Pre-order Painless by @CrystalAshBooks

Painless (Steel Demons MC Book 4)


Love is never painless.
Especially when you love dangerous men.

My heart wants the most dangerous one of all–the golden man with the beautiful smile. Gunner strikes enemies as ruthlessly as his falcon, but when it comes to us, he keeps me tortured and begging for a swift end.

He crushed me once, then kissed hope back into me. His indecision will be the slow, painful death of me. I’m done waiting. I’ll make him put me out of my misery, or pull the trigger myself.

If dealing with him wasn’t enough pain, I’m also getting my Steel Demons tattoo from Shadow.

The scarred, quiet man has been coming around to me slowly. My new cat companion is obsessed with him. If my time with the Steel Demons has taught me anything, it’s to trust the instincts of our animal guardians.

They’re intelligent. Sometimes, they even talk to us.

I don’t expect my first tattoo to be painless. But can I heal my artist from the pain he keeps locked inside?

Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this dystopian reverse harem adventure! Painless is the fourth book in the Steel Demons MC saga. This series is full of kindle-melting steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended.

Fearless (Steel Demons MC Book 3)

I once did everything in my power to save lives.
Now I stand aside and watch men die.

The man I love must kill one of his own. Someone he considered a brother, a fellow Steel Demon, put the entire club in danger. As president, Reaper must crush every last threat to his people, or the Steel Demons MC could cease to exist altogether.

Reaper is ruthless. His justice is punishing. But despite his name, he takes no pleasure in executing someone he once trusted. The task is weighing on him. That’s why he needs me.

But he’s not the only one. 

The vice president with the seductive charm needs me. The silent soldier with terrifying nightmares needs me. And the sweet, golden man with the falcon on his shoulder? It scares me how much I need him.

All of these men have killed without hesitation. They all battle demons I can’t begin to fathom. In my journey to combat violence with healing, I found my home with men just as cruel as they are loving. 

Can I be fearless enough to love them all?

The Lost by @K_AKnight #newrelease

The Lost (Their Champion Companion Novel Book 2) by K.A. Knight

After I was betrayed and left for dead in the sands of the wasteland, I found a new home—a sanctuary of lost souls like me. With the help of others, I rebuilt myself until I was stronger than before, but when word comes that my old home, Paradise, has fallen, I have a choice to make. 

Leave my new home, my new life and friends, and ride to the rescue of the very people who betrayed me…or stay? 

The decision isn’t an easy one, but three men will stand by my side either way. It seems fate has its eyes on me and when my past, present, and future collide, will I be left heartbroken or will they reassemble the damaged, tattered pieces of me?

Three men, one I loved as child, one as teenager, and the other as a woman…the question is, can I still love them all? Is my heart big enough? 

But this isn’t just a love story, oh no. This is a tale of revenge and queens. 

When the bloodshed and death arrive and war erupts, who will remain beside me? 

*18+ Reverse Harem Romance. Warning this book contains scenes and references of abuse/assault that some readers may find triggering. Along with graphic sex scenes and violence*

My review

Author Belle Harper #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself


Well, I’m Belle Harper. And I live in a little semi-rural town about an hour from Melbourne, Australia. I love mint chocolate, all types of office supplies. I’m married and have three children.

Have you always wanted to become an author?


Yes, for as long as I could remember I would be reading, making plays for my sisters to act in or just telling my parents made up stories and entertaining them. When I was 12, I told my parents I wanted to be an author and that stayed with me into my teens. But I never knew how to go about it, so the dream died and I went into aged care nursing. Which was a job I loved, but not my dream.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?


My current series out is Brides of the Aashi. I just fell in love with Alien romance back in 2017 when I first read a Ruby Dixon book. And I slowly built my Alien world and all the worlds around them over about a six month period. It was a lot of fun, but I gave my Aliens a little twist, most books have Alpha males. And in the Aashi world they are not, it’s a female run world.

