Have a Bite

Have a Bite

The world of vampires is, by nature, one of darkness, secrecy, and covertness. Vampires are invincible. No one can hurt them. Except vampire hunters. Delphine Bouchard is a celebrity chef and owner of a world-renowned restaurant in Brooklyn, NY, where the chic and elite crowd mingle with neighborhood denizens. She enjoys fame, money, and women, and lives life by her own rules. She also happens to be a vampire. Del’s life and the local vampire community are rocked when a vampire hunter begins picking them off, and Del has reason to believe that she might be next. Del is also being watched and criticized by the vampire hive council and persecuted by a coven of witches, who are the enforcers of behavior for the supernatural set. In the midst of all this turmoil, Del meets and unexpectedly falls hard for Jocelyn, who she soon discovers is holding back a disturbing secret. Del must decide whether or not to put aside her feelings of betrayal and pursue the relationship. Meanwhile, when a food critic with a grudge sets out to ruin her business and reputation, Del has to protect her staff and restaurant. But the situation spirals out of control when a human shows up dead, her restaurant is sabotaged, and Jocelyn is threatened. Del must save her business, protect her loved ones, and find out who the vampire killer is before she is the next victim. Set against a backdrop of elaborate meals and passionate cooking, Have a Bite is book one in the novella series The Vampires of Brooklyn Chronicles. The world of vampires and hunters meets the world of restaurants, foodies, and celebrity chefs—a recipe for paranormal mystery seasoned with suspense, peppered with romance, and flavored with a dash of humor.

“From the Halls of Montezuma”

Available from Cleis Press

Sexy, surprising and unforgettably erotic fiction.BLE book_image

For more than a decade, the Best Lesbian Erotica series has published the highest quality, most intelligent and provocative erotica of each year. New series editor Kathleen Warnock now takes her turn tending this “strong, fertile garden of delights.”

Best Lesbian Erotica 2010 travels around the world of lesbian sex with deliriously explicit stories that push desire to new heights. In Sophia Valenti’s “Sweet Tooth,” a deliciously dominant femme serves up far more than cupcakes at her bakery. Stella Sandberg recounts the reckless lust of two butch bikers in a Spanish churchyard in “Girona, 1960.” Natt Nightly’s “Ridden” seduces with the hot power play between a photographer and muse. Selected and introduced by the world’s hottest lesbian band, BETTY, Best Lesbian Erotica 2010 offers a collection of arousing and sensually lyrical fiction.

Lesbian Cops: Erotic Investigations

“Cop at My Door”

Available from Cleis Press.

What is it about lesbian cops that pushes all the right buttons? It’s not just the uniform, with handcuffs and weapons, or the confidence, authority, and sense of danger. There’s something more as well, an irresistible force that these writers have channeled into fiercely erotic stories of policewomen in or out of uniform, on patrol or undercover, in charge or in need of healing, on the case or under the sheets.

The action can be gut-level tough, as in Jove Belle’s ”Hollis” where anti-terrorism boot camp surges over the inevitable edge into BDSM, or heart-wrenching as in Evan Mora’s “A Cop’s Wife” when death threats sharpen the need for life-affirming sex to a keen edge, or quirky as well as steamy while Teresa Noelle Roberts’s cop finds a way to maintain respect for her own “Dress Uniform” while indulging her anime-girl lover’s cos-play kink. Delilah Devlin, Andrea Dale, R. G. Emanuelle, Cheyenne Blue, and all the other contributors offer their own sizzling visions of the complexity and depth, the strength and vulnerability, and above all the commanding, overwhelming sex appeal of Lesbian Cops.

Lust: It’s the engine that drives us wild on the way to getting us off, and lesbian lust is the heart, soul and red-hot core of this anthology. — Sacchi Green, from the Introduction

For readers who crave stories of uninhibited, unrepentant sex between women, Lesbian Lust delivers. No fantasy is left unfulfilled: butches prowl the night, baby dykes learn important life lessons, femmes bring each other to the brink. In “The Office Grind” by R.G. Emanuelle, a stressed-out businesswoman loses herself and her heart in the startling green eyes of a sleek butch in a bar. C.B. Potts’s “The Angel Connection” takes age and power differentials and turns them upside down in an all-girl repair shop. Compiled by Lambda Literary Award-winning editor Sacchi Green, the relentless, raw stories of Lesbian Lust are the ultimate in eroticism.

Choices by our protagonists and their subsequent effects are the re-occurring theme in this month’s stories. Although, our cover picture isn’t really a choice but a plastic-in-an-oven oops, we chose to create something positive out of it. How did they handle their challenges? “The Gift” by Elaine Burnes depicts the panic of getting the right gift for a loved one when your shop-ping skills are questionable. Does time heal all wounds? Or are some too deep to f x? Find out in R. G. Emanuelle’s heart/gut wrenching tale, “A Light for Revelation.” If walls could talk, “Wet Paint” by V. Jo Hsu examines a retrospective look at long-time partners and their changing future. Exploring a new outlook on life with a teenager in the house can be very challenging. Just ask Mary in “Spring Fever” by Jean Roberta.
