Selena Kitt is a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling & award-winning author of erotic romance fiction and erotica. Over two million books sold! Her writing embodies everything from the spicy to the scandalous.
When she's not pawing away at her keyboard, Selena runs an innovative publishing company (excessica.com) and bookstore (excitica.com), as well as two erotica and erotic romance promotion companies (excitesteam.com and excitespice.com) and she now runs the Erotica Readers and Writers Association.
Her books EcoErotica (2009), The Real Mother Goose (2010) and Heidi and the Kaiser (2011) were all Epic Award Finalists. Her gay maleromance, Second Chance, won the Epic Award in Erotica in 2011. Her FREE story, Connections, was one of the runners-up for the 2006 Rauxa Prize, given annually to an erotic short story of "exceptional literary quality", out of over 1,000 nominees, where awards are judged by a select jury and all entries are read "blind" (without author's name available.)
Her book, Babysitting the Baumgartners, is now an adult film by Adam & Eve, starring Mick Blue, Anikka Albrite, Sara Luvv and A.J. Applegate.

The not-as-wonderful parts: I found the heroine quite arrogant in the beginning--it's one thing to be beautiful, but another to talk about it repeatedly. I understand it goes along with the story, but I did find it a tad too much. Also, I wish what the author called 'magical realism' was pushed slightly more. In college, I read a ton of magical realism. It doesn't always work, IMO. This story would lend itself easily to an outright paranormal vibe versus a subdued magical vibe. And I wish the author had just gone for it.
But aside from that, the novella was very good. I really wanted to know what was going to happen, Eric (the hero) seemed truly godlike in wisdom and a few other ways, and the sex was kickin'. Nice read.
I read this story as part of the Love Charms boxed set.
Selena Kitt wickedly wields her pen with finesse in this contemporary version of Cupid and Psyche that is oh so sleek, smart and hip. With a story like Blind Date, I couldn't go wrong. The intro starts off mysterious, explodes into hot eroticism and catapults Annie off into a series of trials and tasks featuring a fascinating roster of remarkable characters. Ms. Kitt has her lascivious way with this mythological classic and it's all fresh and downright inventive. There's humor, intrigue and danger lurking around every corner when Annie/Psyche attempts to track down Eric/Cupid. And as expected, the poor darling is constantly waylaid by his scheming mother. I appreciated the surprise ending that was not quite a shocker (after having read the original tale) but worked brilliantly as a plot twist. The imagery, metaphor and well-researched Greek and historical references make for an excellently written variation of a story that's as timeless as Love.
