More About the Author

Award winning British author Saskia Walker first dreamed of writing her own stories when she discovered a handful of romance novels stashed away in her school library. An avid reader, she lapped up the fun, the adventures, and the life-affirming emotion of these stories, but always felt dismay when the bedroom door closed the reader out. She vowed that if she ever had the chance to pursue her dream, all the passion would be right there on the page.

Saskia finally began writing seriously in the late 1990s. By that time she'd traveled the world, got herself a BA in Art History, a Masters in Literature and the Visual Arts, and she'd worked in all manner of diverse careers--but the stories in her head simply had to be written. Her first erotic short story was signed in '97 and since then she has had many novel and novella publications, and her work has appeared in over eighty anthologies including Best Women's Erotica, The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica, and the Black lace Wicked Words series. Her erotica has also been featured in several international magazines including Cosmo, Penthouse, Bust, and Scarlet. Saskia writes across genres, but always with the passion right there on the page! Her novel, DOUBLE DARE, received the Passionate Plume award for the Best Contemporary Erotic Romance of 2006. RAMPANT was nominated for a 2010 RT Magazine Reviewers' Choice Award.

Saskia lives in the north of England--close to the beautiful, windswept landscape of the Yorkshire moors--with her real life hero, Mark. Mark supports her work through all its ups and downs, and somehow manages to keep her sane and grounded when fiction threatens to take over.

A nicely written short story, with a reasonable plot and believable sex scenes. Saskia Walker writes erotica with a realistic feel. The characters aren't 100% perfect and that's why you're bound to like them! Can these two (Leonie & Mike) patch up their differences?

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Contemporary Erotic Romance! 16 Jan. 2012
By Nina - Published on

The Devil You Know was the first work by Saskia Walker that I've read & it was definitely H-O-T! Ms. Walker absolutely knows how to turn up the heat! This short novella was packed with passionate, steamy love scenes; they're explicit, but not vulgar. Sashia Walker has such a phenomenal talent at writing exquisite erotic romance. She definitely knows how to get your juices flowing :)

This novella introduces the reader to Leonie & Mike. Amazon did a fine job of providing a summary for this novella so I won't go into depth about it. While it is short (~24 pages) don't dismiss it as a bad read. Ms. Walker managed to pull of well-developed characters & a believable plot & story line in such a short read. Overall, I recommend this if you are looking for a nice, fast & hot read to pass the time. Just don't read it in public ;)
4.0 out of 5 stars better than the one you don't know 18 Dec. 2011

The story was short, very short (about 20 pages in pdf format), but I stayed with it. Leonie ran to another continent to try and get her man out of her heart and head. I kind of blame Leonie for her predicament, bc she should have set boundaries in the beginning. I wish the author had at least given 1-2 extra chapters telling how they met and came to be sex buddies--there was nothing more and he wanted nothing more.

Leonie did use her time away proving she could handle her job and built her self confidence. The problem is she gave in way too fast and when she repeated some of the things the guy had said to her...well, I would have left to. They basically took up where they left off but at least now the guy was worried--he was not sure she still had feelings for him--'bout time. The author did good, just too short, but I would read more of her work.
