About the Author
Janine Ashbless was awarded Writer of the Year by Jade Magazine, the international erotic art and literature publication. She is a multi-published author of erotica and - occasionally - erotic romance. Her first book was published in 2000 and she's written many novels since. But none of them are as wild as 'Named and Shamed'! She's always used elements of fantasy, mythology and folklore in her writing, with occasional forays into horror. Janine loves goatee beards, ancient ruins, minotaurs, trees, mummies, having her cake and eating it, and holidaying in countries with really bad public sewerage. She s a roleplaying geek and can still sometimes be found running round in the woods hitting other geeks with a rubber sword. It is unlikely she will grow up anytime soon. Janine lives in England with her husband and two rescued greyhounds, and is trying hard to overcome her addiction to semicolons.

I'm a complete convert for erotic fantasy now!
I chose the paperback as its is scattered with brilliant erotic illustrations from John LaChatte, it is even printed on excellent quality paper and you even feel like you are holding a more luxury book; making this reading experience even better.
I started reading this at 8am this morning and its now 1.30am I seriously couldn't put this book down. It is a dark erotic depraved fairytale like nothing you have ever read or can conceive.
Tansy a young beautiful sexy red-headed girl an expert in many things magic and fae; who never could have believed the trouble she caused when she chose to steal some precious manuscripts from a kind antiquarian. If you loved your fairytales as a child you will love this fairytale as a red blooded adult. If you have erotic fantasies of sex with monsters and the inhuman this is written for you. From everything you can imagine; ogres to witches, goblins to trolls, satyrs to dwarves.
Tansy is enveloped gradually from the normal world into the magical world as she struggles to find the answer to break a curse; she hungers for sex to the point it doesn't matter who or what or even for her own safety.Read more ›
Some of it is probably not for the sexually faint hearted - if you haven't read Janine Ashbless' work before you may want to start with one of her other stories ('Wildwood' I recommend you read first as it sets up the background to this although you can read them as stand alone stories without losing anything. 'The King's Viper' is another good one to start with or 'Heart of Flame'... but I love all her work :))
Whilst Tansy exhibits some preferences that I wouldn't, her enjoyment is pretty infectious and I didn't skip a single page.
Recommended for lazy nights in, with a large glass of wine :)
Seriously. I am still in shock.
A colourful blend of the worlds of fantasy, myth, folklore and a dash of reality, Janine Ashbless uses all the powers of her astonishing imagination to bring you the most debauched tale of sorcery and depravity you're ever likely to read.
I really didn't have any clue what I was in for when the lovely people at Sweetmeats Press sent me Named and Shamed to read and review. Yes ok, the cover states Warning! Exxxplicit Content - with the triple X of 'twoo porn'. Yada yada. Doesn't normally mean that much, does it.
Especially when below a tag line describing the work as 'A dark and dirty illustrated erotic fairy tale.'
Fairy tale? Just how rampant could it get? I know I'm not the only one imagining Tinkerbell with her knickers round her knees.
I should have had some clue from the first book I reviewed for Sweetmeats Press, back in January - Immoral Views, an anthology compiled by Kojo Black.
Sweetmeats Press offer an additional extra with their books too, they're illustrated. I don't require this personally and I do feel that it somewhat detracts from the story in usual cases, however in this book at times it was useful to see just exactly which position the author was referring to.. or in fact, what the specified creature looked like...
The story starts fairly innocently, sweeping us into the world of our gorgeous red headed protagonist, living in the modern day world which just happens to be filled with creatures previously only found in myth and legend. Trolls, hobs and the 'fair folk'...Read more ›
Named and Shamed by Janine Ashbless is marketed as "A dark and dirty illustrated erotic fairy tale" and my God, is it pure filth..... and I LOVED IT! Due to my technological inabilities I was sent a complimetary copy of the paperback by the lovely Joe at Sweetmeats Press, and thank YOU Joe, I will never let it gather dust!
The book looks jolly impressive, oooh it's lovely and thick *giggles* with a bit of weight to it, I do love a good juicy... novel! Have I mentioned that it is cover to cover BDSM erotica, looking at the cover now having finished it, the Exxxplicit content warning hardly seems adequate!
This book combined my love of the paranormal with BDSM, occasionally straying into dark erotic murky waters - It is, a brilliant combination. Named and Shamed tells the story of a beautiful `normal' red-headed girl, Tansy, who finds herself in an impossible situation. This results in her ending up under a faerie and also his curse, turning her into a wanton insatiable nymphomaniac.
Her fate is sealed and she slides further and further into the dark magical world of `Them there' in her quest to rid herself of the fatal curse laid upon her by the handsome `helpful' deviant.Read more ›
