Booked: A BDSM Romance

A novelist. A librarian. Detective Roleplay. Psychological kink.
Nate Fuller looks like a typical artist: Part-time novelist, part-time bartender, and dedicated volunteer at the public library. But beneath the surface, Nate keeps many secrets. Nerve damage has left him without feeling in most of his body. He has a thing for being tied up. And the interlibrary loan librarian Charlotte is his BDSM Domme.  

Between his body and his kinks, Nate has always had a difficult time with romance. But when he meets the new assistant library director James Albright, things in that department quickly heat up.

Unfortunately, James has never been exposed to BDSM beyond the erotica section and Nate has always been more comfortable lying about his body and his sexuality. But James has a secret of his own and clues begin to appear behind the detective crime novels he reads every night.   

Armed with handcuffs and a thrill for the chase, Nate sets out to uncover their dream power dynamic – and true love. 

HEA. Standalone. M/M romance/erotic pairing and M/F kink pairing. Bisexual main male character.

Cast From the Earth

Old West. Polyamorous Romance. Zombies. Need I say more?

An epidemic that turns men into monsters has seized the nation. At first the disease only spreads in cities but soon cannibals are roaming the prairie, threatening the quiet little towns of the late 19th Century heartland.

At an isolated poor farm in rural America, Sara Warren has survived a tumultuous life of loss and an accident that leaves her with one leg – but she is hopeless of any other future until a woman named Cordelia arrives at the farm and changes Sara's life forever.

Along with Dan, a man who can't hear and Grace, a young woman who is more concerned with her sewing needles than people, they face the oncoming apocalypse with their wits and their bare hands. When it seems like all is lost, a man from Sara's past named Jack returns to her life and they all realize the only way to survive is together.

A story of romance, violence, sex, and the wild prairie that proves broken bodies still feel pleasure and broken souls can find love – even at the end of the world.

Non-Fiction Titles

Let’s talk about the erotic imagination. What’s in yours? A fetish? A secret sexual fantasy? Do romance novels, erotic stories, or pornography spark your inner desires? Do you cut out wild and wonderful pieces from your life and the media you consume to sew together your own delicious bed time stories?

I do. And I’m ready to open up the conversation about fetishes, sexual fantasies, and erotic media.
Do I spend too much time fantasizing? How do I tell my partner? How do I incorporate pornography, erotica, or other media into my life? What happens when I feel guilty about the things that make me orgasm? What if certain words or objects in my everyday environment turn me on?
These are all questions I lived with for far too long, my secrets kept locked away in the dark. Now I invite you inside my erotic mind to answer these questions and tackle these challenges with honesty and compassion.
Just know, we’re in this together. An erotic mind is a terrible thing to waste. So shake out the keys to your own fantasies and click open the lock.
Let’s see what’s inside.

Trophy Wife: Sexuality. Disability. Femininity. A sexuality memoir by Leandra Vane

Hello there, I am Leandra Vane. I write a sexuality and book review blog called The Unlaced Librarian. I read a lot of books about sex, so I figured it’s about time I wrote one. My entire life I have been working to understand three core aspects of my identity: My sexuality, my visible physical disability and my femininity. For the longest time, I never thought I’d be able to live in a world that accepted all three without reprisal. Part memoir, part commentary on social issues in sex and disability, I write about my experiences growing from a timid, small town “nice girl” to an empowered, confidently sexual and kinky disabled woman. From my first pair of sexy panties through navigating my open marriage, I hope to shed light on how embodied experiences play a role in shaping our sexual lives. Add in a dash of porn, a splash of erotica, and a few musings on marriage, I present to you Trophy Wife: Sexuality. Disability. Femininity. Join me, won’t you?

Excerpts from "Cast From the Earth" a polyamorous romance

I had so much fun sharing inspiration photos and excerpts from my novel Booked that I wanted to do one for Cast From the Earth, my polyamorous romance with zombies set in the 1890's. This book features a F/F and M/M/F pairing and lots of fighting... for love ;) Check out some snippets below!


Dust billowed up as the wagon ambled down a worn dirt road reserved for indigents and invalids. Curled in the back of the wagon clutching her satchel, Cordelia was certain she was neither. She had been offering a perfectly legitimate trade on that street corner back in town. Yet someone still turned her in for begging in public.

Cordelia found herself with no means to pay for a room at the boardinghouse and not a single establishment in White Spring would let her wash dishes or sweep floors for even one day.

Without any further discussion, Cordelia was shoved into the back of a wagon to be hauled off to the Clay County poor farm.

There had been a brief exchange in which the man entrusted with…

Ways Porn Has Helped My Life

Earlier this week @KelseyObsession on Twittier ( posted a poll asking if porn has helped people’s lives, hurt people’s lives, or been a neutral force. I answered that porn has helped my life... because it has!
I see the sentence “porn ruined my life” so often but I can honestly say that in many ways porn saved my life. (It’s a bit too click baity even for me to use as a headline, but it doesn’t make it any less true). On top of that, there has been another anti-porn wave on social media lately, so I thought I would go ahead and dedicate a post to the ways porn has helped my life.
First things first. When I write about porn, I usually get a lot of the same questions so I’ll just preface by answering those questions now: 1. No, I don’t work in the adult industry. Aside from one erotica story I wrote being published in an alternative porn magazine and a few erotic photoshoots that have never been published except as cropped header images for my blog posts, I’ve never be…

Happy Masturbation Month 2018!

It's MASTURBATION MONTH, lovely readers. I'm so very excited because masturbation is one of my most cherished sexual outlets. Unfortunately, I didn't always have such a good relationship with masturbation. I saw it as something shameful, as something "less" than other sexual outlets, and the subjects of my sexual fantasies often left me confused or once again, ashamed.

Examining sexual fantasy, learning about my body, and understanding more about how erotic media is produced were all processes I had to work through to have a better sex life and to enjoy all my sexual outlets. Which is why I still work to promote great non-fiction sexuality books and sex-ed resources as much as I can.

But for today, I want to offer some further reading for masturbation specifically.

As a person who can think myself off, I rely on sexual fantasy and erotic media like erotica and porn to masturbate and own relatively few sex toys. But that's all right! Part of my message about …
