About the authors

M. Leibowitz is a spouse, parent, feminist, and book-lover falling somewhere on the Geek-Nerd Spectrum. She keeps warm through the long, cold western New York winters by writing romantic plot twists and happy-for-now endings. In between noveling and editing, she blogs coffee-fueled, quirky commentary on faith, culture, writing, and her family at amleibowitz.com.

Adrian J. Smith, aka AJ, loves to write women, and specifically women who are strong, independent and fall in love with other women. She claims bisexuality but is probably closer to omnisexual. She’s a go with the flow type of person. She loves writing urban fantasy and creatures and powers of all different kinds. She also loves writing women in uniform, because let’s face it, a woman in uniform has an irresistible draw. Most of her stories have a romantic element, but if you want action, drama, plot with a hint of romance, she’s the author for you. Find her at adrianjsmith.wordpress.com.

Amber Kinsey is a part-time federal employee, full-time geek, and occasional writer. She lives in a suburb of Nashville, TN with her three cats: one is the light of her life; the other two are just little stinkers.

Eva Lefoy writes and reads all kinds of romance, and is a certified Trekkie. She’s also terribly addicted to chocolate, tea, and hiking. One of these days, she’ll figure out the meaning of life, quit her job, and go travel the galaxy. Until then, she’s writing down all her dirty thoughts for the sake of future explorers. You can find her blog at writery.wordpress.com.

Geonn Cannon is the author of On the Air, Gemini, World on Fire, The Following Sea, Tilting at Windmills, Only Flame and Air, Confused by Shadows, Chasing Dragons, What Matter Wounds?, Silence Out Loud, the Riley Parra series, Railroad Spine, Gunfire Echoes, the Underdogs series, Girls Don’t Hit, and The Rise and Fall of Radiation Canary. He also wrote an official tie-in novel for Stargate SG-1 titled “Two Roads” and contributed a Stargate Atlantis story to the “Far Horizons” anthology. An archive of free stories can be found at geonncannon.com. When he’s not writing, he’s asleep.

M. Perrin is an English major who writes fiction to break up the monotony of analyzing novels. She lives in Leelanau County, also known as Michigan’s pinky finger, with her dog and the occasional stray cat, and in her opinion there is nothing wrong with spending a night binging on Netflix and pizza. This is her first published piece.

Michael DuPuy, while not investigating epistemological dead ends, cultivates a greater understanding of the folly of man most often by recreating as many of such folly’s as possible through no intent of his own. Michael turned to writing as a method of perhaps extending his sanity and to justify his coffee consumption. If anything this tactic has backfired.

Rachael Orman: Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work. 

I have written in F/F, F/F/M, F/F/F and then of course F/M genres…. So, beware, I do not always have the most ‘traditional’ scenes. And one day I will venture into M/M, just have to find the time. 

I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I’ll write just about anything once to learn from it. I’ve even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you’ll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next. 

About the Publisher:

Supposed Crimes, LLC publishes fiction and poetry primarily featuring lesbian characters and themes. The focus is on genre fiction–Westerns, Science Fiction, Horror, Action–rather than just romance. That’s how we set ourselves apart from our competitors. Our characters happen to love women and kick ass.

“Supposed crimes” refers to the idea that homosexuality is outlawed, and that our authors are being subversive by writing. As times change this becomes more tongue-in-cheek, but can still apply broadly to our culture. Christians writing lesbians and men writing lesbians are also subversive ideas in this industry, and we promote people bending the rules.

Review: This was a pretty good book with a wide variety of stories. Some were very unique and intriguing. The stories are centered on Valentines and dates that could have or do go very wrong. There are several genres, and different heat ratings so that there is a little something for everyone that likes FF and MM short reads. I have also included a separate rating and review for each book below.

Viral Valentine by L. M. Perrin
FF Low heat ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts

Sometimes we set out to do things thinking it is cute or funny but do not think about the person involved. I am not a big fan of the funniest video or prank stuff and this story is a good example of why. Ellie thinks she is going to dinner on Valentines even though it’s with a stranger to find herself pranked. Paige one of the pranksters took a liking to Ellie and wanted the prank ended but Todd wouldn’t let up. Will Ellie forgive Paige?

I liked this story and would have liked more. It ended a bit so suddenly.

Date Blind by Geonn Cannon
FF/Low ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts
Martha is waiting on a blind date when she finds out that her date Connie was her high school bully. This story took me back to my high school days of being bullied.

I liked how the characters developed through this story. I wanted more.

The Politician and the Pilot by Amber Kinsey
FF/ Explicit ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts
Samantha is a politician sent on a punishment assignment by her boss and ex-lover. She finds herself enthralled with the young pilot Katie and after too much tequila in her bed.

This story is smoking hot! Not lot of plot but the sex scenes were actually good.

Bar Tryst by Rachael Orman
FF/ Explicit ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts
Vanessa is at a bar with her friends on Valentines she goes to the bathroom and Lisa starts talking to her. Later they end up back in the bathroom in hot sex.

This story had no plot and it just didn’t do it for me sex wise like the other. It wasn’t bad it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

Quarter Life: Energy Feed by Adrian J. Smith
Ménage FMM/FFM/ Explicit ♥♥♥♥ 4  Hearts
Faye has been told the statue of the trapped troll actually will come to life and he will be able to give her answers. She hopes he can find her a witch.

This is a dark fantasy or paranormal story that was very intriguing I would love to read more of this. There is hot sex in a MMF and also a FFM with a voyeur.

Property of Cupid by Eva Lefoy
MM/ Explicit ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts
This was one of my favorite stories in the book. I loved the twist on cupid. I can’t give much away so I’ll just say read this it was awesome! I want more!

Private Dance by A. M. Leibowitz
MM/ Moderate ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts
Another of my favorites in this book. Alex finds himself babysitting for a friend on Valentines with his relationship in jeopardy. Before Phinn left on his business trip, he said some pretty cruel stuff and though they have talked, it out he still knows there is work to be done. He finds himself on a scavenger hunt with his little charges in tow and a very happy surprise at the end of the hunt.

I loved this it was awesome. I did have some questions and wanted more information such as why was Phinn going away so much and what their jobs etc. were but the story line was great, and the ending even greater! This one made the entire book worth reading!

The Last Mitzvah by Michael DuPuy
?/ No heat ♥♥ 2 Hearts
I never figured this story out so I won’t say much. I couldn’t figure out who the character was at all or why he was at the Bar Mitzvah. I am assuming he was a transsexual from what I gathered but I am not sure. I was confused throughout the entire thing

I’ll say the ending shocked the bejesus out of me!
