The Librarian’s Coven by Kathryn Moon

°

From her first step onto Canderfey University’s campus Joanna Wick, the new librarian-in-training, is overwhelmed by the bustle of people and the wealth of magical information now available to her. Most overwhelming of all, she attracts the attention of three handsome professors. But Aiden King, Callum Pike, and Isaac Metclaffe are a coven waiting to find their fourth and complete their home and Joanna knows she can’t be that witch. She’s barely magical.

When danger crawls onto the campus from the edges of the Hand Woods, and irrepressible feelings crawl into her heart, Joanna Wick must explore her own identity and abilities.

Aiden has been waiting twenty years to complete his coven. Callum doesn’t want to disappoint his covenmates by turning down another potential fourth. Isaac has found a home with them both and only wants the best for his lovers. Have they found what they’ve all been waiting for in the skittish new hire at the university library?

Soldiers of Blood & Ruin by Rowan Thalia

°

°

Enter a new apocalyptic world of vampires and zombies where humans are struggling to survive against all odds.

BioWar, World War III

Sixty years ago, the first shot was fired.

In the last ten years, our country has fallen. Chemical agents dropped mercilessly on friend and foe alike have created two new species of humanoid, and the world population has been reduced to small colonies of humans fighting against them to survive.

Out on a routine patrol, my team and I run into the worst kind of trouble. Branded and left for dead by our superiors, we form bonds that cannot be broken and find asylum with the enemy.

Seeking knowledge, my sexy team of four and I race across the wasteland fighting zombies, mutants, and our own transformation for the one thing that can give us answers: a sample of untainted DNA. Aligned with vampires and on the run, we thought things couldn’t get worse until a hidden threat finds me.

When conspiracy is the norm, who can I trust?

The war is not over and the fight between the species has just begun.

Harem of Freaks by Crystal Ash

°

°

Who knew cages and freaks would set me free?

Growing up in trailer trash hell, the carnival was my only happy memory as a child. I held onto the magic of that memory until I could finally escape. And like Alice down the rabbit hole, I entered a world beyond my wildest dreams. A world with a shiny, colorful exterior, but filled with rot and corruption underneath.

But no matter what these people put me through, I can’t go back to my life before.

The man with the biggest secret is the only one I can trust. He’s dangerous, but he’s safety to me. He’s broken, but he put me back together. I’ll keep his secret. My heart hopes he’ll keep me. But in a hall of mirrors, how do you know what’s real or an illusion?

Every grueling night onstage is building up to a final show: The Wolf Man. Is he real or a hoax? Why do I feel such a pull to find out his truth?

Care to join me on this wild ride? Step right up.

18+

Harem of Freaks is a slow-build reverse harem series. The heroine will add to her harem and build multiple relationships as the series continues.

As a paranormal investigator, Rayne is no stranger to the unknown. But when she embarks on her latest case, her life takes a turn toward the magical. An ancient talisman and four sexy as hell magical keepers all but land in her lap, changing not only who she is, but what she will become.

Caught in between her old life and learning to be a witch, Rayne will be forced to decide between ending a curse or walking away and risking the lives of herself and others. Toussaint, Leif, Aedan, and Maceo are just as unprepared to become Rayne’s Keepers as she is to embrace her magical powers. Knowing she is the key to breaking the curse, can Rayne master her magic and fix what was broken?

Don’t miss Binding Rayne, the first in the Keepers of the Talisman series by Rowan Thalia. If you like paranormal sightings, shifters, witches, and tempting men, this reverse harem will have you turning the pages!

Rise Of The Iliri by Auryn Hadley

°

°

It’s a treacherous road to belonging—and once you find it, you could lose everything.

In an exotic world caught in the throes of a seemingly endless war, a nation of terrorists under the thumb of an evil Emperor has set out to systematically destroy every race but their own. And they’re just about to succeed. Lauded fantasy author Auryn Hadley (The Demons’ Muse romantic fantasy series) compellingly blends heart-stopping action-adventure, heart-breaking ethics, and toe-curling sensuality, all through the lens of a Daenerys Targaryen-esque lead—the likes of which the fantasy genre hasn’t yet seen.

