Product description

Review

"An emotional whirlwind romance. Axel is as strong and sexy as readers expect in a rock-star hero without being an overly brooding jerk. The length he goes in order to win over emotionally closed-off Ricki will melt your heart."--RT Book Reviews

"Cecilia Tan writes erotic romance the way it was meant to be written: full of emotion, intensity, and chemistry that's so hot it burns the page. Taking the Lead is no exception; it's deliciously sexy and utterly satisfying."--Tara Sue Me, New York Times bestselling author

"Everyone knows Cecilia Tan is the queen of hot, but she's also the queen of wit and angst and voice. Taking the Lead is a book that grabs you by the collar and gives you flirty-eyes. It will tell you, 'Go sit, over there in the corner chair, and don't get up until you're done.' You will do it-absolutely and happily-because Cecilia knows exactly what you want."--Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard and Sweet Filthy Boy

"If you are a fan of the Billionaire Dom, you should not miss Slow Surrender. Cecilia Tan weaves a compelling and red-hot tale that will have readers eager for more."--http: //www.romancenovelnews.com/ on SLOW SURRENDER

"Loved, loved Slow Surrender and am waiting on pins and needles for book two, Slow Seduction to come out...another brilliant outing from Cecelia Tan...her characters are full of life and emotion, and so believable. Definitely a keeper!"--Night Owl Reviews on SLOW SURRENDER

"Move over EL James. Cecilia Tan's Slow Surrender is sinfully sweet and sublimely erotic. As with sipping a superb single-malt scotch served neat, you'll savor the slow burn as it builds to a deliciously unanticipated ... climax."--Hope Tarr, award-winning author on SLOW SURRENDER

"Seductive fun not to be missed! Cecilia Tan will make all your sexy wishes come true!"--Lisa Renee Jones, bestselling author of If I Were You on SLOW SURRENDER

"The sex scenes here are once again as hot as they are imaginative."--RT Book Reviews on SLOW SEDUCTION

"Veteran Tan kicks her Secrets of a Rock Star series off with a sultry start. With a satisfying plot and an engaging cast of characters, the only thing slowing readers down will be their refractory period."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

I write about my passions, which include baseball, erotica, gourmet food, martial arts, tea, and travel. I write fantasy, science fiction, erotic fiction, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, BDSM romance, and anything else that stimulates my imagination.

I've been writing fiction professionally for over 25 years and lately I've started racking up awards--kind of neat! I was awarded Career Achievement in Erotica and the Pioneer Award in Erotic Fiction in 2015 by Romantic Times. My BDSM romance SLOW SURRENDER from Hachette/Grand Central Publishing/Forever won the RT Reviewers Choice Award in erotic romance, and the Maggie Award for Excellence from the Georgia chapter of the Romance Writers of America. A bunch more are listed at my website.

I'm the author of numerous other novels, many published as erotic romance with fantasy and science fiction settings, others published as sf/fantasy with erotic elements, some as erotica... which means I never know what to answer when people ask what genre they are. Fortunately here on Amazon they can be ALL of the above!

My work spans sexualities the same way it spans genres. I write heterosexual, gay, bisexual, and trans characters, and the eroticism runs the gamut from vanilla to bondage to transcendental magical sex.

I'm the author of the Magic University series, a four-book contemporary fantasy about a hidden magical school inside Harvard. The Prince's Boy is my erotic gay high fantasy BDSM swashbuckling romance (not kidding). Daron's Guitar Chronicles is my award-winning gay "coming out and coming of age in the 1980s" series. Struck by Lightning is my BDSM contemporary trilogy from Hachette. SECRETS OF A ROCK STAR is another three-book series of kinky rock star romances from Hachette. There is more in the works, too, of course! I'll be starting an urban fantasy/paranormal series next year with Tor Books called THE VANISHED CHRONICLES.

In the erotic short story realm, I've been published everywhere from Ms. magazine to Penthouse to Nerve, and I'm in many, many anthologies and the Best American Erotica series. Susie Bright called me "simply one of the most important writers, editors, and innovators in contemporary American erotic literature."

I've also edited many anthologies including Women of the Bite, Cowboy Lover, Sex In The System, Wicked Pleasures, SM Visions, for many different publishers, and many many books and ebooks for the independent publishing house I founded, Circlet Press. Those include Best Fantastic Erotica, Erotic Fantastic, Like an Animal, Like Crimson Droplets, and many others, both for Kindle and in paperback.

In science fiction/fantasy I have been published in Asimov's magazine, Strange Horizons, Absolute Magnitude, and many other places.

I also write and edit baseball nonfiction under the name "Cecilia M. Tan."
