About my story:
Satisfy My Craving by Sheri Lynn
Luckee, Lucille Aiken, didn’t hide away from life in her uncomplicated, somewhat isolated existence; she simply didn’t desire exposing herself to certain behaviors. And Preston Ingram incorporated too many that tested her boundaries.
Rich. Hot. Smokin’ hot. Super sexy. Confident. Popular. Luckee didn’t want any part of it. But attraction is a beast not easily confined. And the more he pursues her, the weaker she becomes.
Some habits are hard to break, especially the ones we use as defense mechanisms. Preston is linked to the tragic event that altered Luckee’s perception of herself. Will she allow it tear them apart or join them together? Will he?
The year is 1890. The Barrow Haven Asylum is a private facility in rural England housing some of the country’s wealthiest insane. Some inmates are truly insane, some banished by family members, others perhaps feigning insanity and with questionable agendas.
Ten stories of shock and suspense brought to you by ten of your favorite authors.
About my story:
Adeline’s Admission – Sheri Lynn
Adeline Shaw didn’t conform to her wealthy family’s expectations. She didn’t conform to anyone’s. Exasperating and shocking others delighted her. She thrived in causing commotion and feigning either innocence, ignorance, or both. As a teen, her morbid fascination with suspected murderer and radical scientist, Edgar Walker, his companion, Louisa Becker, and the investigating detective, Stanley Price, led her down a path of grief, denial, and self-destruction.
Residing almost half of her five and thirty years in asylums since, along with her vivid imagination, and victim to experimental, atrocious procedures, Adeline can’t distinguish reality from fantasy. What pleasures existed? What horrors ensued? Or did she discover pleasures in the horrors?
Transferred to Barrow Haven, detective Stanley Price is not only physically scarred from imprisonment and his use as a test subject at the hands of Edgar, but completely withdrawn and unresponsive. It prompts a series of dreadful encounters and realizations that test Adeline’s sanity beyond what she might be capable of withstanding. Does she truly possess the resilience to persevere any condemnation or hardship she suffered? Or does she learn she never endured the worst alone?
Some individuals live within their own set of boundaries. “We do what we must for those we love.”
Grave Importance – no longer available
This is no longer available, but I have a connected story releasing in the Asylum anthology releasing in January 2020.
It’s 1870 in a rural setting on the outskirts of London. Famed surgeon Dr. Benedict Morrow hosts an elite few surgical trainees at the renowned Morrow Academy of Anatomy and Science.
Though the days of Burke and Hare are long gone, and body snatching and grave robbing a seemingly thing of the past, the supply of high-quality fresh cadavers is still lacking.
Each student of Dr. Morrow must procure a fresh corpse for their very own study, or face expulsion from the prestigious academy.
These hand-chosen students are the best and brightest in the country. They are also devious, conniving, and determined to do whatever they must to stay in the academy and under the tutelage of Dr. Morrow. Even turn against each other if necessary.
In the cards will be manipulation, murder, betrayal, sex, blackmail, and of course, money always talks.
