Hello gorgeous readers!!

Today we, over in Brit Babes Land, have an amazing competition for you to enter - with some totally INCREDIBLE prizes, thanks to our lovely friends at Ann Summers.

http://www.annsummers.com/.../ultimate.../07ototas1102004


WANT TO WIN SOME HOT SEX TOYS? Then just keep reading...



A little while ago the Brit Babes were delighted to be able to help out Ann Summers in their quest for competition entrants for their erotica story writing competition.

Now - after a hotly fought contest - the winners have been announced, and we have been lucky enough to catch up with the three lucky winners- and ask them a question or two!

So a massive congratulations to Izzy French, Matt Cole-Wilkin, and Catelyn Cash!!

Izzy French

Age: 49

Lives: Ruislip, London

Occupation: Librarian and has had short stories published by Xcite books.

Izzy says: “I loved the idea of turning the tables, and for the woman to be in control this time. I've always thought art has great erotic potential, and weaving various hues of a sexy colour into my story was great fun...”

Read Izzy’s winning story, RUBY here.

Judges comment: “Ruby stood out for me. She had a strong voice and the story was beautifully controlled. I am looking forward to seeing what Izzy French writes in the future.”

1. What/who inspired your story?

It was less a person who inspired me than the thought of art itself and all it's erotic potential. I love the colour red so enjoyed weaving that into my story in all its gorgeous, sensual variety. Oh, and the thought of the woman in charge.

2. Do you plan to keep on writing hot romance or erotica?

Yes I do plan on carrying on writing erotica - I loved writing this story and hope that showed through.

3. If you were trapped on a desert island, who would you want to rescue you?

Gosh that last one is tricky. So much choice! My taste in men is quite eclectic. At the moment I'm favouring Jack White from The White Stripes. And I'd never turn George Clooney down.



Matt Cole-Wilkin


Age: 21


Lives: Twickenham


Occupation: Barman


Matt says: “I wanted to write this because ultimately it's an art, and an art I want to take on professionally should good fortune and hard work allow. My inspiration came from a desire to write overall but the material itself was influenced by real life mixed with a curious studying of Jilly Cooper books...”


Read Matt’s winning story ON TOP here.

Judges comment: “This story moved with pace, built anticipation and was sensual, but just a little bit naughty too. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.”

1. What/who inspired your story?

The inspiration started as 'Well it's art, and an art I want to be part of' then when I realised I could potentially take part in the competition, upon writing my story I drew upon real life as well, (and this was key) the fantasies of a girl-who-was-my-friend. So I could easily narrate a sex scene from my own perspective, fine. But my audience wasn't me, (nor was it a bunch of mindless lads) so I had to confer with some women who said 'yes this works - this doesn't, this is what I like'. The whole lot was my inspiration - in a phrase it was real life, tied with aspirations. 

2. Do you plan to keep on writing hot romance or erotica?

Yes I do plan on writing more hot romance/erotica, I'm working on all manner of things/genres currently but I'm enjoying the erotica particularly and I'm looking to continue the venture.

3. If you were trapped on a desert island, who would you want to rescue you?

On a desert Island... Ellie Goulding, because she's gorgeous and I feel like we could probably hit it off, (as much as anyone can dream of such a thing).



Catelyn Cash

Age: 54

Lives: Bradford

Occupation: Administrative office worker

Catelyn says: “I’ve had short stories published before but nothing compares to the excitement I felt after finding out that my story was selected as the runner up. I’m thrilled that my story had an impact on the judges and I’m excited about the possible prospects!”

Read Catelyn’s winning story SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND here.

Judges comment: “Original, fresh and sexy magic realism

1. What/who inspired your story?

I didn’t see the competition until quite late on and though I wracked my brain I couldn’t come up with an idea at short notice. I sat down with a cup of coffee and spent several eye opening hours googling common sexual fantasies until –wow! Woman with a penis? Never heard that one before. After that it was easy.

