Book Extract: Smut by the Sea Volume 3

Karen grimaced as she drove the car onto the Dungeness estate. She knew for a fact she was on said estate because she’d just passed a sign proudly proclaiming her whereabouts.

Book Extract: Smut by the Sea Volume 2

Brigit loved the seaside. She always had, probably because visiting it was a rarity.

Book Extract: Smut for Chocoholics

Hilary left the pub feeling downcast. It was the second time she’d been in that week—dressed to the nines—and still he’d barely noticed her.

Book Extract: Cougar

Pawn Shop by Lily Harlem  I glanced up from my crossword puzzle as the bell above the shop door tinkled.
