About the Author
I became addicted to words at an early age. I began reading when I was four. I wrote my first story at five years old and my first poem at seven. Since then, I've written plays, tutorials, scholarly articles, marketing brochures, software specifications, self-help books, press releases, a five-hundred page dissertation, and of course, lots of erotica and erotic romance.
In addition to writing, I also edit erotica and erotic romance.
My lifelong interests in sex and the written word became serenditipitously entwined more than a decade ago when I read my first Black Lace book by Portia da Costa. Her work inspired me to take my fantasies out of the closet (and the private email files) and expose them to the world. The rest, as they say, is history (although granted, no more than a minor footnote!)
I've always loved traveling; my husband seduced me in a Burmese restaurant by telling me tales of his foreign adventures. Since then I have visited every continent except Australia, although I still have a long travel wish list. Currently I live with him and our two exceptional felines in Southeast Asia, where I pursue an alternative career that is completely unrelated to my creative writing.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is a very enjoyable and well-written book, with lots of references made to Victoria literature, which were both tantalising and informative. A hot and erotic story of someone exploring their sexuality. Full of incredible detail and history, this is much more than 'just' erotica. Definitely recommended.
* I received this book from Totally Bound Publishing in return for a fair and honest review. *

Miranda, having had only one lover in her 24 years of life moves to Boston to start her doctoral work on 'Victorian Erotic Literature' .. although it seems like a strange choice considering her previous lifestle Miranda manages to 'borrow' the persona, some of the clothes and even friends and cyber contacts of her roomate as she, literally, hits the streets in search of erotic and sexual adventures.
I have read Raw Silk by this author and this is a completely unique erotic book and emphazises this authors ability to write real life type of stories that virtually sizzle on the pages. As a young American, Miranda is a highly believable character as she begins to understand what happens to women that finally allow their bodies to enjoy what their minds had feared to think about .....
Its hot hot hot and Im looking foreward to more works ......
Miranda finally allows herself to begin to spend time with Mark, but she is hiding many secrets. Her sexual awakening, fueled by a Victorian diary she found, is changing her in unexpected and sometimes frightening ways. Unknown to Miranda, Mark is hiding something as well. Will the secrets tear them apart, or bring them closer together?
I will preface this review by saying Incognito is not for the faint of heart. The genre description doesn't even begin to describe what goes on in this book. If you don't like anonymous sex, fairly hardcore BDSM, same-sex activity, multi-partner activity, etc., don't pick this book up. That said, however, Incognito is a very hot read. The parallel-storyline device using Miranda's sexual awakening and the activities of the woman, Beatrice, in the Victorian diary, was well done and interesting. I could understand Miranda's reluctance to get involved again after being so badly hurt by her first lover. Her love interest, Mark, initially seemed kind and sweet, but had hidden depths. Most of the (many, many) sex scenes were well written and hot. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling the romance at all. Incognito read more like pure erotica to me. Miranda had several one-night stands with strangers, one or two of which kind of freaked me out. Her behavior at times was completely reckless and even dangerous, and a few times I thought I'd be offering her the name of a good therapist if she were a real person. While I can appreciate a bit of kink, Miranda and Mark never seemed to connect in any way other than through their mutual desire for ever more risky sex. If you're in the mood for lots of hot sex without much emotion, Incognito will fit the bill. If you want more connection and romance, however, look elsewhere.
