In Her Hands, a short novel  |  Read the first chapter here!

Sarabeth Delany’s fantasies come to life when she meets male model Michael Steele—the inspiration for her erotic sculptures. They bond over a discussion of art and passion…which leads to steamy nights with blindfolds and erotic photo sessions.

Michael appreciates the advantages modeling has given him, but he’d really rather be behind the camera. He longs for a woman who’ll love him for who he is, not his fame. When he finds out about Sarabeth’s sculptures, will it mean the end of their affair…and her career?

In Her Hands was a top-10 finalist in the Brava Novella Contest.

“Sarabeth and Michael moved me with their artistic and romantic dilemmas—and the sex is both smoking hot and beautifully entwined with the other aspects of the story.” (Teresa Noelle Roberts, author of the Duals and Donovans series)

raven cover web“Raven’s Flight”

When I met my sexy new neighbor, all I wanted to do was trace every spiral and intricate knot and line of the tattoo on his back…with my tongue. And that was just for starters. “Raven’s Flight” is smoking hot erotic short story about tattoos, Celtic symbolism, and lust turning into love. A must-read! Includes BONUS story “End of Season.” Warning: Contains explicit sex.

“Forget the girl next door when you can have the sexy Celtic next door. Ciaran is the type of neighbor we all dream of; sexy, intelligent, and likes to walk around shirtless. I also enjoyed the link the tattoos played in Ciaran and the heroine’s journey through life. I appreciate symbolism because I have always felt it adds a touch of depth to a story. The author effectively illustrated that with the use of the tattoos.” –Whipped Cream Reviews

“Queens Up” originally appeared in LAMBDA Literary Award Winner Lesbian Cowboys: Erotic Adventures (Cleis Press, 2009) and republished in Best Lesbian Romance 2010 (Cleis Press, 2010).

“In the silent-support and enduring understanding romance department, it’s hard to beat Andrea Dale’s historical ‘Queens Up.’ The setting of the American West is cleanly crafted and the time period of Westward Expansion accurate. The women, Josephine and Margaret, are depicted with the determination and intelligence to work within the ‘big picture’ of society’s expectations. There’s no blow-up women’s lib single moment, so frequent in stories set in historical times, just a strong current of thinking fast on their feet that brings these women alive.”

—Lara Zielinsky, LZFiction

“Singling out individual stories in this collection is hard because each of them is effective in its own way. However, one especially memorable story for me is the one lesbian story in this collection: ‘Devouring Heart’ by Andrea Dale. In this heartbreaking tale, the good intentions of both vampire and mortal can’t make up for the communication gap between them. This relationship makes a valid-enough metaphor for real-life relationships in an incestuous lesbian community, and the story seems true to its literary roots.”  Jean Roberta, EroticaRevealed.com

“‘Devouring Heart’ is the only lesbian tale in the book and Andrea Dale presents a heartbreaking tale of love and how far a lover will go to keep a partner. There is a good use of metaphor between the title and the relationship and this is one of the few tales that ends sadly, yet I have a tender place for this as one of my favorites for evoking that aching sense of love and love lost.”  Colleen Anderson

“Return to Wildwood”

The ancestral mansion and lands Julia inherits from her aunts comes with a price: regular tribute to the lord of the forest in exchange for his protection. The Green Man regains his power when Julia freely submits to him, finding true ecstasy in the pleasure and pain. When a shady developer threatens Julia, her guardian spirit saves her, and her gratitude comes in the form of the perverse rituals she’s grown to crave.

“In Andrea Dale’s ‘Return to Wildwood,’ Julia inherits the ancestral home along with its mysteries: ‘Every mistress of Wildwood has kept to the rituals.’ There’s a villain making her an offer she can’t refuse and a woodland guardian spirit offering protection in return for submission both painful and ecstatic…”
