Resurrect: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 1) by Kendra Moreno & Poppy Woods

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 . . .

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 Dark magic and outdated pack law are both working against me.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.’

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?

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?

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.

Blurb:

I am a latent wolf shifter.
Or so I thought.

Then life as I knew it changed in a flash—or more accurately, an electrocution.

I’ve woken up in a strange place, surrounded by strange people who hate me. They’re in the middle of a war, and I look like I belong on the wrong side of it.

If that’s not enough to qualify as a really bad day, I now have wings and a strange animal to figure out, because it turns out that there’s not a damn latent thing about me.

If I want to live, I have to prove that I’m not the spy I’m accused of being. Then I need to figure out how the fuck to get back home before all hell breaks loose. Too bad my animal has zero interest in working with me unless it has to do with the two hot assholes that lead this rebel group.

I’m on my own, in a place I’ve never even heard of, with threats I don’t know how to defeat. And lucky me, I might as well have a rotisserie chicken living inside of me for all the help my newly discovered gryphon is.

Perfect. Just fucking perfect.

Havoc by Auryn Hadley #newrelease @AurynHadley

Havoc: A Reverse Harem Epic Fantasy (Rise Of The Iliri Book 9) by Auryn Hadley

°

°

HISTORY DECREES SHE MUST DIE—OR LOSE HER MIND

The world has waited a long time for the Kaisae—Salryc Luxx, leader of the iliri and commander of the allied forces. Kaisaes before her have died or gone mad. But now that they are so close to finally winning the war and finding peace for her species, either option is unthinkable! She’s still needed. The war is yet to be won, and now there’s a coup brewing at home in Anglia.

As Sal prepares for a crucial push into enemy territory, the biggest battle her country faces isn’t about destruction; it’s about the rebuilding that comes after. If they want this war to matter, their new citizens will need to remember what it means to be iliri: to make packs, have children, and find the remains of their culture. They’ll need to make a home, and do it together—all three species: iliri, graouri, and humans. Although Sal is battling personal issues almost as large as her military battles, like the fact that no Kaisaes live into a happy old age. They either die fighting—or they go insane.

The newest member of Sal’s pack, Ryali, has been recruited to research the creation of the iliri species in the hope of discovering the reason Kaisaes have historically lost touch with reality—and hopefully she can find a way to make sure it doesn’t happen to Sal. But she’ll need more than old books to help. Luckily, there’s an answer—and Sal’s newly-expanded four-mate harem is determined to save her. It looks like they’re going to need a much bigger tent.

°

°

It’s the final stretch of Auryn Hadley’s Rise of the Iliri series, and in this ninth installment, heart-stopping military action-adventure in battle is blended seamlessly with enough heady, complex sociopolitical commentary to delight both fantasy and science fiction readers—not to mention the steamiest of love scenes, sure to excite reverse harem romance fans.

A Song of Ice and Fire’s beloved fantasy author George R.R. Martin once mused that he wished Tolkien had written more about what happens after the great war is won: How do the people move on? What of famine and flood? What happens next? Both Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones epic fantasy fans will find clever explorations of these questions here.

°

°

For those who haven’t yet tried this series, now’s the time! It’s epic science fantasy at its pulse-pounding best, with a female protagonist sure to touch your heart—and win it—with her inspiring blend of compassion and strength. It’s also a searing-hot reverse harem fantasy romance—because it has to be. Not only is that the iliri way, but in any society, Sal would be too much woman for only one man.

Like in all of the Rise of the Iliri novels, this epic fantasy story focuses on loving relationships, platonic and romantic, with a steamy reverse harem theme. Sal’s erotic love scenes with her four male mates are explicit and almost unbearably titillating, although not for all readers—especially humans under eighteen.

Author M.J. Marstens #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author M.J. Marstens

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am a homeschooling mom of three wonderful kids. I used to teach foreign languages at the collegiate level, but now own a private practice in a yoga studio called Bright Light Therapy where I am a holistic psychotherapist. In my free time, I write, lol.

°

Have you always wanted to become a writer?

Yes and no. I have always loved to write and I might have thought about it as a kid, but not really as an adult.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Actually, it was a dream, haha. A very inappropriate dream that evolved into something more.

°

What are you working on now?

Total Lunar Eclipse is the third and final book in The Afflicted Zodiac series and will come out the end of August. I am also working on a dark menage standalone and an RH retake of Swan Lake called the Swan Empress, both to come out this year.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

My youngest is just 2 and still breastfeeds, so I have a lot of time holding him and just thinking. . . I get a lot of ideas and keep my iPod next to me to record anything. Sometimes this happens 2 or 3 in the morning and I have to whisper. When I listen to myself the next day, I sound like someone from the Blair Witch Project, lol.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

To be happy. I’m a really simple gal.

°

°

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

I’m really glad you asked this question because I definitely came into this business blind. Firstly, I did not have FB of any kind, so I was behind the ball in this regard. Since most people already have FB, use this to grow your readers. Make a FB page and reading group and join similar genre groups to add friends and meet other like-minded authors and readers. Do Take-overs at release parties and offer giveaways and interesting posts to keep members engaged in your author group/page. Next: get your cover professionally done! And make sure your book is edited. I was so excited to publish my book, I did my own cover and self-edited. I am very well-spoken, but I missed A LOT. I finally had my cover redone and my book edited professionally and since then, my sales have soared. The truth is, you are going to have put a little money out up-front in self-promotions and polishing if you really want a well-done product. Learn from my mistakes because I probably wasted a lot of money I could have been putting towards my book instead, lol.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Yes: THANK YOU! If it weren’t for you guys, I really wouldn’t be much of an author. You inspire me to keep writing. And that means the world to me.
