We are turning ONE! Come celebrate with us...



On the first of July 2011, Naughty Nights Press, put up for sale on Amazon, All Romance Ebooks and Smashwords, the very first books to be published.

These books were The Cabin by Nathanial Bosch and Danvers Asylum by Chyrstian Marrero. Both of these books were written by up and coming authors and two totally different genres. The Cabin was a BDSM Erotica novella and Danvers Asylum was a Horror/Suspense novel.

These two books were to be the first of many that Naughty Nights Press would publish over the following twelve months.

There has been a good variety of BDSM, both light and heavy, a deliciously wicked amount of Gay Male fantasies, Ménages, Transgender, Romance, Steampunk and Interracial relationships that play a huge part in the diverse range of sub-genres of Erotica. Holiday themed anthologies of course made their debut at the correct times of year and our biggest on going anthology series, Campus Sexploits, showed us how many authors enjoyed taking their readers into fantasies of students and professors having hot steamy sex, not to mention the sorority and fraternity parties where anything could and would go.

As the months passed Naughty Nights Press began signing certain authors up to write for us exclusively or to write a certain type of erotica. These have been Cassandre Dayne, the Mistress of wickedly hot BDSM and Gay Male fantasy. Kiki Howell, the temptress of all things Paranormal. Tessa Wanton, the tantalizing tease of BDSM and Fetish, J.S. Morbius, bringing you his Transgender and teaching about loving the third sex, Abby Hayes, one of our paranormal writers extraordinaire and Ana Hart, Mistress of all things sexy.

NNP has been lucky to have authors who have been willing to push the limits in the written world of erotica but also to find that these same people have been, and continue to be enthusiastic supporters of their peers in helping to promote each other, give advice to those who are only just foraying into the world of digital publishing.

The staff at Naughty Nights Press would like to thank not only our authors who have made our first year such a successful year but also the readers who have purchased the books, the reviewers who have reviewed the books and those people who have helped to promote Naughty Nights Press, the authors and their published works.

So, now onto the fun part of our blog hop!

Naughty Nights Press is giving away 13 prizes with the Grand Prize being a Kindle Touch plus 2 ebooks of the winners choosing from our backlist on Amazon.

There is also 12 second place prizes, which will be an ebook randomly chosen from the NNP backlist.To view the prizes and read the synopsis of each ebook that has been chosen from our backlist, see at end of post.

Spotlight On...Ana Hart...Did someone say wannabe internet celebrity?

Well here we are on our final day of Spotlight On... 
and who better to end it up with.

The Queen of Vlog, the wannabe celebrity of the internet, the vivacious and spunky ANA HART!

I can hear you all now clapping, wolf whistling and stomping your feet.

Don't forget to go right to the end of this post to find the information for 
Ana's Spotlight On contest!

Ana Hart captured our hearts and other various parts of our body with 
Naughty Hot Shots - Six to One. This is one ménage plus more that you don't want to miss out on. 

Every woman’s fantasy comes to life in this ménage with six men lavishing their sexual attentions on a single woman.
The nameless female protagonist in this story has always dreamed of being, well, gang-banged. She confides this fantasy to her lover of two years, Derek, and much to her surprise, he sets out to make fantasy become a reality.
The story details our protagonist's journey into fantasy nirvana as she suddenly finds herself faced with the prospect of being with six men, including Derek, all at the same time.
Six to one is a fast-paced tale of lust and fulfillment, of animal passions and raw need.

Ana then went on to bring us all to a quivering heap with her latest book, REBORN. A paranormal erotic story that will make you gasp and moan in all the right spots.


