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!

It looks truly epic: equal parts awful/highly entertaining ;-)
