Kristina Lloyd's erotic fiction centers on female sexual submission and frequently features themes of sexual obsession and danger alongside elements of the suspense thriller. She lives in Brighton, a seaside town in England and the setting for her controversial and most popular novel, Asking for Trouble. Her short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies, including several "Best of" collections in both the UK and US, and her non-fiction has appeared in publications such as The Guardian, The Sunday Times Travel and the International Business Times. Her work has been translated into German, Dutch, Greek and Japanese. She has a Masters degree in 20th Century Literature and has been described as an author who "writes sex with a formidable force" and "makes no apology for writing transgressive fiction with some heavy female submission". Or as one reviewer put it: "not for the faint-hearted".
