As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wrote WHTH after a friend of mine told me about a dream she had. I thought it held the seed of a good story, and she gave me permission to use it. The story that grew from that inspiration is nothing like what her subconscious originally came up with.
Elise Craft is a well-bred Victorian lady who would rather study the flora and fauna of England than play the social games of the ton. Then she makes an exotic, and erotic, discovery on the border between everyday England and Faerie.
WITH HEART TO HEAR is an erotic beauty and the beast tale. It was published several years ago in SUM 3:The 2006 Zircon Anthology of Speculative Romance. For this release it has been re-edited and given a gorgeous cover by Rae Monet. I’m hoping this will be the first of a series of sensual fairy-tales. Two that I have in mind are variants of the Princess and the Pea, and the Nutcracker (no pun intended). For now I’ll bring them out individually as digital releases, but if they prove popular I’ll put them in a collection and publish them in paper format.
Do you have a favorite fairy-tale you’d like to see “romanticized?”
I want to wish all my readers a joyful, healthy, and prosperous holiday and new year. Thank you for reading!
I’ll be visiting with out-of-town family, so I won’t be posting on my regular schedule for the next week or so. “See” you next year!
