The Bitch Majestic by Judith Chambers

By day she is a thirty-two year old business woman.
By night she is a dedicated homewrecker.
The dreaded “other woman”.

Don’t judge her before you’ve read her story.

The Bitch Majestic is an erotic and darkly romantic journey into adultery, sex magic, and high society lust and Judith Chambers is the ultimate female predator, beautiful, wealthy, intelligent, with almost zero empathy for the men she seduces or the wives they leave behind.

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
I'm a former marketing exec from the Cotswolds in South Central England, but I gave all that up to write erotica and dark romance, and so far I haven't had a single reason to regret my decision.

I don't write easy, let-you-off-the-hook "bubblegum" romance. I like to fill my books with real people, nuanced relationships, credible dialogue, the kind of stuff that makes the tension seem so much sweeter for being so much more believable.

Having said that I do declare myself a fan of all types of romance, and I'm an avid reader of high-brow erotica, I love alpha males, sweaty couplings in dimly lit rooms, and lots of raunchy talk. I have a tropical vocabulary, filled with hot sweaty vowels and moist juicy consonants.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Every woman has a little of the character of Judith Chambers in them, every woman has a dark side, I based a lot of the stuff in The Bitch Majestic on real life experiences, but then again a lot of it is pure fiction, and I'll darned if I ever tell you which is which.

Deadly Sins: an organized crime thriller by Laura Read

DEADLY SINS is a dark crime thriller with a twisted love story at its heart.

Angela Balanescu, daughter of an organized crime boss, yearns to leave the town in which she grew up, instead of using drink and sex as escapism. Her father feeds on power, solely focused on how he can gain more territory. Vincent, her father’s lieutenant, feels no remorse torturing and killing those who betray the family.

When Angela develops feelings for corrupt detective Sean, she wonders whether she can learn to trust him and put a life of crime behind her. But Vincent wants her for himself, and she is drawn deeper into family politics. Soon she is plotting to kill her father’s partner, and she is forced to choose between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
I've worked in publishing for over seven years, as a designer for a journal and its award-winning website, and now as an author and freelance designer. My poetry has been published in two anthologies.

DEADLY SINS is my debut novel – an exploration of the sexism that can permeate families and how sin can influence us all. My next book will be about a political affair.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
DEADLY SINS is an organized crime thriller/romantic suspense, which explores the sexism that can permeate families and how sin can influence us all. I wanted to write something dark that crosses genres and focuses on a female protagonist who wants more power. My protagonist, Angela, feels powerless because she's the boss's daughter, and she uses drink and sex to escape her life. She falls for a corrupt detective and faces a choice between staying to help her family and leaving to start a new life. It's similar to THE SOPRANOS but told mainly from a female perspective.

The Velvet Chair by Christina Mandara

My name is Mark Matthews. I own half of London, and the part I don’t own, I’m working on.

Life was all going swimmingly well until Michael Redcliff entered my life, demanding that I marry his daughter. Actually, swap demand for blackmail. He’s got goods on me that I want no one else to see, so for the time being I need to be his little lapdog.

I’ll marry his daughter. I’ll give him all the status, money and power he can handle… for as long as it takes me to get a divorce. You see, I can’t renege on our little arrangement – but she can. I give her a week. One week and she’ll be screaming the place down for her legal counsel.

I am never wrong.

Targeted Audience: Erotic Romance – Adult

Author Bio:
Christina Mandara is a USA TODAY bestselling author and tends to write dark romance with lashings of kinky naughtiness. Her favourite pastime is travelling, and if it involves sun, sea and… sand then it’s all good.

In her spare time she’s usually cuddled up with a good book, exploring the countryside or baking in the kitchen. In fact, she loves her kitchen so much she’s one of few woman who wouldn’t mind being tied to it! Her first and foremost love is writing, however, and more often than not you’ll find her on a laptop spinning tales of romance, erotica or dark, paranormal fantasies.

She's a big fan of BDSM in all of its glorious forms, and her favourite item in the toy closet (a box simply isn’t big enough) is her riding crop.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Having always loved BDSM erotica, I began reading Anne Rice's Beauty Trilogy at the age of about thirteen and have never looked back. I've been similarly enthralled with the written word, but though I have written so many stories over the years, I didn't actually manage to finish one until a few years ago. When I did finish it, I decided it wasn't finished and this is the second spin off series. One day, I will finish it, though. Promise!

A Smaller Hell by AJ Reid

b139Tony Black is a lonely thirtysomething, lost in the grey wasteland of modern Britain. His lust for life gone, he sleepwalks to and from work each day, barely even able to conjur a daydream on the journey. Dianne Doyle is an insatiable fortysomething in a playground of corruption, with each game becoming increasingly bizarre. Some would say that she is simply a businesswoman trying to make a success out of her inheritance, but those who know her best know that her interest in profit margins ran out a long time ago. Her pampered, flawless appearance belies a dark history of perversion and violence … and the worst is yet to come for Tony Black: Tanner’s Department Store’s newest employee, and Dianne Doyle’s chosen playmate for her most enigmatic and dangerous game yet. This Christmas, the mundane will be a warm, distant memory for Black, as he finds himself pinned down by Doyle’s trident of blackmail, sex and violence. A Smaller Hell is a tale of collisions between the normal and the perverted; the workaday and the surreal; the logical and the absurd; and of course, good and evil. It will keep you guessing as Black negotiates his way through the darkest corners of this once-splendid shipbuilding town, guided by strange characters and the distant voice of his own morality, right up until the shocking climax at the Christmas party.
