Welcome to the website of Janine Ashbless. I'm a writer of fantasy and paranormal erotica and - more rarely - scorching romantic adventure. I like to write about magic and myth and mystery, dangerous power dynamics, borderline terror, and the not-quite-human. And hot filthy sex, obviously...



The King's Viper
Rights to The King's Viper have reverted to me after the demise of Ellora's Cave Books - and it has become my first self-published work!

The Prison of the Angels

Romance Novel: third in the Book of the Watchers trilogy

The second in my fallen angel series, In Bonds of the Earth, has been released by Sinful Press - and the third, The Prison of the Angels, will be released in December 2017!


To my absolute delight I am immortalised on the "Islands of Erotica" in the Map of Literature by artist Martin Vargic. You should so buy this awesome best-seller of a book!

INCOMING!!! Cover reveals!

WAAAAH! I thought it would take months, but things are moving fast on the re-release front all of a sudden! The old Sweetmeats versions of Named and Shamed and Fierce Enchantments are coming down, which means the new, revamped Sinful Press versions can go up on sale VERY soon - in fact probably next week πŸ˜²πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ’

So here's the new cover for Named and Shamed, my no-holes-barred romp through fairy lore:

"A chili pepper rating of 10. I’m tempted to add a kink rating just for this book and would put this at 6 out of 5 (and no that wasn’t a typo)" - Books, Books and More Books

And this is the new cover for Fierce Enchantments, my third short-story collection:

"There’s something for everyone in this wondrously abundant, cerebrally and erotically stimulating, perpetually entertaining collection.” – Erotica for the Big Brain

Aren't they beautiful? I'm so grateful to Sinful Press and the talented Emmy at Studioenp!😊
