About this author

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them.

When others are writing bad men doing bad things you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.

This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.

Squirm - virgin captive of the billionaire biker tentacle monster (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 29, 2014 04:19AM
Description: A parody of everything great and weird in erotic romance that could be stuffed into one book without it exploding. <b>For some girls, one tentacle isn't enough.</b> Having a bad day isn't good but when Virginia Chaste has a bad day, she gets felt up by a tentacle monster. If it simply <i>has</i> to happen, let it at least be a billionaire and a hot biker. Virginity isn't all it's cracked up to be and her search for the Holy Grail of Erotic Romance, the ten inch purple-headed schlong, may have finally borne fruit. Yeehaw! Playing hide the tentacle has never been so much fun.
Intimidator, Book 2, Preyfinders (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 12, 2014 05:19PM
Description: Willow has her hands full scraping out a life in a grungy neighborhood where drugs and crime are the norm. Life is hard, but it’s about to get harder. Being transformed into a sexual pet for an alien warrior may be her only way out. But Stom, the man she’s been awarded to as a battle honor, has no use for a female, not when his heart is still in a million pieces. Though the need to be Stom’s mate is overwhelming her, mending his heart isn’t going to be enough. His enemies are searching, looking for the women who are more than they seem, and she’s in their hands before she discovers she’s more-than-human. Sometimes it sucks to be a chosen one.
Make me Yours Evermore (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Dec 19, 2013 05:17PM
Description: Taking what you want may come at a terrifying price. Chris calls his darkest, nastiest fantasy into the light of day when he has to kidnap Kat to save a friend. For years, he’s wanted to bring her to her knees. But claiming her draws attention. Andreas wants to save Kat, until he sees her response to raw male dominance. More dangerous are the human traffickers, who regard the acquisition and selling of women as a very high stakes business. And they’re watching. Everything. Death. The perversion of love. The loss of freedom. Sometimes there is no choice. Warning: Capture fantasy; dubious consent; anal play; strap-on; M/f/M and f/f scenes; BDSM themes including caning, spanking, bondage, and piercing, as well as some upside-down naughtiness. Also contains one Dom gone bad who believes obsession means never having to say you’re sorry.
Bind and Keep Me (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 10, 2013 04:12AM
Description: How far would you go to protect your love and your life? When two deaths turn his world upside down, Klaus must wrestle with a problem that goes soul deep. With Jodie it was capture fantasy but now he’s made the fantasy real, dragging her along as his accomplice. No one should feel so good about something so wrong. Maybe his soul is darker than he feared. Maybe the rules shouldn't apply to him. Warning: Dark erotica, M/f/f, BDSM themes, capture fantasy, and dubious consent. Contains spanking, bondage, caning, and piercing, and one alpha possessive man about to toss aside his morals and take what he wants.
Take Me, Break Me (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 19, 2013 05:06PM
Description: Jodie is scraping the barrel trying to stay afloat. An idea arrives that could rescue her finances and bring her together in a kinky way with a man she never gave up on. She's terrified and fascinated, and tempted as hell. Capture fantasies rule her eBook. Re-enacting one in a documentary would surely be irresistible viewing to millions of women? But Jodie and Klaus discover that underneath an ordinary man dark desires may lurk. What will win in the end? The man and lover, or the monster?

“If you lie there much longer, I’ll be tempted to tie you to the table legs and try buttering your ass instead of the toast.”
Cari Silverwood, Iron Dominance

“Everything about him enveloped her, made her crave exactly this. His possession. In her mind something relaxed; the balance shifted. She welcomed every way he could touch her, the heat from his body, the atoms of his breath. Everything.”
Cari Silverwood, Iron Dominance

“As she reached back for the buckle, her fingers met Mr. Meisner’s. She jumped. “I can do this... Sir.”

“Ah.” He brushed aside her fingers. “I see you’ve at least remembered the sir.”

“One always calls gentlemen that, just as you--”

With only a rustle of cloth to warn her, his teeth met in the lobe of her ear, sending a spark into her middle. Like the melt of winter snow, she felt heat pool in her lower body. Her fingers curled against her collarbone where her hands still rested either side of her neck.

“I’m not a gentleman, Faith.”
Cari Silverwood, Rough Surrender

“She’d run over Dankyo in an instant to get to Theo. Be a darn big bump in the road, but she’d do it.”
Cari Silverwood, Iron Dominance

“If you lie there much longer, I’ll be tempted to tie you to the table legs and try buttering your ass instead of the toast.”
Cari Silverwood, Iron Dominance

“The vampire stared at me, his mouth slack as Ghastek assessed his options. I took a couple of forms from my desk, put them into the vamp's mouth, and pulled them up by their edges.
"What are you doing?" Ghastek asked.
"My hole puncher broke."
"You have no respect for the undead.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

“For the first time since he showed up in my checkout lane, I let my eyes wander the full length of his body. The bulge in his running down the side of his pants leg is quite noticeable; either he has a banana in his pocket, or he’s happy to see me. Then I notice a similar bulge running down the side of his other pants leg. Either he has two bananas in his pockets, or he has two erections.”
Andrew Shaffer, Fifty-one Shades: A Parody
