Wicked Waves by Erin O’Kane & Loxley Savage

Growing up beneath the firm grasp of the evil Kraken Queen is all Lyn has ever known. Under her harsh gaze, Lyn’s every move is watched and scrutinized, waiting for her to make a mistake. Should she place even a fin out of line, she will suffer the wrath of the Kraken’s Kiss.
Unable to endure the Queen’s envious stare any longer, Lyn escapes with the help of her only friend.
In her plight for freedom she flees to the one place she feels safe, her island. Unbeknownst to Lyn, two strangers await her there, determined to change her fate.

Meanwhile, a war between the underwater kingdoms escalates as the opposing princes continue to search for their missing mate.

Will Lyn find her freedom away from the tentacles of the Kraken Queen? Or will she forever be ensnared in the constant shifting of the twisted tides?

Feathers & Fire by Loxley Savage

Beautiful.
Gorgeous.
Slut.
Whore.

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.

Myself.

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.

The Blooming Courts 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 . . .

The Centrum Trilogy by Lucy Scott Bryan

Rejected. Cast out. On the run.

Amarli Wolfe hides in the human world. Barely surviving, after shutting down her wolf and cutting all ties with the supernatural world.

One touch changes everything. Not just for her.

Dorian, the Alpha of the Daniels Pack will kill to protect his son. Grady and Kerston, his loyal and dangerous betas. The pack made it painfully obvious that Amarli is not welcome.

One drop of blood heralds change. Many will answer. More are coming. Fated or not, they will gather.

Her Shield is her first. To protect her and her body.

Amarli will become what was written in the stars. Will her fated mates?

Tears will fall, lives will be at risk and hearts will be broken.

The Chaos of Foxes by Emma Dean

What should you do when you’re outfoxed?

Kenzie is the only non-witch in her family. When her younger sister’s powers end up stripped from her, Kenzie promises to find a way to get them back – after all she has a very specific set of skills after trying to make up for not having any powers of her own.

When Kenzie finds something to restore her sister’s powers, the only way to obtain it is to steal it from the Alpha of the West Coast Pride. Right as she’s about to succeed three sexy foxes snatch it right from under her nose. Will Kenzie be able to take it from them before they steal her heart as well?

The Aurora Marelup Series by Serenity Rayne

My name is Aurora and I am the last of my bloodline.
The Strigoi killed my family within moments of my birth. They entrusted my life to my Guardians Dimitri a Great Bear and Andre a Golden Eagle. They sent us through a portal to the new world to hide and protect me. We’ve spent the last two hundred years on the move like gypsies. The time has come and I’ve obtained my full power. The hunt for my mates is on. Once I succeed, I will take back my mother’s throne and dance on the bones of the Strigoi.

The Last Shifter series by Sadie Moss

Four renegade wolf shifters. An innocent young woman trapped in a web of lies. When their fates collide, sparks will fly…

Diagnosed with a rare terminal illness, I’ve spent over half my life in the Strand Corporation’s state-of-the-art treatment facility. I keep my chin up and do everything the doctors order, praying one day I’ll walk out of here in perfect health.

But when that day finally arrives, it’s nothing like I hoped it would be. Instead, it comes in a hail of gunfire, along with four distractingly handsome men who say they’re here to rescue me.

On the run with these mysterious men and hunted by the very people I believed were my caretakers, I begin to realize nothing is what I thought it was.

Turns out, I’m not really sick.

I’m not completely human either…

Razing Hell series by Cate Corvin

They broke my halo.
Burned my wings.
Sent me plummeting straight to Hell.

When I’m captured by demons and forced into the fighting pits of the Seventh Circle of Hell, I need to stay alive long enough to claw my way back to Heaven and destroy the archangels who betrayed me.
Four dangerous men stand between me and my vengeance.
A deadly Nephilim in self-imposed exile. Hunger incarnate, ravenous for an angel. The heir to Satan’s sinful throne. And the prince who bound my soul to his until I win my freedom.
They think I’m still pure. They think I’m innocent. They think they’ll enjoy corrupting me.
Joke’s on them. This angel’s no saint.
If Heaven doesn’t want me, I’ll be bad for the Hell of it.

Vengeance Series by M. Sinclair

I had been found feral, and despite their beautiful home… their beautiful facade – they were the same. Savages. Feral Savages. So I would treat them accordingly. I would live accordingly. I would kill accordingly.

