I didn’t blog yesterday as I had a day off with my DH. I’m back today, have you missed me?
Things are going really well for my Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series. Covet has been the book on everyone’s lips and it has been receiving some fairly amazing reviews. The Snow fan club is growing each day and Snow is preening himself like a male peacock. He has to look good for the ladies. I swear this guy is shooting you all down with nothing but a sexy growl and a wink.
Of course, with all the love for Covet comes all the high expectations. And with those high expectations comes a heck of a boat load of pressure. I find myself panicking about Crave and whether it’s going to be good enough for everyone after the hotness that was Covet. The book is hot, make no mistake, and chocked full of forbidden love between the elite vampire Callum and the sassy werewolf Kristina, but I’m still worrying about it. I’m sure when I read it over for its final proof, I will be fine with it and will relax a little.
With Seduce, the third book, wrapped up in first draft, I decided to plunge straight into writing Enslave today. Enslave is now standing at 7700 words and I had to force myself to stop writing so I could do my other work for the day. That’s surely a good sign. There’s already a fantastic dynamic between Andreu (Javier’s younger brother) and the fae heroine Varya. Yes, you read that right. She’s a fae. She’s a succubus in fact.
Varya is the first fae I have written and I’m having fun with her so far, meddling with the whole myth behind her species and making it my own. There are other fae in the series, and in particular the next book I have planned. I’ve found I really like mixing in fae with werewolves, vampires and other supernatural creatures.
I had always been reluctant to toy with fae before because I felt that everyone was doing fae so well that I wouldn’t stand a chance, but I couldn’t resist bringing the fae into this series. I really hope you like my take on them!
My 7700 word start on Enslave has boosted my year’s word count to 52700 though, so I’m already 13.2% of the way towards my target!
Here are some snippets of the amazing reviews that Covet received recently.
“I loved this novella and was able to finish it over the course of two nights. Believe me when I say it was hard to put down that first night! Felicity Heaton’s first erotic story is one that shouldn’t be missed and I am already counting the days until Crave, the second book in her Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance series hits digital shelves in March!”
— Night Owl Reviews, 4.5 Star Top Pick! (Read the full review)“Can Felicity Heaton write the steamy or can Felicity Heaton write the steamy? … Fast paced and entirely too fun, Felicity Heaton’s vampires are well-fleshed out and will leave you waiting impatiently for the next book in the series.”
— Reading the Paranormal, 5 Stars! (Read the full review)“This was a very interesting new brand of vampire for me. Set in present day, yet it had an almost historical feel with the various levels within the vampire social hierarchy. There are also many rules that must be followed in their world. I truly feel that rules are supposed to be broken. Javier and Lilah feel the same way I do about rules… Their sex scenes are highly erotic. There is a spicy blend of voyeurism, mild bondage, mild dominance and some very intense sex scenes. The performances of the theatre are an added bonus to the flames that Javier and Lilah are throwing.”
— The Jeep Diva, 5 Stars! (Read the full review)“With a unique plot and some of the most erotic scenes I’ve read (and I’ve read my fair share of them!), Covet is not for the shy but definitely for the smut lover. If you’re new to Ms. Heaton’s work, this book will make her an instant favorite, and if you’re just looking for a spicy novella to get you out of a reading funk, this book will no doubt do the trick!”

Theyâ€™ve burned for each other for two years, the forbidden attraction between them growing each night. Now resisting the sinful desires of their hearts is becoming impossible.
Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his.
Lilah has fought her desire for Javier since arriving at his theatre as a servant but each glance he has stolen, his eyes promising pleasure that will satisfy her longing for him, has chipped away at her defences and she can no longer deny her need and her forbidden feelings for the powerful vampire male.
When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilahâ€™s master keep them apart forever?
