One of the reviewers mentioned Ann Rice's Sleeping Beauty trilogy...Just fair warning that trilogy, although well written and interesting, makes Fifty Shades look like aunt Nellie's bedtime story. It is wickedly explicit. Another series I would recommend would be Beatrice Small's Pleasure series. Also the One Night Stand Series from Decadent Publishing, (various Authors).
Bared to you - Sylvia Day <--- very similar Dangerous Passion - Lisa Marie Rice Generational Sins - Samantha Blair Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire Strangers - Barbara Elsborg Black Ice - Anne Stuart Behind Closed Doors - Shannon McKenna Backstage Pass (Sinners on Tour #1) - Olivia Cunning Knight - Kristen Ashley Staking his claim - Lynda Chance Now You See Her - Linda Howard All the Queen's Men - Linda Howard The Possession - Jaid Black
I second the recommendations for "Bared to You" by Sylvia Day and "Knight" by Kristen Ashley (both are contemp romances, heavy on the erotica although light on the BDSM). I would also recommend Cherise Sinclair's Masters of the Shadowlands books -- BDSM club/erotica/romance with some suspense/action in several of the books. She also is writing a very good shifter paranormal series which starts with "Hour of the Lion" -- but these are less on the erotica side (although they don't disappoint there either!) If you want some really well written epic fantasy with BDSM woven in try the Kushiel books by Jacqueline Carey -- start with "Kushiel's Dart" -- really great books! For those of you who don't mid some really dark and disturbing stuff and can handle an intense read try "Heat" by R.Lee Smith -- a sci-fi/horror/erotica/romance that is beyond great, but not for the faint of heart.
Why can't I lend Any of the Fifty books from my kindle? I called and they said lending on this book isn't allowed. Is that true? How would I know that when i make a purchase? Any help would be appreciated -Christine
I've read the Sleeping Beauty series by Anne Rice and it is disgusting. Now I LIKE erotica/romantica but those series are something else entirely. More about torture, degradation and sexual frustration. Yuck.
The Kindred Bride series is really good as far as Erotica goes but you'd have to like paranormal "romance" to like them.
The BDB is WONDERFUL. Always been one of my favorites but though it is sexually explicit (and super hot) there isn't nearly as much of it as there is in Fifty.
Bared to you and Beautiful Disaster are highly recommended and are on my Kindle but I haven't gotten to them quite yet.
Master and Slave: A Covert Love StoryTry 'Master and Slave: A Covert Love Story'. It's erotic enough, and sexy enough, but the guy has an absolutely new twist on the whole genre. He writes a Cinderella story, almost a fairy tale (although the Master is a lot tougher than any fairy godmother you'll meet.) Really unusual feel to the story.
1. Bare to You by Sylvia Day (almost exactly like FSOG) 2. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire (not at all like FSOG but has an alpha male hero who the innocent girl tames. The male MC is not at all like FSOG and the girl is not at all like FSOG, but the similarity is that they seem like complete opposites. ) 3. Hearts of Darkness (short novella with an alpha male with tough exterior but vulnerable interior. Takes place mostly in the dark and in an elevator.) 4. Saving You Saving Me by Kailin Gow (YA-Mature and New Adult love story about an alpha male hero tormented by his past and saved by the love of an innocent girl. Twist is she's the one needing saving. Love this YA book especially for the call center characters. Since it's YA, and there is a hint of a love triangle, Twilight fans will enjoy SYSM.)
I forced myself to finish all three books, skimming rapidly through the repeat and never ending teenaged sex scenes. Writing score barely a D. Plot maybe a C-. Sorry to have spent the money just to have the happily ever after ending
Anything by Emma Holly. She is an excellent writer, and her erotica sizzles. But I have to say, Linda Howard is excellent and I buy everything she publishes, but she does not write erotica. M. Silvia, who wrote the Hearts of Darkness you mention?
My friend tried to lend them to me and how we got around it was my friend trusts me and knew I wouldn't go buying random stuff so she gave me her id and password and I entered them in my kindle app. If you trust the person you want to lend them to then you can do it that way.
Here are a few rec's: Bared to You by Sylvia Day (awesome) Rock Hard by Olivia Cunning Always Been Mine by Elizabeth Reyes Making You Mine by Elizabeth Reyes The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst Staking His Claim by Lynda Chance Unleashed by Cherrie Lynn
