Hotaru never expected to be the target of an evil yōkai. After her husband dies, the beautiful widow returns to the countryside to live with her brother, only to find herself forced into servitude by her cruel sister-in-law. Hotaru thought her life was over until the night the mysterious Man in the Fox Mask came to her. Then nothing was ever the same again! "Come by Night" is the first novella in a saucy new series exploring Japanese folklore and eroticism. Will the fiendish Demon Fox lure poor Hotaru into his seductive clutches? Or does she have the strength to resist the incubus's charm? Succumb to a floating world where pleasure and taboo are inseparable, and let the games of lust begin! 🍃 Greetings, Gentle Readers! Welcome to this fun adjunct to my Supernatural Cyberpunk Thriller series "The Atlas Dystopia Apocalyptica." After a traumatic encounter with the star MC in "The Origin of the White Wind," one of my bit characters can't stop thinking about him! Kohaku is obsessed with the legendary creature she came face to face with that dark night, the beast who tore the heart from her lover. Yet the allure cannot be denied! To cope with her conflicting feelings of terror and raw lust, she writes these novellas. They become a runaway hit in 22nd Century Japan and will be mentioned in Book Three. So be prepared for the finest slice of cheese I can dish out in 1st person alternating - 'cuz I'm going for broke! I'm a man writing for a woman who is writing for both. Don't overthink it - this is a yōkai tale! 🏮👹🦊🔥🖤🌸🥀 Note: Chapters alternate view points between male and female leads. All images and content belong to Xander Cross.
