More about Kay Jaybee

With a background in history and archaeology, Kay Jaybee should be sat in a dusty university library, translating Medieval Latin criminal records, and writing research documents that hardly anyone would want to read. Instead, tucked away in the South West of England, Jenny Kane writes stories with one hand, while teaching creative writing classes for her company, Imagine…, with the other.


Kay spends most of her time in the local coffee shops, where she wrote the novels, The Perfect Submissive Trilogy – The Perfect Submissive, The Retreat and Knowing Her Place, Making Him Wait, and The Voyeur (Xcite, 2012), as well as the novellas, Wednesday on Thursday,  Not Her Type: Erotic Adventures With A Delivery Man, Digging Deep, and A Sticky Situation.

Kay has also written seven anthologies and over 150 short erotic stories – she also writes mainstream fiction as Jenny Kane and medieval crime as Jennifer Ash

Wednesday on Thursday

WednesdayThere are rumours that the coffee guy has “a thing” about words.

Shrugging off her friend’s concern about the way the man in the cafe stares at her every lunch hour, Wednesday can’t see how his love of words could possibly be hazardous.

The fact is, Wednesday rather enjoys being the centre of an attractive man’s undivided attention. His dark blue eyes alone have provided her with many delicious erotic fantasies, a welcome distraction from the pressures of the real world and a dull job.

It’s totally harmless…

…until there’s an accident with a cup of coffee.

After soaking Wednesday with a hot latte, the coffee guy’s attention suddenly becomes far more enticing—and dangerous.

Drawn into a bizarre world of human behavioural research, where crosswords are used to initiate sexual experiments, Wednesday finds herself driven, not by a desire to further scientific research, but by the need to be rewarded for her hard work by the coffee guy’s captivating research assistant.

A stunning redhead by the name of Thursday…

The Perfect Submissive

The Perfect Submisive - new ropeHidden behind the Fables Hotel’s respectable facade, five specially adapted rooms wait; ready to cater for the kinky requirements of its guests.

When Mrs Peters, the mistress of the hotel’s exclusive entertainment facility, meets the new booking clerk, Jess Sanders, she instantly recognises the young woman’s potential as a deliciously meek addition to her specialist staff. All it will take is a little education.

Under the tutelage of the dominatrix, Miss Sarah, Jess learns to cope with her unexpected training schedule, the increasingly erotic chill she experiences each time she survives a new level of correction, and a truly sexy exercise routine.

Temporarily distracted from her intimidating rule over Fable’s top floor by an enigmatic artist, Mrs Peters begins to plan how she can secure his obedient assistance, in grooming Jess into the perfect submissive…

More About K D Grace/Grace Marshall

Voted ETO Best Erotic Author of 2014, and a proud member of The Brit Babes, K D Grace believes Freud was right. In the end, it really IS all about sex, well sex and love. And nobody’s happier about that than she is, otherwise, what would she write about?

When she’s not writing, K D is veg gardening. When she’s not gardening, she’s walking. She walks her stories, and she’s serious about it. She and her husband have walked Coast to Coast across England, along with several other long-distance routes. For her, inspiration is directly proportionate to how quickly she wears out a pair of walking boots. She loves mythology. She enjoys spending time in the gym – right now she’s having a mad affair with a pair of kettle bells. She loves to read, watch birds and do anything that gets her outdoors.

KD has erotica published with Totally Bound, SourceBooks, Xcite Books, Harper Collins Mischief Books, Mammoth, Cleis Press, Black Lace, Sweetmeats Press and others.

Toys for Boys Blurb:

Boys with ToysAlpha nerd Will Charles teams up with Caridoc ‘Doc’ Jones in a coast to coast walk across England reviewing outdoor gift suggestions for the Christmas edition of Toys for Boys—an online magazine dedicated to the latest gadgets to tickle a man’s fancy. Will is recording their adventures with the latest smart phone technology. Doc is reviewing the latest outdoor gear. The two quickly discover the great outdoors provides even better toys for boys, toys best shared al fresco, toys that, in spite of Will’s great camera work, will never be reviewed in Toys for Boys.

In The Flesh Blurb:

kdgrace-itf-finalWhen Susan Innes comes to visit her friend, Annie Rivers, in Chapel House, the deconsecrated church that Annie is renovating into a home, she discovers her outgoing friend changed, reclusive, secretive, and completely enthralled by a mysterious lover, whose presence is always felt, but never seen, a lover whom she claims is god. As her holiday turns into a nightmare, Susan must come to grips with the fact that her friend’s lover is neither imaginary nor is he human, and even worse, he’s turned his wandering eye on Susan, and he won’t be denied his prize. If Susan is to fight an inhuman stalker intent on having her as his own, she’ll need a little inhuman help.

Tips to Help You Make the Most Out of Reading Erotica

By K D Grace & Kay Jaybee

Read Erotica Surrounded by Your Fav Sex Toys

KD: Whenever possible, read erotica with your feet up, surrounded by your favourite sex toys. This will remind you of the versatility of erotica. If you’re in it to play, well you already ready! If you’re in it for a good read, you’ve assumed the most comfy, readerly position. If you’re in it for both, it’s a great way to practice multi-tasking.

KJB: Of course- when we say toys, we are not talking cuddly bears here!

KD: Yeah! Right! Cuddly bears *Sniggers behind fingers*

2. Read Erotica in Public

KD: Never miss an opportunity to read erotica in a public place. With the new subtle covers and with eReaders, only YOU will know how much fun you’re having, and you’ll be having a lot more fun for being naughty in public.

KJB: It is great to read on the bus or tube- there is so much salacious pleasure to gain from doing anything in secret. Who said the process of reading itself shouldn’t be sexy!

Share the Erotica Pleasure

KD: Erotica is twice as much fun when you share it. Try taking turns reading it out loud to your lover and enjoy the heatwave!

KJB: And of course, if you both simply want to listen to keep those hands free, there are always audiobooks!

KD: Oh yes! Aural pleasure at its technological best!

Remember – Erotica is Fantasy!

KD: Lock your inhibitions away when you read erotica. Remember, it’s total fantasy, a fantastic opportunity to get hot and bothered over some totally different kink. It’s a chance to be sexually adventurous safely.

KJB: After all, when you’re in the world created by an erotica writer, you can be anyone you want to be!

Relish the Experience

KD: Enjoy! The erotica experience is where the written word and the human body collide with deliciously sizzling results. Take full advantage of the sizzle and have a great time!

Come to an Erotic Book Reading

KJB: So when you come to a Sh! reading, how can you make the most of the experience? Well, grab a glass of fizz, and let your eyes wander over all the beautiful toys and books on offer…then while you’re listening to the stories, you can contemplate if any of the playthings you’ve seen on the shelves, might be nice to accompany some more of the tale once you get home to read it yourself!

KD: And that glass of fizz is extremely important because it’s thirsty work listening to naughty stories surrounded by titillating toys!

KJB: If this is your first visit to sex shop, then fear not! Walking into a shop that focuses on sex can be scary the first time- but it isn’t a frightening place at all. We are a friendly bunch- look at us- just ordinary folk – who just happen to have over the top imaginations!

KD: And the Sh! Ladiez with their lovely smiles are absolutely the go-to-girls for any questions you have. Or for a caffeine filled cuppa, or a top-up to your fizz.

KJB: So why not come along- sit back, loosen your corset (although not too much, because a little discomfort rubs well with a little pleasure), nibble a cup cake, sip that fizz, and open your ears, and let our naughty words work their magic!

KD: Throw in the odd bit of spanking (only as needed, of course) and a night of readings at Sh! is a feast for all the senses!
