Flashback: Strokes (Contest–3 Winners!)
Tuesday, November 7th, 2023

UPDATE: The winners are…Laura, Stephanie, and ButtonsMom!

I’ve written a ton of short stories over the years, and every now and then, I bundle them together into a box set/anthology. So far, I have Strokes, Strokes, Volume 2, Strokes, Volume 3, and Ultra Strokes. As you might guess from the titles, these aren’t vanilla stories, so be warned!

The first three are seven-story collections, meant to give you a week’s worth of nighttime fun. Ultra is a compilation of my favorites, plus a couple of ones not already seen in the other anthologies. If you happen to love short stories, be sure to visit my short story page: Short Stories. Some of these stories have appeared in Cleis Press anthologies, some in my own “Collection” anthologies. Two (or was it three?) were featured in Penthouse magazine. I’ve published 51 stories in all, and three more are on the way when I have time. It’s time, I think, to do another seven-story bundle. I have plenty to fill it with ones not already bundled. Two more, actually. *sigh* I wish there were more hours in the day.

In the meantime, check out the volumes. Check out the short story page to read excerpts. Or just head straight to the bottom of this blog and answer my question for a chance to win! Happy Tuesday, by the way!


From National Bestselling Author, Delilah Devlin, comes a naughty collection of seven bedtime stories for a week’s worth of nighttime reading pleasure — a little “som-som” to inspire sexy dreams or a one-handed orgasm, or to be read to a partner and enjoyed together.

Witness one woman’s desperate attempt to seduce her busy husband in “Lily’s Last Stand”. In “Nip ‘n’ Tuck” follow a shy seamstress’s adventures with an online suitor that doesn’t go quite as planned. Dive into “Dreaming by the Sea” where a woman with a mysterious past is surprised by a lover who strides naked from the ocean to claim her. An adventurous Victorian nurse learns the pleasures of steam-driven technology in “Dr.Mullaley’s Cure”. A New York commuter shares lustful daydreams with another subway passenger in “The Morning Ride”.  A woman finds the limits of her inhibitions tested in a one-night stand in “All About Me”. In “The Obedient Wife”, find out what really happened between The Beauty and the Beast. Hint: It’s not your children’s fairytale!


Comment for a chance to win your choice of a download of one of my Strokes volumes, your choice! Tell me whether you’re a fan of short stories and whether you’d like to see more sexy compilations like this one! I’ll choose three lucky winners!

    This is awesome. Are the Stokes books in paperback? I would like to get them for my Delilah Devlin shelf.

    Sometimes a short story is all you have time for and it hits the spot 😁

    I love short stories! I have all of the stories included in your Strokes collections except one. Somehow I’m missing Quick Draw which is in Strokes Vol. 2. I have said it for a long time: you are the queen of M/F short stories! 🥰b

    I read mostly medium length stories but I love to mix in short stories in between.

    I do enjoy short stories if they finish up in the same story. Do not like the ones that you have to read all the stories to finish the story.
