The ABCs of Erotica

 atasteoflondonFull on Filth by Lucy Felthouse

The things I’ve written have variety. Whether it be word count, genre, pairings or heat level, I always seem to pen different things. It’s not done intentionally, it’s just that I tend to write whatever stories come into my head, unless I’m writing for a specific call for submissions which requires certain word count. What’s also different is that sometimes my erotica is just that, erotica. And sometimes it’s romantic, too. Otherwise known as erotic romance.

I started out penning pure erotica, or full on filth and only started including romance a year or so down the line. But now I love to write both, depending on how the mood takes me.

My latest releases are definitely what you’d call full on filth. And actually, they were both intended to be that way. A Taste of London was written specifically for Ellora’s Cave’s For Men range, which is why I intentionally made it dirtier, sexier and left out the romance. That’s not to say that the line doesn’t allow romance, because that’s not true. It’s just that it focuses on male fantasy and I thought that would be a good excuse to send a couple of young men on an adventure which just happened to be crammed with sexual encounters. It is very naughty, but if a woman wants to read an erotic story without romance, then there’s no reason she shouldn’t choose this one!

Raising the Bar, which is published by Decadent Publishing’s The Edge line, is also pure erotica. Again, romance is allowed in The Edge series, RaisingTheBarbut I just wanted to write a really filthy story. This time, it’s aimed at both men and women, though if I’m honest, I think women will prefer it because there’s a seriously sexy man involved! There’s also a sunny foreign setting and a temporary feel to the whole thing, which allows the characters to throw caution to the wind much more when it comes to getting down and dirty in the bedroom.

So, if you like your stories with full on filth, then A Taste of London and Raising the Bar will definitely heat up your eReader. But if you’re looking for romance, then head to my website and check out some of my other stories—there’s something for everyone, pretty much!


Ryan Stonebridge and his friend Kristian Hurst are heading off on the trip of a lifetime. They’re spending their gap year traveling the world and expect lots of sun, sights and sex. The guys have a couple of days in the English capital before catching the Eurostar to Paris. Unfortunately, a family emergency means that Kristian has to head back home for a while, leaving Ryan to continue the trip alone.

Luckily for Ryan, he’s an attractive guy and there is no shortage of gorgeous women available to help take his mind off Kristian’s family drama.

When Kayleigh takes a gap year before starting University, she decides she’s going to stay away from guys and just concentrate on having fun and experiencing life. That means going through a lot of batteries, but she’s happy and satisfied.

That is, until she gets to Spain on her travels and meets her new co-worker, Luciano. The scorching hot Spaniard soon has Kayleigh’s knickers in a twist— literally—and the time they spend together seriously raises the bar for her sex life. How will any other man ever compare?
