Aphrodite’s Island Series


Her Teddy Bare was recently released  by Carnal Passions, the erotic romance imprint of Champagne Book Group. This is my first erotic romance, but I’m in great company. Her Teddy Bare (a light BDSM e-book with a chuckle) is the third in the Aphrodite’s Island series where guests “experience their most secret dreams and fondest fantasies.” 

The stories are  stand-alones with Aphrodite and her island as common elements. Veteran erotic romance authors contributed Taming of a Sex God (Virginia Nelson) and One Too Many (Arlene Knowell), Books 1 and 2 in the series. All three ebooks are Quick Reads which are a bargain at $.99 each.  Click the graphic or HERE to read excerpts or buy the books which are listed together (thank you to our publisher).  Tomorrow, Her Teddy Bare’s Release & a Story     Rita Bay


My First Erotic Romance: “Her Teddy Bare”

Her Teddy Bare, my first erotic romance, is out today. It’s one of Champagne’s Carnal Passions Quick Reads – part of the Aphrodite’s Island series. I knew it was hot (light BDSM with a chuckle), but I almost fell out of my chair when I saw those FOUR flames. Here’s the cover and blurb. Click the cover below or HERE to read the excerpt or buy ($.99).

After dumping her unfaithful fiancé, Diana Harper accepts an invitation “to attend a private even t at Miss A’s island retreat to experience your most secret dreams and fondest fantasies.” Miss A gives “Teddy” to Diana as an “attendant.” Despite his best efforts, Teddy isn’t a submissive and the skimpy gold thong is ridiculous on a man his size. Although she’s not a domme, Diana plays his game to see where it leads. When Teddy offers her profound passion, the best sex ever, and the prospect of love, will she take a chance on another broken heart?
Theodore Bareston will do whatever it takes to win Diana’s love, even though “whatever” includes wearing a thong and posing nude in chains when Diana’s interest in her art revives. As the sexual tension builds and passions explode, Teddy is determined to convince Diana that he is the only man for her.

Teddy loves to cook and the recipe for the omelette  he cooks  for his Mistress Di is at my blog site, http://ritabay.com/ .  I’m also participating in the Four Seduced Muses’ Caliente Blog Hop. Loads of valuable swag from the Seduced Muses,  more at every one of the 99 participating sites. I’m giving away copies of my books. Stop by my website, register, then jump from there.  Next week, a series.  Rita

Moonday’s Not-so-heroic Hunk in History: Ares

F10_2Aphrodite& Ares PompeiiAphrodite, the Goddess of Love and her lover, Ares, the God of War are pictured in this fresco in Pompeii, Italy. Aphrodite had many lovers and Ares was one of the long-term paramours. Aphrodite/Venus was a frequent subject of the artists of the ancient world. I have a short novella, Her Teddy Bare, which is #3 in the Aphrodite’s Island Series – my first erotic romance. I’m looking for a good Ares image, unfortunately most are modern – especially from the old Hercules show. Kind of like this one. It’s paint on fresco. To produce a fresco, paint is applied to wet plaster that has spread on a wall. While some examples of fresco survives the media itself is susceptible to deterioration over time, destruction by human hands, and to external damage from weathering, floods, or earthquake.

Frescoes survive in Pompeii probably more often than any other site of the ancient world. In 79 AD Pompeii, a small but wealthy town on the Mediterranean south of Naples, was buried under volcanic ash and rocks when Vesuvius erupted. Prior to the eruption the volcano was covered by trees, vineyards, villas, and pastureland and the populace was unaware that they were living on a time bomb. The eruption was totally unexpected and resulted in the death of many of the citizens and the preservation of much of Pompeii in ash and volcanic rock. Consequently, many frescoes – like the one here – were preserved in all their magnificent colors.

Maybe another Ares next week  Rita
