The Secret Library
With discreet covers and novella length stories this range offers fiction for those readers who like strong characterisation and a more developed relationship together with explicit, passionate sex.
The Xtrm range offers explicit BDSM and fetish themes where the endurance of pain or humiliation leads to sexual gratification. Other themes may include submission and domination, bondage and personal punishment. All content is consensual but characters may be pushed beyond their natural comfort zone.
Aimed at women and couples, Xcite offers a comprehensive range of mainstream short-story anthologies and erotic novels with mixed and varied themes. These may include some mild bdsm elements, multiple partners, and gay and lesbian themes.
Xcite are looking for variety in the themes with a high standard of writing. All sexual acts must be consensual and legal. Variety is the spice of life so giving your story an unusual setting, time period or style will help your chances of being accepted. We do accept stories from male writers and they can have a male POV but PLEASE remember they must celebrate female sexuality and be empowering to women.
Please note: Xcite are currently not accepting short story submissions.

Themes within this range can include explicit and intense BDSM but it must be clearly consensual. Some edgier scenes can include golden showers and breast suckling but no scat, bestiality, incest or non-consensual activity. No extreme violence (i.e. no insertion of weapons such as guns/knives).
