Lady Smut is a blog for intelligent women who like to read smut. On this blog we talk about our writing, the erotic romance industry, masculinity, femininity, sexuality, and whatever makes our pulses race.
LIZ EVERLY: I write sexy culinary-themed romantic suspense. My first novel, SAFFRON NIGHTS, was published by eKensington in February 2013. the next book in the series, CRAVINGS, will be published in November 2013.
Some believe that the best food, like the best sex, comes with love. Others are more complicated in their appetites. Therein lies my fascination. When I write about food I am really writing about love and the hunger for it. In SAFFRON NIGHTS, my intrepid food journalist and her handsome photographer are traveling the world in search of the ultimate aphrodisiac. Stir in the suspense a mysterious death, and a global chase, and you have the perfect recipe for passion.
SAFFRON NIGHTS is part of a series that explores food and passion on an international scale. Think truffle hunting in Tuscany, exotic mushroom gathering in Hawaii, and open-air markets in Mexico.
MADELINE IVA: I enjoy writing erotic romances with what is called ‘sugar kink’. What is that? Kinky-lite sex with some props. Handcuffs, say. My books focus on intelligent heroines, brooding heroes, a dash of luxury or fantasy, and a big dash of comedy.

ELIZABETH SHORE: I’ve always loved erotic historical romance. The strong-willed ladies who defy conventional restrictions and have the kind of sex and relationships they want (rather than what society/family dictates) are endlessly appealing to read — and to write. I’ve written several historicals and have had two published with Kensington (under the pen name Liz Madison).
Lately I’ve taken the contemporary erotic romance world for a spin and found out how much I like that, too. My upcoming book from Wild Rose Press is set in the Louisiana bayou at a king cobra research facility. It’s a m/f sizzler called Hot Bayou Nights.
As I’ve been writing this bio the sky has grown black and a thunderstorm is imminent. It seems rather fitting, since my reading taste tends to gravitate toward the darker, edgier side of romance. I’m a member of RWA and my local chapter, Hudson Valley Romance. Tweet with me @renaissance11.
