Let's find out more about Esther Mitchell: Although unpublished until 2004, Esther Mitchell spent her life writing.  She learned to read on such classics as Gawain & the Green Knight and Beowulf.  Raised in Europe, with its wide exposure to mythology, history, and the paranormal, she quickly became fascinated by the lore of the unseen, culminating in a degree in parapsychology.

Life in a fast-paced, on-the-edge military community ingrained her with both an intimate understanding of the military world, and the ability to craft edgy suspense.

At the age of eight, she fell in love with romance, thanks to great authors like Christine Smith, Lindsay McKenna, and Cassie Miles.  By the age of twelve, Esther penned the first of a series of Arthurian romances, and was working on what would later become her very first release, the futuristic suspense series, Underground.

Always dedicated foremost to her writing, she writes under her real name, and has completed about twenty novels to date, of which thirteen have been published, with more to come.  Reviewers and fans alike have dubbed her work “exciting,”  “edge of your seat” and “daring.”

Their Mission was to bring light to the darkest corners of the Earth…They never expected to fall in love.

Critically-acclaimed Romantic Suspense Author Esther Mitchell presents a new face to her paranormal series, Project Prometheus…

Four thousand years ago, the legendary city of Atlantis crumbled into the ocean, taking with it the path to the Temple of the Stars. But four men and one woman were born of the legacy of Atlantis, and gifted with five sacred artifacts made from the magical metal forged only in the sacred Temple. Now, on the edge of a new Millennium, when the powers of the stars are aligning, the men and women of the chosen lines are drawn into the struggle to preserve the world, and reawaken the power of the most ancient of human mysteries.

Join the battle, and discover love’s saving grace.   Find out more about Project Prometheus at

Melissa Glisan says: I've always wanted to write, so I became an engineer. Seriously. My career path has led a merry chase through cook, trail-guide, instructor and security. A true Jill of All Trades! Then I signed on as a news reporter. Now, I no longer report the news - I make it! My work has appeared in Insidious Reflections, Dark Gothic and Twisted Dreams as well as Aspen Mountain Press, Red Rose Publishing, Twilight Fantasies and JustusRoux.

Night Lights is her latest with AMP. Here's the blurb:

On the Philippine Island of Cagayan, she places her trust in the enigmatic warrior Rizal Malihim and his night lights, to keep her safe despite the tales. For in Cagayan, the natives warn, fireflies mask the dreaded berbalangs - ghoulish vampires swarming for victims to kill.

Rob Graham has a new web site where he describes himself:  This is me.
The simplest word to describe me is heretic.
• a person holding an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted.
I do things my own way at my own time. If you tell me something is true, I’ll examine it and come to my own conclusion.

Rob would like us to visit Gillian's Place. Coming soon to AMP:  Come on in and have a drink. Gillian's place is the right place to be to hear some interesting stories of love gone wrong and right.

Melissa Glisan has just released Ware Wishes:

At Satin Knights, nothing is what it seems – including the talent. Songs simmer and clothes are stripped away - as are the club’s secrets. But the roots of deception go deeper and tangle in the lives of Jennifer Taylor and Rayn DeSantis in unexpected ways. Before they can make sense of the situation, an old promise comes due…one that could kill...  

Kara Griffin's latest with AMP is Fishing Lures and Love Tackle, a mortal/goddess romance:

Keely Crystal , Kuku-lau the Goddess of Deception, has always known who her love will be.  Their destiny has been foretold by the Goddess of Earth herself.  But when Keely sets out to meet her intended before their destined time, she unintentionally deceives him. 

Martin Stokes is tired of dealing with deceiving women.  He intends to change the way he deals with them.  But when he meets the enchanting, sexy, woodland nymph, while fishing, he has second thoughts.  The connection he feels for Keely uncovers a love deeper than he’s ever experienced. 

Is his fate as the Goddess’s protector sealed, even though she deceived him?  Martin must forgive her before the Goddess of the Earth sends another protector in his place.  He just can’t let that happen.

Rob Graham's In the Dark is a vampire romance:

Georges Bellveau is a vampire.  With great willpower he controls his urges to feed, keeping his blood lust under control.  When he meets Diane Patterson love enters into his carefully balanced equation.  Can he keep his condition a secret?  And when another other worldly creature threatens to expose him by threatening DIane, will she be able to accept the truth?

