More About the Author

"You can have me for as long as your money burns."

This is a quote from notorious nineteenth century courtesan Cora Pearl, or so I am led to believe by the magazine article which inspired the story The Rake, originally published in the early 'nineties. It was one of many, the product of years of reading and writing, purely for private entertainment, but The Rake was expanded to become a novel, and when asked for a pen name I chose Aishling Morgan. More precisely, I had a few minutes to make my choice and quickly came up with something that sounded vaguely Celtic, vaguely romantic and might be male or female. As it turns out, Aishling is very rare indeed as a male name, but then at the time I had no idea that The Rake would be the first of many books, more than thirty in all.

Aishling Morgan is not my only pseudonym by any means, and I've now had over 100 books published, mainly novels, but also short story collections and a little non-fiction. Aishling Morgan is the name I use for my most imaginative work, done for the love of writing and of erotica, which has been my metier since long before I'd considered it as a profession. I've also been involved with the UK fetish scene since the early days, which has provided plenty of background knowledge and inspiration.

The Aishling Morgan books are diverse, with a wide variety of settings and characters, while I aim to provide sufficient plot to make each story worthwhile in its own right. Their erotic content is also highly diverse but tends to focus on power play and exotic sex, sometimes very exotic, and always an integral part of the story.

The Rake was my first published novel, but is the second book of my flagship series -

The Truscott Saga - historical erotica tracing the history of the depraved Truscott family from the mid eighteenth century onwards. The stories are bawdy erotic romps, each delivered in the style of the times and lavishly supplied with characters from the colourful to the truly outlandish. All the stories are well researched and rich with historical detail, while several are erotic pastiches of famous literary works of the time.

Demonic Congress is a tale of jealousy, lust and bizarre behaviour set on Dartmoor in the eighteenth century.

The Rake follows the story of the dashing but distinctly perverse Henry Truscott as he woes and wins the beautiful Eloise de la Tour Romain Capet, spanking and sodomising her along the way.

Purity tells the story of the Truscotts as they swindle and fornicate their way to a fortune.

Velvet Skin blends horror and erotica in a story as depraved as it is sinister.

Conceit and Consequence moves the Truscott family on a generation in a gentle tale of romance and rivalry, fornication and flagellation.

The Old Perversity Shop finds Little Nell as Dickens never imagined her, eighteen, buxom and in serious trouble as she flees the dwarfish villain Quilty.

Beastly Behaviour exposes the savage and debauched truth being the legend of the black hound of Dartmoor.

Portrait of a Disciplinarian sees Stephanie "Stiffy" Truscott in conflict with a sadistic rival, six spanking aunts, any number of randy rustics and a gigantic pig.

Poppy's Pin-Ups follows the adventures of Stephanie's young brother Henry, as a Lancaster pilot in 1946, with everything from burlesque to bigamy, cabaret to camels.

The Maiden Saga is erotic fantasy in the classic style, with a group of barbarian heroines making their way in a world full of goblins and trolls, pirates and slavers, each and every one intent on the girls' precious virtue. More than slightly tongue-in-cheek, this has nevertheless become my most popular series and now includes a role playing game. There are four titles, Maiden, Captive, Innocent and Princess.

The Nich Mordaunt Series - paranormal erotica based around the occultist Nich Mordaunt and a cabal of witches.

Deep Blue. Sun, sea, sand, sex and a monstrous octopus God. The perfect beach read.

Satan's Slut. An orgy of the erotic occult, culminating in the definitive black mass.

Natural Desire, Strange Design. Dark acts and darker sex in a race to unearth the secrets of a sex cult.

Cruel Shadow. When a travelling salesman picks up a girl he gets a great deal more than he bargained for. One to read on the road.

Tempting the Goddess. Pagan rituals danced naked in the woods, voyeurism, corruption and cruelty in a heady, intriguing mixture.

The Cream Series - specialist historical erotica with a kinky, milky twist.

Devon Cream is the first novel of the Cream Trilogy. Buxom beauties, strapping farm lads and a devious aristocrat with a penchant for breast milk, this is the rural England of an erotic nightmare on Stilton cheese.

Peaches and Cream is the second novel of the Cream Trilogy. A tale of the 'twenties packed full of debutantes, beautiful inverts and lusty rustics, all centred on the secret of "vital essence" and it's bizarre method of production.

Cream Tease is the third novel the Cream Trilogy. WW2 and dairy products are rationed, which would be a problem were the not for the strange apparatus in the old shed and the rumours of what used to go on in the village.

Scarlet Gothic Erotica - dark, intense stories in a semi-historical, religious setting, these are tales of cruelty and passion, extremes of emotion and grotesque sexual extravagance. You have been warned. There are three titles,
Whipping Girl and Scarlet Vice.

Fantasy Erotica Series - highly evolved, specialist fantasy erotica set in a future world where humans have been blended with tigers, pigs and more.

Tiger, Tiger follows the fortunes of tigranthrope Tian-Sha in a piece of highly evolved, specialist fantasy erotica set in a future world where humans have been blended with tigers, pigs and more. This is not an ordinary erotic novel.

Pleasure Toy continues the story of tigranthrope Tian-Sha and the city of Suza in a piece of highly evolved, specialist fantasy erotica set in a future world where humans have been blended with tigers, pigs and more.

Single Titles

Wenches, Witches, Strumpets is a collection of short stories in which Aishling Morgan gives full rein to what is perhaps the most vivid and peculiar imagination in the world of erotic writing. Beware though, because very little is taboo.

