New Print Anthology: Perfectly Wicked!

I am so excited to share that all my Perfectly Wicked novellas--naughty re-imaginings of the stories of wicked women of fairy tale fame--are now all available in one print anthology. These are some of my first erotic stories and have a special place in my heart. I remember dashing out of the house when my now 6-year-old was still crawling and writing my heart out for two hours at Panera Bread Company every Saturday. It was a ritual I looked forward to all week, my time to work toward the goal of being published. My head nearly exploded when I found out "Main Attraction", the first in the series, had sold to Ellora's Cave.

Five years later, I am still thrilled to be working with EC, and feeling very lucky to have made that dream of publication a reality. Sniff!

Here's a little more about the stories in this book!

Main Attraction
Book One in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Edna Emily Argent Rella runs the Wicked Stepmother and her Stepsisters S&M parlor in Kingdom City, but she has a secret… She's not so terribly wicked. A dominatrix by necessity, rather than calling, she does her best to capitalize on her naughty reputation. After the smear campaign waged by her stepdaughter Cynthia, there aren't many other employment options.

Frank, the Captain of the Queen's Guard, has been sent to protect Edna from the stalker threatening her life. Posing as a client, this dominant male soon realizes he's in for more trouble than he bargained for.

Because Edna is a born submissive. And Frank can't resist the urge to show her what she's been missing while on the Mistress side of the fence.
Sinfully Sweet
Book 2 in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Bella's a candy maker who's been framed for a horrible crime. Being accused of trying to boil children in a vat of peanut brittle has been bad for business, and even worse for her heart. Desperately trying to save her company, Bella's afraid the secret she's sworn to keep may force her to abandon her legacy as a beloved confectioner to the Kingdom.

Heath Miller makes toys — kinky sex toys. And he has a sweet tooth that's out of control. He'll do anything to convince Bella to create magnificent flavors for his edible underwear and flavored condoms…absolutely anything. But a simple seduction goes awry when Heath begins to lose his heart, and a hot and sticky encounter shows both lovers how quickly sweet can cross the line into sinful.
Bad Apple
Book 3 in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Some women are misunderstood, others are a misdemeanor waiting to happen…

Katarina was a very bad girl, but she spent five years in the dungeon paying for her crimes and made a vow to leave her wicked ways behind her. She's praying a makeover and a stint on Kingdom City's newest reality show, Real-Life Ways to Catch a King, will help her get back on her feet. Unfortunately the show's producer, notorious bad boy Serge, is making it hard for her to resist giving in to her naughtier nature…

Serge is looking to turn his life around. He wants a wife and a family and a place in respectable society. Taking up with a former wicked queen with a penchant for poison apples isn't on his agenda. But Kat quickly proves to be irresistible, and when a mutual affection for public passion turns into something more, he has to make a decision. Break the heart of the only woman he's ever loved or risk forever being known as a "bad apple".
Beauty Sleep
Part of the Perfectly Wicked series.

After accidentally cursing a princess to a hundred years of sleep, fairy Calliope La Fae couldn't get hired to enchant horse dung, let alone work as a court fairy to a royal family. The only way she made it to the castle was by way of the dungeon, and the only way she made it out with her life was by risking the use of her fractured magic for the first time in years.

And so a spell is cast, and two lovers enchanted…

King Aaron should be concentrating on saving his brother from Calliope's enchanted castle, but he can't seem to keep his mind on anything but the fairy herself. Whether it's in the castle bath, by the side of the road or tied to a tree — he'll take Calliope any way he can get her, again and again. Even when the spell is broken, he can't get the woman out of his mind. There's no way he'll let her end up the next victim of her own magic, no matter what he has to risk to save her from her own century of beauty sleep.

Thanks for reading!
