try to rest. Philip has consumption and no treatments have been able to help him. When Philip dies, Jonathan is inconsolable. He's in a non-stop drunken rage, up to his neck in his own vomit and ready and willing to end his own life. Something strange is happening here at Jonathan's new home. He is actually feeling Philip touch him, caress him and is sure it's Philip bringing him to orgasmic delight. But how can that be? Philip died! Jonathan has cut back on drinking and is taking better care of himself so are these hallucinations or Philip's last wish in the diary finally taking hold?

OF DEATH AND DESIRE had me bawling my eyes out. It was such a heartbreaking story. These two men basically had to hide what they were from the world. During the time period, gay men didn't exist. With Philip's illness, my heart tore for Jonathan. I couldn't believe how much I fell for these characters. The romance between these two men is exquisite. It's very heart-felt and truly an inspiration. The diary is a huge event in this story and by the end, I was still crying, only this time in gratification. Philip and Jonathan definitely earned a place in my heart.

The War Within-1945 by D. Musgrave

William is just returning home from the war. He and his love, Sheila had bought 413 Remembrance Lane before he was whisked away, and now he's returned home to surprise her. He's always loved the old plantation house and he and Sheila hoped to have a happy life here. Unfortunately, William isn't as carefree about his time in the war as he lets on to Sheila. He is having flashbacks of his time fighting the guerillas and he's sure he's hearing them scream. Things are getting stranger and stranger however, when William's flashbacks get so extreme, it's like he's having out of body experiences. When he strikes his wife, he knows he's in serious trouble.

William decides it's time to talk to the voodoo witch. When he finds and talks to both her and the spirit of pirate Drew (MIDNIGHT CONFESSION), he is instructed to find the diary hidden in the house. Only with this diary can William and Sheila truly be set free from the spirits trying to claim their souls. Will William head their advice and locate the diary in time?

THE WAR WITHIN both spooked me and left me dying to know how it was going to end. I can't imagine coming home from the war and reliving all of my friend's deaths and being haunted by evil spirits. I sure as hell can't imagine being Sheila and having some strange spirit, who I thought was my husband, bringing me to orgasm. William is a hero to me and the lengths he goes to in order to protect his wife and his home will have you enthralled with this story in no time. D. Musgrave has become one of my favorite authors and THE WAR WITHIN definitely cements him there. This story will have your blood turning cold, your libido shooting up to the moon and leave you wondering just how much this diary in the house is capable of.

Let the Sunshine In-1971 by Jamie Hill

Scott and Terri left California to get away from the crime spree ripping through the area. Moving into 413 Remembrance Lane should be making both of them very happy. However, Terri hasn't been in the mood for making love as of late, which is really surprising to Scott. She's been feeling very jumpy lately and now Scott is having weird dreams. Ever since he and Terri met Rafe in the diner, Scott has found himself having very erotic dreams about the man. However, Scott soon discovers he's not the only one having sinfully delicious dreams of Rafe…so is Terri!

When Rafe comes to dinner with some wine, friendship suddenly turns to a whole lot more. Scott and Terri get an experience with Rafe they never could have imagined. When they discover that Rafe has a whole other side to him, they are unsure whether they should run screaming for the hills or just embrace his furry side. He really is the most amazing thing to happen to them, after all. When Terri remembers the diary she found in the house they realize that they may just be able to wish for Rafe to be all man. Wishing on the diary always comes with a price though. Is this threesome ready to pay it?

LET THE SUN SHINE IN is orgasmically delicious! I couldn’t get enough of the scrumptious sex between Rafe and Scott. Terri wasn't my favorite character in this story for some reason. I just couldn't really relate to her like I could to Rafe and Scott. To me, they stole the story and Terri was just kind of along for the ride. This is not meant to be critical of Jamie Hill at all. I just felt the romance and passion more between Scott and Rafe then either or both of them with Terri. This was a spellbinding tale of lust, trust and acceptance. I honestly can't see just two of these characters together. They all really belonged in this threesome they created! I am a huge fan of all of Jamie Hill's work, but I have to say, LET THE SUN SHINE IN is my all time favorite! I love her male on male action and can't wait to see what else she has in store soon.

My Vampire, My Love-1993 by Skyler Grey

Candice has just moved into 413 Remembrance Lane. She's already discovered the diary in one of the rooms and how to open it. Candy has also discovered a new friend on the property…a mangy black and white cat. When a man calls her explaining that he's the nephew of the owner of the home and wishes to speak with her, Candice is nervous to say the least. However, the man's voice sends her insides to quivering and she cannot seem to stay no to him. He introduces himself as Avakis. His touch melts Candice from head to toe and she can't seem to get enough of him. He should not be able to touch her this way! Why can't she seem to stop him?

Avakis is a vampire, cursed to take pleasure from women until he finds a virgin, whom he must turn over to his master to be tortured. He discovers that he can't give his master Candice. He is hopelessly in love with her. There is no way he can remain with her without his master finding out. Is there? When Candice explains the diary, both discover that they may be able to be together after all.