Daniel Webb is your fairly average twenty-something year-old living in the bustling city of Stone Hills, Arkansas. High school graduate, College dropout, and currently an employee of a local coffee shop, where he spends the majority of his nights hovering over a hot grill. You know, a totally glamorous lifestyle...
Oh, yeah, and Sarelia, an elder spirit of the Lower World, gifted him with powers beyond his wildest imaginings only a few months ago. Some people would have been grateful. Others would have simply been in denial.
All Daniel feels is resentment.
Because honestly, Daniel's life is kinda sucking at the moment. His girlfriend Malorie dumped him. He's crashing on his brother, Mark's couch (who's being a bit of a dick about the whole thing), and his best friend, James Harin, won't stop smothering him with pity.
But when Daniel bumps into the sexy Alyssa Vega at The Pub and ends up going home with her for some no-strings-attached fun, something finally seems to be going right. Alyssa is just the spot of normalcy Daniel needs in his freak show of a life.
Until his sexy one night stand turns out to be a freak just like him. A rather badass freak as a matter of fact.
So much for normalcy.
As the temptation to use the power Sarelia gave him grows stronger, Daniel finally gives in and embraces the strength the power gives him. With it, he can do anything.
Well, except raise the dead.
Too bad the power's so damn addicting.


Now today if go over to Ana's blog, you will find that she is holding a contest. I know I love contests and I am sure you all do as well. So click here and go see what she is up to. While you are at it, check out Ana's vlog.

A Few Facts About the Adult Film Industry


I had a great time researching the Adult Film Industry for my latest release, Dream Job, so I wanted to share a few interesting facts with you that stuck out to me *winks*

--- Think guys are aroused by just about anything? It's actually the other way around. Researchers from Northwestern University showed men and women videos of nude actors exercising, masturbating, or having sex. They found that men have pretty clear "targets" — straight dudes got hot looking at ladies, while gay dudes were turned on by men. It's fuzzier for chicks, though. Even if they didn't report feeling in the mood, straight women experienced physical arousal after viewing pretty much any kind of sexual stimuli — guy-on-guy porn, girl-on-girl action… From Cosmopolitan

--- There is a sex scene pay scale that has many variants like experience, etc. I saw many, some outdated, but still, there didn’t seem to be much variance to them. Here is one from Wiki:

Solo Masturbation $500-1000
Girl/Girl $1000-1500
Girl/Girl (anal) $1200-1700
Boy/Girl $1500-2000
Boy/Girl (anal) $2000-2500
Boy/Boy/Girl (double penetration) $2500-3000

--- Florida has passed numerous laws against sex, including gay marriage, paying for phone sex, unnatural acts, etc. Ironically, the state leads the U.S. when it comes to consumers of porn (DVD sales, streaming videos, searches) according to the magazine Men's Health. Topping the list is Orlando, Florida, which is the porn consumption capital of the country.

--- I read, but can’t remember where, sorry, that there are on average 12-18 people on set during filming, and that there are a lot of action “freezes” to get just the right lighting and angle to the shots. Most ‘interesting’ job I read about, and one that Viagra is apparently making non-existent, was that of the Fluffer - a person whose job it was to keep the male porn star's penis erect during breaks between shooting so that it would be ready to go the instant the cameras started rolling. Sounds fun, right?

--- According to WikiPorno

the top ten movie names are:

1. A Few Hard Men

2. A Tale of Two Titties

3. American Hair Pie

4. Anus and Andy

5. Anus the Menace

6. Asspocalypto

7. Backseat Confidential

8. Beaver and Buttface

9. Bi-Curious George

10. Black Cock Down

--- Porn.com ranked in the top ten highest selling domain names, going in 2007 for $950,000. It ranked among names like Fund.com, Diamond.com and of course, Sex.com.

I actually found it fascinating, the good and the bad, in researching the industry. And, in my story, Dream Job, after the research, well I just let my imagination go wild, literally dreaming up a scenario that I would want to be in *all smiles* Check it out…

Blurb:

Kim was tired of still working non-field-related jobs three years after getting her B.A. in Film and Digital Media. After a bad break up, she talks herself into doing something about it and applies for a job in the adult film industry. Thinking she made a mistake – looking at the cheesy posters on the walls while waiting for her interview – she comes close to leaving, taking another cashier job. However, when she catches a glimpse of her boss-to-be and his disheveled dusty blond hair, chocolate brown eyes and tight white t-shirt showing ripped abs above tight torn at the thigh jeans, she is more than intrigued.
Now, between her sexy-as-hell boss man, David, and filming a ménage shoot, Kim is having feelings and thoughts she never thought she would.
Kim begins to realize this just might be her dream job after all.

