The Outsider and Alice After Hours

by Galia Ryan

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

GENRE: erotic romance

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

THE OUTSIDER
Cassie Jonsson, a pretty blonde police officer, is given the odd jobs the men don’t want, in this case checking out an old house the locals believe is haunted. The McAllister house is indeed haunted, but not by a ghost. Prophet is a ruggedly handsome former vet. He awakens something primal in Cassie, a boundless desire that blinds her to the dangers of bedding a stranger.


ALICE AFTER HOURS
In her relationships, Alice likes to be in charge. One evening she stumbles across an Internet chat room inhabited by submissives and dominants. Archangel enters and lures Alice into a private conversation, one that throws her beliefs about female empowerment into doubt. In person he is even more enticing, inviting her to his home, but only if she is willing to put her fate in his hands.

excerpt

 

ALICE AFTER HOURS

 

She caught her reflection in the mirrored shelves behind the bar. Hair piled up on top of her head, gray eyes wide and alluring thanks to lash extensions, and a perfectly applied pout of glossy red lipstick.

 

Okay, she might have overdone it a little. But she had a point to make.

 

Unless she truly had been taken in, and was wasting her time.

 

And then she saw him.

 

Behind, and a little to the right, he was looking directly at her, and suddenly her heart was beating loud enough for everyone in the place to hear, for she’d never imagined for one moment he’d be that attractive.

 

Locking his reflected gaze, she lifted her glass to her lips once more. It was a gesture of defiance. Of insolence even, and in response he raised an eyebrow and grinned.

 

And then he was leaning an elbow on the bar and signalling to the bartender.

 

“Hi,” he said to her, his voice warm and thankfully non-threatening. “Glad you could make it. Drink?”

 

He was indicating the remnants in her glass.

 

“Thanks.”

 

“And it is …?”

 

“Oh. Bourbon.”

 

“Neat? I should have guessed.”

 

“Why?” Alice was still bemused by his appearance. He looked nothing like she’d imagined.

 

“Because you’re only here to prove a point.”

 

Gathering their drinks, he led her over to the brick hearth and a couple of comfortable armchairs. After settling in and taking a mouthful of wheat beer, he placed his pint on the low table between them

 

“I would ask if you’ve travelled far,” he said, “but I doubt you’d tell me.”

 

“You’re right,” she replied, “I wouldn’t.”

 

“Well, my journey was relatively short.”

 

“And no doubt why you chose this place.”

 

“That, and other reasons.”

 

“Such as?”

 

“A very good restaurant around the corner, for one.”

 

Alice wished his eyes weren’t quite so distracting. And that his features weren’t so strong and defined. Why couldn’t he have been balding and rippled with excess weight, or his skin blotchy, with a nasty sheen of sweat? Instead he was so darned good-looking it was as if the ground had shifted beneath her. She needed to reassert herself.

 

“I see. So this is your local?”

 

He shook his head.

 

“Not particularly. Though I come here enough to be known to some of the staff. What about you? Any favourite haunts around where you live?”

 

“Not really. A wine bar close to where I work in the city, but other than that, no.”

There was a moment of silence.

 

He didn’t look like a man who enjoyed dominating women, she thought. Though exactly what such a person should look like she had no idea. What had she expected? An overpowering persona, and conversation littered with barely contained demands and innuendo?

 

Instead, Archangel was relaxed, and if she were to choose one word, she would describe him as engaging.

 

“I almost didn’t come,” she said after a moment.

 

He nodded, as if he expected nothing less.

review

Alice after hours

It is well written.  I must admit I do like this author’s style.  For erotica it is definitely hot and steamy in all the right places.  I’m not in agreement with the philosophies she attributes to submissiveness and women, and I don’t agree with a great deal of the underlying ideology here.  Other than that, on a strictly technical basis, it was interesting to read and entertaining for me.

As an independent reviewer for Romance that Rocks, I give this one a technical rating of four Hearts and a content of three, if thats allowed!  😉

Outsider
An interesting story.  It definitely caught and held my attention.  Not your normal formula for a romance novel, so I was always curious as to where she was going to go with it.  Never expected the ending either.

As an independent reviewer for Romance that Rocks, I’m giving this one four Hearts.  It was interesting, and different, but nothing I would keep on my shelf.
