What’s My Newest 1NS Book Coming????              TANTRIC STORM

For those die hard fans of the 1NS series, you may have read my very first 1Night Stand story: Designing Passion. It takes place in a Spanish Castle Resort, one of many new, exotic locations in the Castillo Hotel Chain. Tawny gets her romantic fulfillment and HEA in Designing Passion, but alas, her best friend Cindy had a date that night, in the same castle!

A number of reviewers and readers commented they would like to hear Cindy’s story from that night, and Now They Will!!!

In Tantric Storm, Cindy has a very challenging situation to overcome in order to get her night of lustful pleasure, or rather, her date does. It may start with a seaside dinner; we know that much from Designing Passion, however, Madame Eve has a few spectacular surprises for their unique date. After dinner, there’s a trip to a remote and very HOT location.

This is another paranormal romance… My tall, dark and handsome hero, has an unusual ability, he deems a dark curse! Without letting the cat out of the bag, I can say, having an interlude in the great outdoors, proves life-threatening, exciting and we hope he can end his 1Night Stand with a BIG BANG, but preferably, the kind of his choice!



Blurb for Tantric Storm:

Therapist Laura Wellington is eager to end her sexual dry spell. Her skill of helping couples achieve personal happiness is illusive in her own life. She jets off to a small island in Spain for a spectacular night of mind-blowing pleasure through the services of 1NS, but her match has a challenge that might make her goal unreachable.

Declan Tempest hasn’t had a climax in years. Not because he can’t, but because he won’t; his dire fear for the consequences of fulfillment deter him. Declan turns to the aid of Madame Eve to create a match that can allow him the satisfaction he desperately needs, despite the challenge he deems a dark curse. 

Excerpt for Tantric Storm:

“Wait a second; you’re saying you could tell things about me just by looking?”

“Yes, I can,” she smirked.

“Okay,” He challenged. “Give it your best shot.” Declan stood face to face with her.

“Well, let’s see,” she folded her arms and put on her assessment cap. “You dressed in casual attire, so you wanted to appear relaxed and confident for our date, but you’re particular about your clothing; silk, white, button down shirt, the first few buttons are open, and Chimo dress pants, so you aren’t uptight, but still somewhat conservative.”

Declan arched his brows. “Go on.”

“You shave your head, but from the looks of your five o’clock shadow, it’s more for convenience, rather than esthetics, you have a solid build, but wear loose clothing. You don’t go out of your way to show your defined muscles, but you have an exceptionally competitive nature. I would say, you’re a professional athlete, a full contact sport of some kind.”

“Wow.” He nodded, and waited for more.

“You’re engaging and kind. The thin detailed line of facial hair that frames your jaw, suggests to me you like to have some mystery and can be a very private person, but you don’t hide. If people ask your opinion, you’re honest and open, sometimes more than you intend to be.”

“You’re good.”

“It’s a gift, what can I say?”

“I’m speechless.”

“Do you want to try and figure me out?” Taunting a little, she was curious about his perception of her.

“Sure, I may not be as good at it as you are, but I’ll give it a try.”

“Ready.” Laura dropped her arms to her side and lifted her chin with a smile.

“Let’s see, you’re sweet, intelligent, and sexy as hell.”

She covered her mouth and stifled a giggle. “Be serious.”

“I am.” Declan reached up and smoothed a stray tress of hair back from her cheek. His touch stirred something deep inside.



Even More Exciting News For My 1NS Stories!

IN PRINT Coming Soon…

SHADOWED DESIRES- An Anthology


What could a vampire, ghost, witch, dragons and a castle in Spain possibly have in common? The mystical match making services of Madame Evangeline, for the romantically impaired!

Kali Willows shadows worlds of passion and intrigue in five erotic tales that are filled with toe curling desire, surprising twists, danger, and infused with a little humor that will leave you laughing, crying and clenching the book in anticipation. 1Night Stand is the hottest, fastest growing short series getting rave reviews.

“Kali Willows does it again! She writes such wonderful characters that you really get invested with them... Bravo Kali!” ~Night Owl Reviews

All Kali Willow’s 1NS books can be found at:




Curious as to what readers would like to see next, I created an online survey about various aspects they would like to see in a story. Everything from genre and length, to specific settings. So far, I had some interesting results, but I am keeping the survey active, still looking for more reader input.

I want YOU to tell me where my next published story should take place! This survey has multiple choice options, as well as an “other” option, to add specific suggestions! I would LOVE to get your feedback.

Tell me where you want a story to take place, and what the appeal about that location would be! Comment here, let’s see what the next best seller will look like!
