The Nightlife: New York (The Nightlife, #1)

This is definitely not your mother’s vampire story.  The Nightlife, New York, is the first in a series of novels penned by the talented author, Travis Luedke.

Aaron Pilan’s life sucks.  He has a low-paid job in a restaurant, and ever since his girlfriend dumped him, he has no-one but a beer-swilling roommate for a Saturday night date. But all this changes when, in a mad act of heroism, he’s shot down by a misdirected bullet from a corrupt policeman’s sidearm.

French bombshell Michelle has a dilemma.  She either watches the man who tried to save her die, or she can save him with her vampire’s blood. But Michelle knows his salvation will enslave him to her, so, as he gasps his dying breath, she offers him a choice.

When Aaron recovers, he’s at once thrust into a nightlife of vampires, nightclubs, strippers and thugs.  Enslaved to his savior, Aaron becomes torn between desire, lust and resentment, never knowing if he will survive, or whether the vampiress will turn on him to protect herself.

The Nightlife, New York, is a gripping story of seduction and lust that ensnares the reader from its very first bite. The characters are unique and engaging, and the sex is hot and off the thermometer – O Mon Dieu! Though an easy read, the characters are complex and believable and writer Luedke takes care over descriptions that remain vivid and detailed from start to finish. “The girl didn’t have a clue she was sitting in the lap of a lioness.”

This is a must read and the author is definitely one to watch for. Read more about the other books in the series below:

• Title: The Nightlife New York (Book #1 in The Nightlife Series) • Author: Travis Luedke • Release Date: August 18, 2012 • Genre: Paranormal, Adult Romance

Synopsis ::
Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, gangs, pimps and corrupt cops, the Nightlife of New York is never boring. Is she a beautiful blond guardian angel as he imagined, or something else entirely? When Michelle saves Aaron’s life she shares the benefits of her blood (after getting him shot accidentally). He awakes a changed man, living in a purgatory of eternal night, never to see the sunrise again. Michelle drags Aaron through a hardcore learning curve of vampiric slavery. Forced to adapt to servitude, Aaron is subject to her authority of compulsion. She orders him around like a puppet on a string, a dog on a very short leash. First things first, he must learn to feed properly without creating bloodslaves (humans addicted to the powerful drug-like effect of their venomous bite). And then she puts him to work-a male escort in the sex trade-same as Michelle. Aaron walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intensely erotic sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. It’s do or die, Michelle vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control. The real kicker-amidst all these shocking and degrading adjustments, Aaron finds he’s falling in love. Can he maintain and keep a sliver of his humanity intact? Innocence is a luxury few can afford in the decadent nightlife of New York. In a world where sex, blood, and power over women is so readily accessible, Aaron struggles against the predatory instincts deeply rooted in his new psyche. He must find his way quickly, practicing rigid self-control, or risk the consequences of Michelle’s wrath.

Vampires, Aaron Pilan and his master Michelle, live by one rule — no bloodslaves. EVER. Aaron breaks that rule when he meets Anastasia. All Anastasia wants is to be loved and cherished, but the predatory men she’s attracted to bring her only pain and abuse. Escaping one train-wreck relationship for another, she finds happiness with Aaron and Michelle as a bloodslave, a ‘pet’. When Aaron uses his telepathy to win thousands at the gambling tables, he attracts the deadly attention of the Colombian Cartel and Aaron and Michelle are ‘disappeared’. Addicted to the bite of her vampire lovers, Ana is desperate to find them. But, Las Vegas isn’t ready for vampires mixing heroin, sex and vengeance. Ana is trapped in the spiraling chaos.

Her mother named her Esperanza de Salvador – Hope for Salvation. But when a girl works as an escort for Colombian cartel in the ghettos of Spanish Harlem, there wasn’t much hope, or salvation. Hope’s telepathic ability keeps her a step ahead of ruin, but her unusual gift attracts the attention of a psychotic vampire bitch. Trapped in a Manhattan penthouse with the psycho, she thought she was dead meat. Her survival lies in the hands of Vampire Master Enrique. He seems to respect her, perhaps even care. As a measure of protection, he makes her his personal Bloodslave. Helplessly addicted to his bite, Enrique rules her every moment. As always, Hope must adapt to survive. Swept into the decadent nightlife of Manhattan’s elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience? Is she nothing more than a concubine desperate to satisfy his nightly demands for blood and sex? And forever in the background is the fear that one day the cartel boss she abandoned will hunt her down to collect on old debts.

THE MAN SPELL 6 #asmsg

“I think you should work up an appetite, first young man.”

“I think you should work up an appetite, first young man.”


Franny was running late. She made a lunge for her picnic basket and strapped it to the back of her broom. She had a date with Sheridan by the lake and she was ever so late. She stepped outside her front door, mounted her broom, and with a quick push off the ground was soon high in the air, speeding to meet him.

She found Sheridan, lying naked by the lake, gazing into the twilight sky.

