Odessa's Stories



Odessa is a witch with a fondness for snakes and a heart splintered from loving two men, neither of whom she can really claim as her own.

First there was Roger Rohde, a cocky blond bombshell of a man too handsome for his own good. The former pro wrestling champion swept a young naïve Odessa off her feet, taking her on the road with him as he defended his title through out the world.

Then along came Graham Edwards, a superstar wrestler and genius promoter, who instantly became smitten with the champion's gorgeous red haired mistress. The attraction was mutual. Their love affair ignited an intense sexual chemistry that neither of them were able to resist.

This box set contains four previously released stories: The Lady Is A Tramp, Always, Fly Away, and Under My Skin.

The Lady Is A Tramp - Odessa takes us back to 1963 when it was Roger, and not Graham, that had her heart. The wrestling champion takes his witchy mistress to an underground burlesque club in New York. The young redhead is overwhelmed by The Big Apple and a mysterious woman from her lover's past. In the midst of her confusion she runs to Graham and learns of both his and Roger's connection to the club's voluptuous owner and performer, Katie Hirsch.

Always - Odessa’s beloved takes her out on a special Mother’s Day date to meet his mom. Graham’s recently widowed mother is in for quite a surprise when she finds out her favorite son has fathered a child with an empathic medium. His witchy red haired mistress stuns them all when she channels his deceased father to give them all a message from the other side.  

Fly Away - Odessa is overwhelmed by an intense power she’s not able to control. She’s an empath able to feel the emotions and physical ailments of those she loves. With their toddler daughter teething and a previous head injury making Graham’s migraines almost impossible to withstand, Odessa copes the only way she knows how… by ringing up Roger. It doesn’t take much convincing for Roger to lure her into flying away with him to Acapulco. Will she have fun in the sun with her first love, or realize there’s no escaping from the twisted triangles entwining all of their hearts?

Under My Skin - Odessa, takes us back to her days amidst the living to share an erotic encounter with her first love and then the man who later laid claim to her heart. Roger once again shows up when Odessa is the most vulnerable. He seduces her with some light bondage and promises of them finally being together. Graham, as usual, picks up the pieces when he finds Odessa still bound to her bed. She begs for forgiveness by offering up one of his favorite sexual treats.

Excerpt:

“The pleasure is all mine, Anastasia.” Howl turned, his golden eyes meeting hers.

God, his voice was like the finest whiskey. Rich, dark and damning as it rolled over her name. The air changed at his touch. He didn’t shake her hand, instead held it warm in his just a second longer than was polite. She didn’t miss the frown on Jace’s face. Even old lovers were territorial.

“Ah, yes. Likewise. Well, I hate to run, but I have to get going. Got a full day of appointments scheduled.” Flustered, she tugged her hand out of Howl’s. “Hey, Cade, tell Taylor to call me when she gets in. We need to catch up. Spa day.”

“Yep. Thanks.”

“Any time.” She retreated to the safety of her Jeep, but couldn’t resist a second look toward the door before driving away. He was watching her through the glass. She still felt his touch and ached for more. Howl Raven was a flash fire. And she was a moth to that flame, begging him to consume her.

A Different Kind of Cosplay


Blurb:

Zachary has a dilemma. His girlfriend, Reese, has a special birthday coming up soon and he has absolutely no clue what to get for her. It doesn’t help that Zach does not share or really understand Reese’s biggest hobby—comic books, superheroes and everything that goes with them. Zach raids Reese’s DVD collection for inspiration, and what he finds there gives him an idea…possibly the best one he’s ever had.

Sure, Reese has fantasized about her favorite superheroes. All those muscles and rakish smiles are to die for. She didn’t think Zach would ever really understand, though. But he proves her wrong in the best way possible.

Excerpt:

Zachary sighed at the calendar entry in his phone, which was reminding him for the third time about Reese’s upcoming birthday. And it wasn’t just any birthday—she was going to be thirty.

There were perks to dating a doctor—the uniform was pretty hot, for example—but when that doctor had no particular fondness for jewelry, flowers or chocolates, buying her presents was nigh-on impossible. And because of her work schedule, a surprise weekend away was out of the question. He’d long since learned to always keep the receipts.

Most people get their partners something to do with their hobbies or interests. However, Reese was even awkward in that regard. Her main hobby was so complex that Zach didn’t have the first idea what to get her to do with it—Reese was an uber-geek. Films, graphic novels, collectibles, all that jazz.

Obviously he could just ask what she wanted, then go out and get it, but then it wouldn’t be a surprise. And it was too easy—he wanted her to know he’d really made the effort.

Snoozing the calendar reminder once more, Zach threw the phone onto the sofa, then walked over and started rooting through their combined film collection for something to watch after dinner, which was almost ready. Reese was on-shift at the hospital until silly o’clock, so he had the house to himself and could watch whatever he liked. An action movie it was, then.

Running his fingers along the spines of the DVDs and Blu-rays, he suddenly paused. The Avengers leaped out at him, for some reason. He’d seen snippets of it before, as Reese watched it pretty frequently. The parts he’d seen hadn’t looked too bad, actually. It was essentially an action film, he decided, but with superheroes in it.

He pulled the case off the shelf, an idea beginning to form. Maybe if he watched it beginning to end, he’d seen what drew Reese into that world so much, why she was so fascinated by the films, the graphic novels and so on. Even if he didn’t get it, though, maybe it would still give him some inspiration for a gift. He had nothing better to do that evening, in any case, so it was certainly worth a try.

