She has generously provided two signed books and a bunch of swag for this giveaway!!! Check them out below!!!

"The Pleasure's Edge" by Eve Berlin

How do you know…
For beautiful erotica author Dylan Ivory, being in control is everything. Growing up in a dysfunctional home, she raised her younger brother–right up to the day he died in a motorcycle accident. Since then, she has lived a life of perfect order, leaving nothing to chance. Then she met the man who was everything she was not…and everything she wanted.

How far you can go…
Alec Walker is a writer of dark psychological thrillers–and a man who lives for thrills. From motorcycles to snowboards to swimming with sharks, there’s no end to his lust for excitement. His tastes extend into the bedroom as well, and into The Pleasure Dome, the local BDSM club where he lets no rules bind his desires. The only thing he truly fears is love, and allowing someone else to really know him…

Unless you go over the edge?
to his knees , can Alec take the ultimate risk and surrender his heart?
While researching a book on sexual extremes, Dylan interviews Alec–and longs to taste the temptation he offers. But he’s a self-proclaimed dominant and she refuses to surrender control. Slowly and seductively, though, Alec shows her that by letting go and submitting to his every desire she can experience the ultimate pleasure. But to keep the woman who for the first time brings him

Welcome to Exotica…a lush, sensual retreat where women can experience their most taboo fantasies.

Step inside — and leave your inhibitions at the door…

When her old friend, Caroline, invites her to Exotica for a week of pampering and pleasure, Lilli DeForrest has no idea what to expect. But when Rajan steps into her suite, the attraction is intense, immediate, overwhelming. He is her ideal lover—by turns tender, commanding, erotic. But, as Lilli is about to discover, Rajan’s masterful touch is just the beginning…

As manager of the luxurious retreat, Caroline Winter creates thrilling escapist fantasies for other women. Now she’s about to live out a fantasy of her own: Dark, exotic Kian will challenge her to accept the exquisite pleasures he offers. But what Caroline doesn’t expect is the power of Kian’s sensuality…surrendering to him means abandoning herself completely—and giving up all control…

For Lilli, it’s the chance to test the limits of her sexuality. For Caroline, it’s trusting Kian with her most hidden desires even as she’s uncovering his own guarded secret. And for both women, it’s a journey into the hidden depths of fantasy—as they discover just how far they’ll go in search of seduction, surrender, and pleasure beyond imagining…

  1. September 16th, my hubby's birthday!

    I really can not pinpoint what my favorite thing about erotic romance is. I guess it allows me through words on page to experience what I really don't have the guts to in real life.

  2. Thanks so much for featuring me today!

  3. My favorite thing about erotic romance is that it provides me with not only an escape, but can sometimes help me see other things I may be interested in that I have yet to experience (particularly in BDSM) and opens a dialog between myself and my Top.

  4. Probably for me it is the ability to escape into a totally different world than I could ever imagine myself in. There is an edge and thrill to it.

  5. I still remember when I read Eden Bradley's The Darker Side of Pleasure, the one novella called "The Bonds of Love" hit home for me after the loss of two pregnancy a few months apart, it helped me see both sides of what that can do to a couple and how bondage can help heal

    I love reading well written erotica, yes it's about the sex but there is so much more --that's the part that will hold me to a story

  6. Erotic romance allows me to become someone else... pure and simple

  7. Erotic Romance provides me an escape from day to day life. It is also a way to learn about new things that may interest me, that I normally would not have known about.

  10. My favorite thing would be the escape. More than likely their is always a happy ending or a wonderful time to be had.


  11. This comment has been removed by the author.

  12. I think my favorite thing about erotic romance is being able to escape into a fantasy. I can indulge in things like BDSM and various things in erotic romance that I cant really do in my real life.
    Both books look so totally yummy!!

  14. September 16, huh. I will be flying to MA and no computer access. :(

    My fave thing about erotic romance, huh..... I'm able to be anyone I have a mind to be. Not just the boring, old, and tired housewife/mom.

  15. What I love about erotic romance is the uninhibited style of the writing. It's very freeing and liberating and gives the reader something they may not find in the everyday.


  16. Wow-there are some very thoughtful, honest answers here!
    As authors, we want to know that our work has either offered someone an entertaining escape or touched them in some way-that's why we do this. I think erotic fiction is a sort of intimate form of writing, because sex is where we are the most vulnerable and raw. Especially in the more extreme practices, like BDSM.
    I wrote a whole blog about writing kink on the Genreality blog the other day if any one is interested:
    Eden/Eve :)

  17. Its a place where sexual fantasies can come true!

  18. I like the variety of situations and the way you can vicariously live through the characters. While it may not be something that I would actually ever do in real life, it is nice fantasies to have.

  19. Hi Leagh, I would love to win either of these books! Reading erotic romance is my guilty pleasure. And it makes me laugh when my kids 'catch' me and think I'm being 'naughty'! Reading erotica allows me to (harmlessly) live vicariously through the characters and sometimes visit exotic places...and if my husband's lucky maybe even learn a thing or two! LOL!!

  20. My favorite thing about eroctic romance is the intensity. I love it when you can see the raw emotion from the characters.


  21. Eden/Eve, I want to read these books, pick me, pick me,

The books are the type of most people would frown on and you want to read them so much more because in some ways there forbidden. :) Hope that makes sense. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!
