Stunning to realize that the Naughty Literati have been in business for two years now. Our backlist has become impressive. Better, the inspiration that we draw from each other and this shared project is uplifting.
Presenting Autumn 2016 and Naughty Haunts: Eleven Spooky Love Stories
I have not one but two dynamite stories in this anthology.
Anyone love witches and vampires, along with men in uniform? Hope so!
Here's what I have for ya:
The Sacramento Police Department is no place for airy-fairy wimps, and Ben McCullough is the toughest of the tough. He tells himself he's bedding the luscious Elena Lautari only because she's a babe, not because she's a card-carrying member of the Northern California Church of Wicca. Ben thinks she's a
feather away from an arrest for fraud, since she makes a living telling fortunes and making charms for the lovelorn. He can't see her as a lifelong mate even though she's more than a match for him in the sack, and losing her is unthinkable.
|The doorway that inspired Gypsy Witch|
you'll understand when you read the story
But Elena is the real deal, a modern witch of much power and even more restraint. When her daughter, Gina, steals her mother's spell book and uses it to shatter the fabric of existence and release an ancient evil, Elena must put reality back in place—even if she loses Ben in the process. Will Ben and Elena's fragile love be lost with the revelation of her magic?
Maybe, but there are others ready to heal her battered heart. When Ben's partner attempts to claim Elena, will Ben move aside or move in?
This story is previously published, and other readers loved it!

A century-old vampire, Rama is used to shadows and loneliness.
She uses the name Hestia White and lives in a coastal town working as a private investigator. If some bad guys disappear on her shift, no one cares…until John van Helsing shows up. Bearing the name of the vamps’ greatest foe, he interferes in her case and in her life.
Friend, lover or enemy?
…a highly charged, sexually stimulating and all around pleasurable trip…
