The right kind of punishment can be a powerful turn on. A simple leather strap, a shiny pair of handcuffs, a dominant's stern gaze - the yearning for a partner who will take control can be as powerfully gripping as the most intricate, indecipherable rope knot. SLAVE TO LOVE gathers the most popular - and often most taboo - fantasies of sexual control and erotic restraint. Featuring stories by writers including Marilyn Jaye Lewis, Rachel Kramer Bussel and Saskia Walker, it is a luscious, naughty and infinitely sexy read.
Called a trollop with a laptop by East Bay Express, Alison Tyler is naughty and she knows it.
Over the past 20 years, Ms. Tyler has written more than 25 explicit novels, including Learning to Love It, Strictly Confidential, Sweet Thing, Sticky Fingers, and Something About Workmen (all published by Black Lace), as well as Rumors, Tiffany Twisted, and Melt With You (Cheek). Her novels and short stories have been translated into Japanese, Dutch, German, Italian, Norwegian, and Spanish. Her stories have appeared in more than 100 anthologies.
When not writing saucy short stories, Ms. Tyler edits erotic anthologies. She's edited more than 50 collections, including Alison's Wonderland (Harlequin, 2010) and With This Ring, I Thee Bed (Harlequin, 2011). Her best-selling titles include Naughty Fairy Tales from A to Z (Plume), Naked Erotica (Pretty Things Press), and Best Bondage Erotica (Cleis Press).
Ms. Tyler is loyal to coffee (black), lipstick (red), and tequila (straight). She has tattoos, but no piercings; a wicked tongue, but a quick smile; and bittersweet memories, but no regrets. She believes it won't rain if she doesn't bring an umbrella, prefers hot and dry to cold and wet, and loves to spout her favorite motto: You can sleep when you're dead. She chooses Led Zeppelin over the Beatles, the Cure over NIN, and the Stones over everyone. Yet although she appreciates good rock, she has a pitiful weakness for 80s hair bands.
In all things important, she remains faithful to her partner of 15+ years, but she still can't choose just one perfume.
