"I'm an author based in far Northern California where I live with my family and pack of wild Siberian Huskies. (OK, they aren't wild, just crazy.)

I write erotic romance, primarily under the umbrella of speculative fiction. That term covers science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy and basically anything that has no basis in reality! LOL! The sexuality of my characters is fluid, so if you are turned off by menage or same sex (or opposite sex) interaction, please check the book blurb before you buy.

I've won the EPIC Award for Paranormal Romance with Blacque/Bleu, the Passionate Plume in Sci Fi Romance with An Uncommon Whore, and have either placed, finaled or been nominated for several other awards including the RT Reviewer's Choice (with Cherise Sinclair and Sierra Cartwright for Doms of Dark Haven) and the Rainbow Book Awards."

An Uncommon Whore won a 2010 Rainbow Award as Best Gay Sci-fi / Futuristic. Blacque Bleu won a 2011 Rainbow Award as Best Gay Paranormal / Horror. The Bacchi won a 2012 Rainbow Award as Best Bisexual / Transgender Sci-fi/Fantasy.

Publisher: Loose Id LLC (January 26, 2010)
Amazon Kindle: An Uncommon Whore

Pasha is a slave, whoring for travelers at the most dangerous bar on Warlan. He has no memory, no future of his own, yet deep inside Pasha knows that that he is meant for better things. The day that Pasha spots the dangerous pirate in the bar, he knows that he mustn't let the stranger slip away, regardless of what he must do to attract his attention.

Captain Griffin Hawke spent the greater part of a decade searching for his lost king, only to find Helios Dayspring crouched between his knees, swathed in the robes and shackles of a whore. Though he is appalled by the downfall of his king, the hardened officer finds himself falling for the allure of the sensual creature who has taken his place. Returning Helios to his position on the throne is the only right thing to do, yet Griffin knows that in doing so, he risks losing his lover forever.

Blacque/Bleu by Belinda McBride
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (October 12, 2010)
Amazon Kindle: Blacque/Bleu

Lukas Blacque is a deeply closeted werewolf, and almost more than anything in life, he desires his neighbor, Oliver Bleu. Oliver is a vampire who is slowly dying from insomnia. More than anything, he needs Lukas Blacque and the rich blood that flows through his veins.

On the day that Blacque makes an important commitment to his family and pack, he also succumbs to temptation and agrees to a passionate weekend with the alluring vampire. At sunset on Friday, it’s all about urgent lust and the drive to lose his virginity. When the sun rises on Monday, lust has shifted to love and devotion. He's not sure he can walk away, even for the commitment he's made. He's even less sure Bleu will let him go.

In Blacque’s world, vampires and werewolves make uneasy bedfellows, and a gay werewolf is an impossibility. In Bleu’s world, all living creatures are little more than vessels for food and sex. But in the mysterious and magical town of Arcada, the unexpected is always waiting right around the corner. Now Blacque and Bleu just need to survive long enough for Arcada’s magic to work for them.

The Bacchi by Belinda McBride
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (July 30, 2012)
Amazon Kindle: The Bacchi

The Bacchi Lefi Dhrahn lives a life of luxury and decadence, but is tortured by memories of a lost love. He survives the pain by surrounding himself with sex, beauty, and all forms of self-indulgence. When he meets the alluring Inspector Afton Teris, Lefi believes the detective will make a very nice addition to his string of conquests.

Afton Teris is a Valoran hermaphrodite, and like all members of his species, is stern, cerebral and disapproves of the frivolous prostitute. Afton orients as a male, but the beautiful Lefi Dhrahn stirs him sexually, making him question everything he knows about himself. To further confuse his emotions, Afton finds himself tempted by the forbidden pleasures surrounding the Bacchi.

When a kidnapping ring strikes close to home, the two go undercover on a brothel barge to investigate a slavery operation. There, Lefi is confronted by painful memories from his past, while Afton is faced with a horror that threatens his future, and perhaps his very life. Their survival lies with one another, but only if Lefi can set aside his pain and listen to his heart.