2. Do you plan to keep on writing hot romance or erotica?

I do. In fact I have a hot novella coming out with LooseId on 3/3/15 called Beneath a Hot Tequila Sun. It isn’t on their website yet but I have another two novellas.


3. If you were trapped on a desert island, who would you want to rescue you?

This took some serious thought. Gerard Butler was my first choice but on reflection I think I’d go for Bear Grylls. What woman’s heart wouldn’t flutter watching him ride the waves to rescue her? And, of course if a storm kept us trapped on the island for a few more days, I’d we warm, fed and, I’m sure, very satisfied with my lot




This story writing competition got us Brit Babes thinking - and with the support of Ann Summers - we are thrilled to be launching our very own competition.

THE TITILLATING TITLE COMPETITION!!

Can you think of the perfect title for an erotic novel? The ideal name for a steaming story?

All you need to do to enter is make up the title of a book you'd really love to see written one day, and write it in the comments below alongside you email address. It really is as simple as that!!

The closing date is 17th March.
The winners will be chosen by a crack team of erotica writers. (US!!)

The overall winner, who suggests the title we like the most will win the Ultimate Rampant Rabbit Set from Ann Summers-



And the runner up will win the Noir Naughty Gift Set....



SO GET THOSE THINKING CAPS ON!!!

Good luck...

Love the Babes xx

Harlem Dae are Sexy as Hell!

Post by Lily Harlem


Harlem Dae - that's the pen name of myself, Lily Harlem, and Natalie Dae when we're writing together. Something we do quite a lot of, please check out our website.





One of the pieces of work we're proudest of is the Sexy as Hell Boxed Set. (CURRENTLY ON SPECIAL OFFER AT JUST 99C/99P)This comprises of three full length novels that make up the Sexy as Hell Trilogy (The Novice, The Player and The Vixen) plus three shorter spin-off stories about secondary characters (The Star, The Mistress and The Harlequin).

‘Sexy as Hell’ is a phrase used often enough, but what does it mean? Is Hell sexy? Not when depicted by religious literature it isn’t. In fact it’s a place to be avoided at all cost. To be in limbo is not a teetering-on-the-edge-of-eternal-wrath-and-fire tightrope you want to be balancing on. Well, not if you’re a good boy or girl that is.

So why does the expression Sexy as Hell make people twist a smile, twitch their eyebrows and glance sideways? Is it because the suggestion that Hell is sexy is wickedly immoral, hot-to-boiling point and holds hints of carnal desires met in the dead of the night when no one is watching? Does it imply sex in its most primitive form?—just the mating and satisfying of bodies without the emotion and the deeply committed love that Heaven sanctifies.

Is the Hell in the expression simply a profanity? Or maybe even a way to enhance the meaning of sexy? If you’re sexy as Hell are you more alluringly sensual than any other earth-walking human? Do you have your own unique, blistering red carpet to sashay upon and turn the head of the horniest devil and the most daring of lovers?

Sexy as Hell can be interpreted any which way you want; an expression of endearment, soul-aching ardour or unquenched lust. Take it how you want it, that’s the name of the game.

And that’s the game Zara plays, in the trilogy Sexy as Hell. Living in a nocturnal world of depraved sex shows where anything goes as long as it feels good, she really is burying herself under a shroud of sensation and hiding in a mist of dominant demands.

Until Victor comes along.



Kind and patient, he’s a vanilla corporate sort, bubbling over with an innate yearning to have his boundaries pushed. Zara is so up for the job she sets him a challenge, a month of lessons to find out what he really likes. To learn to think out of the box, or rather out of the bedroom and submit to her demands.

It was this rolling idea of lessons, each one more shocking to Victor and more exciting to Zara, that started the ball rolling in The Novice. Even with Victor’s secret, and Zara’s buried past, they both become so entrenched, so accurate at reading the other that living in polar opposites on the planet couldn’t quash the heat radiating from them.

