A Brilliant Story Of Lesbian Love

From the back:

Lisa Sheridan—a beautiful woman, alone and unfulfilled, driven by unnatural desires… Avery Lawes— only half a man because he had never loved a woman…
They met, and each saw in the other a chance for escape. And so, in a frantic flight for normality, they were married. But they could not know the terrible depths into which their union would plunge them.
Desperate Asylum is the gripping story of a marriage made in Hell.

A brutal yet tender story of shrimp-boat fishermen, their pleasures and their shoreside women.
The Story of a Society Girl’s Forbidden Love

From the back:

She was bait in Ruby’s Place
The dance floor at Ruby’s Place was the size of a postage stamp. Leona pressed into the milling mob with all her guards down—her passion showing… She was the pampered darling of the upper crust, but she had a big yen for the baser things in life… The men fresh off the shrimp boats were her meat… She loved the way they came out of the sea demanding the satisfaction of all their hungers —for food, for liquor, for women. Maybe she didn’t belong there, but she was powerless to fight the pull Ruby’s Place had on her—and carried away with desire for the only man who ever turned her down. She’d win him, even if she had to sink to his level to get him!
