All four of my High Rise novellas are now available bundled together. You can read all about Alex, Maddie, Nat and Isabella’s romantic adventures in either an 85.000 word e-book or a hefty paperback of 294 pages.
This does mark the end of the High Rise series, but not to worry, I’m brooding on a new series already, and I’ll be releasing a lot of short stories in the coming two months.
Here’s a reminder of the blurb:
Four women. One building. A million complications.
High Rise is a series of lesbian erotic romance novellas focusing on four women who live in The Ivy, the sexiest building in Hong Kong.
There’s Alex, a local gym instructor with a broken heart. Her room mate Nat, a celebrated American writer who moved to Hong Kong for love. Their upstairs neighbour Maddie, a workaholic investment banker. And the penthouse inhabitant, Isabella, a psychiatrist who’s lived in the city for fifteen years.
Romances develop and untangle as these four women get to know each other better.
Warning: these novellas include countless hot and graphic f/f sex scenes and may make you blush (amongst other things).
Price: $6.99 (e-book) / $12.99 (paperback)
(Other retailers like Barnes & Noble and iTunes should follow soon.)
Always a proud moment. 😉
To highlight that you can also get No Ordinary Love and Close Enough bundled together for a smarter price in the second High Rise omnibus, this very first Sexy Snippet is from High Rise Novella Three (No Ordinary Love).
“Please tell me it’s Sunday.” Maddie opened her eyes and arched her back while stretching out her limbs.
Alex nodded while letting her drifting hand disappear under the covers. She traced two fingers over Maddie’s lower abdomen.
“Does this morning assault on my privates mean we’re back together?” Maddie caught Alex’s fingers in her palm and held her gaze.
“If you’ll still have me now that you know I’m damaged goods.” Alex held her breath.
“As if that was ever up to me.” Maddie pushed Alex’s hand down into her pubic hair. “And anyway, I’ll still want you when your spectacular abs have turned to flab and your hair has gone grey.”
Maddie was right. The choice had been up to Alex and she had chosen.
“How dare you suggest I’ll someday live without a six pack. I might as well be dead.” Alex dipped one finger between Maddie’s legs and wondered if the woman was ever not wet and ready to go when she was in her company.
“Music to my ears, babe.” Maddie’s voice shifted to ragged whispers as Alex started circling a finger around her clit. She threw her head back into the pillows and let go of Alex’s hand. “Let me feel them.”
Maddie brought her hand to Alex’s belly and scratched her skin lightly before digging her nails in. In reaction, Alex pushed a finger inside Maddie.
“Mmm,” Maddie moaned and snuck her hand up to Alex’s chest until it cupped her breast.
Alex moved her finger and being inside Maddie moistened her thighs. Heat pulsed between her legs. It wasn’t enough anymore to just feel Maddie’s hand on her breast. She needed more. As if she had to make up for fleeing.
Slowly, she let her finger slip out of Maddie. She kissed Maddie below the belly button before pushing herself up, twisting on her knees until her back faced Maddie, and spread her legs to straddle her.
Alex had barely found her balance when she felt Maddie’s nails dig into the skin of her behind.
“Sunday brunch,” Maddie said, “my favourite meal of the week.”
I fully realise I’ve been missing in blog action. These are the last days of my month-long visit to the motherland and in between freezing my bits off, emptying my mother-in-law’s house and spending as much quality time as possible with my 9-month-old nephew, I duly confess, my time for blogging has suffered. I should be back in full force (minus a massive case of jet lag) next week (and I have a few goodies in store!) Meanwhile, let’s get back to today’s business: humping!
In today’s hook we visit Nat and Isabella, the odd couple from Undislcosed Desires and Close Enough. This scene is from Undisclosed Desires and is set just after they have, at last, disclosed their desire for each other. 😉
“I think it’s only fair I shower first before inviting you into my boudoir.” Isabella needed to wash the day—and Sophie—off her.
“I hope that’s an invitation.” Nat responded by pulling her t-shirt over her head.
A tingle crept up Isabella’s spine. “I can hardly leave you alone with my Scotch collection.” Nat stood in front of her, with only a bra covering her breasts and her hands on her hips. Isabella reached for her, hooked three fingers in the waistband of her jeans and pulled her close. She dragged her nails over Nat’s naked skin while finding her lips. If they didn’t make it to the shower soon she’d be a lost cause. “Come on.”
They left a trail of discarded clothes on their way to the bathroom. Isabella hesitated to take her underwear off. Gym sessions and subsequent locker room encounters aside, she hadn’t taken it all off for someone in a long time.
Lust brimmed in Nat’s eyes as she took the final step towards Isabella. She curled a hand around Isabella’s neck and drew her in for another kiss, while her other hand crept up her back and, with one quick snap of the fingers, undid her bra. Years of practice, Isabella guessed, but abandoned the thought as soon as the back of Nat’s hand flitted along the side of her left breast.