What are you working on now?


I’m currently working on a paranormal series. Book one is Twice Bitten and will be out March. (April the latest.) It is Young Adult/ New Adult. With Shifters and Vampires as her love interests.

Do you have any quirks while working?


Mmm… haha. I eat chocolate when im editing. Every chapter I edit I give myself 5 M&M’s. I have now started writing “The End” at the start of all my manuscripts. Then as I am typing I’m chasing the end. Because there is no better feeling than a finished book.

What are your hopes for the future?


I hope that readers still enjoy my books and I will continue to produce stories. I have great support from my husband and kids. I’m a full time author, and this is my dream job.

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


Join all the craft and author FB groups you can. Books, podcasts, YouTube videos. I go to the supermarket and listen to the Self publishing show every Friday. So its easy to learn new skills when there is so many authors sharing knowledge… I love learning.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?


My amazing readers and followers. I love you all. You always have your pom poms out when I am writing or when I release a new book. I wouldn’t be here without you all, so thank you all for taking a chance on me. It keeps me going, and wanting to better myself as a writer.

Last Chance?
Some might say that, but for me it’s a new beginning.
On the run from an overbearing Alpha that’s decided to trade me for an alliance, I travel across the country in search of a place to hide. I will not be sold.
As luck would have it, I stumble upon my new forever home. A beacon in the night, the Last Chance Diner calls me into it’s sanctuary. The Not-A-Pack that run the restaurant reluctantly take me in, and from there everything about my life changes.
Just when I think I’ve outrun my former life, Thane’s enforcer finds me. I’m forced to make a split second decision that shatters my newfound freedom. Every move I make seems to lead me into a new danger and now I’ve got four mates that I’m dragging with me into the melee.
Amidst the chaos, a prophecy comes to light and hope blooms bright. As Moon Born, I charge forward with the intent to reclaim my life, and solidify my mate bonds. With three Sisters of the Moon and my four mates at my side, I feel invincible.
Will my new powers be enough to break the chains of my betrothal, or is Thane’s dominance too great to overcome? Dark magic and outdated pack law are both working against me.
I’m determined to win and destined to lead a new era.
‘A great leader will fall,
His loss will be her gain.
And so shall the Moon Born rise.’

Blooming Courts by Poppy Woods and Kendra Moreno

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 . . .

Stealing Shiloh by Loxley Savage and K.A. Knight

I am one of the Forsaken. 

Growing up in the Harvest House I always knew what my destiny would be – a life dedicated to an alien Klan purley for mating purposes. Never did I imagine that I would actually like the Klan who won me never mind start to care for them…and crave them. 

My new life on Oxious was better than I had ever hoped for, until I was taken. My captors are cruel and malicious. They despise my Klan mates for a past I know nothing about. Guided by their blind rage, they take their hatred out on me.

Will I ever see my mates again or will I forever remain a captive in this unforgiving prison?

My name is Shiloh, and I have been stolen. 

*Stealing Shiloh is book two in The Forsaken series, this book can be read as a stand-alone as can any of the others. This book has mature content intended for 18+ with explicit and violent scenes. Stealing Shiloh is a reverse harem, dark alien sci-fi romance*

Sabine Bordeaux is destined to marry the Valentine heir, something she’s known since birth. Their union will end the bloodshed once and for all. She knows her duty . . .

She wanted to escape her duty . . .

Until the day I meet him.’

No one even remembers why or how it started.
When a slave girl is sent to clean in a forbidden part of the castle, she stumbles across a secret which could cost her life.
A captured Elf, sworn enemy of the Human people, forced into making Elven weaponry to fight against his own kin.

Or will their union only serve to stoke the fires of hatred?

Fearless by Crystal Ash

I once did everything in my power to save lives.
Now I stand aside and watch men die.