Spotlight On...Kiki Howell, Mistress of Paranormal Erotica


Welcome to Naughty Nights Press
SPOT LIGHT ON…


Today I am shining my spotlight on an author, who not only knows her Paranormal genre but manages to burn up the pages with hot, passionate erotica as well.
Introducing the Mistress of Paranormal Erotica, Kiki Howell.



Love, Creativity & Magick
 A Steampunk Valentine’s Day Tale
By Kiki Howell
Purchase through All Romance Ebooks, Amazon or Smashwords 
Synopsis

All acts of magick take on shades of gray in the end, especially for Emma, one of four females witches who by birthright belong in the social circles of the privileged upper ten thousand in London. Yet, by rumor of the unknown and the misunderstood, she stands apart, cut by her peers along with her cousins, because they hold a secret—each is gifted with magick.
Their elders had taught them respect for their powers even when mixed with a spanking amount of fanciful mischief. On the other hand, if a lesson was warranted, then white verses black magick could be hard to define. Nowhere was the color of steam more evident than in the matters of justice, a slippery term to define. Yet, they’d made breaking the laws of society their mission. Most of their nights at parties and balls were spent creating a magickal comedy of errors, helping the uptight aristocracy side step their fastidious standards.
Only this year, days before Valentine’s Day, a damnable day for women without suitors, Emma is not quite sure what is happening to her. Something dark and seductive, something not of this world, is luring her, possessing her, and she has no comprehension of what or who the presence really is. But, when he does show his face finally, and she feels him to be a nightwalker, she must fear not only the threat he poses to her blood and to the energy or magick he can suck from her, but also the danger he poses to her heart. After all of these days feeling him, wanting him, she has to wonder if her feelings are just a matter of his compulsion, if she is under this vampire’s own type of magick.
To complicate matters further, the vampire’s propositions are as exciting as they are scandalous, to teach her how to power her magick with the overabundance of sexual energy she bears. But, how he knows such things he remains elusive about. And there is the added attraction that this vampire was a failed inventor in life, one with a basement full of contraptions she finds she can power through the use of her sexual energy. Valentine’s Day seems like it could be all kinds of fun this year now.
Yet, in these days of social unrest and out-of-control creativity, what is a witch to do with a vampire? When Valentine’s Day rolls around, and a secret is revealed, what will be left for her?

At War In The Willows
Book 1
The Vampires Witch
by Kiki Howell


Synopsis

The Willows is a resort town run by vampires, werewolves and witches. Here, their true identities are kept secret from humans, and intimate relations between the individual clans are strictly forbidden.

When it becomes known that the vampire Amberlyn has fallen in love with the werewolf Kane, the tedious line of their co-existence has been crossed. Caught in the crossfire of this revelation, Drake, the vampire clan leader and Amberlyn’s maker, is killed along with an innocent witch. These deaths spark a series of horrific events leading to an all out War In The Willows.

In Book 1, Amberlyn’s vampire brother, Isaac, always one to kick ass first and deal with the consequences later, kidnaps a witch, Winter. He intends to find out what type of retaliation the witch clan is planning against the vampires and werewolves. In doing so, he finds so much more then he bargained for.

By Book 2, Isaac and Winter devise a plan to try to get the Elders of the clans talking peacefully. But, things don’t go as they’d hoped, and the fighting between the clans becomes more devious – deadly. Now, Devin, another vampire of Drake’s making, steps in to help pick up some of the pieces.

When Book 3 begins, it is Devin who hides the biggest secret; he’s in love with a local human. In a moment of desperation – of love – Devin sweeps this human, Sara, away to his home in order to keep her out of harm’s way.

Unexpected close encounters, bodies ripe with need, and situations beyond their control lead to forbidden relationships. Now three vampires, a witch, a werewolf and a human must ride along the edges of the rules. They will attempt once unthinkable romantic entanglements despite all those who oppose their relationships, while fighting for their lives as well.

