It seems like only yesterday we were announcing a new novelette by Harper Bliss, and here we are again! Her latest offering steps up the heat somewhat from As Years Go By, but we’re not complaining. It involves professors, a teacher crush, a shared bedroom and trees. All excellent components to accomplish A Higher Education.
Here’s the blurb:
At an economics conference Gail Garvey ends up sharing a room with a teacher she had a crush on twenty years ago. They’re both professors now, and Gail’s crush has long faded, but finding herself in the same room as Professor Joanne Ferguson two nights in a row proves to be more challenging than Gail would like to believe.
If you have been following Ladylit Publishing, the name Laila Blake should be well known to you. This talented lady has been a regular contributor to our themed mini-anthologies (such as Sweat, A Christmas to Remember, Bossy and the soon-to-be-released Cougars), as well as being featured in our other anthologies Forbidden Fruit and Anything She Wants.
Which is why we are very proud to present Girls in Love: Five Stories of Lesbian Love. This mini-anthology brings together for the very first time Laila’s best lesbian erotica from various anthologies.
Here is the blurb for Girls in Love
Childhood friends turn lovers in a snowy cabin, a student seduces her teacher in her own class room, and together two women overcome the prejudice of her family once and for all. These five lesbian erotica stories by Laila Blake are about laughter, kink and above all: about Girls in Love.

About the author
Laila Blake (lailablake.com) is an author, linguist and translator. She writes character- and issue-driven love stories, co-founded the micro-publishing venture Lilt Literary and blogs about writing, feminism and society. Laila’s body of work encompasses literary erotica, romance, as well as the various fields of speculative fiction (dystopian/post-apocalypse, fantasy, paranormal romance and urban fantasy) and she adores finding ways to mix and match. Her short stories have been featured in numerous anthologies, among them Best Women’s Erotica 2014 and Best Erotic Romance 2014.
We’re very happy to announce the release of Harper Bliss’ first standalone novelette since I Still Remember (one full year ago!) Harper has two more of these in the works (“increasing in hotness and orgasm count as Christmas approaches,” Harper says) and next month will also see the release of Harper’s long awaited novel At the Water’s Edge (“the tear jerker with only three naughty scenes,” Harper says.) (“Shut up now, Harper. We’re trying to write a blog post here!”)
Harper has this to say about As Years Go By on her blog. We think it’s one of her best yet, displaying deep emotions, nostalgia for a love gone wrong, and raw need as well as tenderness and understanding.
Here’s the blurb:
At her son’s graduation ceremony, Jodie unexpectedly runs into her ex-partner Leigh. Because of how painfully it ended between them, Jodie is taken aback at first, but gradually allows Leigh to draw her back in—just like she used to—and shock soon makes way for memories of the intense desire they once shared.
Cheyenne Blue should not be a stranger to anyone acquainted with Ladylit titles as she makes regular appearances in our themed mini-anthologies (such as Sweat, A Christmas to Remember, Bossy and the soon-to-be-released Cougars) and has edited the fabulous, recently published anthology Forbidden Fruit.
Cheyenne has been writing lesbian erotica since 2000 and has amassed quite a number of stories over the years. Ladylit has the extreme privilege of collecting these stories that have been scattered over numerous wonderful anthologies.
Blue Woman Stories Volume 1 is the first of a series of mini-anthologies containing the collected lesbian erotica of Cheyenne Blue that we’ll be releasing over the coming months. So, if you like Cheyenne’s contributions to any of the anthologies she has appeared in over the years, you’re in for a treat.
Here’s the blurb for Blue Woman Stories Volume 1
A long-time couple weave a fantasy of seducing a straight woman, old friends become lovers in the French countryside, and a cop sent to investigate a suspected dope grower finds more than she expects in a tropical garden. Cheyenne Blue’s lesbian erotica has been a staple of many anthologies since 2000. Blue Woman Stories Volume 1 collects together for the first time five of her best-loved stories.

Instead of shouting ‘Champagne for everyone’ (in true Bubbles Devere style), we have something much better for you. To celebrate the release of Cheyenne Blue‘s anthology Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire, we are offering it at the extremely low launch price of $0.99. (You can’t even get an apple like the one on the cover for that little money.)
Here’s the blurb:
She’s off limits but the attraction burns so bright it’s impossible to resist.
This collection of seventeen stories charts the spectrum of unwise lesbian desire, gathering tales of women you should resist—but can’t. In Jean Roberta’s Shelter the bad girl’s back from prison. An upper-class lady seduces her maid in Laila Blake’s poignant story set in Regency England, while a Catholic nun is beguiled by a hooker in Lisabet Sarai’s powerful The First Stone.
These women are cops, slave owners, doctors, Dommes, and horse thieves, and you’ll find them at the pool, being seduced by older women, putting their job on the line for lust, or seducing the salt-and-pepper butch.
With stories from writers at the top of their game, including Sacchi Green, Erzabet Bishop, Beth Wylde, Harper Bliss, and Allison Wonderland, this collection is sure to thrill.
And you can get it from these retailers (for $0.99 until 11 September, after which the price will go up to $6.99):

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.