The man I love must kill one of his own. Someone he considered a brother, a fellow Steel Demon, put the entire club in danger. As president, Reaper must crush every last threat to his people, or the Steel Demons MC could cease to exist altogether.

Reaper is ruthless. His justice is punishing. But despite his name, he takes no pleasure in executing someone he once trusted. The task is weighing on him. That’s why he needs me.

But he’s not the only one.

The vice president with the seductive charm needs me. The silent soldier with terrifying nightmares needs me. And the sweet, golden man with the falcon on his shoulder? It scares me how much I need him.

All of these men have killed without hesitation. They all battle demons I can’t begin to fathom. In my journey to combat violence with healing, I found my home with men just as cruel as they are loving.

Can I be fearless enough to love them all?

All the Teacher’s Prisoners by NJ Adel

I investigate a murder at a paranormal prison and end up behind bars with four psycho inmates.

A secret prison for the supernatural is being built. I have one thing to say to that. BS.
But when a murder happens at Forest Grove Penitentiary on a secret ward my father claims it’s where they keep supernatural inmates, and the crime is staged to make our kind look dangerous, giving the government grounds to lock us up whenever they want, I have to investigate the murder myself.
If any of this is true, my whole family and I are in danger. 

The four suspects I interrogate scream notorious evil psychos. Classic criminals. Nothing supernatural.
Except when one of them siphons my magic–did I mention I’m a shifter?–and uses me to break out… What in the actual…?

As the government declares me an accomplice, not a victim, I’m on the run with a dangerous demon, a psycho half-vampire half-lion shifter, a killer dragon shifter and a treacherous fae. And to make matters worse, the paranormal prison is real, and my father has been placed there for no reason.
I have to find a way to save him and my family. 
Whatever it takes. 
Even if I go back to that prison myself and lose my freedom forever and perhaps even my life.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m British and I live in a small town in the South West of England. I have a fabulous hubby, two amazing girls, and a black cat that thinks he’s a panther.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

The short answer is yes. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved books and stories. But it was something that wasn’t encouraged and I honestly never thought I’d be able to call myself an author. I still pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

The inspiration for my Freedom Series is deeply personal for me. Matty is a girl who has grown up believing she’s bad and less than everyone around her because she’d unable to live by the rules surrounding her. It’s set in a post apocalyptic commune and is based heavily on my experiences growing up in a cult and overcoming cognitive dissonance.( Something that occurs when someone with deeply entrenched, indoctrinated, beliefs is faced with an indisputable truth that is opposite to the belief currently held. It’s a form of denial, but much stronger and causes a lot of distress and anxiety.)

What are you working on now?


I’m working on Liberty, the second book in the Freedom Series (Due February 29th) And I’m also plotting out a new series, The Barmecide Society.

Do you have any quirks while writing?


Not a quirk really, but I prefer to write the first draft long hand in a notebook. And I have to have a certain pen and paper. So yes, a but odd, I guess. lol. 

What are your hopes for the future?

That my family will be safe and happy and I that I can continue to write the stories that people like to read.

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

Write what you love. Write what you want to read. 

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for taking the plunge and reading my stories. I’d still be dreaming of publishing if it weren’t for you.

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a certified book dragon with an excessive TBR, a shoe obsession, and mum of two wee beasties.


Have you always wanted to become an author?

I haven’t always wanted to be an author. I’ve been writing since I was six years old but I never dreamed I’d actually publish a book, let alone have four series.


What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My most current series is the Twisted Kingdoms, which is a dark epic fantasy series with a mafia undertone and a sprinkling of fairy tale dust. I watched snow white for the first time in ages and was sorely put out with how much I HATED the story line. I wanted Snow to be hunter, not the damsel in distress which inspired The Hunt.



What are you working on now?

I work on several projects at once. I’m currently working on The Rook (Twisted Kingdoms 2), Court’s Fool (The Aermian Feuds 6 and the last book in the series), and The Fallout (Dominion of Ash 3)



Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like a sunny spot to write and I like it quiet. I’ve tried to write at coffee shops, but I find myself people watching instead of writing. #creepersbecreepin



What are your hopes for the future?

