***This is book 2 of a historical erotic romance serial.
It cannot be read as a standalone novella.*** Lady Killane is everything a woman in 1882 is not supposed to be. A wealthy widow of independent means, she takes lovers, frequents parties of the demimonde, and does exactly what pleases her. That is, until her carriage is overtaken by a highwayman who calls himself Wolf. Wolf takes Lady Killane for ransom, determined to hold her until her family pays him. But the longer she is captive, the more the two are drawn to each other. Soon, Lady Killane is torn between her desperate need to escape capture and her all-consuming desire for the mysterious highwayman who claims her soul the way no man ever has.
Jesus loves people. Wouldn't it make sense that those who claim to love Jesus would love the same people Jesus loves? Nouns need verbs, a requirement that's more than just a grammatical truth; it's a spiritual truth.
The noun Christian and the noun church require action verbs to fulfill their purpose. That's why Jesus invites Christians and churches everywhere to perform the greatest action of all: loving people. Jesus Prom is an extravagant party that celebrates the very people Jesus died to love. You will laugh and cry as you move through the pages of this book, and by the end of it, you'll want to join the dance.

Alex Austin is nearing thirty; a self-confessed fake, charlatan, degenerate and – worst of all – a failed poet, Alex’s life has become a meaning sequence of bad habits and poor decisions. He ekes out a living doing a job that makes him feel dirty and ashamed.
His only friend, JB – the developmentally arrested offspring of two famous psychologists – is just as broken as he is. He’s emotionally uninvestable: incapable of experiencing pleasure or joy without resorting to unhealthy extremes, Alex’s days are divided between sofa-mining and grief-surfing; shiftily rummaging down the backs of display model couches for fallen coins and notes, and cynically manipulating strangers’ grief for his own depraved gratification. As his self-destructive behaviour escalates and his self-loathing deepens, Alex is relently, savagely cross-examined and berated by the voice of his own conscience, which speaks to him in the sneering, righteous tones of a retired TV news show host. When Edie – a former grief conquest, now wise to his scam – shows up out of his sordid past, he’s not sure if she’s here to save him or destroy him, and he can’t decide which is the more terrifying prospect. Anhedonia is a darkly comic study of the way human beings fetishise death; a story about the struggle to find meaning in the disconnected jumble of reality TV, deodorant ads and celebrity murderers; a tribute to the best of our culture and an indictment of the worst.
