Elaine Raco Chase


If you like sassy, laugh out loud, contemporary romances - some more explicit than others - you have found the right author!

Reviewers have called them: "cat & mouse" - "slow burn" - "hot and steamy" - "highly addicting" - "solid characters & lots of humor" - "amazing reads!"

I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren't looking for a man - until the right one comes along!

And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don't know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

I also write erotic mystery/thriller's and the Agatha Christie nominated non-fiction "How to write the Amateur Detective Novel" which is in the FBI Forensic Library at Quantico.

  • Cooking Class on May 14, 2011

    Wow..this is a searing page turner...glad the a/c was on! Characters were great, erotica was fabulous, dialogue was wonderful...will definitely buy more from this author.
  • Wives Awakened on Sep. 01, 2012

    The pond is boiling! The six erotic short stories are quite different in the fact everyone is mature (no dithering "holy crap" twenty something's here thank God!), the couples awaken their deepest, hidden fantasies. The writing is evocative, enjoyable and adult - all are fun, highly erotic reads. And I agree with the other reviewers - perfect for a bedtime story for two or more, if you are so inclined.
