Last update 3 September 2010.

Victoria Janssen's next novel, The Duke and the Pirate Queen, will be published in December 2010 by Harlequin Spice.

Victoria attended a women's college and there discovered she enjoyed writing erotica. After selling several dozen stories under the name Elspeth Potter, she moved into novel-length erotica with The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover, December 2008; it's been translated into French and German. Her second novel for Spice, The Moonlight Mistress, features the early days of World War One and werewolves, and has been translated into Italian.

When not writing, Victoria lectures about writing and selling erotica at literary conferences, researches in libraries and graveyards, and blogs. She lives in Philadelphia.

She is a voracious reader, especially of historical romance, fantasy, and space opera, but has never once defeated the to-be-read pile at the foot of her bed. She loves to incorporate all of these genres into her own writing.

Frequent themes in her stories include role reversal, creating families and empowering women, usually through unconventional means.

She's a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Broad Universe, Romance Writers of America, and Novelists, Inc..

Victoria Janssen ne pourrait pas vivre sans livres, qu'elle dévore avec un insatiable appétit quand elle n'est pas elle-même en train d'en écrire: romances historiques, science-fiction et nouvelles érotiques, elle s'est essayée à tous les genres avec succès. Avec Leçons de plaisir, Victoria nous offre un superbe roman historique qui n'hésite à repousser les limites de l'érotisme.

Victoria Janssen hat bereits mehr als dreißig erotische Kurzgeschichten unter ihrem Pseudonym Elspeth Potter veröffentlicht. Soweit sie weiß, ist sie die einzige Autorin, die jemals eine Geschichte geschrieben hat, in der menschenfressende Schildkröten vorkommen. Die Herzogin, Ihre Zofe, Der Stallbursche Und Ihr Liebhaber, ist Victoria Janssens erster Roman. Wenn sie nicht schreibt oder liest, gibt sie Workshops über das Schreiben und Verkaufen von erotischer Literatur.

Victoria Janssen ci regala un esplosivo romanzo erotico che infrange ogni barriera della trasgressione. Sesso, intrigo e mistero sono i principali ingredienti di questa audace e insuperabile storia, che ci sfiora come la carezza sensuale di un amante e ci cattura come gli artigli di una lupa feroce.
