I’m delighted to have my dear friend, and fellow smut penner, Lily Harlem with me today-and boy has she had a busy few months!! Over to you Lily…
Thanks so much for inviting me over today, Kay. I’m enjoying taking a breath and relaxing as I’ve been rushed off my feet of late with two new releases before Christmas and three out over the last few weeks. Not only that, I’ve had stories included in various anthologies and have my work cut out in 2013 with a whole host of exciting new projects. Keep reading to find out all my juicy gossip.
In December the fourth book in my popular HOT ICE series, TEAMWORK, was published at Ellora’s Cave. (This erotic romance novel is fine as a stand-alone read or can be enjoyed as part of the Viper’s on-going story.) TEAMWORK is the ménage a trois novel of the five books, featuring two hot hockey players and one very lucky physiotherapist from Wales!
Blurb – What I know about hockey could fit on the back of a stamp. So my latest patient may be one of the NHL’s hottest defensemen, but I’m not exactly blown away by his stardom. Add in the fact that he’s a surly, growling grump, and I’m more than happy to work my magic on his battered body then hot-foot to my date with his teammate, Todd “Pretty” Carty.
Todd is sex on a stick, a slice of man heaven, and I want a bit of the action, preferably of the bedroom variety. But when Raven emerges from his bad mood and throws his energy into blowing my mind with just one kiss, I find my head spinning and my libido raging.
What I didn’t bargain on is these hard-training, hard-playing hockey players working as efficiently off the ice as on when it comes to getting results. But who am I to complain when satisfaction is their ultimate goal?

Link to Anything For Him -http://www.mischiefbooks.com/books/anything-him/
Just in time for Christmas stockings, came ANYTHING FOR HIM http://www.mischiefbooks.com/books/anything-him/ an erotic novella published by Mischief at Harper Collins. This co-authored e-book written with Natalie Dae is dark and gritty and explores just how far one woman will go for the man she loves. It’s a rollercoaster ride of lust, dirty desires and some seriously hot sex scenes. Probably not for the faint of heart!
Blurb- I prefer to chase the news, not be the news. But when the delectable Liuz, with his uncannily accurate perception of my secret desires weaved his way into my life, it wasn’t long before I was in way too deep, submerged and intoxicated with a passion I was afraid was more than I could handle.
Or was it? Because although my heart was overwhelmed with feelings I had no resistance against, and while my deceitful body was consumed by a burning passion, I still had a plan. A plan I prayed would keep me afloat as I was pushed to the very edge of my limits, while the journey got tougher than even my wildest flights of fantasy could have imagined.
I claimed him and I felt that he was rightfully mine. My heart simply couldn’t beat without a permanent connection between our hearts, minds and bodies. Losing was not an option, not when my sanity depended on winning him.
Because I would, quite literally, do anything for him.

Just out is another novella from Mischief, CONFESSIONS OF A NAUGHTY NIGHT NURSE. Drawing on real-life experiences from my time as a trauma nurse in London and adding a healthy dose of imagination into the mix, this story follows Staff Nurse Sharon Roane as she spends her nights doing good whilst being bad in the shadowy cupboards, corners and forgotten rooms of a Yorkshire hospital.
Blurb- When scalpels are set down, the ward lights turned off and the patients asleep, there is always time for Mischief …
I guess you could call me a jack-of-all-trades nurse. I find work satisfaction in whichever department the hospital needs me most, as long as it’s through the darkest hours. Needless to say I’ve seen it all over the years, been there and done that, what’s left to shock me isn’t worth knowing. But it’s so often the quieter nighttime where the real high jinx abound.
Yes, the nocturnal life is the one for me. With a weakness for sexy guys wearing white coats and dangling stethoscopes, my fantasies are often realised and I’m adept at finding relief from the hospital grind in shadowy corners and cozy linen cupboards.
Of course my dedication to patient comfort is paramount. What kind of nurse would I be if it wasn’t? But when one act of extreme, albeit highly inappropriate, kindness forced me to become the hospital director’s snitch, the length I went to in order to keep my job, satisfied my desires and found me the love that had always evaded me. A love that made me push even my not-so-professional boundaries to the extreme.
Link to DANGEROUS TO KNOW http://www.ellorascave.com/dangerous-to-know.html
February has seen two releases so far, the first is DANGEROUS TO KNOW http://www.ellorascave.com/dangerous-to-know.html This novella isn’t my usual kind of erotic romance story, in fact there’s no romance in it at all, that’s why it’s in the Exotika line at Ellora’s Cave. DANGEROUS TO KNOW is seedy and dirty and is about New Yorker Karen realizing a dangerous whore fantasy with a man she really should have stayed well away from.
Blurb- For too many years I’ve hidden a sinful, erotic craving in the darkest corner of my soul. Within this deeply buried sliver, shameful fantasies rule and images—seedy, degrading, filthy images—burn through the dark of the night and hold my dreams hostage.
Luckily, the center of my whore obsession is keen to play my slutty game. I know nothing about him, other than his taste, touch and smell, but that’s how I want it, because the one thing I’m certain of is this man is dangerous to know. But despite the risks, in the very heart of New York, in open view, I’ll tempt him with my wares, show him my skills and prove I’m up for the job.
Available from Ellora’s Cave http://www.ellorascave.com/dangerous-to-know.html and all good ebook retailers.

This is only one of several classics brought to life by various Total-E-Bound authors and inserts the sexiness that readers previously had to use their imagination for.

Blurb – A wild man with primitive desires, will anyone be able to tame him?
A handsome English aristocrat raised in the jungle by apes, self-sufficient, thriving on danger and with a head full of unanswered questions. Where is he from? Why is he different? What will satisfy the hunger that eats away at the very core of his being and finally feed his appetite for something other than food and shelter?
A delicate American woman, expected to be the best she can be and marry well, but with a craving for adventure and exploration as well as a hope in her heart to find true love with a man who can sweep her off her feet.
When the two very different souls collide, in deepest, darkest Africa, only one thing can happen, and it’s raw and feral. Lust a common language, satisfaction the ultimate goal. But will the gentleman outshine the savage-man? Is virtue to be honoured? And when faced with a civilised decision, can Tarzan do the right thing?
