When Persephone was born, Zeus received a troubling prophecy. Some day his beautiful innocent daughter would be taken captive by Hades, the dark god of the underworld. Determined to protect her, her father hid her away in the human world where she would be shielded from her fate.


Hades learned of this betrayal nine centuries ago. He’s been searching for his destined queen ever since. And when he finds her, no power on earth or below it will stop him. He will take her. He will corrupt her. And Zeus will suffer for daring to keep her from him.

About the author

 KITTY THOMAS writes dark literary fiction that explores dominance and submission. Not really classed as romance, though some readers see it that way. It's a case of your mileage may vary. Romance genre conventions and rules not usually followed but some books could easily be classed as romantic suspense such as Mafia Captive or Tender Mercies.

Mina Calloway always finds herself in the hands of the wrong master: Gentle at first, then brutally sadistic and abusive. She no longer believes it’s possible to find a man who will be gentle with her. After seeing a kink-friendly therapist for months, the doctor makes her an illicit offer she isn’t yet smart enough to refuse: “Let me find you a good master.”

Brian Sloan is a borderline sociopath with a dark and brutal past. Only taking his sadistic urges out on the women at a submissive training house allows him to sleep through the night. When Brian sees Mina, she should be ripe for the picking, but her damage is too similar to his own. Can he fight past his demons to protect the one person he considers worth saving?

What Readers are Saying About Guilty Pleasures:

"5 stars all the way. I love how kitty writes. no shame. it's everything I didn't know I wanted." - Drew P.


"Such a sexy submissive story. I love Vivian and all the many characters that are thrown into her life. Sequel please, would definitely love more about these characters!"  - Kenzie


"I read "Comfort Food" and wanted to read more from the author ... "Dark eroticia" is so much more exciting than the "50 Shades" type story lines!

With this book and Comfort Food, I questioned if I could handle reading about the things the character's were subjected to but that wasn't an issue, I was captivated.

When about one quarter through the book, I thought it's not going to be as good as "Comfort Food" but that definitely wasn't the case ... It's a hot book and I loved it!"  - Megan

"This book is definitely not for the faint of heart. Very intense BDSM but if you have a depraved mind like me, you'll love it!" -AsianCocoa

"Kitty Thomas is an incredibly talented erotica writer and storyteller, and she really turned up the heat and the kink in her latest release. Guilty Pleasures is a very erotic and twisted tale that sucks the reader in from the first paragraph. Ultimately, it is a look at one woman's sexual awakening and the drastic steps she must take to arrive there. She must question what is the worse existence, a lifetime of dull, passionless sex in her husband's bed or being "forced" to experience orgasmic kinky sex with strangers. I am so very pleased with the book's ending. Perfect! Highly recommended to those who like darker, BDSM erotica" - Book of Secrets

"Guilty Pleasures is a lovely and sweet BDSM story about how a bored, rich and sexually shut-down wife gets her game back. " - Sheri Johnson


"In Guilty Pleasures, Kitty Thomas' second novel, she has once again produced a wickedly arousing tale of nonconsensual submission that turned me on, satisfied me and left me wanting for more." -Zelda Gillian
