Anthologies: Collecting the Best of the Best – Part 2







Hi folks,

This week’s blog continues our look at anthologies. They’re an excellent way for authors to share their short stories (or novellas) with readers.

My Amber Quill Press romance anthology, Naughty Nobles, is a collection of three fantasy novellas – A Most Unusual Princess, The Dark Lord, and A Midsummer Night’s Delights. Each story differs in its heat level, from a 1 (A Most Unusual Princess) to a 3 (A Midsummer Night’s Delights).

Even though all three stories are fantasies, they’re good examples of how different books in the same genre can be completely unique. A Most Unusual Princess blends romance and comedy, The Dark Lord is a moody, gothic romance, and A Midsummer Night’s Delights is a sizzling-hot erotic tale that lets the character explore their deepest fantasies.

Here’s a bit about the book:

Naughty Nobles…

Three Sensual Stories of the Aristocracy Behaving in Wicked Ways!

If you always thought the nobility were prim and proper…think again! This paperback collection of historical-fantasy erotica will have you longing for a remote castle of your own…

A Most Unusual Princess - Amber Heat Contest Winner! A high-spirited princess who’s not shy about sating her unfulfilled desires…

Princess Elara needs to find a royal husband, but claims that no man can satisfy her. Dalton, Elara’s special guard, finds her unusual misbehaviors charming—and enthralling. Dalton’s aloof manner intrigues Elara, and despite their differences, they share forbidden nighttime passions…

The Dark Lord - Amber Heat Contest Winner! An anguished, mysterious Lord with a penchant for peeking…

Katarina, an innocent village girl, agrees to become Lord Sebestyen Adrik’s latest companion, despite the dreadful rumors she has heard about him. When she arrives at his isolated castle high in the Carpathian Mountains, she discovers that the feared “Dark Lord” is a troubled man haunted by a cursed past. Katarina is left alone with Lord Adrik every night—will she become his next victim or find a way to cure him?

A Midsummer Night's Delights - November 2008 best-seller! A free-loving Marquis who always satisfies his guests’ secret fantasies…

Young newlyweds Julian and Annabelle are miserable. Their arranged marriage is lacking everything—especially sex. Julian is harboring a secret urge, and Annabelle’s longings go unnoticed, no matter what she tries. But all that changes when they are invited to the Marquis’ Midsummer Ball. Their unconventional hosts, Vincent and Sabrina, introduce them to a world where their most intimate, hidden passions are explored. Swapping and naughty games are just a few of the surprises awaiting them…

Reviewers had this to say about Naughty Nobles:

"5 Coffee Cups! The combination of these three erotic tales is awe-inspiring. Individually the stories are hot, but together they are scorching. Each story is unique in content but tied together by the sexual needs of each character and the means they will go to in order to reach fulfillment. The author has an outstanding grasp of the idea that when it comes to sexual gratification, there should be no limits. Naughty Nobles is an excellent read for anyone wishing to explore the fiery side of love.”

— Delane, Reviewer, Coffeetime Romance

Naughty Nobles is a trio of racy and erotic novellas that will entertain you and keep you guessing. The travels these three pairs of mismatched lovers have to take to reach true love are convoluted, erotic, and yet necessary. No one promised the road would be smooth, but with these couples there are necessary lessons to be learned by one or both as to the nature of life, love, sex, and true friendship. All of these can ultimately lead to a strong bond, the beginning of love that will be unbroken. Join Dalton and Elara, Julian and Annabelle, and Sebestyen and Katarina as they learn the ropes, and fall in love. Get a copy today. It is delightfully naughty reading!”
