Ruby Pink lives in a small town in Washingon state, where she spends her days writing steamy romance. She loves reading erotica but gets frustrated that so many feature shallow women with no agency. She took up the pen to bring us tales of smart, talented ladies who aren’t just props in male fantasies.
In Seven Minutes in Heaven, author Ruby Pink brings you 22 short, smart and saucy stories about women who know what they want. In “Teacher’s Pets,” you’ll meet the college professor who allows her students to seduce her for a better grade. In “Crowded Train,” two passengers get much closer than expected on the bumpy commute home from work. The “Winning the Bet” stories bring you two coworkers fumbling and groping their way into a relationship. You’ll meet a ghost hunter who’s willing to do whatever it takes to provoke a supernatural encounter. A tense mother who needs some physical therapy. A waitress eager to reunite with her chef. And many more.
Some stories are about couples, some about coworkers, and some about strangers. Some are sweet and loving, some are lusty and passionate. Some are written from a male perspective, but they’re all about women with their own motivations.

She just needed to ask Paul for a Christmas present — something with broad shoulders…
