A Murmuring of Bees

Story: Nectar
Poem: Love Song to a Bee

The stories in this anthology explore John Watson and Sherlock Holmes as lovers as well as sleuths. The stories are set in dozens of times and places, from Victorian settings, riffing on canon, to modern interpretations. I have both a short story and a poem in the book. Other writers include Kerry Greenwood (the Phryne Fisher series) and Atlin Merrick (The Night They Met).

The proceeds of this book go to the It Gets Better Project.

Birds of a Feather

Alice Taylor Stewart is an engineer. Nerida Cordo is a linguist. Together, they travel the world building bridges both literal and figurative. They also delight in getting up to all kinds of mischief. They’re practically a two-woman St Trinians.

And the other thing in which they take delight?

Each other.

Birds of a Feather

Sky High, Bone Deep

Rory and Lily have been married for five years, and they have special plans to celebrate their anniversary: a little game involving a collar and a leash and some silky underwear…for Rory. A little light bondage can be just for fun — but beyond the play, there is love, bone deep and bright as the stars.

An enjoyable, short erotic romance between an already established couple. Great, quick read. `~ Erinne, Goodreads

Now out, recently dumped and still harbouring regret for his lost love, Fate and Cooper’s cousin Kate are about to intervene, via a book club meeting where the book under discussion is … Persuasion.
