NEW RELEASE: Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire

Forbidden FruitInstead 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):

BossySummer 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?

After Sweat and A Christmas to Remember, Harper Bliss has rounded up the usual suspects again and put together Bossy: Five Productive Tales of Lesbian Lust.

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.

Call For Submissions: Forbidden Fruit

We are so proud and excited to announce the following call for submissions. We at Ladylit (all two of us) have been a huge Cheyenne Blue fan since we started reading lesbian erotica (many, many moons ago) and we are thrilled to have her on board for this anthology. Do submit!

Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire
Editor: Cheyenne Blue
Publisher: Ladylit
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 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.

NEW RELEASE: A Christmas to Remember

A Christmas to RememberChristmas 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.

New Release: Sweat (Five Sporty Tales of Lesbian Lust)

SweatWe don’t know about your summer, but our Hong Kong one has been soaking wet. Not just weather wise though, oh no, because we’ve been busy putting together this brand new lesbian erotica mini-anthology featuring nothing but sports stories. 😉

Harper Bliss teamed up with four of her favourite erotica authors and together they’ve produced one hot book filled with sweat, lady loving and… girls on roller skates. You’ll find running, tennis, swimming (leisurely), yoga and roller derby amongst the sports in this anthology. None of the characters in Sweat are Olympic athletes, but let’s just say they have other ways of breaking records.

Here’s the blurb:
Some girls simply swim or run, while others practice yoga or roller derby, but no matter their preference in sports, all the ladies in this mini-anthology get plenty of girl-on-girl action. Sweat contains five sporty lesbian erotica stories that will make you perspire with desire.

Caution: This title contains graphic language and sweaty lesbian sex and is suitable for adults only.
