A little satisfacton behind the red door

I was contacted by a reader a few months ago, and she wanted to know if "the voice" from my short story SATISFYING AUDREY would ever get his own story. It percolated around in my head for a while, and, finally, Matthew has his own story. It's just a short story, and it's set along the same premise as SATISFYING AUDREY.  I believe every couple needs a fantasy or two to keep the romance alive, and my short stories work toward that theme.

Matthew was the voice in Audrey's story, where he pretended to be John, a husband who encouraged his wife to have a liaison with his best friend while he listened in.  At the end of the story, Matthew is left hanging just a little.  And this is his story.

A Spicy Short is Waiting Behind the Red Door Today

Today we open the Red Door and find a short and spicy read awaiting us!

Historical erotica with a touch of elegance . . .

Cordelia Markham may shine brightest among London's Glittering Impure, but she's also that rarity--a courtesan with a heart of gold. Once a year she sponsors the Courtesan's Ball, a night of fun, anticipation and opportunity for her many sisters.
Tonight is different, however, as her current lover has arranged an array of surprises. . . and he's shifting the focus of the night from the crowded ballroom and placing it firmly on her. . . 

The Courtesan's Ball: The Naughty Maid is a short story--one scene in a series of sensual scenes being played out at the annual Courtesan's Ball.

Even Bad Girls deserve a Happily Ever After

Finn was supposed to be the rebound guy, the one that got April Billingsworth over her breakup with her fiancé. Only one night turned into two, two nights turned into a week, then months of pure happiness. Now this former bad girl's ready to settle down and go the distance with the man she loves, until the secret Finn's been keeping from her comes to light.

There was only one rule, Private Investigator, Finn Kennedy lived by: Do not, under any circumstances, get involved with a client. That is, until he met his latest assignment, April Billingsworth, the current governor's daughter and Charlotte's most notorious bad girl. Not only has he broken his rule, but April has discovered his secret-he's been keeping tabs on her and reporting back to her father.

Devastated by the truth, April leaves Finn and tries to go on with her life, without the lying bastard. But Finn has other plans, he's determined to win April back. And this time, nothing's going to stand in his way.
