Janine Ashbless is an award winning, multi-published author of erotica and - occasionally - erotic romance. Her first book was published in 2000 and she's written many novels since. She's always used elements of fantasy, mythology and folklore in her writing, with occasional forays into horror. Janine loves goatee beards, ancient ruins, minotaurs, trees, mummies, having her cake and eating it, and vacationing in countries with really bad public sewerage. She's a role-playing geek who can sometimes be found running around in the woods hitting other geeks with a rubber sword. It is unlikely she will grow up anytime soon.
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.
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.
