After accidentally stealing the life force from a dying demon, Allay became the only human-demon hybrid in existence. Because demons feed off of human emotions, Allay decided the safest way to live as a demon and still retain some semblance of humanity would be to open a bar and drink from her patrons' pain and torment. And she's managed to stay under the demon radar-until now.
Attacked and nearly killed by another demon, Allay is saved by a human who comes to her rescue. Theo Ram is tall, handsome, and mortal-and Allay feels a connection to him she didn't think she'd ever know. But that bond is tested when the demon community in New York begins to rise up, and two opposing clans fight for power. Now Allay is caught in the middle, and she must decide where her loyalties lie…
"A fascinating, utterly original demon world, teeming with conflict and intrigue. I fell in love with Allay and her struggle to keep her humanity despite the forces aligned against her. Mesmerizing and addictive, CONFESSIONS OF A DEMON is urban fantasy at its best!"
~Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of WICKED GAME
"Way fast read, intensely built world, tortured hero, kick-ass heroine, what's not to like?! Huge cast of demons, but their names are a huge help for remembering who's who--Savor, Dread, Vex, Pique, Bliss, Mystify. And obviously more fun to come in subsequent stories!"
Half-human and half-demon, Allay has finally warmed up to her new life feeding off the customers at her downtown bar when she finds herself brokering a truce between New York City's most powerful demons. But when she senses assassins around every corner, Allay hides out of sight and underground-until combatants in the growing war tempt her back above the surface. Her choice is clear: live in fear or change the world as everyone knows it.

Between dominance and subservience lies a power no amount of pain or pleasure can extinguish...
As a pleasure slave for the house of Vidaris, Marja submitted to the whims of her master, Lexander, offering no resistance to his desires. But she could still see the good within her master's heart - and set him free with her love.
To atone for his sins, Lexander has sworn to free all slaves by destroying pleasure houses throughout the world. He burns Vidaris to the ground, knowing that word of his betrayal will reach his fellow masters, and that he will be branded a renegade and hunted down.
Determined to aid Lexander at any cost, Marja accompanies him into one den of iniquity after another, infiltrating the slave quarters, willing to endure hardship and pain and even the loss of Lexander's love in order to sow the seeds of revolution....
Between domination and subservience exists a realm of sensual fantasy unlike any ever dreamed...
Marja was born a child of the fens, young, beautiful, and free. Her days were spent searching for bog iron for her poor family and communing with the spirits of the land who both guard and guide her. But her contentment is broken when a man comes to her small village and buys her from her father to transform her into a pleasure slave.
The handsome Lexander is well-known as a procurer of slaves for the pleasure house of Vidaris, where Marja is to be schooled in the arts of seduction and carnal delight. Though frightened, Marja grows to love her master and discovers her nature as a true submissive. But when Lexander grants Marja her freedom, she discovers that not all are so kind. Like the warriors who care nothing for those they conquer - and show no mercy to those who oppose them.
Now, Marja must accompany a fallen noblewoman on a perilous journey to save the land that's so precious to them. And Marja will have to use all of her strength, skills, and cunning to survive in the war that is about to engulf them all.
"This first of two books launches a tale of erotic fantasy set in a world that loosely parallels the late Dark and early Middle Ages. Featuring vivid cultures and lots of action, this should appeal to fans of Jacqueline Carey, Terry Goodkind, and Storm Constantine." -Library Journal
"Wright's premise of a New World where the Viking settlements were successful is fascinating, and the blending of Viking culture with aboriginal is very well done." -Romantic Times Bookclub
Slave Trade is the first in a triology of sexy science fiction novels first published by Pocket Books in April 2003.
Human slaves can't defy their alien masters or can they? Rose Rico never believed the rumors, that the government was secretly selling human beings to the Alphas in exchange for advanced alien technology. The idea that human sex slaves were a luxury item throughout the galaxy was just too ridiculous to take seriously-until Rose found herself, along with hundreds of other human captives, bound for the far reaches of space, and compelled to cater to the depraved desires of her new alien masters. As a rule, pleasure slaves don't live very long, especially the stubborn ones. But Rose refuses to give up. Someday, somehow, she'll win back her freedom-or die trying!
In the second book of the "Slave Trade" trilogy, the galaxy heats up for Rose Rico and her renegade band of pleasure slaves while things heat up inside their ship! S'jen and G'kaan beat the Domain out of Qin territory, with disastrous consequences for their colony planets, while Rose leads a one-ship raid on the Domain. Despite being recaptured and forced to serve as pleasure slaves for the Alphas, Rose leads her crew through a dramatic series of twists and turns that leave the Solians aimed at their final target to liberate Earth!
In the third book of the "Slave Trade" trilogy, Rose Rico intends to kick the Domain out of the Sol system forever. But space battles don't help when it comes to overthrowing the corrupt rulers of Earth, who regularly send quotas of native pleasure slaves to the Domain. Rose and her renegade band of pleasure slaves will have to get creative in order to beat the enemies among them, while the weighty forces of the Domain are thrown against Earth in an effort to regain control of the galaxy's raw supply of nubile pleasure slaves.
