A Quick and Steamy Read

Milk & Honey: A Love Story is a very smutty romance novel about a writer and a pastry chef. It’s got delicious food descriptions, shocking plot twists, and of course…lots of sex.

It’s kind of like Fifty Shades of Grey, but with less bondage and more chocolate soufflés. One reader calls it, “The best erotica I’ve ever read.”


Alexandra has contributed essays, stories, interviews, advice, and whatnot for the following books. Buy them. Read them. Thank you for supporting these terrific authors.
