I suspect that those of you who are regular visitors to Chintz already know that I have a bit of a thing for BDSM (No, Jane! Really?!), so it should come as no great surprise to learn that Scene, the collection of sexy, sinful shorts I’ve been working on for the past month or so is, well, a wee bit kinky.

Last Friday, I revealed the cover. Today – and over the coming week – I’d like to tease you a little about what’s lurking behind it. What sorts of stories have I written, exactly? What manner of delicious perviness might you expect to find within? Perhaps the blurb will give you a bit of a clue …


Your cravings.


Your longings.


Your needs.


Your shame.


I see all of you, no matter how hard you try to hide yourself from me. The only question is … who else will?


Four stories, four women, four scenes. Whose submission will you wish was your own?

You may have noticed, dear readers, that things have been rather quiet around here lately. I’ve not been posting quite as frequently as usual and that’s because I’ve made a decision to focus the majority of my time on writing rather than blogging. Trying to maintain a balance between the two has proved somewhat tricky over the past year and, bluntly, I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t have enough hours in the day to do both.

So, what does that mean in real terms? Well, that I’ll still be posting about all the stuff I normally do but less frequently. And, of course, there will be a little more emphasis on the stories I’m working on going forwards. To that end, I’m really, really excited to announce that I have a little collection of shorts in the pipeline, which, all going to plan, should be available to purchase, courtesy of the Zon, in the next week or so. If you’re a fan of voyeurism – with a little side-order of erotic humiliation – then this dirty little number will likely be right up your alley. Do I have a cover? Why, yes! Yes, I do:

Bound for Trouble

I have a tattoo. Okay, it’s not a real one (details, details) but it is pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Yep, thanks to smut goddess and author-stroke-editor extraordinaire Alison Tyler (a.k.a. Trollop with a Laptop), I am officially part of her Bound for Trouble Tattoo Tour, helping promote her tenth bondage-themed anthology for Cleis Press via those three words emblazoned across my stomach. Oh, and I get to hang out with the tour cool kids, such as Tamsin Flowers, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Sommer Marsden and Oleander Plume. (Ah, yes. They’re running for cover even as I type that. Hey, I said they were cool – I didn’t say I was!) Continue reading


Seize Me from the DarknessTitle: Seize Me From the Darkness (Pierced Hearts #4)
Author: Cari Silverwood
Publisher: Smashwords (22 September 2014)
ISBN: 9781310777097
Reviewer: Jane

Tropical location. Seclusion. Beautiful heroine. Exotically-accented Alpha male. Sex. In the hands of most erotic writers, these elements would add up to some sort of romantic encounter. In the hands of Cari Silverwood?

Er, no.

Given the trajectory of the Pierced Hearts series, I had no idea what sort of twisted scenario (and I say that with love, Cari) I was going to find in this latest instalment. It’s been quite the journey. From Klaus the sadistic accountant-cum-slaver in (Take Me, Break Me, Bind and Keep Me) to criminal Chris and quietly corrupt Andreas (Make Me Yours Evermore), the road has been pretty rough and ready.

Not in the brochureTurns out, Seize Me from the Darkness is like the pervert’s version of a Club Med holiday. Gorgeous setting, gorgeous people. Only instead of yoga and tennis on the Sports and Activities list, there’s torture, murder, sadism, and sexual slavery. Participation? Yeah, that’s definitely not optional. And if you get voted off the island? Well, let’s just say that ‘ship’ is also spelled c-o-f-f-i-n. Oh, wait. That’s Survivor. Oh, my God. I’ve just realised that’s exactly what this series is: the seriously dark erotica version of Mark Burnett’s CBS show. Tribe Sadist versus tribe Sub-Whether-I-Want-To-Be-Or-Not. Only with the sadists holding all the cards. And making up all the rules. And pretty much doing whatever the hell they want to the women in their possession. Continue reading

Given to the SavageToday, I have the great pleasure of hosting spanking romance author and friend, Natasha Knight, on my blog. Now, I’ve known Natasha for a while – we’ve drunk many a Martini whilst typing increasingly garbled DM messages about life, sex and writing to one another – but this is the first time I’ve ‘officially’ had her as a Chintz Special Guest Star – cue lights, fireworks and excited fanfare. Shame on me. However, with the somewhat turbulent release of her latest book, Given to the Savage (read on to find out more about what I mean by that), I thought it would be the perfect time to pull her behind the curtain and pepper her with deep, probing and intelligent questions. Oh, all right. Pervy, inappropriate questions. That’s why you visit this blog, right?


Jane: I’m going to let my smutty self jump right in: your favourite sex scene from Given to the Savage and why?

Natasha: I’m laughing. I liked them all…it’s kind of hard to choose just one actually. OK, I’m going with the sex scene where Silas and Rowan are outside of his house very early in their relationship. I’ll try to explain why without giving too much away.

Both Silas and Rowan are forced into this situation and neither is sure of the other. Rowan is a breeder and with the setting as it is it gave me some freedom to write the scene exactly as I wrote it without having to soften or sugar coat anything.

The two are attracted to each other physically, and Silas, although he is portrayed as this mercenary type man – or the reader is made to believe that by some of his earlier actions – he is not, but his struggle comes when he wants to be that, he wants to not care, he wants to do what he has to do in order to get what he’s been promised by The Colony. I think this made quite a few people dislike him actually and this scene is a good example of how he turns his human emotions off in order to alleviate himself of his guilt as he takes Rowan whether willingly or unwillingly.

There’s this line in this scene where Silas says:  “You come every time I fuck you, you’re wet every time I punish you.” He’s trying to dehumanize her, make her into just a breeder in order to make what he is doing ok, even as he knows she is as human as he. I want to say poor Silas as I write this but I know most readers were thinking poor Rowan… This scene is a favorite because it’s hard and it’s raw. Silas is taking, he’s not making love to her, he’s fucking her and he’s showing her he owns her and the fact that what he said is true, that she’s wet ever time he punishes her and that she comes ever time he fucks her, it kind of confuses what happens, makes the situation more difficult in a way.

Some time back, I was participating in an online discussion about various methods of hair removal and what I found to be most effective. This is a topic I know a lot about. (As someone with pale skin and dark hair living in a society that’s increasingly obsessed with removing it from nearly every part of the female body, it’s been part of my consciousness for as long as I can remember.)

I do find it amazing that something that grows so naturally, something that is so normal, has the ability to provoke such strong reactions in people. You only have to visit the very awesome Hairy Legs Club Tumblr blog to see just how many women are struggling to gain acceptance when they don’t conform to the hairless standard.

Family members telling girls that their body hair is ‘unsanitary’ and ‘unclean’ and forcing them to remove it.

Teasing by classmates.

Women who have been walked out on when they have taken off their clothes to have sex and revealed their un-depilated bodies. Continue reading



“Women, female, feminine…. show me what those words mean to you.”

As you may have deduced from the quote above, the Sinful Sunday prompt for this month is ‘All About the Women’. I had a number of ideas for this brief but, in the end, I decided to shoot a picture that reflected facets of me, Jane, and my own personal femininity.

A woman who likes to wear pearls (of all kinds).

A woman who likes to wear skirts and twin-sets (often with something a little less traditional underneath).

A woman who is, well, a woman despite her boyish shape. Continue reading
