Birdwatchers — A Steamy Outdoor Encounter
He came for the birds, but stumbled into the arms of a saucy minx. This literotic short shares steamy encounter on a late summer birdwatching afternoon. -- EXCERPT She reaches behind her and tugs at the strings. They come apart and her white bikini top falls around her waist. She gathers her hair and wraps it in a scarf on top of her head. Then she lies back. She reaches for her book. Her breasts settle on her chest. Her nipples, the colour of wrens, face the blue sky. It's quiet here. Tourists don't hike this far up the mountain. She must know it; she doesn't bother looking around before slipping a hand into her bikini bottom. The motion of her fingers is obvious beneath the fluttering fabric. Her breathing deepens into a rhythm. Her chest rises and falls, lifting and lowering the book she clutches in her left hand while her right one shudders between her legs. Her belly is tight. Her crimson lips are soft and pouting. "Oh!" she cries. But her voice is swallowed by the forest. Her canary yellow picnic blanket is crumpled in a nest around her. Her body is turbulent, swept away by a squall. It whips her until she starts to tremble, her headscarf comes loose and, finally, she drops the book. "Oh!" she cries again, and arches her back against the rock bed. Her sunglasses topple off her face. Her eyes are hummingbird green and beating their wings in the storm. And then, she sees me. Hands fly to cover her naked breasts, but the tempest rages on. She is helpless against it, and I watch. She rolls onto her belly, body still billowing. Her legs curl beneath her, knees to chest, and she buries her face in the blanket. The gale becomes a breeze and fades into the distance.

Kiss Me, Kill Me
"I loved, loved, loved this book! If I could give it fifty stars, I would. Sayara St Clair has a madcap, dynamic, tongue-in-cheek style of writing which is entirely unique, the story told through gorgeous Ana's high-octane, kick-ass narration which ranges from dry irony to wicked black humour to laugh-out-loud funny and seems effortless – which, of course, it isn't. Scratch beneath the surface and there's a beautifully crafted, well-structured story told by a seriously talented writer who knows how to hold the reader's attention from the very first page to the last. It's exciting - Ana's adventures and close encounters with the Grim Reaper are enough for a dozen lifetimes. And the characterisation is superb – not only Ana and her hunky boyfriend Greg (who also happens to be a novice vampire) but the hilarious miniature Goth, Melanie (the tiny person with the large attitude and bad boxing form), her boyfriend Scott, Lorenzo and the dreadful stepmother, step-siblings and a host of others – all so real and beautifully drawn, they jump off the page. Okay, a good many of them turn out to be vampires (I won't say which as that would be a spoiler) but in St Clair's surreal world, being a vampire seems pretty much normal and almost obligatory. Of course, we all know that the urge to suck blood is closely linked to other urges (gorgeous Greg also has a massive libido, is into domination and would "suck Ana dry"– not that she seems to mind) and there's plenty of that too – in every shape and form – making this novel very VERY hot. That said, the breakneck pace is offset by some moments of great sadness, tenderness and pathos, making this a satisfying, perfectly rounded read. In all, Sayara St Clair brings a freshness and exuberance to the genre of erotic writing which is like a breath of fresh air. So read it, enjoy it, be turned on by it, lose yourself in it. A wonderful book." –Michel Arnaud
