The Collapse changed everything. Good men became killers. Strong women became property. And every day turned into a fight for survival.
I once dreamed of becoming a nurse. That dream went up in flames the same day I graduated nursing school, when women were banned from holding any kind of medical license.
Now as an unlicensed medic, I travel what was once the southwestern United States, trading medical services for food, transportation, and shelter with the hopes of reaching Canada.
Because the United States is no more. And the lawless land that’s replaced it is a deadly place for a woman.
My worst fear comes true when I’m captured by the Steel Demons MC, the most ruthless biker gang in the Southwest. These men thrive on the violence and chaos brought on by the Collapse, and they’re eager to unleash it all on me.
It doesn’t even matter that the President’s dog likes me. I’m as good as dead.

I am an experiment, data to be collected, nothing but a number.
At least that was how my life had been until I was rescued by the most unlikely group of men.
Rescued might be too strong a word though.
The men of the Immortal Hunters Motorcycle Club aren’t exactly friendly. And when I find myself locked in a cage, yet again, I begin to question their intentions. They aren’t a regular MC though. Yes, they are heartless, merciless, violent, chaotic… but it’s all in the name of saving humans from supernaturals.
These men are tortured, each one stuck living with the demons of their pasts, and some of the sexiest men I’ve ever seen. Even if they are a little psychotic.
I can’t get attached though. Not when my life is on the line. And definitely not when I find out that I might be more dangerous than all of them combined.

I ran away from my abusive home on my eighteenth birthday and never looked back. Working at the traveling carnival is my chance for escape, for joy and independence. Or so I thought.
But there’s more to this circus than I expected. Monsters lurk in the shadows. Those with fangs and claws, and the men who profit from trafficking them.
Shifters are real, and they’re people who need my help. The lone wolf protecting his pups. The tattooed dragon with a wicked tongue. And the prickly tiger who keeps me at arm’s length.
Captured and exploited, they’re furious at being paraded as circus attractions. They might be monsters, but they’re also men. My men. Together, we must stop the shifter trade for good.
I may not have fangs or claws, but it turns out I have magic of my own. And I’m not afraid to use it.
Because these monsters? They’re all mine.
Harem of Freaks is a complete paranormal reverse harem series with adult scenes, including M/M content.
A CURSE BROKEN, A BLOODLINE FAILED… Some might know her as a moody bitch. Which is understandable. Daria Locke earned that title when her mother died and passed down the maternal legacy—Pandora’s box. She puts a new meaning to split personality disorder. It’s hard enough starting the day without coffee, never mind creation’s most dangerous secrets whispering in her ear. That’s right, the box is no longer a real box. Hasn’t been for centuries. Instead, the demons once trapped in darkness now live inside Daria, listening to her every thought, seeing her every action. So, yes. You could say she’s pretty close with Hope, Betrayal, Truth, Misery and Death. When ancient hunters discover her secret and let the deadly cats out of the bag, will she be able to corral five demons with the ultimate case of cabin fever? On top of wrangling the world’s worst behaved man-children, Daria has to fight for her life as an ancient foe rises to bring destruction to the Earth. Can she keep the family secrets safe? Or will the enemy turn her lovers against her and bring chaos to the world on an apocalyptic scale? …CHAOS WILL REIGN.

The Shifting Fate Series
It was supposed to be a fresh start. A completely blank slate in a place where no one knew about the tragedy that ripped her family apart six months ago. A tragedy Rowan can’t help but blame herself for.
Now the only thing she wants is to blend in. To escape the house that has become more like a prison. Her new school is her only hope. Somewhere she can pretend she’s just like everyone else.
Only Rowan doesn’t realize how unique she is. Holden is the first to recognize it, but he’s not the last.
Rowan can’t explain the draw she feels to the guys who have found their way into her life. The way something seems to spark the first moment she touches each of them. How it almost hurts to walk away from them at the end of each day.
Things are changing, from the ripple of power humming just below her skin to this new family she’s finding herself a part of. But not all of the changes are good.