With the Willows full of violence and bloodshed, meetings and magic amiss, will the clans ever be able to find peace among them again? Or, will this war destroy the Willows?

SMOOTH LIKE LATTE 
by Rawiya.

Naughty Nights Press is proud to announce that 
Smooth Like Latte,
an interracial gay male romance,
 available to purchase from 
All RomanceE-books, Amazon and Smashwords 



SMOOTH LIKE LATTE by Rawiya.

Synopsis:
Brendan Walsh is an uptight business executive of works sun up to sun down in the heart of the Loop in downtown Chicago. Due to his relentless drive to succeed, he doesn’t really allow himself time for fun. His idea of this is sitting at home alone, watching the company profits. Since he stays busy, he doesn’t allow any time to get to know anyone. To make matters worse, Brendan’s homophobic, overbearing father has threatened to write him out the will if he doesn’t do everything he’s asked.
In the building, he meets a man by the name of Davori Jenkins, a happy go lucky guy who serves him a cup of latte just the way he likes it. The attraction between them is real from the start. In a surprise move, Brendan leaves his number along with the tip to spark conversation. From there, they build a friendship over drinks and lunch thus drawing them closer.
However, Brendan still hasn’t come out to his father and fears if he does he’ll lose his financial security under the Walsh umbrella. Will he take the risk so he can have a future with the hunky barista?
Warning: This is an m/m interracial romance. Real romance. Some sappiness is ahead with two very good looking men who are searching for that happy ever after ending.

Excerpt:
“Brendan, you must uphold the family name. Nothing is more important than the Walsh name! Nothing!”
The words of Brendan Walsh’s father, Alexander, rang true, like a menacing alarm in his head every single day. Why did he have to be the son Alexander depended upon most? Could it be because the other Walsh brother was completely useless?
In his father’s eyes, Brendan’s older sibling Brian was a disappointment, all because he didn’t want any part of the Walsh family business. Instead of living off his trust fund and becoming the successive CEO to the Walsh Financial Corporation, he’d opted to follow his dream and become a rock musician. That made Alexander extremely unhappy and because of this, the elder Walsh made changes to his will which took away his portion of the family fortune. Brian didn’t care, though; he said no amount of money could bring him true happiness.
Brendan, on the other hand, did like money and security, but the constant meetings, the traveling, and all the responsibilities of being the boss had started to wear thin. He attended college and went straight to graduate school afterward. Then he became top partner at Walsh. It was a lot of responsibility, but Brendan had been well groomed by his dad, who was adamant about not wanting his younger son to become a “useless fuckup.”
“Ugh…” Brendan restlessly turned over. Opening one eye, he glanced at the clock. Six a.m. Time to get up and head in to the office to make more money for the Walsh Empire. Not wanting to move, he groaned, running his fingers through his short, wavy, brown locks. He’d just gotten his hair cut, and it still felt funny. He’d allowed it to grow past his shoulders, but that had only prompted Alexander’s comment that he should “stop looking like a fag.”
“Damn.” If Alexander only knew. Maybe that was just what the old man needed. To see his son for exactly what he was – a man in the closet who desperately wanted to come out.
Yeah, that’ll be the day.
Pulling up the shades, he squinted his eyes into the daylight; the few stragglers out on the street were probably either coming home from or on their way to work. Or were they returning from Valentine’s Day parties in the city? A part of Brendan wished he were doing just that, especially since he’d spent this particular V Day in his Lake Shore Drive condo, reading and comparing sales figures from the year before. That wasn’t his job: it was someone else’s, but he’d opted to do it himself because that employee had someone to go home to and he didn’t. Truthfully, numbers remained his first love, and he’d never known any other.
While he tried to read over the latest figures the night prior, his father called to get him out of his high-rise condo. “Brendan, I’m at the country club with a bunch of friends. You should come by.”
The last thing Brendan wanted was to be around his father on the most romantic day of the year. “No thanks Dad, I’m real busy.”
“Oh c’mon, son,” Alex slurred his words and cut him off. “There’s some pretty ladies here and lots of Scotch. You could walk outta here with the next Misses Walsh. Besides, you need to give me a grandchild.”
Completely annoyed, Brendan rolled his eyes and sighed. “No thanks, Dad.” He promptly hung up the phone.
Oh, he’ll get me for that later.
Too bad I can’t be that bold all the time.
“Pfft.” Dejected, he shook his head and stretched his arms while he strolled slowly to the bathroom. Flicking on the lights, he winced. The coffee-colored marble floor was cold on his bare feet. He rubbed his eyes, thinking how nice it would be to crawl back under the covers and blow off work, but he knew Alexander would bitch if he didn’t show up.
A hot shower was what he needed to warm him up and get him into his daily routine. Turning the small silver knobs, he took off his boxers and stepped in, allowing the hot water to cascade down his body. He ducked his head under the hot spray and exhaled, feeling the warm drops hit his scalp. Several ran down his face, both soothing him and waking him up, as he wanted. In minutes, the sound of whiny saxophones and soft piano melodies filled the bathroom. Like an alarm, he’d set smooth jazz music to play while he showered because he loved hearing it when he woke up.
Brendan wished there was someone to share these morning moments with him. “Maybe someday, I’ll get up the nerve.” He rubbed his newly cut hair and leaned against the marble wall. “When Brendan, fucking when?”