Blind Devotion by Lucynda Storey will soon be re-released at Aspen Mountain Press:

When Azari runs from a wild animal, she has no idea her life is about to change irrevocably. Unwittingly, she has awakened two mythical beings intent on possessing her. Escaping to an isolated cabin, Azari meets an unlikely protector, Tor, the High Priest of Eiliki. Together, Azari and Tor face the greatest challenges of their lives – survival. Will Tor’s blind devotion to the Goddess prevent him from accepting the greatest gift he’s ever been given, or will the dogma of his religion and his own past keep him from making the right decision?

The Romance of Erotic Submission – an Interview with Claire Thompson

What Women Read has an Interview with Claire Thompson Claire is a writer hosted at Realms of Love. Her past writing has centered on erotic submission. She is now venturing into the ManLove genre of erotic romance.

Here's a bit of that interview:

What prompted you to consider writing an erotic romance that featured BDSM?
I had always had submissive, masochistic sexual leanings, but I
married very young, without the courage to express my sensual needs to my
partner. My sex life was aided by a rich but very secret fantasy life...

What aspects of BDSM do you like to explore the most through your erotic romances (submission, bondage, or pain giving or receiving)?
Lately my focus is on working through fear—the fear of honestly exploring one’s true nature and fear of falling in love with the risk of loss. A common theme in that regard is coming to terms with one’s submissive nature and then finding the courage to honestly experience it with a loving dominant guide. In my male/male erotic romances I add the overlay of dealing with homosexuality—how it affects and informs the relationship, especially for someone just coming to grips with it.

You can read Claire’s books of manlove and romantic submission at Ellora’s Cave.

Melissa Glisan's Fool’s Gold


What Women Read has the blurb for Melissa Glisan's Fool's Gold recently re-released by Aspen Mountain Press.

Here's the blurb for this novella of erotic romantic suspense:

Jade Savani is trying to made her life work.  That means kicking out the dope dealers and the underage drinkers in her bar, along with keeping an eye out for trouble-makers.

And trouble is just what she gets when Iago de Oro walks through her door.  Hard muscles, easy on the eyes, he might be what her long ignored libido needs.

But Iago is an undercover cop with an agenda all his own.  And if seducing the beautiful Jade is a part of the deal, all the better, as long as he can keep her safe, and tend to business with his objectivity intact.

You can download and read Fool's Gold at Aspen Mountain Press.

Obsession by Claire Thompson at Romantic Observer - Promotion


Obsession by Claire Thompson at Romantic Observer - Promotion

Romantic Observer is offering free posting of romance excerpts and promotion of romance writing .


Claire Thompson took advantage of it to promote her Februaury release of Obsession, a BDSM Romance.

Here's the blurb:


Mark is obsessed with a beautiful movie star, following her career, her life, her every move. He dreams of turning her into his ideal sex slave. He executes a flawlessly planned kidnap, certain she’ll come to love him once she understands how pure and intense his passion is for her.  Not surprisingly, she doesn’t respond as he’d hoped…

In this dark exploration of obsession, we come to understand what compels a man to take his fantasies to such an extreme. Emily, the object of his desire is at first terrified into obedience. Over time, showered with both love and cruel control, she begins a metamorphosis into willing sex slave, or so it would seem. What develops is an intense, if conflicted, BDSM love story. Be prepared to submerge yourself in a dangerous sensual journey of self-discovery on the parts of both the Master and the slave.

Refugee by Lucynda Storey at Romantic Observer - Excerpts


Refugee by Lucynda Storey at Romantic Observer - Excerpts

The Romantic Observer Excerpt site is starting to heat up.

One of our favorite authors of BDSM Romance is Lucynda Storey.  She has written two hot erotic reads in Refugee and Simply Irresistible, both available from Loose-Id.

Here's a taste:


Jack rose from the bed and headed back to the shower. Neither the pounding of the spray against the porcelain, or the steam rising to fog the mirror, managed to blast Amanda from his thoughts. He pulled the curtain and stepped into the hammering, hot water.Letting it sluice over his back, he leaned his head against the rear wall of the shower stall. He couldn’t deny the lust welling within him when he thought of all the blonde hair and soft, sexy curves that was Amanda.

As much as he physically wanted her, her experiences with Victor Wakefield put her off limits to him for an indefinite amount of time. Abused submissives weren’t known for quick recoveries and their lack of trust hindered them in forming another relationship with a decent Dom. A guy like Jack.

“Case, you better wrap this thing up fast,” Jack muttered under his breath stepping out of the shower. The sooner Amanda was out of his house and safekeeping, the better off they both were.

Heat up your night with a love story full of romance with a touch of the whip.
