“These Heady Erotic Novels Are Essential Reading”

“More than meets the flesh”

Josey, an ex-model and struggling artist, leaves her loveless husband behind in New York to focus on her work upstate. Her retreat is interrupted when she meets brash and alluring Trish, who opens Josey up to a new sexual awakening. But when she gets her big break back in city, will Josey’s ambitions pull the new lovers apart?

Burning Blue by Cara Benedetto is one of the New Lovers, a series of short erotic fiction published by Badlands Unlimited. Inspired by Maurice Girodias’ legendary Olympia Press, New Lovers features the raw and uncut writings of authors new to the erotic romance genre. Each story has its own unique take on relationships, intimacy, and sex, as well as the complexities that bedevil contemporary life and culture today.

Each novella in the New Lovers series is an independent story of about 12,000 – 18,000 words in length. Burning Blue is a subtly blossoming examination of what happens when two very different women at totally different points in their lives come together and shake each other to the core.

The design of New Lovers pays homage to the classic covers of the books published by Olympia Press. The “soft-touch” lamination and embossed lettering on the front covers of the paperback editions make these novellas a precious edition to any library. Both paperback and ebook editions feature special color endpaper artworks by Mira Dancy.

Softcover, perfect-bound, b&w.
