The Romance Reviews loved Little Dove!


I’m so happy that The Romance Reviews enjoyed Little Dove. Here’s some of the review:

Rating: 4 Stars!

I found the story to be well-written and sexy. The love scene was exciting with some light bondage, light anal play and some play with a willow.

Read the rest of the review.

Lila’s friend claims that submitting to a Dom in bed is a wonderful stress-reliever, but Lila is skeptical. So when she opens the door and finds her old crush Theo waiting on the other side, she doesn’t know what to do. Since he fails to recognize her, she lets him in, accepting his offer to help her relax.

After he explains that Abby sent him, Lila reconsiders her misgivings about dominant men. When Theo ties her up and woos her with origami doves, she reconsiders her fear of letting go. When he makes love to her, she learns to fly.

Be Warned: light BDSM, sex toys, spanking with willow switch

Who loves Little Dove?


I know this is a short and sweet little story, albeit short and sweet with a willow switch and scarves and origami in delicate places, but it’s one of my favorites that I’ve written. I’m pretty excited that readers are enjoying it.


Midnight Magic Reviews gave it 5 Midnight Magic Girls!

“Ooooh, how naughty! Little Dove is an exciting erotic escape. Ms. Leaf does a wonderful job with a few heated pages (I believe it was a little over thirty). But even though it’s short, it’s full of submission, trust, and origami doves… who could ask for more? Spend a late night with this tingling story, you won’t be sorry!”

Not Now… Mommy’s Reading gave it 5 Tubs!

“The characters were so well done, thought out and perfect that I could have known them for all my life. I was able to really see into their lives instead of just “reading about it.” I was able to feel Lila’s emotion, her fear about trusting Theo, then the heat and passion once she finally said yes. The author did a fantastic job with the details in this story.  I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves minor BDSM and romances.”

I’m talking about my new release over at USA Today–>Erin Leaf: Trust, love and … origami?

Love is a little like that. You begin with almost nothing (a flat piece of paper, a 17-year-old girl, bare feet) and fold until you’ve created something lovely.

From a short story I finished late Friday called Little Dove, which has already been accepted for publication! BDSM-lite, origami, and scarves:

He tore off a sheet and measured a perfect square, creasing and tearing until it was exact. Quickly, he folded it in half, then in half again. His fingers knew exactly what to do—he’d folded this origami bird a hundred times. When he had a perfect dove, he lifted it up so she could see it.

“It’s a bird,” she breathed.

He nodded, running the point of the dove’s beak over her jaw.