When you were once a slave, freed only to become a ruthless warrior, “belonging” seems a trite concept. A pipe dream, the stuff of naive fairy tales. But not for Salryc Luxx. Private Luxx—Sal for short—is iliri, a member of an untamable race surreptitiously dubbed “their kind” by humans and bred thousands of years ago to protect them. Humans consider them expendable, barely more than animals. Freaks. But in a karmic twist of fate, they’re also one of mankind’s most feared predators. Abused and enslaved, the only control Sal has over her life is what military unit she serves with – if she’s good enough to be accepted – and the only one to consider her is the best in the land, the Black Blades.

Everyone has secrets, and the Blades are no different. But acceptance into the Blades gives Sal something she never expected—the family she’s never had, and with it, the undying protection of seven of the greatest warriors the world has ever seen. It also gifts her a devoted line of potential mates. Many of her fellow warriors will submit to the bloodlust that overtakes her in the heat of battle and can only be quenched by rough, passionate lovemaking (making way for the steamiest of love scenes). Though it’s not all war and sex. Sal very gradually cultivates deeply loving, evolving relationships with each of the Black Blades, which morphs as a unit into a reverse harem as sweet as it is fierce, and as protective as it is impassioned.

But belonging has its own price. Each of the Blades would die to protect Sal. And it’s only a matter of time before the enemy moves to use this against her.

Author Hadley has crafted a unique epic fantasy—and an absolute roller coaster of emotions. Her heroine, Sal, is as loving as she is ferocious, and the demons she battles—and the way she beats them—underlie a delicate exploration of the ethical and political battles we face in every war we fight. Hadley’s clever takes on racial prejudice are subtle, yet damning—and her idea of sexual politics is a rip-roaring turn-on. Every female reader will want to be Sal… and every male, like the guys in the book, will fall for her.

The first book in the Rise of the Iliri series. BloodLust does not end with a cliffhanger. It does contain adult themes, thus may not be suitable for younger readers.

The Shadowborn Series by Erin O’Kane

°

°

They say not to jump at shadows. That’s all well and good, but what if you are being hunted by one?

Trying to escape her past, Ari is working to atone for her actions and have a normal human life. The only problem with that? She isn’t human. Unlike most werewolves, she avoids as much contact with the supernatural world as possible, building a life for herself in the human world.

Until one day her past catches up with her, and she is forced to immerse herself in the supernatural world. Offered protection from the local wolf pack, she is forced to accept it, but nothing in the supernatural world comes for free.

For highly independent lone wolf Ari, this is her worst nightmare, especially as several Alpha males start vying for her affections. Ari will have to decide whether her independence is more important to her than her life.

*Please note this is an 18+ reverse harem novel and may include triggers for some readers*

Mates of the Realms by Lacey Carter Andersen

°

°

A demon-hunter trying to survive. Three sexy-as-hell demons. And the truth that will change their lives forever…

Being a demon-hunter means living a life of danger. Of giving up everything to keep humanity safe, even if they’ll never know it. And for Sharen, it means knowing she’s fighting on the side of good.

Which is all just fine– until she’s accidentally tied to three demons.

Alec, Ryder, and Kade are handsome, dangerous, and absolutely certain that Sharen is the woman they want to spend the rest of their immortal lives loving. They don’t care that they’re enemies, they’re bound and determined to show her that there’s more to her world than what she’s been told.

But there’s one problem with their plan. Something they never could have expected. The woman they’ve claimed as their own, well, she doesn’t like being lied to. And when those lies endanger the people she loves… she’s going to do something about it.

Even if she has to burn her whole damn world down.

RENEGADE HUNTER is a reverse harem with three demons and one woman. It’s filled with steamy sex scenes, action, and a neat paranormal world. But be warned, this book may leave you wondering why all your dreams can’t be filled with sexy demons who know just how to possess a woman. This book includes the serials: Beautiful Mistake, Reckless Magic, and Vengeful Hunter. *** Enjoy this completed series! ***

Together We Fall by Katie May

°

°

Most people don’t think about where they’re going to be when the world ends. On the beach drinking margaritas? In the arms of a lover?

How about in a shit-ass resort run by your shit-ass parents?

I have always lived my life as the perfect daughter. At seventeen, I had no other option than to follow my parents’ strict regiment. Did I mention that they’re assholes?

