Ever fantasize about a Viking? (Contest)

Ever fantasize about a Viking? (Contest)

Conquests has been out for a while. It was the first of my self-edited and self-published anthologies. It was followed by Rogues, which will be followed by Blue Collar in June! I love short stories, and I love it even better when friends join me to complete a theme-based anthology, because it’s fun to see where our minds go! I worried that narrowing the theme of Conquests to only Viking stories would make the adventures very similar, but the authors…

Today was supposed to be about a brand new release. Here’s the cover… My publisher says it’s a glitch, and that the book should be live soon, but we’ll see.

You’ll find great authors, scorching hot, inventive stories—pretty much everything you’d want in a short story collection!          Contest…

CONQUESTS is here!

CONQUESTS is here!

This anthology was a pure labor of love. I adore Vikings. Read the introduction I wrote for the book below, and you’ll know why. Congratulations to all the contributing authors! Thanks for trusting me with your stories! Readers, I hope you enjoy it. There’s variety in settings and characters—despite the fact every story has a Viking hero! I think you’ll be surprised! And if you have time after reading it, we’d really appreciate your taking the time to review it…

A(r)morous men, aka You’ve got (chain)mail

A(r)morous men, aka You’ve got (chain)mail

Why not both? (Source) Ok, first off – fair warning. This post is going to have some hot (mostly clothed) men in it. I’m not responsible for any damage – ie, spontaneous combustion – that occurs to your screen or your knickers while you’re reading this post! So, now that the disclaimers are out of the way, let’s get down to brass tacks. What is it about a man in armour that makes a maiden’s heart go pitter-pat? Is it…

Keeping Sex Between the Covers

Keeping Sex Between the Covers

It’s June 14th and in the United States we’re celebrating Flag Day! I have a special promotion for June (Flag Day month) and July (Independence Day month). See the end of this post! I generally write historical erotic romance, although I have also written contemporary, mythological, and Steampunk. But my comfort zone is historicals because I’m a historian and, I suppose, I’ve internally fetishized history to a certain extent. I’ve written stories that take place in ancient Roman and Victorian…

Write What You Know: Paranormal Edition

Write What You Know: Paranormal Edition

Beginning writers are often advised to “write what you know,” that way words and stories and emotions will resound authentically. The general public has glommed on to this aphorism and often conflates “write what you know” with “write your actual lived experience”. Erotica and erotic romance writers especially fall victim to this definition. We get a lot of “heh, heh” “snicker, snicker” at parties and such, because of course we’ve all done every blessed thing our characters have done. Sigh….

Better Sex in 50 Years?

Better Sex in 50 Years?

Hello to you on this wonderful Friday! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Liz Ashworth. I write scandalous stories. I occasionally write something that’s not scandalous but who cares? About twenty years ago, I had this idea for a story. At the time, my life centered around raising children and keeping up with my job. My idea? I wanted to create a world where women could buy sex. Go to a safe place, nice opulent surroundings, review the lineup, and…

Sabrina York Sparks a Five Alarm Fire!

Sabrina York Sparks a Five Alarm Fire!

I am so excited about Five Alarm Fire, my contribution to the High Octane Heroes Anthology. In my opinion, there’s nothing hotter than a man who wants you for exactly who you are. Unless, of course, he is a sexy fireman…and wants you for exactly who you are. In my short story, Trish is a little shy around men. She’s convinced no one really hot would ever want her. But when Luke gets a look at her generous curves and…

Bringing it, with Sidney Bristol

Bringing it, with Sidney Bristol

Hello hunky hot hero fans! Anyone else excited about the upcoming anthology?? I am! When I heard the call for a “high octane hero” I thought of the kind of person who could save the day—even with one arm tied behind his back. That was where I started, but not where the story ends. Once Upon a Time in Mukdahan touches on the time I spent living in Thailand and my personal visit to Mukdahan, which is a large city on…
