100 Happy Naked NYCers

100 HAPPY NAKED NEW YORKERS by Kiana Tower is available for purchase through Amazon.com

100 Happy Naked New Yorkers is an insider's view of the New York City social scene. Why is sex, and dating, better on the East Coast? In what ways did 9/11 change lives for the better? In a city of small apartments and multiple roommates, what are the most unusual places people are having sex in New York? In May and June of 2002, author Kiana Tower polled over 100 New Yorkers on the intimate details of their social lives. The survey revealed surprising results. Ten months after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, many New Yorkers are reporting that their lives have changed for the better, particularly their sex lives. And New Yorkers show an amazing creativity and appetite for variety when it comes to choosing unusual places to have sex. 100 Happy Naked New Yorkers also contains bonus materials at the end, with a generous sample of the author's other book: Sex in Silicon Valley - the geeks of the Valley are getting more than you'd think.

INTERCOURSES: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook by Martha Hopkins, Randall Lockridge is available for purchase through Amazon.com

Forget Spanish fly or powdered rhino horn; if you want to get your lover in the mood, look no farther than your local supermarket. Strawberries, chocolate, asparagus--even coffee--have long been considered stimulants for the romantic appetite. For centuries, folk wisdom held that foods either rare or resembling a sexual organ had tremendous power over the libido. Modern science has since debunked that theory, but there's no denying that a meal lovingly prepared and properly presented with just the right ambience can precipitate the most passionate encounters. In Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook, Martha Hopkins and Randall Lockridge appeal to all the senses as they offer up 85 heart-melting, temperature-raising dishes, along with an array of sensuous photographs that will make you look at food in a whole new light.

The book is divided into 17 sections, each one devoted to a particular food with aphrodisiac qualities, from chocolate and chilies to black beans and oysters. Following these are recipes for massage oils, seasonal dishes, and meals to appeal to every astrological sign and every stage of a relationship, from first date to golden anniversary. There's even a list of resources on subjects ranging from further reading on aphrodisiacs to locating aromatherapy candles. Just reading Intercourses is a sensual experience--imagine what eating from it will be! Read a review of InterCourses by JZ Sharpe!

Beyond Seduction

BEYOND SEDUCTION by Emma Holly is available for purchase through Amazon.com

To avoid marriage, Merry Vance has concocted a sinfully scandalous scheme: to pose for Nicolas Craven, London's most sought-after artist. No man in his right mind would marry a woman who posed nude for this notorious rogue. But Nicolas has his own plans for the fiesty young woman. And Merry has no idea how hot it can get in an artist's studio.

kahtt's Review: Emma Holly's latest book, Beyond Seduction, is the second in a series - I hope. Ms. Holly's unique mix of intense sensuality, well crafted characters and romantic plot makes Beyond Seduction a must read.

Set in the late 1800s England, a union between a sinfully notorious artist and a Duke's daughter would be scandalous! But this is the perfect setting for Ms. Holly to weave her tale. Nicolas Craven and Merry Vance don't just seduce us, they let us into their intimate lives and share with us all the sorrows and ultimate joys on their journey to happiness. The supporting characters -- Evangeline, Sebastian, Lavinia Vance and Althorp do their jobs well and are just as interesting to "watch." In fact I would love to see my favorite supporting character, Ernest, in his own novel ...

As in past novels, Ms. Holly allows the reader to experience each thought, each sensation and each emotion of the characters. Read this one when you have time because you won't want to put it down.

ebtnThe Hardest Ride of All by E.Y. Cain
ebtnMidnight Ride by E.Y. Cain

Like name of the site, I'm erratic, neurotic and erotic. I like writing smut
for a living, not that I'm making much more than a pittance, but it satisfies
my inner woman. I'm 42, married for 17 years, owned by two neutered male
cats, both of whom consider me to be a fine mattress and wonderful scratching
machine, and a bit on the scattered side, especially when I'm writing ...