So it became clear that The Player was going to have to be about diluting their needs, and then mixing them up again, concentrating that soup of want and longing until an explosion shot them high in the sky and then planted them deep in the earth again.

Hell.



Sex and love are a carefully constructed concoction which plays the prevailing role in The Vixen. Here the threads of Victor and Zara weave in an elegant pattern that ends up being as ugly as it is beautiful and as sinful as it is cleansing. It holds a theme of acceptance and healing, moving forward and stepping away from conventional love. This is the driving force of the trilogy, resulting in an epic journey two people find themselves on in the hunt for fulfillment, the banishing of demons and the promise of everlasting commitment.




Sexy as Hell, in its entirety is sensual, erotic and loving yet tests Victor and Zara to their limits. It will no doubt push reader boundaries too, throwing previous conceptions about sex right out of the pot and into the fire, in the most seductive, captivating of ways, of course. I hope you'll check it out and have a look at the other Harlem Dae novels, all of which are dark, tackle taboo subjects and hold a string of 5* reviews. Details on our website.

Thank you for reading

Lily and Natalie


Sexy as Hell is only available from Amazon/Amazon UK

(CURRENTLY ON SPECIAL OFFER AT JUST 99C/99P)

Ella Jade - Baseball Romance

Please welcome Ella Jade to the Brit Babes blog today...



Spring is just around the corner and so is baseball season. In my house, not only does that mean it’s time for professional baseball, but for my kids to take the field too. My weeknights and Saturdays will be booked solid through July.

In our house spring not only represents flowers, April showers and the start of longer days, but gloves, bats, and lots of Gatorade and sunflower seed consumption. I’m surrounded by the game.

When it came time to write my latest series I decided to make my hero a professional baseball player. It seemed like a no-brainer... all those hunky athletes to draw inspiration from and all. Having two boys and a husband who live and breathe the sport made in-house research a breeze. Any questions I had about the game, schedules, pitching rotation and uniforms were quickly answered. Although by the time I was finished writing the book my questions were being answered with less enthusiasm. I think I tapped them out. The end result was worth it and now I’m currently working on book three in my Best Selling Kingston Heat Series.



Book two just released!

While the players are gearing up to take the field this spring I have a sports romance to help heat up your night.

Do you like sexy, charismatic, take charge infielders? Nic Cordova may be your next book boyfriend.


“I want to know the woman you are today. I want another shot at this.”

“No,” Sage whispered.

“If you remember anything about me, I have a hard time with that word.” Nic tipped her chin, focusing on her lips. “I am going to kiss you. Right here and right now.”

Her knees buckled as a cool tremor swept through her. She wanted to say no. It was the only logical word to mutter, but her heart didn’t want her to say it. Her body wasn’t on board with turning him down either. The warmth that built in her stomach had moved lower, and now all she could think about was his lips on hers.

“It doesn’t sound like you’re asking,” she breathed out.

“I’m not.”



Sliding Into Second features one of my favorite themes... second chance stories. After a seven year separation, Nic and Sage are reunited. Nic is ready to start over and vows never to let Sage walk away again. Sage has other plans. She won’t let him break her heart a second time.

“Whatever we’re doing, it can’t be more than this,” Sage said.
“You just want physical?” Nic placed his free hand on the side of her face, guiding her to his lips. “I don’t believe that’s what you really want. That’s not the way your heart works.”
“It does now.” She had to protect herself.
“I don’t believe that.” He kissed the corner of her mouth. “You’re lying to me.”
“I can leave right now if what I’m asking is too much.”

Not letting her heart get in the way is easier said than done. Once Nic turns on the charm there’s no running away. Old feelings come rushing to the surface and Sage has to make a decision... run or take a shot with her second baseman.

Both books in the Kingston Heat Series stand alone and can be read in either order. If you like sports romances with strong, sexy men and the women who know how to challenge them be sure to grab both Stealing His Heart and Sliding Into Second. You can pick up Sliding Into Second for a discounted release price of 99 cents. That’s a total steal!
