Feathers & Fire by Loxley Savage
I’ve been called all of these, except my true name—a secret I’ve never learned.
I was groomed for a life of captivity; brought up as a slave for the exclusive club, Exotique. I’m desired for my body and thirsted after for my addictive blood. I’m stripped and restrained while male after male acts out his twisted desires.
I’m constantly at war with myself while my inner beasts battle for dominance.
The succubus half of me craves these sessions. She longs for the toxic mix of pleasure and pain, feasting on the release of others.
My phoenix half lies dormant. She’s a silent presence who shudders at the crack of a whip, and shies away from the cruel hands of my handlers.
While I suffer through countless degrading sessions, somewhere far away a trio of Phoenix warriors are sanctioned by their King to find and rescue me. Will they succeed? Or will one of my handlers finally take a session too far?
Their race is dying, but so am I.
The Valhalla Mechanism by Kendra Moreno
Ottilie Kingsford has dealt with the judgmental eyes of the elite her entire life, especially since she’s one of them. She leads a double life, one she was raised for since birth: Lady during the day, Spy during the night. She’s a master of blending in, and the only currency she deals in are secrets and lies.
When her assignment takes her to a disruption in the main square, she never expects to witness a magical war between gods and monsters. She most certainly doesn’t intend for the gods to catch her slipping away to give her report.
Now Big Ben won’t tick no matter how many tinkers work on it and the harshest winter in history has descended on London. The Gods keep insisting it’s the end of times, but Ottilie doesn’t believe in myths and legends. If two of those so called legends would stop ogling her like she’s some sort of circus freak, she could do her job. She just needs to stop the end of days and send the two men back to Asgard, where they belong.
The gears of Ragnarӧk are turning, and Ottilie will not fail her Queen.
Even if the world suddenly belongs to monsters…
Her Soulkeepers by Sadi Moss
Three messengers of the gods each hold a piece of my soul. I won’t let them claim my heart too.
My people are dying.
Our god has abandoned us, leaving us starving and weak. In a desperate attempt to save those I love, I offer up the ultimate sacrifice to our capricious deity.
He accepts my offering, and I forfeit my life. But when I arrive in the afterworld, a rival god who despises mine binds my soul to three beautiful, terrifying men—powerful beings he calls his messengers.
Callum, Echo, and Paris.
I’m little more than an annoyance to them, a lost soul their master has foisted upon them.
Still, the bond between us draws me toward them constantly, like a lodestone finding true north, and the more time I spend with these enigmatic men, the more confused my feelings become.
I hate them. I want them. I fear them. I need them.
But no matter what happens, I won’t let myself love them.
Wings of Darkness + Light by C. Rochelle
Rejected by Hell
Hunted by Heaven
A destiny written in the stars
Current mood: Over it
Have you ever had the kind of week where you’re supposed to be escorting souls to Hell but instead you save a handsome human with some lightning power you didn’t know you possessed then end up in a naughty angel’s bed?
Well, that’s what’s new in my life…
And now my unrequited first love has left Hell to search for me before the killing machines of the Demonic Forces or the Angelic Army find me.
Some believe I’m the physical incarnation of a celestial legend, sent to shake up the already shaky truce between Heaven and Hell and save the human race. No pressure.
I failed my Reaper exams and have barely been kissed but that won’t stop me from harnessing my powers to claim my divine birthright. All while taking some very tempting men to bed–no matter if they’re angels, demons, or anything in between.
Rebel Werewolves by Rosemary A Johns
I was warned…
…don’t fall for the sinfully beautiful werewolves.
But even a badass witch can’t resist three scorching hot shifters, even if they’re my deadly enemy in an ancient war.
They call me the Crimson Tide. I’m the last of the Wolf Charmers: hunted witches whose magical powers control wolves.
As a witch hiding from my dark past – and the murder of my parents by werewolves – I must survive by one rule:
# Rule 1: Never trust the angelic perfection of an Omega
Unlucky for the Oxford coven who call me back home from America, I suck at following rules. When I’m forced to claim three gorgeous British shifter princes from rival Wolf Kingdoms, I can’t help loving and protecting them as pack, even if they hold their own dangerous secrets.
Yet the deeper I tumble into the mysterious world of pretty monsters, the further I spiral into sinister peril.
Am I right to trust an Omega? Has my whole life been a lie?
When my aunt’s coven and the Alphas test my Wolf Charmer powers, I’ll either discover what I’m capable of and who I truly am…
…or I’ll die.
