Merry Christmas from Guest Author Lily Harlem

Wow, am I excited to be here today!! Thanks so much for inviting me to 69 Shades of Smut so I can say a very big and juicy Happy Christmas to all you lovely smutters.

I hope Santa has been good to everyone, though of course you might not want good, some of you, I’m sure, enjoy a little bad! I’ll be me in that category then, I love to read and write naughty romance. You can find out all about my work on my website –

Now I know everyone likes freebies, so I thought, soon as it’s a special day, I would send you in the direction of some reads that won’t cost you a penny – I’m English, cent doesn’t roll off my tongue. So lets chink glasses, grab another mince pie and get going…

Now we all know that one of the ways to a man’s heart (or a woman’s for that matter) is through their stomach. So why not grab yourself a copy of Passionate Cooks?


Over one hundred, myself included, erotic romance authors teamed up with All Romance eBooks to create this tempting recipe book, and much like romance novels themselves, the dishes range from spicy to sweet. There is something for every taste and every level of culinary expertise. The cookbook includes New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mari Carr’s “Wild Irish” Cream of Crab Soup recipe. Western GBLT author BA Tortuga contributes a dish as spicy and colorful as the straight-shooting author herself with Ranch Hands—a blend of Tabasco, salsa, onions and cumin, added to pinto beans, eggs, Canadian bacon and cheddar cheese and served in a tortilla. And for those of you who are feeling extra creative and sexy, there’s the Avocado Dip that doubles as body paint from mystery writer Marcia James.

Some recipes are simple, such as Down Home Mac & Cheese, while some are more exotic, such as Spicy Shrimp Risotto. There are even some gluten-free selections, like the Sweet and Spicy Gluten-Free Lo Mein-ish Noodles from erotica author Sommer Marsden. And a few are perfectly for Halloween, such as Tracey H. Kitt’s Gamberi del Diavolo or Shrimp of the Devil. Be sure to look out for my recipe, Welsh Rarebit, a delicious cheesy snack to enjoy after a long walk on a frosty day.

Did you know that Ellora’s Cave have a free section of books? If not then you’re on to a winner here. Check out all the stories on this page – . Again look out for me, I have a free short story called Stockholm Seduction. I wrote it a few years ago and had so many reader requests for the full-length novel – ultimately called Stockholm Surrender – that I got my head down and let these edgy, dangerous characters talk to me again. So if you enjoy the free short story, (now included as a prologue in the novel) check out the rest of Ty and Penny’s global adventures. Stockholm Surrender has had some great 5* reviews which you can check out here –

I also write for Total-E-Bound, and they too have a selection of free stories up for grabs. You’ll find some great names offering you a taste of their voice by following this link – – and check out my steamy tale Unhealthy Obsession!

Don’t forget there is always the FREE Amazon list too, that changes on a daily basis. I was lucky enough a few months ago to hit the number one spot on the chart with a co-author book I wrote with Natalie Dae. Good Cop, Bad Cop is a steamy ménage novel that certainly seems to hit the spot with readers! –

Natalie and I have written together a lot this year, our first novel, That Filthy Book, sadly not free, has had some amazing reviews, including ‘Every woman should read this book.’ Naturally that thrilled us and encouraged us to keep writing together and now we have Anything For Him contracted by Mischief at Harper Collins. I feel very privileged not to be only writing with Nat, but also able to call her my friend and confidant. And I hope in years to come, when we have many more co-author titles, we will be able to look back fondly on That Filthy Book and say remember when…

Talking of Mischief books, check them out, no absolutely free books as I write this, but lots at an incredibly reasonable price from first rate authors you definitely should check out if erotica and erotic romance is your thing –

Well, that’s it for now, in regards to free reads. But if you fancy some free eye candy why not check out my Pinterest boards. . I got a bit carried away this year collecting hot guys and sexy stolen moments. There are just always more to find!!! Do follow me on Pinterest, grab my pins for your own boards (because they’re not mine really!) and have fun.

Once again, happy Christmas, enjoy your day, whatever you’re doing. Whether you’re busy in the kitchen, sitting with your feet up in front of a roaring fire with a good book, or wrapped up warm and walking through the woods holding hands with your special someone. Eat, drink and be merry!!

    Enjoyed your blog. Checked out everything that you listed. Good Cop, Bad Cop is not free on Amazon. I might have misunderstood that paragraph and thought that it was a free read or there’s confusion on Amazon’s end.


  2. Susanne, sorry, you misunderstood, Good Cop, Bad Cop was free a few months ago and hit the top spot on Amazon, it then reverted to being a bought book. But what is free now Is MORE by myself and Natalie Dae (details on my blog) and SCORED, a sexy soccer novel. But hurry, 26th is the last day for SCORED to be free, again details on my website/blog. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. Lily x
