Pockets of Joy

When it's hard to find happiness, look for the tiny pockets of joy.

A book of photographs to cheer, taken of nature.

Pockets of Joy began online as a reaction to the bushfires that burned across much of Australia. Cate needed to halt her spirally negative thoughts and turned to nature. The posts proved popular and friends encouraged the creation of a book.

Pockets of Joy is a hardback book, containing 102 photographs of nature, taken between 2015 and 2020. Each photograph is depicted in colour on a full 280 x 216 mm page. A short comment with information, location and date is given for each image.

Photographs include sunrises, sunsets, clouds, oceans, birds, insects, trees, flowers, fish and other sea creatures, from landscapes to macros and underwater shots.

These images use a different angle or view to show the wonder of the world around you. Every photo is taken on a basic point-and-click camera by an amateur, which may inspire you to do the same.

Pockets of Joy is perfect for remembering the joy found in nature, often needed during the tough moments.

 Team Player

She’s never been shy about what she wants – and now she wants them both...

Hannah Maynard, sports reporter, is sure it’s only her lust-filled fantasies linking Australian rugby league captain, Charlie Maxxin, with relative newcomer, Lyle Smythe-Jones. She and Charlie have shared quite a few steamy sessions over the years, so surely he’s not in a relationship with the young, unflappable player she’s dubbed Marble Boy?

Hannah lures Charlie to dinner and his reaction is all the answer she needs. But she doesn’t want to report on the biggest secret in Australian sport—she wants to take part. However, it’s not just Charlie’s decision and it can’t be just casual. If Hannah wants in, she has to be all in, with Lyle, with Charlie, and with the hottest action any of them have ever experienced.

Secret Confessions: Down and Dusty - Lucky

They say that no one has secrets in a small town—these women prove them wrong.

Eight brand-new stories from some of Australia's hottest writers in Australia's hottest genre. From the bar stools of the local pub to the wide open plains of the biggest stations in the world, these tales travel the dusty roads to the heart of Australia and the women who understand how to work hard—and play even harder.

In the latest in the wildly successful Secret Confessions series from Escape Publishing, the women of Down & Dusty invite you into their lives—and their bedrooms.

As the single female owner  of Milpinyani Spring’s only pub, Lucky has learned that her behaviour has to be above reproach. She works hard at home, and when she needs to play hard, she does so—far away from the prying eyes of her neighbours and friends. So when the hot new cop swaggers up to bar, she knows the rules: look, don’t touch. But Dare doesn’t know how to play her game, and he’s about to show her that the only rules that count are the ones that you break.

Michael's Moment in Tonight She's Yours: Cuckold Fantasies

Go beyond traditional fantasy, cuckolding is where its at!

You’re fast asleep and your wife comes home late. She whispers a question next to your ear, “Would you like to know what I just let another man do to me?” Her words aren’t loud, but the sentiment rouses you.
What if you want to show your husband how you need to be taken by other men, while he is only permitted to watch?
What if you’ve known for a while now that your wife isn’t satisfied, and that it’s time to enlist the help of another man, finally giving her what she wants? What she deserves; a man whose physical prowess far surpasses your own.
These are but some of the aspects of the cuckolding fantasy.
Cuckolding is deeply layered. From privately whispered scenes between a Hotwife and her Cuck, to a wide range of humiliation play requiring the adept skills of a big, beautiful Bull…or three.
“Tonight, She’s Yours” is guaranteed to get you randy. I must warn you though, with this much 'One Handed Reading', you may experience a bit of a hand cramp. I do hope that you have a good time.

Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?

Lana lives her life by her own rules – and she has very few. What she wants, she goes for, and she very rarely fails. So when a young, handsome waiter at her favourite restaurant catches her eye, she has no hesitation in asking him to escort her home.

Free read!   30 November Kisses

Cate Ellink honours Movember - the month when men grow moustaches - with a fun story.

There’s nothing Briana hates more than a hairy lip. Moustaches make her moan. She simply refuses to see any advantage in having a spiky caterpillar living on your face. And she has never, ever kissed a man with a mo.

But it’s November when lots of men grow a mo to raise money for charity, and in Briana’s office this year, that means kissing, lots of kissing. For every kiss a moustache-wearing man gets during the thirty days of ‘Movember’ money is donated to the charity.

Can Briana come to terms with hairy top lips or will thirty November kisses break her?

Deep Diving

From Cate Ellink comes a sun-soaked, sandy, seaside erotic novel about a tropical paradise, two athletes used to getting physical, and a sex-filled, no-strings holiday fling.

Samantha is celebrating her newly retired status from competitive triathlons with a diving holiday in her favourite place in the world: Australia’s Lord Howe Island. But all divers need a buddy, and Sam can’t dive solo. A chance meeting with rugby league superstar Cooper Sterling in the dive shop seems serendipitous. Sam can’t wait to have a partner who might be able to keep up with her.

It soon becomes evident that Cooper and Sam are compatible both in and out of the water, and things gets seriously sexy. But Sam is disinclined to be another football groupie, and Cooper has been burned before. So the rules are clear: a holiday fling, no strings attached, and they part as friends at the end.
But as the final days of their time together come to a close and a life apart becomes a reality, Sam and Cooper start to question their decision. Is this holiday fling really the finish line or can Sam and Cooper turn their friendly competition into more than sizzling sex?
