Alice After Hours, by Galia Ryan: A Strong Woman Follows her Fantasies
Alice After Hours (136 pp, , $11.95), is the latest erotic romance by Galia Ryan. What started as a steamy chatroom encounter soon becomes a tantalizing tug-of-war between professionally driven Alice, and the mysterious Archangel. Alice is usually the one in charge. This time she isn’t.
Alice once believed in love, but after her fiancé left her at the altar, she swore off commitment. Now she lives for work and casual flings, the less complicated the better, and she must be in charge. One evening Alice stumbles across an Internet chat room inhabited by submissives and dominants—women who believe that true fulfillment lies in total surrender and men eager to dictate the terms.
Archangel enters the chat room and lures Alice into a private conversation, one that throws her beliefs about female empowerment into doubt. In person he is even more enticing, inviting her to his home, but only if she is willing to put her fate in his hands. If Alice agrees to follow him down the rabbit hole, everything must proceed according to Archangel’s rules. At first she resists, but curiosity gets the better of her and soon she is at the point of no return. Will this strange adventure lead to misery, or happiness beyond her wildest dreams?
“Alice After Hours is a dominant woman taking a turn on the other side. Again, lots of character story as Alice explores submission with an interesting man she meets on the internet.… This felt like a real story happening to a real woman.” Read more….

—NaturalBri: Bri Wignall’s Reviews
“This story did a very nice job of depicting the gradual foray into a foreign world that challenges the heroine’s preconceptions and expands her sexual horizons. The sensual assault and gradual introduction to power exchange, uncomplicated by a focus on BDSM, is artfully described and the reader is drawn along on this woman’s journey. As with the other story I have read by this author, I enjoyed the smoothly flowing prose and the nicely evoked atmosphere…. This is definitely a very sensual story about one woman’s seduction into the submissive lifestyle.” Read more….

Says Ryan, “I know the corporate world from my own day job. Women who must compete in that world need to be tough and in charge. So I thought, what fun to take such a woman and throw her off-balance by putting her fate in the hands of the ultimate alpha male? This is really an erotic Alice in Wonderland story, with Alice entering a totally foreign world of fantasy that I hope will be great fun for my readers as well.”
Convent-educated from the age of four, Galia Ryan was brought up not to question. Perhaps because of this, she has always been fascinated by all things esoteric and “outside the square.” Originally from Sussex, England, and now living in New Zealand with her soul-mate husband and grown-up family, Galia tries to find time between her passions for writing and reading and for her other love—travel. There is always a growing list of must-see places. Galia is the author of the Luxuria Trilogy—Choices, Secrets, and Desires—and two novellas, Forsaking All Others and The Outsider. Click here.
