This month, five Emma Allan titles are available for the first time on Entice. Here, Emma introduces them . . .
I’m very excited at the publication of the first five of my books on Piatkus Entice. What I like to explore as a writer is the reaction of ordinary people, with often very limited sexual experience, being put in situations where they are offered the opportunity to expand their sexual horizons. As a result, their involvement in activities that they might previously have thought of as taboo ignite all sorts of hidden passions and desires.
In AMATEUR NIGHTS for instance I tried to imagine what an attractive married woman, sexually frustrated due to her husband’s lack of interest in her, would do if she was mistaken for a high class call girl and offered money for sex. It’s such an interesting situation. My character, Diana, accepts the money and the role and embarks on a roller coaster ride of sexual exploration. She finds that pretending to be a call girl gives her a sexual freedom she’s never experienced before. Her adventure continues in AMATEUR DAYS.
NAKED AMBITION has a different premise. Here a plain but extremely hard working girl realises that in the television company she works for a lot of less talented girls are getting on purely because they are beautiful and willing to sleep with the boss. Inheriting a little money she decides she is going to play the same game and transform herself. The difference is immediately apparent. Men become pawns to her ambition but in the process she also discovers she has a natural talent for sex and uses it to get just what she wants. In NAKED INTENT she soon finds that her talent is properly rewarded and that sex is one way for her to break through the glass ceiling.
Sex between married couples can often become routine and boring. In SECRETS a couple are offered the opportunity to join a very exclusive and very decadent club. Reluctant at first they are gradually drawn into the furthest reaches of sexual behaviour. But will it all end in tears? You’ll have to read the book to find out . . .

This February, we publish five erotic ebooks from Emma Allan. Here she tells us about the inspirations behind her erotic fiction.
I’m often asked what my inspiration was for writing an erotic novel. I suppose the truth is that I had always enjoyed sex and I wanted to explore my own sexual fantasies. From my very first experience I was always interested in alternative scenarios. I know that a lot of women have no desire to explore or experiment beyond trying new positions – and some not even that – but my mind has always seemed to run riot.
My first impulse was to write books about women who took charge of their own sexual desires, who wanted to set their own sexual agenda. Often this would involve experimenting with the idea of being either totally submissive or totally dominant. But these are only two themes in a world of sexual adventure my characters explore. Inevitably the stories involve same sex and bi-sexual relationships as well as bondage, discipline and all the other accoutrements of outré sex. I love to create scenes that show just how exciting and enticing corsets, whips and complex restraint can be. In the end I like to think that these books set people free to explore their own fantasies by showing them that sexual taboos (within the legal limits) are there to be broken.
Oddly enough writing an erotic novel has the same underlying motivation as writing a crime thriller. For most people committing a crime is crossing a line created by morality and the social taboos that they are brought up with. Exactly the same is true in the erotic novel. Ideas of morality and sexual taboos create a line of behaviour that is hard for some people to cross. In both types of novel what is interesting is what finally makes a person cross that line and what happens to them having crossed it. Taking that first step, throwing aside the shackles of convention, can be difficult but once the threshold is crossed often there is no looking back . . .
I hope you enjoy the new tranche of my novels which will be issued by Piatkus Entice. I certainly enjoyed writing them.
Amateur Nights, Amateur Days, Naked Ambition, Naked Intent and Secrets by Emma Allan are all available in ebook from Entice in February 2013.
