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?

Emerge by @KendramorenoA and @poppywoods9 #newrelease

Emerge: A High Fantasy Reverse Harem (The Blooming Courts Book 4)

Hanasaki ravages 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’s season comes to a screeching halt when every Shadow she’s ever feared comes to light. Blessings have fallen into her lap, but Ila is starting to feel like she’s cursed. 

Ila must find her way through the darkness or learn to live with it. She never realized how much pain lived in her world. She certainly never realized that it would be a constant companion on her travels. 

Tuatha is on the brink of war and the Blooming Courts are at risk of falling to the Orchidasi Queen. Ila is determined to bring peace to the realm, but she never knew the costs. 

When the storm rages, Ila must rage in return. 

After all, the courts aren’t the only things that must bloom. . .

Review

Author Kendra Moreno #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

This question always makes me scramble to find things interesting about me. lol. so, I’m an author and I write in multiple genres including, but not limited to, Dark Fantasy, Steampunk, and Paranormal. I’m a mom to a crazy active toddler boy and a Great Dane. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing and Marketing. When I’m not writing, I’m usually doing other things like designing, painting, crafting, and even doing those fancy designer cookies when I feel up to the task. lol. Umm, I’m also a certified scuba diver and I got to dive with sharks before which was awesome.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always been a writer but I never understood I could pursue writing as a career until I started college. I always wanted to be an author, but I never had it up there as what I was gonna pursue. Would you believe my first major was zoology? lol. Eventually, I got smart and realized I wasn’t chasing my dreams and I dove in head first.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So my current one is my fairytale retellings. Vicious as a Darling is book 1 in the Daughters of Neverland series, which is a spin off of the Sons of Wonderland series. I’ve always been a fairytale retelling fan, especially of the darker spins. I love horror so the idea was to thread horror elements into the story while it could still be considered Romance. And so these Horror Romance fairytale twists were born. 😀 For Neverland, I wanted to do something completely different from anything I’ve seen before (there are so many retellings) and I think everyone is really gonna love the horror twist on everything.

°

°

What are you working on now?

Right now, in addition to working on Vicious as a Darling, I’m also working on a sequel to my Steampunk RH, Clockwork Butterfly. It was meant to be a standalone but due to popular demand, Vic and her guys are getting another adventure. I’m also working on a new steampunk series that’s menage. The Prequel, Gears of Winter, released in an Anthology at the beginning of November. Poppy Woods and I are also working on a secret project I think everyone will love.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I’m not sure if I have any unusual quirks. My playlists might be considered that I guess. For every book I write, I have a specific playlist for it. But I’m a fan of instrumental music. So I have a lot of battle and war drum music in my playlists. My favorite is Audiomachine! They produce some kickass stuff. ::whispers:: I listen to it at full volume in my car with the windows down and I get the best looks when they hear war drums.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I think the hope is to always take my passion and turn it into something that not only supports my family, but that I can show my son one day that I achieved my dreams. Right now, my next goal is to be able to claim International Bestseller. I also just want to keep writing things I love.

°

°

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

There are three important things when publishing your first book. Cover, Blurb, and editing. Without a good cover, people might not look at your book. We’re all guilty of judging them by the covers and a great one will sell the book easier. If the blurb doesn’t catch their attention next, they might bypass it. If you’re not great at blurbs, there are services that will help or even asking other authors or friends for advice is fantastic. And never skimp on editing. It’s a chunk of change but it’s worth it to put out a quality book rather than having reviews come in claiming the editing was bad or to get quality notices from amazon. If you do those three things, readers will definitely want to read your story and will come back for more.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Without my readers, I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am. I was so worried when I started publishing that I was too weird, that my stories were too different, and y’all embraced me so hard and have never let me go. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around, for trying new worlds I write, for reviewing the books when they come out. Because of you, I able to keep doing what I love, and that makes me so happy. Let’s all stay a little mad, and a whole lot of awesome!

The Horror Emporium by @K_AKnight @poppywoods9 @KendramorenoA #newrelease

Happy release day, ladies 🎉🎉🎉

The Horror Emporium by Poppy Woods K.A. Knight, Kendra Moreno

°

°

Welcome to the Horror Emporium…

We have something for everyone but choose wisely.

There’s no turning back…

Brought to you from the minds of the 3way, your Halloween is about to be a little bit scarier. Fate is controlling. Things lurk below. The devil wears a pretty face.

Are you afraid? You should be…

Head Case: A Halloween Classic Reimagined by @poppywoods9 and @KendramorenoA

Head Case: A Halloween Classic Reimagined by Poppy Woods & Kendra Moreno

°

Welcome to Whisperwood Sanitorium…

Kenzie has lived in Whisperwood since she was a child. She’d fallen into a strange but happy routine that included her best friend and boyfriend, but when he’s fired for inappropriate conduct, Kenzie begins to spiral. Her fixation on the newest resident becomes a welcome distraction but as Halloween approaches, she starts to wonder where Crane’s delusions end and a strange reality begins.

…where the petting zoo gets a little insane.

°

°

Crane has always avoided the living at all costs, his job in the morgue only helping his desires. When he runs into a mysterious stranger at a bar one night, his life takes a sudden turn into hell. Now, he’s hearing a mysterious voice and the proper jerk has a fascination with heads. Willingly checking himself into Whisperwood should have been the answer to his problems. Instead, the feisty blonde with a taste for trouble only seems to make his own yearning for blood stronger.

°

°

When All Hallows Eve crashes down upon Kenzie and Crane, will they be strong enough to survive the massacre, or will they remain locked within the suffocating walls of Whisperwood Sanitorium?

°

°

**Head Case contains depictions of gore, blood, and a sexy Horseman. Don’t forget to mind your head…**
