Not even men of the cloth are exempt from God’s greatest gift: Love. In Sacred and Profane: Priest Erotic Romance, you’ll find stories of clergymen stepping outside their vows, pastors weaving divinity into their seductions, nuns and parishioners confessing to their body’s every earthly desire, and more.
Are you aroused by the blasphemous dance of sex and religion? The dangerous edge of eroticism contained within submission to something beyond oneself? The taboo juxtaposition of holy and sensual? Then Sacred and Profane welcomes you.

It’s always exciting to have a new anthology coming out which has one of my stories in it. In the past I’ve been kind of (okay, extremely) shite about alerting you to when that happens, but I’ve made a promise to myself to be better at this sort of lark.
Perfect time to start! Sacred and Profane: Priest Erotic Romance contains my story Down on My Knees… and in all honesty, it was a story I never thought I could write. The call for submissions Torrance had written was mightily tempting, but there was a niggling doubt in my mind – I usually stick into my safe corner of contemporary London-based erotica. Also, I know absolutely bugger all about priesthood apart from what Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series told me. Surely this was one not meant for me to try for?
But then, on the way home from work, an idea sprung in my mind. Just a little one. Along with a large and quite determined “OF COURSE YOU CAN TRY TO WRITE SOMETHING FOR THIS ANTHO, YOU NUGGET.”
And so I did. I’m very proud of this story, and this anthology, which contains stories by AMAZING folks such as Leandra Vane, Bronwyn Green and Sonni de Soto. I can but hope you buy and enjoy. Meanwhile, here’s a little bit more on my story, along with a teasing little excerpt…
Blurb for Down on My Knees
Opened and awakened to the earthly lust that lie within her, Sister Josephine is unable to move on from her desires and the priest who stirred them in her one night. When they meet again, will either be strong enough to escape their attraction?
Excerpt from Down on My Knees
Just under my right knee, visible only when you really looked for it, was the raised remnant of a scar. It didn’t hurt me… physically. But in my mind, every time I took to my knees to pray, regardless of whether I was alone or with the other sisters, its presence always took me back to that night. The night Campbell found himself at the crossroads between the two sides.
The one night we had together.
I was there in my mind now. In flesh, I was kneeling on a hassock for a moment of silence away from the din of the picnic. But in spirit…
My eyes were fixed on the large, ornate cross above the altar, on the stillness of Christ the Lord. But my thoughts drifted back to that one night.