She Wields a Mean Whip...


Happy Thursday from Cassandre Dayne. Some call me wicked while others call me willful. The truth is I have many sides to me from playful to naughty, sensuous to gentle and yet what most like to see me as is a Domme. I tend to write about more characters in which the women are subs in the relationship. Perhaps that's because I have a bent personally that is more submissive. However I do look good in leather with a whip in my hand. But that's an entirely different story. Or is it?

In penning Bad Things - the trilogy, I decided I would take the concept of exploring my rather dark Domme side out for a sexy spin. Anastasia is a tough woman, having lived in a man's tough world and owning what some would call a deprived business deep in the heart of the conservative and very religious South. Bad Things is a club catering to every level of kink you can imagine and the customers might just surprise you. She's also a member of a Were Tiger Pride, and one being targeted by not only human monsters but those who truly do go snarl in the night. Releasing today, I hope you enjoy a taste of Bad Things - Hunger. Oh and be very, very afraid...

BAD THINGS - HUNGER


At precisely eight-thirty Anastasia heard Jasmine’s lilting voice as it floated into her office. The girl was always enthusiastic with new clients but she seemed somehow a bit more so tonight. Chuckling, she thought about just how hard she was going to whip the girl for her desires. She waited as patiently as she could as she heard Jasmine follow through with her routine, showing the newbie around their office. While only accepted clients were allowed to see the rooms behind the majority of the closed doors, they were allowed access to the quaint session rooms and the main salon which was adored with a fully stocked bar, plush seating, a computer the guests could use and of course all the media they could handle.
It was her way of keeping them playing in the sandbox for longer. The information Devon found on Trenton proved to be more than useful. He had a colorful past and one might say a touch dubious. He certainly had shied away from his previous life marrying an upper crust socialite from one of the best families in Charleston. Anastasia couldn’t help but wonder what mommy and daddy would say about their son-in-law’s admitted hungers.
She licked her lips and stood, smoothing down her silk dress. She’d changed into red, her signature and power color, and made sure she wore her tallest heels. Anastasia was after all the woman in ultimate charge. Even if Christian Sowers believed he was. As she heard Jasmine’s voice edging closer, Anastasia turned off the main light so only the ambient glow of her torch lamps filtered throughout the room. The effect always seemed to sooth clients who were at minimum nervous at first. Tonight she suspected Trenton Parker would be cool as a cucumber as least in the beginning.
She knew all too well that the sessions not only titillated but terrified many. Each man and woman tended to be very honest on their applications and sometimes brutally so. They were asked key questions to really learn what were the truths and lies and in almost a hundred percent of the cases she was very accurate. Unfortunately many weren’t truly ready to have all their fantasies fulfilled, which became a constant worry.
“Mistress Anastasia. We have our expected visitor.” Jasmine’s voice carried into the room.
Anastasia turned slowly and instantly knew the stunning man was the very one she and Kristoff tracked a few nights before by the combination of his scents alone. He was indeed breathtaking with his shoulder length dark hair and either Italian or Puerto Rican decent. She could easily see why Jasmine was as smitten with the man as she was. There was something about his ruby full lips, made for kissing, that even gave her a thrill. Gazing down the length of his body she could sense he was a man of style and enjoyed living the finer aspect of life. He was also nervous given the heightened level of testosterone he was giving off. “Mr. Parker.” She knew she had the advantage with the dimmer lights but she could see every hair and every tic he made given her keen vision.
