New Lovers: Trilogy No. 1 is an ebook collection of three erotic novellas published by Badlands Unlimited. Inspired by Maurice Girodias’ legendary Olympia Press, New Lovers features the raw and uncut writings of authors new to the erotica genre. Each story has its own unique take on relationships, intimacy, and sex, as well as the complexities that bedevil contemporary life and culture today. Each novella in the New Lovers series is an independent story of about 12,000-18,000 words in length. This collection includes:

How To Train Your Virgin by Wednesday Black The queen of a mythical realm realizes that her king now prefers the bodies of inexperienced human virgins to her own. His insatiable appetite threatens the kingdom and everything the queen holds dear. She plots to seduce and deflower the two humans the king favors, but her plans backfire in spectacular fashion. What will become of her marriage? Her kingdom? Her virgins?

We Love Lucy by Lilith Wes On the night of her 30th birthday, Lucy’s best friend Nicholas gives her just what she’s always wanted—the chance to watch him and his handsome boyfriend James get it on in the flesh. But what happens when Nicholas’ gift merely whets her appetite? When a feast for the eyes leaves her heart and body famished, how far will Lucy go to satisfy her hunger? And what will it mean for their friendship?

God, I Don’t Even Know Your Name by Andrea McGinty Eva is a hot mess. When her promising art career in New York takes a plunge, she enters rehab and finds sobriety—but not peace of mind. She escapes to Europe and loses herself in one hook up after another using Bangly, the newest dating app. She meets a run-of-the-mill Finnish curator and thinks it’s love. Or is it just wanderlust?
