Once Upon a Time…
Welcome to 1001 Dark Nights… a collection of novellas that are breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic. Some are paranormal, some are contemporary. Each and every one is compelling and page turning.
Inspired by the exotic tales of The Arabian Nights, 1001 Dark Nights features New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
In the original, Scheherazade desperately attempts to entertain her husband, the King of Persia, with nightly stories so that he will postpone her execution.
In our versions, month after month, each of our fabulous authors puts a unique spin on the premise and creates a tale that a new Scheherazade tells long into the dark, dark night.
…Happily Ever After
The Open Door
(A Found Duet Novella)
by Laurelin Paige
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laurelin Paige comes a new story in her Found Duet series…
I knew JC was trouble the minute I laid eyes on him.
Breaking every rule in my club. I never forget how he made me feel that night. With all the women in that room, all those bodies on display, but his eyes were only on me.
Of course I married him. Now years have passed. Kids have been born. We’re still in love as always, and the sex is still fantastic…
And yet, it’s also not. Like many who’ve been married for a while, I long for the high intensity of those days of the past.
I’ve heard rumors for years about the Open Door. An ultra-exclusive voyeur’s paradise. A place to participate in—or watch—any kind of display you can imagine.
My husband’s eyes would still be on me. And maybe other eyes too. If that’s what we want.
So when an invitation to come play arrives, how could we turn it down?

An Exclusive Interview With Laurelin Paige:
~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog
Oh, how I loved this story. How did you decide to continue JC and Gwen’s story in this novella?
When I was writing Fixed Forever, I had a little subplot with the two of them getting invited to an exclusive sex party, and it was so fun imagining what that would be like for them, I just had to write more about it. I especially liked the idea of exploring a married couple that had no conflict between them except their busy lives. It’s definitely something I personally identify with.
I loved your dedication for this book so freaking hard! What’s one small piece of advice can you give folks to keep a happy marriage?
Communication. It’s when my husband and I stop talking to each other that our relationship sours. I’m not just talking about telling your spouse things he needs to know, but also the stupid things. Share what’s going on in your lives so that you’re still engaged with each other, even if you aren’t spending as much time together as you’d like.
If you could choose a theme song for this book, what would it be?
Just one? I have a whole playlist on Spotify.
