Welcome to the website of Janine Ashbless. I'm a writer of fantasy and paranormal erotica and - more rarely - scorching romantic adventure. I like to write about magic and myth and mystery, dangerous power dynamics, borderline terror, and the not-quite-human. And hot filthy sex, obviously...



The Prison of the Angels

Romance Novel: third in the Book of the Watchers trilogy

The third in my fallen angel trilogy, The Prison of the Angels, has been released by Sinful Press!
Named and Shamed
Rights to Named and Shamed have reverted with the closing of Sweetmeats Press - It has now been re-published with a lovely new cover by Sinful Press and I'm delighted.

The King's Viper
Rights to The King's Viper have reverted to me after the demise of Ellora's Cave Books - and it has become my first self-published work!


To my absolute delight I am immortalised on the "Islands of Erotica" in the Map of Literature by artist Martin Vargic. You should so buy this awesome best-seller of a book!

Luckily it seems to have dodged all the other large trees around and laid itself politely down doing the minimum of damage 😊

Circle of Life, eh?