Isabella stepped out of her panties and opened the glass door of the walk-in shower. She turned the tab to steamy hot, eager for some clouds of fog to rise between them now that the differences between a late forty-year-old and an early thirty-year-old body became clear.
The skin that stretched tautly over Nat’s abs glistened as the first drops of water rained down on her and Isabella had to question her motives again. Was this more than a subconscious desire to flirt with youth now she was approaching fifty? Nat didn’t give her time to process. She pressed her against the tiled shower wall, taking control, no doubt because that’s what she always did. Isabella would let her for now, but she had other plans for later.
“I believe someone needs a thorough scrub.” Nat’s words were hot in her ear, her fingers gripping her waist. She reached for the soap while pushing her pelvis into Isabella’s, the crash of skin on skin swirling through Isabella’s bones the way steam was slowly swirling toward the ceiling—moist and lingering.
While rubbing the soap to white foam between her hands, Nat pinned her eyes on Isabella, her crooked grin baring more teeth than usual. Her dark hair clung to her forehead in short wet strands, drops of water streaming down her face. A sight so sexy Isabella was glad she had the support of the wall against her back.
Nat brought her hands to Isabella’s shoulders and started applying the bubbly soap in downward circles. Isabella’s skin turned to gooseflesh under Nat’s prolonged caresses. Her nipples puckered up as Nat’s hands zoned in. The circles reached her breasts and Isabella became acutely aware of not just the wetness surrounding her, but, even more so, the juices drizzling from between her legs.
When Nat’s fingers encircled her nipples, both of them at the same time being stroked to rock hard peaks, a deep throaty moan escaped her. Nat’s breath came quicker as well, short puffs of air floating between them. Their lips, slippery and wet, found each other again and just as Nat bit down on Isabella’s bottom lip she pinched both her nipples between soapy fingers.

“I think it’s time for another one of our infamous deals.” Isabella painted the beginning of a smile on her face. “Why don’t you write it down for me? And I’ll let you off the hook for now.”
“I may need a bit more incentive than that.” Nat rose from her chair. She extended her hand, which was shaking a bit too much for her comfort, and waited for Isabella to take it. She hoisted Isabella up and coaxed her towards the door. Nat was quick to slam Isabella against it before Isabella turned the tables on her again. She made sure the door was locked before hitching up Isabella’s skirt.
Her hand dived straight into Isabella’s panties. Nat was not surprised to find her soaking wet. She slid one finger into Isabella while gazing into her eyes.
“Come for me and it’s a deal.”
“Mmm,” Isabella moaned. Her eyes glinted with lust and she pressed herself onto Nat’s finger.
Nat added another finger and slowly, almost teasingly, fucked Isabella against her office door. With her other hand, she undid the buttons to Isabella’s blouse and lifted her breasts out of her bra. The exposure to the conditioned air creased her nipples into stiff buds immediately. As she withdrew her fingers from Isabella’s pussy to refocus their action on her clit, she pinched one nipple hard between her thumb and index finger, twisting it for more effect.
Isabella came shivering against her, cursing like a sailor.
“Fuck,” she said, after Nat had removed her hand from her panties and left Isabella to get properly dressed again. “This is my office, god damn it. This is no place for shenanigans like this.”
“A deal’s a deal, Doc.” Nat unlocked the door. “I’d better get home and start writing.”

Here’s yet another sneak peek from Close Enough (High Rise Novella Four). (It should be out in 2 weeks!)
“Come on.” Isabella tore her lips away from Nat’s and dragged her into the direction of the bedroom. They stood in front of the bed and Nat started to unbutton Isabella’s blouse. Nat was surely a very skilled lover, but she never showed much restraint. The languid speed at which she undressed Isabella, and how it stood in stark contrast to how she usually did it—rushed and insistent—made Isabella’s skin tingle.
Nat guided the blouse over Isabella’s shoulders and followed up with a soft peck just above her sternum. Her hands meandered to Isabella’s back, where they unclasped her bra. The eager look Nat shot Isabella’s bare breasts made her breath hitch in her throat. Nat brushed the meaty part of her thumbs over Isabella’s nipples and they stood to attention immediately, crinkling up under her able touch.
While her hands cupped Isabella’s breasts, thumbs still fondling, Nat nuzzled the delicate skin of Isabella’s neck. The soft nibbles of her lips transformed Isabella’s skin into a field of goosebumps. Nat’s hands trailed down, to the button of Isabella’s jeans, while her lips kept working on her neck, occasionally travelling up to her ear. With a quick flip, the button came undone and Nat lowered the zipper. Slowly, she let a finger slide under the waistband of Isabella’s panties. Not far, but enough to cause Isabella’s clit to throb with desire.