“Sorry I’m late,” said Franny. “Have you been waiting long?”

“Not at all,” said Sheridan. “I’ve been composing a poem in honor of the Man Spell. Would you like to hear it?”



I kissed my witch, both high and low,

I’ve delved into her bosom,

But many a soul is lost inside.

That naughty Franny’s chasm.


A man would travel hill and dale,

From heaven’s gate to hell,

To feel the power of Franny’s lust,

Three Cheers for Franny’s Man Spell.

“Oh Sheridan, you are a dingle.”

“Come here, my sexy, naughty witch.”

At his command, Franny dropped to her knees beside him with the picnic hamper cradled in her arms.

“Ah, what delights are there within?” asked Sheridan. A hungry hand shot to the lid of the basket but, Franny reached across and slapped his wrist,

“I think you should work up an appetite, first young man.”

“Of course, willingly my love but let’s enhance things today. I love it when you use your Man Spell on my cock.”

Franny smiled. “Oh, believe me, so do I.”

Before Sheridan could change his mind she pulled out her wand and performed the Man Spell. Sheridan fell back flat on the grass and watched as his generous cock almost doubled in size.

“God I feel so giddy,” said Sheridan. “But it feels so good.”

With a flick of her wrist, Franny untied the bow round her neck and her travel robe fell to the ground. Naked, she stepped over the prostrate wizard and lowered herself onto his enormous appendage.

“My, that feels wonderful,” Franny sighed. She slipped down as low as she could go till she felt his hips on the skin of her thighs.

Up and down she rode the enormous cock, she’d cast the spell well, she knew exactly what girth would fill her completely and she wriggled with delight on the end of Sheridan’s massive knob.

“You’re one horny little witch,” said Sheridan. His hands reached up to her ample bosom and he began to massage her breasts, maintaining the same rhythm as his gyrating companion.

“Lean forward into my face, baby,” said Sheridan.

At his request Franny flopped forward and her large breasts swung wildly in his face, beating him as she slithered back and forth, working him into an erotic frenzy.

“Fuck ne like a dog,” said Franny.

She popped off Sheridan’s super-sized cock and fell onto all fours on the grass. Eager to please, the young wizard stepped behind
her and thrust into her entry, his hands on her love handles, pulling her onto him.  Thump thump, thump went the enormous cock,, and Franny leaned under to pleasure herself as he pounded.

Their release was fast and well-timed, and when Sheridan’s last drop was shed, he pulled out of Franny and fell with a thud on the grass beside her. Franny watched as the once enormous manhood shrank down to its natural size, and lay both content and sated on its master’s thigh.

“Chicken and wine?” said Franny.

With the incredible energy natural to her sex, Franny immediately jumped up and began emptying the picnic hamper. She pulled out a red checkered cloth and laid it down on the grass. She then opened a bottle of wine and filled a tumbler which she handed to Sheridan.

Sheridan hoisted himself up on one elbow. “Thanks, my lovely.”

Once Franny poured her own glass, Sheridan pulled her down beside him and planted an affectionate kiss on her luscious lips.

“Come here, my lovely. Let’s enjoy the moon rise together.  There’s a beautiful view from here, and after twilight, we can put a hurting on your picnic. How’s that sound?”

“Sounds lovely,” said Franny. She settled down close to Sheridan where she could enjoy the heat from his body.  The wine was refreshing and warmed her belly, and she felt beautiful, young and alive.

Sheridan took her hand just as the moon slipped out from behind a cloud, and together the lovers offered the night their love, but most of all, their thanks for the gift of the Man Spell.

Collage A~Trois! Well, Not Really (Giggles) #asmsg

All my characters

Since I’m in the company of artists, it’s probably no surprise to you how much work goes into the creation of a single drawing, or a single story. Like most writers I post little teasers from time to time, yet always with a touch of sadness as it means earlier work gets pushed forever deeper into the archived belly of this blog.

So today, for grins and giggles, and as a little light relief from the edits to “Kiss of the Marquis,” I made a collage of my prior illustrative works. Since inevitably, sooner or later, it too will be consumed in the history bowels, I’ve used it as the background for my twitter profile, and plan to update it as a wall of naughty infamy to display new works and cover art.  I hope you like it – looks like a super mouse mat to me!

Blessings, break over, time to get back to polishing the new novella.



I recently did an author interview with Jill Glass in honor of my newest release – ‘Drench The Wench.’ Her interview is shared above – enjoy! #asmsg

Glass Fantasies

Hello everyone!

Today we have a wicked little treat, I have with me here P.J. Perryman, who some of you may know on Twitter as @PattiSparkles, wearer of the sparkly knickers. In honor of her latest release, “Drench the Wench,” I’ve interviewed her to let you all know a little more about the writer behind the naughtiness. *wink*

So P.J. the question on everyone’s mind, how exactly did those sparkly knickers get so amazingly sparkly?

