This book is filled with steamy erotic stories and poetry that explore a common thread; dominance, and subjugation.
Sometimes the thread is a subtle one as in the short story ‘Game of Hearts’. Where a wood-be suitor confronts his queen and lays his life on the line in hopes of winning her affection. A sweet story with characters you may have run across before. Or in the cuckolding short story ‘Not what I was expecting’ that deals with an unfaithful man who, returning home, discovers his wife has been carrying on her own affair for some time. How he deals with their newfound roles and the unique twist that lies therein definitely fits the thread.
Then again, sometimes it’s more apparent and direct as in the poem ‘Stalker’ that details the inner workings of a mild-mannered man’s psyche as he plans to dominate the striking young woman he sees at the coffee shop. Or in the vignette ‘Anticipation’ where the lead character must undergo a regiment of psychological and emotional trials as an initiate of an inner circle of demanding and frustratingly teasing mistresses.
All of these stories and poems fit together, woven just so, to create a patchwork quilt of erotic power plays and domination. Forbidden thoughts is an anthology and contain the following stories and poems:
– A Game of Hearts
– Taking Him, Home
– Not What I Was Expecting

Colloquies are just conversations and these conversations are universal
Beauty has many colours is a prose and poetry styled writ exploring the colourful nature of love in its brightness and dullness. It is the first of many to come from the Savage Gentleman Series, each having its own uniqueness.
This is magical poetry that speaks straight to the heart. Spoken word poet Matt Gardner writes in the simple, beautiful style of traditional poets with the exciting devices and clarity of a performance poet. Life is truly a winding road.
If I Could, with each word, create a Da Vinci Style picture of her. I’m sure my readers would become her lovers, even though my poor heart cries not only of jealousy but also of glory for sharing the essence of that beautiful creature made by God: my guardian angel.Leticia was the base of my entire life. Nothing more beautiful can happen to a human being than finding his other half. She was for me “illusion, love, peace, my strength and my weakness, my life”- a castle of passion and glory built during six years of going out together and sever years of marriage. In every space of it, we hung a secret, a souvenir, a word that the next day we renewed with love. But the devil in the dark let fall on it his fury, and like lightning, the morning of June 5 fell suddenly……
Expressions of Humanity is a collection of poetry and descriptive accounts about people and for people. Our lives are a result of the way we interact with each other. Our common needs, emotions and thought patterns make us human.
This is an autobiographical look at different characters, society and encounters with fellow human beings. The book speaks of what we are capable of and the problems we face without neglecting to commend our inherent beauty.
You never know who you’ll fall in love with, or why, or whether it’s a good idea – ask Rowan in A Star, A Stone. A sudden rainstorm – Stormy Weather – or even an exercise class – The Queen of Heaven – can be the spark that creates abandon and exhilarating passion between two lovers. In Dolce, a full-course Italian meal prepared with love whets . . . other appetites.
The stories in Perfect Need explore what love and passion can become, how they can affect two people for a moment, or for a lifetime; when they tumble into a love they never expected; when they decide it’s worth the risk to stay . . . or not.
In Spanish, the pain of letting go, the lense through which this author filters her soul to later pour it over these poems, is called “desamor” (loosely, “unlove”). Mariana Torres’ “Sonetosdel Amor y susContrarios” is both witty and playful, painful and passionate. “Unlove” is one of the hazards of loving. These remarkable poems, one of its fortunate byproducts.
Laura Roberts was born in 1978 and immediately began writing the story of her life, after staring up at a spinning mobile above her crib for a sufficient period of time and thinking, “I could do better than that.” Though the intervening years have seen her scribbling in notebooks, Harriet the Spy-style, as well as concocting rude gossip rags about her friends and family (hello, “Gossip World!”), she first debuted her special brand of insanity in a university-level screenwriting class, where her final project was a Hal Hartley-inspired fanfic tribute to David Duchovny whose climax saw the protagonist wielding two menacing halves of Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason in a boxing match against Duchovny’s real-life wife, Téa Leoni. She received an A from her professor, as well as the astute comment, “You got away with a lot.”
She has been getting away with a lot more ever since, including crime fiction, erotica, sex columns, an honors degree in Creative Writing and English Literature, thinly veiled tracts against her former home base in Austin, Texas, and a ninja versus pirates cavalcade.
Laura is the author of NINJAS OF THE 512, aka the best novel you’ll ever read about pirates, ninjas and evil politicians in Austin, Texas. Her second novel, NAKED MONTREAL, about her time as a sex columnist in the Sin City of the North, is available in serial format. She is also pondering a ninja follow-up that features ninjas versus robots. In her copious spare time, Laura curates the cheeky literary magazine Black Heart, which features indie authors’ poetry and prose on a daily basis, and lives in an Apocalypse-proof bunker in SoCal with her artist husband and their literary kitty, Nedward Carlos Nedwards.
THE PORTABLE LAURA ROBERTS is Laura’s most egotistical anthology to date, but she hopes her friends and fans will be amused by this diversion while they await the completion of her next novel.
This sampler contains many of Laura’s previously published short fiction including:
17 Things You Never Knew About Val Capone
Murder in the Key of E
Of Cocks and Existentialism
Metro Area Weather
Montreal in 7 Pieces
Halifax in a Sentence
PLUS an excerpt from her serial novel, Naked Montreal!
