A Place of Refuge, three science fiction hopepunk novellas following three former guerillas who’ve escaped to a utopian planet after losing their fight against a fascist empire. They’re figuring out how to live a life that’s not focused on the constant fear of death, with the aid of pastries, therapy, and other people.

My favorite review of The Moonlight Mistress, by George Simmers at Great War Fiction. “While reading the book, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the sporting novels of Nat Gould, the favourite writer of the average Great War Tommy. Gould’s books are essentially adventure stories interrupted every few chapters by the description of an energetic and exciting horse-race. Victoria Janssen’s novel follows a similar pattern, except that instead of horse-racing the narrative is punctuated by lively and explicit accounts of sexual encounters…The author has clearly done some thorough background reading, and I did not spot any glaring historical howlers (though I suspect that by late 1914 moving from France to Germany and back would be less easy than the novel suggests, even before the trench system stretched from the coast to the Alps). Younger readers should be aware, however, that the book’s account of the war is not to be relied on as entirely historically accurate (none of the official records of combatant nations mention werewolves, so far as I am know).”
THE DUKE AND THE PIRATE QUEEN
Aboard her privateering ship, Seaflower, Captain Imena Leung is the law. Ashore she answers only to her liege, Duke Maxime. They are a powerful couple, with an intense attraction neither can disguise nor deny. As a nobleman, Maxime is destined to wed strategically, so his seductive advances must be purely for pleasure. And what self-respecting pirate denies herself any pleasure?
Their delicious dalliance is prolonged when Imena is forced to abduct Maxime to thwart a political plot against him. At sea, with a stunningly virile man bound and held in her private quarters, Imena can imagine—and enact—any number of intoxicating scenarios.
The heat between captain and captive is matched only by the perils that beset The Seaflower and her crew. Violent storms, marauding corsairs and life-or-death sex games on a desert island—how fortunate for the seemingly insatiable lovers that danger and desire go hand-in-hand. >> Read excerpt| Read Fabricating the World
Nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Award!
It is the eve of the Great War, and English chemist Lucilla Osbourne finds herself trapped on hostile German soil. Panicked and alone, she turns to a Frenchman she barely knows for shelter. Together they spend a night of intense passion, but their dangerous circumstances won’t allow more than a brief affair.
Even with the memory of Lucilla ever-present, scientist Pascal Fournier is distracted by his reason for being in enemy territory—Tanneken Claes has information Pascal could use against the enemy but, even more extraordinary…she’s a werewolf.
After entrusting Pascal with her secret, Tanneken and a British officer are captured. Suspecting a rogue scientist rumored to have a fascination with werewolves is behind the abduction, Pascal knows he must act quickly to save them. He’s all too aware of Professor Kauz’s reputed perversions and lust for control.
As war rages, Pascal and Lucilla combine efforts to stop Kauz, struggling with danger, power and secret desires.

The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover
Wretched be the woman of wealth and fortune who fails to produce a suitable heir….
And wretched is what Duchess Camille feels living with the cruel and debauched duke. But that soon turns to desperation when she learns her lecherous husband is plotting to have her killed to make way for a more nubile and fertile companion. Knowing she cannot sit idly by and wait for death, she flees into the night, taking with her her own young lover—the stable hand Henri—and her most loyal servants.
With a mind to finding refuge with Maxime, her first love who years ago ignited her sexuality, Camille and her servants take cover in brothels along the way and succumb to the physical delights on offer, sating their longings and fueling jealousies with one another. But the duke’s men are not far behind, and Camille knows they must press on, hoping against hope that the man who has every reason to turn her away will remember the fervent passion that once coursed between them.… >>Read Excerpt.