“Trenton, yes,” he said as he gazed around the office.
“That will be all for now, Jasmine and thank you. I’ll let you know my decision in a few minutes after I’ve had time to ask Mr. Parker some questions.”
“Very good, Mistress.” Jasmine nodded before retreating back. She gave Trenton a cautious look before closing the door.
Trenton let out his breath and turned to face Anastasia. “She’s as beautiful up close as I imagined she’d be.”
“She is a true delight and I couldn’t do this without her. I understand you’re an attorney and work in the building?”
“Yes, I’m a partner in Braxton, Parker and Sampson.”
“Please come and sit so we can talk more comfortably. Can I offer you a drink?” Anastasia purred as she patted the top of the leather sofa.
“That would be wonderful,” he said quietly as he moved to the couch.
“What would you like, Mr. Parker and please, there’s no need to be nervous.”
“Who said I was nervous?’
“Your shaking legs and the musky scent of your wafting desire.”
Choking, Trenton eased down onto the sofa and wrung his hands. “Okay, you got me and I’ll have whatever very strong alcohol you might have.”
Anastasia smiled. There was something refreshing about the man and for some reason she didn’t think he had any idea about what he was involved in. “Johnny Walker on the rocks?”
The drink of choice seemed to surprise him. Nodding, he grinned, instantly more comfortable. “A woman with discerning tastes.”
“You have no idea, Mr. Parker.” Pouring the drinks she sighed as she handed him a glass. The instant their fingers touched she could tell he was more than hot and bothered and also that he was under duress. “I read from your information you’re married and yet curious about several kinky aspects. Have you talked with your wife?”
“No… yes…” Trenton laughed as he wiped his face. “She’s a sweet and lovely woman but I don’t think my particular needs encourage a strong relationship.”
“Your particular needs. That’s said like you’re ashamed.” Anastasia moved to the couch and as she sat down she kept her eyes pinned on him. The man was nervous as hell.
“I’m not… well, I certainly don’t want to post my desires out on the Internet. That’s for sure.” Taking a sip of his drink he looked at anything and everything but Anastasia.
“Wanting to experience kinky acts isn’t weird or depraved. In truth, my belief is that only few people will allow themselves to fully admit and certainly try what they long for. So many are stymied by what they perceive as a failure of their make up simply because they want something a bit more erotic than perhaps most. But I can assure you that there are few who don’t crave something more than vanilla sex.” As she crossed her legs she watched his expression carefully. Trenton was indeed soul-searching. This might be part of his job but the man wanted much more than what he was getting in the bedroom at home.
“That’s an interesting way of putting it. You’re probably right.”
“Probably? I studied with some of the finest sex therapists in the country and the one thing they taught me is that everyone hides behind a mask. The few who allow their inner beast, if you will, out are much happier,” Anastasia said, choosing her words carefully. Testing him, she couldn’t see a glimmer of any recognition in his eyes, which might allow her time to figure out what was going on.
Nodding, he swirled his drink and finally stole a glance in her direction. “That’s true. That’s very true. I love my wife so please don’t get me wrong but I need more and I wish I was the kind of man who could tell her.”
“And you think Bad Things is going to help you?”


So tell me darling children, do you think I resemble Anastasia just a tiny bit?
