Prepare to devour ‘Red Grow the Roses’, an explicit vampire erotica novel with plenty of bite.
There are six vampires in the city. Ageless, terrifyingly beautiful and always hungry – not just for blood but for the other pleasures the human body offers.
Sadistic chanteuse Estelle; feckless Ben; Roisin, the mirror-ghost; Wakefield, haunted by his own damnation; Naylor, the most feral of them all. And Reynauld is the Good Shepherd, the one who holds them all in check.
But his grip on his own humanity is fading, and when Wakefield accidentally kills a woman and Naylor gets the blame, a power-struggle erupts between the city’s immortal undead.
Two lovers, brought together by a forbidden passion, are on the run from their pasts. Veraine was once a commander in the Imperial army: Myrna was the divine priestess he seduced and stole from her desert temple. But travelling through a jungle kingdom, they fall prey to slavers and are separated. Veraine is left for dead. Myrna is taken as a slave to the city of the Tiger Lords; inhuman tyrants with a taste for human flesh. There she must learn the tricks of survival in a cruel and exotic court where erotic desire is not the only animal passion.
Myrna still has faith that Veraine will find her. But Veraine, badly injured, has forgotten everything: his past, his lover, even his own identity. As he undertakes a journey through a fevered landscape of lush promise and supernatural danger, he knows only one thing - that he must somehow find the unknown woman who holds the key to his soul.
In the ancient temple city of Mulhanabin, the voluptuous Malia Shai awaits her destiny. Millions of people worship her, believing her to be a goddess incarnate. She is, however, very human and consumed by erotic passions that have no outlet.
Into this sacred city comes General Verlaine - the rugged gladiatorial leader of the occupying army. Intimate contact between Veraine and Malia Shai is forbidden by every law of their hostile peoples. But she is the only thing he wants - and he will risk everything to have her.
Bear Skin: Hazel is whisked away from her tedious job and humdrum life by the mysterious Arailt, to be his lover 'for a year and a day, without reason and without question.' The only problem is there is more to Arailt than meets the eye - much more!
The Three Riddles: The elves, they say, know the secrets of events - but the queen has no time for superstitions. Ignoring the warnings, she deserts her childhood love, Sir Thomas, for a darkly charismatic foreign duke. As her kingdom crumbles, she longs for her lost love, but can she risk her country on a whim?
The People in the Garden: The beguiling Katia seems to be everything the Count and Countess Malinovsky could ever hope for in a maid and the decadent couple soon embroil the young women in their erotic games. But then strange things begin happening in the grounds of their Gothic manor house. Local people tell of fairies, goblins and unnamable creatures, and there are stories about a girl with an uncanny resemblance to Katia, who disappeared almost a hundred years before.
