Two new audiobooks

2 SFH books

I have two of my books newly out in audiobook format and I’m so excited. The books are somewhat different in style and content.

Lovers in Their Fashion is – according to my editor at Mandrill Press – deliciously romantic, delightfully amusing and explicitly sexual. Ooh 🙂

The brilliant narrator Missy Cambridge certainly brings out the humor in this extract, when Merrill is describing what she loves about her new man, Bolivian Tony Frejus – and, in particular, which bit of him she likes most (oolalaa)

Find the book on Audible here in the USA and here for the UK.

The Transformation of David is somewhat different because: it’s a gender swap story (but with a twist); it’s shorter than Lovers in Their Fashion, which is a full length romance; and it’s a lot more outspoken, sexually speaking. You can find a snatch (yes, yes, I know and it’s appalling but I just couldn’t resist the pun) here. 

The book itself is on Audible here in the USA and here for the UK.

I’m so excited! Two of my books have been turned into audiobooks and I expect both of them to be available on Audible, Amazon and iTunes in lots of time for Christmas.

The Transformation of David is one of the sexiest books I’ve written – and it’s nice and short. Listen to the sampler here. Because Audible won’t let us, we haven’t included anything in any way naughty in that snippet – but now listen to this extract. You get the feeling? It’s erotic, it’s transgender – it’s sexy as hell. The narrator is the very talented Audrey Lusk and – believe me – she does it justice.

Lovers in Their Fashion is a different beast entirely. It’s a full length novel (you can read more about it here) and the accent is not on erotica but on the romance. That’s what it is – a contemporary romance. But, I suppose because I wrote it, there’s sex there. Quite a lot of sex. I didn’t hesitate to describe it and the wonderful narrator Missy Cambridge didn’t hesitate to speak the words just as I meant them to be spoken. Not sure what I mean? Well, here’s a sweet little extract that will show you.

I expect both of these audiobooks to be available for download before the end of November, though the actual date is in the hands of ACX, the company that handles the conversion. I’m giving away Audible download coupons FREE to the first 20 people who subscribe to my mailing list using this form:

Young Couple in Bed

Young Couple in Bed

The Transformation of David and Other Stories: The S F Hopkins Collection Volume 1 was published today for Kindle and the Kindle Subscription Library. WARNING: Contains explicit sexual activity. If that is not for you, don’t read this book. Every variety of sex – willing, forced, straight, LGBT, TG – is here in the form of a novella, a short story and two full length novels. The contents are:

The Transformation of David – a 48 page novella
The Chakin teach Andrew Matthews how to transfer people between bodies. Breaking a solemn promise, he turns his daughter, Lottie into David Walters in order to seize David’s fortune–and, along the way, enjoy the carnal pleasures of the beautiful female body that was forbidden him. The Chakin cross the seas to release David from his bondage as a woman, and David is grateful to them…but the gratitude is not total. Has David, in becoming a man once more, lost more than he gains?

To whet your appetite, here’s how it begins:
It was a wicked thing they had done to him. He knew that. Wicked. As he lay on his front in this beautiful female body that he had been trapped into, skirt raised to his waist, a hand playing gently over his bottom, he knew that he should hate the person who had done this. She sat on the bed beside him in the body of the young man he had so recently been, and she toyed with him. Through the soft silk of his panties her thumb traced the space between his firmly rounded bottom cheeks. Her hand pressed on, down, down, until the tips of her fingers grazed the lips of his sex. Lips that he knew were moist with longing. A sex that ached to be entered once again.
Her head moved down, close to his own. She nibbled the lobe of his ear; she kissed him gently on the back of his neck. Her other hand was now in play, sliding beneath the waistband of his panties. ‘You want me, don’t you,’ she whispered. ‘You want to be fucked again. Turn over, my little darling. Let me give you what you crave.’
He rolled onto his back. Her hand now was right inside his panties, drifting over the smooth skin of his stomach, stroking where the fine hair had once been until she shaved it off, sliding down between the legs he opened wide to help her debauch him. ‘That’s it, my sweet,’ she murmured. ‘Open for me.’ She slipped a finger into his yearning sex, finding with her thumb the little nubbin, stroking it erect. He put his arms on her shoulders, reaching upwards, looking for a kiss. She obliged, pressing her lips against his, pushing her tongue into his mouth, searching for his own.
He lifted his bottom as she took down his panties and threw them aside. He lay, legs splayed, knees raised as she undressed without haste. Then with her knees she pressed his thighs further apart. Her cock rested for a moment on the moist lips of his sex. Then she pushed forward and he, helpless in the hands of one bigger and stronger than him; helpless also in his overwhelming need; was filled once more. She rode him, that handsome cock driving furiously in and out of his cunt, whipping him on towards his climax, his mind empty now of anything but this, on and on until the sudden, devastating leap over the waterfall into some unknown, unnameable nirvana, and he collapsed beneath her as she pumped her seed—his seed—deep into his honeyed cavern.
He was a man, desexed and used like a woman. Everything he had been raised to do and to be had been taken from him. He should hate the person who had done this to him.
So why did he feel this aching, remorseless need?

