The Lost Sentinel series by Ivy Asher
My name is Vinna, and I’ve been keeping a lot of secrets.
You would too if you’d experienced some of the weird shit I have: red-eyed monsters chasing me, markings on my body appearing out of nowhere, a strange power that crackles colorfully over my skin from time to time, and don’t get me started on the weapons I can conjure up almost out of nowhere.
Lucky for me, I have yet to meet someone whose ass I couldn’t kick, inside the ring or out. I put that to the test when I run headfirst into a fight that brings all my secrets, and reality as I know it, crashing down around me.
Now, I’m looking for answers and trying to piece together what the hell is going on. Paranormal is my new way of life. It’s not going to be easy, and I’m not exactly welcome.
That is, until I meet the boys, and trust me, they are anything but boyish.
I’m up against elders who think I’m too powerful, a family who views me as a threat, and something lurking in the shadows that’s been coming for me my whole life.
There’s not a chance in hell I’m going down without a fight. I’m not lost anymore, and I’m about to show this world exactly what I can do.
One strong woman. Four hulking Fae Guardians. Even a dark secret that could destroy the world doesn’t stand a chance.
Paranormal detective Eve Carter knows things. She’s always had uncanny gut instincts. When a run of supernatural murders take place, Eve thinks she may be the only one who can save her once idyllic hometown from the dark threat.
What she doesn’t expect is four sexy Fae warriors to save her from a vampire attack. Or the mysterious bond that she feels with them.
Guardians Noah, Tyler, Jacob and Cole have spent centuries protecting the Fae, so when there is a breach of the veil between the realms, they are ordered to investigate the disturbance.
But what they find is shocking. A beautiful woman with the gift of the Fae . . . and a compelling desire to serve her every need.
Guardians of Magic is a full-length Reverse Harem Paranormal Fantasy Romance. Action-packed, steamy, and addictive, you’ll be glued to the pages until the last word.
I’ve always felt like I don’t belong, like the people who walk amongst me are merely figments of my imagination. Fading. Always fading.
When a psychic confirms my suspicions, there’s only one appropriate reaction…to laugh. Loud and boisterous, like a wolf howling at the moon.
Because what could be more ridiculous than being told I’m a queen? That I have 4 Viking warriors desperate for my return? That an entire kingdom will go up in flames and down in ash without my help? That a sister I have no recollection of is the one responsible?
Psychics aren’t to be believed. They’re all smokes and mirrors, that much I’ve always known. But what if she’s the exception to the rule? What if she’s right? Those are all logical questions, of course.
The problem is, she could be wrong.
Viking Queen is a reverse harem romance novel suitable for readers over eighteen.
Hell isn’t meant for humans, yet here I am, all up in fallen angel business.
I’ve been thieving for a long time and getting myself out of places where I’m not supposed to be. I’m good at it. It’s kind of all I have, except for my best friend Adam… and his dumb ass wandered right into hell itself when we were on an illegal dig in Thailand. Not so sure we’re going to be getting out of this one.
So yeah, fallen angels, hell, magic; all that shit is real. And of course we got ourselves captured. These fallen angels aren’t so easy to hide from. Lucifer’s sister tried to kill us—a minor inconvenience that didn’t belong in their world—but he protected me. There’s a bond between us I just can’t shake, and I’m pretty sure it’s the only reason I’m still alive.
I’m human. I’m not supposed to be here. Everyone knows what must be done… everyone except Lucifer.
This bond just keeps on growing, building power and need inside of me that might be Lucifer’s only hope… and that of his brothers.
Shit, I’m not getting out of this one, am I?
CHOSEN BY SHADOWS is a slow-burn reverse harem story and book 1 in the Original Demons series. As this is a series, only the relationship with Lucifer is developed in book 1. The other harem members and their relationships develop in book 2. Trust me, it’s worth the wait!
The Jewels Cafe series, is a collection of 12 reverse harem romances set in the same small town. Each book contains its own Happily Ever After. There’s paranormal romance and contemporary romance.
Being left behind to hold the fort every time the world needs saving, sucks.
Being a witch blood means access to magic, but Carmella Hunter can barely light a candle with her powers. She can bake the perfect cinnamon roll though, and the patrons of Piccadilly’s favourite bakery thank her for it. Still it would be nice to be the one doing the saving now and then.
You know what they say right? Be careful what you wish for…
One attack of flu germs, one delirious episode later and she’s bound to a djinn. A seductive, arrogant djinn who needs her help to track down the monsters hunting his people. With his power coursing through her veins, suddenly Carmella’s not so helpless anymore.