I have a secret. It’s not my knickers that sparkle, it’s the naughtiness within. One day when I was in my late teens, I exposed myself and it was like a super nova blasting out of my down-belows. Like Superman I thought it best kept a secret, but at last the time has come…

Now that is an image to remember *smirk* What first gave you the idea to start all the fantastic…

An interview with Blushing Mischief by Blushing Books #asmsg

“A Spank in Time” is the collaborative effort of an international author’s group writing for Blushing Books under the name Blushing Mischief.

Here at Blushing Books we get lots of submissions from writers who want their solo projects to be published, so when we received a collection of stories from a writers’ collective – a collection of very good stories – it was regarded as a bit unusual.

Unusual or not, the experience has been very rewarding. Spank in Time – an anthological romp through the ages – features hot spankings, hot sex and colorful characters. It’s gotten good reviews, too, and is a labor of love for a group that collaborates on everything from preferences in cover art to deciding on what to call themselves. They chose Blushing Mischief, which is perfect since their stories have a decidedly naughty, witty flair.

From an editor’s standpoint, working with this group has been a delight. Blushing Mischief spokesperson P.J. Perryman – author of the newly released Drench the Wench – consults with the other writers an relays their collective input to the editor for what has been a seamless process. Those who are already delighted with “A Spank in Time,” will be happy to know that Blushing Mischief will soon have another title available on Blushing Books. That book, “The Thrill of the Hunt,” features supernatural stories and will be published later this month.

Recently we interviewed Blushing Mischief to find out what it’s like to collaborate together on a book. We think their answers will be not only interesting to readers, but also to writers who may want to undertake the same type of group project themselves.

Blushing Books: It’s unusual for a publisher to be offered what is essentially a creative collaboration from a group of writers. This was a first for us. You’re a diverse lot. How did you all come together and how did you decide to collaborate on a book? What are your backgrounds?

Blushing Mischief: We’re all members of a writing forum (AbsoluteWrite) and we often hang out in the forum’s chat room together. Each of us has different backgrounds, some in the writing business and others doing regular non-writey jobs.  Some have experience with erotica, (well, writing it – I think we’ve all had a go at the real thing) but we’ve written other genres, like fantasy, horror, mystery, to name a few. One day, PJ Perryman suggested we pool resources and write something hot and steamy, and she set about cherry-picking the best of the best. And here we are!

Blushing Books: It can be a challenge for just one writer to work with an editor. I this case it’s a group with one writer, PJ Perryman, essentially acting as a spokesperson and consulting with the group on everything from the synopsis to the cover art to what to call yourselves. How difficult was this?  What snags did you hit along the way?  Did you encounter any creative differences, and if so how did you resolve them?

Blushing Mischief: The biggest issue we had was the time difference. We have writers in the US, the Netherlands and Portugal, so coordinating meetings proved something of a challenge. The social media platforms helped a lot – and early on team roles were established to keep things on track. This could have been difficult but with so much talent on board it became relatively smooth sailing.

As it was her baby, PJ did the rallying and nudging and came up with a lot of promotional ideas. Oh, and she coordinated stuff like this. AC Masterson is a fabulous editor and took on a lot of the review work (Yay, thank you AC!!!) Jilly Glass is a superb networker and provided moral support to anyone who needed it. AT Quinn has been writing erotica for some time and brought her expert advice and knowledge to the table.  Sadie Dane and Sara Peal joined Blushing Mischief a little later on, but they are both amazing writers – and are fervent supporters of the spanking cause.

Blushing Books: The books you’ve submitted as Blushing Mischief are thematic. Spank in Time was historical while Thrill of the Hunt has a paranormal theme. How did you decide on the themes? 

 Blushing Mischief: That was a group effort. Most of us have a background in fantasy writing, so the paranormal theme was settled quickly. Why the historical theme? Well, is there anything hotter than period spanking?!

 Blushing Books: The idea of a collaborative effort may be appealing to new writers who feel that a solitary book project would be too daunting. For others who may want to follow in the footsteps of Blushing Mischief, what advice can you offer? 

Blushing Mischief: You have to be a group of good friends that are open and honest with each other. One of you guys must be willing to PJ the entire thing (it’s a verb now!). Make sure that all the stories are edited by one person. Find a place to discuss your stories and plans in private.  Avoid spanking other writers in their writey moments.

Blushing Books: Do you believe your group will work together longterm, or do you envision the writers falling away to start solo careers?

Blushing Mishcief: The group Blushing Mischief will stay together for as long as we have readers. We will continue to come up with new, sexy, and exciting stories. That doesn’t mean that some of us won’t have other solo projects, but what we have here is special, and we really hope it lasts. 

Blushing Books: What are you plans for future projects? 

Blushing Mischief: A Spank in Time 2 – ‘The Spanks You Missed is coming soon. After that, it’s time for an Angel/Demon themed anthology. At least, that’s AT’s desperate hope. But whatever we do, you can be sure it will be fresh, fun, and above all, spanking hot.
