Tamsin Flowers Biography
Tamsin Flowers loves to write light-hearted erotica, often with a twist in the tail/tale and a sense of fun. In the words of one reviewer, ‘Ms Flowers has a way of describing sexual tension that forces itself upon your own body.’ Her stories have appeared in a wide variety of anthologies, for publishers including Cleis Press, Xcite Books, House of Erotica and Go Deeper Press. She has now graduated to novellas and novels – for Xcite Books, Secret Cravings Publishing and Totally Bound – with the intention of penning her magnum opus in the very near future. In the meantime, like most erotica writers, she finds herself working on at least ten stories at once: while she figures out whose leg belongs in which story, you can find out more about her at Tamsin’s Superotica or Tamsin Flowers blog. With her colleagues Jade A Waters and Malin James, she is a founder of the website Pillow Talk: Erotica Writers Talking Dirty.
An excerpt from The Scarlet Bond
The Scarlet Bond is my latest release (14 July 2014), so if you’ve never read any of my work, here’s a little teaser from it to, hopefully, whet your appetite. As sequel to The Crimson Bond, it continues the story of the bitter love triangle between three vampires, Willow, Etienne and Elouise—the sex is hot, the vampires are cool and the story races at a hundred miles per hour!
As she spoke Willow became aware of Etienne’s eyes upon her. He moved closer to the bed and the breath rasped in his throat.
Two little words which gave Willow the power she needed. A second later Etienne’s weight crushed her back against the mattress. His hands tore away her marl T-shirt and then he scraped her jeans down her thighs, still done up. Overwhelmed by desire once more, she could hardly breathe. It transported her back to when Etienne had first come to her in her room in Santa Fe. She plunged her hands into his dark hair, hardly daring to believe he was there and not another dream. But his hands on her body were as real as anything, raking her skin, clutching her breasts and forcing entry between her legs. She kicked her jeans off her ankles so she could open her thighs for him and she didn’t care that he still wore the mud-stained clothes in which she’d found his body the night before. She pulled up his shirt and the buttons ripped away easily from the rotten fabric. Then her mouth found his neck to kiss and bite. A familiar taste flooded her mouth and she felt the same hard body under her hands. She gasped.
As Etienne plunged into her he took hold of her throat with one hand. She felt his breath on her neck and his teeth on her earlobe.
“You don’t need Elouise,” he whispered. His voice sounded inside her head again. “It could be just us two.”
He grunted as he rammed into her again and again.
“She’s always wanted Rakim Argent.”
Etienne’s grip tightened on her throat. Willow put her hand on his shoulders and pushed back against him as hard as she could.
“No…I don’t believe you.”
“It’s true,” said Etienne.
His thrusts came faster and Willow felt her own climax closing in. When he let go of her neck and pushed his hand down between them to find her clit, she soared. Only Etienne could take her this far outside herself. She tumbled into an oblivion of twisted nerve endings and for the first time in a year she felt she’d come home, and things were as they were meant to be.

Willow Jackson develops an unhealthy obsession Etienne Corbeau; little does she realise he’s a suave, sophisticated vampire.

On the run after killing clan leader Etienne Corbeau, beautiful young vampire Willow Jackson finds sanctuary in Miami with her lover, Corbeau’s wife Elouise. But their hard-won freedom can’t last—when Elouise is snatched by a rival vampire clan, Willow is forced to confront a terrifying truth. The only chance to retrieve Elouise lies in raising Etienne from the dead. As his killer, she alone can perform the ritual—but how will her former lover, indeed the very man who made her a vampire, react when he’s resurrected?

When Dana Lewis starts her new job at a prestigious London advertising agency, she vows to herself that she won’t sleep with her new boss – a mistake that got her fired from her last job.

And when he starts playing footsie with her under the table at lunch on her first day, she knows it’s only a matter of time… Nathan Drake is a travel tycoon and he expects the very best from the agency he employs to create his advertising campaigns. Jack puts Dana on the job and Nathan makes it clear he likes what he sees, whisking her away to his country retreat. Before she knows it, Dana is burning the candle at both ends – and her new lovers are complete opposites in the bedroom.

But which man should she choose?

Doing It for the Coach
Private Jimmy Jackson joined the army for one reason—for the chance it would give him to box on the All Army Team and turn professional. But as a gay soldier, he sometimes needs to use his fists for other reasons, so when he arrives at his new unit at Fort Sandbridge, his main aim is to keep his head down, work hard and impress the coach. What he hadn’t bargained for was the sheer animal attraction that springs up between himself and Coach Virgil Perry the moment they meet. All Jimmy can think of is taking their momentary locker-room encounter further, and his fantasies are fuelled by dreams of what they could get up to alone together…
