The Exotic Mermaid
By: Leonora Raye
About the Book
Kimberly loves her job as an exotic dancer, but that was when she started pole dancing over a year ago at the “Hearts on Fire” club in Houston, Texas. Now the darker side of her glamorous career is pulling her down into a dissatisfied funk. When green slime starts seeping through the walls, and an accident lands her friend and fellow pole dancer in the hospital, the pressure mounts until Kimberly tries to get away from it all with a weekend in Galveston.
But things get even more bizarre until she faces herself and makes some life-changing decisions.
