Paris… City of lights, City of love
French Kissing follows a group of Parisian women as they navigate the stormy waters of love and life.
Claire and Juliette have been best friends for twenty years. Together they own a successful PR agency, but their journey to success has come at a price. Juliette and her partner Nadia have drifted apart after ten years together while Claire hasn’t been on a real date for as long as she can remember. Meanwhile, their happily single employee Steph is getting a bit too close to a new, high-profile client.
Warning: This title contains sensual language, ladies making love and possibly more feelings than you can process.
And… if you haven’t had the chance to get started on French Kissing yet, you can now try Episode One completely FREE!
To celebrate the release of French Kissing: Season One we’re also giving away two signed copies of the paperback via Goodreads. Click the button below to win!
Summer is around the corner, and with that, hopefully for most of you, some well-deserved holidays. But before you fly off to the sun or the mountains or a historic city (or just stay at home and relax), why not relish those last weeks at work with some burning hot tales of ladies loving ladies on the work floor?
Here’s the blurb
If the characters in Bossy prove anything, it’s that getting it on at work doesn’t mean you need to wipe all papers off the surface and get busy on your desk. The settings in this new mini-anthology from Ladylit are as diverse as the positions the ladies in these five stories find themselves in. A doctor finds comfort with a nurse in Cheyenne Blue’s romantic tale of love in the ultrasound room, while Laila Blake’s story shows a professor who can’t resist one of her students on a sweltering hot day in the classroom. Add a maid whose mistress demands full servitude, a sexy mechanic offering roadside assistance and an A-list actress who has trouble hiding her secrets from a Hollywood reporter… and you get Bossy: five productive tales of lesbian lust.
Caution: This title contains graphic language and bossy f/f sex and is suitable for adults only.

In Episode Two of French Kissing some things are not what they seem, secrets come out and new players emerge, causing more trouble and drama for the ladies of Barbier & Cyr and their loved ones.
Warning: This title contains sensual language, ladies making love, escalating lesbo drama and even more cliffhangers.

Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire
Editor: Cheyenne Blue
Deadline: 15 May 2014
Payment: US$40.00 plus 1 copy of e-book and paperback
Rights: First worldwide digital rights and print rights.
Forbidden Fruit. She’s off limits but the attraction burns so bright it’s impossible to resist.
Cheyenne Blue is seeking stories of lesbian passion on this theme. Think teacher and student. A best friend’s ex—or current—lover. A monogamous couple tempted by a threesome. A traveler leaving on the next plane. A much younger—or older—woman. A straight woman. The bad girl heartbreaker. The attraction between characters should scorch the pages and sexual tension is as important as the actual sex. As for the sex, think hot and desperate. Think once-to-get-it-out-of-our-system sex. Or this-really-is-the-last-time sex.
Please note the usual no-nos still apply: no incest / underage sex / rape / necrophilia / bestiality / scat. No poetry please.
Preferred length: 2500 – 5000 words
Unpublished stories strongly preferred, although a couple of reprints might be used. Reprints must be solely owned by the author.
US English. Please submit a double-spaced Microsoft Word document, using a 12-point serif font, such as Georgia or Times New Roman. One inch margins. If using a pen name, include both real and pen name on the manuscript.
Send your story as a .doc or .rtf file attachment to Cheyenne Blue at email@example.com. Please include Forbidden Fruit and your story title in the subject line.
In the body of the email please include your legal name, pseudonym, a short bio, and previous publication information if the story is a reprint.
Established authors welcomed, newcomers encouraged. I look forward to reading your work.
All submissions acknowledged within 3 days and acceptances notified by 15 June 2014.
About the editor: Cheyenne Blue’s erotic fiction has been included in over 90 erotic anthologies since 2000. Under her own name she has written travel books and articles, and edited anthologies of local writing in Ireland.
Just in time for the holidays, we’re very proud to release Harper Bliss’ emotional novella Summer’s End. Harper says it’s very much a romance at heart, with plenty of naughty bits to keep you sufficiently moisturised on a cold winter’s day.
Here’s the blurb:
Can love be so instant it changes everything?
After losing the woman she loves, Marianne has chosen to live in exile on a tropical Thai island. At first glance, Emily Kane is just another guest passing through the small B&B she runs, but Emily has demons of her own and, together, they just might find a way to live again.
We wish you happy holidays and a hot new year!
Christmas is just around the corner and, maybe you’ve already done all your shopping and have time to indulge in some hot, lesbian erotica reading, or, maybe you’re just looking for another reason to procrastinate and curl up in the sofa with your eReader… either way, our new mini-anthology A Christmas to Remember can meet many needs.
After Sweat, Harper Bliss has once again teamed up with her favourite F/F erotica authors to compile a sizzling hot and seasonal mini-anthology.
Here’s the blurb:
From the obligatory office party to a cabin in the woods, Christmas celebrations come in all shapes and sizes. The ladies in this Christmas anthology like to keep it original though, and get their festive groove on in bed shops and the Australian outback, not to mention the ‘Mermaids and Mistletoe Masquerade Ball’… A Christmas to Remember contains five lesbian erotica stories that will make your Christmas merry AND hot.
Caution: This title contains graphic language and festive lesbian sex and is suitable for adults only.
We wish you all happy holidays and a great new year. We have one more Harper Bliss title scheduled for release in 2013 and some very exciting projects planned for 2014!
P.S. When you purchase a Ladylit paperback on Amazon you now get the e-book for free! We currently have 3 titles out in paperback: High Rise (The Complete Collection) by Harper Bliss, Can’t Get Enough by Harper Bliss and Come and Go by Lee Harlem Robinson. Great for Christmas presents: give the paperback, keep the e-book!
We have bundled ten Harper Bliss stories into a rather hot collection. Perfect to brave stormy nights and rainy days with, we think.
Here’s the blurb
This scorching hot collection bundles ten lesbian erotica short stories from Harper Bliss. The settings vary from bars to gyms and the characters range from tennis players to cut throat lawyers, but, as always, all these tales feature… Girls Only.
Caution: This title contains graphic language and all sorts of lesbian sex and is suitable for adults only.

Here’s the blurb:
Successful news anchor Elise returns to her hometown after running away from a love she couldn’t understand nor act upon twenty years ago. When she bumps into her old best friend Amy, the one she had to get away from, all that was left unspoken bubbles to the surface and they revisit the past in more ways than one.
Both Beatrice Donahue’s beautiful debut novelette The Blue Hour and Harper Bliss’ lesbian erotica anthology Anything She Wants are now available from all e-book retailers. Here’s a handy list with the appropriate links.
The Blue Hour
In a drowsy English village at the dawn of the 1920s, Rosina King sleepwalks through her unhappy life—until one deep blue evening, when she is finally woken by a kiss.
American painter Eve Soames is the embodiment of a thoroughly modern woman: fearless, financially independent, and strong-willed. When Eve bursts into her life, Rosina finds herself mesmerised, and also unsettled by what she senses Eve might teach her.
Anything She Wants
In the office, on the set of a movie or on the bathroom floor, the ladies in this anthology don’t care where they get it on. Power play, first time encounters and office rivalry get the characters in these twelve stories so riled up, the only way to go is down and dirty. Tales of spanking, a wild all-female college party and a waitress with a strap-on grace the pages of Ladylit’s first multi-author lesbian erotica anthology.
Caution: Reading ‘Anything She Wants’ will make you wet!
