Girl Crush is an erotic female romance novella that brings to light that one time…
The one time you found yourself questioning your so-called sexuality, potentially risking your friendship. What if the feelings aren’t reciprocated?
Confusion and pain brings them closer together, feeding from one another’s strengths and thrusting them into each other’s arms.
Are the risks of their new-found love worth the result?
This novella caters to adults over 18 as it does contain a high level of consensual MF (1 scene) and FF sexual encounters.
Do you think that giving books away free works and why?
I think so, everyone likes something for free and it gives readers insight into what you write. Possibly drawing them in to read other musings you’ve written.
How has your writing evolved since your first book?
Very much so. I’ve perfected my technique and made it much easier for my editors.
What’s the one thing that has really surprised you since you started writing?
I’ve discovered my inner Mistress whom I didn’t know was there.
Are there misconceptions people have about your genre?
Yes, especially within the BDSM realm. There is a preconceived notion that BDSM is about abuse when it is the opposite. Any good Dom/Mistress knows their sub’s limits and always has their subs needs put first and foremost. BDSM is first and foremost about trust.
What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?
I went to Houston to meet Piper Kay and Jas T. Ward, then to LA to meet Lily Luchesi. These are authors I work closely with and talk to frequently so to me it was very important to meet them face to face. I love them all!
Our one year anniversary was fast approaching and I wanted to do something special for my Gem. She had never been to Victoria BC and I really wanted to show it to her so I booked us a vacation cottage rental with a water view. I needed this vacation to be special. We’ve come such a long way and overcome many obstacles that were thrown at us so we needed a way to decompress.
I booked the rental for a week and told Gem to pack her bag with warm comfy clothes, but to include something special for a night out as well. I wouldn’t tell her where we were going, just for how long we would be gone.
We got in the car and drove into Seattle to catch the ferry to Victoria. Gemma was in awe, she loved riding the ferries and her smile lit up my world. After securing our vehicle, we took the stairs to the café and ordered two cups of coffee and then made our way to the upper deck. Gemma stood at the bow of the deck, her sable curls whipping wildly in the wind but she didn’t care. She smiled like a kid on Christmas morning. I came up behind her, wrapping my arms round her tiny torso.
“Are you having fun my love?” I asked.
“Yes, of course. But I wish you would tell me where we’re going.”
“All in time my sweet, all in time.” I stayed with my arms wrapped around her, protecting her slender figure from the cold winds as we made our way through the sound, headed towards Victoria without a care in the world. Nothing mattered to me but her happiness, something I would do anything to secure.
It was too cold to stay on deck for this three-hour ride, so we went inside to cuddle up in one of the window booths.
“Liz, this is amazing. You know how much I love riding the ferry. I’ve never been to Victoria and I can’t wait.” The announcement had given away our destination, but not all the surprises I had planned for our week away.
I put my arm around her shoulder, kissing her cheek, “I promise you my love, you will not be disappointed.”
“Liz, you could never disappoint me. You hold the key to my heart.”
Her words still warmed me even though she proclaimed her love for me daily. This woman had become my world, and I hers.
She blew me a kiss, refilling my glass. “So Liz, what tickles your fancy?” “I’m still trying to get past your last declaration.” “I won’t lie, the first time it hurt like a son of a bitch, but what do you do? I don’t work, and with him I have access to unlimited funds so I deal with it. He wants kids and I don’t so it’s only a matter of time before he knocks one of his playmates up. Then I clean house and move on.” “I honestly don’t know what to say,” I told her. “Nothing to say. I was in love with him in college, but after all the shit he’s put me through, I barely tolerate him. We haven’t had sex in months so I’m going through batteries like a teenager’s Xbox controller.” She laughed. I wanted to laugh with her but found this disheartening. I always thought he was a total douche bag, but now I know he’s truly a worthless son of a bitch. Reaching over, I placed my hand on her leg. She covered it with hers, giving mine a light squeeze.
