#12 Black Lipstick Kisses by Monica Belle

My Rating: 10 out of 10 stars

Angela McKie, aka Dusk, lives her Goth lifestyle as caretaker at All Angels, living rent-free in exchange for looking after the historic old church in East London, complete with graveyard, tombs, and all manner of Victorian decadence. In a single day, she has attracted the attentions of two very different men: Stephen, a serious young politician threatening to convert All Angels into a modern recreation center, and Michael, a brooding young artist who draws for fantasy, Gothic and horror zines. What she plans to do with them is anyone's guess....

This was one of the best erotica novels I've ever read. Angela's character really resonated with me since I hold her same outlook towards sex. And though I think I've mellowed somewhat in my late 30's, it brought back a ton of fond memories. *evil grin*

The author is a great writer, and has the uncanny ability to elicit atmospheric response with her vivid descriptions, particularly the descriptions of the various pieces in the church. I loved how I felt as if I was right there viewing it all through my own eyes. And the sex scenes were oh so hot!! I'll definitely be keeping my eye open for more from this author in the future.