I have a secret. Okay, probably more than one. I live a delicate balance, living with the evil I know than the one I don’t. I accepted that. Until they showed up. Until they brought my secret and past into the light. Until I had no choice but to accept my true fate.

Sh*t. This is why you punch first and ask questions later.

War of Heavenly Fire series by Devyn Sinclair

I am what they made me.

Lethal. Savage. Royal. 

Now I’ve been unleashed. 

When I’m sent to kill the angels leading heaven’s army, I didn’t realize death would be the least of my worries. 

Now my heart is at risk. 

Four angels stand between me and the throne that I’ve earned. 

A deadly warrior gifted with silver fire. The spirit of silence, stealth, and smoke. Heaven’s prince and radiant star. And the fallen angel who’s branded my soul. 

I have two choices: end the war and their lives, or turn my back on everything I’ve ever known. Infernal blaze, or heavenly fire. 

But each choice has a cost. 

In order to embrace one light, I must become the Queen of Darkness.

The War and Deceit Series by Erin O’KaneErin O’Kane

‘My name is 625.
At least, that’s the number branded into my skin, the only identity I have.
My real name, whatever it was, was stripped from me when I was sold into slavery at age eight.
I am now 20, and no more than property, my only purpose working in the palace.
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.

Will they see past the differences between their races and help each other to survive?

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

Rise of the Sphinx series by J. Kearston

I thought life was hard enough. Widowed young and left to raise my daughter alone, I never expected the threats I would have to shield her from. Magic, monsters, and three men fighting to protect their final hope. I have nothing to gain, but everything to lose… or so I thought.

Hell Hounds Harem by Briana Michaels

Hunted by dark spirits, she’s running out of options…

At first glance, she probably seemed like any woman in her prime – Full of life, fearless, and dances like everyone’s watching. Except no one is because she’s dead. Worse than dead, she’s invisible. No one can see, hear, or feel her and who can live dead like that? Oh, by the way, she also has no idea who she is, how she died, or who killed her.

As if that’s not bad enough, dark spirits are hunting her. Knowing she can’t fight them off forever, she’s running out of options and is determined to do whatever it takes to survive.

Enter Jack, with his killer smile and wicked sharp blades.

He can see her. Touch her. And kisses like a sinner with no interest in finding salvation.

When Jack offers her a chance of a lifetime, she’s all too eager to accept his help and follow him home. What she finds when they go through his front door defies everything she thought life was about. He isn’t just her savior. He’s something far more dangerous.

And he doesn’t live alone.

Can she trust her instincts and navigate through the fog of her past to find out what happened to her? If so, how does Jack play a role in her life… and death?

Legends of Asteria Series: Not Your Basic Witch Trilogy by AJ Macey and Jarica James

Aris Calisto, newest student at Aether Academy of Crystal Magic and Witchcraft not only stands out with her quirky outfits and bubblegum pink hair but also draws attention by being what’s considered the lowest of the low in the Akasha society- a Mixta.

When mysterious things start happening, including unexpected bindings, things going missing, and being claimed by a not-so-traditional familiar, Aris realizes she’s in over her cotton candy-colored head. Enter in the five guys who have been magically roped into Aris’s rodeo:

-Caspian, the playful potions brewer,
-Drayce, the summoner who never seems to get overwhelmed,
-Kye, a broody rune drawer who Aris can’t help but pester,
-Xan, the spell caster with no sense of humor to speak of,
-and Torryn, the history professor who seems to demand every waking hour working on mastering her power.

With a cauldron full of men behind her, can Aris use her i’magic’nation to figure out what’s happening to her capricious coven? Or will she find out that life’s a real witch?

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.

Feathers and Fate by Sadie Moss

Nobody warned me these men are hot as sin.

It makes sense, I guess. They are the Seven Sins, after all.

And what’s a fallen angel doing hanging out with guys like this, you ask? Well… that’s a long story that starts with me breaking a teeny-tiny rule and ends with me getting kicked out of Heaven.

Oops.

But now I’ve got a chance to go back! There’s just one little catch: I’ll only be allowed to return to Heaven if I can bring the Seven Sins with me.

Yup. You heard that right. I have to redeem them. All of them.

It shouldn’t be so hard. I’ve got a plan of action all set.

Step 1: Stop thinking dirty thoughts about them.
Step 2: Recruit their help to close up the strange demonic portal that just opened in Manhattan.
Step 3: No, seriously, stop thinking dirty thoughts about them.