The world didn’t decide to suddenly end. Oh no, that would be too easy. Instead, it was a series of events that led to its eventual demise. Earthquakes, tornados, and a mysterious virus that turned people into raving lunatics. Fortunately for me, I have the help of seven handsome men to combat the coming storm. Literally.

Declan, an enigma from my past. Ryder, a flirty musician. Asher, the sweetest boy I had ever met and probably the only one that I don’t want to kick in the balls. Tamson, shy and timid, with a past I’m aching to uncover. Ronan, my sarcastic leprechaun. Fallon, the stoic leader. And, finally, Calax (but he doesn’t really matter because I kind of hate him and want him to fall on his head and die).

I will have to learn to rely on these boys and myself if we’re going to survive the apocalypse.

This is a slow-burn reverse harem series.

Warning: This book deals with sensitive issues such as abuse, rape, and suicide that some readers may find triggering. Reader discretion is advised.

°

Summerland Series by Kathryn Moon

°

°

Lucy Carson isn’t really looking forward to her honeymoon in Summerland. Can she still call it a honeymoon if her fiance, Greg, left her at the altar? Probably not.

The situation doesn’t get better when she discovers that the bed and breakfast won’t let her keep her reservation now that she’s single.

But the residents of Summerland, the strangely idyllic and drowsy oceanside town, are happy to have her come to visit. And in a town where all the residents are young and stunningly beautiful, there’s plenty to enjoy. Like Felix Graves, the darkly handsome owner of Sacred Grounds. Or Jack Wilder, the broad shouldered town recluse who lives in a cabin in the woods. Or even grumpy Dylan Waters, the lighthouse keeper who rents Lucy a little cottage. Not to mention Liam Smith, the rugged local handyman, and Raylon Beam, the mechanic with a smile that could blind a girl.

Things might start looking up for Lucy with neighbors like these, and maybe Summerland can give her a reason to stick around.

Now if she could just put her finger on what makes the town so mysterious…

This is a fast burn story and a gradual build harem, perfect for reading by the beach or on late summer nights.

°

°

Ghost, Spirits, and Demons.

Paranormal experiences aren’t usually part of the coursework for college. That is, unless you are Juniper Nevels.

Jun has had ghostly encounters all of her life, in fact she has come to expect them. Her two best friends, Dexter and Sterling have always been by her side to help her when they hit. Through battling the terrifying nightmares and spooky sightings, they’ve only grown closer.

When twin brothers, Asher and Alex join the group, the sparks start flying. Then, during what should have been a fun ghost hunting trip, plans go awry. The group of friends turned lovers awaken something dark living in the hidden corridors of Dudley Hall. Now that it is awake, it is hungry … and it’s eyes are set on Jun.

Jun and her four sexy roommates must come together to solve the mystery of the haunting before the encounters become fatal. Will they find the information they need to stop the terror that increases with each day?

Is Juniper strong enough to lock away the malevolent spirit, or will she follow him into the shadows?

Shifted Mates Trilogy by Crystal Ash

°

°

He stole a kiss and ran off with my heart between his teeth.

I should’ve expected as much from a wolf.

I’m a fox shifter in a world run by humans. They treat us like we’re beneath them, even shooting us when they have the chance. I’ll do anything to protect my family, so I learned how to shoot back. My aim is true and I’m just waiting for someone to piss off the wrong vixen.

Turns out, we have bigger threats than humans.

When the smoldering silver wolf from my past reappears with a golden eagle sidekick, my heart can’t handle it. I refuse to let Orion hurt me again, but he’s here to warn me about a greater evil. The same evil that plagued him years ago.

And now, it wants more of us. Black magic is spreading, fueled by the blood and bones of shifters like us to do horrible things.

All I ever wanted was get over him and settle down with a charming fox I could bring home to my parents. I just met a cute one named Conan too.

But when shifters are being sacrificed for black magic, a girl’s got to take aim and fire.

Wolf’s Bane is the first in a steamy reverse harem trilogy. Contains elements of gun violence, dark themes, and sexual situations.

Power of Five by Alex Lidell

Four elite fae warriors. One mortal female. A magical bond they can’t allow—or resist.

