The Changing Relationship The relationships of today have changed drastically from their earlier counterparts. Long periods of courtship are a luxury many young people no longer care to afford. Promises of abstinence before marriage are a thing of the past (you show me a virgin and I’ll show you a liar … or someone who needs to become better acquainted with their dictionary). These days, young couples often live together for a year or more before a ring ever comes into play (if it comes into the equation at all). Booty calls, one night stands, f$%k buddies, friends with benefits – these are all common phrases that are relevant to today’s relationships. Hell, many long term relationships actually start out with one (or more) of […]

Petals and Thornsby Jennifer ParisebookPublished July 13th 2010 by Loose Id, LLCRWI More Than Magic FinalistGenre: BDSM FantasyEXCERPTRATING:★★★★ Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play, BDSM theme and elements, dubious consent. REVIEW:OH MY! Petals and Thorns is definitely not Disney’s version of Beauty and the Beast. Imagine if you will, that the Beast ties up Belle and shows her the pain and pleasure of the BDSM world. WOW.

Interview with Joey W. Hill + Giveaway

Posted February 15, 2012 by Jennifer in Top Menu | 63 Comments

I’m so EXCITED to have Ms. Joey W. Hill, one of my favorite BDSM authors, here today. I am a huge fan of your Vampire Queen series. Looking at your website I see that you write several other series (Nature of Desire series, Daughters of Arianne, Knights of the Boardroom). I realize this question is like asking a parent who is their favorite child; but which series do you enjoy writing the most? Thank you for that compliment! It really is a lot like asking about the favorite child (grin). Paranormal romances are harder for me to write, because they have to have a paranormal plotline in addition to the relationship one, and of course world building is often involved. Contemporaries allow me to focus […]
