Snow. Cold. Winter. Blah. My theme of the week is boredom. I am losing my mind with the same old work and routine. So is my husband. We’re hovering in this end of the season limbo waiting for temps to lift and the sun to come out so we can play. Sometimes, it’s just normal for life to become monotonous. My friends agree, they’re stir crazy. One of my editors at Parents is also about to lose it. I promised I would not name here. She’s especially bored this week.
We don’t have to live this way. Let’s spice things up!
I have the perfect idea.
Let’s download 6 erotic novels on Audible. Okay, so my kids can’t have anything to do with this raucousness. But my husband, friends and I will get a kick out of it. Listening to one of these will kill some time between now and spring, and it’s way better than Girls this season on HBO.
Here are 6 erotic novels that should be really good. They just won the 19th Annual Audie Awards, presented by Audio Publishers Association. Take a peak:
1. Carrie’s Story: An Erotic S/M Novel
by Molly Weatherfield, narrated by Shana Savage
The dirt: Imagine The Story of O starring a Berkeley Ph.D. in comparative literature, who moonlights as a bike messenger, with a penchant for irony, self-analysis and as well as anal pleasures. Set in both San Francisco and the more chateau-friendly, Napa Valley, Weatherfield’s deliciously decadent novel takes you on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, enticing “ponies”, (people) preening for dressage competitions. Desire runs rampant in this story of uncompromising mastery.
She is only nineteen. She is his new stepfather’s daughter. She is still nave and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother. But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.
The Killer Wore Leather is a deliciously tongue-in-cheek murder mystery set at a leather convention, allowing listeners into this private world of personalities and peccadiloes. It’s the kinkiest game of clue ever, with a sex toy as the murder weapon, and every leather man and woman lacks an alibi. Cleverly crafted and highly humorous, Antoniou is at her wicked best in this pause-resistant fetish fest.
He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past – and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him – and us – forever.
5. This Man
by Jodi Ellen Malpas, narrated by Edita Brychta
Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward – a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn’t want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can’t control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.
Romantics everywhere have been enthralled by Emily Bronte’s classic novel of the tragic love between beautiful, spirited Catherine Earnshaw and dark, brooding Heathcliff. The restrained desire between these two star-crossed lovers has always smoldered on the page. And now it ignites into an uncontrollable blaze. In Wuthering Nights, writer I.J. Miller reimagines this timeless story to reveal the passion between Catherine and Heathcliff – in all its forbidden glory.