Someone doesn’t like the power Rowan is stepping into or the bonds she’s forming with the guys who have gifts as rare and strong as her own. And when the truth is revealed, it has the power to burn everything in its wake…

The Ghost Girl Series
I’d love to tell you how I got stuck in a house in the middle of Nowhereville, Illinois. Or how many years I’ve spent with no memory of the person I used to be. But I can’t. Those details are locked down tight inside the chaos of my mind, and I don’t have the key.The only thing I do know – I’m dead. Major bummer, right?I spend my days doing what I do best – scaring off anyone who steps foot inside my house. Of course, ghost girls can’t own houses, but that’s beside the point. A girl’s got a rep to maintain, and after a close call a while back, I’ve had to step up my game. This ghost girl doesn’t want to be exorcised anytime soon. Just when my unlife is getting increasingly dull, a team of hot paranormal researchers shows up to investigate the cause of all the unusual activity. Now I don’t know whether I should bust out my normal bag of tricks or take a chance on making my presence known in other, potentially naughty, ways. Don’t judge. Ghost girls have needs too, ya know, and mine have gone unmet for way too long. Cole, Knox, Macklin, Thad & Levi might have just gotten more than they bargained for – namely, me – but this feels like so much more than insta-lust. With every encounter, this sense of familiarity just won’t leave me the hell alone. Who are they? Who am I? In the end, maybe I’ll finally know the truth, and the guys might just get something they didn’t even know they were missing.
This is a medium-burn, why choose trilogy. The FMC will have a HEA with all of her guys by book three.

Disaster Zone Jones
Tornados, sinkholes, lightning strikes, explosions, a drain pipe full of bees… I’ve been there though them all. But it’s not my fault!
My “Dizzy, time to get the heck out of dodge” senses are well-honed, so can you blame a gal for pounding pavement when a herd of hunks are hot on her trail?
Okay, maybe you can. Maybe it’s your dream to get tackled by a heaping helping of beefcake; hopelessly pinned beneath them, at the mercy of multiple sets of hands and lips and eyes trapping you and demanding attention. Me? I just want to make it through the day without doing too much damage.
Seriously, it’s not my fault!
You see, I’m cursed to always be cursed. Somebody wants to get revenge on you when I’m in town? Well TOUGH LUCK because they’re getting revenge on me instead! Thank you for that weekend of all-foods-are-extra-spicy, unknown stranger. No, that’s okay, person-who-tried-to-make-someone-else-unable-to-wear-clothes-ever-again, I don’t mind a fine breeze between my lady bits. And to you, asshole casserole who tried to literally kill me last week? Well… you can get bent. That’s honestly just rude.
Usually my curse comes with a side of disaster, and after really, really hurting more than one person… well… I’ve been on a never-ending, cross-country, don’t-look-back-just-keep-on-running-away tour for pretty much forever. Sure, it’s lonely, but never setting down roots means never getting caught, or killed. At least I’ve got my furry best friend Aria-don’t know what I’d do without her.
Per usual, my hotel just happened to burn down this morning so it looks like I’d best get to gettin’ while the gettin’s still good, ya get it? Just one itsy-bitsy-teensie-weensie-purple-haired-and-no-bikini problem…. I may have accidentally sort of kind of tied myself to those hunks I mentioned earlier and may or may not literally be unable to go anywhere without at least one of them. Oops! And maybe I sort of kind of like them enough to not want them to get murdered in my superstorm of chaos. Double oops.
Sigh. Friggin’ Tuesdays, am I right?

The Yaga’s Riders
As with most beginnings, it started with death.
When I had nothing left to lose, I traveled to the hut in the woods; the one no one dared approach. The witch who lived there recognized the darkness in my soul and took me under her wing—to witness her reign of terror firsthand and eventually, to inherit her legacy as my own.
Now I’m the monster they fear; the one humans avoid at all costs. In this welcome isolation, I’ve attempted to forget my past and the future that was taken from me.
Until three men appear, somehow able to break through my protective wards and see me in my true form. While resistant to their intrusion, I recognize they may be the ones I’ve been waiting for—the ones I need to ascend to my full power.
Too bad I would rather grind their bones than invite them in.
But something is mysteriously devouring the forest, and I suspect the threat may be the same one I barely escaped many moons ago. If it is, he will find me a more worthy opponent than the last time we met.
I am the Yaga and I may be broken, but my edges are sharp.
The Yaga’s Riders is based on the folklore of Baba Yaga, with creative liberties taken.

“Friends are like condoms. They protect you when things get hard.”
That’s what my five drool-worthy male best friends said when we were younger. But that was before we found out our souls were fated and that we were destined for more.
