At Their Command


Scarlett Sanderson is one of my go-to authors for kinky erotica, and this short story did it for me. Granted, it was a Christmas story, and it is July, but it's always nice to have a little holiday spirit during a totally different holiday. Hope, our...

Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of Einstein's Daughter

The Knocked Up Plan


Pregnancy and baby romances aren't my cup of tea and that's my straight-out admission about my whole stance on the issue. Make it the central plot around which a relationship is built and I'm out of the door quicker than my own shadow can cringe and wave...
