About the Authors


Isabel James is a pseudonym for two authors that collaborate to bring you tales of emotional discovery.

One is Linzi Basset―a bestselling fiction writer of suspense filled romance erotica books who refuses to be bound to any one sub-genre. She prefers instead to stretch herself as a storyteller which has resulted in her researching and writing historical and even paranormal themed works. Her initial offering: Club Alpha Cove, reached Amazon’s Bestseller list, and she has been on those lists regularly ever since. Labeling her as prolific is a gross understatement as just a few short years later she has now been published over sixty times; a total which fails to take into account the published works of her alter ego: Isabel James.

Linzi believes that by telling stories in her own voice, she can better share with her readers the essence of her being: her passionate nature; her motivations; and her wildest fantasies. Her advice: “Believe in the passions driving your desires; live them; enjoy them; and allow them to bring you happiness.”

The other Author, James Calderaro, is a poet at heart and loves the nuances of wordplay. Like a true Artist, he paints a canvas with words, drawing you into his imagination, seducing you with their expressive beauty. He loves everything Shakespeare and draws his inspiration from the beauty of true passion and lust of life and love.

The day these two met, they discovered they had a writing chemistry. Their minds sparred and they converted their passion for words into a journey of discovery that happened without any conscious decision.

Their writing is intense, it’s intimate and no holds barred. They openly explore the sensual and erotic emotions that rule the human body and mind. They’re each other’s yin and yang, challenging their minds and emotions to constantly explode in the stories they write. It’s an anthology of colorful, winding words that more than tell a story, it draws you inside, inviting you to feel each and every touch, see every emotion and experience the explosive sensations for yourself as they guide you through a maze of suspense with a touch of pleasurable erotica.

Be prepared for intense spiritual experiences.

The Crow's Nest

Previously published as the box set, The White Pearl

Jack Cavallaro

“It’s not your p*ssy, baby. It’s mine. You just get to wear it.”

It was Kismet. A one in a million chance encounters. Stopping in for a quick double shot, then suddenly, magically, there she was―a beautiful brunette across the room at Cafe Des Artiste on the upper Westside of Manhattan.

Liz Bennet

“Well, hell, honey, if I have to explain it, I must be doing something seriously wrong.”

In New York on a business trip, she had no intention of becoming involved with anyone. That notion shot through the roof the moment she touched the intriguing silver fox’s hand, an electric shock ripped through her core, leaving her stunned.

Their meeting unleashed their wildest fantasies and kicked open a floodgate of endogenous opioids to surge through their veins. They threw caution to the wind and plunged into an unknown void that would forever change their destiny on a journey on a Harley Davidson―The White Pearl.

Fate intervened when Jack’s past caught up with them. Will Liz’s mistrust and Jack’s unwillingness to acknowledge the truth tear their newfound love apart? And would he be able to keep her safe when ghosts from his past are out for revenge?

Two people have been searching for THE one an entire lifetime. Did they find it, this late in live? Could they be proof that you’re never too old to find love?

Or would an epoch of emotional demons tear them apart?

This story is a journey filled with the discovery of raw emotions and unbridled eroticism between two lovers who have given up on finding love.

Santa's Kiss

A hot, naughty Christmas Story

A hunky Santa.

One little elf.

An incredibly sexy one-night stand . . . or was it?

Avery Blain is a partner in a successful catering company who is thought of by the people around her as being smart, steady, and responsible—a person who makes good decisions. What few people know is that Avery has a wild passionate side which she rarely allows out of its cage to play. Overbooking by her partners forces Avery to work a corporate party on Christmas eve for a large company run by the type of men she tries to avoid—rich, handsome, and powerful men who are accustomed to getting what they want.


Editor’s Notes:

“If this holiday season story doesn’t make you emotional . . . you need to check to see if you still have a pulse.”

“This is one Santa story you will definitely have to keep hidden from the kids.”

A sweet Domination Romance

By Linzi Basset writing as ISABEL JAMES

Mistletoe Bride is the story of two people struggling to find their happy ever after.


“You should never issue such a challenge to a man like me.” The smile on his lips was one of anticipation. “You, sweetheart, are going to eat your words.”


Kayla Silver believed she had it all. A successful company and doing what she loved.


But when a selfish act threatened to destroy everything she worked so hard to achieve, there was nothing she could do to save it.


Until Steele Blake, hotel tycoon, and the last man she’d ever fall for, made a proposal that shocked her as much as it excited her. Not that she’d ever admit it … at least, not to him.


Kayla was unprepared for the force that was Steele, especially when he managed to tap into her natural submissive.


Steele had one goal: to make Kayla his, and he was prepared to play dirty to achieve it. Now, all he had to do was ensure the seductive cocoon he’d charmed her into under the Mistletoe didn’t explode in his face.


Did they dare to trust in the promise of a kiss under the Mistletoe?


Editor's Note:

A quick sexy read that will keep you warmer than chestnuts roasting on an open fire or any hot cocoa ever could. Cozy up and witness the heated magic between Kayla and Steele as they head for the mistletoe.
