What Other Authors are Saying About The King's Pleasure:

“King’s Pleasure pushed all my buttons. The vulnerable heroine, and the perverse and powerful king who you suspect still has a golden heart… A hot, well-imagined fantasy world and sexy, touching emotional interaction. This is Happily Ever After for the kinky set!” – Annabel Joseph, author of Odalisque.

“Another amazing read from Kitty Thomas. One thing I can count on from this author is to create a read unlike anything else on the market. From fantasy to sci-fi to contemporary, her books always defy categorization. Whatever the setting, when I want the real deal when it comes to exploring master/slave relationships, I turn to Kitty’s stories. With work that’s powerful, sexy and intense, she never fails to deliver.” ~ Cari Quinn, author of Provoke Me

    Amazing Erotic Fantasy World

    The King's Pleasure is the third novella in Kitty Thomas' erotic fairy tale collection. This novella was my favorite one out of all of them. It pushed every one of my dark, erotic, kinky buttons.

    I know I'm in for a sexy treat when opening up a Kitty novel. I almost always love her heroes and this story was no exception. Niall was a dominant & dangerous hero with a soft spot for his slave. Abby was a strong heroine who would endure anything to prove her love and loyalty to her master.

    Living her whole life on the fringes of the kingdom, Abby is ignorant of the hedonistic culture of the King's court. After deciding to take Abby as his slave, Niall begins to teach her the carnal ways of the Himeros society. She gets indoctrinated into the sexually open culture of the kingdom rather quickly as guests start arriving to court and preparations are made for the weekend feasts and festival. And, oh my! What a wicked, sexy festival! Once night falls, children and citizens not wanting to participate in the evening's orgies leave and the debauchery begins. The author joked that she must have been on horny drugs when she wrote the scene and I think she was! It's a very intense erotic scene with lots of dirty explicit activities going on.

    Shortly after the festival the story takes a dark turn when seeds of doubt are planted in Niall's mind regarding Abby's intentions. The latter half of the novella is a bit alarming and tortuous and my heart went out to Abby. I was so caught up in the emotional whirlwind that I worried about how the story would end.

    This was another amazing story from the beautifully erotic imagination of Kitty Thomas. The King's Pleasure is highly recommended for every erotica fan who likes their stories a little dark and their boundaries pushed.
