Leda at the Fire & Flesh

LEDA aT tHe At FiRE & FLesH

LEDA | BY AARONA GRIFFIN

YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. Sometimes the marriage bed can get a little bit, well, stale. Leda loves her wife Chrys. But a 50-hour work week in a downtown high rise and Saturday nights cuddled up on the couch watching yet another new release rom-com isn’t the life she imagined when they first got together. So Leda takes it as a sign when, on her way to work one morning, a flyer stapled to a pole on Market Street catches her eye. THE FIRE & FLESH: A UNIQUE PLAYSPACE FOR WOMEN. WELL-APPOINTED DUNGEONS, MAZES, A VARIETY OF SETS FOR MIND-BLOWING SCENES, AND OUR VERY OWN ONE-OF-A-KIND JUNGLE WILDERNESS, COMPLETE WITH A WORKING WATERFALL. CALL FOR INFORMATION. WE DO NOT KEEP LISTS, COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS. Gathering her courage, she makes the call.

EROTIC FICTION AUTHOR

Aarona Griffin is the bestselling author of the classic lesbian S/M romance, Passage & Other Stories, and Leda at the Fire & Flesh.

She spends a great deal of time adventuring deep in the wild woods of her imagination, searching for bold and courageous characters and interesting situations to put them in.

Aarona holds a degree in Creative Writing and delights in helping reluctant and beginning writers find their voice.

She would like to live in a well-heated castle with a spectacular view of the sea, two or three bearded dragons, a fully equipped dungeon, and access to a nearby cave with bats so each night she can watch both the sunset and their mad dash out into the night. In that castle, she will have the most comfortable bed, a writing desk in a beautiful, well-lit room with lots of windows, and, of course, her soulmate. Not necessarily in that order.

BeLieVAbLe CHaRacteRS TuRN Up THE HeAT

  • Erotic fiction is not famous for its character arcs, but the heat gets turned up when believable characters drive. This is true of Passage. Nina’s erotic experiences play out against her past and recent history, adding new layers of meaning to the piece as a whole. Of course, the sex is plentiful, exciting, and creative, but what makes the thrills stick in memory is the people involved and the elegant and beautiful language that holds it all together.

Leda at the Fire & Flesh

LEDA: AN EXceRPt

“We’ve been through a lot you and I, haven’t we?” Chrys said sweetly. “I’ll miss you tonight, punkin.” And she leaned in and kissed Leda’s soft mouth gently.

No tongue, of course, Leda noted silently to herself. We both have to go to work now, no time for noogies; that’s the morning excuse. And at night—it’s late, she’s tired, and we have to get up early, she says. But I’ll do you if you want me to, she’ll say, if you need me to!

Leda suddenly felt an overwhelming urge to pull Chrys to her roughly, to open her lover’s mouth wide with her own and probe deeply with her tongue that soft, warm cavern; to feed passionately and hungrily from her mouth. What she wanted was to rip off Chrys’s conservative clothes and run her fingernails over every inch of that soft, lotioned and perfumed skin until it reddened with anger at her roughness, at her cruelty; wanted more than anything at this moment to force her lover down on the cold kitchen floor and bite her wickedly all over, then tie her, naked, to the table and take her with wild abandon, with all the heat that burned beneath Leda’s skin; let out the desperate, aching need that boiled beneath the surface of Leda’s calm exterior, the need to make her woman scream with desire and pleasure, to let loose the groans and grunts and cries of wild animal passion under Leda’s fevered command...

PAssaGe: AN EXceRPt

"A huge black and white photograph of three beautiful women, nude, each in a different position of power or submission, filled an entire half of the far wall. Nina stared at the photograph, running her hand along the woman's curves, the stunning object of her desire: Carrie. She closed her eyes, imagining what the woman would feel like and remembering the past few months, the long nights–the obsession. Nina could almost feel herself on the bed in her room, feel the cool darkness. The room around her seemed to disappear as she remembered..."
