The images that inspired a story…

by on June 15, 2016

When I agreed to write a story for the Irrevocably Claimed Anthology last summer, I knew it was going to be a challenge. The premise of the project was to write stories about forbidden relationships. I wanted to write something about two people who become step-siblings because I’ve always wondered why more adults aren’t attracted to step-siblings they never met. The first image I took inspiration from was a beautiful wedding image, but in my mind the two in the photo weren’t the bride and groom. They were the best man and maid of honor who were also new step-siblings….


The second image I was drawn to was this one of a sexy man behind a bar…

Ashley Gahl lost her virginity in a wild moment of passion after a night of celebration, and Tanner Lake has haunted her dreams ever since. One-night flings aren’t suitable for relationships, so she’s determined to pretend it never happened, only he reappears in her life, and throws her carefully laid out plans into disarray.

When he becomes a permanent fixture in her world as her new stepbrother, she knows she should put their passionate past behind her, but she finds herself craving him more and more. Is she really ready for the whirlwind that Tempting Tanner will bring?

Previously included in the Irrevocably Claimed Anthology Fall of 2015 – This story has been expanded and re-released.