Uh oh. This might not be as easy as I thought…

Author KC Freeman #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author KC Freeman

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hi, I’m KC Freeman, contemporary fantasy and paranormal romance author. I live in North Carolina, USA with my husband, 5 kids, and fur baby, Harley. Before returning to my first love of writing, I did the usual – college (University of Maryland grad school), career (government mostly), marriage (married wonderful man 5 years younger so he can keep up with me), kids (5 – 2 in college now, 3 in high school).

I am grateful I finally have time to dive into all the stories bouncing around in my head since … forever.

My personal interests have always hovered within the realm of the supernatural, particularly angels and guardian angels. But there was not a lot of books to quench my interest so I decided to write them myself.

In my sparetime (ha! that’s few and far between), I like to read paranormal fiction, historical fiction, and have just started research into the ancient texts that were excluded from the Bible – there’s a lot of interesting stuff there. I also enjoy hiking but no one else in my family likes to join me so I don’t go too much. However, once a year my daughter and I participate in the Princess Mud Run (a 5K obstacle race where – true to the name – we come out covered in mud…everywhere).

My favorite authors are Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Stephen King, Anne Rice, Sarah J Maas, Cassandra Clare, Philippa Gregory, Michelle Moran, and Danielle Trussoni (who fueled my interest in angels with her book “Angelology”).

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Always. Always. Always. When I was a small child, I would peck out stories, plays, poems on my mom’s electric typewriter. Probably would have stuck with it, but was pushed to choose a college degree and career that was “safe and secure” financially so I became an accountant/auditor (hated every second).

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’ve always been interested in angels, particularly guardian angels. The story has banged around in my head since I was in my teens.

What are you working on now?

I’m wrapping up the edits to the third book in the GREYLYN THE GUARDIAN ANGEL series. I am also contributing a dragon shifter short story to a new anthology due to be released in the fall. However, I am most excited about my new series about a suburban mom who unsuccessfully keeps her “woo woo” psychic abilities in the closet. The best I can come up with a category to describe it would be paranormal cozy mystery.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Not really. I’ve written in my office (now claimed by my husband since COVID shutdowns so I’m now writing in a corner of the attic living room), in the car waiting on my daughter to finish swim practice, on the back patio, etc. I prefer my office and quiet (I can’t be creative if my son is playing Xbox in the next room or my husband is on a client call in the office). I do like to keep my crystals and visual inspirations nearby.

What are your hopes for the future?

My dream is to have the entire GREYLYN series in a boxset by the holidays with a couple short stories or novellas next year. However, my main focus is to make the new series, The Memoirs of a Mystic Mom, into a series where I publish two or three a year.

I also hope to travel more in the near future as I had just renewed my passport for a trip to Ireland before COVID hit.

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

In this career, we have a not-so-hidden syndrome we all suffer from. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. It’s called “imposter syndrome”. It is brought on completely by our subconscious negative beliefs about ourselves. Find a group/tribe of fellow authors who can support you during your bouts of doubt because it is completely a figment of your imagination. You are worthy of being successful as a writer. Trust yourself, your talent. Trust your story. Be true to your story. I found a wonderful group of supportive friends within the Scribophile community so I highly recommend the website for new and existing authors. I just wrote a post in my Facebook group, Soul Scribes about “embers in the wind”. It’s great advice for not withholding your story, your words, your fire from the world due to fear, or the monster imposter syndrome. If you do, the words, the fire suffocates and dies. Release your words, your story, your light to the world to fuel the light/fire in others. This is our purpose as authors. Not to keep something clutched tightly to ourselves but to release it so others may benefit from its energy.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Hang tight. We had a huge delay with the release of the 2nd book in the GREYLYN series when the publisher suffered economic setbacks last year and has now closed its business. Now, with the story rights in hand, I am relaunching the first book (3/23/2021) with some tweaks and revamped cover; and the rest of the series (Book 2 – Revelations; Book 3 – Redemption) WILL BE PUBLISHED THIS YEAR. Thank you for your patience and support.

(I will be forming a street team in the next few weeks, so be on the lookout for that as well)

Author Jenna Lee #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Jenna Lee

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I’m an USA today bestselling author, writing coach and youth mentor who supports daring teens and women to discover themselves through writing. Most days you can find me writing out the stories that take over my mind, supporting people to write their way to bravery and creating empowering content.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, and I didn’t think it was possible. During my teen years I didn’t like reading straight away but I did fall in love with journal writing. This is where my journey to writing started. By learning to express myself through my writing, it supported me through my darkest moments and helped me to connect to myself on a deeper level. I fell in love with reading after I left school and it gave me that beautiful escape from reality.

