This is a short paranormal fantasy romance
(Elize Love is Julie Nicholls)
Elsa is a hard-working, single 35 year old woman who loves to read paranormal books. She hides herself away and lives every moment with her book boyfriends and as long as she has a never-ending supply of them, and wine, she appears to be happy. At least that what she tells herself. She’s brash and a control freak, constantly stressed and a bit of a bitch. Once her workday is over she retreats to her apartment and escapes to the fantasy land of her books and avoids relationships, despite secretly yearning to be involve
d with someone. It’s only after she meets Jasper that she learns she needs therapy. But this is a different kind of therapy – there’s no psychiatrist.
At Club Fantazia, Elsa comes face to face with her fears and has to get over the inhibitions that hold her prisoner. Club Fantazia isn’t just any club and it’s invitation only, but once you’re in, you learn its secrets and will never want to leave.
Fantazia is the first book in this series and you will learn a little of what goes on in this secret club. The owners and the workers are not like anyone else you’ve ever met.
This is a mild BDSM, erotic, self-effacing short story.
So what are you waiting for? Put that paranormal book down and get yourself over to Fantazia, the club where you won’t want to leave.

Excerpt from Fantazia
I must have dozed off on the sofa and awoke to a hammering on the door. This will be my neighbor, Mrs. Schubert. I always drop in on Sundays to see if she needs anything from the store and she’ll probably be wondering where I am.
“I’m coming Mrs. Shubert!”
I didn’t expect to find Jasper leaning in the doorway, holding a bottle of champagne and wearing an apologetic expression. He’s using those big baby browns again to sway me. Is it working? Fuck no, not this time.
“What do you want?”
“Good afternoon to you too!” He held up the bottle of champagne. “May I come in? I bring gifts.” His wide grin wasn’t going to win me over.
“I don’t drink champagne, and no, you can’t.”
Go girl! You tell him!
“I know you’re still mad at me, but I wanted to drop by and see if we can work it out.”
“Why? You worried I’m going to have my blood tested for drugs?”
“You can have all the tests you want, Elsa. I promise you they won’t find anything. I didn’t drug you and I know you know that, deep inside.”
He edged closer. His dark eyes brightened quickly, turning amber. I stared in silence and thought about it, and knew he wasn’t lying, and going for tests would be a waste of time and money. But I’d had my pride wounded and needed to stand tall.
Jasper lowered his head and blew out an exasperated sigh.
“Will you let me explain about yesterday? Please?” He stared at me with a pitiful look that any cold-hearted bitch would forgive.
Do I have ‘sucker’ tattooed across my forehead? I’m sure I do, because he’s working me and using every trick that yanks on my heart strings.
I moved to the side and gestured for him to come in and instantly the sad puppy face turned to a beaming grin.
You got me, fucker.
Jasper made himself comfortable on the sofa after placing the bottle on the dining table. He obviously can’t read minds because he would know I don’t drink champagne. So that’s one mystery solved!
“Come and sit next to me Elsa, I want to explain everything.”
His outstretched hand seemed to draw me in. It’s that magnet thing again. I can’t resist him. It doesn’t help when he’s looking so damn sexy in those torn jeans and muscle tee, and I swear he’s slapped extra conditioner on that already silky hair just to distract me. I could play with that all day.
“Out with it then, I have stuff to do today.”
This is me trying to recover my wounded pride. I have to at least try to show I’m not that much of a pushover.
“Have you had a full recall of your time in the room yet?”
His brow cocked and judging by the smirk, he already knew the answer.
“Yes… Thank you.”
Chuckling as he scratched his chin, he gave me a wicked stare.
“So, you must realize by now, that isn’t normal? When was the last time a memory made you orgasm?”
“I never said I had an orgasm.”
“Sweetheart, it’s what happens. I don’t need you to tell me.”
“Yup, and each time you replay the full scene, it will happen. Pretty amazing, huh?”
My attempts to stifle a grin were useless, we both knew it. After taking a deep breath, I blew out a heavy sigh and let my head fall against the back of the sofa.
“Okay, I believe you. You didn’t drug me.”
“Thanks, Elsa. Trust is very important between people, and I want you to trust me. It will help you”
My head snapped forward as I glared at him. “Help me? What do I need help for? You make it sound like I’m a basket case or something.”
“We both know you have… issues.”
“No, I don’t!”
“Yes, you do. Stop lying to yourself.”
He touched his hand to mine and I wanted to pull away but he pressed down firmly so I couldn’t move it.
“Am I so easy to read?”
“Nah, not that easy. I have help.”

Okay, do don’t let the shorter story full you. It may not be a full length novel but this bad boy packs more heat than some stand alone 400 page ones I’ve read.
You’ll find yourself immersed in Elsa’s world where she may seem kind of b@$#))y but she likes to keep her life together and to herself. Insecurities are there also but she makes up for it with her imagination that’s for sure. This helped me relate to her and really dive into the story. Now I know I’m not giving a lot away here became you have to buy it yourself, but you’re gonna want to buy it.
You are going wish to walk into your office and find Jasper.
You are going to wish there was a secret Club Fantazia.
And you’re are going to wish you had gotten that private invite.
Also, I have the audio version which takes the story slow but the narrator gets into the story with the different inflections and tones used throughout. That is worth a checkout!
Now excuse me while I go smoke a cigarette and drink a glass of wine since thinking about this book….
You can buy this in eBook and Audio Book
