Selected by village elders as the virginal sacrifice to the wild beast terrorizing her village, Leoda wanders into the woods surrounding the town trembling with fear...and anticipation. Captured, chased, and thrown into the terrible monster's den, the beast is getting what he wants. The only question is whether Leoda fight him, or give in to sinful desires that she's surprised to find burning inside her? Excerpt: “Are you going to hurt me?” “Yes, probably,” he snapped at the air. “Mmm, I smell you again. I smell your lust for me. You want me, don’t you, human? You want to be enraptured beneath me, you want me to take you with the force only a creature such as my...myself can muster, don’t you? That’s what you want, isn’t it?” I began to weep and beg him to leave me, to go back to whatever hell from whence he came, but the beast only lowered himself to his haunches, and put his face so that I felt his breath on my throat, and the wiry fur hanging off his chest brushed against my thighs where he had pushed my dress up, almost to the top of my legs. Before I knew what he was doing, the tremendous creature had got me to push myself backward until I touched the wall and could go no further. “Good,” he growled from deep in his chest. “Very g – good. You’ve got yourself in a terrible spot now, don’t you? I ne...need this. You, though might find out that instead of needing it, you just...
want...it.” “Want what? Want you? What are you talking about? No I don’t think that’s the case at all! Why would I-” I was cut off not by his words, but by the heat of the monster against me. His fur seemed hard and close to his body, not shaggy like most wolves I’ve seen, so he couldn’t have been that sort of beast, at least, not a normal one. But through that slick, hard coat, a terrible fury seemed to burn so bright that I felt him against my skin, even inside me, burning outward from my core all the way to my fingertips. “You want me because you know there’s no...no way you can get out. You want me because you feel how much I need you, and you want me because,” he snorted again. His breath caught and he coughed. “You feel me against you and want to know what it’s like to be with such a thing as me, to have an experience so awful and foreign and forbidden as to give in, and stop denying yourself.”
Towards the end of his first season in Formula One, Eddie Jordan often feared he was driving headlong towards bankruptcy. One of his drivers was sent to prison. Another, the future world champion Michael Schumacher, was pinched from his grasp after just one auspicious race. Somehow, he survived, kept control of his fledgling team and with a series of astute deals and inspired publicity coups battled on to establish his name and his team as one of the powers in the ultra-competitive world of Formula One motor racing. Deals were always popular with Jordan, all through his life.

Perché le donne poste di fronte a un bivio scelgono l'una o l'altra via? Perché la strada che a una donna sembra l'unica da poter percorrere, per un'altra è assolutamente da evitare? Cosa muove le loro scelte d'amore e di vita? Queste sono alcune delle domande a cui la protagonista, Mitta, cerca di dare risposte. Anche lei è donna o meglio lo era, essendo morta di peste a Napoli nel 1656.
Oggi di quel che fu Mitta non resta che la capuzzella, un teschio, uno dei tanti che riposano nell'ossario della Chiesa del Purgatorio ad Arco a Napoli, oggetto del culto delle anime pezzentelle. Nel doppio ruolo di autrice e defunta, Mitta tenta di comprendere e raccontare con ironia le scelte delle donne che in quasi quattro secoli sono scese nella cripta chiedendo alle anime del purgatorio un aiuto in cambio del refresco. Partendo dalle storie e dalle scelte di vita di talune di queste donne - l'ancella medievale, la prostituta della Rivoluzione Partenopea, la maestrina dell'Unità d'Italia, la borghese dell'epoca fascista, l'universitaria dei nostri giorni per citarne qualcuna - e attraversando vari periodi storici, Mitta finisce per narrare anche la propria vita e la sua non scelta.
SATISFYING NATALIE - An Erotic Romance Do YOU want to read a real erotic romance? Then this erotic short story is for you! What do you do when you're passionately in love with someone and they reject you? Do you hate them? Do you try and get back at them? Or do you do what Larry does in this hot romance of just over 20,000 words? This story is completely different from nearly everything else you'll find in the adult stories genre. First of all, it's written by a man and told from the man's point of view. But that doesn't mean you won't feel for the woman, who is really the star. And the steamy sex scenes are every bit as erotic as when experienced through a woman's perspective. Disclaimer: If you're looking for vampire-squids, sadomasochism or arrogant billionaires, then you won't find them here. What you will find is a strangely compelling, gritty xxx love story written by a published author (offline and online) and featuring two people - one an ordinary English male (Larry) who falls in love with a far from ordinary woman called Natalie.
Everyone says she is out of his class and that he really doesn't stand a chance. She's stunningly beautiful and he knows she could have any man she wanted.
And he knows there's something else about her, but he can't figure out what it is. Determined to win her over, but facing overwhelming odds, Larry has to summon all his courage just to make the first move. Once he does, it's clear Natalie has a secret that prevents her from having a normal relationship with a man. Only if he has extraordinary powers of persistence and understanding will he manage to find out what it is. And if he does, can he help her and thereby make her his own? PLEASE NOTE: This erotic short story contains explicit language and forthright descriptions of straight sexual acts, a certain amount of man-talk, plus a few examples of Cockney rhyming slang. If you are under 18 or if any of this is liable to offend you then please do not purchase this book. NOT a 'holiday romance', but set in the working areas of an English seaside holiday camp in the mid 1960s, this powerful, uninhibited love story is told in graphic, erotic detail where appropriate, and you will find yourself reading it again and again, as much for the romance as for the eroticism. And yes, it does have a HEA.
