Romantics everywhere have been enthralled by Emily Bronte's classic novel of the tragic love between beautiful, spirited Catherine Earnshaw and dark, brooding Heathcliff. The restrained desire between these two star-crossed lovers has always smoldered on the page. And now it ignites into an uncontrollable blaze. In WUTHERING NIGHTS, writer I.J. Miller reimagines this timeless story to reveal the passion between Catherine and Heathcliff--in all its forbidden glory.
Set against the stark, raw beauty of the English moors, Heathcliff, an abandoned orphan, recognizes his soulmate in wild, impulsive Catherine, the only woman who can tame his self-destructive nature. And Catherine cannot deny the all-consuming desire she feels for him, despite his low birth. Together they engage in a fiery affair--one that will possess them, enslave them, and change their destinies forever...
Successful in business but fragile in her personal life, Leigh Stern finds herself at a crossroads: about to turn 30, biological clock ticking, relationship with her boyfriend Walter going nowhere. Then, on the night of her 30th birthday, she receives a wedding proposal from Walter. To celebrate, Leigh’s best friend takes her out for drinks, where she goads Leigh into a last hurrah with a handsome, older stranger--body of a god, just the right amount of sexy gray flecks in his thick black hair. Leigh gets more than she bargained for, as he takes her home to his five-flight walk-up and they climb the stairs to a night of white hot ecstasy. Walter’s sex drive and bedroom skills pale in comparison, and yet he is the stable, successful, family man she has always wanted. But how can she marry one man while she lusts after another--one who is completely anonymous, emotionally aloof, yet sexually addictive? Climbing the Stairs takes you on one woman’s heated erotic journey as she struggles between her carnal passions and practical nature, wondering if she must settle or if she can somehow have it all….
Carla Peters is nearly immobilized by her empty, malaise-filled, affluent suburban lifestyle. No love in her life, strained relationships with both her daughter and second husband, Carla is desperate to move forward in some way, to connect to her family again, to find the intensity of love, to get off the Valium prescribed for her as a cure-all magic carpet. Carla’s one salvation seems to be her strong, powerful alter ego: Mistress Domina … a leather-booted, stiletto-heeled sex goddess who discovers a talent for rendering men as vulnerable as she feels in real life. There’s a sound in her house she can’t identify, a knife in her tire, a forbidden videotape, deviant demands from an unknown stranger. Who is the stalker? Her second husband ... the bouncer at the brothel ... a client ... or any of the men she has depended on all her life who claim the right to control her? A handsome detective is hired to keep her safe. But he won’t let her become dependent on him and insists she rely on herself. Their connection inspires a new sense of self-worth in Carla, opening the door for greater intimacy. Yet the stalker’s deadly presence continues to block her way. Will she crumble, or rise up against him to complete her journey forward?
