Here is more about 'The Submission of Giuliana'. . .
"As I lay there being taken by two men, my orgasm swept through me, yet it was for another who had pleasured me only in the realm of my mind."
Giuliana never dreamed life would lead her to where she is now-- serving as a courtesan in the swanky vampire theatre Sanguelascivia in Venice, Italy. Some days, she hates to admit, she loves her job-- what woman wouldn't enjoy being sexually pleasured in a variety of new ways every day? She has been serviced by some of the most mouthwatering men she has ever laid eyes on.
And still other days, she cannot believe she has lowered herself to this. Then there are the Vampire patrons to whom she is expected to submit and service privately after the shows. Her life at Sanguelascivia is in severe contrast to the simple life she once knew with her husband and child. But she no longer allows herself to think of them. It is too painful to face the loss.
Giuliana vowed she would never love again. That is, until she sees Vincenzo her first night at the theatre and something stirs deep within her. Night after night she aches as she watches him with other women, wondering when she will finally have her turn to be pleasured by him. The only way she is able to endure her performances with the other men-- and oft times women-- is to fantasize about him pleasuring her.
Will she ever feel him against her skin, feel his lips hot upon hers, feel him moving inside of her?
The Submission of Giuliana is an Erotic Novella focusing on an individual character from the Anam Céile Chronicles, a series which centers around true love, soul mates, self-discovery, loss, vampires, lust, and the faith in reincarnation set in the lush backdrops of rugged Ireland, beautiful, culturally rich Venice and Florence, Italy, and Morocco, amongst others. It can be read alone or in conjunction with the series.
Warning: Contains steamy Sensuality & Explicit Sexuality. Not intended for Readers below the age of Eighteen!
Here's what reviewers have said about 'The Submission of Giuliana':
Sexy little read
I was looking for something nicely naughty to read and I wasn't disappointed. Guys, this story has girl on girl, guy on girl, guy on guy, and guy on girl on girl. Oh, and vampires. DO YOU SEE WHY I WASN'T DISAPPOINTED? I got a little of everything. It was pretty hot. It has also piqued my interest in the other books in this series. I am intrigued. Very intrigued. Well played, Rosalind Scarlett. Well played.

Normally, I avoid erotica. I've tried a few times to read some, but mostly it just ended with me recoiling and wanting to use something drastic to get some of the images out of my head -like bleach. It's not that I don't like sex-scenes in a book, far from it, but I don't need it to be vulgar, crude or down-right porn. Rosalind took my opinion and turned it around. I was pleasantly surprised by her story and it was just the right kind of toe-curling for me. The characters are well written, their story touching and you're rooting for them to find each other, for there to be a happy ending. When closing the book, I found my mind wandering to Giuliana and Vincenzo, wondering what happened after the book ended. Hoping we would see them again. Well, I can tell you, this is not the last book by Rosalind I'm going to read - erotica or not.

Will leave you fanning yourself after reading! Steamy!
Rosalind Scarlett has written a novella that is sure to leave the readers fanning themselves from the steaminess that is contained within. Reading this novella definitely peaked my interest in wanting to find out more about the Anam Ceile Chronicles and learning more about Guiliana's life in her newfound world.

This is one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in a very long time. For me, it was a step outside my comfort zone in that I was reading a genre that was new to me. But we have to dip our toes some time, right?
Anyway, I'm glad I did. I found the story engrossing and developed a deep fondness for Giuliana. I felt her vulnerability and her sensuality. She is one of my favourite characters in a long time and I cared deeply what happened to her in the story. I loved too the historical setting and felt the author combined the erotic and historic content wonderfully well.
Essentially this is an erotic novel. I found the erotic content very tastefully delivered and felt it made for excellent reading. It was one of the rare occasions while reading a novel that I enjoyed such imagery and actually looked forward to more as the story progressed. For a writer to evoke such things in me requires a lot of talent and to me, Ms Scarlett clearly has that in abundance.
