A bit of kinky
bookery ....

with Ashe Barker

Issue 2 : January 2015

Welcome to second issue of my newsletter, a little earlier than I expected it would be. But with TWO new releases due out there's such a lot coming up in the next couple of weeks I wanted to share it with you now, not tell you about it afterwards.


What's new...?

I'm SO excited about Chameleon.

This is the debut story in Totally Bound's exciting new Totally Five Star series set in a chain of luxury hotels. TFS hotels are the best in the world - exotic locations, the ultimate in fine food, top class facilities, service second to none.

Chameleon is set in Marrakesh, sultry, seductive, hot enough to melt the Atlas mountains.

We're giving it a great send off with a blog tour starting on 30 January.

There's a competition and giveaway, and  lots of chat about how
Chameleon came into being.

Here are the dates and places.

But that's not all. I'm staying up past my bedtime on Friday 30 January to take over the Totally Bound Facebook page for an hour of chat, giveaways, discounts, competitions. 

Join me from 11pm GMT / 6pm EST

The book will be on Amazon, All Romance, etc from Friday and I'll be posting the buy links as soon as I have them. For now, you can grab it from Totally Bound.

Chameleon blurb...

A chance meeting, two strangers whose paths cross—in the same place at the same time, yet a world apart.
When mining engineer Ethan Savage spots the cloaked, veiled woman riding a donkey in the Moroccan desert, he can be forgiven for thinking that in some respects nothing much has changed in two thousand years. She wouldn’t look out of place in Biblical times. They pass, nod, smile politely and go their separate ways, two strangers a world apart.
But when, moments later, she rescues him from his crashed car, the first words she utters make Ethan realise that appearances can be deceptive. His little Berber peasant is not what she seems.
Shifting effortlessly between her traditional roots in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and her professional life as the Totally Five Star hotel doctor, Fleur is a human chameleon, able to adapt and blend into any environment. At first irritated then amused by the handsome stranger, Fleur knows the assumptions he’s made about her. As their paths cross once more at the luxurious hotel, she realises he, too, is not all he seems. This sexy Englishman holds the key to her most secret and sensual desires, dangerous yearnings she’s kept locked away for years. Now she has a choice to make.
Ethan is only in Marrakesh for a few days, then he’ll be gone and she’ll never see him again. No one will ever know, so surely it will do no harm? Can she pass up this opportunity? And once she’s trusted him with her body, experienced all he can offer, will she be able to return to her old life? Or will the sensual chameleon need to reinvent herself once again to fit into his world?

Red Skye at Night is a scorching hot story about a road trip across the Highlands of Scotland. It's out on 6 February, and we're having a blog tour for that too.

Here are the dates and places.

,,, and the blurb

Two strangers, one outrageous proposal, and the journey of a lifetime.

How far would you go? To Skye and back?

A random accident as a teenager wrecked Hope Shepherd’s aspirations to be an international athlete. Now working as a taxi driver, Hope is unsettled by a sexy Canadian she picks up at the airport. With his good looks and easy charm, he’s just the sort of man she can do without. But can she afford to turn down his offer?

He offers her a small fortune to drive him to Scotland, where he hopes to discover his ancestral roots. And not just anywhere in Scotland. Harry McLeod wants to go to the Highlands, to the Isle of Skye.

He is persistent, and Hope needs the cash. But what are the real terms of this outrageous deal?

Harry McLeod desires Hope, and the attraction is shared. If he can get her in his bed—or better still, tied to it—will she allow him to peel away her protective layers to release her inner submissive? Harry is stern, uncompromising, outrageously sexy and utterly irresistible. How will Hope respond to his dark brand of sensuality? Does he offer more than a generous fare and a few erotic encounters?

When they reach Skye, a feud spanning four generations challenges all that Hope thought she was coming to know about submission. Will it be enough to convince her that this could be a relationship to stand the test of time?

I'l post buy links as soon as they're up. For now you can get Red Skye at Night on early download from Totally Bound


ONE LAST THING.... to celebrate the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie Totally Bound is hoisting a BDSM question and Answer session on Facebook on 13 February, including a short video clip from me chatting about how that book changed the world of erotic romance.

Now this time I will be up well past my bedtime - it's at 9pm EST, which is 2am here in the UK! I'll be needing a lot of strong coffee, but I'll be in good company with Sierra Cartwright and Sean Michael.

La Brat continues my contribution to the Totally Five Star series, this time in the sophisticated glamour of Paris. 

She’s committed the cardinal sin, broken the eleventh commandment for submissives. No wonder the Dom she adores wants nothing more to do with her.

Eugenie believes her luck has turned when she lands an interview for her dream job – Events Organiser at Totally Five Star’s flagship hotel in Paris. This is her chance to return to the city which holds cherished memories for her, and pursue a career she loves. Most of all it’s a golden opportunity to leave behind the bitter taste of her disastrous break up with Aaron, the one Dom who can make her melt with a look, a word, a lift of his finger.

Her dream crumbles when she comes face to face with her nemesis, now Director of Security at TFS Paris, the one man who can wreck her dreams with just a few words.


The Brit Boys : On Boys anthology is a fabulous success, hitting the Number ONE spots on Amazon for Gay erotica and LGBT, and raking in loads of five star reviews.
