When she’s hired as the home care worker to an injured celebrity, she couldn’t care less about Zana’s carefully constructed image. She only sees a rich, spoiled brat. Once Lacey and Zana learn to respect each other, they actually get along – and maybe more than that. Can Zana win over the one person who sees the real her?

A chance meeting with Alex Maris, a florist who delivers a flower feature to the office every week, opens Taryn’s eyes and shows her a different path.

She’s beautiful and kind, and she’s living the blissful and fulfilled life that Taryn is after.

If Taryn doesn’t figure her path out soon she might just break down. Will Alex and her farm show Taryn how to find herself and find the love that’s eluded her for so long?

 

LAST MINUTE MERMAID

by Tallulah Burns
Available in Kindle Unlimited

When Kasey Martin takes a last minute gig to help out a friend whose catering company is in danger of going under, the last thing she expects is that her job is to be a live centerpiece for a lavish seafood buffet…dressed as a mermaid. It was not the type of thing she expected when she became an actress! She also doesn’t expect to meet the centerpiece of the other buffet table, a gorgeous siren whose name (honest to god) is Lorelei. While Kasey finds the whole experience awful and embarrassing, Lorelei finds it hilarious, and she finds Kasey wonderful. Lorelei is the most amazing woman Kasey has ever met, but she has been hurt too many times and is afraid to take a chance by falling for her. As they work together to help their friend (who soon has bigger and more dangerous problems than a failing catering company) they find themselves irresistably drawn to each other. Kasey wonders what beautiful, confident Lorelei could see in her, but despite herself begins to hope. Is it possible that a beautiful sea siren could fall in love with a last minute mermaid?

 

LOVE UNSCRIPTED

by Emma Collins
Available in Kindle Unlimited

As Riley Hill’s thirtieth birthday approaches, she’s finally ready to make some changes in her life.

She might be a world famous actress, but she’s far from where she wants to be.

Screenwriting has always been her dream, not acting.

There was also the small matter of coming out.

When Laura Foley is approached at a coffee shop by an attractive young woman who wants to turn her book into a movie, she’s both flattered and stunned.

This was the first time anyone had ever complimented her work in person and not via an online review.

Laura’s even more shocked when she finds out who that woman really is, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

 

SCREEN KISS

Addy Tornado wishes her love life was as dramatic as her name. A true romantic, Addy lives for the movies and yearns for a mate who is as beautiful, sexy, witty, and as smart as the heroines on the screen. Of course that someone would also have to put up with her OCD about color coordination…

Mazie Midnight has one dream—to finish her Master’s program in music performance. She reinvents herself and moves to the west coast to attend Cammon University, hoping a new name and a new start will be what she needs to face the one barrier keeping her from a degree: terrible stage fright.

Mazie takes a job at the Bijou Theater, Addy’s favorite place in the whole world, and the two clash immediately over Mazie’s re-arrangement of the colorful candies. Mazie meets none of Addy’s expectations in a mate, and Addy sees Mazie as nothing more than an adversary…until Mazie opens her mouth to sing.

Believing the world should hear Mazie, Addy vows to help her overcome her stage fright. But can she see Mazie as someone to love? Will they ever share anything as perfect as a screen kiss?

EROTICA

 

WILD RIDES AND OTHER LESBIAN EROTIC ADVENTURES

by Sacchi Green

Sex, adventure, and wild rides—some literal, some journeys of the mind and heart. There’s something for everyone here. How about a mechanical bull at a country-and-western bar in 1980s Amsterdam? An army jeep in Vietnam in the 1960s? A Chinese pirate ship far out in the Pacific in the 1930s? A hot air balloon soaring above post-Civil War Wyoming? These rides transport you through time as well as space.

In more contemporary settings, you can find pent-up passion behind prison walls, a reunion of rivals in a steamy sauna, and a couple both wounded and bonded by modern warfare. There’s plenty of lust and banter, as well as mighty draft horses at a county fair, and a visit with honeymooners in Paris with a fetish for gargoyles. Add a ghost story on a Montana ranch, a lovely vampire in the Old West, the occasional dragon, a noir tale of sex, life, and afterlife in New York City, and you’ll find a variety of characters and settings with a seamless merging of sex, romance, and narrative.

Join Lambda winner Sacchi Green for a ride through the second collection of her own work.