Maybe this partnership won’t be such a bad thing?
But someone doesn’t want her digging, someone will go to any lengths to make her stop.
Urban fantasy with djinn, dragon gods, magick and a heroine with heart.

Chronicles of Arcana series by Debbie Cassidy
If Buffy and Angel could have banged without him going all evil, then we would have had Wilomena Bastion.
Dragons suck, like literally suck the life out of you if you let them. Trick is not to look them directly in the eyes, like ever. So, the day Wila finds herself staring into the most dangerous Draconi’s pretty, emerald peepers, she knows she’s royally fucked.
No one said saving a bunch of kids from being served up as treats to the dragon liege was going to be easy. Options are limited—immediate execution or servitude, and Wila prefers to have her head remain firmly on her shoulders.
Now, the self-professed dark avenger must work to bring down a resistance of demons hell-bent on making life difficult for the dragon liege. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her new position comes with a partner, the dragon liege’s favoured demon enforcer; a creature of fire, fury and washboard abs who—let’s face it—is just gonna cramp her style.
With the help of a ghostly receptionist, a talking dog and the thing that lives in the basement, Wila will be forced to take on a most dangerous task. Add a dragon prince, a sexy troll blood and a billionaire mage into the mix, and things are about to get even more complicated. It looks like some serious brooding is on the menu, because for the first time in forever, Wila isn’t sure she’s up to the job.
A city filled with monsters needs a woman who can kick ass, and Wilomena Bastion is just the gal for the job.
When I was three-years-old, I was found homeless in the woods, alone and feral.
When asked how I survived all of those years by myself, I had one answer: the Shadow Man.
I have no memory of that time. No memory of anything, really, before the accident. I rely on stories from my fathers about this supposed imaginary friend.
Got into a fight at school? The Shadow Man made me. Stole from a store? He forced me to. Snuck out of the house? He came with me.
I had almost completely forgotten about him.
Until I move into the horror house – the house rumored to be a gateway to hell. Strange things keep happening, and I am helpless to prevent them.
More importantly, people keep dying.
Particularly, people that harm me.
It’s already a struggle to survive a new high school and town (including the attention of a dangerous gang), but now I have to survive ghosts too?
One thing becomes clear:
The Shadow Man wants me to come home.
This is a young adult, slow-burn, horror reverse harem romance.
Humans weren’t meant to live underground, but then artificial intelligences weren’t meant to feed on souls. Shit happens.
They say being a Potential is an honour. I say it’s a death sentence waiting to happen. It means the possibility of being picked to be a Guardian. It means leaving the safety of the Hive, and only a fool would willingly do that.
Turns out I’m surrounded by fools
Turns out I’m supposed to be one of them.
Monsters roam topside. Metal beasts that power themselves on human souls, and I don’t intend to end up as battery juice.
Being a hero means nothing if you’re too dead to enjoy it.
Better to stay safe in the Hive and hangout with my wolf-shifter co-worker or spend time with my enigmatic nephilim mentor. Heck, I’d rather be doing anything else then going topside. But I’ve made a promise to my best friend, a promise to get her to the finish line in time to win a spot as Guardian.
How hard can it be, right?
We have a plan.
So why do I feel as if something is about to go seriously wrong?
It’s a game. Just a game.
Or is it?
A Post-Apocalyptic Urban fantasy world with a slow burn Whychoose Romance.
(Deadworld is set a century after the events of Chronicles of Midnight and Chronicles of Arcana, and there may or may not be some familiar characters parading around. However, you don’t have to have read the previous series to enjoy it.)
The sea kingdom of Thalassar has a deadly secret: the one true heir has gone missing.
To save the kingdom, a lookalike is quickly thrown in her place.
Maisie is a waitress, not a royal. The glittering crowns, silk gowns, and three charming mermen can’t distract her from the real danger hidden in plain sight.
There was a reason the princess disappeared: she knew too much…and someone wanted her dead.
For Kenna Carter, life is simple. Kill the monsters, close the breaches, collect a pay-check and keep her secret safe…until fate decides to be a bitch…
Kenna Carter is one of the chosen. Branded by fate as Fearless, she and her companions patrol the night and keep the city of Lindrealm free from otherworld denizens. Any pocket of darkness, any nook or cranny can spawn a breach, allowing hungry monsters from the Evernight to come crawling though. A reluctant treaty with Erebus and his clan of dark djinn offers protection from the worst of the monsters, and maintains the balance needed to keep Lindrealm safe. But fate has other plans for Kenna.
