The wonderful KD Grace has a new racy novel, The Pet Shop. I fell in love with KD’s work last year when I read The Initiation of Miss Holly and a host of her shorts – I fell in love with KD when I read her blog. She is insightful, funny and thoughtful about all aspects of being an erotica writer. If I ever have doubts about my chosen genre, I head on over there for comfort and renewed enthusiasm.
And while I’m fed up to have missed the party Launch party on Friday, I hear it was the bomb! So big congratulations. Click on the book cover to read all about it – and keep reading for an extract and where to buy…

human pet. The mischievous TINO comes straight from THE PET SHOP complete with
a collar, a leash, and an erection. Stella soon discovers the pleasure of
keeping Pets, especially this one, is extremely addicting.
with Tino and with the reclusive philanthropist, VINCENT EVANSTON, who looks
like Tino, but couldn’t be more different, Stella is drawn into the secret
world of The Pet Shop. As her animal lust awakens, Stella must walk the thin
line that separates the business of pleasure from the more dangerous business
of the heart or suffer the consequences.

we took into account when we hired her. There’s no arguing she doesn’t have
time for sex.” He paused long enough for a quick breath. “Sorry to

mistake, and even if we haven’t, a weekend with Tino is just so hardcore at
this stage, don’t you think?” She straightened in her chair and brushed