After putting the disc in the player, he headed into the kitchen to see how his dinner was coming along. A meal in front of the television was the order of the day, it seemed.

A few minutes later, he settled onto the sofa with his lasagna and garlic bread, a bottle of beer on the table next to him. Time for some Avengers action.

Within half an hour, he’d ascertained that the film wasn’t just for geeks. In fact it was easy to see why it had such a wide appeal—the cast was supremely attractive, whatever gender you were into, the plot was interesting and the dialogue seriously witty. He’d already developed quite the crush on the Black Widow, and Nick Fury’s right-hand woman had a lovely pert backside.

Trying to put himself in Reese’s shoes, Zach looked at the male characters. Okay, when it came to this film, straight women clearly had more eye-candy than they knew what to do with. He vaguely remembered a bunch of crazy stuff going around on the Internet about Loki—even the villain of the piece had sex appeal, for heaven’s sake! So much so that it had spilled over into even Zach’s limited social media presence. He barely used Facebook, and he’d never gotten the hang of Twitter. And yet he knew about the rabid fangirls. That was another score for The Avengers, then—truly mass-market appeal. If only there were mass-market gift-buying options.

Sighing, he tried to empty his mind and concentrate on the film. The more he tried to force an idea to present itself, the less likely it would be to happen. He’d just enjoy the entertainment and keep his fingers crossed that his subconscious provided something useful.

Once he’d made the decision, it wasn’t difficult to get sucked back into the narrative. It was engaging, easy-going and fun. Zach surprised himself by thoroughly enjoying the entire thing. Reese would be pleased when the next film came out at the cinema and he offered to go along with her.

He’d keep his new found admiration quiet for now, though. He didn’t want to arouse her suspicions, although she was bound to know he was planning something for her milestone birthday.

The question remained—what the hell could he do or buy to blow her away?

2014 - Year In Review


This is the last day to get Minerva's Muse for only .99 cents.


Another year has come and gone. It's been an eventful year in that, not counting the purchase of my new Macbook as a writing expense, I actually made a profit this year. Yes, it takes money for advertising, editing, cover photos, an Office 360 subscription, and other tools of the craft.

The ebook market has become completely over saturated and it takes a lot to get noticed as a writer. I strive to produce my best work, staying consistent to my voice as a writer and also as a practicing witch. It is my goal to always represent my craft (writing and witch) with complete honesty and integrity. I'm not researching the life of a witch, it is something that I live every day and it is very much a spiritual path to me.

I'd like to thank my spirit guide, Odessa, for continuing to share her story with me. Without her guidance and input I am nothing as a writer. I tried not to have her stories heavily edited because I wanted to protect her natural voice in the way she whispered those words into my ear.

I also have to thank everyone who bought one of my books this year and especially those that took the time to leave an honest review. I genuinely appreciate everyone who spends any amount of money to read one of my stories.

In 2014 we continued Odessa's story with the following titles:

February 26th - Fly Away (A full length novel)
March 15th - Always (A not so smutty short story)
July 22nd - Illicit (An erotic novella)
September 16th - Witchcraft (A sexually charged novella)

Illicit was my best selling story this year and introduced the point of view of a new character in Odessa's love triangle, her Beloved's wife, Lucy. I really enjoyed writing from her point of view and hope to add more stories to the series.

I also had a short story, Helpdesk Hijinks, included in Evernight Publishing's Executive Assistant Office Romance Anthology.

June 19th - Executive Assistant Evernight Office Romance Anthology.

I ended the year by revising and extensively editing two novellas. Ghost of a Chance was previously released as Infinity and Minerva's Muse is the continuation of Snow Angel, a short story included in Evernight Publishing's Stockings & Suspenders Holiday Anthology.

December 1st - Ghost of a Chance
December 8th - Minerva's Muse

In 2015 I hope to have more of Odessa's stories and I am also working on a non-fiction biography that I hope to release by 2016.

Happy Holidays!

Excerpt:

“Enough of me,” he said coyly. He reached out to grab a stray lock of my strawberry blonde hair. I swatted his hand away.

“Do not touch me,” I hissed.

He rolled his eyes and turned his baseball cap backwards on his head. “Oh, come on. I’m a guy and you’re a girl and—”

“This isn’t going to turn into some tutor/student sex fantasy,” I shot back angrily.

“Admit it. You think I’m hot.”

If I were being frank, I would admit that the fourteen-year-old freshman was good looking in a young Brad Pitt sort of way. Regardless, he was a freshman. There was no way I was even entertaining that idea.

I shook my head. “Nope. Can’t say that I do.”

“Oh, come on, Riley. Stop denying what is fated. We are going to fall in love, get married, and have beautiful children.”

“Do you want me to tell your mother that you’re sexually harassing your eighteen year old senior tutor? Why don’t you take all that energy you’re putting into being a perverted freak and focus on your studies?”

Instead of being angry, Blake’s eyes widened and he burst into a loud laugh. “You are seriously something, Riley Dillon. Seriously something.”

“Just pay attention to the lesson,” I snapped.

“Age ain’t nothing but a number, Sweetheart. One day you’ll find that out.” He grinned his cocky smile and I couldn’t help but wonder if this tutoring gig was even worth it. As his laugh echoed in the empty classroom, all I could do was shut my tired eyes and shake my head in exasperation.
