a new novella appears: Other Options

A few years ago, I was reading some fiction by Shon Richards. One of his ongoing series was (maybe is?) about an island where lots of sex happens.

It inspired me to write my own version. Shon himself helped workshop it for me. And now you can read the result:

Other Options: an Erotic Fantasy, by JJ Rose. (That’s me.)

Here’s the description:

Ala, an island princess in a world where magic is real, hasn’t spent her entire life waiting around for Kivol to claim her. Especially when he does it the night before departing on a long sea voyage, leaving her alone and untouchable. And that’s when Ala realizes that she’s in love with someone else: Vivia, her best friend, a woman from another clan on the island. With Kivol gone and Ala claimed, however, they cannot act upon their love, for the magic of the claiming would burn Ala and Vivia alive the moment they interfere with it.

Fortunately for Ala, her people are kind, loving, and very intelligent. Mistress Dashia, who rules the island’s women, has magic. Sila, Ala’s older sister, has advice. Vivia, who Ala has come to love, has ideas. But in the end, will Ala be able to choose Vivia at all? Or will she be forced to spend her life with Kivol, seeing the woman she loves but unable to love her the way her heart knows she must?

One thing Ala learns, though, is that there are always other options… if only she can find them.

I’m really proud of the worldbuilding and characterization in this story. And, of course, there’s a ton of sex.

Thanks once again to Sizzler Editions for publishing the story, and thanks to you for (hopefully) reading it. If you like it, please leave a review on Amazon. I’d really appreciate it.