One night, one mission, and her life is thrown off course.
Broken and filled with despair, Kenna finds herself in Erebus’s world, a place of eternal darkness and enchantments. A prisoner or a guest, she isn’t quite sure, but with the help of a guardian angel and a talking gargoyle she hopes to find out just where she fits in the grand scheme of things, because Kenna has a secret destiny. One that she is about to discover could require the ultimate sacrifice. But when the time comes, will Kenna make the right choice?
They thought the beasts that had destroyed their world were gone…
When an old evil reawakens, the only way to keep their people safe is to ally with their enemy. But a marriage alliance is not what Keanna wants. And running from her fate only made things worse…
After the disappearance of her mother, Keanna is desperate to find her. Desperate enough to team up with three unlikely companions.
But what happens when her journey leads her to the one place she’d been willing to risk everything to avoid?
Braving the Beasts is a reverse harem serial and is recommended for ages 18 and older.

Tell us a bit about yourself
*this makes me nervous*
Okay, a little about myself? What can I say that hasn’t already been said before? I’m a Scottish/Irish Mexican mix of a person, and live in Mexico with my husband and son in a small town surrounded on every side by mountains and volanoes. I’m a bit of an introvert, but I’m trying to break out of that shell and make friends for myself. I loooove anything and everything that has to do with the ocean. I seriously wish I lived by the beach. I have two pet goldfish (Frankenfish and Jordan) and a pet guinea pig named Jacob Kawalsky. I’m pretty open and will probably answer any question haha.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve wanted to be an author since I was 12 or 13 years old. It’s kind of when my love for books started. My mom says I’ve always been a bookaholic, but I remember that books didn’t start to really, truly impact me until I started middle school and that’s when I started dabbling in poetry and writing stories for manga. It just stuck with me. I loved it, still do.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
My current series is… *counts on fingers* Okay, well I have a lot of current series but the most recent one I published (Slave to Ice & Shadows, Royal Lies) is a spin off to Royal Secrets. I just really wanted to write from the point of view of a female main character who was different from the rest. But overrall, the idea of this whole world came to me because of my love for mermaids, and because I thought it would be fun to have a type of “I look like royalty and am going to pretend to be her for a while” type story for myself. (Lizzie McGuire/Monte Carlo, anyone?) hahahah.
What are you working on now?
Right now I’m working on a cowrite with someone who has been my best friend since we were 15. It’s a secret project and I can’t say much about it except that it’s out of my comfort zone and going to be a contemporary romance series. I’m also working on book three of Origins of the Six series with my coauthor, AK Koonce, as well as book three of Royal Lies.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
Hmm… I wouldn’t really call it a quirk, but I have to have absolute silence when I’m writing. I’m one of those people who can’t concentrate with noise in the background or any little bothersome thing. I have to be in a comfortable position, so that means sweatpants or pajamas, and if it’s cold warm socks, while I sit on a pillow and am covered in my mermaid tail blanket. I also can’t write in long sleeves for some reason. And I have to have something to drink and/or snack on in front of me or else I’m lost.
Once, I couldn’t write a scene because the goldfish kept pushing the rocks around in their tank and that was just way too much noise for me hahahah.
What are your hopes for the future?
So–and I think a lot of authors might have this–I have a list of “author” goals. It’s a mental list, mind you, that I started when I knew I wanted to publish books. I won’t go into super detail about what’s on this list, I don’t want anyone to think I’m super delusional or overly ambitious (is there such a thing?), but right now what I want/hope for is to cconnect with fans. I really would like to go to an author con somewhere and meet other authors, meet fans, sign books, give out swag. That’s one of my ultimate goals for next year.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
I would suggest, write what you love and make sure it comes from the heart. Also, don’t give up. Writing is HARD, but you have to keep doing it. Even if you feel down or sad or like you aren’t good enough, you ARE. I know it may not seem like it and I’ve felt that way a lot, I still feel that way sometimes (most times lol), but it really is a very rewarding career. Even if your first paycheck is only a few dollars, I like to look at it like “I have a few people out there who know my name, who read my story, and that’s enough.”
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
To my readers, I probably don’t say this enough because I’m always busy, but I just want to thank you for picking up my book, for reading, for reviewing, for recommending. It means the world to me and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted out of an author career. Please, if you feel intimidated or scared to send me a message and you really want to DON’T. I looove receiving messages from you guys, even if it’s just a quick “I really liked your book”, it makes my day so much better and I WILL reply. Probably not right away, but I will. I promise. 🙂
