Annabel Joseph is a NYT and USA Today bestselling BDSM erotic romance author. She writes mainly contemporary romance, although she has been known to dabble in the medieval and Regency eras. She is recognized for writing emotionally intense BDSM storylines, and strives to create characters that seem real--even flawed--so readers are better able to relate to them.

Annabel also writes non-BDSM erotic romance under the name Molly Joseph. You can sign up to receive Annabel's newsletter here: http://wordpress.us7.list-manage.com/...

Some of Annabel's favorite authors are Laura Kinsale, Judith McNaught, Jo Beverley, Flannery O'Connor, Molly Weatherfield, and Anneke Jacob.

The books will stand alone but all the characters will be in all the books helping out the main hero and heroine. Of course each of them will have their own happily ever after with the naughty lady of their dreams. :)

I'm also working on a series of romances between bodyguards and clients. So much on the way!(less)

If you're into TPE and force-type books, I would suggest some of my earlier work. There's the Club Mephisto series (which is Club Mephisto/Molly's Lips/Burn For You.) Club Mephisto and Molly's Lips tell the same story of a TPE relationship, but Club Mephisto is from her surrendered/slave point of view, while Molly's LIps is from the Master's point of view. Then Burn For You is the final book with both their points of view.

Then there's Mercy, which is super intense and kinda controversial, but my TPE folks seem to LOVE it. There's Comfort Object, which definitely deals in humiliation and intense sexual kink. These books are all romances, with happily ever afters. I am, at heart, a romance author who just happens to be kinky and turned on by the hard stuff!

Those are the books that seem to resonate most with my TPE and hard kink readers. As time's gone by, I've started writing more romantic BDSM stuff and less hardcore stuff, although I've been itching lately to write something more in the style of my earlier work. So... stay tuned for that.

I do appreciate you giving my work a try, and I appreciate the folks who recommended me! Molly's Lips is often free at Amazon and always free at Smashwords if you wanted to start there, and see how it goes. You can read Molly's Lips or Club Mephisto first...order isn't important...but I always beg people to read them one after the other for the full effect.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to let me know!(less)
