Like her famous namesake, Laura was born, raised and still resides in historic Providence, Rhode Island. This Lovecraft's writing however, brings thrills of a completely different kind! As her photo states, erotica’s bad girl is not for the faint of heart. Although she has penned some sexy fun in the categories of group sex and general erotica, Laura has made her bones in the realms of hardcore BDSM and truly Taboo tales. Currently Laura is best known for two dark and sexy series. Laura’s original masterpiece is the infamous (and banned on several sites) BDSM/Incest crossover Broken. This unique series has set the standard for not only taboo sex, but dark romance as well. The current series is Tales of the Circle featuring a group of wealthy, powerful and sexually dominant men and women who rule the boardroom as well as the bedroom. The Circle has moments of both sweet romance as well as some of the roughest sex scenes this side of safe, sane and consensual. Her latest edition to the Circle Mythos Dark Genesis also contains aspects of erotic horror. These works and many more can be found on Smashwords!

Intriguing BDSM Novel of Sexual Politics
TALES OF THE CIRCLE: BOOK ONE is a brilliantly written book concerning the Byzantine world of sexual politics in an exclusive BDSM club. Craft has penned an erotic novel full of compellingly intelligent characters and erotically charged scenes that do not romanticize the hardcore elements of the BDSM life style. This book is not your sugar-coated, many shades- of- whatever type of BSDM erotica, but a novel that depicts the BSDM world with truth and emotional complexity. In some respects, this novel is reminiscent of Laura Antoniou’s series THE MARKETPLACE.
While the characters of Justine and Tyler are written with intelligence and verve, it is the beautiful but emotionally damaged Mark Phillips that is the stand out character and the main reason to read this novel. In character of Phillips, Craft has created a memorable anti-hero of such beauty and heartbreaking complexity. Phillips’s sexual energy cannot be contained but is a force of nature.
Clearly, the author does not intend for Phillips to be a romance novel style hero. Not to give away any of the plot points in this review, but Craft has the ingenuity and integrity to not sanitize Mark Phillips’s past and character. Craft portrays Phillips as a dangerous bad boy with all the beauty of a fallen angel and the mercurial nature of a rising thunderstorm—and curiously at his most compelling and heartbreaking in the jagged points of his scarred psyche.
I highly recommend Tales of the Circle: Book One to any reader that love enjoys deliciously edgy and intelligently written erotica.