A deadly disease has spread through the Blooming Courts of Tuatha.
The louloudi are meant to flourish for a thousand years before they return to the Earth. Death has been a distant foe for so long, no one spares it any thought. Until now. As sickness sweeps through the kingdom, with the cure always just out of reach, the courts have never been filled with so many blossoms. Even in death, they breathe life.
Ila Slystina has been raised in the confines of the Orchidasi Kingdom, wanting for nothing, hidden away like some sparkling treasure, but she dreams of so much more. When she’s caught returning from a forbidden trip, her mother, the Orchidasi Queen, punishes her the only way she sees fit.
Ila is sent on her season far earlier than she should be. Now, she’s being paraded through the twelve courts like a prized cow and she wants nothing more than to escape.
Her mother wants her to collect power.
But Ila finds herself collecting hearts instead.
With death surrounding her on every side, and new dangers sprouting up at every turn, can Ila learn to balance the mischief that sings in her soul with her duty to her people?
After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom . . .

Please give a warm welcome to author C. Rochelle
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m a naughty but sweet, introverted Aquarius weirdo who belives a sharp sense of humor is the sexiest trait, loves shaking my booty to Prince, and has never met a cheese I didn’t like. Oh, and I write dark and dirty books, usually in the paranormal, reverse harem romance genre.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve always loved writing but didn’t think about pursuing it as a career until COVID struck. I suddenly found myself stuck at home working full-time and trying to guide me 6-year-old through remote school. None of my usual creative outlets were helping me destress but one night, an idea struck for a paranormal reverse harem featuring angels and demons and a unique take on the usual mythology. I dove into writing head first and published all three books in my Wings of Darkness + Light trilogy. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else (although, I should really take a break every now and then).
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I’ve always felt a connection to the wild woman archetype and who better to embody that than a forest witch? And who’s the baddest witch around? Baba Yaga of course! My family comes from Russia/Poland originally, so I was familiar with the legends of Baba Yaga. As I refreshed myself with her stories, one stood out as perfect to be turned into a reverse harem romance with fated mate…but you’ll have to read Rise of the Witch to find out more!
What are you working on now?
I am in the finishing stages of preparing my next release – Rise of the Witch. This is the first in a new PNR RH series and has been getting a lot of hype, so I expect my focus will be on this for a while. However, I’m also working on an M/F MC (motorcycle club romance) novella that will be featured in an upcoming anthology (and will eventually lead into a related RH), plus some goodies for my completed PNR RH Wings of Darkness + Light trilogy. Oh, and I have a secret co-write project in the works…I would suggest joining my FB reader group and subscribing to my newsletter for news on all of the above!
Do you have any quirks while working?
I wouldn’t call it a quirk but I’m a pantser who eventually plots, which means that first, I blindly plow ahead, intuitively writing from the loose plot points and bits of dialogue floating around my brain. When I hit a stopping point, then I go back and work on a loose outline (which changes by the day, and even then my characters love to surprise me). I also edit as I go instead of writing the entire first draft. So, when I sit down to write, I usually reread the last chapter (and edit) to get myself back in the mindset. While part of me envies those who can plot out an entire book and simply follow the plan, this loose format seems to be working for me – and my creativity – so far.
What are your hopes for the future?
Hopefully, I’ll soon find enough success to turn this writing thing into a full-time gig, and therefore bring my readers even more dirty deliciousness!
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Don’t forget about marketing, self-promotion & hiring help! I work in marketing in my day job and still didn’t do enough pre-promotion with my first book/series, and I’ve been playing catch-up ever since. I’m also an introvert, so self-promotion can feel icky to me…but I’ve figured out how to do it in a genuine way, and in controlled doses so I’m not overextending myself. And on that note, I’m finally figuring out how to hire/bring on a team to help me with all of the above, so I don’t feel overwhelmed – a new PA who is passionate about my work and dedicated to helping me succeed and a superfan “hype girl” who can inspire my street team and early readers to help spread the word about my books. It’s important to have the right people in your corner.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
There aren’t enough thank-yous in the world for my readers (my little sinners)! As mentioned, I didn’t properly market my first series to start, so the people who did read and love it have been loyal (and loud) fans ever since, which helps new readers find my work. The ability to interact with my readers on social – especially in my C. Rochelle’s Little Sinners group on FB – has been invaluable. I truly feel like I’ve found my people!
