We’re planning on releasing this after the holidays — the follow-up to Over the Top, this story follows Suzie and Danny the first Christmas after they’ve gone off to college on opposite coasts— but I wanted to give everyone a holiday present. So here you go! Happy Kwanzukkamas!
Under the Covers: What Dreams May Come
An Erotic New Adult Romance
Her family’s taking the long post-Christmas drive up to the snow as they have nearly every year for as long as she can remember. What Suzie can’t understand is why it’s making her so sad this year.
Well, she knows why: Danny’s not coming.
It’s just that getting all emotional about it is silly: her boyfriend’s never come up to the mountains with her family.

Scary wonderful. Addictive wonderful.
And now they are going to different schools.
And she won’t see him for another three months. Suzie isn’t sure she can survive another three months.
Liz’s dark eyes are focused on Suzie. Ear-buds still firmly in place, she has an obnoxious smirk that portends trouble. She mouths, Missing Daaaaaaaanny?
Suzie feels the heat of annoyance — embarrassment — pushing up, but before she can pay Liz back, their mother turns around, clearly having sensed something, and says, “License-plate bingo?”
Suzie takes the playing card. It gives her an excuse to stare out the window and think of… Continue reading
