When I was a teenager, I despised horror movies. I was a complete wimp. Wanted nothing to do with them. I couldn’t stand being startled. But of course, my two best friends were really into them. They wanted nothing more than to watch every Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, and Jason movie ever made. Since it was two-to-one, I spent a lot of time cringing behind a pillow and refusing to go to the bathroom alone.
BUT, if you gave me a Stephen King book, I was happy as a clam. What was the difference? Well, for one thing, nothing JUMPS out at you while flipping a page. All the horror is mental, not visual or auditory. My imagination is, while I can’t really control it, really familiar. All the boogeymen in my head are completely stuck there. They can’t leap out and actually get me.
While those guys you see on TV? You SEE them. Therefore it’s possible they might exist. No thank you.
Since I grew up and peer pressure is less of a factor, I have kept my resolve not to watch any more horror movies. Even when I began writing an erotic horror novella for Ellora’s Cave, SINFUL TRUTH, I stayed away from any research that might make me crawl underneath my bed and sob like a scared child.
A scaredypants wrote an erotic horror story? Yup. She sure did. And if I do say so myself, it’s pretty darn creepy.
Bryerly Keats just wants a fresh start. Instead she discovers a group of men who prey on women, devouring them to gain powers and immortality. When the men set their sights on Bry, she’s rescued by Verum the Truth Keeper, an ancient being who sees all, knows all and bears the ugly truths of the world on his broad, lonely shoulders. He’s willing to rescue Bry if she’s willing to pay a price—not just hours of mind-blowing, orgasmic bliss but a lifetime of sharing his burdens. Including the ability to read minds and see the past.
In a town where men do horrible, unspeakable things, being able to hear the darkness of their thoughts is more curse than gift but Bry is willing to do anything if it means ending the carnage…and staying with Verum forever.
Reader Advisory: Sinful Truth is a supernatural slasher romance with lots of hot sex and a hero who’s to die for—literally. If you’re squeamish or object to a nipple clamp or two, you might need a fainting couch for this one.
