Overview

In Delfidian, a future world where females rule and mate only with each other, desiring sex with males is seen as a throwback to ancient times.

But Aurora likes having sex with him, a lot, and Sullivan secretly enjoys it too. Their relationship is passionate, fast blossoming into romance. But that’s not allowed! If the true nature of their affair was discovered, they would be arrested and treated for insanity, their minds scanned and cleaned.

Meet the Author

Award-winning British author Saskia Walker first dreamed of writing her own stories when she discovered a handful of romance novels stashed away in her school library. An avid reader, she lapped up the adventures and the life-affirming emotion of these stories, but always felt dismay when the bedroom door closed the reader out. She vowed that in her stories all the passion would be right there on the page.

Saskia began writing in the late 1990s. By that time she'd traveled the world, gained a B.A. in art history, an M.A. in literature and the visual arts and she'd worked in several diverse careers - but the stories in her head simply had to be written.

It is the combination of potent eroticism and strong storytelling that has become the leading characteristic of Saskia's work. Fascinated with seduction, she loves to explore how and why we get from saying "hello" to sharing our most intimate selves in moments of extreme passion. She writes across genres, often incorporating elements of history, the paranormal and the fantastic in her work. As well as many novel and novella-length publications, Saskia's work has now appeared in more than one hundred international anthologies. Her erotica has also been featured in several international magazines including Cosmo, Penthouse, Bust, and Scarlet. Her novels DOUBLE DARE and RAMPANT both won Passionate Plume awards and her writing has twice been nominated for a RT Book Reviews Reviewers' Choice Award.

Nowadays Saskia is happily settled in Yorkshire in the north of England, with her real-life hero, Mark, and a houseful of felines.

Read an Excerpt

More than that, awareness of what was happening between them was edging into her consciousness; he could almost see it happening. When she looked at him with that seemingly innocent and eternal question in her emerald eyes, images of her body writhing beneath his sprang into his mind. He smashed his fist against the locker door. "Aurora." The taste and sound of her name on his tongue wired him into a moment captured in time, a moment that was entirely theirs--the first time they came, together, their bodies locked, her cunt melting while she begged him to come just as he did so, the relief in her eyes as he breathed her name and spilled.

The memory left him unbearably hard. He reached for his zipper and eased out his distended cock, stroking it in one fist, the other still resting against the door of his locker. With practiced movements, he sought relief. The head of his cock was dark with blood, frustration manifesting itself in raw need. His fist was no replacement for the feel of her soft warmth, though, the maddening grip of her cunt. It sent him close to release every time she clenched onto his cock. He wanted to be wedged inside her; he wanted to hear the sound of her pleasured moans as he shot his load into her womb.

Jacking harder, faster, he came in his fist, groaning, deep and fraught. As he steadied himself, he cursed The System for matching them, even though it was the furthest thing from the truth in his heart. Their connection was forbidden, abnormal. It was so wrong, but so undeniably right.
