WHIP OF DESIRE by March Hastings
Decades before Fifty Shades of Grey, there was Whip of Desire — the story of a woman with brutal needs no man could satisfy. Eve has beauty, talent and money, but deep within her is something wild that drives her to endure violence to satisfy her deepest, darkest, carnal needs.

BORN TO BE MADE by John Burton Thompson
Before EMMANUELLE, there was the story of Marvelle Martingale… a heart-stoppingly beautiful woman’s awakening of aching desire and her daring journey of carnal discovery as she explores every facet of her scorching sexuality in her quest for shattering, physical bliss and true love.

Guy Hill is a man on fire…who takes what he wants when he wants it. And what he lusts for is power, money…and women, lots of women. And the women lust for him, too, their desires inflamed by his raw need….and the violence that percolating inside him.

“Demaris’ narrative power plus copious doses of sex.” New York Times

KISS OR KILL by John Burton Thompson

Amazon Kobo Barnes & Noble

A scandalous, erotic crime classic originally published in 1962.

This is harrowing, seductive, and suspenseful a coming-of-age novel about Jack McKnght, a young man terrorized by his evil mother and beaten by his cruel half-brothers from her previous relationship. His mother and step-brothers are furious that Jack’s late father willed half of his estate to him, his only biological heir. Their bitterness towards Jack becomes so extreme, that he begins to suspect that they are plotting to murder him…

“There are scenes of shocking violence…but it’s not an action novel. There are hot scenes of seduction…,but it never felt like a graphic sleaze novel. There are a few genuinely romantic storylines… but it’s certainly not a romance novel. It’s really [about] a compelling character overcoming a difficult upbringing and becoming a man. The violence escalates throughout the novel building to a bloodbath of a climax.” The Paperback Warrior