I’m actually hoping to take it a little slow in the future. I absolutely hate a deadline so I’ve decided not to give myself one so I can read sink into the story without the added stress of finishing on time.



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

Advice… sit down and write. You can’t market a book you haven’t finished. Also, remember that this isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. If you need a break, take it. Burn out is real.



Do you have anything to say to your readers?

To my lovely readers: I would never had been able to do this without you. It amazes me every day that someone would take their precious time and reader something I created. It’s humbling and I’m so very appreciative. (((HUGS)))

Taming The Ringmaster #review

Taming The Ringmaster (Her Freaks Book 2) by Erin O’Kane & K.A. Knight

°

°

After the bombs, the world changed. Alcide’s Circus is proof of that. Freaks, outcasts, abominations, they have been called it all, but they found freedom within the big top to embrace themselves and each other. They have never been slaves—until now.

Last Stop is a mecca in a destroyed world, filled with riches and treasures from the times before, yet under the decadent, utopian façade hides a darker underbelly, and when the circus rolls into town, things start to get interesting.

Fate has its cruel eyes set on Rhea, and will test everything she thought she knew, not only about herself but her family as well. Sometimes you have to lose everything to find the truth about who you are, and what you are capable of.

When the Circus falls and the freaks are forced to fight for their lives in the dust, will there be anyone left to pick up the pieces?

°

OHMYGODS this book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. At one point in the book I was crying and was ready to fly to England and kick both authors butts, but they redeemed themselves in the end of the book. I felt emotional wrung out after that story, now I’m going to be suffering from a banging book hangover.
This book goes from ashes of book one into a roaring fire. Rhea and her men are pushed to their absolute limits when they go to the city. Deceit lies around every corner and Rhea will have to dig deep to overcome her fears. She will discover new and amazing sides of her powers.
Let’s not forget the new character that will be introduced *squeeeee* and the scorching hot heat level *fanning mysel* 🔥🔥🔥
I highly recommend you one-click this amazing series and fall in love with the characters as I have. You won’t be disappointed.

Tell us a bit about yourself

Goodness, I’m not that interesting. I’m a half demon sadist who enjoys tormenting my readers with good ol’ cliffhangers and tormenting the characters you love most. Really though, I’m a regular mom who supports my family and does her best to get by. Also, I love people. I love making friends. And I am always willing to offer a cuddle.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, I fell into this career after writing fanfiction for fun. People liked my words, so I expanded and listened to feedback and grew.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have the most interesting dreams. I take bits from them and pants the rest. I’m all about the pantsing writing style.

°

°

What are you working on now?

It’s a deep, dark secret, but I can tell you this. It will blow your mind.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

LOL. Don’t we all? I dress like a slob and wear free tee-shirts. I also use a ridiculous amount of post-its that have nothing to do with my writing. They are just there, on my desk, where I won’t read them, and they serve little actual purpose.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Justice.

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

This is one of my favorite questions. YES! I have great advice (I promise). If you are new to the writing world, do what I and many other authors you love did: post your first work for free on sites like Fictionpress and Literotica. Get feedback. Grow from that feedback (even though sometimes it might be hard to hear). And above all, read Stephen King’s ON WRITING. Best book I’ve ever come across that really grasps the craft.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Gosh, I have so many things I want to say. Thank you, first off, for supporting me. Thank you for doing your own research when things got ugly. Thank you for all the love you sent when my health went to shit. Thank you for the never-ending support. Really, I felt and still feel that love. Thank you for having fun with me, joking with me, letting me tease you. Thank you for joining the Addison Cain’s Dark Longings Lounge so we could get to know one another. Thank you for following me on facebook and subscribing to my silly newsletters.

THANK YOU for being you. Thank you for letting me get to know you.
