Historical Romance Writer: LUSH SENSUAL READS

THE VELVET BASEMENT SERIES 

The Velvet Basement is a lush, sensual set of stories set in Victorian England. They skirt the edge of Gothic eroticism and dark romanticism giving them a rich, moody feel. They are strongly influenced by fairy tales but like they used to be told; the ones that held real darkness to overcome and where the rewards for undertaking the journey, for surviving the past or the ordeal given to you were often not what you expect.

Series I  holds elements of Sleeping Beauty (The Veiled Heart), Cinderella (The Bound Heart), & Beauty and The Beast (The Painted Heart). They are not retellings but hold the deeper pattern that sits in the stories we grew up with.

Series II takes a darker turn from series I. We step into the world of  Little Red Ridding Hood (The Fur Heart) a story full of crops, masks and teeth. Book 2. a Blue beard story with bird cages. Book 3. The Little Mermaid, and the price we are willing to pay to be loved in The Silent Heart.