What are you working on now?

My past three books have been in the non-fiction space which I love but I am looking forward to diving back into fiction writing. My next book is reverse harem, enemies to lovers and it’s got so many twists and turns.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to have a cup of green tea, playlist that relates to what I’m working on, headphones on to block out any outside noise and any distractions out of reach.

What are your hopes for the future?

To continue to empower budding authors to write their story and to heal through their writing.

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

Don’t let fear hold you back, start writing your story and let those words flow from within you. Remember that editing comes once you are finished, avoid editing as you go as the words won’t flow as well. Believe in yourself and know that we all have a story within us that’s ready to be unleashed.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for your support and for offering your kind words. Your encouragement goes such a long way so if you love a story tell the author this. It would mean the world to them.

Author Valerie Mars #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Valerie Mars

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hello, world! I am 29 years old and hail from Alaska, where I graduated with a BA in Japanese before teaching in Japan for 3 years. Upon returning home, I became a barista on the Alaskan oil fields. Currently, I write while readying myself for motherhood this summer.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

This all feels like a prank that went too far. When COVID shut down my coffee shop in March, I was able to find work in the same facility cleaning toilets and vacuuming hallways. During those long, repetitive 12 hour days I discovered a story taking shape within my mind. I started listening to writing podcasts, taking notes, and in May began writing Ferrous. I figured it would flicker out by June, but for some reason I kept going. You have toilets to thank for this book.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I think I was in a reading rut at the time, horribly craving something reverse harem with a rich fae world. I wasn’t finding what I was looking for, and decided to craft my own. A bit of a fever dream, maybe.

What are you working on now?

I ought to be working on Zealous, the next book in the Fae’s Folly world, but I’ve been reading Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series instead! *guilty look* I discovered her books during my research phase last spring, but swore them off until I had developed my own world. They’re my reward for releasing Ferrous.

Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to eat Skittles, but they can only be the green ones. I’m currently searching for a PA to take up the task of sorting them for me. But, nah. In all seriousness, I’m pretty boring. My favorite place to write was in my room on the oil field, because it was dead quiet. And dinner was always prepared for me! When at home, I prefer Ghibli instrumental soundtracks or something related so that I don’t get distracted by the soundtracks of my neighborhood or family. There’s a Ghibli cello one with a HEADBANGING rendition of the Totoro theme song, I tell ya.

What are your hopes for the future?

To push out a healthy baby this summer and to see my husband discover his own fever dream. In the short term, I hope to discover my readers and create a great sequel for them. :3

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

[The End] is only the start for indie authors. Unless blessed with full pockets and friends in convenient places, you will not only be a writer, but an editor and entrepreneur as well. The good news is, there are resources out there. It will be a journey of discovery you must take on your own, but you are 100% capable of taking it. And when you do, be proud of yourself. You earned it.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I am horrible at taking any sort of praise. 5 years into my marriage, I STILL struggle to accept the love of my in-laws. So while I may be stoic most times, know that your kind words and enthusiasm have brought many tears and giddy spurts of energy over the creation and release of Ferrous. I’ve said this too many times already, but I am so glad to hear Ferrous may have made you laugh or read past your bedtime. ❤ Thank you for telling me.

The Rise by @AdellRyanAuthor #newrelease

The Rise: A Reverse Harem Romance (Daughter of Perdition Book 2)

Pain and love are fickle things.

Here in Ceteris, both are often intertwined and shackled — invisible chains that dictate how and when each will be experienced.

Those invisible manacles are heavy, and they ache… and I am so incredibly tired of bearing them.

With help from the group of men I have begun to fall for — giant, demon, fallen angel, assassin, teacher, and mediator — we intend to break free from those restraints.

The time has come that we realize our purpose as influencers of sin and reform the rules, taking back what should have never been stolen from us to begin with.

But something stirs inside me, eager to vacate and be given a voice. 

Something obscure, promising both pain and love.

Something that, once liberated, will change our existence for eternity.

Are we a strong enough unit to overcome the anguishing love and harrowing pain its liberation may bring? Or will it keep us fettered just as surely as those manacles we are so eager to escape?

This is a 97,000+ word, full-length steamy Dark High Fantasy, Paranormal Reverse Harem Romance novel.

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 . . .
