While at heart stories of romance, Nikita Black's erotic fiction allows women readers to safely explore themes which go beyond broad shoulders and sweet kisses, into the dark world of forbidden fantasies.
Nikita's first erotic novella, THE RENEGADE'S WOMAN, was listed #1 in both Romance and New Releases on the E-book Bestseller List for five months following its debut in April '99. It was named the #7 overall Bestselling Ebook for 1999. CAJUN HOT, Nikita's first full-length erotic romance, was the winner of several awards, including a Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence, given by The Reviewers International Organization (RIO). Her third and most anticipated novel, SLAVE TO LOVE, was released in January 2007, and was a 2008 IPPY Award Bronze Medalist. All three books are available for Kindle.
"My objective in writing the Nikita Black books is to explore the depths of the erotic fantasies all women have, which have so long been denied us or trivialized by this country's predominantly male literary critics and analysts. Women are hungry to hear that their secret fantasies are nothing to be ashamed of, that it's perfectly normal to fantasize, and that the most powerful ones are often very politically incorrect."
Three more Nikita Black stories will be released during the coming year.
