Give Me Thorns

by Elizabeth Andre

Megan, a long-haired femme lesbian with beautiful pale skin and chestnut brown hair, is having a very loud and public fight with her soon to be ex-girlfriend when a woman on a motorcycle comes to her rescue. Against her better judgement, Megan hops on, and they ride off into the setting sun.

Stevie, a handsome African American butch lesbian with a lock of blonde hair curling out of the front of her helmet, loves rescuing damsels in distress. Sometimes, she just gives them a ride home when they need it. Sometimes, she ties them up in her playroom when they are both ready to have some fun. At first, Megan is terrified of Stevie’s playroom, but soon admits that BDSM is something she’s always wanted to try. Stevie is initially willing to give Megan a chance, but isn’t sure about playing as hard as she really wants to with a total newbie.

Together they explore Megan’s limits as well as Stevie’s and discover that true love requires knowing yourself most of all.


Natural Exposure

by Koriana Brackson

Available in Kindle Unlimited

It’s business as usual for Kenzie in her boudoir studio. Every day, fascinating people of all genders stroll through and Kenzie has the privilege of making them shine. She’s photographed the gamut: sultry brides-to-be seeking a naughty gift for their spouse, the confidant trans person showing the world their true self, and triads locked in passion, each moment of their tender lovemaking on display.

Kenzie’s been a part of it all, but never has a client captivated her so completely, until SHE steps through the door.

Ripley never recuperated from the relationship that irrevocably changed her. Desperate to forget the past, she moves to the progressive town of Bijou Basin, pursuing a fresh start. While acquainting herself with her new life, she notices an advertisement for an erotic nude photographer. On a whim, she books a session, hoping the experience will help her reclaim her identity.

Sparks fly for both women, but Ripley discovers there’s more to Kenzie than meets the eye. Can Ripley accept Kenzie as she is, and does she want to date someone so complicated? Can Kenzie prove she’s worth it?

When Caroline Donovan and Nora Brody are assigned to the same unit of the FBI, they become fast friends. As they navigate through their careers, the connection they share changes and grows along with them. Their unique challenges, and favorite kinks, entangle them in ways neither expected.


5 Random things is our way of helping readers to get to know authors all the while having a bit of fun.

Here are five random facts about Max Ellendale.

1. I’m really bad at random facts. It took me many many minutes (longer…) to come up with these. I suppose that can be summed up as, “Sucks at talking about herself!”

2. Special interests fuel my fire. At any given moment, I will hyperfixate on a topic/subject/music/game, anything. My current special interest: music by Carolina Deslandes (a singer/songwriter from Portugal). Former special interest: quantum physics (RIP).

3. I met my wife through a shared fandom. #Supercorp

4. I’m simultaneously a pop-punk/emo stan and super hippie. These two sides of myself live quite harmoniously (ha!).

5. My characters I most identify with currently are a mix of Lauren (of Maverick fame) and Samirah (Nocere). Sali is for always though…
