Release day: Dark Desire

8 September 2022

Today is the official release of Dark Desire by Alice Renaud, Alan Souter, Gibby Campbell, Nancy Golinski, SK White, Zia Westfield, Anne Krist, Deborah Kelsey, F Burn, Estelle Pettersen and Virginia Wallace (ebook and paperback, Black Velvet Seductions). Here’s the blurb:

Cover image of Dark DesireDark Desire showcases twelve stories where the authors delve into the dark crevasses of their imaginations, probing into dark themes, creating strange new worlds and inventing larger than life  characters.

These stories explore relationships, unafraid of taking the genre of romance to a darker deeper level.

Estelle dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Dark Desire is a collaboration of dark romances, from thrilling to supernatural, from authors all over the world, including Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with many of the authors who collaborated on the anthology through our publisher, and I’m impressed by the stories they’ve crafted. The setting for my short story in the anthology, The Wolf of Varg Island, was inspired by an island off the coast of a Nordic country where my husband and I travel each summer. The weather can be cold, dark and unforgiving; yet the place offers a sanctuary for romance and love.

You can find out more about this book at the publisher’s website or buy it from here.
