Let's Start A Reading List Of Steamy Fiction

Welcome to Jezebel After Midnight, in which we indulge in sexy sex talk.

Reading about sex for sex's sake is not something I'm interested in. Okay, that's a lie. I totally got in the habit of reading Panic At The Disco porn without plot slashfic a few years ago. Sue me. But the truth is, reading about sex is so much better when a gripping story is involved. The characters, the tension, the risks and the conflict all add to the descriptions of thrusting, licking and rubbing.

Once upon a time, my go-to source for smutty reading was Amanda Quick, aka Jayne Ann Krentz. She's got heaps and heaps of historical romances, in which there are bosoms and petticoats and manhoods straining under breeches. Super stereotypical chick fantasy stuff, and yet! It works for me. For instance: In Surrender, (which I plucked from my bookshelf), the Earl of Stonevale makes love to Victoria Huntington thusly:

He put his hand on her thigh and she opened them for him, offering herself. He moved between her legs, feeling the moist heat of her as he pushed against her softness. He took one of her nipples into his mouth and bit down with exquisite care as he surged into her tight, hot channel.

And so on, until she is "convulsing gently around him, drawing him even more deeply into her," and he lets out a "triumphant shout" as "his release swept over him."

But that book is old, and I'm ready for something new. So please. Recommend some graphic, sexy, hotter than the hinges of hell reading. Share titles, authors and examples of fiction that makes you wanna touch yourself. Bedtime stories!