MY VAMPIRE, MY LOVE is a titillating good time to be had by all. Avakis is so protective of the only woman he's ever loved. Explaining to her that he is a vampire would shock and scare the hell out of most people, but Candice takes it in stride because she loves him. She's willing to fight his master along side him to remain with Avakis forever. Once again, the diary plays a pivotal role in their lives which I absolutely love! I definitely want a diary like this to make my wishes come true. Avakis and Candice were wonderful together. The passion that explodes between these two will leave you breathless!

The Life Not Lived-2000 by Michelle Houston

When Natasha's divorce goes through, she gets to keep her house at 413 Remembrance Lane. She also receives a strange package in the mail. Figuring it's from her sister, she dons the beautiful necklace inside. Natasha has been hiding a side of herself for a very long time. Being a closet lesbian has always stood in the way of her and her husband's relationship, but Natasha can't fight it anymore. She needs a woman in her life that will give her everything her heart and body craves.

When Natasha's erotic imaginings become a reality and she finds a strange woman with her in the bed, she freaks! The woman tells her she is called a succubus. She is sure she is just dreaming the woman bringing her untold pleasure, but decides what the hell, my as well ride it out. The succubus is here to help Natasha change her fate. Once upon a time, Natasha left behind the woman she loved more than anything to pretend to be normal. Maybe, with the help of the diary Natasha has found in the house, she can go back and change her mistakes. No fake marriage, no pretending to me straight when she's not and most of all, a chance to be completely and utterly happy again.

THE LIFE NOT LIVED was phenomenal! I truly fell in love with Natasha. I understood her hesitation at ever telling anyone that she was a lesbian. Growing up in the times that she did, she would never have been accepted. However, like she discovered too late, marrying a man to hide your true self will never work. I wanted Natasha to find the diary, to make her wish and to find her lost love. I was really rooting for her throughout. She brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion, and the provocative pleasure she discovers will make your teeth melt. Michelle Houston is a favorite author of mine and I am so happy to have been able to delve into another one of her masterpieces yet again!

413 REMEMBRANCE LANE: DIARY OF A HOUSE is sinfully delicious. Be prepared to disappear into a multitude of time periods for a few hours. Each author brings their own special ingredients to this heart-stopping collection. There is no way I can pick my favorite story, as each one I seemed to love more than the last. From pirates and vampires to same sex loving, there is something that will appeal to everyone in this book from today's hottest authors. The diary itself really kept my attention. I would love to be able to find one in my home and share all the other inhabitants' adventures! This was such a unique storyline that kept my attention riveted to each individual story. I will be talking about this collection to everyone I know for a very long time to come.

New Release: Who Races - Who Wins

Who Races-Who Wins
Jude Mason
Publisher: Dark Eden Press www.darkedenpress.com/
Genre: Fiction, erotica, fetish, BDSM
Price: $5.50
Format: e-book: 5 formats, HTML, LIT, PDF, PRC
Available: Dark Eden Press


Visit the world of fetish and perversion, in Who Races – Who Wins, where men take on the roll of ponies and women rule as their Mistress trainers. Add a woman of the old world rich, who believes breeding is everything, and who just happens to own her own stable of fine young studs. When she turns to kidnapping and torture, can the lovely young Christine and her adoring steed/husband Slither escape or will evil truly prevail? Who will win that final race, and who will be enslaved?


“Good morning, my sweet,” she purred, just loud enough for him to hear above the pounding of his blood. “I’m so glad it’s Sunday. It’s been a crazy week and I’ve been looking forward to your training session.” She unsnapped his ankle restraints and waited while he levered his long legs together enough to place his feet in front of his bottom. He blinked against the glare, eyes watering as they adjusted.

The fan motor whirred above him, washing the heat of his cocoon past him and into the small, marble-tiled room. Christine gripped the handle at the foot of his chamber and pulled. On silent rollers, he emerged, flat on his back, at her waist height. The soft, brown leather encasing his limbs from fingertips to shoulder and toe to upper thigh contrasted sharply with his flesh. His sheathed arms were still above him, the ring at the fingertips secured them just inches from the top of his head.

When his vision cleared, he looked up at the long, dark hair framing the fragile features he’d loved since they’d met in college. Inseparable since their first date, his tall, muscular, good looks and her petite, yet voluptuous, loveliness often left people staring as they went about their lives.
She’d complained her hair was too curly to be long, but he loved it and often begged for permission to brush it. The fringe around her face set off her brown, almond-shaped eyes and long, wispy lashes. A nose, she thought too wide, but he loved to nudge with his own. Her full, rose tinted lips always seemed to pout, no matter if she was administering discipline, or was happy with him. He loved her small round breasts, and the gentle curve of her belly -- unfashionable, perhaps, but soft to lay his head on when she allowed. Her lovely round bottom was her best asset, in his opinion, and one he paid homage to at every opportunity.

Her hands roamed over his body, inspecting for rashes or sores where flesh met leather, rubbing at shoulder and upper thigh. He lay as still as he could while the examination continued, but when her fingers probed and stroked his privates, he trembled.
