Another pair of short stories in Secret Narrative’s Short, Provocative Erotica series. Do not read if you're just after some hot sex action. This is erotica of a different order. Previously published separately as ‘Nerium Oleander: Toxic Heart’ and ‘The Decision Tree,’ please check the sample before purchase.

The Decision Tree is like that first glass of champagne. It slips down like nectar; your tongue will waggle down the glass anxious for more. The story of a nice woman's dissolving relationship with a nasty man, the writing lyrical, the pace sensuous, the narrative as bubbly as Moet & Chandon.

Nerium Oleander: Toxic in all its parts, the beautiful Oleander, Nerium Oleander, is considered by many to be the most poisonous plant in the world. Two of the most potent poisons are oleandrin and neriine, known for their powerful effect on the heart. A short story that delves with compelling authenticity into a mind poisoned by lust and driven to acts of compulsion and obsession. If you are looking for something hot and heavy to titillate then this probably isn't the book for you, but if you are in the market for a tale that will stay with you long after you've put it down, then Nerium could be what you’re looking for.

Warning: A pair of short stories unsuitable for readers under the age of 18.