Orphaned and sold to a harsh master, Lera’s life is about mucking stalls, avoiding her master’s advances, and steering clear of the mystical forest separating the mortal and fae worlds. Only fools venture into the immortal realms, and only dark rumors come out… Until four powerful fae warriors appear at Lera’s barn.

River, Coal, Tye, and Shade have waited a decade for their new fifth to be chosen, the wounds from their quint brother’s loss still raw. But the magic has played a cruel trick, bonding the four immortal warriors to… a female. A mortal female.

Distractingly beautiful and dangerously frail, Lera can only be one thing—a mistake. Yet as the males bring Lera back to the fae lands to sever the bond, they discover that she holds more power over their souls than is safe for anyone… especially for Lera herself.

Power of Five is a full-length reverse-harem fantasy novel.

Author Arizona Tape #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Arizona Tape

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m Ari, I live in the UK with my girlfriend, and I’m heading towards my mid-twenties. I spend most of my time working on my author business, but between those, I like taking video game breaks, whipping up some tasty food, and binge-watching whatever has
caught my attention.

A couple of fun facts that people might not know about me:

– I like drawing and painting

– I can play the piano and harp

– I love singing, even if it makes all the cats sing along

– I adore manga, anime, and anything Japanese. I’m dreaming of visiting Japan.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

My love affair with authordom has been a slow one.
The one thing I’ve been doing my whole life is telling stories. As a child, that would be in the form of drawing little stick figures with text balloons, I wrote a couple of stories here and there throughout school,
and I made up stories in my head all the time.

It wasn’t until my grey years hit in college that I started using my writing as an outlet to channel my feelings. Often, I wouldn’t understand what I was going through until I could look at it through the eyes of my characters. It took me another year or
two before I realised I could turn these stories into real books and try my hand at a career. As if bitten by the bookbug, I became obsessed overnight.

I published my first book, The Love Pill, started working on the next one, and about twenty books and two years later, here I am.

The Love Pill

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Not Today is based on my own experiences as a student in the rainbow world. I was a very active member of my student club and enjoyed all type of shenanigans that come with that. There were so many highs and memories I fondly remember, but overall, it was quite a dark time for myself emotionally. Almost all my friends were either depressed, suicidal, or had lots of issues they hadn’t processed yet. I was no different.

Years after the fact, I’m much more stable, but lots of young people out there aren’t. The aim for this particular book/series is to tell a tale that’ll resonate with them. To maybe spark some hope that it does get better?

And of course, for those after their student life, for a fond look back.

Not Today

What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on Valkyrie 101, an Urban Fantasy Academy series that explores elementals as guides for human souls to the afterlife. Ylva, my main characters, is training to become a Valkyrie and help the departed reach their desired destination.
In her case, Valhalla.

But there are many other types of Afterlife Assistants, and each of them have their own rituals, courses, and a different afterlife to serve. Purgatory, the World of Darkness, the Underworld, … It’s going to be an exciting ride with a lot of mythology,
an apocalypse, and a forbidden lesbian romance.

Valkyrie 101

Do you have any quirks while writing?

To really get in the writing zone, I like to put the same song on endless repeat and just hammer away at my keyboard with the same tunes blaring for hours on end. Next to that, I find it hard to write when someone else has view of my screen. I like my laptop
a little turned away.

I guess it’s my own version of the writing cave.

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope I never run out of stories to write. My imagination is my greatest asset and I hope it’s a well that never runs dry. I want to keep fantasising, I want to keep making up characters, and I want to take people on a journey they’ve never been on before.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

The threshold to become an author is really low, but the threshold to real success is incredibly high. I think that’s one of the things that people might not know when they start out.

It’s easy to start and easy to think you’ve made it when you hit publish on your first book. But if you’re looking for a steady stream of income, if you’re looking to make this a career that can sustain you, it’s a long and hard climb. Only hard work will
get you to the top and keep you there. There are no short cuts, no matter what anyone says.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you. Without the support of my readers, I would never be where I am now. I have an incredibly supportive group of close readers and authors that mean the world to me. They’re the unicorns of the publishing world, the gold at the end of the rainbow,
and what makes being an author a worthwhile use of my time.
