Hello all, I’m Victoria Blisse and I write Rosy, Raunchy Romance. Which means I write it dirty and romantic and I hope that you’ll feel happy and satisfied when you reach the conclusion of any Blisse book you read. I’ve been writing erotic romance since the beginning of this century (doesn’t that sound impressive!) and whenever I’m asked I tell people my husband made me do it. He encouraged me to write a dream into story, then to publish it online (Literotica.com if you were wondering) and the rest, as they say, is history. I had my first story published in 2006 and now I’ve got stories out with Cleis Press, Mischief, Xcite, House of Erotica and Totally Bound and I’m even an editor these days, a co-editor anyway with my mate Lucy Felthouse. Wonders will never cease! I’m also part of a merry band of smut authors called the Brit Babes. Check them out for quality assured erotica that covers many genres and heat levels!
Having over 100 different stories to my name ranging from shorts to novels I will definitely not be detailing every one for you, I’d be here all week. I’ll tell you all about my latest ones, a bit of blurb and a sexy snippet of each to whet your appetite!
Three hot men and one curvy woman, now we’re really cooking.
After breaking out of a truly awful relationship Paula finds herself floundering until she bumps into Gary. He cheers her up with a much coveted appointment at Flair, where more than her hair gets pampered. In return she offers Shane and Gary a cooking lesson to cheer up their ready-meal laden week.
The Friday feast turns into a sex laden success and becomes a recurring weekly date. Paula loves having the sexual attention of two hot bi guys but longs for something deeper.
Shane sets her up with professional chef, Nigel McCormack. Paula responds to his dominant appeal and the delights of all three men together. But how will Paula fair when she takes up a position in Nigel’s professional kitchen, will she capture his heart or will he return to his first love, food?
“You should take off that pretty dress, Paula, before you get it messy. You’ve already had a near miss.”
“But then I’ll—I’ll just have—I mean I’m not very…oh, okay.” I had loads of excuses for not taking my dress off but with these two gorgeous men standing nigh on naked before me none of them really sounded very valid. I stood and looked nervously from Gary to Shane, they were both smiling and seemed incredibly relaxed however there was a tension in the air that I’m sure all three of us must have felt. It increased as I grabbed the edge of my dress and slowly pulled it up my body and off over my head.
I turned around and draped the dress over the back of the sofa. When I looked back I caught both Gary and Shane out and out staring at me. I crept my hands down my body and rested them over my stomach.
“Right,” Gary said, pointedly looking at Shane, “let’s get back to the dessert.”
Two hot, sexy billionaires know what they want and they want her, but will they be happy to share nicely?
Kerry Matthews is used to stress—she runs her own high-end London club called Diamonds, but what she isn’t used to is attention from two very persuasive and powerful men.
Darren Bennett and Greg Stamford are life-long rivals, but call a truce to spend one night with sassy, curvy Kerry. They’re not content to share forever though. They both have a selfish desire to possess her completely.
Darren buys her seductive lingerie, flowers and chocolates, Greg flies her to Paris for a romantic break, cleans her flat and makes her breakfast in bed. Both vying to cement their place in her heart. She needs to decide between them but is dazzled by their persuasive personas and extravagant gifts.
“Local legend has it”—Greg turned towards me as we approached the bridge—“that if a couple kiss in a gondola under the Bridge of Sighs at sunset then their love will last forever.”
I beamed at him, the soft light of sunset bathed us and, as the shadow of the famous bridge covered us, his lips pressed against mine. It felt like magic, the golden sun like fire around us, the shadow of the bridge holding us, the sound of the water and the peace of that moment. I wanted the legend to be true. I’d not even thought about forever with Greg but when he kissed me it became a dream I wanted to achieve.
He pulled back, stroking his hand gently down my arm and smiling, a little hesitantly, a tad unsure. I reached out a hand and cupped his face, wanting to reassure him to make him feel better.
“That’s you and me bound forever then,” I said with a lighthearted giggle. “I hope you’re ready for it.”
He nodded and turned his head to kiss the inside of my hand.
“I think I can work with that,” he murmured, “you in bondage to me forever.”
Making it Real
He’s her secret fantasy, but can she turn her dreams into reality?
Mary loves the internet but is surprised to find herself falling in love over it.
Will is a mysterious, sexy American she meets on a forum and soon it becomes apparent they have Chemistry. Part time waitress and full time author Mary is thrilled to find out her online crush is visiting England on business and plans to seduce him.
But will the heat that freely flows from monitor to monitor be present in the cold reality of Manchester in winter?
“I surrender.” I gasped, my heart thumping.
“Well, I’m not going to let you.” He grinned, turning to scoop up more snow.
“No!” I screamed and tried to pull away from him. All I managed to do was overbalance. I fell to the snow covered lawn, pulling Will down on top of me.
Laughing hysterically, he spluttered, “Are you okay?”
I was giggling, too.
“Yes, I’m fine.” I felt his body heat warming me. I became aware of my breath as it escaped in short pants.
“You’ve got bit of snow just here…” he barely whispered the words as his fingers brushed gently against my cheek. They were cold but they heated me up, slowly at first. The flames of lust licked down his fingers to my cheek and then to my neck and lower to suffuse my chest. His fingers traced a light pattern, softly stroking as our eyes locked. I was lost in the depths of those treacle-coloured orbs. I wanted to lean up and press my lips to his.
I’m not just an author, I’m an editor too. Although, I share the duties with the wonderful Lucy Felthouse. She keeps me in line! Our smut anthologies cover different themes but all feature light-hearted sexy stories.
