Weekend specials – The LOTTERY #free and STRANGER AT SUNSET #99cents

I have a couple of weekend specials to announce. ūüėČ

As mentioned in¬†an earlier blog, I’m offering freebies from my¬†backlist of erotic novellas.

The first is from my anthology, Spring into Summer. 


This story holds a special place in my heart because my experiences closely mirrored that of the protagonist.

My travels to Thailand as a young woman taught me the importance of sacrifice. It‚Äôs for this reason I chose the title ‚ÄúThe Lottery‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ a favorite story of mine by Shirley Jackson, which speaks to a different type of sacrifice. I knew little of what sacrifice meant until I met the women of Thailand. To a large extent, befriending the Thai women, some of whom were merely girls, taught me the greatest lessons about men.

It’s for this reason that I dedicated the story to them.










BONUS:  Stranger at Sunset, my psychological mystery/thriller is 99 cents until Sunday. Please share and spread the word. The more people who download the books, the better! Wishing you a wonderful, warm weekend, eden ♥

Turn up the heat in December with my #FREE #erotic novellas

It’s December, winter, snow, cold … please don’t remind me.

The only way to stay warm is to turn up the heat. For me, that means crawling under a blanket with a hot book.

While promoting my latest psychological mystery, Stranger at Sunset, I’ve not paid much attention to my backlist of erotic books, so I’m turning up the heat this month by offering 4 of them FREE on Amazon. Each novella is included in one of my two anthologies‚ÄĒFall into Winter and Spring into Summer.¬†I thought it’d be fun to offer one free from each season!

From sweet romance to BDSM m√©nage, my novellas cover the spectrum of heat. Download what you like. I’ll make an announcement right before their free days to remind you. Here’s a list of what to expect.

* * * *

Unlocking the Mystery

From: Spring into Summer (Spring)

Sweet and romantic. This is a unique story for lovers of words. An erotic tale with no sex Рgo figure.

Heat meter: 5/10

* * *

The Norwegian

From: Fall into Winter (Winter)

Whimsical and redemptive. A Norwegian athlete and a Canadian writer meet for the first time, but it feels oddly familiar. An erotic thriller during Christmastime in the Great White North.

Heat meter: 7/10










* * *

The Lottery 

From: Spring into Summer (Summer)

Creative and culturally-diverse. Thailand is where a young North American woman learns about eroticism. She also discovers what she will do in the name of friendship.

Heat meter: 7/10










* * *

Act Three

From: Fall into Winter (Fall)

Kinky, wild, and raunchy. This story pushes the envelope with two men, one woman, and a New York City apartment equipped for adult play. And there’s a twist. ūüėČ

Heat meter: 9/10

The Lottery is FREE Sept. 17 – 18 – 19

Hi, lovely readers, I have three items to share.

(1)¬†The Lottery is FREE on Amazon Sept 17, 18, 19.¬†This novella is the last story in my anthology Spring into Summer and¬†takes place in Thailand. You’ll have a chance to stay warm a bit longer before the official end of summer. ūüėČ

If you’ve always thought erotica was nothing more than sex, and/or you’ve¬†never read my erotic writing, then this is a great story to introduce you to my style.

The Lottery holds a special place in my heart and the introduction in the book will explain why.

Grab it and tell your friends. Why not send a gift to a friend? You can send as many as you like! Book sales (whether FREE or paid) are helpful for authors, so I want to give away as many copies as I can!

If you like the book, a review on Amazon is always appreciated. I’m a bit shy on those right now.¬†‚ô•


FREE Sept 17, 18 & 19

A most unusual lottery occurs in the Land of Smiles.

Westerner, Sierra Zhao, travels abroad and finds herself immersed in a culture with values very different to her own. Set in an exotic red-light district of Thailand, THE LOTTERY explores themes of sacrifice, friendship, and eroticism.

The Lottery


A story close to my heart

“The Lottery”¬†closes out my anthology and takes place in beautiful Thailand amid the hustle and bustle of Walking Street, Pattaya‚ÄĒa mile-long tourist area lined with massage parlors, go-go bars, and nightclubs.

It’s the perfect setting for a young Asian woman and a savvy Dutch nightclub owner. Sierra and Theo have an unusual business arrangement. Depending on the outcome of their experiment, it will either be a huge success, or it will leave Sierra vulnerable to numerous men.

Of the four stories in this book, this one is closest to my heart and brings back wonderful memories of friendships formed long ago.

flourishA Few Reviews

“… I really enjoyed the mixture of romance and sizzling erotic scenes in this story….” ~¬†Jersey Girl Sizzling Book Reviews


“The setting was unique and how the tale unfolds is definitely not something you come across every romance novel. It was a good way to end the book, and honestly, I wanted more when I reached the finish line.” ~ Masquerade Crew


“…’The Lottery’ takes an exotic, slightly dangerous turn as a woman explores her need to experience life outside the constraints of normalcy, opening up opportunities for friendship, understanding and even love…”¬†~ Beach Bum Books


Comment to WIN!

Have you been to Thailand or in an exotic red-light district? Feel free to comment about your experience or about this post in general.

I will connect with the winner privately by June 5th.

Thanks to all who’ve dropped by and shared a comment these past weeks,
