Hump in the Night - Halloween Promotion

I have always had a fascination with the paranormal, from angels to ghosts to faeries and when I was asked to do an anthology dealing with these themes I jumped at the chance. That and I have never tried writing actual erotica. It was just too good an opportunity to pass up.
My style of writing is to always go for something different. My stories take unexpected twists or deal with out-of-the-ordinary characters. While stories of 5,000 words didn’t give me as much freedom as I’m used to, to develop the quirks, I managed to find plenty.
There was never any prospect of sparkling vampires here but I wanted something different and so came up with a story where the ‘victim’ turned the tables on his attacker and gave the vampire something to sink his teeth into. The angel takes a break from the final battle of good and evil to be with his demon lover. The werewolf is an angsty teenager and the faery is an ancient spirit unearthed in a tomb excavation. Out of them all only the ghost is as you might have imagined him to be.
Writing short stories full of sex was…interesting and yes, I did get fed up with it by the end. However, I have to point out that it isn’t all the stories are about. I can’t write stories without substance and I believe these have it, as well as humour, excitement and romance. Not your usual erotica or your usual paranormal.
An interesting experiment turned into what I consider to be some of the best short stories I have ever written.
Five stories of the paranormal, designed to thrill and tease the senses and to challenge all you’ve ever been told about the creatures that go Hump in the Night.

Aster is a vampire looking for someone. When he finds Kia his plan is to fuck him and drain him, but Kia has other ideas. Recognising Aster as the man he’s been waiting for, he turns the tide and seduces him, shocking him with secrets from the past. Together, they enter into an encounter that blows their minds and changes their lives forever.
Lucien is a werewolf. He’s always known he’s different. Definitely not an Alpha like his father. More akin to the bitches than the muscular Beta’s or lithe hunters he finds himself drawn to. When the enigmatic lone wolf arrives, with his pure white hair and ice blue eyes, Lucien is lost at first glance. After a burning hot dream he finally submits to the dominant male destined to be his mate for life.
Dema and Meri’el are an unlikely coupling. In the final war against good and evil they find themselves on opposing sides. Dema the demon and Meri’el the son of the King of Angels. Drugging each other with their bodies they unleash the primal fury of their true natures and rock the foundations of the earth and the heavens.
Grey doesn’t believe in curses. When he uncovers a cavern deep under the mountain feared by the villagers as a faery tomb, he scoffs at the superstition, until he meets a stranger who lures him into the wood. A steamy encounter in a forest glade has him wondering if being cursed is such a bad thing after all.
Shay is mourning the death of his soul mate, tormented by the fact he’d never told him how much he loved him. A knife in the back in a dark alley steals his chance to finally prove his commitment, until ghostly whisper in the same alley leads to a night of passion and the second chance both men crave, to finally find peace.




  1. This sounds like quite the exciting read. The whole "sparkling" vampire phenom really left you traumatized, didn't it Nephy LOL. I knew you hated it, but now that I've gotten to know you for well over a year I come to understand that it goes way beyond just pure hate. It's kind of funny.

  2. Well I think it's a bit mean of you to mock my allergy to sparkling vampires. Huh! *tossess hair* Vampires are dark and sexy and evil. Evil I tell you. Evil. *cough* You wait until my forces of evil take over the world. Then see how many sparkling vampires are left. Well, maybe a few to light the dungeons. LOL :)
