1 Night Stand Birthday Bash: author Ann Mayburn on getting in touch with your inner animal
Please help me welcome back saucy, sexy author Ann Mayburn as she celebrates Decadent Publishing's 200th 1 Night Stand series book release!
One of the best things about writing for Decadent Publishing’s 1 Night Stand series has been the opportunity to explore many different kinds of worlds, including one of my favorite paranormal creatures, the shifter.

Micro-Review: The Perfect Sub (a 1Night Stand short) by Jayson Locke
This short has a lot of great things going for it... strong male characters who push for what they want, rich emotional depth with layers of history to help sell it, and an intense BDSM experience that is neither too technical and obtuse nor too flowery or feminine or over-the-top. I also loved that the story doesn't end with the morning after and gives the reader a satisfying epilogue that makes you want to keep reading about these guys in their own series. Excellent short read and totally worth the investment (money, time, and emotion!). Loved it! Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys male/male bdsm erotica with the Master/sub dynamic.

Ten days of freedom. That’s all Fate had allotted me each year. In the streets of Venice, I could walk among them. Mingle. Belong.

For ten days, it didn’t matter.
Until I met her.

Review: The Vampire’s Plaything (A The Edge short) by Ashlynn Monroe
Zoe Brownstone is overwhelmed with emotion and memories when she finds herself kidnapped for Hayden Beck, the master vampire. But the emotions aren’t as terrifying as you might think, and the memories are from a life that can’t be hers. Zoe is chained up and brought face-to-face with Hayden when she realizes that this is the man that has stalked her dreams for years… and then she meets Liam, who has stalked her nightmares. The Vampire’s Plaything is worth a look!
