Tiana Laveenabout this book: Swirled Satin Sheets I is an anthology compromised of three stories in one book, all written by one author. They are multiracial, erotic tales featuring a black woman as the heroin and a non-black man as the hero. The first story deals head on with domestic violence. It is about finding love in an unlikely way and about surviving an emotionally, verbally and physically abusive situation. It delves into 'rebound romances', blue collar love and the idea that one can only be saved, if they save themselves first.
The second story in the anthology, is a period piece. It takes place in the late 1970s, and deals with customs and religion as well as well flower and book worms. The scene is Baltimore Maryland and the Son of Sam has everyone running scared. This story delves into a woman with a wall up, who takes solace in being alone, and a socially awkward Jewish man, who develops a crush on his icy neighbor. It was truly one of my favorite stories to write. I loved both characters so much.
The third story is about a Native American, Apache to be specific, motorcycle riding gang leader. Tyee is the epitome of beautifully frightening. He shows no fear, yet he has a heart. He sets his eye on a disgruntled social worker one evening at a bar, and is relentless in his pursuit of her. The have a slow build that ends in a fiery passion that would melt the coldest of hearts. This story explores about Apache customs, the mentality of a gang leader and the women that love them. Tyee is one of those characters that 'wrote himself'. His personality is so big, sexy and bold - he didn't need much help from me and he has proven to be a favorite among many of my readers.
I did quite a bit of research for these stories, and all of them hold a special place in my heart.
