    All done with the fifty shades trilogy and I'm on the hunt for something along the same lines. I've just finished reading Can You Keep a Secret? by Katie Collins and Robert Carry, which was absolutely brilliant, but I'm all done with it now and I'm on the look out for something else. Any ideas?

    With absolutely no recommendation whatever, I'll mention

    Bared to You by Sylvia Day

    which appeared almost immediately after the Fifty Shades splash showed there was a huge potential market for the genre, plus some erotica under a pseudonym early in Anne Rice's career:

    The Sleeping Beauty novels by A. N. Roquelaure (aka Anne Rice).

    My wife tells me the Rice novels are trashy, unredeeming and degrading to women from their very first word. You takes your chances.

    But, presumably more worthwhile, and a "classic" by now with greater literary merit, should be

    Delta of Venus by Anais Nin

    And, contributed by my wife:

    A Madwoman's Diary by Jill Emerson (actually Lawrence Block!)

    with a woman's erotic journey.

    Enough? :)

    Come to think of it, I should start writing erotic novels. Everyone else seems to have tried it. :eek:

    Ah, of wiles there are many -- including innocence.

    But, to return to the question, perhaps one should mention one of the originals:

    Lady Chatterly's Lover by D. H. Lawrence.

    It's true Peder.
    The romance has gone out of erotica. The new ones are bereft of any soul, any romance, any....compassion. They are simply slam, bam, and (maybe) thank you ma'am. Sad. Give me the classics. And I don't mean "romance novels" Blech.
    I mean honest to goodness love stories that have btw, great sex. :D

    There we definitely agree! Perfect!

    If it don't have that romance, it don't mean a thing. /paraphrase Duke Ellington./

    Great romance and great sex. No btw. :flowers::D