I don’t know if there’s a condom out there that’s strong enough to protect us from what’s coming our way now.
In the midst of natural disasters wreaking havoc on earth, we must claw our way out of the pit of grief we find ourselves in after a tragic loss, because another realm is counting on us to save it from a great evil.
The same evil that apparently killed us in a previous life, and is lurking closely in the shadows of this one.
Welcome to the disaster that is my life. Grab a seat and buckle up. Because no way am I letting us die in this life.
Author Note: Desolation is a novel that touches on some dark themes such as molestation at a young age and rape which may be triggering for some readers. This book has a 18+ warning.
Don’t summon demons drunk… How is that not the number one piece of advice in demonology textbooks?
Now I have a dead boss, a detective determined to pin me for the murder, and a vindictive demon trapped inside of a cat’s body is currently living in my bathtub.
Trying to prove my innocence while also dealing with some issues with an ex and his stupidly attractive fae friend isn’t proving a walk in the park either, but nothing is ever easy for a witch cursed with bad luck.
White magic can’t save me. Black magic will taint my soul. So what’s an unlucky witch like me to do?
-Urban Fantasy Reverse Harem-
The Vampire House War
One taste, and I’d never be the same…
I run a highly successful restaurant. I’m part of the local wolf pack. I work out. I date. I have friends. My life looks, and sounds perfect.
But once a month I leave it all behind, and run to him. Except, the minute I leave, the only thing I remember is the desperation that drives me back to his arms, time and time again.
My brother doesn’t know what I do, or where I go. He knows some of my secrets but not to the full extent. Lydia does, but Gray doesn’t know about Lydia. It’s a mess.
When I’m drawn into the world of the vampires, where four Houses rule everything, I quickly discover their world is not all it seems. It’s dark, and gory, fraught with complex relationships, and vengeful games that span years.
I have to lean on someone. Although I’m pretty sure I won’t survive them. It’s not my war to fight, but my heart will be its first casualty. My name is Faryn, and this is my story.
The Bitten Wolf is the first book in The Vampire House War. It is a fast, spicy read and our leading lady will not be forced into choosing who she gives her love to. She’ll probably be keeping them all. The vampires are a bloodthirsty and petty lot, so there’s plenty of blood and violence, trigger warning also includes stalking and deception.
The Vampire House War and is a shared universe with Cedar Mountain but this is all about the VAMPIRES. There is a crossover of characters but the MC focus is very different.
Well, I’m a wife and Mum, ex-high school teacher, with a boy-child as well as 3 fur-babies. I’m Australian, but moved over to the UK back in 2015 due to my hubby’s work (he’s British, although we met and married in Australia). I’ve lived up and down the east coast of Australia, and love to travel. I’ve been to every state (except for Western Australia) back home, have visited both islands of New Zealand, and have travelled to South Korea, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Eire (Republic of Ireland). I’m the youngest of 3 girls, am a natural red-head, a typical Sagittarius and a typical Goat/Ram/Sheep (Chinese Zodiac), and I have absolutely *no* filter. I love reading, coffee, wine, reading, baking, sleeping, reading, writing, watching movies, and did I mention reading?
Have you always wanted to become an author?
In some shape or form, yes. I would love to write stories as a child, and my sisters and I would often make up our own little skits and stories and perform them. I wrote poetry and short stories as a teen, and have had several published in various places. I also wrote a blog when I first moved to the UK.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
A dream. Quite a few of the stories I’ve written or have in my ‘to be written’ pile are from dreams I’ve had. It came to me about 2 years ago, when there were a lot of the RH Academy/Bully books being written. I love shifters, always have, and I wanted to put my own twist on things – the characters are all adults (even if only by a year or so), there is a fated-mate rejection, and it’s a reverse-harem. Unfortunately for me, the book I was working on at that point in time (‘Disconnect’) wouldn’t let me write anything that wasn’t related to it. I wasn’t able to start writing my ‘Altered Shifters Universe’ books until August of last year.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on 2 projects at the moment. I’m going through the final edits for ‘Altered: Part Two’, in the hopes I can release it in May – it’s currently scheduled for a May 1st release, but I might need to push it back depending on how much work it needs. I’m also writing the first draft for ‘Mythic’, which was *supposed* to be the second book in that interlinked universe, but then ‘Altered’ was split into a duet rather than a standalone.
