Cecilia Tan transcends time, space, gravity, and cultural norms in her line of work: erotic science fiction,” according to the San Francisco Weekly. Susie Bright calls her “simply one of the most important writers, editors, and innovators in contemporary American erotic literature.”
Tan always considered herself a writer, but her career took off in 1992 when she self-published a chapbook of three kinky science fiction stories entitled Telepaths Don’t Need Safewords–and thus Circlet Press was born. Since that time Circlet Press has published over 70 books of erotic fantasy & science fiction edited by her, with many more on the way, and in her own writing career she has written everything from short stories to paranormal romance novels.
Her books include Black Feathers (HarperCollins, 1998), The Velderet (Circlet, 2001), White Flames (Running Press, 2008), Mind Games (Ravenous Romance, 2009; Red Silk Editions, 2010), The Siren and The Sword (Ravenous Romance, 2009; Red Silk Editions, 2010), Royal Treatment (Torquere Press, 2009) and others. Tan has also edited numerous erotica anthologies for other publishers, including the Lambda Literary Award nominated Women of the Bite (Alyson Publications, 2010), Sex In The System (Thunder’s Mouth Press, 2006), The MILF Anthology (Blue Moon Books, 2005), Cowboy Lover (Carroll & Graf, 2007), Bites of Passion (Ravenous Romance/Red Silk Editions), SM Visions (Masquerade Books), and many others. Her stories, essays, and articles in have appeared in dozens of magazines and anthologies including Best America Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Best Women’s Erotica, Playboy Online, The Mammoth Book of New Erotica, On A Bed of Rice, Dark Angels, Penthouse, Ms. magazine, Asimov’s, Nerve, Gothic.net, Fenway Fiction, Periphery, and many more.
Her online serial novel, Daron’s Guitar Chronicles, won the Rose & Bay Awards for crowdfunded fiction in 2010, and Like a Thorn, an anthology of BDSM-themed fairy tales she co-edited with Sarah Desautels won the NLA: International writing award for BDSM-positive fiction from 2009. She is the recipient of the NLA:I Lifetime Achievement Award and in 2010 was inducted into the Saints and Sinners Hall of Fame for GLBT writers and editors.

Hey, I'm just writing to say that I was very impressed with this title. The writing is razor sharp on this one. I have listened to a bunch of these titles by now and this is certainly one of the best. I have always been a Jezebel fan and this is truly a gift to all of her fans. Like I wrote earlier, the writing is extra crisp and as usual her delivery is perfect. It always amazes me how there are some many ways to describe love making and make it set apart from other recordings. Also, I like the holiday flair of this title. You can practically see Jezebel making the snowbound travel to pleasure you. There is a bubble bath scene that gracefully leads to an amazing romp of missionary sex on a bed. This title will effortlessly help a man visualize his crush in the most romantic and comforting way possible.

This remains one of my favorites from Essemoh to this day. The setup for the scenario is perfectly done and does well to escalate to the intimate reunion with the one that "got away". Essemoh is very sweet, tender, and affectionate and for me personally, that's an automatic favorite.
