Tour organized by: AToMR Tours
Supermodel Katie Wolfer takes a call from her stepfather as she steps off the Dior runway in Paris: her mother has died. As she struggles to move forward as an orphan, two men loom large for Katie—Gavin Poole, a hot, emerging fashion designer with an inability to commit, and her charismatic, wealthy French stepfather, Daniel de Goncourt. Katie becomes entangled with both of them, exploring her darkest sexual desires amidst a lavish, decadent lifestyle.
This full-length novel will sweep you up in a world of beauty and power. Katie is smart, but also impulsive and flawed. As one of the most beautiful women in the world, she is always in the crosshairs, seducing or being seduced by both men and women. Deeply erotic, thoughtful, and thrilling, this novel is sure to arouse and intrigue you.
Talking Genre with K M Dylan
I would call my novel classic erotica (as opposed to an erotic romance). As I mentioned before, I was very influenced by French authors of erotic classics such as Emmanuelle, The Story of O and Delta of Venus. My novel falls in that tradition because my protagonist Katie is on an erotic quest. That is a big point of difference from more romance-oriented novels such as Fifty Shades of Grey. Katie does have romantic feelings for two very different men in the book, but for her (and me), sex can just be for its own sake. The fact is, men aren’t the only ones who think that way – I have been in certain situations with a really hot guy (or girl), and we just wanted to get it on. Sex can be an exhilarating, sensual and even ecstatic experience on its own terms, though romantic feelings tend to get woven in… For me, the definition of erotica is that it contains a “forbidden” element and that it is well written. Porn to me is erotica that is poorly written. I also think my novel will appeal to both women and men, whereas erotic romance (such as Fifty Shades) is mainly for a female audience.