Do you have any quirks while working?
Music and coffee. I have several rather large mugs that I will guzzle from as I write, and I also have a pair of Razer Kraken (Kitty Edition) headphones that I wear while writing. They light up. I create a playlist for each major book/series I write, and at the moment, my Spotify playlist for my ‘Altered Shifters Universe’ has around 180 songs on it. Probably closer to 200, if I’m honest. I will zone out completely, and get *very* irritated if I’m interrupted, although I will stop fairly frequently for coffee and toilet breaks.
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope to be able to continue writing. I also hope that more people will find and enjoy my stories. I’d *love* to attend one of the big book events as an author, rather than as an attendeee, but at the same time, I don’t know if I’d ever be considered good enough to be invited. It’s a dream, a nice dream, but (at least in my mind) unlikely to be anything more than that. I’d also love for one of my books/series to be picked up and gushed over by Ruby Dixon, Tiffany Roberts, Lillian Lark, Tate James, or a number of other authors I admire. Their opinion matters to readers, and if they comment on a book’s readability/enjoyment on their platforms, then that book is likely to see a spike in interest. Oh, and if I can get one of those mythical orange banners on Amazon, or even hit the NYT best-seller list, that would be a miracle, lol…
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Find your people. Find other authors who are like you, and support and uplift each other. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT compare your journey to theirs, and vice versa. Encourage, uplift, share resources, leave reviews, promote yourself and each other. I was lucky enough to stumble on a wonderful group of authors who have encouraged, uplifted, advised, critiqued, sympathised, and just loved me for being me. There are enough haters out there who will try to tear you down (and unfortunately, some of them may even be other authors), but if you find your people, lick them. Slobber all over them and make them yours. Also, not every negative comment is meant in a destructive way. Constructive criticism, while pointing out your mistakes/flaws, is meant to help you grow as a writer. Don’t just focus on the negative comments, look for that silver lining that a lot (but not all) will be trying to push. If you open yourself up to *constructive* criticism, and actually *listen* to the feedback and positive information someone is trying to impart, you’ll find yourself growing as an author. My books would be a lot crappier if I had ignored the constructive criticism I received when I first wrote them.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Thank you. From the dark and depraved depths of my black and shrivelled little soul, thank you. Without you, without my readers, without all of your support, I’d still be sitting there wondering if I’d ever get around to publishing that book. So thank you.
Please give a warm welcome to author Melissa Adams
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m a former flight attendant from the UK, now turned full time author. I’m UK based but I lived in the US for a number of years with my American husband. We decided to come back to Europe 7 years ago because we enjoy the more laid back lifestyle here. I speak 4 languages and I love dogs, especially Yorkshire terriers.
What has happened work wise since our last interview? I became a USA Today bestselling author.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
My husband! My next release is The Sergeant, book 2 of my RH military stepbrother series and all I know about the US military and living in a US military installation comes from direct experience.
What are you working on now?
I’m about to finish writing The Heartbreakers, book 1 of a brand new RH extreme sports series. It’s really, really, really steamy. But there’s a plot that centers on unrequited love, legacy and revenge.
Do you have any quirks while working?
I need complete silence. And I type all my books on my iPad Pro without a keyboard. I prefer tapping on the screen, it’s easier on my wrists.
What are your hopes for the future?
To be able to continue to write full time and to see not hundreds but thousands of reviews on my books. A huge dream would be to have a movie or TV show based on one of my series (a girl can dream lol)
What have you learned about publishing since our first interview?
I’ve embraced the steamier side of romance. I’m no longer embarrassed to write a sex scene, they’re actually my favorite, but they are important for my stories, they aren’t just smut inserted in the story for the sake of it.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Thank you for reading my books, follow me on social media, and if you love my books, please consider leaving a review, it really helps.
I’m USA Today Best Selling Author, J.A. Roles, from Manchester, UK.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve loved writing ever since I can remember. I’d always sit and write in journals and notepads every chance I got. So, yes I’ve always wanted to be an author.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I was driving across the moors (hills full of myth and legend) just outside of Manchester when I was hit by a flood of inspiration, and so my Pennine Prophecies series was born.
