Book Description

Originally featured in the anthology Fantasies of a Housewife edited by Tina Pollick, "Desert Dreams" is a contemporary romantic short story. Shaylene Thomas is a busy working mom. Raising her two girls on her own in rural Arizona's high desert country, each day is an adventure filled with both beauty and challenges-- and she wouldn't trade a moment of it for all the riches in all the skyscrapers in the world. But sometimes she dreams of a warm pair of arms to curl into at night ... and sometimes dreams come true.

Reviews of Sophia Jones' writing:

"Her writing is just so captivating and the worlds she creates is just so hypnotizing you'll never want to leave them to go back to your own reality." -- Goodreads Review

"Great short story, in fact one of the best I've read. The story was straight to the point, thrilling ... If there was a follow up novella I wouldn't hesitate to download it as I would love to know what happens next ..."
- Amazon UK Review

"Sophia Jones is absolutely brilliant! The story was riveting, witty and surprisingly hilarious ... it has all the key elements to keep the reader on the edge of their seat: mystery, thrill, romance, comical dialogue, and exotic location!"
- Sky: A Booknatic

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Neighbour September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was one of the short (5000K) stories featured in the Fantasies of a Housewife Anthology edited by Tina Pollick.

Sophia's story was funny and sweet and sexy hot! Everything a fantasy should be. :-)

I would love to see this expanded into a novella cause this sexy neighbour seemed like he had lots of interesting things to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, cute and sexy February 21, 2014

This is the first piece from Sophia Jones I've bought, and I'm definitely coming back for more.

Shay's is shocked when her sister in law tells her she hired an male escort for her. But when the guy shows up, well, anger's the last thing on her mind.

This short story is a nice start would like to read more. I liked that she was a single parent and her two little ones were adorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful sexy read September 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Never more have I wanted to be a single mother of two than after reading Desert Dreams. Of course I would need to be Shaylene for it to work. This is my favorite of Sophia Jones' short stories. I couldn't put it down and laughed as well as sighed through out the story. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good erotic short story. Loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enticing Scene! September 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a wonderful short, a scene of a hot encounter. I really enjoyed it and found myself wanting to know more. I was glad to find that Shay and Derek's story continues. Not quite the short story I was expecting, a little fast paced, could have been great with just a little more detail. I will definitely read other books by this author and was a great introduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute-steamy. Can't go wrong! September 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is best described as cute-steamy. It's fun and makes a great palate cleanser between longer novels. Just like her other novels, which are great and entertaining and perfect between longer works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, Sweet, and Sexy September 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Divorced Mama Shaylene Thomas loves her kiddos and her desert home, but it gets a little lonely. Her sister-in-law's solution? Take the kids for the weekend and hire an escort to help Shay get her groove back. Shay balks at first, but when tall, dark, and gorgeous shows up at her door, who is she to pass up a fantasy come to life?

Sophia has a real knack for mixing humor with her steam and for creating compelling characters that you just can't help but connect with and root for. And she'll always leave you wanting more (hint hint, Sohpia)!