The Binding A full length novel of 168 pages.
A diary and a cache of letters from a hundred and twenty years ago introduce Caroline and James to the sad story of their forebears who gave up the people they loved out of Victorian ideas of honour and what was fitting. Are they doomed to do the same? In 1893, Captain Rodney McKenna chaperoned the young Melissa Blaze to India – he to rejoin his regiment and she to find a husband. Melissa falls in love with the Captain and the Captain with her, but his sense of honour forbids him acting on his feelings and the journey ends in disaster, with the Captain stripped of his rank and Melissa banned from returning to England. Now, in 2013, their great great grandchildren, Caroline and James, find themselves in the same dilemma. Caroline has led what can only be called a dissolute life. Can she overcome her past to accept the love that is offered her?

Lovers in Their Fashion A second full length novel, this time of 10 pages.
Their love is as strong as ever – but can it survive the dreadful secret that Alice Springer has been hiding all this time? Alice ended her relationship with John Pagan, the love of her life, because she had done something she believed he could never forgive. When they meet again after ten years, she knows she wants him back. But before she can confess her secret, he learns it in the worst possible way from another source – and this time it looks as though their chance of happiness together really is over. Do they between them have the power to change their fate?

The Dream A short novella of 19 pages.
Christine is nearly 40 and divorced from a husband who took no care of her sexual needs. She has dated occasionally since the divorce but never taken a man into her bed. Prim and demure on the surface, her nights are filled with The Dream in which she surrenders her chastity. On holiday, she longs to fulfil the dream with a man staying at the same hotel–but he goes home and Christine gives up hope. Then the chance to live the dream comes from an unexpected quarter. Christine has to decide whether to pass the chance up, or let it happen.

Beam me up, Spotty

I’ve lived in Abu Dhabi for a number of years now and if you’d asked me last week I’d have said I was here for the foreseeable, but now…I don’t know. Of course I know the drawbacks here and there are chances I don’t take, places I don’t go. I wrote about one of the risks a woman on her own faces in a culture where women are less than men and Christians than Moslems; it’s available here as a free story and, believe me, I never put myself at risk of what happened to her. Local men are always asking to be my FB friend and I always decline. I know that nothing can shake their conviction that a western woman must be a whore and there for them to enjoy. You’ll never see me in a short skirt, drinking too much in Trader Vic’s. I don’t walk home at night from the Marina. But set against that the calm, polite way of life and the sheer niceness of the Emirati people. To say nothing of the warm winters.

It isn’t even as though marriage is an issue. I’ve been married, I put an end to it and I don’t want to try it again, so the fact that I’m unlikely to meet The One here isn’t a problem.

But…as I say, I don’t know. Well, actually, I do. Writing is important to me and I can’t use my real name when I write and I’d like to. I really would. My next erotic novel, The Unquiet House, will be out at the end of the year and I’d really like to be able to hold it in my hand, show it to people and say, “This is mine. I wrote this.” And, here, I can’t do that.

So today I gave my sponsor twelve months notice. (Your sponsor is your employer—the person who speaks for you so that you can get a visa that gives permission to work). He assured me that I can take it back any time I want, but at least now I know the clock has begun to tick. It wasn’t a sudden thing—I’ve been tossing it around for months.

So now I have another choice. I grew up in Toronto and I the only passport I have is Canadian but I have an apartment in Highgate, west London. (That’s London, England not London, Ontario). When my twelve months are done, if I still want to leave—where do I go?

It’s a good time to be a woman

the-binding-coverWhen I published The Binding, I wrote this on Amazon:

Women in the Western world are living now through the best time they have ever known. I realise that there will be some who argue with me and accuse me of not being a Feminist, but I stand by the statement. It’s true. What I set out to do in this book was to show the changes in the way women are treated now and how they were treated a century or so ago. I started with two female characters, both of whom Society might see as somewhat dissolute though I hope their underlying humanity shines through; my intention was to compare the way one was dealt with at the end of the nineteenth century with how the other fared in the twenty-first. Then I added two men, one a model of Victorian manliness and one with some pretensions to being a “New Man”.

The story always comes first with me. My characters will make love, because that’s what people do in real life, and I don’t hesitate to show the love-making in graphic detail, but what most interests me is: How are they feeling while they’re doing it? And WHY are they doing it? People in real life have sex for all sorts of reasons, and so do my characters. In another of my books, Lovers in Their Fashion, the time is today, but still we have a man and a woman struggling to find their way to each other. There’s probably a little less sex in that one. The Unquiet House, coming later in the year, goes back to the Victorian/modern day split and is probably the most sexually explicit of all my books to be published this year.

I got a nice review from Manic Reviews:

The Binding by S F Hopkins is an enjoyable read. In the beginning I felt just Rodney and Melissa’s story. It had more substance. However, as the story went on I came around to Caroline and James. Still Rodney and Melissa were my favorites in this book. I like how the past and present intertwined with each other. There was good balance between the past and present. Readers who like historical romance stories with a happy ending and don’t mind some spice should check out this book.

But the review I got today on Amazon really made me feel I’d hit the mark and said what I’d wanted to say in the way I’d wanted to say it:

***** Five Stars Excellent Historical Erotica

I loved this book. There is an interweaving between present and past as Caroline and James are introduced, by way of handwritten letters (they used to do that), from Captain Rodney McKenna, of the Indian Army, and the diary of Melissa Blaze, the great great grandmother of James. Of what significance are these letters and this diary? Captain McKenna states “…because I desire that one, at least, of those that know me shall know the truth behind the calumnious statements of me… with instructions that they be opened one hundred and twenty years from today.”

These letters and diary are of an erotic nature that Caroline and James feel compelled to act upon. It is a brilliant premise to base a story on, similar to the 2004 movie, The Notebook. I found this to be an excellent read. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next, and why.