Stripgirl. Artist Sarah Shelley is shy and reserved, the exact opposite of her creation, the glamorous Parisienne Celeste de Musigny, but when she travels to the French capital for inspiration she finds that her creation has taken on substance and is not at all pleased.

Most Buxom follows the travails of the hapless Daniel, a landlord who decides to rent his house out to female students in the hope of some naughty encounters but gets a great deal more than he bargained for when they decide to make him their slave.

Uniform Dolls was written specifically with admirers of women in uniform in mind. Whatever your preference, from the opening encounter with a beautiful air hostess, you'll find it described in the loving detail only possible for a true enthusiast.

Slave to the Machine is an elaborate, part virtual fantasy, following the trials and tribulations of singer Melody J as she suffers the consequences of her own vivid imagination.

Lastly, there are Naughty! and How to be Bad, my two guides to the delights of fetish and sex, written with the help of thirty years experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Erotic Romp! 19 Jun 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Aishling Morgan is amongst the best of today's writers of erotic fiction, and this book is one of her best works. It tells of the rivalry between two dominant men, one motivated by paganism, the other, Anderson Croom, by greed, both set on obtaining the legacy of a black magician of an earlier generation. Each man has acquired a strong-willed submissive female accomplice, but in Croom's case this doesn't deter him from exercising his painful domination on every attractive female that he encounters as he seeks his treasure. The occult content of the story enhances rather than dominates the tale, which involves many enjoyable twists and turns as the two men follow the coded mystery trail. The book is both amusing and interesting, and there are many stimulating scenes in which Croom's conquests come to accept his will.

Natural Desire, Strange Design ~ Aishling Morgan
When Julian Blackman, pantheist and cult leader, died in 1979 his daughter Hecate (now Lady Chealingham) became the sole beneficiary of his estate, Brooke House. His intention was for Hecate to take over the manor which was being used as the cult’s headquarters and follow in his footsteps as leader. She was having none of it and disbands the cult. Although she kept her father’s sacaralia and library intact for several years, she suddenly decided to auction it off. Among the items to be auctioned were believed to be a key to the Blackman’s hidden inheritance, originally meant for Hecate’s eyes only.
Fascinated by the Blackman Legacy and a pagan himself, Nick Mordaunt decides to go to the auction and purchase these objects. However rumours that the late Julian Blackman’s possessions contained clues to hidden wealth had spread, attracting more interest than Nick had hoped. It would seem everyone was after a piece of the action.
Enter Anderson Croom, a pompous, sexually domineering character who wants the Blackman fortune for himself. Unfortunately both Nick and Anderson secure themselves some of the Blackman’s belongings, but as the legacy states, combining these objects should reveal further instructions to help pinpoint the location of Blackman’s hidden loot.

Natural Desire, Strange Design ~ Aishling Morgan

When Julian Blackman, pantheist and cult leader, died in 1979 his daughter Hecate (now Lady Chealingham) became the sole beneficiary of his estate, Brooke House. His intention was for Hecate to take over the manor which was being used as the cult's headquarters and follow in his footsteps as leader. She was having none of it and disbands the cult. Although she kept her father's sacaralia and library intact for several years, she suddenly decided to auction it off. Among the items to be auctioned were believed to be a key to the Blackman's hidden inheritance, originally meant for Hecate's eyes only.

Fascinated by the Blackman Legacy and a pagan himself, Nick Mordaunt decides to go to the auction and purchase these objects. However rumours that the late Julian Blackman's possessions contained clues to hidden wealth had spread, attracting more interest than Nick had hoped. It would seem everyone was after a piece of the action.

Enter Anderson Croom, a pompous, sexually domineering character who wants the Blackman fortune for himself. Unfortunately both Nick and Anderson secure themselves some of the Blackman's belongings, but as the legacy states, combining these objects should reveal further instructions to help pinpoint the location of Blackman's hidden loot. It soon becomes apparent that working in partnership is the only course of action left open to them, but both Nick and Anderson are insistent it's all or nothing, and the thought of cutting a deal with each other is out of the question. So the race is on as they con their way into Brooke House with the intention of seducing Blackman's daughter and granddaughter Persephone, before running off with the treasure. Who will find the treasure first and what length's will they go through to get it?

Again this is top-shelf stuff, including bondage, spanking and erotic torture. It's explicit, perverse and reads just as a Nexus story should. Don't say I didn't warn you! I am also finally getting to grips with the front covers, although I still think they should be changed to appeal to a wider spectrum of readers and not look so much like men's pornographic material! But in a sense that's what they are, although artistically crafted.

Natural Desire, Strange Design in my opinion, is less bizarre than Deep Blue (which I read first) although equally as much fun. As the plot unravels, such diverse characters as Anderson's wrinkly butler Creech to young Ysabel, Nick's girlfriend, ensure an amusing and saucy read. I found the competition for Hecate's daughter, Persephone, hilarious. These scenes reminded me of a Carry On film, only the double entendres were replaced with `in your face' sex. Sex which neither Nick nor Anderson want to miss out on. It doesn't seem to matter who it is with as long as they feel they are gaining control of the treasure and each other. Anderson is an upperclass, borderline bully who doesn't play fair in or out of bed, so his final comeuppance was a treat to read!

Aishling Morgan's stories contain language and details of sexual acts which some people may find offensive, but if you are aware of the content within Nexus Books, then this form of erotica will read like a wet dream!

This book precedes Deep Blue.

Tracy-Jane.
