I wrote before about some books HOTTER than Fifty Shades of Grey, and was delighted at the fantastic response from fans...although this did prove to me how much more I had left to read...

Inspired by your suggestions, I boldly plunged further into the dark, exciting world of steamy careful what you wish for!

Obviously this is just a selection (hey, I can't read as fast as you guys, OK?) but here's 5 books that are WAY more sexual than Fifty Shades of Grey...

The Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty

Author: Anne Rice

Who Are Our Christian and Anastasia? Sleeping Beauty and her Prince...but this is nothing like the Disney version!

Choice Quote: 'When I am punished, I shall dread it, and suffer it and understand it and accept it. Beauty, when you accept you will flower in the pain, you will flower in your suffering.'


The Story of O

Author: Pauline Réage

Who Are Our Christian and Anastasia? The main character, O, and her lover René, as well as some other sadists at the Chateau Roissy.

Choice Quote: 'If you do tie her up from time to time, or whip her just a little, and she begins to like it, that’s no good either. You have to get past the pleasure stage, until you reach the stage of tears.'



Author: Zane

Who Are Our Christian and Anastasia? Zoe Reynard and three separate lovers (although she is actually married!)

Choice Quote: 'A woman's sexual obsession will be her downfall...or her liberation.'


Master of the Mountain

Author: Cherise Sinclair

Who Are Our Christian and Anastasia? Rebecca and dominant lodge owner, Logan.

Choice Quote: 'The way he played with her breasts, or just touched her, or ran his hands over her body, made her feel beautiful, Desirable.'


Kushiel's Dart

Author: Jacqueline Carey

Who Are Our Christian and Anastasia? Phèdre, a courtesan in the fantastical semi-medieval world of Terre d'Ange. She takes many lovers.

Choice Quote: 'There is no fulfillment that is not made sweeter for the prolonging of desire.'
