Miami Book Fair International's Sexiest Events: Game of Thrones Erotica and More

The Last Nude by Ellis Avery
Avery breathes life into history by recanting the affair between noted Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka and her young muse, Rafaela. The Booklist review says, "Against that brightly pigmented background, this artist-model lovers' tale is as subtle and seductive as the silk Rafaela 'listens to with her hands' as she designs a slip for her beloved, as stirring as Rafaela (whose survival depends on her beauty), radiant after her first experience of sex for pleasure, seeing Paris as 'a rose-windowed city,' and thinking, 'This always. Just this.'" Sounds good to us.

Avery reads from The Last Nude on Sunday, November 18.

The Holy Toledos.
Holy Toledo
Iconic couple Ruben and Isabel Toledo deliver a deliciously tempting trifecta. The two have jointly penned a memoir, Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love, and Fashion. Each is an accomplished artist, Isabel a designer and Ruben an illustrator. And lastly, the couple exudes an urbane sexiness that can (and will) curl your toes.

The two will speak at the Freedom Tower this Sunday at 7 p.m.

Get your Game of Thrones on.
As if MBFI hasn't delivered its share of sexy authors and novels this year, it has also created a sexy panel -- The State of Erotica -- taking place Saturday, November 17 at noon. Erotic elements in literature will be discussed by five authors, including:

Mitzi Szereto, editor of Thrones of Desire: Erotic Tales of Swords, Mist and Fire, an erotic anthology inspired by the "Games of Thrones" series.

Local author Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, whose last novel Magnolia involves a high-priced hooker who specializes in leading athletes.

The panel will be rounded out by novelist M.J. Rose, advice gurus Susie and Aretha Bright, and myself, editor of Girls Who Score: Hot Lesbian Erotica.

Who knew this year's MBFI would heat up this November?