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on the sequel to my debut vampire novel “The Awakening”. It also has three spin-offs for the rehabilitation centres for each supernatural creature, known as Institutes. The Shadow Institute for rogue vampires is titled, Beyond The Shadows. Lunar Institute is for werewolves to learn restraint. And the Institute of Leather Jackets for misbehaving witches and warlocks.
Do you have any quirks while working?
One thing I never do is plan. I let my characters guide me… so even I don’t know what shenanigans they’ll get up to next.
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope to expand the series and keep creating a world readers will love.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
To keep writing and never give up.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
I’m grateful to all of my readers for giving my books a chance and leaving amazing reviews. It means more than they know.

My true name is Rayner Ye, and I’ve been writing portal space fantasy and space opera for six years and publishing for four. I have been spending more on advertising than what I’ve been making, and even then, my space opera sales are dire. I think self-published space opera has to be written to market to succeed. That means spaceships, military procedures, characters from planet Earth going into space, etc.
My universe doesn’t even include planet Earth. It comprises seven solar systems. Its like magic realism, though what’s real for the citizens of the Plan8 Alliance is not real for Earthlings–because it’s futuristic with different races and religions, etc. But there are amethyst pyramids. They are time portals. Only a select few know. The rivers which well under the portals allow people to shapeshift, teleport, and body-snatch at the speed of thought. Again, only those who know the technique know this. That’s where the portal fantasy and shapeshifting come from.
Space Opera is obviously the wrong niche for this. If I had a good traditional publisher, I might get away with it. As an indie author, I don’t think so. I wrote YuFu’s Run and Cyborg Assassin to market. It’s kind of hard to sell, especially being a woman. Let’s face it. There’s a lot of sexism in science and sci-fi. I changed my face via a gender-changing app to pretend I was a man on my author profile, but it felt wrong.
Then I heard about reverse harem and how Science Fantasy authors can get away with writing a mishmash of sci-fi and fantasy sub-genres, as long as the FMC gets her harem of faithful lovers by the end of the series and there’s a happy-ever-after-ending. I thought it was worth a go, and I was curious about writing sex and romance. I decided to bring my universe over to my pen name, River Star, and then I wrote Princess Celesti.
It’s a Space Fantasy and Time Travel Reverse Harem Romance. There’s galactic empire, shifting (not in the usual paranormal sense,) futuristic sci-fi, and lots more sub-genres. Book 1 and 2 flopped when I published them, last year. I was working on advertising my space opera, at the same time, and following a silly low bid strategy, which was wasting two valuable hours a day. I have two kids so wasn’t getting much writing and dictating done compared to before.
I unpublished the two books, added more povs from villains, and decided to quick release the series in March and April 2022. That’s what I’m doing now. The entire series is on pre-order. Fingers crossed. We’ll see.
I don’t know where the whole idea of a lonely princess came from, but I liked the thought of having kinds and queens in my space fantasy for a change.
When I was four, my grandmother asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said an orphan. She asked me what an orphan did, and I said, “An orphan writes books.” That was the family joke. After my first degree, I travelled to New Zealand alone and wrote a book in a notepad. It was a fairy story for kids. I never got it published. However, the tree-people appear in a couple of my sci-fi series written under Rayner Ye. They’re genetically modified by an alien scientist to de-radiate a planet which was destroyed by a nuclear war.
For the last couple of months, my strategy has been to edit Princess Celesti 1-4 at the computer while the kids are at school, and then dictate Cyborg Assassin 2 by Rayner Ye while I walk to pick them up and walk back from their school drop off. It’s surprising how many words I can get in after even a ten-minute walk, let alone a half-hour walk. Once I’ve uploaded all of Princess Celesti 1, 2, 3, and 4 manuscripts and formatted the paperbacks, I’m going to edit Cyborg Assassin 2 while dictating Cyborg Assassin 3, written under my non-romance name, Rayner Ye. I still have a YuFu’s Run 5 manuscript to edit and release.
You know what, though? If I make any money of this reverse harem series, I’m going to write another and another and another. I might even stop writing under my real name. We’ll see. These are just dreams for now. My hope for the future is contribute financially towards my family through my writing and self publishing. My biggest dream would be to retire my husband. I’m so grateful to him for supporting me financially and emotionally through this arduous journey, like I did to him when we lived in China and South Korea. My advice for new writers is to write! There’s lots of other advice, but everyone is different, and every path is different.
