Coming Soon: FOREST SECLUSION

Published March 26, 2017 by Jennifer Loring

These five fairy tales feature LGBTQ characters, many of whom begin life in castles, yet make their way into the wild forests for love, truth, and a sense of themselves. This free anthology takes the classics and makes them ours.

White Deer by Jess Martin – Curses, shape-shifting, and shrimp fairies: welcome to Jenn’s version of Madame d’Aulnoy’s fairy tale where she gender-bends the cursed creation, takes liberty with the hero’s tale, and finds a princess who isn’t in a rush to get rescued.

Snow White by Christina Rosso – When Snow White’s father brings home Nadene, her new step-mother, the princess has doubts about the girl’s ability to be a queen and mother, but what Snow White never expects is to fall in love with her.

The Tree of Wisdom by Dale Cameron Lowry – A curse cast on Prince Florian makes love a dangerous enterprise. But when he meets animal whisperer Olvir, he falls willingly.

If Only You Were Someone Else by Jennifer Loring – A changeling is willing to risk everything to discover who and what s/he really is–especially when s/he falls for a human male.

Heaven Scent by Chantal Boudreau – A highly sensual retelling of Rapunzel from an insider’s perspective.

Coming Soon from Supposed Crimes.

Also Coming Soon: Craving Bad

Published March 22, 2017 by Jennifer Loring

To take the bad with the good has never been this tempting…

We all need it. We all crave it. The unexpected. The freedom of letting all your inhibitions go. It’s the thrill of being led to the edge, testing the limits, wondering if and when you’ll be pushed over. It’s the rush of the unknown. The bittersweet of tasting the forbidden when you know it’s undeniably bad for you. It consumes you, possesses you, and seduces you with its decadence, the desire for wickedly bad things.

Thirteen stories of sinfully seductive bad boys and scandalously wild bad girls—all ready to ignite your deepest desires by letting you experience the daring side of romance.

A blackmailing hacker. An infamous cage fighter. The Sergeant at Arms of a criminal MC. They’re breaking bad with shameless temptation…and they are downright irresistible.

Do you want to be taken to the edge? Do you ache for the thrill of experiencing how good bad can be?

Craving bad? Now’s your chance to indulge.

Coming May 23 from Limitless Publishing. Includes my new novelette “Paper Faces,” which takes place during the timeline of the first Firebird book.
