Once upon a time, a naughty girl called Tansy stole a very precious manuscript from a kindly antiquarian. But all of the world’s ancient and powerful magic, lost for centuries, has returned...and now there is much more at stake than a few sheets of parchment.

Thus begins a rude and rugged fairy tale, the likes of which you NEVER read when you were little! Poor Tansy is led

Faries, monsters, witches, roan trees, exhibitionism, dungeons (both the prisnon and bdsm kind), otherworldly bodily fluids and really hot paganism; what the hell more could you want? Oh yeah, illustrations. This is perfect for all the nerdy fantasy pervs in your life and the writing's quite nice too.

Well Holy Fuck......!

If you are looking for a book to completely saturate your smutty mind then can I suggest that you look no further. WARNING>>> If you are looking for a lovely cosy romance though, this probably isn't your bag, at all! Looking for an incredible BDSM buster... then this is certainly the novel for you!

Named and Shamed by Janine Ashbless is marketed as "A dark and dirty illustrated erotic fairy tale" and my God, is it pure filth..... and I LOVED IT!

Warning: This is the hottest book you will read this year.

Seriously. I am still in shock.

A colourful blend of the worlds of fantasy, myth, folklore and a dash of reality, Janine Ashbless uses all the powers of her astonishing imagination to bring you the most debauched tale of sorcery and depravity you're ever likely to read.

I really didn't have any clue what I was in for when the lovely people at Sweetmeats Press sent me Named and Shamed to read and review. Yes ok, the cover states Warning! Exx

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of Named and Shamed which I was so looking forward to reading as this was my first footsteps into the world of fantasy erotica and I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't know how fairies and goblins were going to work with an erotic book; can it really be done and made believable and most of all can it really be sexy? Plus It is also my first book I have read from Janine...but oh my what an incredible read.
I'm a complete convert for erotic fantasy no

*Book source ~ Many thanks to Sweetmeats Press for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Tansy has a degree in anthropology, Comparative Folklore to be precise. It’s probably one of the worst degrees you can get when it comes to job availability, but lucky for Tansy the fairy folk, or Them There as it’s better to call them, came back from wherever they had disappeared to and Tansy suddenly had a hush hush job with the government and money to live on. It’s on a job for the H

This starts out as a great book, and it's very enjoyable to read an erotic book that has been well researched and doesn't adopt a clichéd context.

I loved this book and it was looking good for a five-star review until the last few chapters. However, towards the end there were two things that took the gloss off for me. The first was (view spoiler)

A no-holds-barred descent into the most filthy and degrading sexual acts imaginable, with each fresh round of shame for the heroine soon being trumped by something even more debased. Fantastic!

I’m always impressed when an author can take a classic text and subvert it for the purposes of filth. Ashbless starts off with Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Market, positing a lost version which is a lot less prudish and cautionary. The tasting of the goblins’ forbidden fruits becomes a parallel to Tansy’s f

A picture book for naughty adults. This story is fantastic with the cross between reality and fantasy it really keeps you guessing what may happen next. The illustrations that accompanied the amazing story were so amazingly detailed and really bring your imagination to life. After I raved about the book my boyfriend decided to read it as well and he loved it even though it was a bit weird (his words)

The euphemisms used in this book weren't always my thing, but this book has some really powerful scenes, and those made more than up for it. Kink factor is rather high.
