Velvet Nights and Black Lace Stories

Gray Days Publishing

A woman's intuition. It's real. Everyone knows it. And it's always right.

This compilation contains all four stories in the Velvet Nights and Black Lace Stories.

Jenny's Blue Velvet:
Jenny's stuck.

She's tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let's just say it's been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover's Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She'll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she's writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

Still Nights:
Sammy's lost.

She's looking for a way out of the dark pit she's swimming in. A former police officer, she spends her days sitting on the couch and nights sleeping with her old coworker turned friend with benefits. She shot a kid. It wasn't intentional. He threatened her and she panicked. But that one mistake won't stop haunting her. It's destroyed her life, if that's what you'd call the daily routine she lived before that unfortunate event.

Sammy has never seen a ghost even though her estranged husband is the famous Walker the Ghost Stalker, ghost hunter extraordinaire. She used to want so desperately to experience what her husband and friends call a supernatural thrill, but that desire ended when her life fell apart. The only reason she continues going on investigations is to spend time with her husband.

One night, Sammy receives a worrisome call. She rushes out in a raging storm to locate her husband. What she finds instead would scare the shit out of anyone. And she regrets ever going on that last paranormal investigation. What has this ghost hunting crap gotten her into anyway?

The Woman in Black Lace:
Winnie's mad.

Her wealthy husband is cheating on her and she's about to put a stop to it. She spends her days and nights plotting a way to murder him, to finally end his betrayals and lies. But when she does, she’s forced to face his lover as well. Winnie discovers that she may have made a grave mistake and there is no going back. Will this error in judgment so long ago be the end of her life too? What has this killing business gotten her into?

Mathilde, A Woman of Circumstance:
Mathilde dreams.

She longs to grace the silver screen and to find love. If she could have them both, then all the better. But instead, she works at a local saloon and spreads her love to those willing pay. When a tall mysterious man attempts to punish Mathilde for her sins, she makes other plans. After all, cheaters must pay, darling.

The origin of Mathilde.

For adults only.
