When finding my love for reading three years ago I tended to stay within the Contemporary, YA, and True Crime realm, but once I got my Kindle I branched out into the wonderful world of Erotic Romance thanks to "Kindle freebies" and author R.G. Alexander. Once I read my first book I was addicted and needed more.  I found some amazing authors in the Erotic Romance genre then I came across a free read that disturbed me in may ways and when I say disturbed me I mean that I was taken back by how much I enjoyed the book even though it contained some very extreme content such as: non-consent, torture, and humiliation. I know that these things are limits for some people, but the authors writing drew me in so deeply I couldn't stop even if I wanted too.

Since then I have found a few other authors that have really excelled in this Dark Erotic genre. I recently came across a new author when I won a book (Below the Belt) off of Jenna Jaxon's blog by author Skye Warren.

Below The BeltBlack belt Abe Montgomery is focused on winning gold. But at nationals, Abe meets Paris, a beautiful, mysterious woman. Paris Rivera has sworn off men and martial arts. Her black belt cost her more than years of dedication and sweat. The fight of Abe’s life looms ahead, with his dreams of owning a school and his future with Paris hanging in the balance. He may dominate on the mats, but he’s fallen hard for her. When the time comes for them to part, he may not be able to let go.

BELOW THE BELT is a 30,000 word novella of erotic romance featuring explicit sex and graphic language. Not for those under 18 years of age or those uncomfortable with the subject matter.


While this book looked intriguing I have not gotten to it yet, but when Skye Warren sent me a copy of her newest book Trust in Me (released Feb. 14, 2012) I couldn't help but put everything I was working on aside and read all 125 amazing pages of it. It's dark, gritty, disturbing, and amazingly fantastic!
I jumped into this book not realizing it was book 2 of a series,  Non-consent series. Ms. Skye Warren has done such a terrific job setting these books that I was able to follow the story all the way through. I didn't even realize it was book 2 until I finished and scanned her Amazon  profile to download more of her books.

So for those of you like me that prefer to read a series from the beginning this is book #1


Keep Me Safe
When Rachel is abducted by a group of thugs, one man steps in. Zachary wants her for himself, and she has no choice but to trust this stranger to keep her safe. When danger strikes again, Rachel's body may endure the pain, but will their tenuous bond survive the abuse?

This book contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and disturbing situations. Please don’t read this book if that makes you uncomfortable or offends you. For ages 18+ only.

 I'm giving away a copy of  Keep Me Safe to one lucky commenter. All you have to do is answer my question:

  1. Dark erotica is a favorite genre of mine. Others on that list would be BDSM and menage. Hmm...wonder what Jung would say? lol
    Please enter me in the drawing.


  2. I have to say I don't think I have, not sure. I don't recall any of my books saying "dark erotica". This book does look good though so wouldn't mind trying it. Thanks for giveaway.


  3. I'm not sure if I've read any either, but I agree with Phuong that the book does sound good :)


  4. I have read dark erotica. My first was Captive on the Dark by C.J. Roberts. The book of fantastic, and the writing is captivating! I'm currently reading Trust in Me by Skye Warren. I'm amazed by how much she has packed into a short story. I started late yesterday evening and had to make myself stop. 4:30 am comes early. :-)
