As the pack's Beta, Robert needs to watch over the Vasi werewolf pack for a few days. He hates the responsibility, but his job is to dissolve any problems while his alpha honeymoons.


Nevertheless, trouble comes to town and her name is Esther. She's beguiling, beautiful and picks his pocket. Although Robert doesn't trust her, he still wants to possess her.


Esther arrived in Chicago with the intention of slaying a vampire named Daedalus. While trailing her quarry, she encounters Robert who unhinges her world. He doesn't know her trade, and she doesn't know his connection to the vampire.


Disturbed by her attraction to this unusual werewolf, she can't decide which prey to hunt. The one who's stolen her heart or the one who'll fill her bank account.


Hot graphic werewolf sex, growing body parts, and one pissed off Nosferatu.

As I plot out the three remaining stories in the Planetary Bodies series -: Current, Fusion and Frequency, I'm playing about with an erotic fantasy romance with the working title of Fury.


As I type this I have about 14k written.  Hope to have a lot more when Sunday rolls around.  Anyway, here's my six:



Sunlight gilded his muscled body.


Ava dropped her head into her hands and leaned heavily on the balustrade.  In the silence, the cool air carried the turn of his bare feet over the sand of the arena, the soft huffs of his breath as his supple body flowed through the series of twisting, intricate moves. The marble dug into her bony elbows and she ignored the pain for her illicit moment of man-watching.


Captain Nahum Heyerdar put on his naked show every morning, just as the sun crept over the second watch tower. Welcoming the fire of the sun as she touched the earth.

My head was fuzzy this afternoon, so I took my Scrivener trial in to the real world and plotted up Fury – well as much as a non-plotter like me can plot.  The other half wanted to stand back from it and see if he could see Megamind…

So I'm writing my new wip, Fury, an erotic fantasy romance, and I came to a little section where my heroine, Ava, witnesses a woman she knows having sex with two men.  (Yes, this is my usual writing day :) ).  I could 'see' the scene in my head, the corridor that Ava stood in, the scents, the sounds of the others witnessing the display…but the threesome were remarkably…absent.


So I played a bit of Barbie and Action Man in my head.  I had to flesh out where they were in relation to the room and each other.  It was mechanical and unsexy.  This is a sort of recreation.  I deleted the original monostrosity.



The guard lay beneath her on the bed, his hands firm on her breasts.  Another knelt between the splayed thighs of her and the guard. Eleta's glistening skin, caught and gleaming in the golden light.



As I got more into viewing the characters, into almost using a full senses camera to move around the bed, taking in the sight of her skin, the way the light touched it, how they moved together, how that would feel, the little scene coalesced into this draft.



Ava couldn't close her eyes. They'd thrown back the shutters to narrow arched window and golden light bathed the wide bed set in the middle of the small room.  It shone against a tangle of limbs, Eleta's white skin gleaming with sweat.  The men, beneath and above her, found her with their mouths, their dicks.  Low groans, Eleta's increasing cries and the wet slap of quickening flesh filled the air.


Ava tried to remember to breathe, her gaze fixed on where their bodies joined, watching the increasing slide of both men in and out of Eleta's flesh.  Heat burned in Ava's face, the warmth in her belly matching it.  The strength bound up with the three wet her mouth.


They'd fucked before, often, knew each other's need and bodies so well the pleasure that burned from them smooth and all consuming.



It's still in the first draft stage – I wanted to get Ava to her hero :D – but I'd stopped worrying about where Tabs A and B went into Slots C, D and E and let the sensations of the act overtake the mechanics.

Glint GLINT ~ Portia Da Costa

Walk on the Wild Side Books, May 2011


Suzy and Gavin are a sexy loving couple who are on holiday the seaside. Something about the sun on their skin and the bracing sea breezes seems to bring out the daring and adventurous qualities in this pair, and before long, they're involved in wickedly naughty exhibitionist frolics on the sand, putting on an erotic performance for a mysterious voyeur watching them from the headland.


But that's not all. Having put on a show themselves, it's not long before Suzy and Gavin are turning the tables, and observing another pair of sexy holiday makers who like to make love for an audience.  Naturally one thing leads to another and these voyeuristic thrills spur their desire yet again…


GLINT is a 5700 word slice of life story, a pocket size snapshot of a couple's sensual relationship. Originally published in Hide and Seek [ed. Alison Tyler] and the Mammoth Book of New Erotica 8, this release is an enhanced and rewritten version of the original story, over twice as long as the printed version with masses more sexy action for two happy, frisky lovers.


GLINT is for sale at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, All Romance Ebooks and Smashwords, with additional outlets to follow.


Excerpts available here and here.

Wow, I sort of dropped away for a bit there, didn't I?

School holidays and a run of bank holidays threw me out completely.


So, here's my six from Friction –out a few days back :D — Enjoy!



She teased the smooth material between her fingers. "You get what you want." Looking up at him through her lashes—a deliberate flirtation—she wet her lips. "That is, me. Shouldn't I get something in return?"


"Aren't I enough?"



As always, you can read more 6 Sundays here.

Happy dancing today as I've sold my SFR novella SYNTHETIC DREAMS to Carina Press.


Here's the unofficial blurb:


With no past to turn to and no hope for the future, Vyn Somerton does what she always has: she survives on her skills, hidden away from the prying eyes of the Corporation. Until now.

Vyn has created the ultimate in illegal gear, simulacrum, the perfect virtual lie.  It's untraceable, untouchable, and until recently, impossible to create. She has plans to make herself rich beyond her wildest dreams…that is, until the Corporation turns her life upside down.  Again.



Paul Cross is a part of that upheaval.  Catalyst.  Corporate Mercenary.  Incredible and forbidden. He's been watching Vyn, knowing that she's the key to finding and rescuing his brother, a brother the Corporation he works for has replaced with a stranger. She's a means to an end.  But watching her, moving though her life, he finds his thoughts becoming unexpectedly…carnal.



With their enemies closing in, Vyn's life is in chaos.  Can she trust Paul or is he the key to the destruction of all her worlds?


And there's a little behind the scenes info at my website, here

A new release – THE WEAVERFIELDS HEIR by David Bridger



When Kate Richards inherits a dilapidated English estate from her estranged grandfather, she finds herself thrust into a world full of hostile new family members, mysterious Romany tenants, and strange visions of "the net" – an invisible web that connects everything in the universe. Kate thinks she's losing her sanity, but the odd family stories and disturbing tales of locals convince her that something sinister is going on at Weaverfields, while the inescapable pull of the net draws her deeper into the secrets of her new home.


But with those secrets come danger, and an old evil that refuses to let go of its hold on the net – or on Weaverfields. The only person who seems to understand is Joe, a Romany street artist with his own ties to the land. Kate and Joe must master the net before the past intrudes on the present… in very ugly ways…


Read an excerpt and buy The Weaverfields Heir at Etopia Press.
