Jet-Setting Escort (Book 1): Erotic Romance (A Curvy Girl Erotic Romance)

by Monique DuBois

**MATURE CONTENT WARNING: This sexy short story is recommended for 18+** THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SERIES AND CURRENTLY FREE! For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a boring, predictable life. I work at a low-paying job and have ho-hum missionary sex with my long-term boyfriend, who calls me “pear shaped” (and not in a good way). I’ve never been with more than one man or explored myself sexually. That’s for sexy, skinny girls. Girls with exciting lives. Girls I’m not.

When a series of events send my life into a tailspin, I find myself at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, locking eyes with a gorgeous, sexy stranger who sends my heart racing. Our first night together is one I’ll never forget. Or the next. Shockingly, he wants to pay me lots of money just to have me as his personal sex goddess. Best of all, he’s not the only one.

Soon, I’m discovering my sexuality for the first time, caught up in the exciting, glamorous world of high-class escorting. I’m also discovering myself: the independent, sexy, confident woman I was meant to be. Trouble is, I can’t give my body without giving my heart. I’m falling in love with more than one man, and they with me. I can’t choose just one . . . Or can I?

Dead Man’s Canyon (Jake Moran 3)

by Robert Broomall

In 1866, Beautiful archeologist Alison Shaw and her brother, Hammond, arrive in Tucson seeking a guide into Apacheria, where they plan to search for Hohokam artifacts. They try to hire the famous scout Jake Moran as a guide. Jake’s not the hero everybody thinks he is, though, and he wants no parts of a trip into Apache country; so Alison enlists the services of suave French rancher Edouard de Lacey, instead. De Lacey is the secret leader of a gang of outlaws, and he suspects that Alison is really looking for treasure. He intends to steal the treasure and return to France to live in luxury. For Alison, he has other plans. De Lacey is also Jake Moran’s deadliest enemy. He’s been trying to kill Jake for ten years, since Jake led the Vigilance Committee than ran de Lacey out of San Francisco. When Jake learns that Alison and her brother have gone with de Lacey, he has to try and save them. He rescues Alison and her brother, and with the outlaws and Cochise’s Apaches hot on their trail, the three of them set out to discover the secret of Dead Man’s Canyon.

Shakedown: The Church Street District

by Shawn Lytle

He was able to open up one of the hottest night clubs in the downtown’s Church Street District. Club Metropolis became the talk of the town and the success it garnered put Tony in the spotlight. Tony reveled in his new found success but his happiness was short lived when he was approached by Patrick, a notorious gangster in the area, who gave him an ultimatum. Patrick told Tony he could either pay him so his club could continue to conduct business in The Church Street District or he could refuse and come up missing. Tony refused Patrick’s offer without giving it a second thought. The next night, one of his club’s bouncers was brutally murdered in an abandoned warehouse. The murder was a clear attempt to intimidate and force an agreement but Tony did not bulge. Instead of backing down, he recruited his cousin Stephanie and prepared for war.

Lost Tales of Mercia (Sons of Mercia)

by Jayden Woods

In the years near 1000 A.D., the Vikings and their king, Sweyn Forkbeard, constantly attack Engla-lond. A weak king, Ethelred II, rules the Anglo-Saxons. He tries to pay off each Viking attack with a steep tax called the “Danegald,” but again and again the pagans return. A masked vigilante called the Golden Cross tries to aid the people of Engla-lond and rally them to warfare, but this rebel is constantly way-laid by the king’s most trusted advisor, Eadric Streona. Eadric Streona, Ealdorman of Mercia, is a charming master of the king’s court who always manages to get what he wants; but what he wants remains a mystery to all.

Ten short stories explore this setting through the eyes of ten different characters, from a blushing maid and bold mother to a daring soldier, an unready king, and many others. Some characters are fictional, but most are real figures of history. Altogether, the Lost Tales introduce the people who will fight, love, and betray each other until the rightful king claims the throne of Engla-lond in the complementary novel, “Eadric the Grasper.”

While interconnected by the novel and each other, each story stands independently as a snapshot into this ancient world. This is a collection of all ten tales, previously released as individual ebooks.

Space Games

by Dean Lombardo

A sleekly modern rendition of pulp sci-fi, Space Games is fast-paced, straightforward read that leaves you wanting to know what happens next.
Mary Fan, ‘Artificial Absolutes’, Red Adept Publishing

Like any good reality show, Space Games leaves us wondering what the contestants would do next and how they could possibly top the last bone-breaking outburst of brutality. The ending goes to a pretty dark placeâ??the worst nightmare for any TV producer, except Zimmer.
Brian Bandell, New York Journal of Books

The cameras are on and the gloves are off in this battle of the sexes in space.

Say hello to Robin and Joeâ??contestants in 2034’s “Space Games,” a high-stakes reality TV show from Hollywood producer Sheldon J. Zimmer that is set aboard next-generation space station, ISS 2. The winner takes home a multimillion-dollar jackpot and a chance at stardom, while the loser faces the ultimate in public humiliation. Only former NASA astronaut Vince, acting as the station’s commander and the games’ sole referee, can separate sexy spitfire and martial artist, Robin Miller, from her brutal opponent, “Big Joe” O’Donnell, as the pair compete inside the cramped zero-g environs. Watched by millions of people back on Earth, the reality show rapidly degenerates into a deadly spectacle.

Space Games is a compelling story and a biting satire about reality television: those who make and participate in it – and those who watch it.

Staring into the Abyss

by Timmy Chatbot

What do you get when over a hundred people and an insane computer program write a book? The worst book ever written! And you thought Atlanta Nights was bad!

“Staring into the Abyss” is a completely nonsensical book, created as a group effort in the ChatNano IRC Chatrooms, with the assistance of a chatbot. Profits will be evenly distributed between donations to the OLL (Office of Letters and Light), and the hosting costs for the ChatNano service itself. Anyone is welcome to purchase it, and indeed, we hope you do. But it will mean the most to people who were involved in its creation.

Much like Atlanta Nights, this book is intentionally bad. Please keep that in mind before purchasing or reviewing.
