It’s my pleasure to host my dear author friend, Juliette Banks, who has an exciting new release. It’s a real sizzler; perfect for bedtime reading! Juliette’s stories are influenced by her early love of Jane Austen and the Brontes, Thomas Hardy and D H Lawrence, combining elements of romance with the elicit thrills of spanking and bondage.
She admits, “I wasn’t really exposed to erotic literature until my late thirties, when I discovered The Story of O, which introduced me to an understanding of erotica. Bear in mind that I grew up before computers and Kindles, and such material was not easily available. It had quite a profound effect on me, and led me to other writers, such as Anais Nin. I realised that some of my erotic thoughts were, in fact, in others’ minds too. It was intensely liberating.”
Juliette’s writing is also influenced by her love of film. “I’ve watched quite a lot of French and Italian cinema over the years, which seems edgier than English or American film-making. Their portrayal of relationships, sex and emotions is far more intense. I don’t always have to have a ‘happy ever after’ either, which is almost anathema to Hollywood. I can remember leaving the cinema after watching Dr Zhivago many years ago, with tears streaming down my face because of the sad ending, and yet I adored the film. However, writing for my current publisher, a HEA is obligatory. I can’t have my heroine throwing herself off a cliff!”
She adds, “Cinema has been an important influence, alongside books, as my window on to the world. I used to daydream about escaping my mundane teenage life. Perhaps, that’s reflected in the escapism of my stories.”
Juliette’s latest release is ‘Remembering Roxy‘, published by Blushing Books
Roxy is a modern, independent, kick-ass woman, who hides a secret desire—she likes a bit of spice in the bedroom. Will she ever meet a man who can satisfy her, without expecting her full submission?
Oliver loves some kink in his life, but doesn’t want to be tied down by a possessive woman. He also has a secret life that doesn’t bode well for a long-term relationship.
When they meet, the attraction is immediate and electrifying. However, Oliver’s secret life threatens not only their relationship but his life.
I couldn’t see him, but I knew he would be sitting in the leather chair, probably sipping on a glass of whisky. He liked these little displays of mine. He liked choreographing them and controlling my movements. He liked his power over me and I handed it to him voluntarily.
“Move that sexy little arse of yours. Show me what you can do. Be my private dancer. Make me want to fuck you without mercy.”
I swayed and undulated my hips, running my hands up and down my body, knowing his excitement would be mounting until he could resist me no longer. How I loved to torment him. And how he made me pay, deliciously, for it.
I stopped immediately. He reached out and ran his palm down the curve of my back and over my bottom. “Bend over.” I did as he asked and was rewarded by his hand slipping between my thighs and stroking my pussy.
“You’re so wet already. So sexy. You’re my little slut, aren’t you?”
From him, that was a term of endearment. The more I was his slut the more he loved it. His touch made me groan with need. He grabbed me by the arm and pulled me down, over his lap. As my feet left the floor the shoes fell off with a clatter and lay at his feet. They wouldn’t be needed further tonight. My behind would be lathered and then I would be fucked – hard – just as I loved it.
