Slaves of Destiny

Leia here. I have a new book I’m going to do a little shameless promotion for. On my other blogs, my more vanilla slightly tame ones, I listed the top ten reasons to buy my new book, Slaves of Destiny. But for you kinky folk, you get an even better version!

Top five things that make Slaves of Destiny a sexy erotic book that you just must read:

1. There’s an incubus (or two). Come on. Wings, muscle, evilness. A kidnapper of women to use as sex food. Hot, right?


2. There’s also a slave auction in an Underworld brothel.

Sorry. It was too ironic not to use this photo.

3. Possessive alpha male? Check!

He kicked off his pants and felt a wave of relief as his cock sprang free. There was a sense of rightness at seeing her beneath him, eagerly waiting, wet and hungry. He wanted to sate her, not just today and not just to ease her pain, but forever. The satyrs could go fuck themselves.

This woman was his.

4. Uhh, the heroine is a nymph. As in nymphomaniac. Need I say more?


5.  War prize!

He ducked down then hefted her over his shoulder. She gave a surprised yelp, but went limp.  Right now, she was his war prize. A sudden thrill raced down her spine. War prize. There was something sexy about that. Wetness dampened between her thighs.


If that doesn’t convince you, what about the cover?



There’s much, much more that I didn’t list — like sweet wine kisses, and hair pulling, and BJ’s, and tickle fights — but I wouldn’t want to ruin the fun of reading all that! So buy the book. And come to the dual party Cari and I are throwing Friday (Dec. 20th) on Facebook! We’re giving away amazon gift cards so make sure to join!

Here are the buy links and the blurb.

From the Shadows of Destiny Series… 

More than a hundred years ago, the last nymph tribe was hunted to near extinction. Only one frightened girl escaped. Seraphina. 

During a soul-searching expedition, philosophy professor, Bodhi, comes across an ethereal creature bathing in a waterfall. She’s both playful and beautiful and soon he finds himself bewitched. The fantasy crumbles when a winged figure steps from a portal and steals away the girl. Drawn to help her, he follows them into a world of nightmares. 

Discover what Fate has planned for them in this novella, Slaves of Destiny.

Polyamory Workshop — We Need Your Help!

Me (Leia) and Sorcha will be attending BDSM CON in NYC August 2014. This is a 4 day conference for readers and writers interested in the BDSM lifestyle. There’s lots of demos, discussions, panels, a trip to a club, and a book signing. Honestly, it looks like a lot of fun and I’m excited to go.

There, Sorcha and I are presenting a workshop about Polyamory (and other multi-partner relationships). The official blurb is as follows:

As women’s fantasies are expanding, the market has become ripe for multiple-partner romances. But adding more characters to the bed can sometimes feel like a game of Twister. In this workshop, we’ll explore the different types of multi-partner relationships, how to portray them accurately, and how to weave in the dynamics of a D/s lifestyle.

We’ve been asked to provide more information about our workshop but it’s so far away Sorcha and I haven’t given it a whole lot of thought yet. We spoke recently and wondered what readers and writers wanted to know about the topic of multi-partner relationships. Here’s where we need your help!

Leave a comment with ideas on what you’d be interested in learning or hearing about at a workshop like this. If you have specific questions about it, that would be helpful too. Then we’ll know how to steer our workshop. If you’re not comfortable leaving a comment, you can always email me at leia (at) leiashaw (dot com).

Thank you in advance for your involvement! We love hearing from fans and other writers about our books, your stories, and everything you share with us. We just love talking with you guys!


Five Things you Don’t Know About Leia Shaw

My turn! Five things you don’t know about me. Well, if you follow me on facebook, you probably know a lot about me by now so I’ll have to be creative. Hmm. Maybe you should run away now. Mwahahaha.

1. I have a tic. I do this snorting thing. Well, not really a snort. That’s sounds terribly unattractive. It’s more like a… like a whale blowing out of its blowhole. Just a little. It’s hardly noticeable. Unless you’re sitting next to me.

2. I am a bit of a musician. In fourth grade I started playing the cello. I really wanted to play the viola cause I really liked the word “viola” but my grandma played the cello and I knew it would break her heart if I didn’t pick it. So for years and years, I took lessons, played in orchestras and string quartets, and even a Klezmer band (Jewish folk music) until I got pretty damned good. But I sucked at music theory, which oddly has a lot to do with Math (which I failed twice), so I could never be a director or composer or anything fancy. Now I don’t have time to play anymore but someday in the future, I might pick it up again and see what I remember. Same goes for piano. I started lessons at 6 but got rusty without regular practice.


Yup. This is what I do. I play my cello. Sexy cello playing 😉

3. I’m a former job hopper. After high school, I went to college way too early, before I really knew what I wanted to do. What I needed to do was “find myself” and the heavy dose of academics just bogged me down. I failed most of my classes and quit after 2 years. To my shame, I’m still paying off debt, which sucks bad. After that, I tried a plethora of careers: ski lift painting, special ed assistant, cotton candy seller at the circus (I kid you not), foster parent recruiter, pedicure giver, and more. Finally, I settled on writing and haven’t looked back. Turns out you don’t need a degree to be an author! Yay! But, seriously, if you want a real job, get a degree.

4. I’m pretty well-traveled. Yeah, so remember all that about finding myself up there? ^^ During and after college, I did a lot of traveling. I taught kids English in Russia. I did street theater in Amsterdam. I helped with rebuilding projects in Jamaica and Mexico. I even got lost in Germany!  Fun times. Now all that is behind me and there’s no future in adventuring until the kids move out. *sigh* I tell them that every day. “As soon as you move out in 15 years, Mommy gets her life back.”



5. I got up close and personal with a bear in the wild. I went through a super adventurous phase in my early twenties where I went
backpacking all over the country, learned to rock climb, white-water rafted and all that. I have TONS of stories from getting dehydrated and hallucinating to almost getting chased by a mountain lion, to scaling some ridiculously dangerous cliffs with no rope, to getting charged by a mountain goat. But the best story is when a black bear climbed into our lean-to while we were sleeping, not five feet in front of me. The story is hilarious if you ever see me in person. I tell great stories, complete with dramatic hand gestures, facial expression, screaming, the whole nine yards.

So I thought this would be hard but it turns out I have LOTS to say! Hmm. Imagine that. Anyway, five is enough for now. Maybe we’ll do this again some day.

Anyone have similar experiences as me? Or leave a comment just to let us know you’re here!
